Product Recommendation by Tahnee M. Hairstylist
BEAUTY – I am a Cree/Nakota woman from the Enoch Cree nation and have been in the beauty industry since 1998. I attended the Alberta Academy of Aesthetics where I learned how to wax, tint eyebrows and eyelashes; make up artistry, artificial nail enhancements and facials. Fresh out school I started my first job in West Edmonton Mall at a place called Faces Cosmetics where I did make-up artistry and artificial nails. I later spent more than a few years at Lush Hair and Body Studio as an aesthetician.
In 2007 I graduated from Choice Hair Design and started my hairstyling career back at Lush hair and Body Studio. In 2008 I started a 5 month Master colorist program and helped out with the 2009 Edmonton ABA hair trade show working with the Canadian Wella hair Team on the Wella stage. In 2010 I made the move to West Edmonton Mall and have been there since. I have always believed in continual education and have attended many different products knowledge, haircutting, hairstyling, hair coloring and hair extension classes. I look forward to learning more and sharing my knowledge and experiences with you.
In this section I will be bring to you products that I use and recommend as well as product comparisons and how to use these products. In some issues I will display hair how-to’s, I will discuss face shapes what is good for you in terms of make-up hair colors and cuts as well as suggesting what is good for your skin tone and eye color. I will display before and after pictures of our lovely First Nations women and sometimes share tips from some of our other talented beauty artists. This section is for all beautiful First Nations, Métis, Inuit and Indigenous women across the world.
My professional product recommendation of the month is one of my favorite go to products and is one of my must haves made by Schwarzkopf. Osis Sparkler is the product I recommend to my clients of all ages. I keep it on my shelf at work and I sell it like crazy. This light weight shine spray is packed with mega shine and is a game changer in your hair regiment.
Hair tip: When hair is damp almost dry, spray hair with Sparkler comb through and continue with blow drying. After extra styling (flat ironing) grab your metal round brush and heat with your blow dryer, then spray the brush with Osis Sparkler and run it through your hair.
My non professional product recommendation is Got2b Dazzling Shine Spray it is made by Schwarzkopf and is only sold in your local drugstores, supermarkets and department chain stores.
In comparison to Sparkler, Got2b Dazzling shine spray is a must have to let your style shine. Easy to use pump spray adds brilliant shine for smooth touchable hair.
Hair tip: Spray on damp hair before styling to smooth and de-frizz. Mist lightly (1-2 pumps) over dry finished styles for instant shine anytime
