Raya has three diplomas, one of which “worked out really well.” First was contemporary dance with The School of Toronto Dance Theatre and the second was a hospitality diploma from george brown. During which time she constantly offered to cut or colour hair for friends and family, likely motivated by her Nonna who is also a hairdresser. Finally, one day while blow drying and styling her mom’s hair she said “I’m so unhappy at my 9-5 I wish I could just do this all day” to which the response was “why don't you?” Raya, an Aveda Institute graduate, brings her other education to the way she approaches hairdressing.
Her time in hospitality inspires her to create entire experiences for clients while the work ethic drilled into her from contemporary dance is evident in her long hours of dedication to her clients. Raya is currently expanding her techniques in collaboration with Helen in order to better accommodate clients and further elevate the experience.
