I got a great cut from a hairdresser named Wendy, so good that I didn't have to return for about 8 months. In that time, she left and I don't know where she went or her last name so I have no way of tracking her down. If anyone knows who I am referring to, please let me know!!!

I think I do. I own Fringe. I haven't heard from her but I think she is teaching at the Aveda Academy. You can call there and find out. I am almost positive.

Asides from haircuts, does Fringe do hairstyling? (silly question) What I mean is, does Fringe do hairstyling really well? I would like to come here for my prom hairstyling !

I am going to give this salon a try. Hopefully I won't leave with hair all over my face and actually be able to go somewhere after having my hair done! After having frequented Coupe Bizarre too many times, I am hoping that I can find someone that can cut and style my hair.

Hey. I was looking for a place to get a layored bob and thought i might try fringe. does anyone know how much a women's cut goes for?
Lila / July 26, 2009 at 05:18 pm
user-pic
I do not recommend this place - not at all. For my friend's and I's cuts they sheared when the hair was dry and my naturally way hair is not tamed by the 'flattering' layered cut. Instead, each hair is splitting and the uneven cut has made my hair into a menacing cloud. The cut itself would be fab if not for the dry shearing. Be careful, curlies.

If your looking for a stylish haircut this is the place. I lived abroad for several years and only went to salons that knew how to precision cut so I couldn't of been happier when I moved to TO and found this salon. Thanks Fringe for top class service. It's refreshing to find both style and substance on the Queen West strip.

Ken's been cutting my hair for years. I've always left looking hot, and turning heads...following a new cut, I get compliments daily for weeks and have always phoned him at least once between haircuts to tell him how many comments there have been and to thank him.

He's gotten my curly hair into a Bettie Page cut, given me a candystripe red and natural hair dye job that was really fun, to celebrate my mid-life crisis, which we've tamed to a more sedate wild shag, with purple highlights.

He's got great taste in what makes women look good and I trust him completely...can't remember the last time I told him what to cut it to, I just let him know what's happening in my life and what I need him to cut it for. He gets it and does what's appropriate, and yet, still cool.

Maybe no one could be bothered giving an answer that one can easily obtain by phoning the salon. Why don't YOU phone and let everyone know?

I'm sure that the prices are about the same as all salons at this level. I don't want to post what I'm charged (although it's very reasonable), because having been a client of Ken's for such a long time, I may be getting a preferred rate.

I think that for a business to be successful, they need a Website and they need to post a price range. I was thinking about this place and this is the only information I can find. You shouldn't have to call.

Hi.

Okay so prices are $50-$65 for a cut. $65+ for colour and $120+ for hilites. And as for a website I didn't know what I wanted. It's a first impression and I want it to be perfect and simple.
sorry for the late response I rarely check this.

And as for Lila. Sorry you had a bad experience. I am not sure who you saw and where the miscommunication happened. It doesn't make me happy when our clients are unsatisfied. And it is good to know when you are unhappy so that we can learn and improve.

Thanks

Well, I can definitley make you a website that is clean and simple, and very modern. Something that will grasp attention effectively, without seeming to durastic.

Websites are almost mandatory in today's society, just for the fact that people spend most of their time on a computer, cellphone, blackberry, etc. where they are always connected to the web.
So it would certainly be beneficial to have a website, you will most likely bring in more business.

If your interested, you can contact me via email; jordyn.lynn.wilson@gmail.com.

Thanks!

Lesley is amazing!!!! She gave me the best haircut I have ever had - EVER! And it was so easy to maintain and style on my own afterward. I also went to an older gentleman there and got the worst cut of my life....I was thoroughly disappointed. I guess it really depends on the stylist. I'll be back for sure....but only to Lesley.

Lora is my stylist and she is really great. She takes the time to listen to what I want and where other stylists will say I won't look good with short hair, Lora works it and makes it look good. I get compliments from her cuts for months. My friend recommended me to Lora and I haven't looked back since.

I got my bangs trimmed by some tall dark and handsome guy with big eyebrows (mega hot). I asked for choppy, uneven bangs and he cut them straight across. When he asked me if it was ok, I said I'd like them even more jagged (it was practically precision cut-straight) and he answered that he didn't see how he could make them more jagged. Really? Come one! I gave up. Of course, bangs are free, so I just tipped him and left, disappointed, but I guess I truly got my money's worth. ha!

