How Fuss Hair Studio Impresses Their Customers

“Can I get you a coffee or tea?” 

Like many salons, customers at Fuss Hair Studio in Toronto’s Leslieville are offered a drink when they arrive at the salon. By improving the quality of their coffee, Fuss has found that their fussy customers have noticed. 

Of course, people come to Fuss for the great cuts and colour treatments.  And a big part of why they return is because of the entire customer experience. It’s the chic environment, amazing scalp massage, friendly people, cool music - and the delicious Fuss Studio blend coffee from Sparkplug Coffee.
