Azure Salon Spa Medispa uses tiered pricing based on our stylist experience levels. All our stylists deliver exceptional services, participate in ongoing education and skill-building but nothing can replace the value of years of experience perfecting their craft.
Our New Talent Stylists are professionals who have recently been certified or are working toward their certification. When visiting us for an appointment with a New Talent Stylist please keep in mind that you are a part of the learning experience but can still expect fabulous customer service and the highest quality technical work from our New Talent Stylists.
Our Accomplished Stylists have accumulated a great amount of experience behind the chair and are well equipped to offer more advanced solutions for hair colour. They regularly attend classes and workshops to perfect their skills. They are able to give their clients current looks, using advanced techniques, while always making the integrity of the hair a top priority.
Our Master Stylists are elite in their craft and have the largest demand for their time behind the chair. They travel to advanced education classes and bring back knowledge to their team. Master Stylists are our Salon leaders and as such, they are booked very far in advance. We recommend pre-scheduling two or more appointments in advance to ensure availability in their busy schedule.
