About Emil

Emil Kleinfeller has the reputation for producing precision-crafted hairstyles. His down-to-earth approach and experience give him a unique and a passionate flair. Coming from three generations of hairdressers, it was natural that by age 16, Emil was apprenticing under two of Budapest’s elite stylists, where he got inspired and laid a strong foundation for his hair dressing career.


After winning the national junior championship during the last year of his education, Emil moved to Canada, where within 5 years, his dream came true and he opened his hair studio. His attention to precision and technical excellence has allowed his studio to continuously thrive. His cutting approach uses Sasson principles, creating timeless shapes and finding the best styles for his clients’ features, personality and lifestyle!


He believes in constant learning and education to keep stylists excited about their work and clients in love with their stylists. Emil strives to provide constant in-house education for his team on an ongoing basis, but most importantly, he believes in continuously growing and improving at what he's most passionate about—cutting hair.
