Shine! 2016 Spotlight – High Fidelity Hair

Shine 2016 – an extravaganza of fashion, music and dance – will be hitting the stage at the Commodore Ballroom on September 10th . This wonderful evening is made possible by hundreds of individuals who are rallying together for mental health. Communities helping communities!

Every single person and every single business involved is volunteering their time and services. Because of their generosity, Shine! will be able to donate 100% of every dollar raised through ticket sales and donations directly to the evenings recipients - Canadian Mental Health Association and The Lions Gate Hospital HOpe Centre.

As a thank-you, we will be highlighting some of the wonderful people and businesses who are working hard to make this evening the best it can be. Today's interview is with Marlo Moore of High Fidelity Hair, one of 14 salons participating in SHINE!

Please share a bit about (salon) - when was it opened, what is the salon's approach/philosophy?

We have a diverse, fun, fresh and friendly salon environment that keeps our clients coming back for more! As creative colour specialists, we love to push the boundaries and create new trends.

Please share about your journey to open this salon. If you have an interesting or funny story about the process we'd love to hear it.

Once part of a franchise system, in May 2013 co-owners Marlo and Jarod Moore decided it was time for their Commercial Drive salon to say "out with the old, and in with the new". Voila! High Fidelity Hair was born.
