Owner Mary Lou brings with her 32 years of barbering experience. She followed her husband’s career with the Canadian Forces and has had the privilege of barbering in many shops from coast to coast. Mary Lou has worked with and trained some very talented barbers over the years. She became a barbershop owner herself for the first time, in May of 2000 while living in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
After her husband retired from the military, they returned home to PEI, where Mary Lou established Stratford’s Own Barber Shop in 2012 and is very proud of the team she has behind her today.
Mary Lou lives in Charlottetown with her husband and their dog. She enjoys doing anything creative, walking, listening to music and spending time with her family and friends.
