Meet Maya

I grew up in Nepal...


but my family and I moved to Manitoba in 2011. After I completed high school in Winnipeg I had several different choices of what to study, but hairstyling was the only field that appealed to me. I was attracted to not only learning a trade but also to the social aspect of it. As I got more involved in my chosen career, I came to love it even more than I thought I would.  Upon graduation I worked in a busy salon in a mall in Winnipeg which is a very different environment than the one at Curve Hair Studio. I joined the team here shortly after moving to Ontario in the fall of 2018.  Specializing in curly hair has completely changed how I feel about my own hair and now I’m always confident that my curls will look great. I can teach you how to truly love your hair too.

I love cutting curly hair...


 and thanks to my DevaCurl training, I know exactly how to work with waves and curls to achieve their potential. I absolutely love hearing the stories from guests and listening to what they have to say about their hair journey. I am always happy that my guests are comfortable and able to talk to me. I believe one of the things that makes me unique as a hairstylist is that I am multilingual (English, Nepali, Hindi), which allows me to provide better services to guests who need it.

I have also discovered a passion for balayage...


and vivid colours. The skill and technique required to achieve both of those has been a challenge that I’ve embraced. My priority is always healthy hair so sometimes it will take more than one visit to get to your colour goals and in my professional opinion, Olaplex is essential in all colour transformations.   


I have different experiences due to being born in a different country...


My culture and my values are different, so are the memories and life lessons I have been taught. If I still lived in Nepal I wouldn’t have been allowed to be a stylist and that is a big fulfilling part of my life, so I feel blessed everyday. I love travelling, I’ve gone to many countries and I have many more countries and places I would like to visit. This gives me a unique global perspective on the variety of hair textures and personalities that are all around the world. This allows me to better visualize and communicate with you on your hair goals. Together we will create a plan to get you there.
