They serve 3,000 regular customers annually. Some come in once a year while others visit monthly or more. All customers have a shared need. Quite simply, their hair grows and when it does they come to Salon Hugo.
I do too. I have dirty blonde hair that has been thinning for years. What remains is fine and when it overgrows I sport clown tufts on either side of my head. Salon Hugo has been my barbershop for over five years. It is located in the village of St. Jovite, Quebec in the Mont Tremblant area.
The first time I visited this quaint yet progressive barbershop, I had my hair cut by Hugo’s father. Little did I know that this gentleman had retired after 38 years of cutting hair but still came in one day a week to service longstanding clients.
I arrived on a Friday when the salon is closed to regular traffic. Ignorantly I entered and sat down while he finished with a regular client. He was kind enough to take me that day and politely explained the situation. From then on I have had my hair cut by either Hugo or Yan. They have a friendly rivalry over my diminishing locks. Both do a great job.
