Grateful Head

Posted by Robyn Urback / Posted on October 8, 2011

Grateful HeadGrateful Head has held strong over the last few years as a Toronto salon with one of the best names around. And as long as I've been heading there for the occasional trim or shakeup, I've known it to be a business wholly faithful to its Dundas West digs.

Needless to say, then, I was a little surprised to hear Grateful Head had picked up shop after five and a half years and moved over to Roncesvalles Ave. So I stopped by the new salon at Roncesvalles and High Park to chat with owner Lysa Fina about the move.

Grateful Head"The situation was sticky," she tells me as we settle on the window seat, overlooking the already bustling salon. Opened just a few days ago, Grateful Head is already having trouble fitting in their curious new Roncy customers along with loyal old clientele. "There were landlord issues, the building was falling apart, legal stuff," she continues. "We had to move."

Grateful HeadLysa was looking to move the business somewhere nearby, still in the Dundas West community, but she stumbled upon this spot on Roncesvalles and thought she'd jump on the opportunity. "There was nothing here," she says, pulling out her laptop, flipping through pictures of the original space. Unoccupied for over 20 years, I can see that the walls were literally falling off the foundation, and a lone toilet sitting near the back conveyed a certain level of hopelessness. Though Lysa obviously didn't see it that way.

"It took 13 weeks," she says, "and it was me and my friends--the staff--here doing the demo ourselves before we hired a contractor."

Grateful HeadThe space has been remarkably redone, in typical Grateful Head style. Textured wallpaper on one wall, a rough, rustic finish on the other. And the back paper--the pièce de résistance, in my opinion--boasts small black skulls, indiscernible from the front entrance. The vibe is continued right through to the bathroom, which carries a fiery red glow inspired by a picture of a woman-arachnid hybrid framed and featured on the wall.

"We wanted rock and roll royalty," Lysa says, "and I think we got it."

Grateful HeadUnlike the old Grateful Head space, this salon won't be hosting regular art shows. ("The hair will be the art here," Lysa says.") But it has dedicated a nook for staff art (including Lysa's albums) and will be hosting a CNIB fundraiser in 2012.

"We're still who we were," Lysa says as we head back to the front. "I refused to cut any staff."

Grateful HeadAnd the reception? "Very, very, very enthusiastic," she says. "People have been so welcoming. It's lovely."

I work at Grateful head... and I don't drink on week days so no hang overs from me. Ha ha ha ha ha. I'm sorry you had a bad experience Judy, I've defiantly experienced more smiles than frowns walking out the door of the salon, especially from Lysa, but sometimes there are rough mornings.

Not only the greatest name for a salon on this planet, but a great experience in every way!!! Stacy has been cutting my (curly) locks for ages...always a great cut...Lysa is as talented with the scissors, as she is beautiful...every person that works there are always happy to see me when I walk in...the femme fatales that work there are quite pleasing on the eyes...and on top of all this, great atmosphere, great chat, great decor...Oh....and LOVE THE ART!!!

Went to this place after reading the good review on here and I definitely enjoyed it and will be getting my hair cut here again and again. Staff are friendly and the place has a great, relaxing vibe. To the person above, I believe men's cuts are around $40 (from what I heard from the guy paying for his cut before me).

I had my haircut here by Lysa and I felt like she was out to lunch. She looked scattered and there was nothing but distraction for her. When trying to style my cut the next day I found it was too long on one side and to choppy on the other and I could not style it to save my life. For the price I was not happy at all which is too bad because it is so close to home.

I wish I'd read these reviews before Lysa took the scissors to my head. It's a terrible haircut - she didn't do the one thing I asked her to and it looks ridiculous. Now I have to throw bad money after good to get someone to fix it.

I went to see Shaunessy (sp?) about a month ago. Yes, I asked for a junior stylist, as I am on a budget, but really the girl's hand were shaking so bad I could see it. Nice girl, potentially good talent but probably needs to practice or get some more sleep or something. Anyhow paid $45 plus tax for the cut and my boyfriend had to fix my crooked bangs when I got home.
Guess I will keep looking for that cool, talented, affordable hair stylist in this city. Surely there must be someone out there???