Then months later, my boyfriend randomly went it and got the same guy. 50$ for a men's haircut, WTF? and on top of it, he nicked the side of his head with the clipper and made him look like he had a bald patch due to a scar, which he doesn't.

Is he representative of the rest of the staff? I hope not, because I really want to like that salon and support my own 'hood.

Hi Anonyme.

Sorry to hear you didn't get what you were looking for. I stand by all my stylists and think they are great which is why I have them working for me. We do not all have the same cutting background. We have different techniques which make us all cut slightly different. Maybe you would like to try another stylist? Give me a call at the salon. 416.588.1336. Ask to speak with me (lora). I would like to chat for a moment.

Thank you.

Also, to the gentleman enquiring about our hours. We are Tues-Friday 10-7:30 (we will stay later if we need to) Saturday 10-5. We are currently closed Sunday and Monday. Sorry for any inconvience.

And. We are in the process of building a website. Should be up in a few weeks:)

Wow Lora! Your response really surprised me. I never expected that someone from the salon (or any other salon) would read this, nevermind address a negative comment directly and constructively. I've read a ton of user feedback on salons across the city, and the general rule is "ignore or dismiss negative feedback, and gush and praise happy customers". I never expected to be invited to have a conversation to try to resolve any dissatisfaction.

I really appreciate it, and our conversation, and wanted to make a point of mentioning it here for the benefit of readers who will stumble upon this post in the future. Also, of course, to give you credit; I think it was mature, professional and open minded.

In light of that, and the otherwise overwhelmingly positive feedback your salon/stylists have earned, I am definitely willing to chalk my experience up to bad luck and probably some miscommunication too. I truly look forward to meeting you in person, and letting you chop off my tresses so we can donate them to a worthy cause.

Thanks again :)

Hello Lora,

After having my hair super long for 4 years, last year I decided to get a shorter haircut because my hair was thinning and very unhealthy due to a stupid hairstylist at Tony&Guy who almost burned my head and turned it yellow!

The hairstylist chopped off 75% of my hair and basically I had to get my hair "fixed" 3 times after that so the last time I had my hair cut was last August and I looked like Katie Holmes on a VERY bad hair day!

It is growing now but in the ugliest and most unfashionable way but I am TRAUMATIZED by all those bad experiences and all that money spent. I am used to my mother's style but she lives abroad and I can't seem to trust anyone else on my hair.

I am VERY picky and a real pain in the ass and basically any hairstylist's nightmare because I grew up with 3 hairdressers in my family and I always know what I want.

Should i wait for my hair to grow past shoulder-length to even start trimming?

I really don't know what to do and I know some people can't understand this but I cry over my hair like there's no tomorrow lol I can see that ur salon is popular so I am afraid to not get enough time/attention..

What do you think?

I have been going to Trevor for the past two years. He was recommended to me by a friend and I've been going ever since. Before Trevor I had been going to the same girl for almost four years and then I moved to Toronto. I was terrified to get my hair cut and I put it off for quite some time. After the recommendation, I went in and talked with Trevor about this and he really put me at ease. The cut was great and exactly what I asked for. I had been growing my hair out from a medium-length bob and now, two years later, its so healthy and long.
Thank you Trevor.
*Fringe is also a really nice atmosphere and I feel that they pay close attention to what there clients are asking and need.

I had a horrible haircut a while back; I thought the stylist and I were on the same page, but boy was I wrong. I had to let it grow out for quite some time (I even had to "fix" part of it myself) and I was a bit gun-shy to have it cut again, but it had grown out to a point where it desperately needed some shaping.

I live in the neighbourhood and had heard about Fringe though a friend, so I did my research and found the great reviews. I ended up going yesterday and Ken gave me an amazing haircut, which I love, love, love! What a lovely man he is, not only talented at what he does, but so warm and personable.

I HIGHLY recommend - thanks again Ken!

I am Chinese and have been thinking of trimming my hair. 50 is kinda high for me to pay since i only work for minimum wage. I am just wondering if any of barber does excellent job on Asian style. I went to House of Lords, they damaged my hair twice already and i am not thinking of going back again!! 1 year ago, someone from Chinatown cut my hair without wetting it, she just blow dry it and cut it! IT was the barber i have been going there for 10 years. I was really mad. cuz my hair length wasn't balance! was like long there and short here~ right now I keep my hair long! I do alot of care cuz I work in a very hot environment. i never had long hair since i was born and it took me a long time to grow it back and i am kinda scared to go to bad barber now! Can anyone give me any suggestions?

