A couple of weeks ago, I was invited
to attend the opening of the second location of Studio Fontana. The King West
location is a little bit more exciting than its Yorkville sister, as you’d
expect given how trendy the area is at the moment. In fact, the new Studio Fontana
is more exciting than any other hair salon I’ve ever been to. It’s not only a
beautiful hair salon with a nice industrial chic feel to it, but it’s also an
open-concept space that serves the creative community. It’s a place where people
passionate about hair, makeup and fashion can converge and let themselves be inspired by other
people’s work. There’s a photography studio inside the salon that can be used by photographers, hair stylists, fashion designers, makeup artists, and even bloggers. The studio is bright and airy and is so relaxing with its high
ceiling, white walls and wooden details – and mind you, I was surrounded by
busy industry types, so that’s saying something! There’s fifteen hair stations,
so plenty of space for the professionals to do their thing – possibly while a
model twirls in the background. Fancy.
I can’t vouch for the hair services
offered, but if you’re looking for a really interesting creative space in
Toronto, you should check out Studio Fontana and maybe try booking the
photography studio and get back to me because I’m really curious about how this
will work. If you want to feel like a model for a day, they can even book a
photographer for you!
It was a fun evening…I got to hang
out with Jenn and stuff my face with fantastic food.
Waffles and crepes for dinner? I will never say no to that.
