Salon Manager

Amanda Evans

My Passion began with the Cutting Edge in 2009, and it has been to ensure that your experience is a memorable one. I personally love being able to meet each guest that I talk to, and learn about them.

My all-time favourite part of your visit would be seeing you walk out the door with a smile on your face and confidence in stride. It truly is amazing how a haircut or colour can make you feel.

In 2020 my journey continues as a partnering Space Specialist for Davines. This new role will allow me to bring all current information regarding Davines products and trends back to the Cutting Edge team. I am a firm believer in staying up to date and this will allow our team to keep each guest in the know.


Senior Stylist

Christine Fredricks

For 16 years my absolute passion has been obtaining and maintaining the integrity of my guest’s hair with proper products and tools. Being a part of a salon that is so forward in education, has allowed me the opportunity to travel to Italy, Chicago and New York.

Travelling for education has had an unbelievable impact on who I am as a person and has influenced me as a stylist. It is very important to me to keep up to date and ahead of trends so that my guests have the best experience. From start to finish, I will ensure that I will listen, guide and succeed in bringing your vision to life.

Intermediate Stylist

Jordan Tassie

Ever since I was a little girl, old enough to dress myself and brush my hair, I knew that I wanted to be a hairstylist. I have always loved the art that has been behind fashion trends and for the 7 years that I have been in the industry, it has been inspiring and life changing.

I always love learning new skills and applying them to my guests, which is why I am excited to announce that I am now a Partnering Space Specialist for Davines. This means that I get to share with my guests the very latest in the World of Davines.

It makes me feel good to be a part of making someone look and feel their best while hearing their life story. I love the journey of starting with my blank canvas and creating a piece of art that brings a smile to their face.
