A note from the owner

To our valued clientele,

When Hair on Second Avenue was founded in 2017, our vision went beyond providing exceptional luxury hair services to the heart of the Glebe. We set out to create an experience that fostered genuine connections and made a positive impact on our community.

Our unwavering commitment lies in listening, guiding, and collaborating with each and every guest, ensuring that you leave our salon feeling confident.

Whether you're seeking a routine refresh, an exhilarating colour transformation, or a bold new look, the Hair on Second Avenue team is eager to turn your hair dreams into a reality.

Welcome you to the Hair On Second Avenue family,

Hair On Second Avenue is a Green Salon

As a Certified Green Circle Salon, 98% of the items used during a service at Hair On Second Avenue are recycled.

Last week, I saw Vanessa at Hair on Second Avenue, and she gave me five hours of her undivided attention. The end result was a head full of healthy hair with bright, silvery highlights. I knew I was in good hands.

The salon itself is beautiful, woman-owned and operated, decorated in elegant black and white. I’ve found a new happy place!
