Recommended | Berns & Black Salon...
A few months have passed since the grand opening of Winnipeg's greenest, eco-friendly salon, Berns & Black located at 468 Main Street (in the old Birt Saddlery building - Main and Bannatyne)... it has now become my salon destination of choice. ;)
Check out this video (taken before the grand opening) I came across on Youtube...
A number of factors influenced my decision... but, mainly, it's conveniently located in the Exchange District (within walking distance from Circle), it's dedicated to being eco-friendly(+) – plus, the staff, service, product selection (and decor) is second to none.
On my most recent visit, I took the opportunity to take a few quick pics... my apologies as they really don't do the space justice.
The decor is very cool IMO...
Hanging on one of the walls was this shadow-box display, housing authentic tools from Anthony Berns Barbershop (c.1951). :D
Berns & Black offers salon and spa services (including straight razor shaves for men)... I highly recommend that you check it out! If you're looking for a new stylist, ask for Kitty... you won't be disappointed (tell her I sent 'ya).
You can read more about Berns & Black online via the Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Sun, here and here.
Berns & Black is open at 9:00 am Monday thru Saturday (closing hours vary), walk-ins are welcome, but pre-booking is recommended. For more information, or to book an appointment call (204) 944 8454.
