The Coifferie Triangle hair salon held an open house on July 5 to celebrate the grand opening of its new location in a newly renovated century-old building on Lambton Street in Ormstown.
Owners Sophie Daoust, Joël Bouchard, and Kim Barrington relocated after more than 20 years in their previous location. The renovations took over three months to complete. “We had to be visionaries when we first came to visit,” laughs Daoust, who says “everything” needed to be redone.
The building was first built in 1900 at the corner with Bridge Street. It had stood vacant for more than five years before owner Lynne Brocklehurst moved into the upstairs, three years ago. “It was sadly neglected,” says Brocklehurst. “I always wanted to do my part to bring Lambton Street back to life, and I now know why it is such a struggle to maintain these beautiful old buildings,” she says.
This is the second of three major renovations to be revealed this summer on Lambton Street. La Boutique Fermière opened recently, after working to renovate a new location while emphasizing facets of the historic building. The much-awaited reopening of the Express 57 restaurant after a disastrous fire last summer is expected to be announced any day now as well.
In the meantime, the Coifferie Triangle offers clients a glimpse of modern style mixed with historic elegance.
