Kedar – Creative Director

Availability: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday by appointment

It was at the age of thirteen, while helping his mother in the salon she worked for, that Kedar first began to develop an acumen for hair care. As a young man going to the barber shop with its long wait times and absentee stylists, motivated Kedar to change that persona by opening his own salon. While still in his early twenties he became a licensed stylist and opened his first unisex salon called Colors (with a partner).

In 1993, Kedar ventured on a solo effort by opening his own salon aptly named Kedar Hair Inc. Kedar believed the salon environment should be warm and welcoming and its staff should reflect that through their professional and friendly manner. Kedar’s vision for a salon and spa which emphasizes diet and nutrition as well as the use of well balanced cleansers and conditioners has now come to fruition. Kedar Hair Inc (KHI) is known for its dedicated stylists, barbers who are committed to educating and caring for each patron. While operating his salons, Kedar has also managed to balance a career as a actor/comedian for over 16 years.

Kedar has performed on stage with notables such as Russell Peters, Kevin Hart, Sean P. Diddy and many others. Kedar has been in films with many well know actors and performers including Chris Rock, Mercedes Ruehl, Ving Rhames, Will Ferrell, Judd Hirsch, Gregory Hines and Dave Chappelle. When not sculpting hair or on set Kedar, an avid golfer, can be found on one of the many links in Ontario.
