Whether you’re heading out for a night on the town or having a nice romantic dinner with your spouse, it’s always nice to look and feel your best.

Whether it’s hair, nails, waxing, ear piercing, or skincare, Aeon Studio Hair and Esthetics Salon in Castlegar can help you achieve your goal of looking and feeling great.

“Our motto for the salon is ‘live life beautifully.’.We want people to let the inner beauty shine through on the outside,” said owner Karen Soukoroff. “We offer men’s cuts, women’s cuts, perms, colouring, colour corrections, body waves, foils, and more.”

With Christmas not far away, Aeon Salon is the perfect place to pick up a gift for that special person. The studio offers L’Oreal and other top of the line products for sale at very competitive prices.

“We sell at a good price because we want our customers and clients to have the best,” said Soukoroff. “We also sell styling tools such as flat irons. We have one right now that goes right up to 450 degrees that sells for $90. We sell blow dryers, brushes, and different lotions.”

Soukoroff recommends making an appointment, particularly with the studio getting busy heading in the Christmas season.

“We usually are busy so it is good to give us a call especially as the season is becoming really busy,” she said. “People are pre-booking their appointments. We do get pretty booked up for December probably in October/November.”

Soukoroff has owned and operated Aeon Studio for almost a decade now. She has a staff of five ladies available for hairstyling and esthetics.

“I bought it off Sandy (Kimbrell) nine years ago,” said Soukoroff. “I was working in Nelson at the time at my own esthetics business. I was taking business classes because I eventually wanted to own my own salon. I just didn’t know it would be so fast.”

After running into Kimbrell in Nelson, Soukoroff found out Kimbrell wanted to sell her hair salon in Castlegar.

“I had been thinking of coming into Castlegar and doing stuff because I’m from here,” said Soukoroff. “I had a lot of clients that would drive into Nelson from Castlegar. Since having this place, we have a vast span of clients that come from Nelson, Harrop, and Six Mile that come here.”

Soukoroff grew up in Slocan before moving with her family to Castlegar at age 13. She graduated from Stanley Humphries Secondary School and then moved to Kelowna to take an aesthetics course.

Aeon Studio is located in Castlegar at 617 Columbia Avenue near Kootenay Market.
