Danielle Humenick has always wanted to follow in her mother’s footsteps and be a hairdresser.
Now a married mother of two, Humenick opened up a local salon on April 3 — Danielle’s Salon, at 12-610 Second Ave. N.E. with accessibility for seniors, people with special needs and little children.
“They’re not given an opinion for a hairstyle. It’s ‘Here, cut their hair, be done,’” said Humenick, who is a co-partner in the business with her husband Shawn, the owner of Southland Roofing. “I don’t think that that’s fair to do and I would like everyone to have a fair chance with a proper hairstyle.”
The building has wheelchair access. She said she really enjoys working with seniors and people with special needs while offering reasonable prices.
“I think a lot of the other salons in Moose Jaw are more hyped into getting the newer looks on the young girls and whatnot and I’m trying to be one of the high end salons, but at the low end prices,” said Humenick. “I’m wishing that more salons in Moose Jaw could give people the look that they want for the affordable price.”
Humenick has been a hairdresser for 10 years, but has never owned a business before. When the place in the building came up for rent, she jumped at the chance.
Her salon offers full services, including manicures, pedicures and waxing.
