Why Supernova?

Supernova Salon is located in the heart of Lower Lonsdale. The vibrant new face of Lower Lonsdale, known as “LoLo”, is young, fresh and filled with energy. We are a 5 minute walk from the Seabus Terminal at Lonsdale Quay market.


The salon is a boutique studio filled with natural light, comfy seating, and a fantastic group of motivated, warm and fun stylists dedicated to perfecting their craft. The salon is a pleasure to be in. The service is professional and friendly and the products are of the highest quality. Our magazines, music and coffee and tea selection are alway fresh.


The salon team is award winning. A few times each year we like to use our collective creativity to compete in photographic hairdressing competitions. We are consistently in the finalist list in the Canadian Hairdressing “Mirror Awards” and Salon Magazine’s “Contessa Awards“. Supernova Salon is also highly sought after for hair colouring and continuity work for the Vancouver film industry. Most recently Robert Pattinson and Kellan Lutz (as well as a few more Twilight stars) were at Supernova for hair colour while filming the latest Twilight film.


Supernova’s roots are in education and we are proud to play a role in encouraging and mentoring hairdressing graduates through an apprentice program that helps get them started in their careers. Through continuing education, we as a group get stronger. Two of our stylists are platform artists and industry educators for top international hairdressing companies Wella and Sebastian.

Our goal is simple: Love Your Hair!
