JOHNNY ARBA Founder
PAUL STRUB Co-Founder
My career in the hair industry started in 2002 at the age of 19. I studied in London Ontario at DeVoG hair academy, from which I graduated with honors. I quickly became addicted to the fast paced and ever evolving environment of hair styling. I moved back to the Kitchener-Waterloo area in 2004 to work with my friend and mentor Johnny. Today, I focus my talent on cutting, coloring and providing my clients with a style that suits their lifestyle.

Growing up with a hairstylist mother, I always knew my calling in life was to follow in her footsteps and become a hairstylist. With her mentoring combined with attending an amazing hairstyling academy in Stratford, my dream came true. Everyday, behind the chair I'm thankful because I'm living my dream. I love people and more so, I love making them feel and look fabulous. I'm always up for a creative challenge. I can't wait to have you in my chair so I can design a look for you.
