Paula Whitelocke

Master stylist

Starting off her career as a braid stylist, Paula began at the young age of 13 years old by doing hair for friends and family. She has since then indulged in many different avenues within the Beauty Industry. From Lead Hairstylist at the Safara Fashion Show to Educating the Apprentice Hairstylists at Algonquin College. She now sits as Co-Chair on the Advisory Committee to influence the quality of education for the future generations of stylists. Continued education is second nature as Paula attends a minimum of one hair show a year frequenting shows such as the Bronner Bros. Hair Convention in Atlanta, the International Beauty Show in New York, the Extensions Expo in New Jersey and the ABA in Toronto. As a Joico/Iso colour educator, advanced trainings are attended throughout the year. After 5 years of business, it is a pleasure to have a Team that is committed to the quest to share Joy through the Hairstyling Experience. We do this for the Curls of the World!

Ermie Wallace - Curly Hair Designs

Ermie Wallace

Intermediate Stylist

Hair became a part of my life during highschool. Majority of my friends knew how to braid, eventually experimented with my hair to teaching me how to do them myself. Hairstyling was an elective class that I took that made my passion flourish. We had the class that was transformed into a complete salon & books. I was hooked. Braids, colours, styles, cuts-you name it. I even borrowed mannequin heads from class to practice braids wherever & whenever I could. I used my own hair to experiment with different styles & colours. I continued on with taking the co-op program &This was when the idea of taking the apprenticeship route was introduced. After graduating highschool I made my way to find jobs in salons to earn the hours I needed & to gain hands on experience. Then graduating with honours from Algonquin college. I believe experience & passion work side by side. Experience builds & passion motivates. I've had the opportunity to work at different types of salon environments, different products & different hair types. I take pride in knowing that I've started my career from being an assistant to now an intermediate stylist here at CHD.
