Master Barber / Master Stylist / Owner / Serial Entrepeneur
Chere is a 2nd generation barber and has been a licensed professional for more than 30 years. As a young child, Chere would sit and watch her father for hours, asking questions and learning the business first hand. At age 12 her father put her to work doing the tasks that were required to run a business. Needless to say, this ingrained a sense of business, entrepeneurship, and integrity into a young girl. Knowing from early childhood that this was her future, she went to barber school straight out of high school. Since attending school over 30 years ago she has been privileged to attend many advanced education and hands on courses to keep her skills honed and current.
Through the years Chere has become a successful serial entrepeneur. She has owned and operated numerous businesses including 4 salons. She owned and operated Strata Salon for almost 12 years before selling it in early 2012. Chere spent two years helping design, build and operate La Rive, Northern Quest Casino Resort's spa and salon. Her many years as a stylist and her roots in the men's barber industry have instilled a desire to create an environment that is comfortable and private for both men and women.
Craig 'Alexander York' Perrigo
Junior Barber / Junior Stylist
This apple doesn't fall too far from the tree...either of them. Craig is the third generation in this family owned and operated business. He is the middle child and Chere's only son. Chere was very excited when Craig announced he would be attending cosmetology school to follow in his mother and grandfather's footsteps. Now she is very proud to have him working by her side. As Chere did as a child, he too has been watching and learning the ways of old school barbering and women's hair cutting for years. His schooling combined with new and advanced techniques and ongoing education makes him the perfect namesake for this family endeavor.
