You can’t miss this place: It’s the house with the enormous circular window in the front, just near The Last Word bookstore. It’s Flaunt Hair Salon (2166 Windsor Street, 425-0020), just opened last week by Kim Grant and her associates. Grant has been doing hair for 22 years, most recently at Spirit Spa. The new salon is intimate, five chairs and four stylists, and does only hair, no aesthetics.
Colour-correction and making men and women feel good about themselves is the order of the day here. “We wanted a place that was small and quiet, where people could relax and hang out,” says Grant. “This neighbourhood gives me a sense of community.” Though the hours aren’t yet set in stone, this is how it stands at the moment: Monday, Tuesday and Friday, 10am-6pm, Wednesday and Thursday, 10am to 8pm.
