After a battle with autoimmunity in the early 1990s, Allison was not able to return to work in the chemical-filled environment of a standard salon. After much research and resourcing clean products, Chez Allison Organic Salon was born.

Don’t let the thought of a single-chair salon fool you! Chez Allison provides everything you would expect from a boutique salon, but in a quiet private oasis, with glorious views.

Highlights from Allison’s 35-year experience includes:

  • NYC-trained at Sahag Academy - dry hair cutting
  • Toronto’s Mirvish Productions - wigs and hairdresser for Royal Alexandra Theatre
  • Personal hairdresser to Michael Burgess - Man of La Mancha


Chez Allison Organic salon offers:

  • Organic hair care line from Italy - sulfate-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, cruelty-free
  • Ammonia-free colour from Denmark
  • Local, natural, vegan skin and body care
  • Tilting shampoo station with cervical support (nirvana)
  • A welcoming atmosphere for all genders and ages
“With your hair, body and well-being in mind, I invite you and your friends to experience the Chez Allison difference.”
~Allison Christie, Owner/Operator


Before finding Chez Allison I experienced anxiety around getting my hair done, but Allison’s nurturing energy dissolved that.  Be my hair long, short, undercut, balayaged or a special-occasion look, Allison has always delivered. I go out of my way to have my hair done in her wonderful, relaxing environment, and recommend you do, too!

I’ve been a client of Allison’s for years, for one reason only — Allison! Each appointment, she takes time to ask questions about my needs, wants and the direction we want to take my hair, which intimately reflects my own changing life, self image and emotions. She’s an exceptional stylist and colourist with an artistic eye, proving art and emotion go hand in hand when it comes to hair. I highly recommend Allison for any and all of your hairdressing needs.

I used to hate getting my hair cut, and now I look forward to it. Allison creates such a warm, welcoming, and peaceful environment for all her clients you might not even notice that you are in the hands of a truly skillful and talented professional. Through the last 20 years of varying degrees of balding and greying, she's always kept me looking good.

My husband and I have been exceptionally pleased with Chez Allison’s services, where top priority is her customers. She continually implements ways to make her guests feel important be it through the use of natural products, taking courses, suggesting new styles or offering a soothing cup of tea. While her COVID protocols make us feel very safe, getting our hair done in the “Beauty Dome” surrounded by beautiful gardens is truly a peaceful, relaxing and spa-like experience.
