Khadija Jaii
Apprentice/Assistant

Started at Shampoo in 2017

Khadija has been a stylist-in-the-making ever since they could (safely) hold a pair of scissors. Their natural talent shines, and their kind and thoughtful attitude makes each appointment feel special.

Education:

Khadija is Shampoos very first official apprentice. Since starting with us in 2017, they have attended classes and shadowed mentors to develop a technical skill set that we think could best any hair school graduate. A stand out favourite for Khadija was Bumble and Bumbles 'Styling Your Career' workshop. This class got attendees thinking about their career goals, and how to promote longevity and avoid burnout. The tools and reflective prompts Khadija took away from this class are applicable to more than just their work life. We love the approach Bumble takes to education!

Passions and Favourites

As an artist, Khadija has always been passionate about nature, texture, and connection. So doing hair is a natural fit! The variety of hair styles and textures are endless, and the way trends are constantly evolving sparks inspiration for Khadija. They love being able to connect with their clients, building a trusting relationship that grows over time. Specialties behind the chair include cuts that bring out curls and accentuate natural waves. If you don't think you have any waves or curls in your hair - Khadija will find them!
