First time getting my hair bleached and coloured at a salon. I chose Kamiya because I'd seen a lot of great reviews and photos on Yelp, and I was looking for a stylist familiar with Asian hair.

Tetsuo was my stylist. It took two visits: one for the cut and first round of bleach+toning, another for the second round of bleach and colour.

I adored the haircut (a cute pixie cut with shaved sides)... more

Great place!

What to expect from this place: top notch service, expert hair artist, quality products and a salon that leaves a client looking forward to their return.

My favourite part of the hair salon experience is the shampooing and conditioning. Its a double treat - amazing deep head/neck massage and awesome smelling hair products. I would pay just to get my hair washed.

Being my first time, I'm super happy with the results (simply love it!!)Take-san did a wonderful head massage and Hiro-san was super nice as he did my blue highlights. Being pampered with tea and hard candy, I couldn't ask for anything more. Took many selfies with Hiro-san. I really want to go back next time with friends

I had the best haircut of my life with Hiromi! I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my hair and although her English is not very good, she took the time to explain what she thought would look nice on me. She is very polite and professional. This is my new place to go from now on!

Just had a haircut with Hiromi. Extremely professional and courteous.

The service was great and I definitely got the value for money. She understood how my hair works and gave me the haircut I wanted. She will be cutting my hair from now on.

The haircut was $45 plus tax. I had my haircut with Yuki who was quiet but friendly. If you're a girl and you just want a simple trim I don't suggest going here because it's not worth the price. The service, wash and cut was just normal. I would not come here again unless it's for a more complicated cut.

Before i went to Yonge and Finch location, i was worried that if the stylists would be as good as ones in the downtown location.
My stylist was Hiroko and she was amazing!
I was kind of indecisive about my color. I wanted to get at least one shade lighter than what I had originally but worried it won't show that much differences.
Hiroko was really patient to discuss about it with me and showed... more

Kamiya does it again!

Here's a quick TL;DR of my last review: Spoke to Mai, hair stylist, who confidently broke down the steps she would need to take to help my hair, which literally had a black - platinum blonde ombre, to achieve an instagram worthy hair transformation.

The entire experience was fantastic, I honestly can't think of anything negative worth mentioning, Mai did a great job... more

Love the service. The hair stylists were very nice and professional. Tetsuo spend over 1h on my hair, which I only requested to have 1 inch cut + bangs, and restyled the body such that it looked amazing afterward. I was very impressed. Usually I go to Chura, but tried this salon because it is much closer to me.

So did not get a hair cut! We went on Saturday on spontaneous spur to cut our hair. We did not have appointments and were excited to try Kamiya. When we got to to the salon, there was no one to attend us. We stood there at the entrance for few minutes before we were told that they were fully booked. We kinda felt embarrassed since we stood there for quite a while. They didn't even say hi!! We... more

Will definitely recommend, Mai listened to my every request, and gave me lots of tips on how to style and care for my hair, the colour turned out exactly how I wanted, and I love the haircut immediately, (instead of having to get used to it in the following week). Glad my search for a new salon is over.

I've been there several times and I have recommended it to a lot of individuals and they have all left very satisfied.

The location is great, Its very easy for me to go there after work and get a quick cut. The facilities aren't the greatest, but they are moving soon to a new location on Victoria Secret.

Saeko knows about what to do with my hair colour, her cutting skill is really satisfying. I showed her some pictures of... more

After coming her for awhile I must say things have really, really changed. The prices went up (considerably) but I still found it hard to find a better salon for what I was paying until my latest hair dye.

Following that, I had showed some pictures of the style I wanted and the man said he was unable to do it (uhhh). At this... more

I have been to this salon 4 times in the past few years and have had AMAZING cuts by HIRO and MAX (the salon manager).

I have been meaning to review them for a long time. Both my boyfriend and I have been regulars at Kamiya for almost two years now.

I'm doing an updated review because I went back to get my hair re-straightened after about a year and although the service was still amazing, I was not impressed with the final results. My hair was fried, and the damage was irreversible.