Because another salon f’d-up my appointment, I decided on a whim to try Grateful Head.

Wrong move.

I cannot recall the stylists’ name (perhaps I’ve blocked it out of my memory), but no proper cutting technique was invovled. I felt like my wet hair was being hacked at…I had to fix my crooked bangs myself immediately afterwars, at home…and who blows-out straight hair with a round brush?! Unfriendly receptionist. I regret spending more money on the place and purchasing my shampoo there.

It’s only been a couple of weeks since having my haircut and I feel like I need to have it cut again.

Forget this place.

after going to about 5 different salons, including GLAM (they were great at first, but my last haircut there was so bad I cried when I got home), I tried TGH. The price originally put me off of, but after I finished getting my hair cut from Jen Kim, I seriously would have paid double. What a change from my last cut at GLAM. Jen used four or five different tools, from the regular scissors, to the razor, to thinning sheers, and did exactly what I wanted. She spent a ton of time with me, and gave me an excellent all over cut with attitude. Cutting my hair isn't easy as it is incredibly thick and short, so if done incorrectly my head looks like a big ball, but Jen knew EXACTLY what to do with it, even with the very minimal direction I gave her.
It was about 75 bucks, before tip, but it was worth every cent. It's two months later now and I still love it. Can't wait to make my next appointment! Highly recommended.

I don't know why anyone would pay $45 for a haircut that can just as easily be done by a crack head in the park for free. I don't trust these people, especially not the owner. This place will not last.

I had my hair cut a few weeks ago here and I have to say it's probably the WORST haircut I've ever had in my life. To top it off, when I (nicely)explained to my hairstylist that I wasn't quite happy about it, she gave ME attitude! I was her last appointment of the day and she apparently had dinner plans afterwards because she had one of her girlfriends waiting for her in the reception area. She was more concerned about hurrying me out of her chair than taking a minute to answer a few questions I had about hair product I was possibly interested in buying.
The topper though was when she was in mid-sentence with me and she rudely answered her blackberry and walked out of the room to take the call. She never even came back!!
Will never go back to this place again.

I wish I had read these comments before my appointment.

I am not at ALL pleased with my hair cut. The stylist did NOT listen to what I wanted to do with my hair, instead claiming "she knew what would look cute" for me. She didn't ask me ANY questions about what look I was going for, instead picking on things about my hair that she thought "wasn't doing me any favors" (ie. the color.. my hair is BROWN?!)
I highly doubt I'll be making another appointment there.

Worst!!
I was a dedicated customer of Lysas for a long long time and the treatment got worse and worse. She is always pretentious and stressed and complaining about her staff, bragging about shallow things that dont matter and making empty promises. Totally unprofessional. Prices went up massively since my first cut. First cut was $40, the last time I went they charged me $80 for a trim!! wtf! That same (last) time I got a consultation from a colorist who stank so bad like booze and lack of bathing I felt like I was sitting next to one of those smelly dudes on the ttc. Dude seriously smelled like he drank all night and stumbled to work. Not exaggerating.
dont bother, they are good the fist time and then fall apart after that.

Jen Kim is amazing! Since I moved to the city I was looking for a good haircut for my thick straight hair. I wanted something little more edgy too. Jen knew exactly what would work for me. It has been the best haircut for the shape of my face. Pricey but worth it. She is funny, friendly and just plain nice. I have been going there for a few times now. I do not know about the other stylists but anytime I have been there the receptionist and other staff have been nothing but nice.

I went in today and asked how much it would be to get my bangs trimmed. And they said free, to my delight. So right then and there girl cam out and asked what I wanted. I told her, and she proceeded to butcher my bangs, super uneven, and faaaar too shot. The style is not at all what I asked for. They are awful. And now I just have to wait for them to grow out to fix them. If you don't want to take the time to cut people bangs properly for free, then charge 10$. I wouldve gladly paid for a nice friendly stylist to help me out. I will never go back.

