Flaunt Boutique

Posted by Staff / Posted on January 4, 2011

Flaunt BoutiqueFlaunt Boutique has the first website I've seen with a dynamic relighting dimmer switch -- a nod to the intentional lighting in the salon itself. Flaunt is a self-described "one-stop style bazaar", an "after hours hair boutique, style garage and hangout". Women's cuts range from $37-$100.

I adore Flaunt! I've been going here for nearly 3 years now, and I am in a seriously committed monogamous hair relationship with them! Kay is utterly amazing (she is the master of curly-hair hair cutting, color, everything), Jehn is a star (I looked like I stepped out of a magazine post-blow-out), and though I've never been to the others, they are so friendly & welcoming that I just love them anyways. Thank you, Flaunt!

There is NO better place than Flaunt! Ivan has been my "other" boyfriend for almost 16 years - and I would never step out on him! As a "pushing" 50 year old gramma....Flaunt makes me look and feel like a 35 year old hot mama! The staff are awesome - welcoming, friendly, happy - always so glad to see you. I look forward to going there every time I book an appointment - and according to my husband - too much! :) Nice bench - where'd you get it? LOL!

i had over a foot of my hair cut off. I had planned to donate it. I was nervous but set on doing it I met with Kay she talked me through what i could do with what was left of my long perfect hair. She gave me what i described and better.

Its been 2 weeks and my cut is still so manageable.

Such a great place with an amazing vibe! If you want a good cut and good people go here!

I have just moved into Leslieville from Yonge and St. Clair and I was introduced to Flaunt Boutique by a neighbor in my building. I have been going to Flaunt every time I can make an excuse to go there! I was nervous to let anyone except my long term colorist / stylist to touch my hair and I should not have been. I have spent the last few months getting awesome blowouts and an incredible cut from the owner Ivan.

My colorist / stylist, award renowned Adriana Balea has just moved to flaunt and I couldn't be more excited. I have never stuck with a hair stylist for more than a year of my life and I have been hers for 6 years now.

The atmosphere is amazing at Flaunt - who wouldn't love a glass of wine while having their hair done ?
Another convenience - they are open late enough to get your hair done after work.

I love watching clients leave the chairs at Flaunt - in their new oh so creative do's - one day I will get up the nerves to stray away from my long layered, highlighted hair.

Go to Flaunt - trust me - you will not regret it!

Oh .... And by the way I now have my mom, my brother, my fiancé and some of my friends traveling from all over Toronto to come here!!!!!

Yuppers...I'm Marianne's mom and I love Ivan at Flaunt! He's been helping me create my mother of the bride hair...with the help on their new colourist/ sytlist Adrienne...He also did an awesome job on my son who just cut off all his long hair... I'll just have to convince my hubby to get his locks cut their as well! A family affair for sure!

I went to Flaunt, true it is a good experience, my stylist Adriana was excellent and I'm delighted with my new colour and cut, however the price was excessive - $300. I would like to return but I have been to other hair salons in the area that are just as good for a fraction of the price.

Hi, I'm looking for a new hair stylist and I was reading the reviews bout Flaunt boutique. How much do they charge for a cut and how much do they charge for just a simple trim?

Kristen / July 19, 2012 at 01:27 pm
I had my hair done last night by Adriana. I am new to Toronto and their website caught my eye. Adriana spent time explaining to me cuts and styles my thick hair cannot pull off, what kind of products to use and told me to come in again and she would show me how to style my hair to wear it curly. She was so knowledgable and fabulous- I found my new salon and hair dresser. The complimentary wine is an added bonus :)
Michelle / July 25, 2012 at 09:23 am
I was at Flaunt a few days ago for a base colour and some highlights. Adrianna spent a total of 3 very enjoyable hours with me. Nice, stylish, and knowledgeable to boot! I was a little apprehensive before going, since many previous hair salon experiences taught me just how arrogant and dismissive hairstylists can be. Not so with Adrianna! She's so humble, and a complete colouring genius! She listened to what I wanted and didn't pressure me. Ladies, yes, it definitely costs a pretty penny. But I couldn't be happier with the end results and peace of mind. I'll definitely be going back in a few months for touch ups, and some more of their delicious complimentary beverages. I'm not sure about the rest of Flaunt, but Adrianna is definitely worth a first try.

