The Man Behind the Brand

"Wielding shears and comb like a maestro of hair, Leonardo Redavid is the Vancouver-based master of hair whose 3 decades of living and breathing the artistry of hairdressing have given him the knowledge, wisdom and creative toolbox to feed your starving inner artist. "

Italian born Leonardo became Canada’s most celebrated stylist and platform artist within a span of just a few years after his first hair studio in 1985. Naturally charismatic, endlessly energetic and a determined teacher, Leo’s resume is a who’s who of the giants of professional beauty…working for the best & inspiring hairdressers the world over. In 1989, just 4 years after launching his studio, Leo was awarded the coveted Canadian Hairdresser of the Year. He later went on to become President and then Vice-President of Cosmetologist’s Association of British Columbia. His work has been featured in print media & television throughout Western Canada including Vancouver A.M. TV and in the pages of B.C. Women’s Magazine, Vancouver Magazine, Snippitz Magazine, Flare Magazine, and Salon Magazine.

Leveraging a lifetime of experience, Leonardo revolutionized the concept of healthy hair and unveiled a breakthrough in hair science with the launch of REDAVID Salon Products in 2012. Born behind Leo’s chair, perfected by science and bottled for you, REDAVID utilizes top shelf ingredients and the patented DYNAGEN yeast protein complex…proven to boost hair’s structural strength and give any client the healthiest, most full-bodied hair of their lives.
