One of the things I think we can all agree on when you move is where do you find a good hair stylist? Let’s be honest, your hair is your best accessory so even when you’re not feeling your best, but your hair is on point, you’ll have a good day anyways. Our relationship with our hairstylist is close one. They hear all about your good, your bad, and if you’re good enough friends with them, they hear about your ugly. They also know when you’ve cut your own bangs or tried colouring your own hair before you even have to tell them.
That’s one thing I’ve searched for in Kitimat since relocating, is a good hair stylist in an environment that isn’t too posh and just the right amount of funk. Enter Texture Hair Design in the City Centre Mall on the second level. I posted on Facebook looking for a good stylist (I will add there are MANY TALENTED stylists in town I have chosen to see Shanna and her team first) and a wave of suggestions came my way. Texture came up time and time again so I booked an appointment. It had been about four months since my last cut so I was due. I booked an appointment with Cheyenne for my first cut. Turns out almost three months later, my cut still looks as good as it did the day she did it.
The next time I booked an appointment with Shanna to freshen up my fringe (I can’t stay away from a good fringe). What I found when I went in both times were a relaxed environment. The staff is easy to chat with and friendly to carry on a conversation with. It’s nothing pretentious and I felt at ease.
Shanna Gibson is a local, grew up here then moved away for a short period of time to Prince George. She moved back to Kitimat 8 years ago with her husband and FOUR children. Yes – FOUR. I have so much respect for a “mom-preneur” who can juggle a successful business and a busy family schedule.
TEXTURE only opened the fall of 2018 and has already expanded to include a nail bar, LASH extensions (which is a MUST) , waxing, reiki services and tarot card readings – basically you name it, they can do it.
So far, in 6 months, I’ve had 3 different services from Texture: Hair Cut, Hair Trim & Lash Extensions. Will I be back again? Definitely.
You can find Shanna’s team on Facebook and all the wonderful transformations they do in the salon on Facebook at:
or on Instagram at @texturedesign2 or
You can tell that Shanna and her team are talented and they love what they do. Each individual in the salon brings a terrific skill set to the clientele they service in town. Shanna loves the transformation of a good colour but she get’s excited about the precision of executing a good cut. Her “before and after’s” on Facebook really speak for themselves.
Bottom Line: you won’t be disappointed by what you get at Texture Hair Design so make sure you stop in to book when you get into Kitimat!
