Yorkville gem - Oskar On Scollard Hair Studio!

Hidden away in Yorkville is a jewel box of a salon - Oskar On Scollard Hair Studio - walking by if you didn't look down as you passed you could miss it, and that would be a real shame! Unlike other Yorkville salons that I've been to that seem to try to cultivate an atmosphere that is so exclusive that I never feel fancy enough to be there, Oskar's has a welcoming vibe that is friendly, relaxed and perfect for spending a few hours getting beautified in.

I recently visited Darren, the senior colourist at Oskar On Scollard for a summer colour refresh. What I really liked about him was that rather then just showing me hair swatches and then applying the colour I picked out, he took the time to discuss the pro and cons of various options and I ended up with one that wouldn't have been the one I would have chosen but was the one that would blend best with the colour already in my hair - this is the reason to go to an expert!

Once my hair was a rich auburn shade I was off to see Ethan, the senior stylist for a blowout. You might not realize how important a good blowout is after colour but the longer you can hold off washing your hair after colour, the better off you (and your colour) will be - I always try and leave it for at least 2 days - and if you have a great blowout you will have the volume to hide that fact that your hair might not be the cleanest. This time there was so much nice volume in my hair I was able to go 3 days without washing it!

And while I loved my colour and blowout I have to say that my favourite part of my visit was the Gloss Treatment that was applied to my hair after the colour - which left my hair so smooth and shiny it was like glass - I plan on making this treatment a regular part of my life!

Depending on who you see, prices vary - cuts start at $50, colour at $90, highlights range around $130 and the amazing gloss treatment is a bargain at $30 - it can be added to any service or had on it's own!

Oskar On Scollard is located at 68 Scollard in Yorkville - 647-346-3306 - www.oskaronscollard.com.
