Mariah (Assistant/Receptionist)

Assistant/Receptionist - I became a Tangles Team Member July 2020.

I was inspired to work at a salon in order to work towards my goal of becoming a Nail Technician.

About me:
I am a graduate from York University’s Communication Studies program. My professional career consists of customer service, administration, and reception work. You can find me throughout the salon preparing for clients, or at reception booking appointments!  Now that I have completed my degree, I plan on pursuing my true passion, nails! I plan on jumping into a career as a nail technician by starting school in the fall!

Favourite Tool:
In the salon: our booking system called Meevo 2.
For nails: my gel lamp.

Favourite Technique:
Building and sculpting a nail with acrylic/gel

Most influential person:
Suzie from “Nail Career Education”. Not only is she Canadian, she has everything from beginners or pros to learn. You can find her on YouTube and Instagram.

Favourite product:
Glossy top coat. Not only does it mean you’re done and can seal in the design, it makes it pop and people can really see how gorgeous their nails are! Also... anything neon or glitter... who doesn’t like glitter?

Greatest Achievements:
Putting myself through 4 years of University despite encountering 2 strikes, earning my degree with honours from the comfort of my home all while almost 20 weeks pregnant!
