Style, sophistication, and fun. These words describe Allure Hair Studio and Spa and its founder Katrin Ostrowka of London, ON.
Born in Poland, Katrin dreamed of pursuing a life in Canada. Always interested in style, fashion and trends, she developed a career as a professional hairstylist in Poland and Germany where she lived before taking a chance on fate and moving to Canada – without knowing a word of English!
After arriving in Canada, Katrin worked with a number of salons in London, ON developing a handle on the English language and then took another leap of faith. In 2002 she decided to go out on her own. She opened Allure Hair Studio and Spa with a vision of creating an oasis of creativity, warmth, and style.
Over the years Katrin expanded Allure’s salon services to include soothing spa treatments with up-to-date equipment allowing her to provide all her guests with the utmost experience in relaxing spa services. Katrin is a firm believer in using the all-natural Aveda products (exclusive to salons) at Allure. “I love using all natural products,” says Katrin. “They are much better for your skin, hair and health because they do not contain the toxins that other products have. Also they are very environmentally friendly and are not animal tested which is important to me.”
Katrin has built a strong team of professionals at Allure from the best in emerging hairstylists to established professionals; she has surrounded herself with the highest caliber of salon and spa specialists. Guests can enter the oasis Katrin has created and be pampered with the best in aesthetics including Facials, Manicures and Pedicures, Waxing and Aroma Therapy.
sophistication the newly renovated ceilings and walls, artwork and window displays now define the spirit of the studio. With the relaxing, stylish atmosphere both clientele and staff feel at home when they walk through Allure’s doors.
Katrin is determined to put all of her heart and soul into creating the best salon and spa experience in London.
“I want people who come into my studio to feel welcome, comfortable and happy. I want to see them walk out revitalized with a look they love and an experience they will remember,” says Katrin.
Katrin’s team of salon and spa specialists and her guests are like family to her. The shared love of the work is evident throughout the salon. It is seen in the happy faces of her staff and the revitalized faces of her guests as they depart.
