ARCOLA - Taylor Osadchuk always had a knack for doing hair and often would style her friends’ hair in high school.
After graduating from high school, Osadchuk went to Saskatoon to attend MC College to become a hairdresser.
The course would run from January to October, requiring 1,500 hours of time. Through her dedication, Osadchuk finished two months early and received the attendance award. She would often attend on the weekends to get her hours in.
After graduating from college in 2018, she became employed by Colour Me Crazy, and remained there until the doors closed in September.
Osadchuk had to decide what her future plans would be, and after a week of deep thought, she decided to open her own lounge.
Her new shop opened on Oct. 4. She chose Arcola as it has limited hairstylists and she already had a lengthy list of clientel.
The crisp, clean place has more to offer than haircuts. Osadchuk also does lash extensions, and works not only in Arcola but in Wawota and Alameda as well.
She attended External Beauty in Winnipeg for a four-day training course on cryolipolysis, which is one-on-one training.
With a membrane wrapped around the area that needs work, a vacuum is placed to work the fat cells. They are reduced and disposed through the body naturally. It is a non-invasive way to reduce fat.
With much research, Osadchuk decided on this method, which has much more detail, as no one in the local area did cryolipolysis.
The new lounge has several rooms. One belongs to Jenna Rae Cosmetics. She performs teeth whitening, permanent makeup and sunless tanning.
It is Osadchuk’s hope to offer a one-stop place to get treated like a queen. She has room for a nail technician and pedicures, and full body waxing.
Although renovations are not complete, she is open for business and says she is loving her new place.
