Jan Patanao

A passionate colourist with more than a decade’s worth of experience, Jan has been mentored by some of Toronto’s top colour technicians. Her education journey began in 2009, when she joined Aveda to pursue a career training, educating and mentoring other aspiring artists, here she realised that sharing her knowledge and passion for the industry was at the very core of her career, and the path she had to follow.

As a COLOR.MASTER for KEVIN.MURPHY, Jan believes that continuing education is the way to stay current with trends, techniques, and she aims to not only teach technical skills, but to equip hairdressers with the skills needed for networking within the industry and paving the way for long, successful careers. Fashion, beauty, and creating beautiful hair colour in a sustainable way are what drives and inspires her.
