With over 20 years of experience under her belt, Lisa is far from new to the industry. From the beginning of her career, Lisa has been known for her crisp vision of contemporary style. From early on, she indulged herself in the philosophies of Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, Schwarzkopf and L’Oréal and has remained known for her meticulous attention to detail. Her approach would be described as creative yet pragmatic, taking into consideration the aesthetic, personality and lifestyle of each individual client. Her ‘tell it how it is’ approach will be sure to put a smile on your face and her ‘in depth’ knowledge of haircolour is sure to impress the greatest of skeptics.
After being nominated as a finalist in the prestigious ‘North American Hairstyling Awards’ in the ‘Haircolourist of the Year’ category in 2008, Lisa turned her focus towards educating professionals how to advance their skills in haircolour. For over 10 years she has leant her artistic direction to the American company Product Club, and has traveled from coast to coast sharing her expertise with professionals all over the nation. She can be found conducting intimate ‘hands on’ workshops or presenting on stages in front of hundreds of spectators in such cities as New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Her reputation as being a ‘perfectionist’ has gained her the opportunity doing hair behind the scenes at TFW and Fashion Cares. Her work has been showcased in such publications as Flare, Fashion, Vogue, Colorist Magazine and Salon Magazine. As the personal colourist to Canadian celebrity Sarah Gadon, Lisa’s haircolour has been seen in such films as Maps to the Stars, Dracula Untold, Indignation and The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, and television series such as 11.22.63 and Alias Grace.
“There is nothing better than bringing new concepts and ideas back to my clients and having them embrace it…. I still get butterflies.”
Alison is a new addition to our salon, but she is not new to the industry. Alison comes to l.a.m.b. with 25+ years of experience, working with some of Toronto’s top salons and stylists, such as Bill Rowley, Darren Z., The Alcorn, Robert Dunne and now Lisa McAuliffe. Keys to quality and modern hair come from education, and she strives to keep herself up to date. She has plenty of education with Sunlights’ balayage, L’Oréal, Schwartzkopf, and Labiosthetiques. Her attention to clients’ lifestyles and needs guides her to creating the best style and colour for them. Alison’s past achievements have included work with Look Good Feel Better, Fashion Cares, Make-over Madness with Marilynn Dennis, and making the Toronto Life’s Best Stylist in Toronto.
“My goal is to make my clients feel welcomed and comfortable in the salon, but most of all, leave the salon looking great and feeling great. 25+ years in the city. That’s all folks!”
From an early age, Alli has enjoyed working with hair, experimenting on herself with different colour variations and products. Born and raised in Québec, Alli found her way to the heart of Toronto in hopes to dive into her artistic career as a multitalented cosmetologist.
In 2017, Alli completed her Makeup Artist Diploma at the College of Makeup Art & Design. With a passion for the art of makeup came hair styling, colour and extensions. While performing makeup services for photoshoots, she was also asked to take on hairstyling. In 2020, she completed her Hairstyling Diploma at Avola College.
While Alli loves working with fashion colours, she also loves the delicate look of natural colours. Ultimately, her goal is to help clients achieve their dream hair while maintaining the integrity of the hair.
Alli is trained in Nano Link Extensions and loves giving confidence back to clients who experience hair loss.
Alli is known amongst our clients for her vibrant, mermaid hair that she does herself. She is very attentive to clients requests, is a born perfectionist and pays the utmost attention to detail. She is always eager to learn more and further her skills.
“I want to give people an edge and for clients to be the best version of themselves. I’ve also heard I give a killer scalp massage.”
Although Lenny only became a full time team member at Lamb in 2017, he is no stranger to the hair industry.

Since then he has expanded his list of services to include cuddles and kisses to any and every one in need. He is incredibly passionate about his work and is confident that he will provide an experience to remember.
