CORNWALL, Ontario – A new modern beauty facility is now open for business in the Cornwall area and is accepting new clients.

Cleverly indicated in the salon’s name, Salon on Second recently opened its doors at 909 Second Street West.

After being in the salon industry for ten years, owner Sarah Proulx, gathered the invaluable experience she gained as a professional stylist and decided to pursue entrepreneurship.

“My vision is to create an atmosphere where people can look forward to coming and returning to a team of professionals, eager to make you look and feel great”, said Proulx. “In fact, we are more than a team, we are like family as I have shared most of the past 10 years with some of these stylists who have joined me in my business.”

Her vision with Salon on Second has quickly become a success. From the stone wall at the front desk area to the beautiful fireplace, Salon on Second’s welcoming ambiance provides a lasting impression. The stunning new salon offers a contemporary edge with quality hairstyling, esthetics and massage services, all in a relaxing atmosphere.

“I have always loved to challenge myself, both personally and professionally”, said Proulx. “After being in the salon industry for ten years, I felt as though I had gathered enough tools and experience to take my career to the next level.”

The location for this charming contemporary hair studio may sound familiar. The newly renovated property, across from the old school board office on Second Street West, was once home to the historic Maple Crest dairy in 1959, and to the Bulk and Feed Mill in following years.

“When the opportunity came up for what I felt was the perfect location, I knew I had to act on it. I would like to thank my family and friends for the support and Baker Heating and Air Conditioning for helping turn my location into a beautiful space,” said Proulx.

With a dynamic team of certified stylists, Salon on Second offers services to both men and women of all ages and hair types.  

“I researched products, tested them and went with those I believed would benefit our clients most. We are committed to continuing with our education, and to provide up-to-date styles and services,” she said.
