“The atmosphere of the space is very inviting and friendly, but Elena is who keeps me coming back. I never come in with a plan – she knows exactly what I want/need. My last cut&colour had people feeding me compliments for months. Never thought I’d love my hair as much as I do now. Great company, great relationship, amazing stylist. Highly recommend. I tell all my clients/friends.”

“I have spent 7 years in Toronto looking for a new stylist – yesterday after reading such amazing reviews online – I called and booked an appointment. I had an appointment with Elena. I went in for a cut, ended up with the most amazing cut and colour I have had since living in Toronto. Not only is she above and beyond talented and knowledgeable with hair trends, techniques and colour selection… she is so friendly and approachable! 3 hours in her chair flew by! THANK YOU Elena!!!! I have been getting compliments all day!”

“I tried many salons since moving to the Yonge & Eglinton area 7 years ago but I was never happy with the results. My search was finally over when I found Runway. I see Angelo about every 4 weeks for a rotational range of services, including colour & touch-ups, highlights and cut & style. I am always very pleased with Angelo’s work, and with the products I purchase on Angelo’s recommendation. My teen-aged son and daughter are also regulars and we can also highly recommend the services of Elena and Kanamy (not sure of spelling). Rounding out the terrific team is Manuela (spelling?) at the front desk (and Angelo’s wife) who is always such a pleasure to deal with. Runway is a lovely and comfortable salon and I highly recommend Angelo and his team to even the pickiest clients. I originally tried the Salon for the sake of convenience but I’m quite certain that I would never go anywhere else–even if I move out of the neighbourhood.”

“I really love this place. Anytime I want to do anything with my hair, Elena does it perfectly every time – she’s VERY good at what she does, is a great listener and makes you feel very comfortable (ask for her!). She’ll also be honest and straightforward with you and will help you get what you’re paying for. I have been going there for over a year now and I feel like I know everyone there, like we’re all old friends. xo”

“The staff at Runway Hair Studio are very professional and friendly. They did a great job colouring, cutting and styling my hair and I was completely satisfied with the result.”

- Kathy Schneider

“I just love Angelo and staff at Runway! Excellent hairstylist and very professional and accomodating! He even had a second stylist work with him when I was in a hurry.”

- Lisa Boulton

“Angelo is my hero! After struggling with my increasingly curly, unruly hair I found Angelo. He suggested I consider straightening my hair and go for a whole new look. He straightened and coloured my hair last October and I’ve never looked back. I have had so many compliments. People tell me I look 10 years younger and I feel so much more stylish. The straightening made my hair healthier and I no longer have to wash my hair every day – a huge time saver! Angelo has a wonderful eye and when he suggests something you feel confident to make the change. I have recommended him to friends and they are very happy too! “

- Nadine Devereux

“I went to Runway Hair Studio for a haircut and subtle balayage colour, who booked in me for an appointment same day as my call, and the experience was wonderful. The Team at Runway Hair Studio are a very professional, yet close-knit, fun-loving, warm and friendly group of talent, which is rare to find. I arrived at my appointment about five minutes in, and was welcomed by Manuela who, with Angelo, looked after me throughout the entire process. I didn’t see Angelo until thirty minutes in or so, but given a busy and lively studio environment and being a Saturday, it was not unexpected as they take the time that is needed with their clients, which to me, was a positive aspect. Typically having multiple treatments or services done can block out a couple to a few hours, and for a person like myself with lots of long, dry, curly hair, it took a solid three and a half hours from the walk in to the walk out. Despite this, I would say it went by like a breeze as they were attentive and engaged and didn’t make the stay feel long or drawn out at all! In fact, it was actually fun getting to know them in the process. I would recommend planning your day around your appointment accordingly, and blocking out the time.

Angelo, the Owner/Artistic Director, really listened, from a technical and emotional point of view, to what I seeking in terms of level of “change of look” and the subtlety of colour and angling of the asymmetrical cut that I desired, while retaining *length*! He explained clearly what to expect and what not to expect in the result, and had the perfect balance of executing from his professional vision and my desired aspects. His special flare in cutting and colouring definitely showed through and I am very happy with the result! Manuela styled my hair with Angelo (it was a lot of hair to go through) and was caring, attentive and had the most gentle touch with my hair. Overall a great experience that I look forward to again in the near future in the regular! Thank you Runway, and see you soon! :)”
