The Team

Shelley Linthorne (Salon Owner/Senior Stylist/Mentor)

Licensed stylist since 1981, Shelley has explored almost every aspect of the industry. Former educator for Framesi, Redken and Nioxin brands, her  knowledge and experience speaks for itself. She has even been a sales rep for  North America’s largest distributor of salon and spa products. She is a qualified master colourist and thinning hair expert. She loves mentoring the younger staff in being aware of their potential in her chosen industry.

Shelley opened the doors to Beauty On Bank in 2011, knowing that the South  End of Ottawa was lacking a fresher, more modern salon. Our motto has always been, high quality services and products in a relaxed, comfortable  and friendly environment, where everybody knows your name! Customer  service is #1 in our industry and we pride ourselves on making you feel welcome.

As an employer, Shelley follows ‘Summit Salon’, the industry’s largest  consulting firm coaching salons to lead their stylists to heights of growth both financially and professionally.
