Society Salon Grand Opening!

This week, I had the honour of attending the grand opening of Society Salon alongside city officials , longstanding clientele and fellow bloggers. 

I'm always curious when a new beauty spot opens in town and got even more curious when I heard the salon is  Stefania Capovilla's! Even though I had never had my hair styles by her before, I had certainly heard and read about Stefania!

From where, you ask?

Well, if you remember the federal election we had back in the fall, our PM's - Justin Trudeau- hair was quite the star in the opposition's campaigns! Do you know who takes the credit for the "nice hair though"? It's Stefania Cappovila who has over 20 years of experience in the field and is a stylist to many of Canada's elite!
Ottawa's mayor, Jim Watson, was in attendance and officiated the ribbon cutting ceremony! 

The salon is located at 167 Sparks St right in the heart of Ottawa's downtown! I love that because I find that most of the functions I attend are close by so it's very convenient to get your hair done right before an event! 

As it turns out , location was also a big factor for Stefania when choosing where to open her business and it was a match made in heaven when Esthetics by Lucie was looking for a tenant to share the 1120 square foot space. 
Lucie Rosano, owner of Esthetics by Lucie, is well known for her expertise in Brazillian waxing. To complement Society Salon's beautiful blow dry bar , Lucie will have an eyebrow bar and express shellac manicure bar! Gotta love the convenience of getting your hair , eyebrows and nails in one place !  
My favorite part of the salon was the blow dry bar. I absolutely love the wide framed white mirrors and the view of the famous Sparks St as you get your hair done.

The d├ęcor was inspired by Stefania’s love of art deco style and the architecture of the buildings on Sparks Street. Now, let's take a moment to appreciate those beautiful sketches on the wall! 
These sketches, which show the 4 signature styles guests can pick from were hand dream by a talented local makeup artist, Noah Venkatarangam.

The blow dry bar menu has 4 signature Ottawa- inspired styles to choose from. Looking for silky, straight and smooth? Ask for a the Centretown Sleek. Prefer undone curls?  Ask for Westboro Beach Waves and when the red carpet calls, ask for the Hilly-wood! If you are from Ottawa, I'm sure you love the play on words of the neighbourhoods as much as I do!

The entire event was a huge success- Stefania & Lucie were both sweethearts and I can tell that Society Salon is here to stay for generations!
I should propose that they keep this candy bar they had set up for the event always up! CandyManSam did not disappoint with their sweet catering.
