I am giving this salon a 3, because the first time that I went to it, I loved it. I had Sarah as a stylist and she did a great job on my hair. I felt like I was in a hair commercial when I walked out. I found I didn't like the DevaCurl products they so heavily endorse, but nonetheless wanted to return to the salon because I still liked the cut. For once, I wasn't nervous about going to get my hair cut. I have always had very long hair and have trouble allowing people to cut it. But this time I wasn't worried. However, my second time in the store I had Noelle. She is a great lady- very nice, talkative, helpful...she even suggested products that I could use if it was a month when I couldn't afford Devacurl, which I thought was fabulous. However- I was very disappointed with my haircut. In fact, my mom called it the worst I've ever had (and she has spent a lot of time dealing with my hair when I was a kid so she knows what she is talking about). I specifically said I didn't want framing as I absolutely hate when I have short pieces of hair. Lo and behold, there was still framing done on my hair. Not only that- but it was completely uneven. One side was at least three inches shorter than the other. My hair was all choppy and it does not look good. I have been wearing it in a messy bun almost since then because I hate when it's down. The one uneven side kept falling out of the ponytail because it was too short. It's still only to about my shoulder (I got it cut in October) and I had specifically said that I couldn't stand when my hair was shorter than my shoulders- ANY part of my hair because it curls and looks ridiculous. Anyway, I still liked the service there- the friendliness, the atmosphere, etc. I should also mention that Noelle asked me to come back to check the cut but I was too afraid to go back and have more really short pieces be created to even it up. So that part is my fault for not going back. But I will be sure to ask for Sarah next time because I am too disappointed with the way my hair turned out this time. It will probably take me a long time to go back to get my hair cut again. I
Victoria is amazing! Not only did my hair look great after my cut/style, it actually behaved better for weeks afterwards. I am the worst type of curl client- bleach blonde hair, heat styling...the works. I walked out with a cut that complimented my poor tortured follicles & I learned some cool stuff about managing my specific type of curl. My favourite part of Ellenoire is that I didn't feel a shred of judgement from anyone that I encountered - pretty refreshing from a salon! Usually I have that awkward post-cut phase, because someone has razored my curls or given me weird layers that have to get used to, but not anymore...i'm totally hooked on how beautiful and MANAGEABLE my hair has become. THANK YOU VICTORIA!
I am a 47 yr old man who has been searching for a salon in the Hamilton area that would not just cut my hair an give me what was the trendiest style , but give me a cut that suits me an my life style. I have thick wavy hair and work out side for a living so I need something easy. ( I still want to look good ) Sarah has taken my mane of hair and cut it so well that even if I can not get to see her for a couple of months it still grows in looking great. I now will travel 3 hrs and arrange visiting family an getting my hair cut to come an see her. At the same time pick up some home made soap that does not make me smell like grandmas garden.
