1. Can I book an appointment online?
We are always available through [email protected]pommesalon.ca or by calling the salon at 250.762.0050. Pomme Salon takes great pride in our work, and each appointment is customized for the client, making it difficult to integrate an online booking system. We work our hardest to ensure quick and prompt bookings via email bookings and phone!
2. Why do you require a $75 deposit for first time clients ?
The Pomme Squad values each and every client and their time. Due to a high volume of cancellations and no shows, we require a non refundable $75 deposit for all first time clients. The full deposit is deducted from your bill at the end of your appointment . IF an appointment is cancelled 48 hours or more before the scheduled visit, a full refund of the $75 will be applied. **Exceptions to this rule are at the discretion of management. This deposit ensures that appointment times will be taken seriously by both the client and squad member!
3. What do the different levels of stylist mean ?
We have a range of stylists and levels at Pomme salon to meet the needs of a wide range of clients! If you are on a budget or looking to support a fresh new stylists, we recommend booking with a NEW TALENT or JUNIOR stylists. These stylists have trained under senior management for a minimum of three months post graduating school, and have participated in extensive continued education. You can expect your appointment times to be longer (give them a break they are new!) but you will still receive the same great Pomme Salon service you would expect! A Senior or Master stylist at Pomme has been with the company for a minimum of two years and completed extensive training both in salon and in the field. You can expect top service, expert advice and a cut and colour you are thrilled with. Pricing varies depending on the stylist and we welcome FREE consultations!
4. Why don’t you give quotes over the phone?
Each person has different needs, and we don’t expect you to know what exactly needs to be done to your hair! What a client may consider ‘roots’ may actually involve an entire head of highlight touch up. We do not want to under or over quote and the best thing to do is to come for a FREE consultation if you are looking for a detailed cost breakdown, which we will be happy to give you!

It helps to reinforce the inside of the hair and keep it stronger and healthier! Smartbond is EXCLUSIVE to L’Oreal Professionnel products and we include it in the price of all of our lightning services to ensure the highest quality service to our Pommeshells!

We are happy to confirm that the L’Oréal group of companies, which includes Lancôme, Redken, Garnier, Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Biotherm, Kérastase, purology, shu umura, and Vichy, as well as L’Oréal, has carried out no animal testing since 1989 on the entire range of its products. This decision was undertaken within the framework of our fundamental objectives: to offer innovative products of high quality while ensuring their safety in use by our customers. For information about the significant efforts deployed by our laboratories over a period of 25 years to develop alternative methods to animal testing, as well as our very important achievements in this field, please consult our website at https://www.loreal.ca.
2. Do you have any Natural products?
We are happy to have a different range within our lines that are almost 100% natural! If a product is 100% natural it would become mouldy very quickly, and you would not see the performance of the natural products work! Each of our natural lines contain a maximum of 20% non-natural products (but that doesn’t mean they are bad for you!). The products within our natural ranges that are considered ‘non-natural’ are simply what are preserving the natural ingredients so you can keep them on your shelf. They are also ACTIVATING the natural ingredients so they can properly absorb into the hair and work their magic! The L’Oreal Professionnel : SOURCE line uses coconut oil as its lathering agent and has shampoo and condtioners up to 99% all natural!
3. Why do I get charged a $1.50 green circle fee on my bill?
We are VERY proud to be a Green Circle partner salon! We recycle about 97% of our waste, reducing our carbon footprint dramastically! We recycle our colour, our foil, plastic, aerosols, and even our HAIR! Did you know that a lot of the oil spills use human hair from Green Circle partner salons to soak up the oils in the ocean! We thank you for your contribution and this helps to cover the cost of our initiative to reduce salon waste!

5. Why don’t you give quotes over the phone?
The Pomme Squad works hard to be as transparent as possible when it comes to pricing, and it can be difficult to really understand what is going on within the hair without seeing it in person. If a colour correction, or extra steps are required it may mean additional costs! We are more than happy to provide a FREE consultation. We are happy to give a starting point of pricing.
