open for three weeks. In the same "hallway" as Eddie Bauer and almost next door to the drug store and on the same side. Big windows, big store. A huge selection of salon-quality hair products at much lower prices. I'd estimate two-thirds of what I'd pay in a salon. And a can of salon-style hair spray at one-third the price I'd have paid at what was the salon I used to go to. (That ended with a recent haircut from hell--I'm never going back.) Hair and body care products that I've never seen in any store in Nanaimo Really great customer service. Not pushy, but there to help. If you're a nail polish, etc., freak, they have the biggest selection of OPI products I've ever seen anywhere. TONS of Bed Head products I didn't even know existed, including a whole line for men, which I also didn't even know existed, but my friend bought for her husband. Unbelievable novelty soaps that my friend is going back to buy for her stepkids at Christmas. I've never seen soap that looked like that before--just fantastic. In the back, a very spacious uncrowded hair salon. I have an appointment there for Monday, to try to fix the bad haircut. The stylist I talked to was saying to me exactly the things I was thinking about the haircut. And even said to me "XXX cut your hair, didn't he?" Right on the money. So on Monday, which is her day off, she's coming in anyway to help with my hair. It's that bad. The store and salon will be open anyway.
When we got back to my place, my friend told me that there was no way she was letting me get out of there without making an appointment to get this awful hair cut fixed up. It's really, really bad. Hallelujah!
If you're a hair and body care product junkie, I'd highly recommend their product selection, which is huge, and the prices that I don't think anyone in town can even come near.
