I've been seeing Danielle for close to 15 years so you can believe I am very happy with her and her work. I've been around to experience her growth as a stylist and a business-woman. She's done a wonderful job creating a unique little space in downtown Vancouver where old ladies like me can go to feel pampered, entertained and kept current in my style.

After moving to Vancouver five years ago, I went through three funky but unsatisfying downtown salons before being referred to Prepwork, where I've been loyal ever since. Prepwork has super-creative people and a cozy nook of a space, but mostly they can translate your ideas no matter how incoherently you're sharing them. To quote my girlfriend: "They just know how to make guys look goooood."

Danielle is a creative and intuitive who listens to what I want but am not always able to say. Or show. I wanted my hair to look like the picture. "Hmm," she says, "the lighting's all red and it's so small... I can't really see..." Two hours later I had the hair. She has talent and is not fussy about it. Our visits are always entertaining, low-key and I leave satisfied.

Lyris has great style and a great personality. I see her exclusively, for haircuts, hair color and highlights. She's always helpful in giving her opinion or suggestions for what will work for me and my hair type. She's not afraid to mix it up and try something different; I'm always happy with the outcome when we do. Seeing her is always a fun experience and I love the compliments I get when it's done!
— Laura Hulstein
Lyris has been my favorite hair stylist for the past 3 years for good reasons; she listens to her clients to understand their tastes and their lifestyle, and puts everything into consideration to create the best look for the individual. In addition, Lyris continues to learn and expand her knowledge in hair styling, which means that her clients will always get the best and the most hip hair cut and treatment. Most importantly, Lyris gives such positive energy. She's an awesome hair stylist and awesome friend!
I'm new to Prep Work and was paired with Lyris for a cut. She did very well in my humble opinion, plus she's just a great person to talk to. I will be back. Prep Work is such a cool studio!

Tricia has been my hairdresser for the past few years and I wouldn't leave her for anyone! She has a magical touch for bleach and blonding and somehow manages to help me keep my hair soft-looking, not fried! She's always learning new techniques and it shows each time I go for a cut!
— Monica Stewart-White
Absolutely LOVE Tricia...she is AMAZING!!!! I've been going to her every three weeks for 2 years. During that time, we've shared stories, restaurant tips and other funny stuff. She takes my recommendations and adds her own flare. Every haircut is perfection. She's exceptionally generous with her time, never makes you feel like she's rushing to her next appointment and always has a huge smile ready. She's a wonderful person and I'm glad to call her a friend and stylist!

Dylan is a great stylist. He is personable, has a great eye for detail and of course, is very talented. He makes my hair do things I didn't know it could! Always happy with the results after he does my hair - I would highly recommend Dylan to anyone!
— Michelle Cyprus
I have been going to Dylan for over 2 years now and I don't ever want to go to anybody else! He's always been super helpful with helping me choose different styles. We've gone from short to long; dark to blonde, blonde to red and back again. He's always made me look and feel fantastic!
— Callielo Brands
I've been coming to Dylan for my hair for a few years now and I always leave impressed. I would recommend him to anyone as I already do. He's taken me from platinum blonde to the natural looking blonde I've always wanted. As vague as my descriptions are, he always knows what I mean. The compliments seem countless once I've left Dylan's chair.