I am wondering approx. how much it would be to get my hair dyed blonde. Currently it is shoulder length, dark brown with some honey highlights. I read one of the reviews above and someone mentioned they had their hair dyed blonde from a similar state mine is in, by a stylist named Lora. I'm quite petrified to go blonde again because when I did years ago I was left with a horrible tacky yellow colour that didn't mesh well. Get back at me! Thanks :)

I travel from the "terrible" 905 just to get my hair cut and styled by Lora. Haven't been with anyone else at her salon, but a quick consultation with her about what you're feeling and wanting and she makes it happen. This place is great and everyone is friendly. Would recommend! A+++++++

BTW Lora, if you see this -- the whole 1950's side split cut you gave me last time; everyone's loving it. :)

See you soon!

Hi Joe,

I saw it, thanks so much. It does suit you and looks great. I think I will probably be seeing you soon:).

As for Katt, You would be needing a colour correction. I would book with myself or lesley for this. Lesley is also amazing at doing colour corrections. I would book a 15 minute consultation to see how your hair is and where we can realistically get you in terms of lighter colour. we can discuss prices then based on the process. Feel free to call the salon at 4165881336.

I don't check this often,

Thank you,

Well I came across this searching for a great salon and stylist in Toronto (I live in Mississauga)and I was so surprised and amazed Lora that you would take the time out of your busy scheduele to even comment on this and what a wonderful person and business owner you are for standing behind your salon and hairstylists...I was truly amazed and glad to hear from customers who are truly HAPPY with your services and for that I will now book a consultaion with you and probably only you...lol. I have had long gorgeous hair since I was 15 (long and thick)and was going to the same hairdresser since then (Im now 39) but noticed that the last couple years we were not on the same page at least for highlighting my hair..I wanted BAM when it came to my highlights lately not WAM and he just would not do it so I got my friend to "Frost and Glow" it(with the cap) and well I will never do it again...even though the color looked good my hair was burnt together...try pulling that cap off...lol...cost me $200 just for a conditioning treatment which actually did nothing. Last summer I was going through stuff and wanted a whole new look so a relative (who works for a great salon in Oakville) came and gave a a pixie cut...wasnt to bad except Iwanted it like Alyssa Milano's and it didnt look like that...lol. Anyway its growing out and looks like crap so I need a change so I will for sure be calling you Lora just because you honestly care about your clients and the service they recieve...which is a change in this society!!!!

I've been fairly loyal to Phyllis from Fusion in Guelph, but after being geographically displaced I've been a wandering soul. Stumbling in to random salons wasn't yeilding the results I was hoping for so I turned to the internet. The internet always has answers. A quick search brought me to this list of Toronto salons and I read the descriptions, but especially the customer reviews in detail. After some hmm'ing and haw'ing I had the warmest feeling from the reviews of Fringe. Positive and negative comments being addressed by the owner were a part of the decision process, but also in the deduction that this was a salon that was stylish without pretention.

I feel a sense of duty to my process to bring it full circle by posting a review of my own. My appointment was with Lesley, and I'm not sure if I "lucked out" or if she is par the course in terms of quality for Fringe stylists. I went from long, dye damaged hair to a fresh cut with vibrant colour. Lesley was friendly, professional, considerate, and efficient. She gracefully stayed late to finish the job, and both cut and colour turned out excellent. Also the company of her kitten, and great tunes like Wilco and Led Zepellin were appreciated. My only complaint would be that the air conditioning wasn't quite up to snuff and the heat was killing me. The heat was worth it though, I think my hair has found a new home.

Hi Lora,

For the last 5 years I've been going to cheap hair salons that charge like 10-15$ that only know how to shorten my hair but lack the knowdlege of styling. I need my hair styled really well and although I don't know which would suit me the best, I was wondering if you have people that know how to style well with short hair without making it look too flashy, I am going to university this fall and I want it looking hot but not flashy or weird. Although 50$ is very high for me, I am willing to pay if i can be assured that I will get what I want because I don't want to make a first impression at uni with a really bad hairstyle. Shall I call you to discuss this in detail?

