Client Reviews

This was my first time going to this salon and Youmi was wonderful! I had a bad experience with a previous hairstylist as they cut my hair very badly. (I’ve had to wait months for my hair to grow out) I asked Youmi for her recommendation and she was able to salvage my hair thankfully and I’m so happy I was able to find her. I will definitely be going to her from now on! [Jenny]

Recently discovered a fantastic hair salon at Yonge and Finch, conveniently located next to GoodLife Fitness in the Xerox building. Youmi, the stylist, is not only knowledgeable about the latest hair trends but also incredibly friendly. After numerous disappointments with other salons in the Yonge and Finch to Yonge and Sheppard area, I finally got a refreshing cut from her. Already booked another appointment and looking forward to another great experience. Highly recommend! Plus, if you drive, she validates parking, saving you from those Green P parking fees—a great bonus! [Matthew Im]

HairLab (Youmi) is great! She understood exactly what I wanted right away and actually managed to give me the color I wanted.

My overall experience was 10/10. Color, Haircut & blow dry 👌🏼

I’m definitely coming back and can’t recommend this place enough! [Berenice Anaya]

My barber was a lady,  she was the only one working so probably she is the owner.   Her haircut is average at best and while she was cutting my hair she kept talking to other clients who I think are her regulars… I felt she wasn’t really concentrating on my haircut and more interested in the conversation.   The haircut took quite long considering I just needed a 0 side fade and a light trim on top.   Below average but hey for $9 cut and $3 tip… Can’t expect salon quality service… And style… [Vin Zilla]

Skillful and polite. Attractive pricing. Staffs mainly speak Mandarin but also understand Cantonese. The parrot is adorable so you never feel bored incase you have to wait. [will won]

I found this little gem on Google, close to my place. Decide to check it out and I really, really like it! Very reasonable prices in current times and I am very happy with the haircut. Really pleasant and polite people too! [Khoi Vu]

Client Reviews

I came here twice already since I really prefer their services over my previous salon. First appointment was for a haircut and Anna was able to address my hair situation as she was knowledgeable. Requested for curtain bangs with lot’s of layers which Anna delivered and a did a very nice blowout afterwards. The ambiance is very welcoming, clean and lightning was always good. $60 for my long and thick hair was definitely affordable. [Kirsten Q]

This marks my second visit, during which they styled my sister’s hair. The service was excellent, and everyone treated both my sister and me with kindness. I appreciate the professionalism displayed from the moment we entered the salon. The pricing is entirely reasonable. I give this salon a perfect 10/10 – I adore it! [Florencia Chen]

I dyed my hair for the first time but I didn’t choose what color should I do, so Yujin hairdresser dyed my hair freestyle and it looks super good. Even thought I decolorized 3 times, my hair condition is still perfect. Also her haircut skills are incredibly good. Also everyone was very nice and taking care of me during dying my hair. They gave me snacks, water, candies and chocolates. I think Taya hair salon is one of the best hair salon I ever went. [김완]

4. Bella Jin Hair Salon

4.5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐(782)

Once upon a time, there was this amazing Korean lady named Soon Bok Kim, with big dreams in her heart. She wanted to create something special, something that truly reflected her spirit. So, she started BellaJin, inspired by her English name “Bella” and the Korean letter “Jin” which means ‘authentic’.

Over the years, BellaJin has grown and changed, but one thing remains constant: Soon Bok Kim’s caring nature. If you’re seeking a place where you’re not just another customer, but someone who is genuinely cared for, then BellaJin is the perfect spot for you.

Newly renovated and friendly. Liked my haircut. Also, free parking available. [Young Woo Kim]

What’s the point of a consultation if they’re going to cut how they want it?

I showed them pictures of the  specific bangs I wanted; chunky face framing pieces below my cheek bones with some wispy front bangs falling mid eye level.  They said “yes yes, ok”  and proceeded to cut. I said it didn’t look like what i wanted, can you bring down more side hair to give me that long face frame. Then I was told my hair was too thin for this style. Why was this not mentioned at the consultation?!

I also mentioned wanting a light trim, showed her where and she proceeds to cut…only checking in at the end if the length was OK. It’s really too late !!! Cutting then checking with your client is too late.

