Salon Title: Owner, Master Stylist
Academy Title: Educator
I entered the profession in 1993 and opened my first salon in 1996. After almost a decade’s experience, I became a Eufora Global Business Trainer in 2005. I travelled and trained salon professionals extensively until 2012 and I developed business education and salon business systems for people all over North America. I opened La Luma Salon in November, 2007, then opened the Academy in June 2010. I love cutting hair, especially short and naturally curly hair. I’m passionate about developing young professionals since I really love to teach and pass on my experiences. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time in the natural world. I also enjoy art and architecture.

Salon Title: Master Stylist
Academy Title: Director of Education and Leadership
Hello, my name is Christy and I am a Master Stylist at La Luma Salon. I believe hair is our best accessory. It is the one accessory we always have with us. With this in mind, I want to create styles for my guests that work for them everyday. I love structured and detailed haircuts, ie. short trend, men’s barbering, bobs, texture, etc, and ultimately want to create a look for my guests that keeps working for them until their next visit. When I am not on the salon floor, I am Director of Education and Leadership in the Academy, La Luma’s private career college. I’m teaching our students not only the technical skills and theory of hair, but the leadership, teamwork and workplace skills needed to build successful and empowered careers. What I love about La Luma is our commitment to people and education. We stand for our stylists' and students' lives, careers, and well-being everyday. This transfers to our guests through our unique team focused culture where every member of our team, staff and student, is focused on giving every guest the best experience possible. We are focused on every guest looking and feeling their best both in the salon and outside it.

My name is Natalie and I’m one of the senior stylists at La Luma. I’ve been with La Luma for 3-½ years and I've been styling for 2-½ years after I earned my Diploma from La Luma Academy. I also have certificates for Advanced Blonding and Men’s Image Crafting. My favourite days involve cutting, balayage, fantasy colours, and razor cuts. If you're looking for a transformation or big change to your style, cut, or colour, let's talk - I have a very on-trend kind of style and would love to be involved in realising your styling dreams! When I’m not at work, I love travelling, and taking pictures, especially of nature and architecture. You can see some of the work I’m proudest about on my Instagram page.

Daniella Della Croce

Salon Title: Junior Stylist
Academy Title: Educator
Hello, I'm Daniella and I'm proud to be a part of the La Luma team for the past 2 years. I have an Advanced Blonding certificate, Men’s Image Crafting, and Advanced Fading.  I have had a love for hairstyling since the age of 12. My love of hair sparked from doing hair for myself and my friends during dance classes, competitions and recitals, and my passion grew ever since. I love doing lightening services, colours, hair extensions, and men’s cuts, but I would say I am best known for special event up-dos, wedding hair, prom hair...etc. There’s something very exciting about being a part of someone’s special day. I particularly love making connections with guests, getting to know them and hearing the interesting things they have to share. What keeps me loving what I do is seeing a smile after a service is complete or knowing that I have the ability to make someone’s day a little bit brighter.
