Get your hair done in St. Albert at a child friendly salon and do some shopping while you’re there?! Sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t! A few weeks ago I was treated to a new look at Loxx the Hair Salon and had a fabulous experience. I share my thoughts with you below.
The first thing you will notice about Loxx is that it’s truly warm and welcoming. Carrie and her staff, Kerri-Ann and Britni, have been working together for years and seem like family. There are also lots of regulars popping in as well as new clients and everyone is treated like a special guest.
To begin, Carrie and I had a consultation in the back colour room. She quickly understood what I was looking for in my new look, gave me some suggestions and got to work. She also didn’t make me feel bad for lots of hair neglect over the summer!
Though it is nice to get away and have you hair done sans children, it’s not always realistic. You don’t have to feel guilty about bringing the kids with you. There are comfy couches at the front and some toys. We brought a few of our own things as well as the iPad along. The ladies were comfortable with my 2 year old son and made him feel safe and welcomed in a new environment. Usually they can squeeze your tot in for a cut of their own while you’re there. It’s just over $12 for 5 years old and younger!
As you can see, I like to multitask. 2 haircuts in one trip and I was able to do a little gift shopping as well. Loxx has a variety of salon products as well as local treasures such as Crowns and Coroknits, Brobrick Soaps, hand knitted scarves and more!
In just over 2 hours, the exact amount of time she said she needed, Carrie created this transformation with my once limp, damaged, neglected hair! I was and continue to be thrilled with both the cut and colour.
You can find Loxx the Hair Salon right across the street from Lion’s Park in the heart of St. Albert. They do their best to accommodate walk ins, but I would recommend calling in advance 780-460-0466. Carrie also shared a hair-styling tip with me that has seriously changed everything for me- keep your eyes out for that post coming soon!