went to Flaunt for the first time last Friday evening. Saw Adriana.She did colour and cut and helped me pick the perfect shade, it looks so natural - what I wanted. I have long hair and didn't want a major change, she cut it great. It has its shape back. She also talked to me about how to get my hair healthy again, and reccomended a great hair mask (pricey product) but well worth it. No pressure to buy, I wanted to get it. Will go back for sure. Price point for my services was actually less than I expected-bonus!
Joanna / November 23, 2012 at 08:40 pm
I just finished getting my hair cut tonight by Adriana and I'm in love! It was my first time at Flaunt and I couldn't be any happier with the cut Adriana gave me! She knew exactly what I was looking for without having to explain myself too much and she provided such great tips and insight about my hair and how to style it the way I want to! I have spent the last couple of years flip flopping between hair stylists in Yorkville and I can easily say I have found my permanent hair stylist!
Bobby / December 20, 2012 at 12:39 am
Went to Flaunt today for the first time and had Laura cut my hair am thrilled not only have I found a new hairstylist but have a great new haircut that I love! Have been looking for a new stylist for over a year now and have only had bad cuts and stylists that rush you out the door when the next apt shows. Not Laura she took the time with my cut to make sure everything was perfect, she also listened to what I asked of her to change my hairstyle completely. Am looking forward to booking my next apt with Laura when I get her to do my colour.
Marian / January 11, 2013 at 11:26 am
Adriana is the best. I am always thrilled by her work and wouldn't dream of going to another stylist. I recommend her very very very!!! highly.
Ryan / January 21, 2013 at 05:20 pm
Let me start off by saying how friendly, personable and professional the staff at Flaunt are! I had my first cut at Flaunt with a stylist by the name of Kelsie M. who was super patient with me and walked me through some ideas that would work for my type of hair. I had been looking for weeks-on-end for a stylist that would simply take a minute of their time to help me figure out a simple yet fashionable hair style that would work for me, and that is exactly what she did. As she began to cut my hair she walked me through everything she was doing and why she was doing it and it all made perfect sense. She even suggested various products I could use with my hair and explained the difference between each and every one of them. I have continued to get my haircuts from Kelsie at Flaunt and will continue to do so! 5 stars for the staff, atmosphere, professionalism, and end result!
ALEXIS / April 5, 2013 at 11:24 pm
I was a little skeptical, but after reading all the good comments I decided to go for it , and i would say it was the best decision ever , as soon as you come in you fell a good vibe and nice customer service , zero grumpy faces .
I decided to Kelsie cut my hair she took the time to explain to me which product was the best for my type of hair she gave some ideas and Im totally happy with her and my new hair cut too , since I was trying for a while to try a new style , She was really helpful , kind , she's awesome definitely i will come back .
Thumps up for Flaunt Boutique .
cristina / April 25, 2013 at 11:43 pm

Sylvia Kilgour / February 8, 2014 at 12:30 pm
I've known Adrianna for 7 years! She's the absolute best colorist and styler!! I will follow her the ends of the earth.... She's wonderful , she tunes into your personality and total being, she's smart, savvy and stylish. If your looking to look your absolute best... There's only one colorist and stylist in Toronto... It can only be Adrianna!!!

I have been to two hair salons listed here at BlogTO. They were good. Second better than the first one, but I still wasn't happy enough. After giving a try to Flaunt Boutique I ain’t looking any more. Adrian is the BEST hair stylist I have ever met. And by saying "the BEST" I mean THE BEST IN THE WORLD!!! I do not know what keeps me being so in love with her work (my hair): her shining personality, her unbelievable skills, her ability to know exactly what I want, her choice of colour for my hair, the combination of not pushing me too much but at the same time encouraging to try something new... Every time I leave Flaunt Boutique I feel like billion dollars. Even weeks after my appointments people stop me on the street asking where do I do my hair, and I am always happy to answer “Oh there is that incredible hairstylist at Flaunt Boutique…”
Monik / March 20, 2014 at 06:31 pm
I had a great experience at this salon! I read so many positive comments that I decided to give it a go...and I wasn't disappointed at all!

I had the pleasure to have Laura work on my hair and she was so nice, super helpful and explained so many things to me. We talked for a bit before she started my hair as she wanted to know what I liked and didn't like about my current hair so she could get an idea of what I want, etc.

I felt really welcomed, I was treated very nicely and was offered coffee/water! I was given many tips to help with my hair condition (very damaged due to colouring). I would definitely go back !

I hope this helps someone decide if they want to try out this salon!

