Our Space
The foundation of our salon design aesthetic is a combination of bespoke style and simplicity. Being as Eco-friendly with our choices as possible was a priority in renovating the space in this 110-year-old Main Street building. Our windows saturate our space with natural light, which includes many re-purposed furnishing. The atmosphere is both upbeat and relaxing, giving you place to escape the “hustle and bustle” of everyday life — at least for a while!
