Roxi Salon

In the weeks leading up to our Launch Party, we’ll be featuring some of our local friends who will be taking part. This week is all about hair, and we’re featuring Cream Hair & Makeup Lounge, Loyal Hair Therapy, and Roxi Salon. Owner Roxanne Mentanko and I had a moment yesterday between busy schedules to chat about how Roxi came about.

Roxi (owner, not salon) has been cutting hair for the better part of two decades. Starting is Saskatoon, Roxi built her skills and experience in Alberta for about 15 years, slowly edging her way to the Awesome Okanagan. Family, weather brought her here and she worked a bit before opening Roxi Salon, but the option to “take the next step and do it” was too overwhelming and Salon Owner she became. That was nearly four years ago now.

It only takes a moment inside and the stylists speak to Roxi’s (salon, not owner) mission statement. Fun and education. “Bumble’s our best selling, it’s our favorite. Three of our stylists when they came over from other salons were begging for it because they love it so much.” Besides Bumble and bumble, Roxi Salon also carries a torch for Redken. “There’s a lot of science that goes behind it, it’s tried, tested and true.” Roxi Salon believes in the products they carry, they love to use them themselves.

When asked what’s important to them Roxanne doesn’t hesitate, “we believe in giving very individual attention. Attention to a really good consultation and getting everyone up with the tools and the products and the know how.” She ads, “it’s amazing how many people don’t know how to do it at home because their stylist didn’t bother telling them. You should be able to.”

The stylists inside agree. Ad in a position in downtown Kelowna (“I love working downtown,” raves stylist Jocelyn Pietrasz, “the lunch breaks are great!”) and a great team (“super casual, super friendly, there’s not a pretentious bone in any of our bodies.”). But don’t take our word for it, head into Roxi Salon located 102-1630 Pandosy Street, downtown Kelowna.
