“CUT” above the rest! A guide to the Hair Salons and Barbers on The Drive.

A hairstylist once said… “People are very loyal to their hairstylist, at least until they do something wrong with your hair and then you have to look for another.” Which is the reason why there are so many of us!

Experiencing it personally, it may very well be the truth. We all know the painstaking task of finding not just the “perfect” groomer, but to also balance everything from a price we can afford regularly, right down to a convenient location. And then there are those important quirks we have…Like, how they massage our scalp, do they also colour, or are they easy or difficult to book, etc.

For those who have already found their hair-soul mate, much congrats to you and your mane. To those who are still searching for the holy-hair grail and who are almost at their splitting end, we have a breakdown of the beauty services on Commercial Drive. Hopefully, with them, resides the perfect hair artist for you.

Best of fun and finds!
