How are those resolutions coming along? If you're like most North Americans then you're well on your way to forgetting what you even decided to change for yourself (only 8% of people who make resolutions keep them!). 53% of Americans who participated in a resolutions study cited earning more money as a top decision for 2018, with 45% sticking to the tried and true lose weight and get in-shape choice. 92% of those participants will fail. To be fair, those are lofty and many tiered goals. Losing weight requires changed eating habits, potentially changed sleeping habits, and investing in a new activity such as a gym membership or fitness classes. That's a lot of change. It can be overwhelming! I'd like to present a very practical and very meaningful guide for positive change that’ll keep you going in 2018. Go paperless! This is a step in the right direction for reducing waste and becoming a more aware and sustainable resolver. On average, households receive 69 lbs of junk mail each year. That's [...]
Have you always wanted to be a hairstylist? “No...it was always a sort of hobby, but it took me a long time to realize this is what I was meant to do. [Before becoming a stylist] I went to university for 3 years studying Psychology then traveled for 3 years abroad.” If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? "Peru, I’ve always wanted to climb Machu Picchu.” Favorite place you have travelled to? “This is a really hard question because I’ve traveled to a lot of different places and have had a lot of VERY different and amazing experiences, but I’d say Dubai on a desert safari.” What do you love most about your job? “The diversity of it...every day is different, different people, different personal styles.” What do you look most forward to in your career? “Doing creative colours and competing in hair/makeup. I like challenging myself.” Why [...]

Katherine, Joan (the winner!), Courtney YAY! Congratulations to our long-time guest Joan, whose name was drawn on April 1 as the winner of our referral contest! Joan won free services for 1 year at Sin 7 Salon, just for referring 3 or more guests to us between January 1 and March 31. Each guest who referred at least 3 new people during that time was entered in the draw, and Courtney pulled her name out of the hat. HUGE MEGA THANK YOU to everyone who participated! We've really loved meeting all of your friends, family, neighbors, bank tellers, baristas, etc., and we sincerely hope they enjoyed coming in to Sin 7 Salon.

If you're one of our regular guests you'll know that we keep several iPads around the salon. They're great tools for consultations (loads of visuals at our fingertips), and a fun way to kill time while your hair colour is processing. Next time you're in, check out the 3 new folders that we've created for your viewing pleasure: Aveda Sourcing Stories, Aveda Makeup How-To's, and Aveda Hair How-To's. Each of these folders has several videos for you to enjoy in each of those subjects. Ever wonder where Aveda gets ingredients like Babassu, Morikue, Argan oil, Tumeric, or Uruku pigment? Now you can check out these amazing stories about organic and sustainable sourcing, processing, and many partnerships with indiginous people around the world. Cool, hey? For instance, did you know that the organic lavender and rose oil in Aveda products comes from Bulgarian family flower farms formerly occupied by the communist government? Indeed! Check out those and many other super interesting sourcing stories next time you're in. You'll learn just how committed [...]
Sigh. We really REALLY didn't want to ever have to do this. Instead of the issue of no-shows and last-minute cancellations getting better, it's gotten exponentially worse, so we've had to implement a new policy. Please take a minute to read about it here, and if you have any questions or concerns please direct them to Courtney at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is a true emergency, of course we will deal with that accordingly. We hold our guests in the highest regard, and we absolutely respect your time and the fact that "life happens". We also care deeply for our team of stylists, who work so very hard at Sin 7 Salon making you look and feel wonderful. As you know, we live in one of the most expensive regions in North America, and our cost of living is going nowhere but UP UP UP. When you're missing a huge chunk of a paycheque due to no-shows and last-minute cancellations, well, it makes it that much harder just to survive. Our stylists [...]
Hey everyone just a reminder that our old phone number is no longer active. To reach Sin 7 Salon you'll need to edit your speed dial to 604-560-5360. Thanks! See ya soon!
Well, not just yet, but we should be ready to move in to our new location on the corner of Johnston and Pacific in a few short weeks - if all goes well, October 15 will be our first day taking appointments there! Everything's wrapped in plastic right now and awaiting a coat of paint, but we have been assured that it WILL, SOON, look like an actual hair salon. We can't wait! PS - Save the date, Sunday November 16 is our Grand Opening/Holiday Kick-Off Soiree. You don't want to miss this shindig, we promise.
