Q: What do my mother, two sisters, best friend, boyfriend and ex-boyfriend all have in common?

A: Besides being totes in love with me, they all rely on Sheldon (as do I) to transform them from shabby ragamuffins into well-groomed dream-boats (‘cept you, Mom. You’re always perfect). Sound familiar? That’s because, way back in August, I told you about Sheldon’s unassuming hair grotto, tucked away on a quiet street on Pine Ave. I gushed about the salon’s vintage décor, and of course, about Sheldon’s perfect cuts.

Sheldon, along with business partner and gal pal Freda, has recently opened La Belle Epoque, a gorgeous spacious new salon, smack dab on St Laurent. La Belle Époque is quickly becoming the toast of the Montreal hairdo scene (my favorite scene). Come for the décor, stay for a cut that’s both stunning to look at and easy to manage. In addition to Sheldon, la Belle Époque has found a gem in their new senior stylist, Josh Hodel, who brings along 10 years experience in the industry.

So stroll down the East side of St Laurent, below Mont Royal, and gaze through the big picture window:  you’ll see the hair wizard working his magic, surrounded by dark wood, antique mirrors, chandeliers and quirky bric a brac. Don’t be shy: pop in and book an appointment! Your hair will thank you.

Belle Époque – 4433 St Laurent. Call 514.544.2211 for an appointment.
