On June 1st 2016.. we opened our doors to the public - and man.. has time flown!
Since opening, Ascend Salon's most important core value has been to reduce our industry's negative impact on the environment. As an eco-conscious salon we offer a variety of vegan, cruelty-free, and/or ethically manufactured products for our guests; we take great measures to operate as carefully and consciously as possible - this spans from the very building we operate in to the building materials we used, to the brands we have selected, and everything in-between; and we recycle everything that is possible to recycle.
We began as a Green Circle Salon; collecting and recycling our hair, plastics, aerosol containers, paper products, excess colour, chemicals and used foil. We have recently switched to a new, local company called Style Recycling, who we believe are doing an even better job of keeping our industry's waste out of the landfills and waterways.
Our second core value at Ascend is to be a positive presence in our community by helping to elevate others. We have held several fundraising events for the YES project, and since then we have donated to countless charities, fundraisers, initiatives, local non-profits and local events on an ongoing basis.
Another small way of giving back for us has been to create a unique new platform for local artists to gain exposure, and to provide an opportunity for these pieces to sell at a better rate than traditional gallery settings - we have already sold more than a dozen works directly from our walls, and those works are now displayed in private collections across Canada.
