Two of Thumpers Salon’s star stylists have teamed up to make their shared dream of running their own salon a reality. Sarah Arbuckle and Nathan MacNeil’s Iron Salon (1883 Granville Court, 407-2322) opened for business last week, breathing even more new life into Granville Square.

“It was only this past August, while buying flowers at The Flower Shop when we discovered our space,” says MacNeil of the decision to make the move. “Sarah and I decided to get the ball rolling and make our salon Pinterest board a reality.”

With the aim of creating a “rustic loft-feel” the two completed a very hands-on reno with the help of Eddie Arbuckle, Sarah’s dad. “Iron Salon has allowed us to expand our creativity,” says MacNeil. “And we look forward to continue to do so in the new year.” You can book an appointment for your new ’do at