I went here for the first time yesterday and stacy was my stylist. I told her what I wanted done (however vague I may have been)and she did it. I was amazed. A hair dresser that actually listened and sent me home with something I was happy with, for a reasonable price! I was worried when I had read some of the other reviews that this place would have been too rocker-ish for me or unprofessional. But it was completely the opposite, it was clean, the staff were all friendly, they played unoffending rock music and were highly skilled. I think this could be the beginning of a beautiful relationship... thanks!

Has anyone here heard of Noush at Salon Piaff near yonge and bloor? A few of my co-workers went together last week to get their hair done and they came back looking gorgeous. They recommended I see Noush so I most likely will but was also wondering if anyone else had feedback? They were saying she's really popular in Toronto so I'm wondering if I need to book a few days or maybe a week ahead? Hopefully someone has some feedback.

Ever since I moved to Barrie it's a little too far for me to drive downtown but until now I still can't find anyone who works the same magic on my hair. On a side note if anyone knows a great stylist in Barrie please post and let me know. Until then I'll only be seeing my fav stylist ever like once a year :(

Great cuts, if not somewhat inconsistent.. But seriously, prices keep going up every single time I go, and have now risen to unacceptable and actually pretty offensive proportions. Last time I left feeling pretty ripped off, having been charged $10 more than a few months prior with the same cutter. which then was $6 more, and so on. What started as a great deal, has become laughable. Manhy other places to go, no doubt!

Hey Allie,
I'm so so sorry, we've been in a battle for the email address that's on our site (it's a long story) and we don't currently have any way to look into it or have it taken off. Any inquiries about services in the salon, stylists, hours etc can be sent to me ( jessica.upton@gmail.com ) and I'll be happy to reply. Also, though we aren't open Sundays, we are open Saturdays and Mondays as well as extended hours throughout the week to hopefully fill in for our one day of rest. We are a small staff whom for the most part are involved in the Toronto music scene and play a lot of Saturday night shows so in order to have a creative balance (and something to talk about during the week) we've chosen Sunday to not burn out.
Thanks for checking us out even if it didn't end up working for you.
-Jesse Crowe, GH.

There appears to be many poor reviews of this place on this article, but my experience with the place was nothing less than great. I hadn't had my hair cut professionally in about 7 years, after being scared off by so many terrible cuts in the past. I decided to give this place a try and Stacy (Stray, the male) gave me the ONLY professional hair cut I've ever been satisfied with in my life. I'll be going back for another next week :)

I can't speak to the quality of their haircuts, but I do have an issue with the assertion that the space had been empty for 20 years. That might have been true of the restaurant space next door, but Venus Florists was doing business in what is now Grateful Head's space until a few years ago. I lived around the corner for years, and got a look in at the space earlier this year when it was sold:

I am not looking for decor or smile (it would not hurt) I only want a good haircut that will suit my face. A stylist that knows about facial features and will be honest enough to say " Lady! what you want will not suit you" or something like that. I don't necessarily need to walk out with a cut. Even if you say "let it grow for now" would be helpful, then I will comeback for more.

I had my hair cut there for the first time last week, by Emily. I have very tricky hair because while it's fine, there is a ton of it and to further complicate things, some of it is wavy and some of it is curly. From booking the appointment to the actual hair cut, everyone at the salon I dealt with was fabulous. The person who took my initial call asked what kind of hair I had so she could match me with the most appropriate stylist.

When I arrived, Emily was attentive and personable - consulted with me about my hair and what I was hoping to achieve. The cut she gave me was awesome from the get-go... no having to wait a week or two for some out growth (which is usually the case with other stylists I've gone to).

I will undoubtedly return for my next cut - and am thrilled Grateful Head is now part of the Roncy neighbourhood.

I tried Salon 96 and Greatful head........ then somebody told me about Tangerine Salon...If you have tried these salons and not tried Tangerine up the street you are seriously missing out. Its on the second floor, corner of Neepawa, and Roncesvalles
The Hidden Gem of Roncesvalles. Check out their website for the number.

