About Us

Turning Heads Beauty Lounge opened its doors late November 2016 under the ownership of Jackie Van der Elst.

“My goal was to create an outlet for those seeking an opportunity for women to feel great about themselves by pampering them with outstanding results in hair, nails, lashes and waxing services. Our staff takes great pride in their creative talents and can ensure you they are there to help you relax, dream a little, feel great and look fantastic.”

Brief Bio:  Jackie arrived in Canada from British Guyana July 6, 1981. Her early roots can be found in Madeira Island off Portugal. Jackie is a proud Nana to two beautiful grandchildren and spends her spare time baking cookies and travelling.

In 2016, Jackie re-invented herself with this Beauty Lounge after undergoing major breast removal surgery in January 2015 followed by chemotherapy, radiation and hormonal treatment.
