Fru Tjernsli: a salon with a difference
By Maria Vole
After struggling to find a preloved dress for her own wedding, Jenny D. Tjernsli had the idea to open a new salon with a wide range of occasion dresses in all sizes and styles, where every woman can find or create her perfect fit.
Since opening Fru Tjernsli in 2015, Jenny and her knowledgeable team have helped countless women find the dress of their dreams for their special event. This unique bridal and beauty salon is based in the village of Råholt in Eidsvoll, just 30 minutes from Oslo.
Featuring a huge collection of new and preloved wedding dresses, ballgowns and accessories, Fru Tjernsli aims to provide everything a woman might need for an upcoming event – including beauty treatments using sustainable products.
Working with talented tailors and seamstresses, the salon gives women a chance to create their perfect dress by redesigning preloved dresses – which is both more sustainable and more economical. “It’s a shame that so many beautiful dresses are gathering dust in closets, never to be worn and enjoyed again,” Jenny says. “When you think of how much work goes into these kinds of dresses, it’s sad to think that they’ll only be worn for a few hours.”
The Fru Tjernsli team have a true passion for helping others look and feel their best. “We are so privileged to play a part in our customers’ journeys toward their special day – especially brides who are preparing for their wedding,” Jenny says. “We feel like we’re part of the fairytale!”
