You will feel enveloped in cosy warmth from the first moment you enter The Beauty Parlour. When you want time away from your hustle and bustle, even if it’s just for the time it takes for a hair cut and colour, The Beauty Parlour should be your destination of choice.

Located in the historic and picturesque town of Almonte, The Beauty Parlour has the look and feel of a private spa. From the minute you enter until the second you step out onto the street rejuvenated and looking like a million bucks, you can relax and trust in our abilities.

Darlene Richardson (nee Brown) has more than three decades of experience in the hair industry. In addition to exceptional hair cutting and styling, Darlene organized platform and runway hair shows for companies like Goldwell Hair Products. Darlene also spent many years as an educator for hair product companies like Joico and Goldwell, teaching other stylists about the science behind hair, products and colouring.

A self-professed “colour nerd”, Darlene enjoys learning about the chemistry of the products and the composition of hair from a scientific standpoint, allowing her to provide the right product to every client who walks through the door.

All though it may seem odd for a hairstylist to promote head-shaving, Darlene has also organized such fundraisers for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and the Canadian Cancer Society.

Darlene is a member of the Ontario College of Trades.
