Behind the chair, as an international platform artist and trainer or as a key stylist in films or theater. Laddie has built a large following as a stylist for his skills with the scissors, but what really set him apart was his outstanding listening skills, he seeks to understand his clients’ preferences and desires. This skill is highly transferable to real estate, where understanding a client’s specific requirements is crucial for finding the right property.

Giving Back Is Always in STYLE

Laddie and his wife, Shelley hold a strong belief in actively contributing to and supporting the community where they live and work. In 2006, they initiated something truly special.  They believe that every child has a unique story to tell, stories that can bring a smile to your face or move you to tears. With this as motivation, they started an initiative called TLC@Home (Touching Lives of Children at Home)

TLC@Home is dedicated to providing shoebox gifts to children in various participating schools across Saskatoon. The journey began with just a few classes in a single school, and over the years, they have continued to expand the number of children we reach annually. In 2014, with the invaluable support of our community partners, Hairstyle Inn Salon, and kind-hearted individuals and local businesses, they extended their outreach to encompass five schools, delivering personalized gift boxes to just under 1000 children.

"My amazing wife Shelley is the driving force of TLC@Home, I am immensely proud of all she has achieved, and we are absolutely thrilled to be part of a team comprising passionate and generous individuals. Our ultimate objective is to touch the lives of every child in every community school in Saskatoon. Together, we can make a profound difference in the lives of these children and the wider community."
