Arran’s passion for art and fashion lead her to a career in hair styling as a release for her creative spirit. Starting her career early as an apprentice in a well-established Italian salon gave her the basics but it did not satisfy her rebel soul. She found that working on-set for film and TV in Montreal for musicians like Amanda Rheaume and the B 52’s kept her passion alive. Her quest continued as she found inspiration from around the world hair shows. Travelling from Miami, New York and Las Vegas, she was introduced to Luxury Brand Partners, stable of high end products.
Now, ten years after opening her own salon, Studio B Urban Hair, Arran has found her place. It’s an urban, edgy, unpretentious oasis with an all-female staff. Unapologetically laid-back but committed to the highest standards of client service, current product and techniques.
Proud to work with the R+Co family.
