Who We Are
Introducing our talented team! Each stylist brings their own individual style to the chair, allowing them to showcase artistic and creative freedom and give our clients a well-rounded experience.
Since Nicole could talk, becoming a hair stylist was all that she had ever wanted to do. That passion fueled her dream to one day own a salon with a group of like-minded individuals, so after collaborating with her business-savvy brother, Mark, they opened Revive Hair Loft in 2012. Nicole has been in the hair industry for almost 20 years and is our leader in the salon; she fosters growth in others, never asks a team member to do something that she wouldn't do herself, and supports both her team and her clients with patience and encouragement. She always leads by example; while in hair school, Nicole won gold at Skills Canada but was unable to receive her award because she left once her competition was complete to make sure she wasn't late for her job! That's the dedication she's always had and continues to lead with every day. She's been the creative director of her own shows at Western Canada Fashion Week, has had her work published in multiple magazines including Phabrik, Blush, Coco Fashion, Country Fresh, and Elegant Magazine, has been an educator for Bumble & Bumble and Oribe, and has traveled to New York, L.A., Montreal, and Las Vegas for ongoing education. A triple-threat artist in cutting, colouring, and styling, Nicole is in her element when faced with anything from a detailed bridal up do, a complex colour correction, or a intricately detailed precision cut. In her own words, to “never stop learning, and always stay curious” has carried Nicole through her astounding career and has led her to develop into the top-tier artist that she is today.
Mark always knew he wanted to one day start his own business, but what he didn’t expect was that his sister, Nicole, wanted to start one too! Although the idea of a hair salon hadn’t occurred to him at the time, his business management education and customer service experience provided the perfect compliment to Nicole’s creative skill behind the chair. Mark has worked in the customer service industry for nearly 15 years and brings all his knowledge and experience to each interaction with his team and the clients at Revive. He thrives on connecting and engaging with people in meaningful ways, and the salon provides the perfect environment for just that. As Co-Owner and Operating Manager, you’ll often find Mark – well, anywhere and everywhere! Whether he’s assisting a client in-person or on the phone, organizing your online order, or managing the business behind-the-scenes, Mark’s attention to detail and organization ensures that everything gets done. His approachable demeanour and attentive personality will make you feel comfortable and listened to, and he will always make the time to sit down and engage with, support, and encourage his team. Mark's always preached that in order to grow you need to constantly learn new things and get outside your comfort zone; at Revive, he shows his team just that each and every day.
If you're calling to book an appointment, checking out, purchasing a product, or on our social media account, you're most likely speaking with Carlee. Carlee joined Revive in 2021 and yet it’s as if she’s been with us since the very beginning. As our Salon Coordinator, she manages the front-end of the salon the same way she brews a latte: flawlessly. In addition to her barista skills being *chef’s kiss*, Carlee also possesses a strong love for hair, books, Taylor Swift, and everything Marvel (so if you have any questions about plot holes or confusing story lines, she'll give you the run down). Her attention to detail, passion for organization, and joy for colour-coding everything are only a few reasons why the salon runs so smoothly. Her calm, assertive, and positive demeanour will be the first and the last thing you see whenever you visit Revive.
