Just had an amazing hair experience with Riki. She was really knowledgeable and took her time speaking to me about what I wanted and what we could achieve with my hair. I absolutely love how my hair turned out and I’ve booked another appointment with her in 8 weeks. I also have to mention that she gave me what was literally the best head massage I have ever had! 🙂
Cory is a very good listener and I feel she cut my hair very well but didn't hesitate to tell me what was actually possible within the limitations of my hair. She has a good chair-side manner.
Cory is absolutely amazing, I have been to so many salons and by far this blew all the others out of the waters. Their sustainability initiatives are incredibly impressive and want to acknowledge that I really appreciate it. I went here for a colour correction, unsure if anything could really be done, and I left feeling beautiful!
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.
love this salon!! the atmosphere is so nice and calming, and sara did a great job on my haircut!!! love how she seemed to know exactly what i wanted and what would look best one me. i wouldn't get my haircut anywhere else!
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!
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 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.
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.
I absolutely love going to design house salon. Always a great time and great customer service. It's comfortable and the stylists know their stuff!
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
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!
Rikki is a very talented hair stylist. She can visualize what I want and create it with ease. Always positive and cheerful. Love the space as well!
I have been seeing Emerald for the last 4 years. She is amazing and always makes my hair look BOMB. Colour, cut, advice, anything- she is my go to! And she is a total ray of sunshine 🙂 the salon is a wonderful place full of wonderful people who do wonderful work and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
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.
Had a great first experience at Design House on Saturday. It was busy and things were behind but I was offered tea and popcorn to sustain me! Meghan is an amazing stylist and even cooler person. The service was the best I've ever seen at a salon and I'm so happy with my hair! Win win!
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!
I always get my hair cut at Design House and I am always pleased by the results. I go to Rikki and Julie and highly recommend either of them! The free tea or coffee is a great touch and the space is pleasant to be in.
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! 🙂
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.
Love this place and all the beautiful people that work there. I got a clean up for my hair and then was surprised that they had a Barber on hand and she did an amazing job on my beard. Thanks to Robin Helenius for a decade of great hair.
I really enjoy the warm, friendly staff and superior service at Design House Salon. Both Corey and Julie do amazing jobs on my various hair styles and cuts. Very friendly and I always have a great gab while I'm there. They make me feel at home and even offer free coffee while you wait. Highly reccommend!
Julie is the most amazing hair stylist I have ever been to. She works with you to get to know your hair, and keeps it happy and healthy. I have been going to Julie for 2 years now, and couldn't be happier with every journey we've taken my hair through. I have curly hair and she takes good care of it (which is hard especially since I flip flop between very dark and blonde!)
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.
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.
