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.
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!
