Meet the Team!
From left to right: Emily, Kiara, Melissa, Anna, Darlene & Emily
We are a diverse team of beauty professionals that all together have 60+ years in the industry. Specializing in colour corrections to perms, clinical skincare to lash lifting. We love making our clients feel special and we’re committed to perfecting our craft.
I’m Darlene Jebailey, Salon and Spa Owner/Operator, and long time hairstylist. I started my career in 1993 and it was then that I discovered my love for hair cutting! I worked at the Head Shoppe in The Halifax Shopping Centre for over 20 years where I worked with many talented stylists gaining experience and learning something new everyday. My passion to make people feel comfortable, beatiful and listened to.
In September of 2013, an opportunity was presented to me and I took the leap; Blush Hair Studio was born. Since then I have enjoyed building a team of stylists and estheticians to work beside me and make our shop feel more like a home.
I look forward to welcoming you into Blush Hair Studio for all your beauty needs.
Hi! I’m Anna Laprade. I’ve been a passionate stylist for 11 years and a longtime lash extensions specialist for 6. I’ve been with Blush Hair Studio since we opened in 2013.
I get a lot of joy from taking classes and teaching them! I lean more towards more natural styles that you can look effortlessly beautiful in.
Behind the chair you’ll hear me talking about my family which includes my daughter and husband- also love telling stories about my parents, dogs and friends.
It’s been a pleasure to serve Herring Cove for the last 8 years and if I haven’t met you yet, I look forward to seeing you in my chair (or on your wedding day #weddinghairspecialist).
Hey there! I’m Melissa and I have been with Blush since 2019; I have been in the hair industry since 2003.
In school I never thought I would be so passionate about everything this industry has offered me- Boy, was I wrong! I have also worked as an educator for almost 5 years – I think we have a responsibility to pass on what we’ve learned. I am Internationally Redken Certified and love all of the science in hair! (you can call me a Super Nerd!)
In the salon I am always laughing and truly enjoying myself with my clients.
Outside of Blush, I am with my nephews, on the ball field or taking classes.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
Hi there, my name is Kiara Ardelli and I have been a makeup artist for 15 years and an esthetician for 12.
Education is my passion and I currently teach full-time at CBBC regency School. You can find me at Blush on the weekends and during the evenings continuing to do services on some of the best clientele ever.
I absolutely love skincare and my knowledge lies within fixing major concerns that a lot of people have. From teenagers to mature skin types, I have the answer. I also specialize in pedicures. I’ve been at Blush now since 2020.
I look forward to sharing what I know about skin care, and if I don’t know the answer right away, I will find it. Can’t wait to see you in my Spare Room.
Hey! I’m Emily Borgal-Weeks, I have been an esthetician at Blush since February 2021. I am still pretty new to the beauty industry, that being said I am very passionate about the work I do and love making people feel their very best!
Some of my favourite services to do are pedicures, facials, Gel nails and creating nail art! And speaking of art, it has always been a passion of mine and now being able to put it on peoples nails is honestly a dream come true!
I love sharing stories about my two crazy little dogs, my family and friends!
I grew up in Herring Cove/Spryfield, so I love seeing familiar faces and I love meeting new ones! I look forward to seeing you soon!
