“My customers have given me the best education I could get. They are the ones responsible for my development.”- Mary Tripi
Mary Tripi has, indeed, developed – to become acclaimed as one of Canada’s foremost innovators of hair design trends.
Proprietor of The Private World of Mary Tripi, she began her study of hair design in Greece at the age of fourteen. From there, Mary brought her philosophy of European hair design to the Canadian fashion scene three years later, where she quickly established herself as an imaginative exponent of Canadian hair styling.
Her innate expertise was recognized early by her industry peers when she was nominated a member of the style directors committee, representing Canada at the prestigious Intercoiffure in Paris.
In addition, she was named the Styles Director of The Guild of Hair Design for two years. Plus her philosophies of hair design have been widely published throughout the United States, European fashion magazines, and television.
MARY TRIPI’S PHILOSOPHY
Fashions and lifestyles are constantly shifting, and Mary believes your hair expression should reflect these changes and move in parallel with them.
“I believe there is beauty and style to be found in every woman. The stylist’s final decision should be a mirror-image of your individual personality and lifestyle. Therefore, I create a “look” designed specifically to bring that out in each of my customers.”
Mary doesn’t just cut your hair, she shapes and designs it to bring out the “you” in you. And that is not merely the Mary Tripi philosophy, it is the Mary Tripi difference.
