Featuring Kara Firman, GUIDE Hair Salon and The Guild Studios
Kara Firman is a self-proclaimed hair nerd and can’t help but immerse herself in as many avenues of the hair and beauty industry that she can get her hands and heart into.
She has been a stylist since 2003, but her love of hair started while she was growing up in her Mom’s salon. Her career has taken her across Canada competing and judging hair competitions, educating with L’Oreal Professionnel, leading hair teams at Saskatchewan Fashion Week, building a successful career behind the chair to now stepping away from doing hair in the salon into the role of a leader and entrepreneur.
Kara opened GUIDE Hair Salon in 2017 where she has built a successful business with a strong team of stylists. Her newest business The Guild Studios, is a co-working space for the Beauty, Fashion and Wellness industries. It caters to independent service providers with private suites, a boutique, pop-up spaces, education, events, and networking.
In addition to working behind the scenes in her businesses, Kara finds herself advocating to narrow the gaps within the hair industry to make sure stylists are treated fairly and are working in spaces that ensure that their careers are sustainable for the future.