Do you offer manicures and pedicures as well at Fringe? I saw the Aveda sign and wondered? Also, which of the stylists are the best with longer wavy/ curly hair? I have been going to Ana Maria since I take my kids there, and they are great, but I wonder if it could be better. I was happy to discover your salon in Parkdale and hope to escape there soon!

Hi Lora

Hoping you still check this site. I'm in search of a new stylist and since my husband comes to your salon I thought I'd call to inquire.

When I asked about pricing they said it depended on the stylist not the cut but that it was $50 and up. When I asked who was available at a given time, I was told a name (it was the person on the phone) and when I asked how much she charged she said $50 and up. Why can't I get a straight answer? It's either the stylist or it isn't. Sadly, I didn't make an appointment because I refuse to unless someone can tell me a price.

This isn't the first time we've gotten an elusive response - we also called to inquire about a cut for my son.

I have wavy hair and have rarely had a happy salon experience. Time before last, I went for a shag and ended up with a pixie (I kid you not). Fringe got such terrific reviews I wanted to try it. I called ahead and asked if they had a curly-hair expert who did dry cuts. The answer was yes: Lora. When I went in, I liked the place and everyone was laidback. But although I’d requested a dry cut, Lora wanted to wash my hair first. I’d also said I didn’t want it blow-dried, but she did that too. Lora was pleasant and easy to talk to, so I hoped for the best. At the end, my hair looked mainstream, but pretty, and I left the salon $75 poorer (including the tip for the wash I hadn’t wanted). Two days later, I washed it and it looked terrible. So I went in for a “recut.” Lora wanted to wash it again, but this time I insisted – dry cut. She seemed nervous about cutting my hair dry. At the end, I walked out with soccer mom hair. Like many hairdressers, Lora said she has curly hair herself. Why then was it was so hard for her to cut mine well? This cut grew out very poorly. I do not recommend this salon for anyone with wavy/curly hair. It has a pleasant atmosphere, but the haircut was poor, and it was very expensive.

I love Fringe because I have finally made a good connection with a stylist that really gets my hair. It's kind of like dating douche bags for your entire life then meeting Mr/Mrs right. However, and this is a big however, the new receptionist has attitude. So you've been dating Mr/Mrs right for a while now and you find out they have a constant bladder infection. I know that she doesn't cut my hair, but she is the first person I see when I walk in and the last person I deal with when I pay and leave. So, Fringe, if you read this blog, please know that I don't want to start dating again because I have grown really fond of you, but please cure that bladder infection.
Peace.

Hi

Sorry for the delayed response. Jill, I am not sure why you could not get a straight answer. That really concerns me and will be dealing with this immediately. I have been under-going changes at the salon and we are still in the training process. Cuts do range from 50-65. Jess and trevor being 50. Lesley being $55, Ken being $60 and myself being $65. If anyone reading this ever has any issues with this feel free to ask to speak with me and we can go from there.

As for the attitude that ml experienced I try to run my salon attitude free. I have had many a meetings about this and I hope in the future you will notice an improvement. My apologies for that.

And...Penelope. I understand in this type of career that I so passionately love that it is not always possible to make everyone happy. We do about 50 haircuts a week ( each stylist) and sometimes it is not always easy to understand someone else's vision although we try our best. My apologies as well.

Also for all our clients. We are undergoing changes as I mentioned above and I thank you for your patience and support. Without you we would not exist. All comments good and bad are good and welcomed. Thanks

I chose this place after reading the reviews and I was pretty impressed. Although the clientele did seem a bit standoffish, I think that could have just been my impression. I got Trevor as my stylist when I called in, he was rather nice, and did a really good job of cutting my hair how I'd asked him. It's growing out well and I'm definitely going to be back!

this was the worst experience i have ever had!
first off the receptionist was rude and unhelpful.
second, the woman who cut my hair, (i believe her name is leslie but i cant be certain because she never introduced herself to me)
did THE WORST JOB! and i got a straight forward MENS cut!
she had a shitty attitude, kept snipping tiny bits off and i had to tell her 3 times to go shorter.
she even rolled her eyes. she didnt clean up the back of my neck and i had a few long hairs left behind my ears.
but the BEST PART: it costs 60$$$ for an ametuer cut!
i couldnt believe how ripped off i felt.
i honestly believe i could have recieved much more professionalism and a much better cut from a hair student.
i URGE men NOT to get their hair cut here.
salons like gratefulhead and barbarella cut mens hair sooo much better and for 40 bucks, not 58.25 or whatever it was after tax.
this salon is the WORST!!!

