Diane Grant

Year started at Kiyo:


Stylist Level:

Level 4 Stylist


Balayage and I give a mean scalp massage. I am so new in the industry so I am dabbling in a bit of everything to see where I fit in.

Why Kiyo?

I was so fortunate that Kiyo was looking for someone when I graduated hair school, I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. The amount of education is endless, the support from Kiyomi and the management team and all of the amazing stylists is overwhelmingly encouraging. This company invests in you and it feels amazing.

Why did you choose this industry?

Ever since I can remember I have always been that girl asking to play with everyone’s hair. Colour and cutting is so artistic and it feels amazing when you can make someone feel good about themselves just by making them look great!

Who is your industry Inspiration?

That is a tough question! I can’t answer with just one name; everyone at Kiyo inspires me in so many ways to be the best that I can be, inside and outside of the salon.

Favourite Go-to product:

Bb Dryspun, it’s like Magic!

What are your major accomplishments in life and business?

Being a strong, self-sufficient young person! Getting a job and striving for my dreams and making them reality. Setting goals, planning and making it happen for myself. Also, graduating university.

Cats, wine, cheese and naps.
