Trends Hair and Nail Stu­dio cel­e­brated their re­cent re­lo­ca­tion from the Swift Cur­rent Mall to the Carmel Mall dur­ing a grand re-open­ing on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

The cel­e­bra­tion at their #4 244 1st Ave. N.E. lo­ca­tion al­lowed Trends to of­fi­cially un­veil the new ameni­ties and ser­vices avail­able at their new sur­round­ings.

“It’s fan­tas­tic. It’s a huge re­lief to have the tran­si­tion com­pletely done,” ex­plained Amanda Pil­grim, owner of Trends Hair and Nail Stu­dio. “We moved down here begin­ning of Au­gust, and it’s now mid­dle of Fe­bru­ary, so its been a long few months of renos and mov­ing and or­ga­niz­ing and changes. But now that the changes are here, we’re su­per ex­cited to keep mov­ing for­ward and keep grow­ing.”

Their move was put in mo­tion when Dol­larama wanted to move into the quar­ter of the Swift Cur­rent Mall where their for­mer salon was lo­cated.

“We had two weeks to move ev­ery­thing and prep and do renos and ev­ery­thing, and un­der 48 hours to get ev­ery­thing set up and open for busi­ness again. So I man­aged to un­load three 16 foot trail­ers, get mir­rors hung, sta­tions set up, and ev­ery­thing that we needed to be op­er­a­tional - not com­pletely fin­ished but op­er­a­tional - with a bunch of help from peo­ple in the com­mu­nity which was fan­tas­tic,” she said.

“Now we are at our very tail end of our renos, do­ing the lit­tle fin­ish­ing touches here and there, and then ev­ery­thing is com­pletely fin­ished.”

“We just de­cided that it would be a bet­ter lo­ca­tion for us to be down­town, kind of sup­port the small com­mu­nity that’s down here. Be­cause down­town has an awe­some com­mu­nity amongst its busi­nesses,” she added.

Trends boasts ser­vices on two lev­els in the Carmel Mall. The down­stairs fea­tures a bright new salon area, with eight stylist sta­tions.

Pil­grim is also ex­cited about the ser­vices they pro­vide from their sec­ond floor space. They have three pedi­cure chairs, an in­crease from just one at their old lo­ca­tion.

“So now if you want to do a girls af­ter­noon you can come hang out and get pedi­cures done,” she said.

“We have our bar­ber­ing room for men to come into and get straight blade shaves, we do fa­cial and head as well.”

There is also a wax­ing room, and eye­lash and re­lax­ation mas­sage room in their ex­panded space.

She is also ex­cited about their newly opened wed­ding party room.

“Ev­ery wed­ding that’s booked through the salon gets their own pri­vate room. There’s two stylist sta­tions and a make-up sta­tion up there as well. So they get to come in for the morn­ing, hang out while they get their hair done for the wed­ding, they all get to be to­gether and they’re not dis­rupted by any­body down­stairs in the salon, or vice versa.”

The fam­ily friendly salon is open seven days a week.

Swift Cur­rent Mayor De­nis Per­rault helped cut the rib­bon at the grand re-open­ing of Trends Hair and Nail Stu­dio at their new Carmel Mall lo­ca­tion in down­town Swift Cur­rent.