i read alot of comments about this place and i live in the area so i really wanted to try it out.
i got my hair by jessie (i think that was her name) and she was great. extremely funny and outgoing and took her time with my hair and it looked great
the rest of the staff was very nice and laid back and the environment was quite peaceful considering it was slightyl busy that day. the receptionist got me a coffee and was very friendly and inviting and even helped me with some product knowledge.
i was very impressed by jessie and the overall enviroment of the salon. will be back for sure

I just had the works done by Lesley - cut, colour and panel highlights. She is FANTASTIC! Came in with a vision for what I wanted, and left with a look that exceeded my expectations. Everyone at the salon was great. Good casual convo - not too much, not too little.

I will definitely be back to see Lesley.

I moved to Toronto last year and of course was nervous about finding a new stylist. After dabbling at Cabinet and House of Lords, I felt unsatisfied and ripped off.
In August, I was recommended Fringe by a friend and booked an appointment with Jessie. She did a great job so I rebooked her for my cut and re-colour. I have to say she is amazing. I have paid upwards of 200-250 for sub-par cut and colour and I am very glad I have discovered her.
I do have a slight beef though...
My one complaint I have is the receptionist. I walked in to have her look up at me and then go back to talking with the cuter male stylist, without a greeting or acknowledgement. It took me walking directly up to her before HE not her actually greeted me and confirmed my time and stylist, offered me coffee tea or water and welcomed me to take a seat. You should be paying him to be your receptionist because she clearly does not give a shit. She has the most sour look on her face and the only thing that seemed to get her attention during my whole appointment was the aforementioned cute male stylist. When I asked her if I could use the washroom, she looked at me as though I was putting her out, and one of the stylists finally pointed out where it was, while this supposed receptionist glared at me.
I don't normally like to rag on someone, but reading the previous comments, it seems I am not the first (or the last I'm sure) who have had an issue with this girl.
She needs to be replaced pronto.
Other than that, love the salon, love the service, and love Jessie.

I have to say I love fringe salon. I was recommended by multiple friends and after reading the reviews I finally went in. I got a cut with Trevor and he was great. Very passionate about my hair and extremely easy to talk to. It was a slow day and there were only two or three other stylists in and the environment was very peaceful and relaxing. The receptionist and other girl stylist would engage in conversation with me and I felt like I was at home. I was given magazines and water and felt like I was treated with great respect. Everyone was very inviting and from my moment I entered the salon until i left I never felt one ounce of negativity. I have never had a more positive experience in a salon. Don't let negative reviews detour you.

I had a colour and cut done by Leslie not too long ago. Long story short, I wasn't thoroughly impressed. The entire time she was doing my hair she had this sour look on her face, and barely made conversation with me. She looked very spaced out and not into my hair at all. The best part about my experience at Fringe was all the OTHER hair stylists enthusiasm and the hairwash (amazing wash - to add)/toner application I had recieved from the female assistant. She made me feel more relaxed and content than my actual stylist did. My hair looked good, but my experience was mediocre at best. Maybe Leslie should wake up on the right side of the bed before coming in to work.

I'm a man. I've been going to Fringe for 2 years -- never had an issue. In fact, I'm going this Saturday to get my hair done. It grows out perfectly and I'm there once every three months.

Sometimes when people complain about their experiences and how people have treated them, I wonder how they've treated those who are helping them. Maybe you're getting a reaction from the attitude you're giving them?

Anyways, Fringe rocks.
Lora's great as is the rest of her staff.

Love Fringe! Lesley is my stylist and I am ROTFL
at the crybaby who claims to have had a bad cut and bad time. Have you, if you are real, ever wondered if YOU are a boring, creepy person (with "long hairs" growing out of your neck!)? If you have beef with her why big tell her? People hating on these boards are usually from rival companies, so ignore Miss Hairy Neck, and if u want to look almost ad good as Les or any of the Fringe babes, head over.

Hi,

I try to respond to this blog as professionally and unbiased as possible. I try to take in account my staff who I adore and my clients (not just mine but my staff's). I thought about all the recent activity on this site all weekend and how to handle all the comments (negative). I appreciate constructive critism. As the owner of fringe I ask myself what do I do? What changes do I make? What comments are
legit and what are not? Some of these comments are very serious and could possibly have some serious reprocusions.

