review rating 5  Found my Stylist, Tara. I love the new location and happy you were able to fix my hair with your magic touch. Best person for thick curly hair. I hope her other clients love her as much as I do. Thanks so very much to all the ladies who helped me get in touch with Tara. You are all awesome.

    review rating 4  Lex is super laid back and friendly. She was honest about what she could do with my hair, as before I had a bad experience at another salon that left my hair dead and broken from over processing it. She told me we can do it in steps to get the achieved look I desired. All in all a great experience. Thanks.

    review rating 5  This was my second visit, and so far, both have been exceptionally pleasant experiences. Alyssa has been attentive, and made a point to consult with me to ensure she knew what I was looking for; even on the second visit - rather than assuming I wanted the same as last time. The conversation was fun, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the people are friendly.

    review rating 5  I have been with designHouse Salon since it first opened and I will likely never change salons ever again. Chantal (the owner) has brought her vision to a reality and created a beautiful space with knowledgeable hair-artists who are continually being educated on a consistent basis.

    The salon focuses strongly on sustainability and is environmentally aware every step of the way and offers a wide variety of quality product at affordable prices.

    designHouse Salon is an impeccably clean and trendy space with an inviting ambiance. There is usually great music playing in the background while you drink your complimentary coffee/tea. They also give out little dishes of popcorn, which I think is just a really great touch!

    My hairdresser Julie is really great. She always has a variety of ideas if I'm looking for a change. If I have an issue such as dry hair, she always has the right solution to offer me and I have yet to be disappointed with her suggestions. She is also really great to chit chat with while I'm there. And of course the best part, Julie gives a wicked scalp massage at the shampoo station.

    review rating 5  I saw Cory at designHouse because I read the Google reviews extolling her skills with colour corrections, and they were right :) I went from dark brown (professionally done) to much lighter and healthier than I thought possible in one session. Although I'm super excited for my follow-up session in a month to perfect the tone, the colour as it is now is very pretty and even, and my hair is so voluminous and bouncy after the cut and blow dry.

    Also - it cost slightly less than she quoted in the consultation and took exactly the amount of time she booked. Super impressed.

    Also, also - the Fernwood salon is so nice and chill. I highly recommend it over the hustle and bustle (and noise!) of downtown.
