Hair stylist Sarah LeNeveu has opened her new Lysh Hair Salon in downtown Fernie.
The first time business owner commented on why she wanted to open her own salon. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and the timing was right,” said LeNeveu. “I wanted it to be downtown, it has good lighting, high ceilings and lots of traffic for walk–ins.”
LeNeveu is an expert in all areas of hairstyling, cutting and coloring, but especially enjoys doing up-do’s for any occasion, cutting and styling curly hair and coloring hair blonde.
“Everyone loves to feel beautiful. I like the whole process; clients coming in, socializing and feeling good when they leave.”
Lysh is available for group events like bridal sessions and ladies night out.
The whole experience and the ambiance of the salon is what will wow Lysh clients. Two relaxing massage chairs, a plush couch at the hair wash station, high-end hair products, relaxing music and HDTV at each station, make-up touch ups after a hair treatment and stylists with at least 10 years experience. Nadine Cunningham is the second stylist at Lysh. “Adept in all aspects of her art as a hair stylist, Nadine has the skills to create the shapes and structures that work best with your features and lifestyle.”
Every week, Caked by Ashley, Ashley Devine, will be stocking Lysh up with cookies and cupcakes for clients to nibble on while cold and hot drinks are on stock to quench anyone’s thirst.
They also offer before and after pictures to highlight transformations.
The salon space itself has received a major transformation. Electrical, plumbing for the sinks, new flooring, drywall and paint have created a tranquil and spa-like feel to the salon.
To celebrate its grand opening LeNeveu held a wine and cheese for people to meet the stylists on Friday evening and a customer appreciation day with complimentary shampoo, blow dry and styles all day long and a barbecue by Friends For Friends on Saturday. LeNeveu would like to continue to offer unique get-togethers at night.
“The first week has been amazing,” said LeNeveu. “The outstanding support from all sorts of people and businesses coming in and all the compliments. The neighbouring businesses have been really supportive. It really means a lot to us to receive a very warm welcome with flowers and hugs.”
