ANNE MARIE ROONEY / OWNER @LVL7SALON
I’m originally from Quebec (yes I speak French!) I have two incredible kids, & my husband is a very busy first responder in the city! I have a background in Visual Arts & am currently in my 14th year in this incredible industry, & after moving 7 times in 7 years for my husbands employment, I feel fortunate to now call Calgary home. Relocating numerous times has taught me the importance of networking and supporting local entrepreneurs and artisans, & I can honestly say that I have never lived in a city where the entrepreneurial spirit is so prevalent.
I believe the experience + connection made with people, rather than ‘just a service’, combined with insightful detailed work is what has kept my chair full and the referrals consistent for the last 5 years here in the city.
I specialize in natural sunkissed blondes, dimensional brunettes, colour melts, beach waves, bridal & session work, sculptural cuts, clean lines & precise bobs. I pride myself on simply listening to clients & offering an honest approach while the hair integrity is always my priority.
Throughout my years in the industry, I’ve had so many incredible opportunities I’m thankful for. From educating for companies like L’oreal & Keune, to working on an Xbox game for Eidos, styling Miriam Alden from Brunette the Label, servicing high profile clients like Hilary Clinton & Stephen Harper, working on add campaigns & session work for magazines, runway shows with Marie St. Pierre,photo shoots with agencies, and working on set with celebs like Tegan & Sara - I am infinitely grateful for every opportunity, bride, and client in my chair.
Clients over the last few years have wondered, ”Why Level 7 ?” During my apprenticeship days under the late Master Stylist Kate Yeomans. I used to make coffee runs to Tim Hortons between clients for Kate, and the order was always…a medium double-double. She always taught me that “the perfect Level 7 caramel color was a Tim Hortons double double”. Her experience and expertise, her willingness to mentor & encourage but most importantly her passion for the craft and for building meaningful lasting relationships with her clients, have motivated me to now do the same.
Work for yourself.
Not by yourself.
