Great little salon. I have been there a couple of times already and every time I've been more than happy with the end result. Everyone is very polite and professional. My stylist today was Eric. He had the hard task of fixing my previous haircut, which was simply terrible and he did no disappoint. He was very helpful in choosing a better style for my hair and the execution was spot on. I have... more

I haven't cut my hair for over a year (personal reason) and decided to finally make a change. I booked an appointment with Anna and cut my hair from 'touching butt' length to shoulder length. Anna gave useful suggestions was good. The part that got me upset was paying my bills. Because I had super long hair and I know certain places require extra fee for this, so when I called to make... more

I love Hair Story! This has been my (and many others I've introduced it to) go-to place since I first discovered this place many years back. Good pricing + good service + quality haircuts = hidden gem! My go-to stylist is Naoki who treats your hair like you're a royalty! I once had a my hair colored here but the color was not what i expected - they offered a free do-over - and that was really... more

I came in on a Thursday afternoon and asked how long the wait was. The receptionist told me 15-20 minutes....ended up waiting for 40 minutes. Anna gave me a quick trim to fix my bad last haircut and I was actually really happy with the result. She still charged me the full $34+tip, though. It was a quick haircut but a good one, so I guess I don't have much to complain about other than the wait... more

Awesome!!! The guy with a cool cow boy belt that holds lots of scissors and combs cut my hair. I told him that I was about to meet my girlfriend's father the next day, and he really took extra caution when cutting my hair! Trimmed my hair shorter layer by layer instead of just using a trimmer and cut my hair short upfront which I really hate. I paid $19 for men's cut including hair wash.

Dropped in on a Monday after work for a quick trim and wound up with one of the best cuts I've had in years. Saleisha took me right away and smiled the whole time. I had a dry cut and style and was in and out just under a half hour. Though she worked quickly, she took the time to make sure my lines were even and gave me some much needed texture and shaping. I walked out looking like I'd paid... more

Disappointed, maybe I was unlucky one to have a not really good service hairstylist from this place, she was rushing me out because more customers come in. Trim hair and not fixing my bang less than 5 mins. Feeling something dishonest as well. Paying $35 + tax to make my day sad, this was the first time visit and I will NOT come again.

Pretty okay; I've been a couple times because I live a 5 min walk away. However I always get an inconsistent cut. Lately they've been choppy and blunt end, which I don't ask for. Price is okay too.

I have been here few times for hair cut. It has always been good experience. Literally no wait time, even without an appointment. $15 for a haircut, that too in downtown. I like that. :) I even tried out pedi and mani for $40+taxes. Henna the girl who attended to me was really good at pedi and mani.

Wanting to try something new instead of my regular salon, I opted for Hair Story to get some trimming done since I pass by them a lot whenever I trek to College area.

HAIRCUT:
I did a walk-in and was told I'd receive a 30-min wait which was really only about 10. My hairstylist was Anna. She was friendly and we exchanged a few words but she was focused on my hair which is A-OK. (They will ask... more

I needed a cut so I went to Hair Story one morning after reading some Yelp reviews (no appointment - I was a walk-in and I was seen right away). I was very satisfied! $40 including tip for cut and style. Ali was my stylist; highly recommend. I will be back!

Went recently to this place seeing that it is popular on yelp. Haircut for men cost $15 plus tax . I didn't have to wait at all, the employees are nice , one took my jacket and bag and returned it once my cut was done . Hair was washed cut and styled. It felt like the hair cutter was in a rush though. She cut it so quick it took like 10 minutes . She just asked how I wanted my sides and the... more

This has to be my Go to Place for hair cut now on. Michelle is the owner and she knows what her client wants. She is efficient and to give you a hairstyle you desire is effortless for her!
The price is so affordable and the result is damn pleasing! :D

This is my go-to place for trims! I heard about this Korean salon from a few friends and I love it there.

