I've been going to Haartek Salon for about 6 years and I have been seeing OLIVIA the whole time !!!! Olivia is all around talented. I have long hair and when she cuts my hair she never cuts more than needed!!! She also colours my hair, she's done dark and light colours on me and comes out on point.
Olivia is incredibly professional and classy.
She tailors her hair and color expertise to each client- I was incredibly impressed with all of her suggestions each time I have had the pleasure of her services.
The best colorist and best stylist I have ever had!
Olivia is absolutely the most professional, personable and talented stylist out there. I trust no one else with my hair and have been a faithful and loyal customer of hers for years and always walk away happy after each visit. If you are looking for a wonderful cut, colour or blow dry then I highly recommend you book an appointment with her.
This place feels like home. I've been seeing Olivia at Haartek for years now, and I've never been more pleased with a salon experience before in my life. She is a master at both short and long cuts, completely revolutionizing how I style and care for my hair. The stylists at this salon truly care about their work and clients, and the atmosphere is INCREDIBLE. So welcoming, kind, beautiful and fresh. Not to mention the hot drinks and scalp massage, free with every cut! I'll be a client of theirs for years to come. You truly must visit.

Best kept secret in the city!!! Great service and reasonable prices. Always make me feel very comfortable and friendly! High end service without feeling uncomfortable. Love this place. A true gem!!!!
I've been going to this salon for 17 years now. My first hair stylist was really the only one that knew how to style my hair. After she left, I continued to go because the people were friendly, it was convenient for me, and the other stylist were pretty good. Then maybe 3-4 yrs ago, they switched management. I still continued to go as my stylist was still there, the old manager was working part time, and the new manager was a stylist previously. Hence to say I was very disappointed when I came in to do my hair on my wedding day, and they charged me for bringing in my makeup artist to use their space. It's not like they have their own make up artist that would be losing business or anything. It's just poor customer service. Not only have I been a loyal customer for 17 years, but I've referred so many people over that time. Needless to say I will not be recommending this place anymore. My wedding will also be featured in a highly read wedding magazine which I will NOT be giving a plug to this salon. There are so many other salons in the Toronto area where the stylists are on trend and the service is 10x better, for a lot less! Hope the $75 was worth it Haartek!
I don't know why I do this but I can be rather 'impulsive' with my hair and what I do to it. The morning that I decided to go here, I had seen a girl wearing a salon apron picking up a muffin in the grocery store below the salon (its in the Manulife center). Her hair was soooo pretty so I thought 'let me call this salon and see if they have any time for me to get my hair colored'. Well, they did have time for me but not with the stylist whom I had seen in the store.
I showed up and had to wait 20 minutes for my stylist-yikes. This is your standard hair salon-blow dryers going, women in foils and under dryers. Nothing glam, that's for sure. I finally met my stylist and explained to her that I had seen this other stylist this morning and loved her hair and could she do something similar. She said, 'You're in luck-I do her hair'. GREAT!
I don't think I have ever had such a thorough colour consult in my entire life. This girl (her name is Laura by the way) took so much time to explain colour combinations to me. I showed her what I wanted and explained my daily routine and we ended up coming to a compromise about what would look good (and not crazy) in my hair and why. Totally cancelled out the 20 minute wait complaint! She really took time with my hair and did a wonderful job on it. I didn't get a cut but she did shape my bangs!!
Salons are a dime a dozen here and I am really grateful that there are some stylists out there that will sit and take the time to make sure they 'get it right'. I am most definitely going back for a cut and she even told me to come back for touch ups. This girl took me from washed out blonde to a beautiful auburn with copper highlights. I have gotten a ton of compliments and it just warms up my whole face. Beautiful!