If you do have a serious complaint about a staff please call me. It makes it more effective in knowing how to handle it. I did advise the receptionist to let me take the calls.

I have prided myself on having an attitude free salon in an industry that is already intimidating. And these comments really upset me.

Please call me if you have concerns or you can also email me.

Dear Fringe/Readers,

A few days ago an associate and I came across a number of deorogatory remarks about my stylist on this site and I was deeply offended.

My friend posted---as DIVABABY666---comments back, which, at the time, we found quite risible.

I see now they in no way reflect my experience at Fringe: I have been going to the salon for many years, since its inception, and feel that Lesley G., my stylist, is a godsend; that the rest of the staff is also talented, warm and professional.

Particularly Lora Sosa, the proprietor, who is the apotheosis of customer care and service.

I assert that I do not feel this site should be used for gossip or malicious, if not actionable statements; and that
all this talk about "attitude" is counter-productive.

When I have had _any_ issue in the past I have spoken directly to the relevant person: ergo, this mea culpa (regarding what seemed like damned good parody at the time.)

If my friend and I have given offense to the staff of Fringe, I extend my sincerest apologies and the following advice:

Do not drink bourbon and post! There is no Delete button.

Sincerely,

Lynn C.

Dear Lora,

I have just read through all comments including your responses and appreciate your professional attitude towards your clients.

For many years now I've not not been happy with my cuts nor highlights. After 15 years in Ottawa, I'm now back in Toronto, and at 48 am transitioning in my career (back at school full time). What I'm looking for in a cut is something that looks professional but in a relaxed sort of way, and that doesn't require a lot of upkeep.

My question is this - I'd like to know who you would recommend at your salon that I could get a consultation from. Someone experienced who is creative with cuts for someone like me at the younger end of the baby boomer generation. I want the cut to be complementary (keeping the grey as a highlight!) so I can look the best I can, especially for when I begin to interview for jobs.

Whenever you get a chance to respond...would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Claire,

Welcome back to Toronto. I think you would enjoy myself or Lesley. We both understand a good balance between professional and stylish with out being over the top. You can book a consultation anytime and we can both chat with you. We may have very different ideas that can work well together.

Hope to see you,

I read a lot of reviews for this place and decided to make an appointment with Lora. Since she is the owner, I figured she's gotta be good. She was really really friendly, and I liked the feel of the salon.

We both decided that it would be best to layer my hair because it was so long and heavy, but I made a point to tell Lora that I do not want the layers to be choppy.
After she was done the cut she offered to curl my hair (I told her I was going out the following night), which was really nice of her. After the was done curling it looked horrible, but she assured me that the curls would fall the next day and have a loose tousled look, and I trusted her.

The next day the curls didn't fall at all and were still really tight, which isn't a big deal at all, I washed my hair and just blow dried it straight. Thats when I saw how horrible the haircut really was. The layers are really choppy - and almost feathery, I look like I just came out of an 80's video, they are uneven - in the back, they are noticeably shorter on the left side, the layers don't blend, they just stop then the hair is long and then there's layers again, and it's not thinned out at all, so the bottom is very heavy and uneven. All and all it looks like crap, I was literally in tears after I dried it straight. The only thing that's passible about the haircut are the bangs.

I tried calling back there to say how unhappy I am with the haircut, no one picked up, and I decided not to call back. I figured there's no point because the most they are going to offer me is to fix the haircut, but I don't trust them to touch my hair again. I've had some questionable haircuts, but this is by far the worst one I've had in years.

I'm really upset. I take great pride in my hair, and now I'm going to have to wear it up in a bun (you can see how poor the layers are even when in a ponytail) for the next 4-6 weeks, and then get another hairdresser to hopefully fix this.

I have NEVER commented on a blog about anything before, but this haircut is so bad that I felt like I needed to share my experience. I'm not saying Lora is a bad hairdresser, because obviously some people get great haircuts from her, but unfortunately she did a horrible job with my hair. So disappointed.

I called to make an appointment with Jessie who I have gone to for the past handful of months only to find that she no longer works at the salon.
I'm wondering where she has gone and how I can get in touch with her as I would like her to still cut my hair.

On a side note I just wanted to say that her not being at the salon is a huge loss to Fringe. She is an amazing hairdresser and I will be keeping my business with her wherever she goes.

