Chantal Branchaud - Owner/Stylist
Chantal Minnaar was born in South Africa in 1983. The roots and history of people has always been fascinating to her. That's where the 83 in Salon 83 comes from, a little bit of Chantal's start.
In 1996 her family moved to Canada and a year later to Canmore. While Chantal doesn't often take advantage of the abundance of winter sports in the area, the mountains immediately stole her heart. Canmore is where she became Canadian - her village, her love, her home and her passion for hair.
In 2005, Chantal attended Delmar hair school in Calgary. She was lucky to be taken in by a great group of women in Canmore who helped her refine her skills and grow into the stylist she is today. With continued education from these ladies and many Redken classes, she finally found a passion that allows her to never have to work another day in her life. She loves that she gets to socialize everyday, and learn more about the many histories of amazing people while making their hair beautiful!