I went to Flaunt today for a last minute hair cut. It's always such a hassle trying to find a good place that has room on the spur of the moment (my fault, I know!) but surprisingly, they were able to accommodate me! Everything about my experience was great. The receptionist on the phone was friendly, welcoming and professional. When I got there, I was blown away by how gorgeous the space is! It's a room I would really enjoy spending some serious time in. All the staff are very warm and helpful. Everything is very efficiently run. Efficiency always seems to be the thing that is sacrificed when you go to a boutique salon (or business in general, actually) but not here! Everyone was on the ball.

Most importantly, I really loved Kelsie and am so happy with the cut she gave me. She's the first stylist I've had in ages who really took the time to explain to me what kind of cut we were doing and how it would work with my hair type. I loved all the detail! It made me feel a lot more comfortable allowing someone to dive in and cut my hair for the first time. A first cut is always so terrifying! Practically speaking, the cut looked as good as it sounded. It's the first time I've really loved a hair cut in ages. I'm not fussy and I don't go home crying over a bad cut, I just rarely feel excited about it after it's done. This one was really lovely!

Thanks very much to Kelsie and staff for making my first experience so memorable. I'll be back for colour next time!

When my son, Matt Durant, was getting married I was invited by the bride to be, Danielle Squires, to join her, the bridesmaids and her Mum to get our hair done. We had a great time and our dos were great. Everyone came away pleased and feeling pretty yummy. Art work is awesome but I may be prejudiced!!
B.M / July 9, 2014 at 08:24 am
Adriana !you are amazing!!!! After so many bad experience with my color it is very hard to trust anyone .my last experience was a disaster ,I went to do an ombré and it turns awful .,so finally I decided to do a bit of research to find someone to fix my color ,and I found adriana .At the beginning I was a bit nervous but the way she was explaining how she will fix it ,with such confidence and encouragement ,I trusted her right the way .(I think she knew I was nervous lol) .At the end my hair looks amazing ,exactly how I wanted !!!.And by the way I didn't book for a blow dry ,but she took the time to blow dry my hair after.She make me feel like million bucks ! My hair never looked so good in so many years .THANK YOU ADRIANA !!for sure I will go back .
DZ / August 6, 2014 at 09:33 am
I have been going to see Adriana for over 2 years now and in this time have had every hair colour under the sun including strawberry blonde, brown/blonde ombre, red/blonde ombre, highlights, red. Even though each time I ask for something new and she if often dealing with complicated colours, she has always delivered and managed my expectations and I always leave very happy. She is such a talented colourist and worth every penny. And the most important part is that my hair is still super healthy. She also knows how attached I am to my length and I've never left in tears because too much hair has been chopped off. And on a personal note she's the most real stylists I've ever met. No fluff talk. Straight up amazing woman.

I have also heard fantastic things about Flaunt. But I am wondering: has anyone had an up do done there?
Carmen Grifferty / September 3, 2014 at 06:03 pm
I recently moved to Toronto and have been trying to find a real good hair dresser. My search is over. I was feeling really bored with my hair and wanted a drastic change. I read a number of excellent reviews regarding Flaunt and more particularly about Adriana.

I bit the bullet and scheduled a hair cut. I have to admit I was pretty nervous and was ready to bolt while I sat there and waited. I am so glad a didnt. Adriana totally listened to what I was looking for. I had a boring bob and now I have the cutest pixie cut. She is amazing. She also put a toner in my hair to tone down the yellow and it looks awesome.

She further took the time to show me how to style my new cut. I love her and I will definately go back. Thank you Adriana.
Laura / September 30, 2014 at 08:18 pm
I recently visited Flaunt Boutique for a cut and highlights by Senior stylist Adriana Balea. I have had many bad experiences in my day and am very particular about my hair. From the moment I met her I knew that my experience would be the best one yet. She was the sweetest woman and it was clear from the beginning that she truly cared about me..not just about the money. I have never loved my hair more. The highlights she gave me made my hair look natural and beautiful! I was nervous but she talked me through every step that she took and talking to her made my day. I wish that someone as talented as her could be more recognized for her amazing work. I have recommended Flaunt boutique to all my family and friends and I would encourage EVERYONE to try it out. I promise you will not be disappointed.
Kelly taphouse / April 29, 2015 at 12:51 pm
Adriana is hands down the best colourist/stylist I've ever had in this city! She has taken me from platinum, to a natural faded Balyage back to a warm summery blond again. We've even experimented with strawberry! She knows just by looking what will work and what won't work and has so much pride in her work. She's incredibly talented and passion for her work and won't compromise. You will not be disappointed!!!

How much does Flaunt charge approximately for a full colouring session?
