She believed she could, so she did!
Born and raised in the Elk Valley, Melody Leduc, owner of Red Raine Hair Studio, moved from her home-based salon to her new studio location at 418 Boivin Road on June.17 2017. Melody’s love for her community and passion in hair and beauty started the dream of opening a salon in a commercial space. A favorite quote “She believed she could, so she did” on a sign which hangs proudly in her salon gave Melody the courage and inspiration to take the next big step.
Red Raine Hair Studio started out in 2015, with her clientele and services rapidly growing in just two years, Melody was able to take over Doreen Scott’s commercial property on Boivin Road and open Red Raine Hair Studio. Doreen was happy another Elkford born and raised resident and stylist was taking over this great location and continuing to offer salon quality services to the community.
With hard work and support from the community, Melody was able to grow her services in town, offering hair styling and treatments, makeup artistry, waxing, in house tanning studio, manicures and pedicures and so much more. This great location offers so many services and outstanding customer care that clientele come in to Red Raine from Calgary, Crowsnest Pass and around the East Kootenay region. The salon has grown to three staff including Ashley Dortman and Trinitte Kowalyk. When asked how operating a business in a “shift town” is for her business, Melody replied “our days are always booked up each day and business is thriving.” Having a customer service driven business in the Elk Valley has opened opportunities for Melody and her staff to work various shifts that work for their families as well clients in Elkford.
