We think the world of our staff and we want you to think the same, too. Hence, the beginning of our new blog series, Staff Q&A. Trust is an essential component to any successful hair stylist-client relationship and we believe that by getting to know our stylists a little better, you’ll feel comfortable coming to them with all your hair care needs. Whether you’re a regular client or new and curious about who we are, get ready to discover our favourite people.
Besides earning more and more money to grow and still be profitable (like any business that wants to thrive), what do you think the goals of designHouse Salon are?
- Provide quality services that not only meet but exceed client expectations.
- Make everyone feel welcome and taken care of.
- Operate as sustainable as possible to minimize our carbon footprint
What do you contribute to the team that makes you stand out? What do/should clients come specifically to you for?
My willingness to teach clients and coworkers about proper styling tools and the importance of creating rituals to improve quality of not only hair but life as well.
What does sustainable beauty mean to you and why is it an important focus?
Sustainable beauty is important because I care about planet earth, mother nature and all earth’s plants and inhabitants. When you not only care about yourself but also your environment that is shared with others, this caring is contagious in the sense that people will, in turn, make sustainable choices for themselves as well as encourage others too.
Why should people come to designHouse Salon over the TONS of other available options?
It is nice to see and hear about other salons becoming more aware of our environment, however, dH (designHouse) has set the standard for sustainability way higher than any other salon as well as supports a team environment. By supporting dH, clients can feel good about minimizing their carbon footprint as well as support an active business of the local community.
What about the beauty industry excites you and why?
Being able to make people feel good about themselves. Sometimes without even noticing, we can make a big difference in people’s day/mood/life/confidence.
When you aren’t working, what are you doing? (ie. Hobbies, interests, etc.)
Lately, I have been into low to no cost activities like hiking, cooking, and am currently one world away from beating Super Mario Bros.
Do you prefer cinnamon or vanilla?
Easiest question yet! CINNAMON! So much that 2% makes me a special “Sara Latte” with cinnamon steamed into the milk.
If you could grant a co-worker a superpower, who and what would it be?
EMERALD: I would grant her super wings to fly anywhere in the world at any time so she could come back quicker.

Salty: stove-top popcorn with butter, salt, and yeast flakes
Sweet: Toast with peanut butter and honey
