I am so excited to share my new hairstyle experience at Toni & Guy in Toronto. I have been wanting to go lighter for a long time as I had highlights but wanted to take them to the next level.
I visited the Yorkville location on Thursday morning and Clarissa greeted me. She is absolutely lovely, cool and an inspiration. A true girl boss! We totally hit it off and chatted while she gave my eyebrows a makeover. I was beyond impressed with the results, it is so important to get them done professionally if you are not sure how to clean them and maintain them. I am no pro so I leave my eyebrows to the experts. It is amazing to see how much they can improve your look!
Next, I was off to see Nicole. She is another cool girl with a great sense of humour and mad skills. She sat down with me first and we talked about the look I was going for. Just to give you a bit of context, I want to eventually go grey at the bottom so she made sure I had all the information in terms of caring for my hair, any possible damage and advise me to do this in stages. Always have a chat with your hair stylist before hand to make sure they can manage your expectations and ask questions so that you don’t end up disappointed. I know, sometimes we want to get the exact colour, the right shade but sometimes the price your hair has to pay is too high and so its better to do it slowly and do it right.
We chatted for a long time as my visit was about 4 hrs. We laughed so hard and Nicole was so patient while I was working on my phone. I was heading to an event right after my appointment so I had to apply my makeup as she was styling my hair and she was nothing but gracious. I cannot wait to go back and have her do my hair again.
A couple of days later I had a straightening iron emergency. Mine broke so I called Clarissa and she quickly offered me the best option, I went to pick it up as I am constantly styling my hair at home and cannot live without one. I am so happy with my new one and its actually saving me lots of time when getting ready.
I am planning to get a haircut and change my style a bit the next time I visit. Can’t wait to show you how my hair evolves!
I am so grateful to the team at Toni & Guy for the perfect start to my hair journey.
