Langley’s Teriva Gilliat wins entrepreneur of the year

Organization honoured at Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards

Entrepreneur of the Year sponsored by Business Development Bank of Canada

Winner: Teriva Gilliat of Vivid Hair Boutique and Blow Dry Bar

Nominees: Sepehr Saebnia (Cool Heat Truck Parts); and Paul Lalli (Saladworks Canada).

Since founding Vivid Hair and Boutique and Blow Dry Bar in 2013, Gilliat had quickly built a steady clientale and reputation as a premier hair salon through innovation, education, community involvement, exemplary service and being environmentally responsible.

But none of that would be possible without the support of both their parents, and the salon’s staff.

“They are a big part of our team,” said John, Giliat’s husband. “They are a big part of what makes us succesful.”