Ella, I am sorry to hear you are so unsatisfied. It really upsets ne that you feel that way as I try to make everyone happy and take pride in consulting and the execution of it. Please feel free to call me and I will refund your money.

Also, Jess is no longer with us. Yes, she is a very talented young lady. She is now living in Mississauga and when she let's us know where she will be working we will let you her clients know as well as we wish her lots of success.

To be honest with everyone. I think for 2011 I am going to stop reading this blog. As much as it has been great for us it also comes with stress.

And please. Any comments feel free to call me at the salon. If we don't answer please leave a message and I promise to call back as soon as possible.

Happy 2011

Also, One last note. As of January 2011 we have had to increase our prices. Cuts now range from $55-$70, Colours $65+ and hilites $120+. We have not raised our prices in 4 years and with the economy to stay afloat this was nessessary. I hope you still chose to see us and I thank all our clients/friends of fringe.

I am VERY particular about my hair and have a clear idea of how I want it, however I'm always interested to know what the professionals think I should do and how they interpret my hair "Vision". Unfortunately, all too often, the stylist is uninterested and uninspired.

I just went to Fringe today for the first time and saw Chantal. She's really cool, listened to what I wanted and gave me a great cut. She made suggestions to improve my idea of how I think my hair should be, as well she consulted with me about my colour (without prompting), which I appreciated because that never happens at salons that have designated colour techs and designated stylists.
I was previously going to Civello on Queen and kept having less than great experiences there; so I'm very happy to say that the Fringe experience was a great one and I'll be going there to see Chantal from now on :)
It's also a nice space, brick walls, wood floors, new, fresh...very nice.

I hear this place is excellent, and though I'm interested in trying it out I'm a little wary. Is Fringe able to work with Black hair as well? Before anyone on here thinks about "...does it matter, is it really any different, geez?" understand that the styling and processes (from my experience) are a little different. I'm looking for something new and this place looks fresh and cool, but at the same time I really don't want my hair to break off and look like a hot mess! Hope you can help me :)

Hi Thalia,

If you read any of my previous comments you'll know that I love Chanel. She's super nice, gave me a great cut and suggested a colour that I ended up trying and am so happy I did.
Chantal is black, so she may be able to do black hair very well.

I've had my hair cut/coloured by Trevor several times. He ROCKS. He's a genius with scissors and does a beautiful job with highlights. He really listens and takes time to figure out exactly what you want and is willing to do touchups if you aren't satisfied. Super friendly, considerate, great conversationalist...oh and he's not hard on the eyes!

I recommend him to all my friends.

Went to get highlights, ended up with all my hair a dark mousy brown! it stripped all my old highlights out which i loved and took a long time to develop. they did offer to fix it the next day, and did a decent job, but it wasn't what i wanted in the first place. now i have all one colour highlights instead of the many i had built up before. ended up paying 140$ for something I didn't even want! Its so frustrating because i originally just wanted something so simple...JUST HIGHLIGHTS. will definately never go back there.

I don't usually go to salons but once in a while I need a good hair cut/trim. I have really thick hair so it can be tricky for me to find a good place. But I really like your salon. Trevor has cut my hair a few times now and just last week my daughter who is 6 years old wanted a cut. Everyone loves how her hair looks. But what I especially like is that the staff was so nice and helpful to my two girls. I know it can be crazy with small kids sometimes, so I really appreciated all your help. Thanks again and I'll be seeing you all for my next haircut. :)

Hello, I'm a trans woman who lives in downtown Toronto. I haven't been to a hairstylist since 2003. One, 'cause I don't know how what sort of reaction to expect, but also because two - let's be honest - hairstylists can sometimes be very intimidating & even bossy, y'know? It doesn't help if you already feel nervous & are having some difficulty articulating what you want.

I've started a new job where I'll be travelling & have to look reasonably presentable; I cannot have my very-long hair just whipping about loosely (it's not looking great that way anyway, lol.) I *have* to find a salon where I can get a friendly smile & (relatively) simple style, when needed. Maybe a shampoo + condition, blow dry, and then some kind of fancy bun...? Would Fringe be a good place for that?

