The Shampoo Story

We opened Shampoo Hair Bar’s doors in July 2006 in Victoria, BC. Inside, you’ll find a fun and fashionable — yet inviting and unpretentious — salon. 


Shampoos Ownership Team at Victoria's best hair salon

How we met

Back in ‘96, our three founders, Jen, Dylan and Laurie, met for the first time. Laurie was Jens stylist at the time, and inspired Jen to get into the industry herself. Over the next few years, Jen and Laurie worked together, and dreamed about what owning their own salon would be like. It took a while, but after a decade of friendship, Jen convinced Laurie that they needed to make their dreams a reality.

With Laurie behind the chair, Jen managing the salon, and Dylan on the books, Shampoo Hair Bar took off. The salon hasn’t stopped growing since, and now has two locations in beautiful Victoria offering a full range of services.

Why We're One Of Victoria's Best Hair Salons

Shampoo Hair Bar is a salon founded by friends and family, and those are the relationships we seek to build 15 years later. 

Our Shampfam strives to make everyone who walks through our doors feel at home.  What our team of highly trained stylists really want is to make you look and feel good, and have a great time doing it. 

We're here to foster a culture of inspired creativity through extensive education and a supportive team-focused environment.  We love to see our team members succeed in both career and personal goals. We hope you'll feel how happy and passionate our team members are. And leave your appointments feeling inspired, excited, and beautiful.

A Gender Neutral Hair Salon

Gender-neutral pricing is based on the hair treatments, stylists you choose, and how much time you spend in the salon - not your gender. A more traditional salon will set prices for haircuts and style services for men and women. A Unisex hair salon is a more inclusive salon model we’ve adapted as our pricing structure. We want to provide a space where everyone feels comfortable and welcome.
