Lydia and Marilyn have been friends and colleagues for quite some time. They've both worked in various Salons over the Years and have always dreamed about opening a Salon together. "Our goal was to create a beautiful environment that we'd be proud to work in, but more importantly, one that people would also feel welcomed and comfortable coming to". Now they are beyond excited to have done just that, and excited to welcome you to Amberwood Beauty Lounge. With over 30 years of experience between both of them, they will always ensure that their guests feel their best and receive the greatest possible experience.
