You can’t hang your hair in the closet and say “I’m not wearing it today” nor would we want you to ever feel this way.

Hi. I’ve discovered The Cool Red Room through a friend and I’ve been going there about half a year now. It’s the first time in my life that I’ve had no dandruff in the Winter at all, all because I use the owner’s recommended hair products. Not only does my hair look fabulous (also cut and styled by owner and greatest hairdresser Donna) no…

I brought my teenagers – ages 12 and 17 – in for haircuts with Michelle this Saturday and they will be coming back! Michelle took the time to find out what they both wanted and gave them cuts that really suited their personalities. My 17 year said ‘It was as if she read my mind’. I also had a really great time hanging out and was treated to coffee …

I just had yet another wonderful cut by Donna. It is a breeze to manage and I am getting tons of compliments. I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else!

Another great trip to The Cool Red Room. Every interaction with Donna is a learning opportunity. I always leave with a smile on my face and amazing hair. I get so many compliments on my colour, Petula. You work magic.
Lindsay Kennedy
That’s what happens when I leave the Cool Red Room.  This last time, Petula softened the colour that had bleached from the sun while Donna did her magic with just a few more layers and voila!  I just started working at a new firm a week ago.  When I came in Friday with my fresh look I had so many compliments!  All this and what’s amazing is the peo…

Best haircut I have had in 40 years (no kidding).  Donna is a wizard with my flat, poker-straight, no body hair.  Will never go anywhere else from now on!
Nina Butcher
Petula the colourist has been doing my hair colour for just over 10 years. I know i can always go in with a new idea or even just the regular and leave fully satisfied everytime! I can always trust her skills and advice. I’ve also recently started getting my hair cut here by Rickielee and am always very happy with the result! My mother has been get…

After 30 years of cutting my hair, Donna still shines. I left my appointment feeling wonderful; the care and attention I receive by everyone at The Cool Red Room is consistently excellent. That evening I met four friends for dinner. Instead of the ‘Happy New Year’ I was expecting, the first comment from each of them was “I love your hair!”. A…
Anne MacNeil
Every time I visit Donna and Petula at thecoolredroom, I leave feeling like a million bucks. I sometimes suspect that there is some sort of magic or wizardry happening in that place; how else can I leave the salon each and every time I visit with absolutely perfect hair and feeling like I just spent a week at a spa?  Donna’s cuts cannot be beaten –…

Rickie Lee has been doing my hair for over two years now, and I can honestly say that my hair has never looked better! Even beyond being a talented stylist, Rickie takes the time to get to know you AND your hair, answering questions and being extremely engaging. Really, that’s why I love the Cool Red Room: even when you are there for hours, the c…