My face framing pieces are now above my cheeks and it looks like i received a bowl cut. My bangs are uneven after I wash my hair out.

I didn’t feel heard each time I raised a concern. Really not happy.

——– old review ——–

I came in for a setting and straightening perm. I have naturaly curly hair. The consultation was very thoughtful and thorough. My hair was already damaged from previous processing so I was advised the curls would hold differently and what to expect from the perm. I was also suggested a hair treatment before to help.

The process took 4.5 hours, the wifi here was reliable and fast so I was able to get work done. It was nice they also offered me a cushion block making working on my laptop less straining. ♡

Super happy with the results and how she trimmed my hair. Will be back for touch ups.

There’s a cash discount and a membership program as well.

There’s reserved parking for the salon although it’s a small lot. [kim nguyen]

I got a hair bleach and colour service as the salon was running a promotion. Although I used to frequent Hair Bank Bloor while I was living downtown, the quality and service at their uptown location still wowed me! Having had previous hair colour/bleaching services done in the past, I was impressed with the level of efficiency and expertise here. My hair is still strong after multiple rounds of bleaching and Laura and her assistant were very kind and knowledgeable in answering my questions. As a family-run operation, they were also very hospitable to me during my long hair service, offering tea and baked goods.

I only take off one star because I felt that Laura and her assistant were quite rough when touching my head and hair. I have extremely fine and breakable hair and any sort of aggressive brushing or pulling snaps my hair. I’m not sure why it was so hasty since the salon was not necessarily busy (I doubt they intended to be harsh) but it was extremely uncomfortable at times with the pulling during bleach application and the hair washing by Laura. I heard and saw some hairs snap during the application process.

Other notable mentions: clean shop with free on site parking + they honoured the promotion price we discussed although they added a colour removal service and small trim, which at other salons would have caused a big markup [Emma Ni]

Hariko did an amazing job with my hair. I can easily trust her with my hair. She is very dedicated, perfectionist and motivated. Love her work. [kajol prajapati]

Great service but overpriced and unprofessional hairstylist. I showed the stylist (a male but I won’t disclose his name) a short bob haircut but turns out my bangs were cut an inch shorter and my head looks like a mushroom. He didn’t bother to look at the pic I showed… and the outcome was very different from the photo I showed, would not come again. Definitely not worth $70… I wished the haircut would be somehow a bit Japanese but totally not.

Last time Akari helped me and it was the best salon experience I had, she has really amazing skills even though she’s only on working holiday, she could help me practice my Japanese oral too. I regretted a lot for not asking her this time. [Luisa Tam]

Masa always takes good care of my hair and does exactly what I ask for.  He has a lot of attention to detail and always checks in with me throughout the appointment.

I made the mistake of going to another salon (GOA) and they thinned my hair without consent!!  Even worse, I didn’t even realize until Masa showed me in the mirror.  I am never going anywhere else again.  Thank you Masa for trying to fix my hair! [Lin Wu]

Exceptional service and talented stylists! This hair salon exceeded my expectations. They really listen to your preferences and deliver fantastic results. Definitely the best in North York.

Yuka is my favourite and forever the best hairstylist. She got me the best hair colour and hair cut.

Same as my husband always gets hair done with Teddy. He always can follow his hair preferences and make the best style. [Somwan Aonto]

Very pleased with my first time visit to this salon for a hair cut before the holidays. Located in a convenient spot, only steps away from Finch station. Rosie has good attention to detail, double checks to make sure all the ends are even, and checks in with you throughout. At first, I was hesitant since fringe cuts don’t suit me as well as they look in the hair model picture from my consultation.. She is the first stylist to create a pretty fringe look on my short hair. Will return!

Tip: Bring some photos of a desired hair cut for your stylist to review during consultation. [Karen L]

Great place for Japanese hair straightener

New customer here that will stay forever ❤️

The staff is amazing, so kind and professional.

The environment feels like home and the team works perfectly together.

My hair treatment was done perfect. Nothing compared as my last salon (7 years customer) last two times I went there my hair didn’t even last straight for 1 hour, and their excuses were that “is my hair”

Well, today I can say that wasn’t my hair, my hair has been straight since she finished the treatment and haven’t seen any curls.

Thank you so much ❤️ for making my life easier and making me smile again after a salon appointment. [Veronica Gutierrez]
