Big, FAT Spa Day at The Manor Hair Lounge and Spa

My fellow fatshion blogger ladies: Sarah from, and Luna from and myself were generously invited to a day of pampering at The Manor Hair Lounge and Day Spa this past Sunday afternoon, and we couldn't have had a more lovely day getting fabulous by the amazing staff!

The Manor Lounge and Day Spa is a chilled out salon/spa nestled away in a beautiful century home located at 584 Church St, Toronto, ON, in the heart of Toronto's downtown "Gay Village". It's also an "Aveda Concept" salon and spa, and follows Aveda's "green salon" practises such as the proper collecting, disposing and recyling of foils and chemicals. The best salon is a green salon that cares!  As for my own personal opinion, well - I absolutely *love* Aveda products, and I was extremely excited to see that the salon offers and embraces the "Aveda Concept".

 Us ladies were immediately greeted by a friendy and inviting atmosphere and staff, then rushed away to start our hair beautification!
