Amanda Fernandez has been a hairstylist for 9 years and absolutely loves what she does. Prior to becoming a hairstylist, she obtained an Advanced Diploma at Seneca College for Business Administration Management, which enabled her to gain a lot of knowledge and insight on the Business and Marketing aspect. However, she felt she needed more, so decided to pursue her passion and embarked on a new journey in the hair industry. With the support from her family, Amanda went back to school for hairdressing. After obtaining her Certificate in Hairdressing she worked at a Salon in Yorkville for a couple of years.
She was determined to find a salon that believed in her goals and would help refine her skills and keep up with the latest trends through further training. She was fortunate to find The Manor Salon and was thrilled to meet Amber and Sonia. Amanda had finally found the perfect salon environment where everyone believes in teamwork and supports your goals. The most rewarding part of her job is meeting people and getting to use her skills to make them look and feel special.
Over the years, Amanda has attended several Oribe editorial styling and cutting courses, Mazella and Palmer precision cutting courses, barbering courses and is certified in the Keratherapy Smoothing Treatment. She always ensures that a thorough consultation is done before she commences any hair service. This way she can customize the perfect look for you that works well with your lifestyle! When Amanda is not in the salon you can find her spending quality time with her little Pomeranian puppy, finding a great new show series to watch, shopping, reading inspirational quotes, going for dinners and enjoying a nice glass of red to relax. She looks forward to meeting you and making your hair goals come true!
