Everyone has past. La Vita’s began as a little girls dream in her Grandfathers salon in the late 1960’s early 70’s. It was a small but busy hair salon on Queen St. in Kitchener. I would visit and marvel at the sights and smells of beauty. Permanent waves, finger waves, cutting and styling and yes weekly visits were all the rage to keep all those tresses coiled and coiffed. It was love at first sight! My Grandfather was my inspiration to “Love what you Love to do” and the rest will follow. Well, follow they did, his career ran for many years and he was once was the oldest practicing Hairstylist in K-W after many years living in the Canada. He was a young man on a mission and travelled from England to begin his career.
His passion and persistence has left a mark on me and a will to succeed in his footsteps.
My story had begun much as my Grandfather, a passion to provide great hair designs, a desire to be amazing at whatever I choose to be. I believe I am well on that road to my dreams.
My Name is Dianne Elizabeth Amiee, and my story began in 1983 at the local K-W School of Hairstyling. I have done everything from haircutting, cap hi-lights, foils, permanent waves, colors, weaves, ear piercing, weddings, funerals and baby’s first cut. I look back at all the people that I have had the honor and pleasure of doing their hair and cannot think of anything else I would rather be doing. I have been blessed to be able to “Do what I Love to Do” each and every day.
I have been in the beauty business for over 30 years, during that time fads, trends and sometimes just crazy things have come and gone, but one thing has remained: My passion for hair and my love and respect of people. I have used my time in the industry to be further educated and to educate. Knowledge is powerful and can be used to be excited about what you have gained through it. Take some time for yourself and marvel at all of your accomplishments, we all much to be thankful for.
Along with myself and my talented team of hairstylists and barbers, we here at La Vita make your dreams come true. We are helping to change the world, one person at a time.
