April Carriere

Hi there, my name’s April and I’m a co-owner of the Sapphire. I’ve been doing hair for 21 YEARS!!


I can’t even believe it. I love how this job creates friendships and becomes a family. Both with clients and staff. Everything changes over time, but you can always learn something new and grow in this industry, it allows you to be as creative as you want and I love when you have people that trust you enough to play with something as precious as their hair. Whether that’s just a fun style or a crazy new colour or perm!

A little about me…. I love to travel, my Partner and I love to experience new places, I love camping and hiking and just being outdoors, but I also love just hanging out watching movies with my dog and cat or cooking a great meal. (or ordering one) Lol! I love going to see a local band or comedy show. Winnipeg is so great, because there’s always something happening in one of our little venues.

The Sapphire has been a dream come true for me. I couldn’t imagine my life without this wonderful little retro haven or the people who we share it with, including my amazing business partner Kelly.

I have no idea what’s in the future for our little space, but I have no doubt that it will be incredible.
