Our gorgeous new exterior renovation!


Welcome to our new blog! We will be posting all kinds of things here about beauty, trends, tips and tricks, before and afters, and information about what's happening at The Loft. 

If you're new to The Loft, here's a little history:

Built 1910, the building has a long history. It was first the Hudson’s Bay Company Mail Order Building and then Rice Knitting Company. It was converted into military barracks in 1939 and underwent exterior renovations in 1989 when it became a salon. It was first, and most memorably, known as Set on Fort, and more recently Salon One 11. In early 2015,  the salon was purchased by long-time stylist Gerald Pankiw. He has worked at the location for nearly 15 years and is passionate about the business. He immediately began giving the salon a makeover inside and out and renamed the salon The Loft Salon • Spa • Bar.
