valla head shot 2015  valla business card


Valla Reid is known to many as  an awesome hairstylist but did you know she is just  as wonderful as a Reiki Master?  The “urban dictionary” describes a “HAIRAPIST” as one who cuts hair for a living, and after many years of hearing it all and providing advise, receives an honourary PHD in therapy.  So, after 26 years in hairapy and during a major life change, Valla started going to “Healing Circle Meditation Class” in Marmora.  She always knew that true beauty comes within, but a great hair -do had to help too so why not combine both? She has also completed the Healing Circle Meditation Facilitators Course and Bars Course and continues to expand her spiritual growth. Valla often uses  crystals in her sessions as well, how awesome is that?

Katharine Grace:

After 35 years within the confines of the commercial art field Katharine yearned to produce art that was an expression her instinctive creativity…  a joyful bound into the realm of purposelessness… art with no other purpose than to be pleasing to the eye, the heart and the soul.  The result is a line of jewellery that celebrates the depth of feminine beauty. It is simple and elegant in its joyful purposelessness: an expression of emotion, playfulness, courage, joy, strength and spirituality to be worn for no other reason than to be enjoyed. Each piece is created in the mindful space of the heart that each woman possesses and is blessed and cleansed with the power of light and love.
