Veronique Dunand was practically born in a salon. Growing up in Geneva Switzerland, her grandparents were hairdressers, and so Veronique was immersed in that world from a very young age, already knowing she wanted to be a hairdresser when she was just 5 years old.

When she was old enough she moved to Paris to be classically trained and complete her extensive apprenticeship. She honed her skills and perfected her eye for creating a personal style for her clients. She moved to Canada, eventually bringing her European craft and sensibility to North Vancouver.

Veronique believes in building lasting relationships with her clients. She gets to know them well, what works for them and what doesn’t. She will follow up after an appointment to see how her client is feeling about a new style and offer tips and support for maintenance. Veronique cares deeply for her clients and is dedicated to working with them to bring out their best selves.
