Patricia Campbell – Owner/Operator
Patricia Campbell’s career as a hairstylist began over 35 years ago in Boston, followed by a 2-year apprenticeship at the finest salon on the fashionable Newbury Street.
Mentored by trained Vidal Sassoon instructors including Paul Mitchell, Yosh Toya, and Horst Rechelbacher (founder of Aveda). Patricia’s extensive training enabled her to learn the latest techniques in hair and service by attending classes with some of the top stylists in the world.
With an interest in natural ingredients, Patricia also attended many Aveda conferences and training workshops in the US and Canada, profoundly influencing her work and life. With this training and experience, Patricia began working as part of a team of hair and makeup artists on photo shoots, fashion shows and commercial work which was featured in several publications.
As a single mother of Mi’kmaq and of Scottish descent with roots in Nova Scotia, it was only a natural step that Patricia returned to her roots in Nova Scotia. She worked at Jennifer’s and Company Salon and Day Spa (an Aveda Concept Salon) in Truro for many years while continuing to develop and hone her talents. Patricia completed the Aveda colour technician certificate, as well as trained with up-do specialist Martin Parsons.
Patricia and her friend and colleague, Jennifer of Jennifer’s and Company were thrilled to win 2nd place in the international L’Oreal Colour Trophy Competition in Montreal
In 2002 Patricia founded her own salon in Truro. In 2016, after moving to Malagash, Patricia opened Fiddleheads Salon for Hair in the colorful downtown of Tatamagouche on the beautiful North Shore of Nova Scotia.
Being a Certified Yoga/Meditation instructor has help me to evolve, to be more Grateful, and also plays a very important role with regard to a more holistic approach to the business of Hairstyling.
A Balance of Beauty that is in harmony with Body, mind, spirit and the planet.
