New Local Business Unwind Hair and Makeup


Unwind Hair & Makeup is a new 100% vegan hair salon located at 17 Duncan Street. Owner, Jenna Frontiero is proud to have opened a business in the Old Esler Building, once owned by her late grandfather, Michael Feldman. 

Unwind is an exclusive Pureology serious color care salon which is 100% vegan and derived from organic botanicals.  Because we at Unwind are striving to help create environmental and personal awareness we also carry a Amonia-free, oil based, odorless color line called INOA. " With many people having allergies to hair color and beauty products these days, I wanted to be able to offer color and other hair services with as little chemicals as possible." -Jenna

Our goal is not only to provide exceptional services but we are also dedicated to giving back to the community.  We offer discounted services to family’s in the area who have children with special needs.  We look forward to continuing to hold events at the salon where we can donate proceeds to charities we are passionate about. In October, Jenna and her team offered $5 pink hair extensions for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  With the response so overwhelming, we decided to continue to host different events where we could do similar offerings.  

From the moment you step through the door, Unwind staff members want you to be able to come in and relax from everyday stresses.  In doing so, we offer a complimentary hair and scalp massage before services begin.

Unwind can be contacted via email at, or on our website at  As well as specials and offerings on our facebook page: Unwind Hair.  Or simply stopping on by downtown Gloucester at 17 Duncan Street.  Please feel free to call with any other questions. 978-282-1900
