I am VERY excited to announce that Transitions Hair salon has HIRED our first employee, after being in business for 10 years! Her name is Martina Vaillant, and she is absolutely wonderful! She will be taking over my business for me, to accommodate my clients (and her own) while I'm away on maternity leave, and continuing to work alongside me, upon my return. Thank you for you patience and support during this time of change, dearest family, friends and clientele
As of Tuesday, July 17th, 2018, we will now be accepting payment via Square. It is fast, paperless, and seems to be the way of the future for processing payments. It offers chip, tap, or swipe options for payments, and receipts can be sent via email or text. We are really excited about this new change, and we hope our clients appreciate the upgrade as well.
On July 8th, 2008, Transitions Hair Salon opened it's doors. I can't believe that it's already been 10 years!
Wow, time sure flies :)

*100% Biodegradable (safe to use in rivers, lakes and streams)
Wow! It has been an even longer amount of time since my last blog post. I will try do do better at that from now on. My family has been VERY busy creating handmade goods, that we now sell at Transitions Hair Salon. It all started because of a Holiday Craft show that we attended in December of 2017. We were given very good feedback about our products, and we made great sales!
At Transitions Hair Salon, we now sell handmade soap, earrings, wooden rings, bracelets,
and cutting boards (when available).
Everything is one-of-a-kind, and is made with love and quality craftsmanship. We hope you can find a treasure for yourself, or someone else on your gift-giving list!
It has been awhile since our last blog update. With December just around the corner, we're entering the Holiday Season again! Do you need a gift for someone on your list? Come and see what Transitions Hair Salon has to offer! We have gift certificates, one-of-a-kind handmade jewelry, stocking stuffers, Organic Colour Systems Holiday gift sets, Carina Organics haircare, and more! Check out our "Gallery" section to see photos of the shop all decorated for the Holidays.
With all of that fresh snow, it looks and feels like Christmas is right around the corner. We have plenty of gifts to choose from this year, including stocking stuffers, gift sets from Organic Colour Systems, handmade jewelry (made by Courtney O'Connor), gift cards & more! Come and check us out this week, for our last week before we close for Christmas HOLIDAYS!

I've been working around 70 hours per week to transform Transitions Hair Salon from a Paul Mitchell focus salon to an exclusively organic salon, using Organic Colour Systems as my starting point. Check out the "Gallery" tab to see what the salon is looking like these days! The last step to this TOTAL makeover is ordering in the new care line & styling products, which will be happening before this week is over! Photos of the new products coming soon!
After 14 years of working in the hairdressing industry, 10 of those years of working with Paul Mitchell, and 7 of those years of owning Transitions Hair Salon (which was a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon), I have decided to make a HUGE change. I am switching things up! This Spring, I am going to be changing over to a product line that aligns with my philosophies regarding health, wellness, and the environment. The product is called Organic Salon Systems (http://www.organicsalonsystems.com/). I have done a lot of research, and a TONNE of work to make this happen, and I am so happy to have found a system that delivers professional results, as you would expect! I'm really looking forward to the positive changes that are already starting to come from this decision, and I couldn't have done it without the love and support from family, friends, and my enthusiastic clientele! Transitions Hair Salon will also be having a 70% OFF PAUL MITCHELL CLEARANCE SALE until everything is gone, to help make room for new stock! Visit our SALE tab to see what's left!
THANK YOU AGAIN! ♥♥♥
