We are dedicated to superior service and results, while providing our neighbourhood with a warm and relaxing atmosphere. Although all the stylists at Savvi have been educated and trained by elite schools and courses, each bring their own personalities and techniques to their work.
I got my start in Yorkville salons in 2000, and very early on, at the urging of my clients, I decided to open my own salon so I could create a more creative environment where artists could do what they love in collaboration with our clients.
I opened Salon Iron Butterfly in 2001, and it was a great success — the business grew, and we were voted best salon in the Beaches in 2009 and 2010. During that time, I also continued to learn, and then teach — going on to become a Master Cutter, Master Colour Tech, and Colour Tech Educator for TIGI North America.
I closed Iron Butterfly and took time off when my daughter was born in 2013, and when it was time to come back to work, I wanted my new salon to have the same personal touch — so I named it after my daughter’s nickname, Savvi — which is short and sweet, but also (spelled “savvy”) means knowledge and experience, which I feel really represents where I am at this point in my life.
I also love that I’ve been able to return to the same neighbourhood to pick up where I left off — It’s a great, close-knit community, and I feel more at home here in the salon than I do anywhere else.
I’ve always believed in this — do what you love and the success will follow — and I’m happy to have loyal clients from the neighbourhood, across the city, and even other countries, that have been with me for years.
We have not had any word on a date of re-opening from the government yet.
We are hopeful that it will be announced soon. In preparation for this we are putting in place protection protocols for our clients and staff.
- We will be only taking one client at a time in the salon.
- All clients are asked to wear masks when coming for their appointment.
- There will be a 30-minute period between all appointments to disinfect for the next client.
- Clients will be asked to wait outside the salon until we come to let you in.
- We will be providing all of our regular services.
- If you want to be put on the first to call list, please contact us with your name and contact preference.
Looking forward to seeing you soon and doing great hair 🙂
