Whitney Dheilly

With 16 years behind the chair and 8 years of being a Redken educator, this Mom of 3 pursued her dream and opened up HQ Style Lounge. She has been in love with this career since day one. She is continuously expanding her knowledge, collaborating within the industry and is thrilled to be able to share that commonality with her growing team. 

Her new passion is giving her clients the length and thickness they’ve always dreamed of with NBR Hand Tied Extensions. This method was taught to her from some of the best in LA and she has continued to master the art with education from Canadian company Philocaly Hair. This technique has already transformed many of her clients' hair and she invites you to experience it as well. 

She loves creating beautiful dimensional colors of all sorts. She’s not afraid to get creative and innovative when it comes to creating the perfect tone or switching it up with something new. 

With many years in the industry comes countless wedding mornings that Whitney’s been a part of. She is our bridal BOSS and her signature creative touch can be seen on all her brides and bridesmaids. 

Outside of the salon, she is busy with her husband Pat and their 3 young boys running around their Sage Creek home and making life a dance party.

Alana’s passion for genuine connection led her to the industry in 2015. She found her place in it helping people own their natural texture. With natural curls herself, Alana knows both how frustrating and rewarding it can be (triangle cut anyone?!).

She embraces the transformational effect that life has on people. She believes that our style embodies who and where we are in time. Wedding mornings with your bridesmaids, a bright blonde makeover or just a fresh look, Alana will bring the enthusiasm. She seeks to be a source for insight on products, tools and methods to help you master your natural hair. While in her chair you’ll hear about her family, friends, favourite new recipes or food spots and travel.

Her books are currenlty closed for new clients.

She specializes in blonding, enjoys bridal styling, and loves naturally curly hair. She has expanded her education by attending multiple Redken classes. Some celebrities she pulls inspiration from include Sarah Jessica Parker, Shay Mitchell, and Jennifer Lopez. When she’s not busy making you laugh behind the chair, you’ll also find Jess helping keep things organized, ordered and in check as HQ’s operational manager. She enjoys cookin’ up new recipes in the kitchen and burning off some energy at the gym.

Danielle Byskal

Danielle has been in the hair industry since 2014 and joined HQ in 2020. With having a passion for vivids came a love for blonde work. Her eye for detail in the world of barbering and men's cutting made it one of her main specialites. She is currently expanding her clientele and enjoys getting to know each and every client as much as possible to better understand their specific wants and needs.

She always puts education as a priority. This made her want to expand her portfolio of techniques for services other than just the hair on our heads. She holds her certification for body sugaring, brow shaping and tinting. Allowing the guests of HQ to have a one stop shop. 

In her free time and in a pre-covid time, you could find her at a music festival or hanging out with friends. For now, she’ll enjoy her love for working out and cooking. Need a restaurant to try? Danielle has your back.
