In depth

Today I thought I’d share a little more in depth background about myself and how WISH came about which is something I dont usually do thru social media lol😉but here we go….today isn’t just any day….today is the day my life forever changed. 9 years ago I suddenly lost my best friend of 18 years at the age of 24. You know when you try to tell a story and then say “oh you had to be there” we lived these moments ‘memories’ together …..not sure if that was always a good thing lol but we had a blast! Anyone that was honored to have met Kim would agree she was everything you hoped to be…her smile and personality would fill the room with warmth and happiness. She was a huge supporter in my career she knew how much I loved beauty and my passion for people and hair. Whether  I asked her to come to my makeup school for some crazy makeup or learning a new cut…she was always willing… Poor girl😊 We had many chats about our goals and dreams and for me that was a salon. You always hear life is short but when I actually saw how short it could be I realized you need to make those dreams a reality. That’s the day my life changed… instead of saying “one day” I said “this year” which actually turned into 2 months later. If you know anything about me  I’m the planner the over thinker the one that needs to know the end of the movie before the beginning …. I was working 3 jobs and only 3 days as a stylist a week when I bought the salon. Some how I was going to need to fill up five or more days a week with client’s and some how I did. I feel so honored and appreciate that I get to meet amazing new people , share stories and oh of course do there hair! Also I work with the most lovely women  that I call family. I look back and know I would never have jumped two feet in. Its because I saw Kim follow her passions in life, she was stong, free spirited, and as any great friend…. she  encouraged me! There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of my best friend…..some days with a smile and other days with tears. She has taught me so much and reminds me to live a little more, to love a little harder and to laugh always!



It started with a Wish

A girl with a big Wish …to open a salon where we as stylists can work side by side supporting, encouraging and learning from each other! Wish opened its doors in South Surrey June 2007 by Lisa Menzies
The vision with Wish, is to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere that will be a calming backdrop to the evolving, creative energy only truly dedicated stylists can possess…we are passionate and dedicated to ensure every visit to the salon leaves guests with a sense of fulfillment. ..on the inside and out!
