That wasn’t accurate.
Regulars and lovers of the salon can rest easy, as longtime Flaunt employee and master stylist/colourist Michael Hinchey has taken over ownership of the brand. The Windsor Street location of the salon will remain open until July 1, after which time Hinchey and the Flaunt name will relocate and continue to operate out of downtown's AQC Salon (5954 Spring Garden Road). You can still book appointments with him online or by phone.
"Everything for except number of employees will stay the same. Because the salon has such a great reputation in the city I wanted to make sure that people who are looking for us will still be taken care of," says Hinchey of his motivation to take over Flaunt. "We didn’t want people to call and be disappointed."
