Gracie Carroll - Civello

a snap from a recent visit at Civello Rosedale

Considering I get a fresh blowout at least once a week to keep up with the amount of shoots, TV segments and events I take part in, I’ve certainly visited my fair share of salons in Toronto. At this point, I’ve got a handful of favourites that I frequent the most, for different reasons. When FLARE asked me to share the ones I love most, I was ecstatic to put together a list of my top 5 picks for the best hair salons in Toronto for their online site.
