Quyen Duong Hannah Ly

Quyen is a leading hairstylist, an entrepreneur, and the owner of Canvas Hair and Nail Salon. With more than 20 years of experience, Quyen was professionally trained at Bumble & Bumble Academy in New York where she got a deeper understanding of hair, aesthetics, and beauty.

While growing up in a small countryside town near the sea in Vietnam, Quyen was constantly exposed to nature; nowadays, that natural connection explains why she prefers to use environmentally friendly products. She strongly believes beauty is a natural blessing that comes from inside, and taking care of our body is a way to nurture that inner beauty.

Quyen likes reading philosophy, traveling to different places, and learning about different cultures when she's not taking on new challenges or trying new things. Always motivated and energetic, she loves filling up her life with laughter and adventure.

Hannah is our bright little gift for our clients. Born and raised in Southern Vietnam, she holds an Esthetician and Spa Management Diploma and has two years of experience in the spa industry.

It's no surprise that her favorite quote is “Everything happens for a reason” from the late Marilyn Monroe. Hannah moved from Toronto due to the pandemic closures in 2020; now she's starting a new life in Vancouver, and we're blessed to have her abilities and experience in Canvas Hair and Nail Salon.

At work, Hannah's most distinctive qualities are her passion for service and her focus on the client. At home, however, her entire attention is devoted to her beloved kitten Boo and making time for her favorite hobbies -traveling and drawing.
