I have a fabulous undercut bob with shaved crosshatch design al la Julie! I love it: my hair is off my neck and I can hide it or show it off as I like. Emerald helped me out with some upkeep prior to a wedding, much appreciated. Thank you so much, ladies 😃
This was my first visit to the designHouse salon (Hudson location) After a brief intro to each other, Alyssa and I discussed some ideas about my cut. She was very informative and offered some great suggestions that would compliment the cut I was thinking of. End result...I really liked the cut and the conversation. My initial experience has been a great one and as an added bonus I received compliments from both family and friends. I’m not in the habit of writing reviews but I felt that in this case it was certainly warranted. I’ve been to a few good barbers in Victoria and Vancouver and I believe Alyssa belongs right up there with them. She’s certainly a skilled barber/ stylist. Gentlemen...If you’re in search for a talented barber that really takes an interest in making you look and feel good you owe it to yourself to enjoy the experience as I have. — BL
Great salon, with a sustainable focus in the products they use and sell. I've had my hair done twice now by Julie, who is great. She listens to what you'd like done and talks you through what she can do to get the results you want. She was also very helpful with tips for someone, like me, who is a novice at doing her own hairstyling. She's very personable and likes to chat. I usually prefer keeping quiet, but she does a good job at making you feel comfortable and I found myself chatting away with her. She keeps up to date with new techniques and is very knowledgable about how to deal with different hair types. Would definitely recommend.
I had an appointment with Robin and I had a wonderful experience! My hair needed some help and she definitely provided it. I love my hair and it feels great! I love the vibe of the salon as well. Overall great experience!
Prices are reasonable and Rikki took the extra time to show me how to style my new cut! We also discussed future options. A very positive experience.
Rikki did an amazing job with my curls. She gave them some serious love and moisture they had been lacking and my hair feels amazing. I felt truly pampered and am so appreciative for the care and attention. A good haircut really leaves you feeling renewed!
Wasn’t happy with the result of my first appointment (full colour and cut) and when I expressed this they were very willing to fix it and went above and beyond to accommodate me. End result (fixed by robin) was perfect! Also a beautiful salon design wise, comfortable and pleasant atmosphere at both locations.
Wonderful products (Davine), professional and polite service and fantastic results! I have full head blonde highlights, a cut and treatments every 6 to 8 weeks and I’m happy every time I visit 🙂
Julie always greets me like an old friend meeting for another leg of my hair adventure. I keep wanting something different each visit and she is always helpful and supportive. Right now I'm trying to grow my hair out to a bob and the transitional cut she gave me is fun and super cute. Thank you to DesignHouse and Julie.
This is the second time that Lex has cut my hair and it is the second time I have loved it. Lex is brilliant. She has an ability to read a person's personality and how their hair works and suggests/creates a cut that you can love everyday. She rocks.
Design house salon is a great place to get your hair done. It smells so good in there and they are on a mission to go green as much as possible. They are friendly, and hospitable. Aaron did a super job on my hair! Thank you Design House Salon!
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.
Chantelle and her team are the best. I’ve been going to them for years now and wouldn’t suggest anyone else. I love their business philosophy around sustainability and the fact they use eco friendly products. They treat everyone with warmth and kindness. Really enjoyable salon to visit. Always relaxing and fun. Highly recommend this crew

I am absolutely in love with my new hair by Robin. It was my 3rd time seeing her and each time I learn more about how to care for my curls day to day. So happy I’ve found a stylist who cares about my own skill because 99% of the time, I’m the one doing my own hair.
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.
Great salon! I loved the look and vibe in the new Fernwood location. Emerald gave me a great cut and I felt super comfortable making a big change with her (I cut off about 12 inches!).
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.
Stylists are confident and know what they are doing! Great attention to detail and super friendly. The salon itself is also super nice and modern
Great enviroment. It was a relaxing comfortable atmosphere, a great way to spend a Saturday monring getting pamper..the popcorn and flavored water is a nice touch...but the head massage was my highlight by the very talented Miss Emerald. Thanks for an amazing job on my colour correction Emerald. I love my new hair do. Dawn
Great salon. Superb service and treatment. Experienced stylists, a variety of services and a variety of natural salon grade hair products, lotions and makeup. I highly recommend them.
I don't usually write reviews but felt that I must after my visit to Design House. I came in for a colour correction and Rikki surpassed all my expectations of what we could achieve in one sitting. She was so thorough with her consultation and I love my new colour. The salon had a great atmosphere and I'd recommend it to anyone. Do yourself a favour! 🙂
Emerald is a joy! Her passion and creativity is evident in her work. Can’t wait to go back each time for a fresh cut and some stunning colour
Beautiful salon, with wonderful owners and staff. It always feels inviting & relaxing, and you walk out feeling so much better. Cory does amazing hair. Also, I am a big fan of their environmental initiatives.
My daughter can home radiant, and positively glowing! Robin helped her learn how to care for her newly curly hair, and gave her a new do she loved. Wonderful experience. Also great support through the booking process. Thanks!
