One of the perks of working on Main Street is befriending the sweet and stylish folk who work and live in Mt. Pleasant. My friendship with Chris Weber started in an unexpected place: Stanley Park. After a chance meeting by the Vancouver Aquarium, I ran into this handsome man one night headed home from work. We got to talking, and a friendship was sparked. Little did I know that that he was a resident stylist at Barbarella, and a super talented one at that!
I recently popped down to the salon and spent the afternoon giggling as Chris worked his magic. He played with my hair after a quick cut, and I'm now inspired to try to "style" my hair more often. I didn't realize there were so many options for my haircut, but luckily Chris showed me a few tricks. Who knew I could look so badass!
Chris has been at Barbarella since 2012, when he moved to Vancouver from Germany. Working in the hair industry since 2008, he says that the best part of being a hairstylist is "working
with so many interesting people and making them happy. I love being
creative and giving people a small change which is sometimes a big change
for them." Focusing on colour, cut and styling, Chris is currently enamored with "all pastel colours, colour fades and...different shapes of bangs", going for the "WOW" effect. Although he likes his hair, he sometimes wishes he "could switch with Cole Mohr." If you're looking for a new stylist, Chris comes with my highest recommendation. I don't think I've ever laughed during a hair cut as much as I did that Friday afternoon. Be sure to check out his newly minted style blog, Vancouver Style as well!
