“I Have been going to STANHOPE's  for a few years after being impressed with a co-workers consistently flattering haircuts. I love that Derek is willing to  style in different ways than the usual " Halifax Hair-duh" .if it is totally unsuitable for your face then he will discuss that and explain why and suggest modifications that would approximate the look you want but be more suitable, The fact that my hair has been complimented by total strangers in places like London,Vancouver  and New York ( no exaggeration! ) is a testament to his skill and talent. Because of the way Derek styles, my hair still looks good even months later. The staff camaraderie  and off the wall humour is  an additional perk.     J.G


       “ Simply the best. No attitude, great listening skills, solid advice, and very current for all ages. Very hip, but without the hipper-than-thou atmosphere in many salons in town. Derek, the owner, seems to have a gift for choosing a good team around him. Also, having lived in some cities where a basic cut and blow-dry can cost $150.00+, I find Derek's prices to be fantastic. If I could give six stars, I would.”   -  S.C



      “Stylists you can trust are like gold. When I moved to Halifax I tried a few stylists, one who ruined my cut and colour that took a year to grow out properly. Then fortunately I found Derek and his colour experts. Many cuts and colours later, I know I can trust anyone in the shop. And if you're not satisfied, go back because they can fix it. The atmosphere is fun, the shop is comfortable, clean and unpretentious.”      - M.A



     “ This is my favourite salon when in Halifax. The stylists are amazing!!”   -  T.B



   “ I searched years before I found Stanhope and company and have now been a faithful client for years! The atmosphere is bright and inviting, with a lovely waiting area where you can have coffee tea etc while you wait. They offer exceptional products, and are extremely entertaining and fun. I am constantly asked where I get my hair done.”       - K.F
