Aujha Hastings: Stylist/Makeup Artist

Aujha has completed advanced Aveda training and continues to participate in ongoing education at every opportunity. Having advanced Aveda training includes what is known as “vision-crafting” where she can determine how a colour or cut can affect your face shape, which allows her to make better recommendations. Her favourite specialties include highlights, colour, balayage, ombre, colour-melting, and colour corrections. When doing a big change, she recommends coming in for a complimentary consultation to review every aspect of your desired look. She also loves to complete your look with a beautiful blow-out.
