End of an Era

It is with a tremendous amount of sadness that I write this letter. After 5 years of serving the Victoria area DM & Company will be closing its doors on January 31, 2018.

Whenever a business closes, there is always much speculation as to what went wrong. The staff and I feel it is important for all of you to understand the circumstances under which this decision was made. With the ever increasing costs of being a “downtown salon” our business model is not sustainable for this location. It’s simply a numbers game.

Over the past 5 years, DM & Company has maintained an excellent reputation in the community for outstanding and reliable service. Our wish is for the reputation to remain intact after the salon is gone.

We have had the pleasure of working with some of the most amazing and talented stylists in the area. They have not only been co-workers, but the best of friends as well. The DM & Company staff have always acted as a TEAM in every sense of the word. I have seen new stylists blossom into true professionals under the guidance and education of the more experienced team members and witnessed the most outstanding customer service possible by everyone on this team.

What happens now? Your stylist will be contacting you with their new contact information. As they find their new salons, we will be posting their contact information on the DM & Company FaceBook page and on our website dmandcompany.ca in hopes of making this transition as easy as possible for all of us.

Everyone will continue working their regularly scheduled hours through the Christmas season and up to January 31.

Thank you again for all of your support and friendship. We’ve had many, many good laughs over the years and shared the best memories.

We’re Going Green!

Hey everyone!

We are excited to announce that as of November 1st we are taking part in a new recycling program called Green Circle Salons!

The Green Circle Salon program will collect all of the materials we don’t currently have solutions for such as: colour waste, hair, foils, colour tubes, aerosol and food/drink cans, gloves, batteries, bulbs, e-waste and more. The total amount now being diverted from landfill will equal 90-95% of  our salon’s waste.

Here is a link to a CTV article about the program.

We are so exited to be on board and support our environment! You may notice a small increase in the price of your services to accommodate this new program. Services that will NOT be affected are: kids cuts, bang trims, blow-drys and up-do’s.

Thank you for going green with us!

Cut-A-Thon Event!‏

Hi Everyone!

We have an amazing Cut-A-Thon event happening Sunday May 1st that we wanted to share with you; we are fighting for Autism awareness!

Sofia made a video for you to help explain what Autism is and why we are raising money for the Association for Science in Autism Treatment.

This event is very near and dear to our hearts as several of our stylists have family members in the Autism spectrum.

Please share this event with your friends and we hope to see you there!
