My name is Joy-Marie Mitchell, but you can call me Joy!
I am married to an amazing man named Kaiyo, and together we have a beautiful daughter, Olivia, who was born October 31, 2016.
I have been styling hair for over sixteen years. I started hair school at just 16 years old, while completing high school.
I love the industry so much. It is my passion to continually learn, as well as keep updated with all the new styles and trends. I enjoy every aspect of hair; though I have to say, from day one I fell in love with colour. I’m quite the perfectionist when it comes to what I do and care so much about every little strand of hair. Small details count! I’ve always said hair is one of our most important accessories.
I come from a very artistic family. My great grandfather painted alongside the famous Canadian group of 7; art is in my blood! Designing, creating and painting the perfect colour and style to compliment my clients beauty is truly what I love.
I started my salon career at 18 in my neighbourhood salon. I worked there for three years, and then was recruited by Holt Renfrew Salon and Spa as a senior stylist. It was a great experience, which led me to meet many amazing people. After five years at Holts Salon I decided to venture into owning my own company, ‘Joy of Hair’, as a chair rental stylist, which I have been doing now for 7 years.
I feel so blessed to have found a career I love at such a young age, and I am beyond thankful for my encouraging family and friends.
