"I first saw Leanne back in 2013 on a referral for a brow wax (which was amazing by the way - she is the queen of brow shaping!), I knew after that initial appointment that she was the type of skincare professional that I had been looking for. If you are looking for an esthetician with the knowledge and ability to improve your skin and boost your confidence, look no further! Leanne is professional, incredibly educated and provides targeted and individualized services that show results. I see her regularly for customized facials, which have improved the look and feel of my skin tenfold. Leanne has effectively treated pigmentation and blemishes on my skin to the point that I now feel comfortable without makeup. Through a series of chemical peels, she has evened out my complexion, reduced redness and instilled a glow in my skin that I've never seen before and that family and friends have been commenting on. Thanks to Leanne I have people complimenting my skin! I've visited many salons and high end spas searching for the perfect skincare specialist and I have found her at Alise Frederic. I'll never go elsewhere and I highly recommend Leanne to anyone looking to improve the look of their skin, begin a new skincare routine, or just to pamper themselves - your visit will be the highlight of your week! As a salon and spa, Alise Frederic is inviting and warm and all of the service providers are clearly committed to providing the highest quality services possible. Thanks Leanne and the AF team - you've made a positive impact in my life and have gained a client for life!!" - Kaylee M.
"I have been seeing Janelle for over a decade now. From university through marriage and children she has always understood my hair wishes, applied that to my hair type impeccably and guided me through changes. With my last baby I had quite drastic postpartum alopecia. She knowledgeably eased my worries and we worked towards short and long term hair goals so I could feel confident during the re growth process. I have now moved out of town and still drive in an hour and half to see her. I get compliments regularly from strangers on the way she does my blonde, it’s natural and cool, which she has adjusted for me since I’ve moved rurally and we have hard well water, which changes it’s tone. The salon is always cheerful and relaxing, and I look forward to my visits. Finding a stylist who cares about you, your hair challenges and dreams is not easy to find. I highly recommend Janelle and the salon in general to anyone!" - Laura M.
"I always receive professional, friendly service at Alise Frederic. Katie has been my stylist for the past three years. She always ensures I am happy with my cut, colour and style before I leave. She went out of her way to find a hair colour that works well on my fine hair and actually goes out to purchase it especially for me! My two sons see Katie for their haircuts and are always super happy with the results! Leanne has also offered me fantastic skincare advice when I am in the salon and has recommended some terrific skincare products for me! It's a very nice, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere at this nice little neighbourhood salon and spa! I'd recommend you try it!" - Gina S.
"I love Katie. She takes great care of my hair. I have never been disappointed when leaving. It's always a great job done. She has advice and gives me lots of ideas on how to take care of my hair." - Rose J.
"I've been seeing Leanne faithfully for 11 years now, almost to the day. The first time I met Leanne for my first ever appointment, I had my newborn son with me. In just a couple days he will be starting grade 6! Leanne is not only a fantastic esthetician, but she is just an all around fantastic person. She is one of the most genuine people I know. I am not sure how many clients she has, but she always knows whats going on with me in my personal life and I feel at every appointment we just pick up where we left off. She is a brilliant business woman - running a successful business AND balancing her personal life cannot be easy!" Karen M.
"I have only ever gone for Facials and waxes with Leanne, but this is the best place! Leanne does a great job with waxing my eyebrows (I would never trust anyone else!) and keeps my skin looking great with her awesome facials. The facials are always very relaxing, and I am always very sad when they are over. She will answer all skincare questions you have and is full of helpful tips to keep your skin happy and healthy! As for the rest of the salon, you are always greeted right away when you walk in, and are offered something to drink. They have a good range of products available for sale, and will place items on hold for you if you ask! Anytime I have needed to email them regarding an appointment or a product, they are very prompt in their response! Someone will always get back to you! I would highly recommend this place!" - Jessica E.
" When I make an appointment with Janelle or Leanne, I have a feeling of relief. The relief that you would get when booking a vacation. A mirage in the desert, that comes true when it comes closer. These ladies provide a service and an environment that is un-paralleled. They provide creative service that is beyond compare. It goes beyond the expected. When I leave the salon, I feel alive again; removed from the burden of everyday life. Janelle and Leanne make me feel girly and sexy – they elevate my mood, and heighten my senses. It is truly an experience that lasts… just long enough until the next time. Thank you Janelle and Leanne for allowing me to remember what it feels like to be treated like a princess; to be rejuvenated, and to go back into the world, refreshed... easy, breezy, beautiful. " - Cara R.
"Leanne is a wonderful esthetician! She is the first person that I have trusted to wax my eyebrows, after hearing raving reviews recommending her. She always takes her time, plucks any strays and fills them in when she is done. She is such a pleasant person and is always genuinely interested in our conversation. I have also seen her for facials and they are great! I always leave feeling relaxed, clean and refreshed. I highly recommend her to anyone!" - Leanne L.
"I first met with Janelle to discuss my wedding back in early 2011. Her sweet and easy-going personality was wonderful, but even more amazing was the hairstyle she created for me! I’d shown my inspiration pictures to several stylists, and Janelle was the ONLY one to shape the style into something that was even MORE beautiful, MORE romantic, and even more ME than the picture! Shortly after I got married I chopped off my long hair and colored it black. While this was ‘new’ territory for me (having had long, natural-colored hair all my life) Janelle has continued to impress me with her talent for styling – every visit ends with ‘Oh my god, I love it!" - Roberta R.
"To me Image Skincare products are an essential part of my everyday healthy lifestyle. After moving cities and having gone six months without using the product, my skin was in distress!! Image not only hydrates, it tightens, it smoothes, it lifts and it corrects. Image is a miracle for anyone who wants healthier, firmer, younger looking skin that glows. Using it again, after having gone so long without it, has been an eye-opening experience. When I moved and no longer had access to the line, I thought that any professional skincare regime would work as well. But nothing comes close to what Image Skincare does for my skin. What I thought could be replaced, is irreplaceable. My skin is at it's best potential when I am using this product line." - Darcie L.
"Leanne is professional, warm and caring. Her facials are to die for like a relaxing vacaction. My brows had been thin and uneven for years, within only a few services they were SO much better! Thanks Leanne! - Nicole D."
"Leanne Masse has been my skin care specialist for the past 6 years. Her guidance and genuine interest changed my non-existent skin care routine, to one that is tailored to my lifestyle and skin care needs. I have suffered from post-acne scaring for over 15 years. The scars made me very self conscious of my skin and I tried to camoflauge it with foundation. Today my scars have almost all disappeared. I now go out in public without any make-up on. Leanne is an honest, highly knowledgeable, and skilled dermatological expert who has made me confident in my own skin." - Anonymous
"Fefe always keeps my hair feeling healthy and looking great! I feel confident in asking her, her professional opinion for cuts, colours and treatments. Leanne's pedicure is amazing, she made me feel very relaxed and all of the other staff are very friendly and knowledgeable." - Signe N.
