Hair salons in OTTAWA

I know this is a swap board but I didnt know where else to write. Does anybody know anywhere in Ottawa, Ontario where I can get my curly hair cut well, it is very thick,?

I've been wondering the same thing. I have shoulder length curly hair.

I was suggested First choice haircutters on ogilvie. Apparently one of the girls there deals a lot with naturally curly hair. She's also a teacher in an estetics program out in the gloucester centre.

I might be moving up there next year. Is there anywhere that could handle even my hair (extremely thick 3c-4a)?

I don't know if you consider Kanata too out of the way, but I had my hair trimmed a few months ago at Zu Hair Design and it looked great. In fact one week after my cut, a fellow 3B stranger actually came up to me and asked me where I get my hair cut! PM me if you want the address.

I am also looking for a salon in ottawa to cut my cork screw curl, I am very fussy on who cuts my hair, still haven't found someone I like. Any suggestions would be great.

I recommend Mark at Salon Oxide. Its in an unmarked house on Sommerset and is just him, a partner and an assistant. He took a full half hour with me our first meeting over a glass of wine to talk about me, my style, my schedule, my needs, etc. His approach is much more free-form than by-the-book and he's great if you are looking for a much edgier style. He even recommend a product he didn't have because he thought it would be the best option for my hair. He is also an amazing colour tech. Difficult to get an appointment with, but worth the effort.

Sungoama, what's your hair type, if you dont mind me asking? I'm no longer living right in Ottawa, but I'm still willing to drive there to get my hair cut if it is worth it. I normally go to Sandy Hill Haircutter's on Osgood right by Ottawa U just to get trims. For $8.50 she could nicely layer the ends of my hair without butchering the curls. Cant go wrong at that price!

Hi There,
This was a really old posting, but just in case you are still looking ... I went onto the Curl Salons section of the website thinking that I would never find someone in Ottawa ... and was surprised to see a few recommendations. Hopefully the link works ... here it is:

The one I chose to go to was Renee at Boss Arts - 161 Laurier Ave. W. You park at Mariott Hotel right beside it ... and Boss Arts will pay for your parking. The prices are very reasonable for a downtown salon.

Renee has beautiful curly hair herself. I made an appointment for a consultation (free) and ended up getting it cut the same day.

Renee cuts your hair dry. She took a lot of time to look at my hair and speak to me about what I wanted / what I liked / didn't like, etc. She looks at the way your hair falls and then cuts it.

I would highly recommend her to anyone with curly hair.

Years after the original post, if someone's still looking:

I just got my hair cut (drastically, I dropped from mid-back to above the shoulder) by a wonderful lady at the Hair Co-op on Bank Street. It's looking great, and she's great at taking terrible, uncertain descriptions and making them work. And it's fairly cheap, too - I mean, at $40 a cut, there's nothing to complain about.

The only thing is, if anyone's looking at this, since the place works as a co-op, every stylist is separate. You have to ask specifically for her, or else you might end up with that one woman with something around 10 negative reviews. So if you're still looking for a reasonably-priced curly cut, call the hair co-op and ask for Caroline. My jewfro 2b hair is looking beautiful thanks to her.
