Texture Hair Salon

Ramsey

Ramsey

Owner

Hello. My name is Ramsey Sayah. I am Master Stylist, with over 20 years of industry experience and owner of two successful and thriving salons in Ottawa. I opened Texture Hair Salon in 2000 and ten years later I opened Texture Hair Boutique.

I take great pride in our award winning team of Stylists and although I have been a mentor to them – I draw inspiration from them every day. I am very proud of my career to date, but there is still so much more to learn and do!

In addition to working in the salon, I’ve worked as a columnist, on television sets and competed in many hair competitions.

Even though my clientele list includes actors, athletes and politicians – my philosophy is to treat every guest that walks into our salon like a celebrity.

As a Wella Professionals Consultant I have traveled all over North America – trying to make my mark on the industry. I have attended many educational seminars around the world on both hair styling and business.

What can I say… I’m a rock star!
I’ve been a stylist in the greater Ottawa area for 15 years now and just can’t seem to get enough. It has been said that I have an excellent reputation for taming the mane, whether it be the unruly, dry, frizzy type, or the fine limp type that just has no ‘oomph!’

I started my career as a stylist in the early 1990s specializing in ethnic hair, mastering weaves to relaxers and who can forget those finger weaves!

I have since broadened my horizons and trained with some of Canada’s best Wella professional platform artists, learning the latest in cutting and competitive colouring techniques. In 2006, I competed in the L’Oreal Colour Trophy and placed in the top 10 across Canada. I continue to compete in hopes of one day becoming the next Canadian Hair Stylist of the Year. I have been part of the Texture family since it’s launch in 2000 and have watched it blossom into what is has become today — an upscale, trendy, environment allowing young, ambitious artists to express their flare for hair.

So, if you’re on the hunt for a new stylist, come on down and have a cappuccino with me by the bar and get TEXTURIZED!

Hello beautiful people! I’ve been in the industry since 2003, and I can’t see myself doing anything else! Hair is not just my job – it’s my life! I love my job and I love making my guests happy every visit. I tell every guest, “life it too short to have boring hair”! Have fun with it! I’ve worked with all types of hair, and I love a challenge.

I’ve entered many hair competitions, starting with the 2013 Sebastian What’s Next Competition where I won Gold. It was such an unbelievable experience. In 2015 I placed in the top 7 for all of Canada in the Young Talent division of the North American Trendvision Competition.

I believe it’s important to keep yourself educated in the industry. I go on courses 2-3 times a year and got my Master Colourist, Master Cutting and Creative Colour and Cut Diploma. I have travelled to New York, Toronto and Los Angeles for some of the best education available.

I can’t wait to meet you – get ready to be happy and beautiful!

Stylist

I literally started from the bottom now I’m here! I started working at Texture in 2007 when I was just starting highschool. I’m very lucky to have been able to learn from such talented people starting at a young age, and the passion of the Texture staff is a big part of what made me the stylist I am today.

I graduated from Algonquin’s hairstyling program in 2011, and I’ve continued my training with Wella’s amazing artistic team. Some of the courses I’ve taken include Sebastian Urban Men’s Cutting, Sebastian’s Advanced Women’s Cutting, Wella Master Colour and Colour Correction. I worked as an assistant twice for the National Trendvision Competition, in both LA and Vegas. They say a good assistant makes a great stylist – and I’d like to think I’m proof of that!

If you’re looking for a bomb fade I’m your man, and I love free-hand ombre and balayage for you ladies! I love all types of hair – so bring it on! I’m a perfectionist who takes pride in my work - I’ll always make sure you’re 100% happy before you leave my chair. Whether you’re 7 or 70, I look forward to meeting you.

I started out at Texture as an assistant, shampooing and assisting the talented team of stylists. This experience made me want to become one of them – to be the person who makes people beautiful and helps them to feel amazing about themselves. I completed school and continue to learn, taking extra courses with Wella’s finest, expanding my knowledge of creative colour, balayage, and Wella’s Freelights and Magma colour lines. I continue to keep working to perfect my craft and challenging myself every day. I’m great with men’s cuts and shorter styles, and ombre and balayage colouring techniques.

Stylist

I’ve been passionate about hair for as long as I can remember. I started doing hair working at Diversity braiding and doing extensions around 2005. I graduated from Versailles Academy in 2015 with honours, placing 2nd in my graduating glass. I’m fully certified for both Goldwell and Wella Colour.

I took Sebastian’s Razor cutting course in 2015, and I’ve been excited to apply it to many of my cuts, especially bobs, which I excel at. I’m great with adding body to fine hair, and creating polished, finished blowouts and styles.

Arielle

Stylist

My name is Arielle Campbell and I’ve been doing hair since 2009. At a young age I knew hair was something I loved, I was always trying to curl someone’s hair or force my mom to let me dye her hair all kinds of crazy colors. I grew up in Montreal and at the age of 17 decided to attend hair school there before moving to Ottawa where I really started my hair career. Since then, hair has become not only my job but my passion.
After 4 years of working in Westboro I decided to move to texture where I was welcomed with open arms. What can I say? I love the team and the amount of creativity and talent we all have. We all feed of each other which makes us all stronger hairstylists. I‘m proud to be working with one of the top hair coloring companies (as well as my favorite!) Wella. I’ve been working with Wella for years and I’ve taken part in a few of their classes to further my knowledge of their products. I‘ve also taken part in many other classes to perfect my skills in updos and color techniques. I’m always trying to expand in my knowledge in this industry, since it‘s an industry that’s forever changing. I love doing hair because I feel like I‘m always learning each day - it’s not only a job to me but it something I love doing!

Co-Owner

I always have to be at the top of my game!
 
I’ve been cutting hair for over 17 years before becoming an owner myself.
I met Ramsey in hair school and have seen him succeed tremendously. I strive for success and perfection, 
this is why I have teamed with such a great entrepreneur! I look forward to many happy years with a new family!
 
Being an educator for Wella, working with high school students on self-esteem, travelling the world to be 
inspired and taking more courses than I can count, mean nothing if I can’t work on everyday people. I
love hair shows and glamour. However, my passion is working behind the chair and creating for my
clients a look that will enable them to achieve self-esteem and pride. 
 
Hair is the reason you come to Texture, the relationships you make with our team is why you stay!

Hair styling and make-up is a creative form of arts. It’s a unique way to express an individual. This is what I love to do for a living and it’s my passion. Whether its hair or make-up, a touch up here or a trim there, it still makes your day better, I know it does for me. I’m honored to be that person in your life to make you look and feel amazing. I love the feeling of hair, I’m in my zone and I’m so focused. Whether it’s ethnic hair which I previously spent my first years specializing in or limp fine hair that needs body, I’m your girl. Go big or go home! =D I love the people I work with it’s an amazing environment. We all have great energy together and it really feels like my second family!
