Meet Julia Bar-Dayan
“The most beautiful thing is to have someone leave and feel good about themselves, which will lead them to make others feel good. I aim to be the igniter of positivity.”
A good haircut can make you feel like the best version of yourself.
Julia Bar-Dayan, self-proclaimed “beauty intentionist” takes the joy of a new ’do to the next level.
Sitting in front of a salon mirror, you would expect to recognize who you see. Julia, however, opens her clients’ eyes to a deeper understanding of who they are and what they want to become.
At Vibe With Love, Julia has created an immersive haircutting experience that goes far beyond the physical realm. “I give intentional haircuts. I get people to enter a mindful space where right before their haircut, they clear their mind of everything going on, and they visualize the best version of themselves.”
After this exercise, Julia cuts their hair. Having their split ends physically cut out of their lives, her clients leave with the momentum to pursue their ideal selves. “It’s all about mindfulness,” Julia explains. “You have to believe in it to ignite the spark.”
Julia believes wholeheartedly in the spreading of positivity, and does so in every haircut she gives. “The most beautiful thing is to have someone leave and feel good about themselves, which will lead them to make others feel good. I aim to be the igniter of positivity.”
The unique power of hair is not lost on Julia. She relates its origins to Jewish sources, telling the story of Samson, whose unexplained powers stemmed from his beautiful hair. “This story is based on the fact that our hair is like our spiritual antennas. We receive a lot of knowledge and power through and out of our hair. It is important for me to get my client’s hair to its healthiest state to strengthen the energy they give out and take in.”
Julia uses her strong intuition to give a transformative beauty experience to each of her clients. Her authentic care and pure intentions come through in every interaction she has.
“We say we’re on the earth to make the world a better place. When people feel good on the outside, it helps them to feel good on the inside too, and they become more motivated to do good.”
Julia gives more than just a haircut. With a pair of scissors in hand, she spreads goodwill and plants a vitality in people’s spirits, giving them a new frame of mind with which to take on the world.
Julia Bar-Dayan is the owner of Vibe With Love. She is a licensed hair stylist, makeup artist, brow specialist and microblading artist and works out of her private home studio in Thornhill.
