twice. Clients usually have a variety of curls on their head, and no two clients are alike,” she says. “Shaping and custom designing looser curl to fit in harmony with tighter curl, or even straight parts is a brilliant puzzle. I love teaching clients how to work effortlessly with their hair — it’s just wonderful and exciting.” Her ‘curly only’ concept has created a community, both locally and online, where curly-haired clients trade stories, tips and tricks based on what they’ve learned through their appointments. Not only does Tania Jane spend time educating other stylists and stylist educators on cutting and advanced product application techniques for curly hair, but she also spends time with each client she sees, demonstrating how to achieve their desired curly look with as little effort as possible.
“It’s not only important what I can do in the salon for them, it matters what they can do at home for themselves. I like to keep things easy,” she says. Along with proper shaping, a huge part of her philosophy is introducing her clients to the right tools. The TANIAjane Naturally Curly product line consists of only three products: cleanser, conditioner and the three-in-one styling product initially designed specifically for curly hair in a Canadian climate that is gaining popularity internationally. Manufactured here in Winnipeg, the product line is now available for other stylists and salons to carry, both under the TANIAjane label or a private label. But what makes her products so successful is how simply and effectively they transform ‘frizzy and tangled’ to shiny, bouncy and beautiful. “For most, it’s a first time introduction to their real hair and I have so much fun watching them fall in love with it” Tania Jane says. “Curly hair is like a unique accessory we grow and we should enjoy showing it off.” Salon TANIAjane 55 Meadowbank Rd.
