In my opinion good hair is healthy hair. The qualities of healthy hair are bounce, body and brilliance. To achieve “Good Hair” one must understand its inherent nature and properties. My approach to hair and style is simple, holistic and organic.

On October 6 2014 i moved to Toronto to study Sassoon style and technique. I worked and apprenticed under Sassoon stylist and colour technicians. Ten months later i decided to peruse my business full time. Making Sheena’s Hair Care my number one priority. My goal is to offer a quality product and salon experience to curly textures. My greatest success is meeting this industry of professionals and the educated consumer with skill and open mind and great advice.
Above, Sassoon stylist and educators showcase classic and creative looks. So pure. No frills no gimmick – Vidal Sassoon.
Above I use Sassoon classic technique, Round Graduation to basically eliminate a weight line. For a super soft and airy finish best suited for this client. I love the precision of Sassoon cuts. The use of hard and/or soft lines to define shapes and movement is genius.
Above, is my attempt to correct a cut intended to be an angular bob. The client wanted to soften a dramatic, jagged angle and transition into a more traditional one length bob. This corrective cut produced a gradual one length bob with a soft weight line in the nape. I used Sassoon lines with Graduation to blend and sculpt the shape.
I am a stylist with specialized certification and knowledge of cosmetic formula for curly hair.
Four years in cosmetic formulation and laboratory development now incorporates fifteen months of beauty school and two years in salon training under industry professionals. I continue to strive to meet my personal and professional goals.
Today I’m passionate about Sheena’s because its helped me understand my hair and texture. With continued education and experience I’m able to share my knowledge of product and methods that work. My goal is to offer product and healthy hair management tips that encourage curly hair practice at home and in salon. Without the use of chemicals or heat and suitable for all curl textures.

The Blow Dry Set: Get quality and style in less time. A salon that understands the properties of the scalp and hair can help you get the look. We recommend using a salon that practices healthy hair management, utilizing tools and methods that maintain the integrity of your hair. Consult with your stylist to get the details on how to wash & blow dry in salon and at home. Watch a quick video tutorial on Wash & Blow dry styling.
My approach to hair is care first style after. Using hot tools with a light weight heat protectant, like eufora’s Beautifying Serum, offers style and healthy hair benefits. In the before and after image below mannequin hair gets a wash & blow dry style. We use beautifying serum and a bore bristle brush to smooth and shine the hair. We recommend Sheena’s Strengthening treatment after heat use or texture bending to fortify strands and reduce the appearance damage .
Quick tip: blow-dry hair only 92% to avoid static and fly aways. Allow hair to air dry 8% then set with a flexible hold hair spray to finish.
Above limp dull hair comes to life and maximize volume.
Above before and after. I used a twist curl set to minimize volume and accentuate curl definition.
Quick tip: After setting twist curls diffuse to dry and set. Once hair is dry you may separate individual twist curl to desired volume.
In the image below we work toward healthy looking hair with a cut that reduces split ends, adds volume and shape. I take a Sassoon classic approach to correct uneven lengths and damage.

Above I create shapes with minimal product and styling tools for an effortless finish.
