Our story

Continental Coiffure opened its doors in 1962 in downtown Montréal at Place Ville Marie. Beginning as a barber shop, catering to only men, it was the first place in Quebec to hire women- barbers.

In 1968 we decided to expand our business and provide hairstyling to both men and women. The first unisex hair salon in Montréal opened at 20/20 University.

As the 80’s approached and hair was becoming a part of personal style and beauty for women. Sensation coiffure opened at Place Alexis Nihon creating individual image for women only.

M. Aldo Lapolla, a barber at heart with a vision for creating, is the maker of our company. M. Lapolla believed in attracting a professional image and relying on a goal of excellence, committing to his clients and employees. He works close with them to achieve an enjoyable business of doing hair.
