About Tatjana Reis
This Is How My Story Began
My love for doing hair began in my very early years. Being trained in Europe, I enrolled in hairstyling school at only fifteen years old. It takes three years to become a hairstylist in Slovenia, and in those three years I learned that my love for doing hair developed into a passion.
Shortly after I finished school I opened my first hair salon. I owned that salon for four years, but destiny had something else in plan for me. My roads took me to Canada where I found my second home in Kitchener, Ontario.
I discovered hairstyling here was a bit different than back home and that I had the advantage of being trained in Europe.
Soon after coming here I started working in a local mall to gain some experience in Canadian hairstyling and learn how things work here.
After a year of working in the mall I located to a bigger salon and stayed there for seven years. But life had different plans for me, and I moved to another salon, staying there for almost ten years.
In the meantime I also pursued my photography career as a fine art portrait photographer. I discovered that when doing hair on women and finding out they don’t have somewhere special to go after visiting the salon, it can seem like a missed opportunity to share their beauty with the world.
That was one of the reasons why I created my " Celebrate You"
package. I love seeing my clients shine, and that's just one of the ways I could make them feel special about themselves and make them exist in photos.
With that being said, the idea of owning a salon again came to mind and soon turned into a reality. I was able to combine my two passions into something very meaningful.
In my opinion, portraits are very significant pieces of our lives. They represent who we are, they can tell a story and most importantly, an image is a timeless piece of history.
So don't forget the importance of a portrait, and guarantee that you will have something to pass down to your next generation.
