I had the pleasure of having Shimona Henry cut, colour and style my hair. Her expert precision, attention to detail and wonderful conversation made me completely at ease.
Shimona is all about creating haircuts and styles that make a statement. She’s been working as a makeup artist and hair stylist (film sets, photoshoots & bridal) for over a decade. She also runs her very own company called Pin-Up Perfection Photography est. 2006.
Shimona and I share a passion for vintage and it was amazing to connect with someone who knew what I was talking about!
Graduating at the top of her class, she was the student of the year at John Casablancas in 2016. Her love for colourful hairstyles and building strong connections with her customers is a driving passion with versatility and uniqueness being the name of the game! Need a fab new do? Her hours are 10am to 8pm Sunday to Wednesday. She also shares her wisdom and knowledge at East Vanity Parlour in group demos as well as one-on-one sessions!
Connect with Shimona:
I was so lucky to be given the most incredible hair cut and colour i’ve EVER HAD. Shimona made excellent suggestions and asked how I wear my hair and my maintenance routine. This is the first time I felt guided and had kind, professional advice.
The cut was done a few weeks before the colour! Shimona bleached my hair and used Joico products for the colour. She finished it off with some product and cute hair straightener curls!

Today I recorded a brand new episode of my podcast covering my sensory differences and perception (or misconceptions) towards my Autism.
I also posted a new review for Purelygreat deodorant:
I decided to get my nose re-pierced and saw Captain Matt at Rebellion Tattoo in Langley BC!

I have started a BRAND NEW Podcast called “Autistic Speaking”! Please listen here:
And my NEWEST Youtube Series “Margaux Talks Tea”
I would LOVE if you could let me know what you think of these two new ventures!
Two new Reviews – Hope you enjoy.
Yes, I will admit it: I am Weird.
I believe I have embraced this as my identity in a very subconscious way. I have no fear when it comes to expressing myself and I don’t think I ever did.
Anxiety is also a big part of who I am. It sometimes forces me to freeze and feel very weak-minded. It takes over me. I sweat profusely, I get heart palpitations, I just want to run and cower. It even can prompt me to sleep a whole lot.
Art is something that can help calm me right down, it is my soul doing the talking. It is an everlasting moment of freedom. I can look at my Art and think “I made that?”. It can be incredibly hard to believe.
I have hopes and dreams with it. Literal “close-my-eyes-and-fall-asleep” dreams. I see myself in the heart of a big city with my art in a gallery. I know it can be considered low brow and heck, I know there’s people who don’t like it and who could truly care less about me. I still have this dream.
“It’s too small. It should be bigger!”
“I can’t be your friend because I can’t stand your Art.”
“Your art is ugly.”
Tell me this. Tell me this over and over and over and over again. Please.
Why? Get your negative thoughts out, it’s good for you.
But for me?
I’ll keep creating.
…then you wouldn’t support Autism Speaks. April is the CRUELEST MONTH. Get prepared to go #RedInstead
