Find Your Calm
Walking into The Seahorse Salon is like discovering a new land. A place where you immediately relax and find your poise. This is not a flashy, trendy place, full of noise and chaos. It’s an oasis where you’ll be welcomed with warmth, and treated to something special just for you.
Cut It, Colour It, Cure it
The Seahorse Salon was created out of founder Jenn Ghaney’s vision: A reprieve from the everything of everyday. A place where hustle and bustle is put on a shelf and peace and relaxation is applied like a balm. Our team is artistic, knowledgeable, and committed to our craft and your comfort. Our space is welcoming to all genders, ethnicities, abilities, and identities. We serve people, not bias.
When you leave The Seahorse Salon, you’ll feel rejuvenated and so will your hair. You’ll walk out with confidence, not just because you’ll look great, but because you’ll be fearless in taking care of your hair at home. Welcome to The Seahorse Salon.
Meet our The Seahorse Salon team, where the health of your hair is our commitment and where luxury is applied generously. Our team is part of the Dresscode Project, an alliance of salons providing safe spaces without judgement for the queer community.

Milly trained at the Aveda Institute in Victoria, BC, took her first Devacurl class in Halifax in 2015 and she's been hooked on curls ever since. Milly is the Seahorse's newest curly hair specialist, but she loves working with all hair types.
Milly’s artistic talent spills over into her small jewelry line, St.Victoria, for which she incorporates local wildflowers into her beautiful designs.
Milly says, "Whether it's a big change, new bangs, or seeing their natural texture for the first time in years, there is nothing better than helping make someone feel their best."

Jamie is an actor and writer from St. John’s, who works both in theatre and film - as well as at The Seahorse, where she kicks it as a Salon Coordinator part-time.
She has always been passionate about this industry and finds inspiration daily in the creative energy at play in our salon. Most importantly, Jamie is dedicated to helping clients love who they are and stylists love what they do.
Jody Lear is one of our Salon Coordinators by day, and a Disco Diva by night! Beginning at the Seahorse Salon as a client, Jody quickly became passionate about curls and hair health.
She is always happy to help with any questions you might have about products, appointments, and all things "Seahorse!" When she's not at the front desk of the salon, you'll find her on stage with funk band Cabot Power, or singing golden oldies with acapella group The Boogie Babes!
At just five years of age, Monte is often the first face you see upon entering the Seahorse. After he sniffs out your purse or pockets for treats, he retreats back to his little bed for his 500th nap of the day. Even his curly mop is styled just for you!
He is a Standard Poodle and hypoallergenic to most people, be sure to let us know in advance if his attendance will bring an unwanted tear to your eye.
The experience was so educational as well as relaxing. I LOVE that there are a ton of cruelty free/vegan products! My stylist was so friendly and inviting and made me feel right at home. I can’t wait to come back! I honestly can’t recommend this place enough!
