This is Ocea, our energetic Junior Stylist.
Locally born & raised on Protection Island, Ocea was home schooled until grade 10. This spitfire attended her final high school years at NDSS & hit the ground running, completing her studies a year early and entering the Hairstylist trades program at VIU immediately afterward. Ocea graduated VIU during the COVID shutdown, elected valedictorian of her cohort & delivering her commencement speech over Zoom, the same way they had finished their classes.
Ocea worked with us during her training at VIU, and joined the Lounge Babes fully in June of 2020, literally days after her graduation. No sitting still for this woman! We felt right away that Ocea was a rare treasure we didn’t want to let get away. 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.
Ocea’s first and true hair love is cuts, and she found a passion for creative expression through haircolour in school. She’s now our resident hair adventuress, sporting new vivid colours herself regularly. Ocea is a joy to have on our team, and we love seeing her dedication and expertise grow as she refines her talent and defines her career goals at VHL.
Ocea holds her family and loved ones very close to her heart. Ocea grew up creating and incorporates that creativity in her work and day to day life, trying out new hobbies & art forms. She has a casual green thumb, a passion for hair education and a perspective on life well beyond her years.
