Kajal Mona Allahyari
Mona was born and raised in Iran and moved to Canada in 2014. Similar story to Suki Takagi, her life in Iran brought certain limitations to how successful and respected she could be as a female stylist; while immigrating to a new country has been an alienating experience at times as well. Working at Suki's has changed that for her in a truly meaningful way. At Suki's she’s among colleagues and clients from diverse cultural backgrounds. She feels like she’s finally in a place where growth and having a community is possible. Her best moments at Suki's are when she make a client feel good and empowered through her work; when they leave the salon with a smile on their face. Outside of work, she loves cooking, spending time with her friends and face-timing with her family. She finds inspiration everywhere, from nature to observing other people's fashion and aesthetic choices while walking down the street.
