She is experienced in all fields of the industry, including but not limited to; advanced hair cutting with a variety of styles of cutting, extensions, advanced colour services, perms, chemical straightening amazing pedicures, manicures as well as spray tanning.

Xylia has been lucky enough to be doing what she loves since 1992. She is a red seal trained stylist who has had the opportunity to live many places within our wonderful country. She has worked with some magnificent stylists and learned the most she could along the way. She started off with her training in Calgary.

She believes no matter how long you have been in the industry we should never stop learning & growing. She had the opportunity to raise her family here in Nanaimo, BC, which gives us a chance in the summer to go camping or on an adventure if she is not working or finding some other fun creative things to do.
