One of the best ways to feel refreshed on any weekend getaway is to get your hair cut and styled. In Montréal, Salon Belle Époque is a classy choice for sophisticated ladies and gentlemen.
Since it’s inception in November, Salon Belle Époque has immediately become a ‘stylistic institution’ in Montréal. Why? Because of Sheldon Gerbrandt, a hesitant Montréal icon. Sheldon self-identifies as an anti-socialite who has tried every Montréal scene. He has his finger on the stylistic pulse of the city, understanding current trends, and how they can be translated into fabulous hair.
Along with his adorable business partner Freida, Sheldon is redefining what the salon experience can be.
“We wanted something different, more old school, not a ‘hair-factory.’ We wanted a returning to the Belle Époque, the ‘beautiful era’ – whether you’re 20, 40, 60… whatever age you are, it’s time to take advantage of looking and feeling your best.”
Check out the video to meet Mr. Sheldon, and to see where he thinks the best place would be to rock your new hair…
Salon Belle Époque
4433 Boulevard Saint Laurent
What to Do: A visit to the Contemporary Art Museum would look great with that new haircut. Or simply pop your head into the funky shops on Boulevard Saint Laurent (between Sherbrooke and Ave des Pins) to find a new smashing outfit.
Where to Stay: If ‘classy’ is the theme for your haircut and your weekend, I suggest booking a room at the Opus Hotel (corner of Sherbrooke and Saint Laurent) – modern design with a nod to history in chic Montreal style.
