Oh Sheila!

After I finished up at the record store and the cheese place it was time to make my way home.  I had a great time but I was feeling a little tired and in need of some r and r.
I stood on the corner of Broadview and Danforth in a daze.  I was thinking about cheese and the great cd I had just picked up.
Have you ever felt a tug in your core before?  You know that feeling like “I should go that way” or “I shouldn’t eat that week old tuna in the fridge”?  Well I was getting tugged on the corner of Broad and Dan!
It was that tugging that made me do an abrupt left to cross away from where I thought I wanted to go.  I love following my instincts.  I am always open to some new adventure here in the city I love.
I was tugged across the street and in the direction of south.  I took about 50 steps when the tugging pulled me into a spa and salon that was in pitch darkness.  I tried the door anyway.  It opened to my surprise.  I investigated and there were three people straightening around.  They were sweeping and dusting and primping.
I apologized.  I realised they were closed and I was interrupting their clean up.  Almost in unison they said, “Come in”.  Big smiles. The most welcoming of smiles.
What a fabulous space.  I was in need of a “new do” and they were willing to do me.  I was impressed. They opened their doors wide to me and sat me down in the chair for a grooming.
A little snip and some celebrity gossip.  I was in heaven.  I can’t really explain it but all joking aside I was drawn to their little shop around the corner.  I had passed many salons that day and none of them impressed me.  This one was calling me from 50 or more feet away. 10432037_604115346370486_1605243930_n
There was a wonderful aura about the place.  I was so relaxed and at home.  The two ladies that were there, “Sheila” the owner and “Farzana” her assistant, were extremely attentive.  I felt like I had been going there for years even though I had just met them.
After my perfect cut, dry and style Farzana took me on a tour of the place.  Not as small as I expected.  There is a tea and beverage area for relaxation before or after your appointment.  There is a massage and spa section.  Apparently the massage therapist has magic hands.  In the back yard there is a garden that will be set up for BBQ’s and other social gatherings for relaxation once the weather improves.  If ever!
They offer a special discount too if you bring a guest.  Which I thought was wonderful.  The whole experience was perfect.  You know I’m all about my hair.  I am a fan of this lovely salon and spa for sure and will be back often.
Thanks ladies for treating me to such a spectacular experience!

About Bruce in the City

I have been writing my blog since 2010. I was inspired to do so after enjoying an amazing meal with some friends of mine here in Toronto. I decided to tell everyone about my great night and the fabulous restaurant I went to and shazam my blog was born!
