Locally born & raised on Protection Island, she had a unique childhood. Ocea was homeschooled up until grade 10, then decided to try out a high school experience. After graduating Ocea entered the Hairstylist trades program to get this whole career thing started. She’s a go – getter! Ocea graduated VIU during the COVID shutdown, and after a couple of years working in the field, has now obtained her Red Seal certification. Yay Ocea!
She joined our team as an apprentice in 2020, completed our training program and has grown with us into the super talented stylist she is today. We felt right away that Ocea was a rare treasure. With a passion for the artistry of hair but the most important part – her clients. Her Super Power is connecting with others. You will feel that sitting in her chair.
Ocea knew Violet Hair Lounge was the place for her when she experienced the alignment between our guiding values and her personal beliefs in equality, expression & commitment to making eco-friendly choices for our planet. Her first and true hair love is haircutting, even though she has had every colour of the rainbow in her own hair, she absolutely loves to do some colour magic. Ocea is a joy to have on our team, and we love seeing her dedication and expertise hone as she refines and defines her talents and career goals at VHL.
Ocea holds her family and loved ones very close to her heart. She grew up creating, and incorporates that creativity into her life in and outside our work. She is always trying out new hobbies & art forms for fun. Ocea has a passion for hair education and a perspective on life well beyond her years. Her chair is an inclusive haven for all, where everyone is welcome and safe. This where she wants to help bring your inner expression outward!