Michelle is the owner and she's excellent. She does exactly what I ask for--U-shape in the back, long layers, 1-2 inches off. If I'm feeling more adventurous, I'll flash her a picture of Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian or Megan Fox on my phone and she'll get the hairstyle down pat. For $40... more

The place was clean and friendly. You get what you pay for - it's really cheap considering it's in downtown Toronto. Don't expect an expert cut from these guys, but they do an OK job most of the time.

Went and got a fantastic wash and cut from Michelle! The cost is really low but the cut is great. They are very accommodating and Michelle especially made me feel very comfortable. She asked me if I were warm and turned on the AC immediately. I do recommend this place, its central, its a comfortable place, and its very non uppity in your face type place.

They do good haircuts for men. The price for men matches the usual mainstream chains and on top of that they actually wash/shampoo your hair with a nice little massage-like work too.

I was looking for an inexpensive hair salon on yelp and I felt good about this place from the positive reviews. I called and made an appointment on a week day. When i arrived, I waited maybe 10 minutes only. The hair salon is very spacious unlike other Korean hair salons. The staff attended to be right away when I arrived. The salon has a long couch for you to sit and wait comfortably. Overall,... more

Loved Brian here... But he left!!! (5-star if he was still there) Does anyone know where he's gone to?????
I'm so upset I've tried all sorts of salons & hairstylists & no one can get it right!!! Hailey was great but she left too! The turn over rate here is too high.
I now have a nightmare whenever I'm getting a haircut because I went back to Hairstory & tried some new lady who gave me the worst... more

I went here for the first time yesterday after reading some reviews. I had such a good time and I'm SO happy with my hair!! I went to go see Steven and he was an absolute professional. Great price, great service. I will tell friends and I will be back! :)

This is definitely a get-in, get-out place. The setting is as basic as it gets. I went for a haircut after 6p.m.. They didn't wash my hair, just spritzed my hair with a spray bottle and started chopping the second a "bangs? no bangs?" decision was made. My cut was done in 12 minutes, a guy cashed me out, an energetic "thank you!" and I was sent off.

It wasn't bad for $25, but I wondered... more

Clean efficient and affordable and the location isn't half bad. 15$ for men and they do accept VISA and MC. The person who cut my hair wasn't very talkative which is a good thing in my case. The Space is huge and I think i counted almost 10 chairs. They offer a shampoo but I declined as I prefer to shampoo and shower at home :)
Now for the music choice it covered some of the widest range I have... more

If you come here go to Brian or Steven. That's it. Everyone else there has butchered my hair.

Good friendly salon! Great prices and great cuts.

For a men's haircut I'd ask for Brian. I've been going to him for about 3 years now and he's always done a great job and is very personable.

Wow. My husband and I were both in desperate need of haircuts today. The girl who cut mine did a good enough job. I keep an incredibly basic cut so it's probably not hard to do. Too bad I apparently can't say the same for my husband. The guy who cut his hair did a terrible job. He likes it somewhat longer, but this guy completely butchered it. He left it WAY too short on the sides. It looked... more

Nice, I like it. Located along Yonge Street, I came here to get a men's haircut. They have really nice price for men $15. $25 for women.

It is a Korean hair salon with many staff ready to help serve you. They have Japanese style haircut books for people like me who don't know what they want.

It is was really simple.. the book I was going through has haircuts with colour-borders for short,... more

Ever since I went to this hair salon during my days at Ryerson, I've never looked back. Fantastic service from the staff! With guys wash, cut and style at $15, you can't go wrong at this standard price.

The atmosphere of the place is common for a Asian hair salon. Expect Korean/Japanese pop and North American top-40s in the background.

They have hair magazines for guys and girls. If you were... more

Okay, I have been a hair model for Paul Mitchell, Aveda and LOreal. I love this cute little Korean shop to maintain and upkeep those in between times. They spend so much time cutting your hair til you are satisfied and they got hiphop blaring too! And Japanese fashion magazines! Ask for Tina, she's is great!
