Meet the Stylist: Vanna Burnham

February 9, 2015

Introduce yourself!

I’m Vanna Burnham, a Senior Stylist at SalonCapri’s Newton and Legacy Place locations.

How many years have you been a part of the SalonCapri team?

I have been with SalonCapri for an exciting three years!

Where did you study previously?

After graduating from high school, I did my training at the Academy of St. Laurent in beautiful Montreal, Canada.

What do you specialize in?

My passion is cutting beautiful short hairstyles and taking on exciting new coloring challenges!

What inspired you to become a stylist?

My inspiration for becoming a stylist began at the young age of 13 when all of my beautiful family members became my first clients. I started styling them for a variety of parties and gatherings and from then on, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in making people feel beautiful!

Which favorite hair care product has been in constant rotation for you behind the chair?

My first go-to is Kérastase’s Volumifique Leave-In Spray as it builds texture and volume while adding frizz protection without weighing hair down or making it feel stiff. I also adore Shu Uemura’s Fiber Lift gel for adding shine, support and structure to heat-styled strands that need a bit of added hold and protection!

Which celeb haircut and/or color are you loving right now and why?

Jennifer Lopez has really been rocking it lately! Everything about her current look is fabulous, from her length and style, to her amazing multi-faceted golden color!


What are your favorite hair colors or style trends right now?

My favorite hair style to create right now is big, sexy, voluminous Victoria’s Secret waves! I can’t get enough of it!

What advice would you give a client who wants to try something new or different with their hair?

You should definitely know what style you want to try before going into the salon. Bring your favorite pictures of different cuts that interest you so we can work together to decide which cuts work well with your lifestyle and your hair texture!

What hair products should everyone have in their arsenal at home?

Every client should own a good shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for his or her hair type. Great hair always starts with a solid cleansing and conditioning foundation!
