Meet the Creator
Hey there! Thank you so much for visiting my website, and I hope you're able to find what you're looking for at my studio. My name is Cassandra Rose, I am a queer non-binary hairstylist - the owner, operator and single team member of Black Rose Beauty Lounge. I officially opened the doors of my own business September 4th 2019, but have amassed over 10 years of experience working in the beauty industry, 9 of those being in Alliston. I am so proud of the little space I have created, and I hope you love it as much as I do.
I grew up in Caledon East, with my mother and 3 younger brothers on a beautiful property where I have many fond memories. Hair artistry has been my primary interest for as long as I can remember, but as soon as I got myself into a salon through the co-op program in my final year of high school, I knew this was my passion and a career I was going to flourish in.
I attended post-secondary at a small private beauty school in North York, where I was fortunate enough to gain experience with all different hair types, including textured hair. After 10 months, I graduated with honours and a fire under me. I landed a job in Alliston as a junior stylist in 2012 and have since spent countless hours each year dedicated to a wide variety of colour, styling and cutting classes. I believe that the final step towards offering top notch service to my guests was officially opening the doors of my own studio. I love learning more about my craft and will forever be committed to continuing modern education to refine and update my skills throughout my career behind the chair.
When I am not at the salon you will find me mostly at home, reading, practicing yoga, playing video games or binging the latest Netflix feature while I cuddle up with my two cats Callie and Ceasar. I enjoy escaping to remote cottage-type locations or tropical destinations to enjoy the beauty & peace nature has to offer.
I think the most rewarding part of my job is the idea that I am able to help folks' outer self reflect the way they feel on the inside. Seeing the confidence and happiness I can help spark in people brings me so much joy and satisfaction. I love hearing the classic line: "I can't believe that's my hair!" when your hair transformation is completed. The connection I form with my guests behind the chair is so special, and I am so blessed to have formed long lasting friendships with so many wonderful people. Maintaining the health of your hair and offering professional advice & education for at-home care while making your hair dreams come true is an integral part of my services.
I cherish all hair services, but there is a special place in my heart for creative colour. Something about painting unique hues in hair and being able to be creative is extremely fulfilling!
