Client Reviews

Genevieve was an absolute angel. I was a bridesmaid in a wedding and had a hair emergency when my original hair stylist cancelled. She booked me in day of. I was really late when it came time for the appointment as I was running around all day but she still did me the huge favour of squeezing me in. She did my hair quickly but still so beautifully and it lasted all day. I was so grateful for her kindness and patience that day. Thanks Genevieve!

Everyone at Salon Bliss is so kind and welcoming! I have had cuts with both Sarah and Michelle. Both are so talented and non-judgemental. I have very thin and damaged hair and in the past I’ve dreaded going in for a cut at some places / before moving to Ottawa. Salon Bliss is the first place I’ve been where I’ve felt totally comfortable. Would recommend them any day ????????
