Philosophy Salon: High-quality amenities, facilities, and equipment

Quality amenities and facilities are some of the telling signs that a salon can provide you with the quality care services you seek. If the tools, devices, and equipment that a boutique uses are up to par with the latest innovations in technology, then you have better options to choose from. 

What makes Philosophy Salon stand out from the rest of the boutiques in Toronto is the state-of-the-art equipment used by the team. Moreover, the staff and hairstylists are fully trained on how to use these devices so they can give you top-notch services that your hair deserves. 

Choosing the right salon can be a hard decision to make since a lot of things need to be considered. If you’re still mulling over which salon to visit, then let the facilities and equipment of the boutique speak for itself. 

There are a lot of devices that salons should equip themselves with and in this post, we enumerated the things you’ll see at Philosophy Salon.

Salon amenities

Philosophy Salon is located right at the heart of Rosedale, Toronto. It is a prime spot for people seeking hair care treatments because the place is easily accessible. Here are some of the amenities you can enjoy when you visit us at the salon for a hair makeover:

Parking spaces

There are parking spaces available right next to the salon that you can use if you decide to travel via car. These spaces are free to use by customers only so make sure to set an appointment on your preferred date and time so we can reserve a parking spot for you. 

Clean bathrooms 

The salon also has a few bathrooms that you can freely use as long as you are a customer here. One of our staff members cleans the stalls every hour to ensure the cleanliness of the facility. Please do observe proper hygiene and tidiness at all times when using the bathroom to give way for the next user. 

Waxing rooms

One of the extra services that we offer our valued customers are waxing services. You can ask for eyebrow, leg, arm, underarm, bikini, and Brazilian waxing at the front desk so that a staff member can assist you. We have private waxing rooms at the back end of the salon for these sessions. Each of the rooms is equipped with waxing tools that can be used for this service. Maximum privacy for each room is ensured so you don’t have to worry about getting exposed when the waxing sessions are ongoing. 

Relaxing massage

You can have a relaxing massage while waiting for your stylist to serve your needs. There are times that the customer before you would take more time than what was originally scheduled so we provided rooms for a relaxing massage while you wait. If you’re experiencing any muscle aches and back pain, then we suggest that you get a massage with one of our experienced masseurs. They are well trained to give comfort and relief by means of a relaxing massage. 

Our waxing rooms double as the massage rooms when they are vacant. These rooms offer complete privacy so you can sit back and relax as the therapist massage your whole body. Please be advised that there are additional charges for our massage therapy services. You will receive the billing once right after you finish with our hair treatment. 

Manicure and pedicure

At times, there are long queues for our hair care treatments so you can opt to have your nails done while waiting. Our staff are also trained in the art of manicure and pedicure services so you can get beautiful results for this service. 

Comfortable sofas are provided so you can sit back and relax while your nails are expertly done by our staff. Rest assured that right after this session, your stylist will be available to take care of your hair care needs. 

Product section

Are you looking for the right products to use for your hair maintenance needs? You’ve come to the right place because here at Philosophy Salon, we offer high-quality products that you can use for your hair. Ask one of our staff to assist you in choosing the right product for your hair. 

We have an array of brands that you can choose from that are affordable and useful. There are shampoos, conditioners, coconut oil, aloe vera, hairspray, styling gels, and hair dyes among others. 

Salon equipment

Here at Philosophy Salon, we pride ourselves on high-end equipment and devices that our staff uses to give you the best hair makeover that you deserve. Check out the tools that you can see right here at the salon during your scheduled appointment:

Salon styling chair

The chairs that our salon uses are comfortable and fully functional. You can relax your body just by sitting down and letting our hair care experts do the heavy lifting for you. These chairs are designed to be adjustable so you don’t have to fidget into different positions when the stylist is working on your hair. 

Large wall mirrors

A salon isn’t complete without a large wall mirror where you can check your reflection while the stylist is working on your hair. These mirrors are designed to be huge so you can see the step by step process of how the stylist is treating your hair. Being able to see your hair transform right before your eyes can boost your confidence. 

Salon trolley cart

Stylists need an array of tools and products to fully give your hair the treatment it deserves. Having a handy and portable salon trolley cart is helpful for the stylists especially when there are a lot of things needed to be done to your hair. These trolleys have various products and tools including:

  • All-purpose shears
  • Blending shears
  • Powerful and lightweight blow dryer
  • Curling iron
  • Straightening iron
  • Razor
  • Paddle brush
  • Professional combs
  • Sectioning clips
  • Water sprayer
  • Round brush.

Shampoo chair units

For intensive hair care treatments, one of the protocols that stylists have to do is washing your hair. This is needed so that dirt and various debris that obstructs the hair can be removed so it’s fresh before getting the treatment. Additionally, removing hair care products you have put on before going into the salon can make it hard for the products to be fully absorbed into your luscious locks. 

The shampoo chair units available at Philosophy Salon are comfortable and high-quality. There’s also a shampoo bowl to catch the soap suds and water so it wouldn’t cause a mess. Right underneath the bowl is a cabinet where stylists store the shampoos they’ll be using on your hair. 

Salon dryers

There are certain hair care treatments that need heat to fully activate the chemicals. This is where the salon dryers come in handy. Your head will be put directly below the styling hood that emits heat so your hair can fully absorb the nutrients from the product. This method is usually done for treatments such as perms, Brazilian blowout, rebonding, and hair spa among others. 

Colour labs

The art of creating the right hair colour for your hair is a complex process that only trained stylists can do. This is why at Philosophy Salon, we have colour labs where our staff can mix hair dyes effortlessly. The station is equipped with various hair colouring products and chemicals that are safe to use.

Mixing colouring products takes time to master so only trust your favourite Philosophy Salon stylist to do this for you. We will ensure that your vision will be met so that you can fully enjoy the results of the hair colouring treatment. 

Children salon chairs

Here at our salon, we provide specialized hair care services for children. Just like the adults, your kids also deserve a good hairstyle that can boost their confidence, as well as help them function normally in their everyday lives. 

There are special child salon chairs available at the salon so your child doesn’t have to adjust to the usual adult stools. These chairs also have funky designs so your kids can play while a stylist is working on their hair. They come in unique designs such as unicorns and cars that your kids will definitely enjoy. 

Hair towels

One of the most important things to look for in a salon is fresh clean towels. These are used to dry your hair right after washing it. Here at Philosophy Salon, we only use fresh towels for our customers and all the soiled ones are put in the hamper. At the end of the day, one of our staff will be tasked to take these dirty towels to the laundry so that we can use fresh ones the next day.
