INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

Are you going to be in Vancouver for a while and are your bangs starting to get in the way? Finding a cheap place for both men and women to get your hair cut here can be quite difficult since there are a lot of options available, but they are usually way too expensive for just a simple hair cut.

One option that I have looked into several times now is, of course, Craigslist. People post advertisements on hair salons every day. There are always great deals available such as ‘two for the price of one’ or ‘bring a friend and the next haircut is for free’.. You need be very careful with scams when using this site though so make sure you are aware of that before you let someone come into contact with your hair with a pair of scissors!

FOR THE LADIES:

#1 –> Amanda – Hair stylist from home

Price list:

  • Blow-dry/style: $10-$15
  • Woman’s cut/style: $15-$20
  • Colour re-touch: $20-$25

  • Partial highlights: $30-$40
  • Full highlights: $40-$50

*all services include a blow-dry/style of your choice!*

For more information go to her advertisement on craigslist, give her a call or email her and set up an appointment if you are interested!

#2 –> Chura Hair Salon

If you want to go to a proper salon then another cheap option is in downtown; Chura Hair Salon.

To get your haircut it will only cost you CA$30 and or just CA$5 to get your bangs cut.

Toronto Dragon Boat Festival

The Event – Team Spirit At Its Very Best

The 22nd TELUS Toronto International Dragon Boat Race Festival promises a two-day fun-filled event that brings sports, team spirit and community spirit to Toronto Centre Island on June 19-20, 2010.

The Festival, which started in 1989, entered the international arena in 1993. From the humble beginning of only 27 teams participating in the first festival back in 1989, it has evolved to a much bigger operation over the past two decades.

Organized by the Toronto Chinese Business Association and the Toronto International Dragon Boat Race Festival, the Festival in 2010 will once again expect 180 to 200 teams with 5,000 athletes. Paddlers of different backgrounds from all over the world will take part in the ancient Chinese tradition and friendly competition.

In 2009, the Festival registered 8 teams of youth with physical and developmental challenges. The Festival was also graced by the cancer survivor terms from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Ontario Region, fundraising beneficiary of the Festival. After all, it’s not always about winning the cup. The team spirit, the message of hope and inclusiveness prevails throughout the Festival!

Once again this year, the Festival will welcome teams from all provinces across Canada, from the U.S., the Caribbean Islands, Europe and Asia.

In 2010, as the Festival celebrates its 22nd year, it promises to continue to be one of the most exciting summer events in Canada. It will juxtapose culture, water sport, exotic food with multi-cultural performances. In 2009, attendance at the Toronto International Dragon Boat Race Festival reached the 120,000 mark to make it one of the most popular summer festivals in Toronto.

Furthermore, the Festival values social responsibilities and has in the past raised funds for charities such as the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Breast Cancer Foundation and the SickKids Foundation.

Today, dragon boat racing is held globally. It is now an annual event held in over 40 countries. All around the world, far and wide, people have embraced this water sport and formed dragon boat racing clubs in their own countries.

The two most established Dragon Boat Race Festivals in Canada – Toronto and Vancouver – spearheaded the Dragon Boat Council of Canada, the national dragon boat organizing body in Canada. The mission of the Council is to work together to develop criteria and processes to select national dragon boat champions to represent Canada in International and World Championships.

Hope everyone in Toronto has a  great weekend!
