About Us

Stanhope & Company, an innovative hair salon established in January 2000, is located just steps off Spring Garden Road at 1455 Brenton Street in downtown Halifax.

Master stylist, Derek Stanhope, owner/operator, was first trained as a free-hand hair cutter by Dante Di Mattia, Halifax’s first celebrity stylist.  Throughout the years, Derek has continued his training with world- renowned professionals such as Vidal Sasson and Toni and Guy, to name a few, and has since become a celebrity stylist in his own rite.

In 1995, Derek paired up with master colourist Sheila Millard.  This partnership allows both to solely focus on their true artistry — Sheila with colour, Derek with the art of cutting and styling.  Working together, both stylists offer the client perfection in separate disciplines that would take a lifetime for one person to master.

Derek, has created an environment where stylists can grow to become true artists unto themselves.  Stanhope & Company offers a lot of personality in a relaxed, comfortable environment where stylist and client can strive for perfection without pretension.
