Michelle Pilon, owner and operator of Love Bird Bridal, hosted the swankiest affair to celebrate a new renovation! Her gorgeous store located on 172 Ontario Street, was the absolute perfect balance of vintage elegance. Thank you for the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of Kingston's wedding industry BESTS! Check out Love Bird Bridal here.
Meet Lacey Blaclock-Lalonde - Pro make up artist. This girl is so funny, and so sweet. She has been doing make up since she was old enough to hold a make up brush. A true professional, wickedly talented, and an absolute delight to spend time with. She does on site applications, lessons, and is an independant rep (read: if she uses a colour you love, you can actually take it home with you) . If ever you wanted to double up and get your hair and make up done for a fancy event, please email me here!
Meet Val Mitchell - Pro photographer. Val is a talented professional who has a natural warmth and charisma about her. After the first two minutes of chatting with her I felt like I'd known her for years. Being comfortable around a photographer is so important! Check out some of her stunning photos here!
Meet Emily Harmsen - the genius behind The Ginger House Hair Studio's LOGO! Aside from being artistically gifted, Em is patient, professional, and reliable. She made the process of designing the logo something exciting, and this project doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of her artistic abilities. Get in touch with Em about freelance opportunities, and check out her tumblr here.

IT’S A BOY!
Matthew Samuel Robert Sicoli was born on June 20, 2016 and with his bright red hair, he's the perfect addition to The Ginger House. Thank you all so much for your well wishes and thoughtful notes. He’s amazing, and Tim and I have officially morphed into “those parents”. We are gaga over this kid and I’ll try my hardest not to blab about him endlessly during your next appointment. We’re excited and absolutely over the moon in love with our wee man.
I’m writing this note to let all of you know that I have returned to work on reduced hours. You are welcome to text, call or email, should you have any specific comments, questions or concerns. Pre-book here!
TGH preps for a baby!
My husband Tim and I are expecting the arrival ( due June 29th 2016) of our first baby any day! Look at how blissfully naive I look :) My mat leave has begun, and we have started our trot down this path of parenthood, enchantedly unaware of what the heck we're doing.
I expect to return in November 2016, ready for the Christmas rush! As you know, I take great pride in my performance and the quality of my work. I have been in touch with a few of my respected and trusted stylist friends to ensure that your needs will be taken care of in my absence. I worked at Luce Hair Studio for six years and will continue to hold them in the highest regard with an excellent report. We share the same product line and most of the same education. Although you are, of course, entitled to see whomever you wish; this is simply my "go to" list of referrals, should you require some advice of who to see while I'm away!
During my absence your point of contact will be managed by the following stylists:
Lindsay Freamo - Luce Queens 613-507-7070
Erika Casselman - Luce Down Town 613-544-3330
Erica Deslippe - Luce Down Town 613-544-3330
For folks who prefer to stay in the west end of Kingston, my two points of contact can be found on facebook or google. My experience with these wonderful ladies is not as involved as the stylists mentioned above, but I can tell you they are phenomenally talented, true professionals, both work from home, and again, are located in the west end of Kingston.
Their names and salons are:
Celia Piper - Flair Home Hair Studio ( flairhairstudio.ca )
Sarah Hall - Sarah Hall Hair private studio on facebook.
Please let me know if you have any particular concerns or questions about how your needs will be addressed during my maternity leave. I will let you know if any changes occur that may impact you.
Thank you for your confidence in my work. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement. And most importantly thank you for being the reason I love to get up and go to work every day. I look forward to working with you after I return to the salon!