I just seem clueless when it comes to doing virtually anything with my hair, even though videos aplenty online make it look so easy. My hair is quite long. I'm certain after 9 years, it could use a trim to remove dead ends, but I'm scared of the stylist getting carried away. I don't want a 'cut' per se; a trim, maybe. I also have fine/flat hair, & want volume - OK my apologies, I'll wrap this up.

Is Fringe a trans-friendly salon? And does Fringe do styling (from simple, to elaborate), or just cuts? Lastly, if Fringe does do styling - there'll be some picture catalogs that the stylist & I can look through to choose from, right?

Thank you for your response! :)

This really happened to me when i went to this salon

1) got there 10:00 a.m.-the hairdresser I booked wasn't there-he was late
2) I asked him for a hair treatment-he left my head dangling in the sink without a towel under it- when he put the cream in-and left for it to work-since then my neck pain has been terrible-

first of all
1) I know that for a hair treatment-2 minutes is not enough time for it to really work
2) he should have at least placed a towel under my neck
3) you do not take off on a customer who is paying 80 bucks for basically a trim and blow dry
4) isn't the usual process for a treatment to have someone sitting up with a towel around their head and offered a magazine at least?

I let the owner lora know about what happened and she to me
"ummm well do you think it was a lack of communication?"

is she kidding? A sore neck has a lot more to do with then that and she did not even mention to me-well come in -the next cut will be on us-I still have a sore neck a week later-can't swim-she needs to take control of her salon-if they are to remain competitive-theres other salons down the street-
if my visit was shown to that tv woman who goes into salons to fix them she would have been shocked,

did I even mention the wet floor-having been mopped a minute before i came? Or that one doesn't know where to put their bags?
no help or direction is given

I recently booked an appointment at Fringe for a cut and colour, on the recommendation of a friend. I was really looking forward to it since I had been meaning to try this place out for a while. In short it was a really awful experience. I had my appointment with Trevor. He was really rough with my head while washing and styling my hair, to the point where it hurt a couple of times. I told him I wanted to dye my hair a dark brown (from the faded light brown previously dyed before). I was really surprised that he had picked out and mixed the shade without getting my opinion first. After the process of colouring my hair, I sat back down in the chair to get it cut. I thought it was reaaaaally weird that he turned the chair around with my back facing the mirror, and proceeded to give me my entire haircut - not facing the mirror!!! When everything was done, the cut was ok-ish, and I liked the colour. I paid and left. AND THEN when I got home and looked in the mirror, I started noticing exactly how patchy my hair was!!! The dye job was soooo uneven.. including my bangs. Which makes sense now as to why he cut my hair not facing the mirror. Im still really surprised he gave me his business card after all that. In retrospect, I should have called back and complained but felt uncomfortable doing so, and with a busy schedule there was nothing I could do anyways. That suck, I wish it had of worked out.. so, I guess I won't be back.

I got my hair shoulder-length curly hair cut at Coupe Bizarre in Montreal and they completely BUTCHERED it. I really wanted to try curly bangs and ended up with a 70s super ugly shag (and i'm a fan of 70s shags).

ANYWAY, I went to Lora and she gave it a complete 180. I don't think I've ever been more satisfied with a haircut before. She was quick, friendly ,knowledgable and understood exactly what I wanted. All at a reasonable price.

Thanks, Lora! Will be stopping by in August.

I recently had my hair cut with COLLIN and was through the roof with the results.
Having my own Toronto stylist, who I have been with for years, move out of the city I was desperate to find someone who made me leaving like the most beautiful girl in the world.
I met Collin and he spoke of his work and after some time I finally decided to give it a go and I am so glad I did.
He listened to exactly what I wanted and delivered.
His chair manner is soft, funny and sweet. I feel I have gained a new friend through it all.
I could not recommend Collin more!

I completely agree! Collin was fantastic! I have curly hair that some stylists can't seem to manage while Collin not only enhanced my natural curl but also avoided the "triangle hair" that often happens when someone cuts my hair for the first time. Top notch!

I had my hair cut with Collin today and am so happy. I was nervous about going short, but he kindly took the time to go over some ideas and photos beforehand.
Really sweet and comfortable experience. Highly recommend.

I was new to Toronto and nervous about finding a new hair stylist.
(Difficult thick, wavy hair, easy to mess up bangs, i'm always nervous about it).

I was so lucky to get an appt with Collin! every time I leave happier than ever with my hair.

They're not sell-y at all which I appreciate.

Super good experience.
