hair salons

Check out hair salons that people have rated on this website. Personally I love DeBerardinis in Fairview mall. I was planning on rating the salon shortly!

Heard good things about Grateful Head

I 've never been there but my friend goes there and loves it. Apparently good prices too. I've lately been going to Michael Kluthe and my cuts are $55, which is pretty good compared for Toronto prices. But check out the reviews. I'm sure you'll find something :)

I have yet to find a hair salon

I haven't found one either. $55 is expensive! But I'm sure that also depends on the length of your hair.

and the level of stylist...

At De Berardinis, a junior stylist is 35, intermediate 45 and advanced 55 to start...then prices can go up based on hair length!

Hair Care

There's a place in Centrepoint Mall that I go to when I don't feel like going to my usual hair place in Woodbridge. They always cut my hair really well, I've never been dissatisfied/unhappy with how I looked leaving there, and they're surprisingly inexpensive - $25 for a woman's cut, wash and blowdry!
You don't need to make an appointment either, you can just walk in and they'll usually be able to cut your hair right away.

great price

Have you had them layer your hair or get wispy bangs? My fear with going less expensive sometimes is getting a cut where it looks like I am missing a layer or like someone cut my bangs too bluntly! Does anyone in particular there cut your hair or do you just go to whomever is free? Would you recommend a specific stylist there?

Certain stylist

I will usually go for for a specific stylist if I know a certain one is good. I used to be fussy about my hair, but now I really don't care as much. I think this happened when I cut it shorter. I cut it short and it looked alright, so now I'm not so much afraid :)

I think part of it is that when you don't cut your hair for a long time, you get attached to it, and then are less trusting to anyone with scissors! I think this goes for men as well, they do also if they had somewhat long hair have some sort of attachement to it (trust me, I know guys who refused to get haircuts for months on end!). Unless you cut your hair all the time, a haircut really is nothing. My boyfriend is in the army and has to cut his hair every 2-3 weeks! So really, it becomes less of a big deal if are used to it.

I have had many bad experiences with bad cuts before. Just remind yourself: Hair grows.

Re: great price

Usually I just go in and get it cut by whoever is available, but last time I was there I got it done by someone named either Palomira or Palmira (she wrote down her name for me but I can't really read it) and she did an excellent job. I don't know if she still works there, but one time I went just to get my hair blown dry and this woman with really long, thick curly hair did it, and I wasn't that impressed - so if she still works there, don't let her cut your hair!
When I get my hair cut, I usually do layers, and I think when I went there last time were the best layers I've ever gotten done. I've never had bangs done before, but before they cut your hair, the stylist always asks you want you want done and then tells you what they're going to do, so they always get your okay before going ahead with anything. Although they accept walk-ins, if you want someone specifically you can call ahead of time and make an appointment with a specific person.
Hope that helps!
