Best hair cut in Toronto.

I have forever complained of any hair cut I have had in Toronto since I moved here in 99'.
This is honestly the first time I can say....I Love my hair cut and style!!!!
My hair cut is just how I asked and just how I like it. They listened, were very nice and accommodating and like i said, best of all, I love my hair!!

favourite haircut

I went in to JC Salon with a friend and on a whim decided to let them trim my hair. As it turns out I got the best haircut of my life. I have layers, feathering, and my hair is so healthy. It looks good curly or straight, and my hairstylist - Francesco - listened to exactly what I wanted and gave me the extra flare I needed for my new summer look!
Thanks so much JC Salon! I will be back, I love it there

found my new salon!

I recently decided I need to change salons after 1 too many mistakes made by my last stylist. My cousin recommended this place...she's heard good things about it. Sceptical and nervous, I checked it out anyway! Happy I did! Had some color corrections done and just a trim, my blonde is the best tone ive ever had it! See you guys in 6 weeks for my root touch up ;)

P.S. The reason for the 4star rating isn't because they are not a 5star but because ive only been once so far

Affordable hair cuts and hair colour - plus a fabulous manicure!

I just went to bloorwest village to drop by JC Salon. Anita, the co-owner was hilarious. Its a family run place, and even those who aren't related get treated like family. I was able to get a fabulous manicure with the summer's new colours, as well as watch the creative cuts and colours happen for several happy clients. They are real and down to earth truly hilarious, not to mention affordable, and professional.

Definitely recommend! (even if its just for the complimentary cappuccino you get while you wait your turn reading magazines)

Thanks again guys!

Toxic management dictates corporate culture

Had a terrible experience at this salon. The stylist completely ignored my request for a simple trim to my existing style and cut my hair too short. As a result the color was defeated. I expressed my disappointment and was deferred to the manager who was rude and caustic. She was insulting and so unprofessional I can't believe how abusive she was in front of staff and other customers. Please avoid this experience. No talent, no professionals, no business being in business.

Save yourself and others! Spread the word

I moved to Toronto recently but have been a frequent business traveller here for years. It is an exciting move having come from a smaller community. The cosmopolitan lifestyle promises to be an interesting change. This adventure of establishing new routines, forging into new social, business and service relationships causes some slightly nervy anticipation never the less I am eager for the journey. The composite of neighbourhoods that is Toronto is mindful of a cruise vacations. Many ports of call during the voyage but pack and unpack only once. My endeavours to establish routine day-to-day relationships have required some refining but have mostly been good and resulted in smiles and the comfort and convenience of knowing where I will become a regular patron. I’m a loyal end user of goods and services and when I find that place that makes me happy the relationship becomes much like sticking your tongue on a freezing flagpole. So it’s great now I have grocers, restaurateurs, dry cleaners, florists, dentist and Doctor in many different ports. Yesterday, after a year of deliberate avoidance my most dreaded search began. Nothing scares me more than a hairstylist. I googled salons in my neighbourhood, found JC Salon on Bloor St. west did some research and found, the namesake Johnny Cupello had a reputation that would likely require him to employ quality talent and experience in his establishment; so I took the plunge. Arriving, I was met by Dominic, a nice enough salon coordinator who was justifiably affected by my anxious demeanour. Off put I am sure by this mid aged women who’s expression likely looked more akin to a toddler about to have her haircut for the first time, my thinking was “that colonoscopy I had last year was more fun than this” I knew for certain that I should have headed straight for the exit sign when I saw a client tremor from her chair as the stylist nipped the nape of her neck with the clipper. She whimpered repeatedly “that really hurt, that really hurt”. At that moment I became completely mesmerized and totally paralysed by the gargantuan array of intuitive voices that kept pleading “run, run…save yourself” But no! I have this very illogical voice of reason that persists in giving awful advice and it kept saying “how bad could it be….it’s hair…it grows” I mustered as much guts as I possibly could and remained in my waiting chair, thinking “this must be what death row inmates experience while waiting for the electric chair.” After a far too long wait I was introduced to Rudy, THE STYLIST, who proceeded to boast that he was an award winning stylist to the stars who had been favoured by the styling gods. Had been beckoned to style hair for many dignitaries and celebs including Nelly ( Furtado) Elizabeth (The Queen) the salon owner Johnny ( Cupello). How could my voice of reason lack such judgement? 20 minutes later I emerged from the chair with a haircut that looked like my dreadlocks had been chewed away by rats while I slept under the Gardner Expressway. On the way home people passed me spare change. I love Toronto! In a year or so from now when I get up the courage to find a new salon and suffer this misery yet again, hopefully I will have enough hair by then, I am hopeful that some contributor to your site will have provide some quality advice that I can use, I’ll keep you posted!

