When Rachelle used to work at Le Spa I always walked away with amazing hair. She'd do a colour, highlight, and cut and it would turn out beautifully. Unfortunately, she left and now only works out of her home. I ended up staying with Le Spa and had some pretty horrifying experiences. Went in with purple hair, asked to have the most of the length cut off, chose a rather artistic cut, walked out with a chinlength bob, unattractive bangs, and slightly purple light brown hair (I did like the colour...). Next went in for only a colour and trim, asked for a soft strawberry blonde, walked out with elmo red hair. Third time (I never learn), went in with hair that was a little raw from stripping the red out, asked to have it toned to a med-light brown, walked out with blackish green hair right before a family reunion (stripped it that night, left treatment on for 5 hours and managed to recover my hair somewhat on my own). Awful service, unskilled staff, overpriced, and treated my mom rudely when she went in for a haircut.
I am very picky about where I get my hair done, and living in Ottawa for 4 yrs, I have yet to find a spot that I really have had a great all around experience at. So I did a lot of research about what salon to go to before I chose Le Spa. And I am SOOO glad I chose to go there. Amy was amazing. I went in with a ton of very long hair that just hung there and left with thinned out layers that have so much movement and are so light it's just perfect. She did just what I wanted and offered her expertice to do just that much more. I really enjoyed the service, the salon is beautiful and everyone was super friendly. The price was pretty average for that style of salon. I would recommend this salon and Amy to anyone who asked :)
Le Spa is my ABSOLUTE favourite place to go to get my hair done. I have not let any other stylist touch my hair in over 4 years. It is located in a beautiful old home (I believe it's over 100 years old) that has been completely renovated. It is a very relaxing vibe and they always offer you a coffee or glass of wine while you're getting a service. Whether its for hair, nails, massage, or other spa service, Le Spa is THE place to go in Ottawa.
