With already a location in one of the busiest districts in central Vancouver, Muse Salon has graced their presence by opening their first ever Toronto location right in the hustle & bustle of Queen Street West. They are situated on the second floor above Ebisu, an Izakaya restaurant replacing Sushi Queen. A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to visit the salon to get the full Muse Salon experience.
Muse Salon strives to use the newest equipment, safest products and techniques from experienced staff. The shampoo stations at Muse Salon are all products from Japan. It’s the first time I’ve ever sat in an electrical shampoo chair – it was quite relaxing and comfy. I didn’t have to physically adjust my position so that my head would sit comfortably in the shampoo bowl.
I’ve had my fair share of Japanese Hair Salons experiences in Toronto. My hair stylist at Muse Salon gave me one of the most relaxing & longest head massages I’ve had in a while. I asked my stylist for a “bob” cut and to only have my hair shorten by 1-2 inches. She gave me her feedback and offered some suggestions which I liked.
Less than an hour later, voila! I had a “bob” cut whilst only having my hair shortened by 1-2 inches. I asked for my bangs to be trimmed ever so slightly so they don’t appear as thick and heavy. I quite enjoyed my overall experience at Muse Salon and am loving the result of this cut =)
With 3 restaurants currently in Vancouver, Ebisu has decided to branch off their popular Izakaya chain to their first ever location in Toronto. Ebisu also translated as Yebisu is the fisherman god of fortune and good luck. This group of Japanese restaurants belong to the Kamei Royale Restaurant Group established over 40 years ago by Toshiaki Masuda. Ebisu has a trendy modern design with large high definition and projection Tvs.
Ebisu’s location on Queen West sets the perfect ambiance for occasions such as quick business lunches, intimate dinners, large parties (with larger tables at the back of the restaurant) and game night. Each Ebisu Restaurant location offers their unique and distinct concept and now being one of the widely accepted fusion style Japanese restaurants.
Ebisu is located at 204 Queen Street West. For more details, please visit their Facebook page: Ebisu on Queen
