Turbine by Lisa Drader-Murphy

We were poking about the neighborhood here at Bishops Landing and found this fantastic store named Turbine. Owned and operated by Canadian designer Lisa Drader-Murphy, her clothes and accessories are fabulous! I am so jealous she doesn't have a shop in Newfoundland :) To my surprise the lovely store clerk (yet another expat) told me that they sell most everything online including Dale's new dress!

Our fashion model Dale (tee hee hee)is also wearing my favorite accessory from Turbine the AMAZING Obi Belts:

Introducing Hair Factory Halifax - Bishops Landing

It is with great excitement that I share in the announcement of the opening of Hair Factory's third location - Hair Factory Bishops Landing in Halifax. I am here in Halifax until Friday, and we've already had an exciting first day! The location is just beautiful, directly off the boardwalk that wraps around the harbour! I love our small team of incredibly sweet and super talented stylists. Kat Collicutt, Nicole McNeil and Meaghan McIntyre are the newest members of the Hair Factory team, coming to us from Montreal and the Maritimes. Some of you might already know Judy MacDonald and Cam Patey from our NL location and they have moved to Halifax to style this city up!

Welcome to the Hair Factory Academy

At the Hair Factory we expect only the highest standards from our stylists.  That is why each new stylist that joins our team becomes part of our Hair Factory Academy.  This 1 to 2 year program enables each student to gain complete confidence in working with hair before they take their first client. Whether it's business building or client care exercises, our students gain valuable knowledge for their careers.  

Each week we work through technically based cutting and coloring skills on actual models.  If you would like to be a hair model for a complimentary haircut or color, simply email me at jennghaneystylist at with your details.  All of our students have completed a local hair school program and have a basic knowledge of hair design.  All their finished work is checked over by a professional hair stylist, ensuring that you are completely satisfied.  It's a lot of fun and you are supporting someone's educational experience! 

Salon International in London

This October I had the total delight of visiting the famous Salon International in London, England. It is one of the biggest (if not the biggest!) hair show in the world. With over 300 booths, and some of the top hairdressers in the world, I was in my glee!

As shown at Salon International, this autumn/winter season brings the early 1940's back into the limelight. Men's and women's hairstyles are reminiscent of early war era, think Victory rolls, pin curls and glamour!  I can hardly wait to do New Years Eve styles!

You can view all this and more in this short video I took of the show:
