You can make an appointment by phone, email, or book online. The easiest way to secure future appointments is to book after your completed service before leaving the salon.
Where do I park?
The driveway of 55 Hillcrest Drive is dedicated Salon parking on the right hand side. There is also free parking on the street, if needed.
Can I walk right in?
Yes, please, let yourself in, but the door is a wee bit sticky, so push hard.
What can I bring into the Salon with me?
You are now able to bring your personal belongings into the Salon with you. Remember to have your calendar for booking your next appointment.

After three years of outdoor service, Chez Allison has decided to no longer offer this option.

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!
Julia, Vice President of Marketing
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.
