Meanwhile, up on the second level of the Barrington Place Shops, (in another former home of Mr. Romance), new salon Reaction Hair Studio is ready to make you feel pretty. The salon, which opened two weeks ago, is co-owned by Ray Kerr (husband of Margaret Ann---see above), and hairstylist Debra Hallett. Hallett’s been doing Kerr’s hair for years. “She’s a fantastic hairstylist,” he promises. So fantastic, in fact, that Kerr wanted to help Hallett start her own business. Kerr and Hallett named the salon “Reaction” to express the idea of “moving forward” and “reacting to the marketplace,” says Kerr. To that end, Reaction’s staff plan to continually research new techniques in hair design and colouring, and adapt their styling accordingly. Or, as Hallett put it in the salon’s press release, stylists will “help in creating new hair ideas, without disregarding the classics.” Watch for products from Redken, Joico, and American Crew, and TIGI’s “funky” Bed Head line. Give Reaction a call at 406-9400.)
