AUGUST’s director, Aliza Esmail, began her career early when she moved to London, England in 2007 to train at the storied Vidal Sasson salon. She went on to become an educator for the brand at their Bond Street academy, instructing new staff and hairstylists from around the globe. Hopping back across the pond, she went on to teach at the Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, California before returning to work as a stylist in Toronto – both her hometown and Sassoon’s only Canadian location.
Since 2013, Aliza has been teaching with Allilon Education – a top-tier hair education company delivering world-class courses, inspirational seminars and shows around the world. This position has taken her to cities across North America, Asia and Europe while at the same time providing her with invaluable teaching experiences. – including a worldwide hair tour in Parma, Italy teaching in front of 3,000+ people!
AUGUST at Stackt is Aliza’s newest venture, sharing her years of classical training and international teaching experience with her fellow Torontonians – this time in her own welcoming, fresh setting.
