Powder Puff Salon // 680 Pape Av

This adorable salon right on Pape and Danforth Avenues is hands down one of the most awesome salons to get your colour done. Plus, everyone knows the best prices are in neighbourhood salons - and this awesome salon has one of the best real, authentic vibes around.

Powder Puff uses Matrix products to make sure you're getting the highest quality color in the industry for the fairest price, and their stylists know exactly what it is they're doing. Meaning you can walk out of here looking trendy and fresh, and feeling like the confident star you always were.

The beauty world is always changing and constantly innovating new products for all us makeup obsessed freaks to go out to buy and try.
