When you work in the service industry and your business has been operating for over a quarter century in the same location, you know that you’ve been doing something right! That is exactly how Laurie Jones of Laurie Jones and Company Hair Designers feels.
Located at 165 Sherbrooke St Unit 2 across from Larry Electric, Laurie established her business in its current location in 1986 and has never looked back. The shop has a staff of four very dedicated women (Marilyn Huggins, Charmaine O’Brien, Laurie "Parker" Roberts and Laurie Jones herself) who are all born and raised Peterborough girls!
They all have many years of experience in the business and enjoy coming to work in downtown Peterborough each and every day that the shop is open. Being a smaller venue, the ladies have built up a large clientele through their connections with family and in our community.
They’ve known all along that with great service and results come word of mouth sales for them, which is why they have excelled at what they do for so long. Laurie Jones and Company is a salon that focuses on people from the neck up! They offer haircuts, colouring jobs, washes, perms and even deal with some facial waxing. They happily cater to both men and women, from seniors to children experiencing their first haircuts.
On site, they use and sell some large name professional products such as Redken, L’Oreal and Schwarzkopf to name a few. As mentioned, all the women love what they do, and they are happy to have stayed in their smaller location downtown. For them and their customers alike, it offers convenience in its placement, and a great atmosphere on the block they’re on and towards the downtown core which is all within walking distance.
With 27 years experience as a shop, the ladies have seen a lot of change around them. They’re happy to be a constant in the community and invite you to book a time for your next hair appointment.
Their hours are as follows:
Tuesday and Thursday: 9:00am-7:00pm
Wednesday and Friday: 9:00am-5:00pm
