Anita Lee, Opens An Intimate Modern Studio

Anita Lee landed her first job in the beauty industry in her late teens, and through her tenacious and inspiring drive to succeed, has built an impressive portfolio as a hair stylist, makeup artist, wedding professional, and beauty educator. She has just opened her first stand-alone shop, Helmet Salon, at 3722 Oak Street in Vancouver.

The full-service salon offers a variety of services including hair consultation and styling, makeup application, wedding packages, lash extensions by artist Koko Mochizuki, and brow micro-blading by Anna Chow. The Helmet team consists of full-time staff members Annie Tran and Tammy Lim.

Mijune Pak, Top Chef Canada judge, Food Network personality, and Founder of comments, “Anita is one of the most loyal, committed and hard-working talents I’ve ever worked with. She’s been my personal hair and makeup artist in Vancouver for the last 7 years and has probably given me 100+ looks. I can truly say she’s delivered nothing but the highest results and is a leader in her industry.

Helmet Salon uses La Biosthétique Paris products exclusively. The extensive French product line, manufactured in Germany, includes hair and scalp care, make-up, and skin care. “I decided to partner with them because their products are natural and of the highest quality. They are a family oriented company and we share the same values – teamwork, community, and excellence. I am very proud to be a La Biosthétique makeup Educator and Brand Ambassador.

Helmet was designed by the award winning firm House of Bohn. The intimate, modern studio features natural wood elements and contemporary lines throughout creating a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

Helmet represents a crown or protective covering and describes Anita’s love for her craft and the care she has for each client. “Helmet has definitely been a passion project of mine and a dream in the making,” says Anita. “I’ve always been a creative person and being able to make my clients feel extra beautiful for their big day, special event, or just because, is a great feeling.”
