#20 of Best in The GTA series: Keora Salon in Burlington
I've visited many salons over the years between Btown and Toronto. I've spent as much as $400 on a colour & blowdry (Salon Jie was truly insane in its heydey with his prima donna loft looking down on the rest of his staff, and Michael Kluthe's colour shop was run like a military operation by no-nonsense Lili Jakel). I've had great experiences and certainly a few not-so-great ones too (a crazy blunt cut - my idea, sadly - from The Elmwood Spa made my thick hair look like a giant bell). What I am really looking for in a salon - as are most people - is consistent & lasting colour, reasonable prices and attentive & timely service. People who will gladly offer to run out and put another coin in the parking meter for you. People who will offer you a cup of hot coffee or tea. People who remember which side you part your hair on. People who are always running on time in a drama-free environment. Most of all, people who really give you a great colour and style. This is what I have always found at Keora in Burlington, an Aveda salon. They are always on time, have a fabulous new online booking tool, and are genuinely great people. P.S. I can't recommend Jacqueline enough as my favourite colourist of all time. Heading their again on Saturday - can't wait!
