I've gone to this location for years. Chris use to do my hair but left.
Darlene now does my hair, she does a great job. No complaints at all.

Walked in to this location and we're the first people. A lady with children walked in after us and we're taken first although no appointments taken. When I challenged them I got real snotty attitude. Don't use these people they are very rude and only an adequate hair cuts. Lots of salons offer same prices.

I brought in a picture to give the hairdresser and idea of what I expected. Of course I realized that it wouldn't be cut exactly as I wished but if it could have been roughly like the picture, I would have been satisfied. My hair was shoulder length so there was no excuse for what she did to my hair.
It was definitely the WORST hair cut I've ever had. It was totally uneven, especially on the sides.
She cut my bangs almost an inch shorter than I asked. In fact, she didn't do anything I asked. I don't know how she keeps her license as a hair dresser. I will NEVER EVER go back to 1st Choice Haircutters again!!

The hair dresser told me she wasn't going to cut my bangs but that I could do it myself at home

Awful awful service at first choice. I asked to get my hair coloured into a lighter shede there and it went this dark fugly colour. meanwhile they all are like "oh wow this looks great" and waiting for me agree or something. I was so angry with this awful job. I am never coming back here.
Sidenote: both ofthe hairdressers had shit hair. how can people really take you seriously when you look like that?!

I went by this FC this evening at 6:30; their website said they were open until 8pm weekdays. They were closed early (6pm) for Halloween!? Halloween is NOT a holiday, nor is it acceptable for a business establishment to close early, without at least posting it on their website. I'm disabled and have difficulty getting around, and I live out of the city. To go there and see a "Closed Early for Halloween" sign on the door is just unprofessional and shows very little concern for their customers.

I had a bad experience at First Choice before, so I was a little hesitant returning but i am so glad I Did! The young lady who cut my hair (i think her name is Lacy) did an amazing job!She spent a lot of time asking me what =I= wanted which a lot of hairdressers dont do. they hear shorter cut and do whatever they want. My cut is simply amazing and she did exactly what i wanted and actually listened to me even if i didnt have the right words we talked through it. I will be back to see her for sure!

This location does not deserve any stars. I have been a first choice customer for years. I have gone to many locations and recently just moved to Ottawa. I have always liked first choice because its quick service with a good price. Now in ottawa my hair cut has gone up by $4. I think 18 bucks for a mans hair cut is rediculous.
Now, I went back there on a tuesday night at 6:30pm, walk in, the door wide open, employees in there, and I get refused as they say they are closed. I have never heard of a first choice being closed on a weekday before 9pm. I come from a quiet little town, that has 3 first choice locations which are all open until 9pm and yet one in a busy city can't stay open.
I guess the working person who works all day and requires a haircut in the evening time is S.O.L.

I went to first choice on Bank and Huntclub today at the southgate center and I had asked get my bangs cut, as I had gone to many people before who were not able to cut them the way I liked them.

Mary cut my bangs perfectly!!!! I have never had someone spend to much time and attention to detail as she did.

Great job Mary. Thank you so much. I will definitely be returning!

I went to first choice in Collingwood, ON to make my hair for a wedding. It was a terrible expeirnece. Then went to another place to fix my hair again.

I wanted an up-do to go to a wedding and I looked on the board of prices and it went from $12.00 for short hair and $18.00 for long hair. When I went to pay my bill was $37.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was not impressed and I asked them why and they said because my hair was extra long (there was no price on this board).

So never again! Screw you First Choice (no wonder your nickname is last choice). Bank and Hunt CLub location, do not forget it.

at First choice you get what you pay for: next time you want a up-do. go to the Hair Co-op. downtown. they are great! although a litle more expensive. and ask for Peggy. she is Great at it.
