Cindy “When I became aware of Inspire, just its name alone caught my attention. Right away, I knew it reflected my core values that I was searching for in a workplace, community and environmental mindfulness and a place that fostered personal growth. You see, I was a stylist for over a decade at that time and I had been searching for a nourishing home for my clientele and myself. The journey of being at Inspire transformed me, I was given unconditional support as a stylist, but more importantly, to be my better self. Even though I don’t work there anymore, the changes and friendships that I’ve made have created ripples into my daily life. My time spent at Inspire gave me the strength to launch forward with my dreams, and now I am ready to take another leap of faith. I am grateful for everything I learnt at Inspire and I will carry it with me forever.”

Heather “I have been at Inspire for three and a half years and I don’t know how I got so lucky. Working at Inspire has not only helped me build a clientele but has also shown me what it means to truly love your job – a concept I didn’t know was possible. Inspire’s dedication to environmental sustainability makes me proud of the work I am doing, knowing that we are doing our part for the environment and for the health and wellbeing of our guests. I am proud to be part of a team that values a welcoming approach, free of pretentious egos and competition – another thing I didn’t know possible in this industry. Teamwork – in its truest form – sharing the hardships and sharing the celebrations is truly something I can say I have experienced working at Inspire. Kathryn, the owner, is truly the heart and soul behind the operation. She has exceptional vision, sensitivity and drive to create the best possible environment for each individual guest. She is constantly aware and willing to help out in any way possible. ANY way possible. When you have an idea or suggestion for the salon or a way to make something better she is always willing to hear your ideas and, in most cases, implement them. She has the ability to lead by example, motivate and support us though anything – in and out of the salon. I can truly say that working at Inspire has been some of the best years of my life and am forever grateful for the lessons I have learned and will continue to learn from my teammates, my clients and my boss.”

Abbie “Last Spring I was fortunate enough to be hired at Inspire as part of their Guest Services Team.
I received the warmest welcome I have ever had at a new job (which included a colourful little handmade welcome note and a chocolate heart from the owner!)
Over the past year I have experienced nothing but encouragement and support to learn and grow and be the best I can be. I can honestly say I have never worked for a more kind or inspiring boss. Kathryn is so passionate about client care, and is always there to guide and mentor and provide me with everything I need to succeed. She has truly raised the bar in what I thought was possible in customer services!”

Margaret “Never have I ever enjoyed going to work as much as I do now. Kathryn has created a unique work environment that creates encourages, and thrives in positivity. The salon atmosphere is upbeat, yet laid back. The perfect balance for me as a hairstylist to keep my creativity flowing.
Trendy neighbourhood of downtown, sweet coworkers, and an employer who truly values your work.”
