- What does it mean to be a Green Circle Salon & how is my eco fee used?+
We’ve partnered with Green Circle Salon Group, a company dedicated to helping the Salon and Spa industry reduce waste and the its impact on the planet. Through this partnership Zazou takes proud in the ability to recycle 98% of it’s waste. Not only does Green Circle recycle all of our paper and plastic, they also recycle items the municipality won’t accept. Stuff like our foils, colour tubes – even the little plastic lids on the colour tubes, any waste chemicals that doesn’t make it onto your head, and you guessed it – your hair will be used to make hair mats and booms to aid in the clean-up of oil spills, an even greater step to aid our planet.
Your eco fee helps support our ability to keep our waste to 2% which helps limit everyone’s impact on the planet.

Before coming in for your event styling service we do ask that you wash your hair the day before and arrive for your appointment with clean dry hair.

- Do you offer children’s pricing? +
No, our prices are the same for children and adults. We offer the same time, care and service experience for both children and adults.
- Is colour safe for pregnancy?+
Colour will be fine if you are pregnant, however, if you feel uncomfortable with it we do suggest that you have highlights done instead of a solid colour. This is because a solid colour is applied directly to your scalp, highlights are foiled into the hair away from the scalp. We do use La Biosthetique colour which is 92% naturally derived, and has the lowest amount of ammonia content compared to any other colour product on the market. However, if you are at all uncomfortable we recommend speaking with your family doctor before scheduling an appointment.
- Should I arrive early for my appointment? +
We do ask that you arrive at least 5 minutes early for your appointment in order to fill out any necessary forms and to have a chance to peruse our latest products before your service. This also helps to ensure that you receive all the time you have scheduled for your service. Should you arrive late for your service, we may not be able to complete your full service.
- Do we do hair extensions? +
Yes, we do Great Lengths bonded hair extensions, EasiHairPro Tape-ins, Global Hair Clip-ins, and i-Tip hair extensions. We use the best quality Remy hair for the extensions. Before booking, you must come in for an extension consultation with a recommended extension technician to establish what you would like to have done, how long it will take, and cost. We do extension removals as well. See Hair Extensions.
- Where do I park?+
Lynn Valley: We have free underground parking at Mountain Highway and Ross Road.
Lonsdale: Restricted street parking up to 2 hours is available on 18th or 19th and Lonsdale. 1 hour restricted parking is available on Lonsdale. Unrestricted street parking is available on Chesterfield or St. Georges from 18th up. Unrestricted parking is available on the north side of 20th and Lonsdale.
- Do you guarantee your products and services? +
Yes, we guarantee our products and services 100%. If you are unsatisfied with your salon service, we guarantee a complimentary redo if you call within 14 days of your initial service. We then book you in for a redo with your stylist. If you have changed your mind about your haircut style or colour originally requested and agreed upon than we would book you in for another chargeable hair service. We cannot guarantee colour services from fading if you do not use professional haircare products due to the fact that non-professional hair products have the potential to strip your hair colour. This is why our stylists will always recommend a professional salon haircare product because it will help preserve your colour. For hair products, we do guarantee satisfaction. You may return them for store credit or exchange within 2 weeks of original purchase and the bottle must be half full or more. Hot tools (hair straighteners and blowdryers) are guaranteed at Zazou within a month of purchase. After one month the warranty goes to the manufacturer for the first year of use.
- Do you do make up applications? +
Currently we are not offering make up applications due to COViD Safety Protocols. We hope to start re-introducing this service come the holiday season.
In normal times we do offer make up applications with our Belevance La Biosthetique biomimetic make up for the skin. Make up applications range in price from $55-$75. We would also offer a complimentary make up touch up at the end of every service that includes blush and lip gloss. Please note, make up appointments require advance notice as we schedule our make up artist based on demand.
- Am I able to schedule my appointment with a student in the Academy? +
