Modern Effects Hair Design
Denise and Bonnie are the dynamic duo behind Modern Effects Hair Design. Together, they help people to look and feel their best. The salon offers a variety of styling services – perms, colours, highlights, foils, and of course haircuts and hair styling. They even do facial waxes, and sell a variety of hair products, such as Paul Mitchell, AG, Vavoom, KMS, American Crew, Quantum, Bed Head, Joico, and Moroccanoil.
Modern Effects sees just about everyone walk through their doors. Whether it’s an older lady getting her perm redone, a man wanting to hide his grays or have a quick trim, a child’s first haircut, or a teenager’s prom hairdo, Denise and Bonnie have seen it all. They always do their best to ensure that you leave your chair feeling confident with your new look.
What is your signature service?
I’d say we’re best known for our colours. A lot of our clients are looking to have us dye their hair.
How did you get started?
Well, Bonnie and I had worked together at a different salon. When that salon closed, Bonnie and I decided to try opening a salon of our own. And now, 14 years later we’re still here and we still love working together!
What inspires you to do what you do?
It’s the people. I love to be social, and I love to chat with the people who sit in my chair. The regulars become like family. We’ve even been doing the hair of entire families for years, and it’s wonderful to get to see kids whose hair you cut when they were tiny, grow up and head off to university and such. It’s great to get to be a part of that.
