Before Michael Kluthe opened his own salon he worked at another very exclusive salon on Bloor Street called. Caruso’s. I have never had a cheap hair cut in my life and twice a week looked forward to my time with Michael. Michael was a very interesting man who loved golfing in Bermuda and beautifully looked after all of his wealthy clients.
When I first moved to Ajijic, Lake Chapala I returned to Toronto at least once a year to see family and to go Michael Kluthe for a hair cut and color. Between these times I would cut my own hair and do my own color.
One day someone told me about Yoly’s in Ajijic, Lake Chapala locted in the Bugumbila Plaza on the carretara. Before then I had tried one or two places and when my hair came out steel grey (not at all what I was going for) I gave up and decided to stay with my once a year make-over in Toronto.
For some reason I decided to try Yoly’s as hope springs eternal and I still hoped I could fine someone here to my hair to my very specific requirements. The salon was bright and clean and the staff was very pleasant and eager to please.
Whenever my father, who was in his 80’s, would come to visit for several months to get out of the northern deep freeze I would take him to Yoly’s and they all made a huge fuss over him and took care of him beautifully. He loved going to Yoly’s and even though he did not understand Spanish would have spirited conversations with the girls.
I never thought I would be able to replace Michael and Lily but happily I did.
Yoly’s is a full service salon, with hair styling, color with the cap or foil, all types of manicures including acrylic and gel, pedicures, massages, various facials depending on your skin type, waxing and all services are carried out with warmth and attention to detail.
Yoly has won many awards which are displayed on her walls and is a dedicated professional who also updates her skills on a regular basis.
I am happier with my hair than I have ever been in my life. My rayos (streaks) are fantastic and I receive lots of compliments on them and my hair is even healthier than when I was much younger.
So I you think that you will not be able to find a salon comparable to the one you are leaving behind take heart in the fact that Yoly’s is a salon second to none except for the prices. I would never get out of Michael Kluthe’s for under $300.00 Cdn. This morning the cost at Yoly’s for a secado (blow-dry) manicure and pedicure was $28.00 mas or menos including tips.
You can sometimes get lucky and walk in without an appointment but I would recommend that you do have an appointment. The telephone # is 766-2260. The girls all speak some English and, of course, Yoly is fluent.
Give Yoly’s in Ajijic, Lake Chapala a call. You will be very happy you did.
