There’s something about curling up with a glass of wine, listening to great music and exhaling. You are excited to see your artist and they are excited to see you.
You have complete trust in the space and feel right at home. Your hair is the piece of art they continue to work with in a way that just perfectly flows every time.

Toronto is talking about Left This Way Studio,

and they're saying great things.


   stumbled upon Left This Way on Instagram and really loved their work so I decided to give it a try and make an appointment for a cut and colour given that my Covid hair has not been looking fantastic. Upon arriving at the studio, not only is it beautiful to look at but extremely clean. Rachel greeted me at the door and welcomed me to take a seat in her chair. She was extremely patient and really cared to listen to what I was looking for. She even showed me pictures to give me more options. I've never been one to write a review for the services I receive, but Rachel and Dan were nothing like I've ever experienced in a hair salon ever!

They are the most kindest people and you can really tell if they really love what they do and care to know the people who come to their salon.

This really holds value to me. I will definitely be recommending Left This Way Studio to everyone I know who wants to get their hair done by the most talented and kind people out there. Can't wait to come back! ☺️

   was very careful about choosing a salon to colour and style my hair as I have long, previously colour treated hair. From the get go the energy of Left This Way Studio is very welcoming, open and warm! Rachel was very attentive in taking a thorough intake of my hair history, which is what I was looking for, as well as giving me advice about expectations. They're also really open about the price points so that you don't feel pressured about anything. Both she and Darren were so warm, funny and engaging

I felt as if I was talking to old friends!

They were so thorough attentive and careful with my hair. I don't think they missed a single thing! They always kept me in the loop by communicating what was happening at each and every step, from carefully combing my hair, putting in the foils, washing, adding toner, and styling it. My hair felt and looked so amazing! I don't have the words to describe it! And I definitely do not skimp on the details, they spent 5+ hours on my hair to make sure it looked gorgeous and was long lasting! Five stars and I'll definitely be coming back. Thank you both for the wonderful experience!

  'm speechless… Left This Way Studio is the absolute best colourist in Canada!! I've been coming to them for my colour for about a year now and each time leaves me breathless. I cannot accurately describe how happy I am with my hair. The amazing duo of Darren and Rachel made me feel like a celebrity and are the absolute best/nicest/down to earth people too!!

I keep getting compliments from total strangers and it's the best feeling.

If you haven't been here yet, you're absolutely missing out!! 10 out of 10 would recommend!!

      achel and Darren have been tending to my hair for years. At Left This Way Studio expect an experience rather than just a service. Upon entering the studio you are welcomed with a sweet ambience — low light candles and good music, the eclectic style of the space shows how they harmonized the style of soft furnishings, textures and colours to create a cohesive and relaxing sanctuary. Their professionalism is untainted,

I am constantly amazed by their knowledge of hair and hair care.

They educate and assist you on putting together a ritual for acquiring fantastic her. They demonstrate the highest level of intricate design work involving cutting, colour and styling. In order to serve you best they have a tailored unique consultation process that will take into consideration your hair type, style and face shape while also respecting your preference. I adore my hair whenever I leave and receive copious amounts of compliments every single time. You will leave the salon feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and like you have a spring in your step. I can't recommend Left This Way enough as people, experts and professionals!

I love this place! Everyone working there was so kind, from the moment I walked in, I felt at home. My appointment was with Darren, the owner, for some coloring and with Soo for a haircut. Both truly took the time to consult with me and understand what I wanted. During my appointment,

I got spoiled with a nice head massage while getting my hair washed, and I even got offered a glass of wine.

I am really happy about the results, the new color is simply stunning and Soo did a great job with my haircut as well. So if you're looking for an excellent hairdresser in Toronto, I cannot recommend this place enough.

Darren and Rachel were absolutely amazing. It was my first time at this studio and because of all the wonderful things I heard about it, I decided to go all in for my first colour and a big chop. Darren and Rachel were both so attentive to my needs and really made me feel at home.

They listened intently to what I wanted for my hair and offered expert advice.

They are both incredibly skilled at their craft and I could not be happier with the end result. After bumping around between many salons in Toronto I can confidently say I will be sticking with Left This Way. Thank you Darren and Rachel for such a positive experience. I am loving my new hair!

I had an amazing experience at Left This Way Studio. After trying a few spots in Toronto I found them online to transform my hair from brunette to copper.

The colour turned out beautifully and was exactly what I was hoping for!!

From start to finish I felt as though there was care and dedication to what I wanted. I could say a million more things about them but definitely book an appointment your hair is in good hands.
