Our way of saying thank you!
We donate to The Stop Community Food Centre, a local organization connecting low-income Torontonians to good food.
We also offer Pay What You Can haircuts in salon and at BIG Festival. And donate beauty products during the holidays to The Stop.
We have recently begun haircut days with The Stop's outreach program and look forward to initating a regular PWYC day at the salon.
Just had the most wonderful experience at Queen's Shop. Nicole, my stylist, was a consummate professional, while also being extremely personable.
The salon is simple and unpretentious (which I love!), but offers a variety of complimentary beverages, and it appears some snacks, as well, a lovely and thoughtful touch.
It should be noted that I've never been particularly loyal to a hair stylist, but this is truly the best hair cut I've received in recent memory. Before I left, I made an appointment for a follow-up four months from now. That's a good sign!