I wouldn't recommend this place...
Craig especially isn't the greatest person to see. I went in wanting to go lighter (dark blonde from a medium brown) and he decided that it would be best to match my roots and then add blonde in another session. He dyed my hair VERY dark, much darker than it was and it looks like a box dye that I could have done at home. I never went back to get the blonde... more

Such a mixed experience here. I've probably been about 5-6 times as it's close to home. The people were friendly, and they are about 3 for 5 on quality of the cuts. 2 of the cuts i got were good (though one was quite $$). One, she just didn't know when to stop (I had to tell her enough). The other 2, in particular the last one, were awful. I actually hate my hair right now, and am so angry I... more

I love this place and have been getting my haircut here for the last 3 years by Nicky. I highly recommend him! The salon has a great atmosphere and everyone is super friendly.

I just found out that they also do nails, waxing and threading - good to know......a one stop salon visit!

I highly recommend Darren as a colorist. He has fixed my platinum blonde hair twice (which is very hard to do). The first time, I came in with orange roots. Another colorist got rid of them, but left my hair looking very flat and dull. Darren put in a bunch of highlights (the best highlights I've ever had) and my hair looked spectacular. The blonde was light, bright, and cool, which was exactly... more

EDIT 5 to 3 stars
Came back for a hair cut. Put me on a 2 hour wait where I clearly see room open right now and free within 1 hour. I decide to leave without making a fuss but then the owner stops me by saying he'll bump it down to a 1 hour wait

I have no idea why I've been to this place 3 times, but I'll never go back. Worst haircut that I've ever had. I showed pictures, and then got a new cut that looks absolutely nothing like what I wanted but straight out of the 90s, which is probably the last time my stylist educated himself on hairstyling techniques. Expensive and awful.

They really need to reconsider their receptionist... She is so awful!!! Not a good career choice for her. She sounds like someone's loud drunk smoker aunt that makes you feel like and idiot when you talk to her. Awful! Just by having a conversation with her I didn't want to go there! But I must say I have been before and had a colour done and the guy was wonderful. But that receptionist was... more

This was the worst experience I've had at a Salon in a while! Noelle cut my (wavy, thick) hair and insisted that it could only be done by first straightening it. She then not only cut my hair much too short, but also in a way that DOES NOT look good. I was clearly not happy with the straightening and told her that I never straighten my hair and she did not respond. She let me walk out of the... more

Updated review from 4 stars to 3:
Reason: a few times later, the same barber got a bit too comfortable with me, and was not doing as a good job as before.
I asked for coffee at my last appointment, and was told the day just started, the machine needs time to warm up... Pretty much was refused coffee, IMO the barber was too lazy to do it. For $50 the experience of being in such a place, I found... more

I'm really disappointed in the haircut that I received and the response I got when I raised my concerns to the management. I went in for the first time thinking that all I want is my short hair shaped a bit, so it should be easy for an intermediate stylist to do. The stylist (Noelle) didn't ask me how short to cut my hair before she chopped it. She barely asked me any questions and then assumed... more

My last experience at JC Salons was a terrible one. My usual stylist had left the salon to go on maternity leave and I called and made an appointment with another stylist who basically did a complete hack job on my hair. It looked terrible. When I expressed my unhappiness with the cut I was told that I was being overly emotional becaise I was pregnant. Are you kidding me? They actually had the... more

I used to go to JC Salons, but after three terrible experiences I never went back and now have a wonderful person who does my hair that I met through a friend. I wanted a new color and was really excited for it.

Absolute worst cut & colour - ever !  I asked for colour as close to my natural light brown, simply to cover the grays that are starting to appear.  I got such a dark brown it is almost black.  My hair was about 3-4 inches below my shoulders, all one length.  Now it barely touches my shoulders, and on the right side there is a huge chuck of hair missing.  It looks like someone grabbed a handful... more

This in my view is by far the best salon in Toronto. I have tried so many places where I live now and currently nothing comes close to JC Salons. Margaret is the most amazing stylist I have come across. She knows how to cut long hair or give you the perfect short cut.

I came to JC because I followed my stylist Rudy here. He gives amazing cuts and really listen to what you want. I'd highly suggest him for a cut. Unfortunately, everyone here specializes in either colour or cuts, so new clients can't get colour done by Rudy. Which is a shame, because he does an amazing job.

That being said, I found the front desk staff a little stand off-ish. After I filled... more

Sarah from JC cut my hair recently. She's a junior assistant stylist and she did a fantastic job cutting my hair. The environment was very relaxing and the other staff were friendly too.
