"I understand that your time at ORRiginal is more than routine hair maintenance.  It’s a quiet time reserved especially for YOU. "



Welcome to Orriginal

Departure Bay is a picturesque backdrop for my funky Beach Studio. You’ll likely see a BC ferry coming or going, a seaplane flying up above Newcastle Island, seagulls, eagles & deer enroute to your hair destination at 1645 Bay Street.  Welcome!


When you pull into my driveway, you’ll immediately notice a colorful, eclectic privacy fence constructed of water skis, surfboards, paddles & driftwood. The ocean breeze will gently sway a trio of palm trees. A big white hanging surfboard with the word "studio" & a large arrow point you towards the inviting glass entry door. Oyster shell wind chimes will softly chink. You’ll stop & admire the impressive ocean view as you move toward the door.


You’ll be greeted with a friendly smile as I lead you over to my chair & we’ll consult for up to 15 minutes about your hair needs. I’ll be analyzing your skin tone, eye color, head & face shape, the texture & condition of your hair & asking you questions. Maybe you’ll have some photos of hairstyles you’d like to show me.


I’ll recommend new products & services to help make your beauty routine run smoothly. I’ll show you & explain to you how to recreate your style at home while I’m doing it. Personal & professional, custom & creative…and I guarantee my work 100%. I’m confident you’ll be pleased.
