the team


Kashmir Salon artists are all independently run businesses operating out of Kashmir, meaning we are all self-employed and do our own booking. Please contact the stylist of your choice to book an appointment, or email us if you would like a recommendation. 


Tess Marie Howroyd

hair artist / owner

With her techniques clients are able to come for appointments every 3-6 months. Along with all other Kashmir stylists, staying on top of education is very important to her. Styles and techniques are always changing and she loves to keep on top of her game by constantly attending classes and online education.

Willow Shull

hair artist

Willow became a licensed cosmetologist in 2014, and since then has completed her lash and waxing certifications, getting experience in all areas of the beauty industry. However, she enjoys being behind the chair the most, specializing in balayage and blondes. She keeps up with all the latest trends and innovations by continuing her education with top hair trainers, stylists and courses.
Outside of the salon, Willow juggles her time between her fur babies with other beauty businesses – beside her station in the salon you’ll see her homemade natural soy candles, Willow Wild. 
Willow works hard to keep her passion for hair eco-friendly and ethical by choosing non-toxic, green and cruelty-free products. She believes having less of an environmental footprint and keeping things clean are just as important as giving beautiful hair to each one of her clients. 

If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment, text Willow at 250-661-4400.
