In 2009 Cindy began competing at the National and International Level.  Her 2009 Vintage Love collection scored a finalist for Canadian Editorial Hairstylist of the year, Contessa Awards, finalist for Ontario Stylist of the Year, Mirror awards.  Her 2015 collection which shall remain unnamed landed her a coveted spot as a finalist for the North American Hairdresser of the year, Texture Stylist, and as a finalist for  Canadian Hairdresser of the Year.

Cindy’s strong beliefs in professional growth influenced how Village Hair Studio approached continuing education for the salon’s team. Education is key and is a fundamental requirement according to Cindy; the salon is committed to it. When passion and education meet, you have a professional stylist that is always researching the latest and greatest products, trends and ingredients – that’s Cindy.
