When you walk through the doors at Amado Salon, you’ll notice the excitement, the allure and the welcoming atmosphere. And when you leave, you’ll be walking out with a brand-new confident you — ready to take on the world with absolutely gorgeous results every time.
Amado Salon puts a little bit of magic into everything it does. A staple in the Vaughan area for almost 10 years, the salon has built up loyalty because of the care and detail that its staff takes with everyone who comes into the salon. Now it’s better than ever with a new central location — it’s an uptown salon with a downtown feel.
A 20-year veteran in the hair industry and an award-winning stylist and colourist, Robert Amado is passionate about hair. He knows how important it is to start with the right products, including Goldwell and KMS product lines. “Goldwell develops products to prolong the life of hair colour and to keep the integrity of the hair,” says Amado. “KMS has a unique factor in that they fuse science and nature.”
One thing that Amado gets is the power of social media. “Instagram speaks to people through pictures, and customers come in with pictures in their hand … so it kind of links the two worlds together,” he says. Countless 5-star Google reviews like, “Amado Salon is nothing short of top notch — from the team to the service to the final product!” say it all.
Although even some Hollywood celebs are sporting Amado’s work, every client gets star treatment. “Our clients make us who we are,” says Amado. “I treat everyone with respect, dignity and love; there is no other way.” In fact, Amado doesn’t look at his clients as clients, really. “I’ve made them my friends. I’ve instilled my trust in everyone, and every client knows that I’ll go that extra mile for them — I’ve built relationships that are strong, not just for today, but for years to come,” he adds.
In addition, you can’t have a great salon without great staff: the people at Amado Salon make it a remarkable place. “The staff plays a huge role. They all have different elements, which makes it a unique relationship between all of us, making it a family, not a team,” says Amado, who looks for special people when someone wants to work at the salon. “I can teach skills, but I can’t teach personality and I can’t teach character, so those are the biggest factors when I’m looking for someone to work with us.”
“Amado means to be loved, and if everyone already likes what we’re doing today, they’re going to love what the future has to hold,” says Amado.