Please dont take my word for it, try them all, I am sure you will Love Tangerine Salon.
Way Nicer people, way better pricing and way more talented. You will feel good inside and out.

Everybody that I know that compared these salons Tangerine is by far the Best Choice!!!

I disagree re. Salon 96. I was not at all happy with my cut from there and did not return.
BUT I just tried Jen Kim and really like the cut. Not the best I've ever had, but for the price (why are you people complaining about $70 for a haircut...move to the burbs!) I think it's very good. She's lovely, too.

They had to close down on Dundas because they run out off prople to scam. I have asked 70$ for just a cut. And that wasn't enough they asked cash. The guy who cut my hair looked like a crackhead. A man's cut this much money, I wish I have asked how much before I sit down. What a scam. Soon they will run away to a new location to scam people elsewhere.

Wondering why there are no listing of your stylist, background /experience , price listing, type of services provided. Every site only has pictures of the salon

I agree with Sandra. Emily was the best part of Grateful Head. Does anyone know where she went?

I have gone here twice, and have received the best haircuts I have ever had. Stacy Fitz is awesome, so much attention and care is paid to you and your hair. Not sure what everyone is complaining about, it really is a great place.

The WORST haircut ever!!! I went in to have the length taken up a few inches and my layers tidied. What I ended up with was one side an inch longer than the other and huge gaps in the layers.

This was done by a senior stylist for $80 and needed to be fixed by someone with some talent for another $100. Needless to say, I will never return to this salon nor recommend it to others.

that's not a scam. you didn't ask their price before accepting their service. your fault entirely.

Terrible, why is this number one. The manager seemed disinterested in speaking with me, and the place stunk - they smoke in it after hours. They may have been good back in the day. But they are overpriced, and half the stylist have shabby hair to begin with. Wil

I walked in to inquire about setting up a haircut and was asked to wait by the receptionist/owner which was fine. But when one of the stylists tried to help me, the receptionist/owner interrupted us and scolded me for talking to her. She was so rude I was taken aback and promptly walked out. I can safely say I will never step foot in there again.

Thanks for revealing your ideas. I'd personally also like to convey that video games have been ever before evolving. Technology advances and inventions have aided create practical and enjoyable games. These entertainment games were not actually sensible when the concept was being used. Just like other styles of technological innovation, video games as well have had to grow by way of many generations. This is testimony on the fast continuing development of video games.

no matter which salon do NOT ever have a haircut in toronto, period. toronto is worse place than albania.

I now cut my own hair from 2006 i.e. last 7 yrs. igt is not like I would have in London England but it is better than ANYTHING in shyte of town.

In London England and in Europe in general people are born with the aptitude to do a good haircut. Here nobody cares so everybody produces shyte after shyte after shyte. there are no schools for haircut like in Europe. In Europe you go full 4 years to school for haircutting. in rotonto mudjiburonto any jerk can proclaim he is art director IV and destroy your hair.

I wonder how nobody killed any hairstylist in rotonto yet after yet another bad haircut????

Shelley,
Noush is an inexperienced and distracted hairdresser. She couldn't understand the shade I was asking for, and made it very reddish tone which I can't stand. She kept talking to the other customers while cutting my hair and I was very anxious she wouldn't mess up my hair. She kept running to the front desk to receive payments and left my colour on past the time, and kept interrupting my hairdrying. It was a very stressful session for me, generally I find salon experiences relaxing.
One last thing, I had gone to another salon next to Noush's by error, and they told me she was working across and Thank God for that this salon owner said. Mind you, she is a nice person but still needs more experience.

I used to get my curly hair cut by Jen Kim and agree that she is amazing. Unfortunately she moved to Berlin. I got a haircut from Lisa and it was one of the worst of my life. Still looking for a new hairstylist.

I was a semi-dedicated client of Lysa's, but the last time I went back, she didn't remember who I was. To add insult to injury, she announced that she was 'no longer booking appointments with non-regulars,' and then proceeded to refer to her staff as 'dogs.' No thanks!
