When downtown is in your blood, it’s easy to make business decisions that benefit the bottom line, and the community.
Case in point is Studio 101 MediSpa, which has opened at 127 Augustus Street. Owned and operated by Louise Bazinet-Gendron and her business partner Monty Yancey, Studio 101 offers hairstyling, but also focuses on laser hair removal, skin tightening, body contouring and spot removal.
Bazinet-Gendron is no stranger to downtown Cornwall. She has operated salons in the DBIA and sat on the board as well.
“It was absolutely a must to remain downtown. I’m a huge supporter of downtown. It really feels that a city of our size needs to focus on its downtown,” she said. “We have such vibrance and uniqueness in our downtown.”
Prior to making the move to Augustus Street Studio 101 was nearby on First Street. But like any successful and expanding business, more space was needed for the added technology of the laser hair removal and skin tightening features recently unveiled at the salon.
“With the adding of the new MediSpa, we needed more space,” said Bazinet-Gendron. “We love what we do, and we’re passionate about what we do. We’re into the technology part of it…so we decided to start doing this. We haven’t stopped doing hair – it’s what I am known for. But in the future we will be bringing in more technology to focus on these new areas of expertise.”
Studio 101 is having its official grand opening July 26 from 5 to 8 p.m. Stop by to check out the new digs and speak with the MediSpa experts. For more information about Studio 101 check out its website, and social media accounts.
