I went to the Vidal Sassoon salon last night and had a pretty good experience. It's much more posh than I thought it would be. There's a coat check and assistants to get you drinks and stuff...
My stylist was good, turns out she teaches at the school at the salon which made me feel much better about using her!
In terms of the cut, she gave me the professional opinion I wanted so desperately. She said that longer hair suited me best, but that I should go with my natural curls and enhance those. Normally I go for a straighter look, so this was different! She cut about 5-6 inches (!!) off, gave me more layers to add volume and movement, and reshaped the fringe at the front.
The best part I thought was that she took the time to show me a simple way to do my hair without too much effort.
I would recommend the Vidal Sassoon salon, if you've got the extra cash and can make it to Toronto! My cut cost me $85 tax, and I also purchased some chi-chi Kerastase product for $40 (ouch!) but I had a 15% off coupon so it wasn't quite as painful.
I definitely recommend Vidal Sassoon. The prices are a little pricey but you have a lot of stylists to choose from and the prices range. It's located in the ritzy area of Yorkville but the staff is really friendly and super trendy. I love the way the stylists cut hair because they are very technical. They give you great consultations for both colour and cut. Vidal does everything from everyday to very fashion forward styles. Tara coloured my hair and she was awesome. So friendly and easy-going. Karen cut my hair and she was hilarious and full of great tips! She really took the time to see what I wanted and considered my face shape and lifestyle. I will definitely be going back! I'm known as a salon hopper because I haven't really found anyone that I've really liked!
