this is me and my work

Have established very careful protocols

I've been coming to the Lounge for more than ten years to have my hair cut and styled. I work in the film and TV industry so the quality of my hair style is really important. I have used Lance, who was great, and for the past few years I've used Caroline, who I adore. Both of them are smart, interesting and great stylists. Since re-opening, the owners Lance and Martin have established very careful protocols: taking temperature, insisting on hand sanitizer, everyone --customers and stylists -- wears masks, and for cuts no washing or blowdrying. It feels very safe without feeling weird or sterile. I'd recommend the Lounge to anyone -- great place, great people, great stylin'!

NEVER going anywhere else!

After 10 years+ of visiting Lance Blanchette at The Lounge every 4 weeks religiously for a cut, color + styling including the odd blow dry, I am now, on Lance's guidance, in the process of letting my hair grow to its natural grey. Yes! I'm there! You would be AMAZED to see how gracefully he is allowing me to go from blonde to grey and how fabulous my hair looks - no ugly lines between new and old but an amazingly smooth transition of multiple highlights! That is what a true professional hairdresser can do for us. And the bonus is that Lance is not the only one at that studio with that depth of knowledge and expertise. I am NEVER going anywhere else!
