    The front desk clerk was a bit offputting when I asked for a particular stylist.
    I tried this shop about a year ago and wasn't impressed.

    I had originally come here for a simple hair cut but the stylist , who my friend reccommended was so wonderful, I decided to get a colour ( for the first time ) as she noticed some greying that I had not and cut .

    She is definitely not a cheap chop shop type stylist, very professional and knows what she's doing,
    My friend recommended this girl, saying she will only get her hair done by her and also her daughter waits to
    see her whenever she is in town - from Edmonton !
    I choose this stylist, Amanda , based on a referral and was absolutely delighted, didn't let her pretty green hair influence me.
    I feel and look so much better now !
    I will definitely be back as long as she stays there !

    I went to get blond highlights in my hair on Friday night. I got into the chair around 5:45 about two hours later she finally finished foiling my hair, with the help of another stylist. After my hair was washed, I went to the chair and the stylist started blow drying my hair. After she had blow dried a quarter of my hair, I realised that she had not given me blond highlights but rather GREY ones. I almost cried, once she saw my face she realised that it was not what I wanted and she put toner in my hair. After the toner was rinsed out it was 9:10 and the place closes at 9. She quickly blow dried my hair and I notice that my hair was pretty much what I started with apart from a HUGE gold blob right on top of my head. I told her I was not satisfied and she told me to come back tomorrow to try and get it fixed. I paid $150 dollars for a blob of gold on top of my head. I left the salon at 9:35, which meant I had sat there for 4 hours to get almost nothing done to my hair. The next day I came back, explained what had happened to the Manager and she said we will get you a senior specialist to redo your hair until it is what you want. A different stylist brought me to a seat, turns out it was the chair of the SAME stylist I had the day before and she redid my hair. It took another hour and a half, and now my hair has 4 different shades of blond/white when I had original asked for one shade of blonde. After I was done, I asked for a breakdown of what I paid for because I did not think it was reasonable to get charged that amount for everything that happened to me. The manager told me, even after I had threatened to put bad reviews everywhere and to tell everyone I know not to come back to this salon, did NOTHING! No credit, no discount. I definitely do NOT recommend this place to anyone!!
