About

Welcome to my blog.

My name is Ramsey Sayah. I am Master Stylist, with over 20 years of industry experience and owner of three successful salons in Ottawa.

I opened Texture Hair Salon in 2000, ten years later I opened Texture Hair Boutique and in 2017 I opened Texture Salon et Spa.

I take great pride in our award winning team of Stylists and although I have been a mentor to them – I draw inspiration from them every day.

Dear Hairdresser is a way to share what I’ve learned and leave a mark on the industry.

I am very proud of my career to date, but there is still so much more to learn and do.

In addition to working in the salon, I’ve worked as a columnist, on television sets and competed in several hair competitions.

Even though my clientele list includes actors, athletes and politicians – my philosophy is to treat every guest that walks into our salon like a celebrity.

I have traveled all around the world working with the top brands in the beauty industry including L’Oréal Professionnel and Wella Professionals.

Over the last two decades I’ve worked hard to gain the respect of my peers – through my passion, leadership and hairdressing skills. I have a passion for what I do and believe that this profession is always undergoing exciting and new changes.

I remember one time Fabio and I were in Berlin, and just finished the Trend Vision show. I can’t remember what year it was. The hotel we were staying at was right downtown and the Americans, Canadians and the Irish were all staying there.

Ireland had won that year, so the party in the lobby of that hotel was something special. Imagine 300 Industry people all partying the last night in Berlin with the Trend Vision champion. I bartended for most of the night, just to help out, then hung out with everyone for a bit.

When it was all said and done, Fabio and I were starving. We heard about a famous food truck that was serving Turkish food about 20 minutes away. Without a thought we were on our way.

Fabio and I had become very close because he was real with me.

Hanging out with him felt like you couldn’t be in a better place with a better person at that moment.

I think that’s why Fabio touched so many people with his personality. He truly wanted the best for you. The kind of guy, who gave his heart to you so you can go and be the best version of yourself.

If only we could do a little of what he did and gave to each other as he did, this world would be a little bit of a better place.

I love you Fabio and I am grateful for the many times we shared and the lessons you taught me. I can hear your voice now:

Oh Rammer, to what do I owe these kind words, I am humbled.

You will live in my heart forever Fabio.

Click here to read the interview I did with him in May 2016. This was one of his few personal interviews. I’m so glad I did it. It really shows Fabio’s personality, his passion for our industry and for life.
