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.
Wow, what a great place! The ambiance is warm and welcoming. The decor is lovely. The people are friendly and professional. Meagan did a great job of cutting and styling my hair and I left feeling marvelous. This is my new permanent hair salon.
Tara understood what I wanted, did exactly what she said she would do, and she’s real fun to chat with! Plus this place in Fernwood is real nice and quiet. Finally found someone to take care of my curls!
I love this salon for so many reasons (check out their product line). Julie is an amazing stylist. She's very talented, loves her profession and she's super fun to chat with while she's working. It's a bit of a drive from Campbell River but well worth it. I'll be back in March. I love my new hair; thank you so much!
I met the owners in passing and they were super friendly. I mentioned needing a cut and they signed me up for my appointment within a few moments. Tech forward shop as they automatically sent me a calendar invite and reminders. Upon arriving everyone was super friendly. My appointment was scheduled with Elissa as she specializes in Men's cuts. Elissa was the perfect balance of friendly and professional. She made a recommendation to change my style a bit, I love the cut and am now scheduled automatically with her every 5 weeks. Price was good, they also had some interesting hair products with a sustainable ECO focus. Upon leaving I was having trouble booking a taxi through my app, one of the staff volunteered to book me one and I didnt have to worry. Relaxed and drank tea until it arrived. All around great experience, I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
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!
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.
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 love this salon. Super friendly and accommodating staff. Beautiful, bright, clean and filled with gorgeous plants and an amazing "living wall". Cory is awesome! But what attracted me to this salon in the first place was their commitment to making this industry as green as possible. I will always support businesses that take these initiatives. Go, you'll be happy you did.
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!
It's been over a month since I had highlights in my hair and they still look great. Madison did a wonderful job. She is my go to girl from now on.
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 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 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!
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
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!)
Excellent salon! Right from the moment you walk through the front door you feel relaxed and well taken care of. Very friendly receptionist and my hair has never looked better. Never disappointed when I leave.
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!).
Great experience. Emerald is very sweet. She listens to you and offers new perspectives on your haircut. Gentle chat and great result. Everything I like in getting a haircut 💙
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!
Master Stylist Robin is UNREAL. I’ve been going to her for almost a year now and from my first consultation to my most recent visit (today) she has never disappointed - my hair is the best it has ever been! She mastered the warm blonde look I was going for from Day 1. If you’re looking for someone to make your hair vision a reality, go see Robin. She rules.
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!
It was a busy day at the salon, being so close to Christmas but Sara was welcoming, focused and kind and gave me a great look for the holidays. She even took the time to give curls to my normally straight look, which shows me that she is interested and passionate about her work. Could not be more pleased.
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.
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.
