Welcome to My Salon
Thanks for checking out my website! My name is Kelsey Schellenberg founder and stylist of 6ixHairExtensions. It has always been a dream of mine to start my own salon and I’m so excited to finally be doing it!Origin Story
I’m originally from Winnipeg and moved to Ontario 4 years ago when I decided to pursue my dream of hairstyling. Growing up, I wasn’t actually sure what I wanted to be. I knew my career had to allow me to be creative, get to know people, and give me a chance to help them in any way I could. Knowing I've helped someone feel confident and positive about themselves makes me feel I have found my passion.
When I was a teenager I started cutting and dying my own hair. I loved using my hair to express myself and had fun experimenting with different colours and cuts. Eventually, I damaged my hair pretty bad with all the chemicals I used. I decided to get extensions as a way to have beautiful hair and discourage me from damaging it any further. I was not expecting to fall in love! The way my hair looked when I had extensions remains one of my favorite hairstyles and was one of the influences on my decision to pursue hairstyling.
After high school, I moved to Mississauga where I studied and worked at an Aveda studio in Toronto. It was demanding work but there’s a reason so many stylists want to study there. The skills I learned on how to cut, colour, and style hair were invaluable (not sponsored! I promise). After I graduated in 2016 I moved to a salon in Mississauga. I made a few good friends there but I still wanted a place where I could be my own boss and had the freedom to spend as much time with my clients as I believed they needed.
The idea of starting my own business was absolutely terrifying. I didn’t have any training in the business side of the hair industry and it never seemed to be the right time. I could fill a book with all the excuses I told myself but I realized that was just my anxiety talking. The best thing I could do was invest in myself. I quit my job and started 6ixHairExtensions
Why Hair Extensions?
Hair extensions will always have a special place in my heart after they saved my hair. I also just love how people look after they get extensions. Every client I’ve had is always amazed at how something that doesn’t require chemicals can make their hair look so different. It’s also a great way to test if a colour would suit you or not without having to actually dye your hair.
