Welcome to Becoming Hair Studio. I'm Susann, AKA “Boss Lady”, originally from Sydney, Australia and after 5 more countries and moves, I call Aurora/Newmarket my home.

As a mom of two University Students (both girls) and a 5 year old Cockapoo - Cooper, I know the importance of work/life balance and the empty nester sadness. I also understand the importance of delivering the best of me for our clients, salon team and my family.

You won’t find me behind the chair as an owner. I decided early into ownership/leadership that I wanted to be there 100% for the amazing clients of Becoming Hair Studio and my salon team - I want to see them shine and support their own professional journey. I absolutely love the connection I make with our clients and watching my amazing salon team work their magic on each clients hair journeys. Don't get me wrong, I love all things hair and I love to support our team and you will still see me assisting with hair washes and rocking an amazing blow dry. Yes, you can call me an assistant. Lol.

When I'm not at the salon you will find me at home with my pup, either binge watching anything reality TV or continuing my education as a leader in this ever evolving industry. I'm obsessed with both. Yes, I’m an educational geek.

As a side note - I love change and the challenge it brings. I redecorate or renovate in times of stress as our clients and my kids see every time they walk into the salon or our home. Lol.

I don't think you will meet an owner who is so incredibly proud and supportive of their team and salon as you will in me. I see them as my extended family and treat them as such.

Hi, I'm Denise, lead Master stylist at Becoming Hair Studio.

I would love the opportunity to welcome you to my chair, where I bring with me almost 40 years experience in the beauty industry.

I'm a precision cutter and colour expert, specializing in all the latest techniques and trends. But before we start our hair journey together, I would like the opportunity to tell you a bit about who I am, both behind and beyond the chair, to help you decide if I'm the stylist for you!

I began my career in 1984 and it has been a fantastic ride, full of wonderful experiences! I've had the privilege to work with some incredible artists, I've been mentored by amazing masters of the industry, as well as having the honour of mentoring young, fresh talent and watch them achieve their goals🙂. But my most valuable and satisfying win, is the one that we achieve together when you sit in my chair. That's where the heart and soul of my craft lives!

When you are in my chair, my total focus is on you and my main goal during out consultation is to LISTEN!. That is the first step in helping me meet all of your hair needs. Together we will decide on a very personalized hair plan that suits your hair, your lifestyle and your personal image. I promise the transformation will be amazing!

Who am I besides a hairstylist? I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a friend. I'm sensitive, intuitive and an empath, mixed in with a bit of over thinking! I enjoy fashion, anything vintage, French, shiny or blingy - the 60s is my favourite Era and my biggest fashion influencer.

My artistic flare serves me well in my life outside the salon where I apply my love for colour and makeovers to antique and vintage furniture that I transform into unique accents that decorate my home.

Which brings me back to hair....I live it, I love it and I do it well because I love it!

So bring me your inspirations and goals, whether it's a new colour, a dimensional balayage or a new hairstyle, I'm confident that you will be completely satisfied with your results!

Please follow me on Instagram where you can see my complete body of work.

Feel free to DM me with any questions or concerns @blond.bouj.androuge

Hello Beautiful!! I’m Chelsea, originally from Surrey, England and am now proudly serving the Aurora, Ontario community.

Since I was little, I've loved playing with hair and trips to the salon were my favourite. I enjoy working with people and find it's a fun, exciting and rewarding industry to be a part of. My goal is to help women look and feel their best.

As a mom of two, I understand the true value of "me time". Taking a few hours to yourself to refresh, renew and relax is so important. I'm passionate about creating an excellent guest experience and I pride myself on my professional and friendly approach.

I have been in the industry for 20 years and love connecting with people. I specialize in tape-in extensions, fusion extensions and natural looking, dimensional colors. I make it a priority to keep my education up to date, learning new skills and techniques keeps the creative juices flowing!

When I'm not at the studio, you can find me cooking or creating new recipes or at a local eatery - I'm a huge foodie, so if you're looking for a recommendation for somewhere great to eat, I'm your girl!

I find my peace in nature and often go for walks with my lovely husband, two teens and my little Yorkie-Poo Pepper. In the summer, we enjoy glamping around Ontario parks - the lakes are stunning!

My wanderlust has led me to many parts of the world already and I cannot wait to explore more.

I find immersing myself in different cultures eye opening and exciting - I live for new experiences!

Welcome ! My name is Louie Figliuzzi, a senior stylist at Becoming Hair Studio. I have been serving the Aurora & Unionville area for over 30 years.

Hair is my game where you will have nothing to gain but a beautiful mane. Precision cuts - especially the intricate lines and angles of short styles are my speciality and passion.

You can also find me, in the warmer months, landscaping in my backyard - my true oasis. I love taking something plain and boring, elevate it to look prestige and elegant - just as you see me do behind the chair.

I pride myself in my consultations. I love getting to know my clients style, face shape, hair texture and lifestyle and we work together in creating incredible hair.

I thrive on picking the perfect colour & cut for your lifestyle and daily routine. Its important to understand your comfort zone in all aspects of your hair journey and I promise to keep it anything but boring!

jessy brown

salon coordinator

Hi !! My name is Jessy, one of Becoming Hair Studio’s salon coordinators. I am originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia and have called Aurora home for over 15 years. Where does the time go?

I started with Becoming Hair Studio after 11 years owing my own business working closely with realtors to ensure your home was buyer ready. Attention to detail is my middle name or as the Becoming Family jokes - OCD is my middle name. Lol. It's true - I own it !!!

Excellent customer service runs through my blood. I may not be the person working on your hair; but, I make sure all aspects of your appointment run smoothly and you feel as good as you look. I am also obsessed with the salon being spick and span for all of our guests. It's not unusual to see me crawling on the floor cleaning the base boards or standing on ladders wiping down the ceiling. Did I say I was obsessed? Lol.

When I am not at the salon, I love spending time at the cottage with my family and friends and decorating/redecorating my home (boss lady and I get along very well - he he).

Can't wait to chat on the phone with you or see you at the salon - back to cleaning I go :)


victoria jarstad

salon coordinator

Hi everyone!

I’m Victoria, one of Becoming Hair Studio’s Salon Coordinator - the friendly voice on the other end of the phone when you call us and the smile behind the counter ensuring all went well at your appointment and getting you all squared away for the next one.

When I’m not at the salon, you can probably find me with one of my two dogs, online shopping, or searching up the closest sushi place near me!

I am an events marketing student and I’m currently building my knowledge and experience within the salon industry at Becoming Hair Studio. I dont think Boss Lady will let me ever leave !! Hehehe.

At the salon, you’ll probably recognize me as the girl with the long eyelashes, hair extensions, and nails. Working at Becoming has given me the opportunity to express myself with all things beauty related. My two favourite ways to style my hair are sleek straight like Kim K, or fun beach waves that I see the stylists do all the time - sometimes I get lucky and they do it for me - call me spoilt ;)

Well that is a bit about me and my background at Becoming. I’ll talk to you when you need your hair done next!

When I'm not at the salon, I am a very proud kindergarten educator, that spends my days learning alongside the little ones. As well as being a mom to 3 children!!!

I have joined the becoming team currently building my knowledge and experience within the salon industry. Along with gaining a new work family.

Boss Lady Sue has opened her arms in welcoming me along with the becoming family and I am overjoyed to bring nothing but the best experience to your pampering day as soon and you enter and exit the salon!!!
