Sophie Tessier, owner of La Rousse Espace Beauté, a high-end hair salon on St-Laurent Boulevard favoured by some Quebec celebrities, has more than creative flair: she’s also an excellent businesswoman.
As evidence, her La Rousse Mobile, which has been travelling through Quebec for over a year, is a resounding success. Inspired by the craze for foodtrucks, this mobile beauty salon inside a chrome-finished trailer offers express services for women: hairstyling, manicure and makeup, à la carte or in packages. La Rousse Mobile can be hired for private events such as birthdays, weddings, bachelorette parties, proms and corporate events (festivals, launch events, etc.)
With its immaculate white decor and its five-star service, La Rousse Mobile has an elegant atmosphere that is miles away from the watered-down image of the common trailer: “I wanted to reinvent the concept of the beauty salon to offer an innovative well-being experience in a modern and one-of-a-kind place,” explains Tessier, who has just been selected as one of the five finalists in the 2017 Contessa Canadian Hairstylist of the Year, a competition to honour the best in the business.
An ambassador of Revlon Professional products, Sophie Tessier exclusively uses this line’s brands: Revlon Professional, Style Masters, American Crew, CND and Vinylux, for a simple style or for a private event.
Reservations should be made one year in advance for this service. Visit the La Rousse Mobile’s website now to book your appointment!
