“I would say we do beautiful, natural hair. Healthy hair,” says Spirit Spa owner Linda Brigley, adding that the spa’s stylists do everything from big colour corrections to balayage and other colour techniques. “We do a ton of colour and that’s what we’re known for. And beautiful, stylish cuts, of course, have to go with it—but I would say a lot of colour work. We’re big on colour.” The stylists also participate in competitions, and Spirit Spa was recently announced as a finalist for the Contessa Awards for Canadian Salon Team of the Year.
