Not impressed
Funny how it was advertised as $80 but I end up paying more than $100. Colour not even correct.

First time to this place and had the worst experience ever. Went in for a colour and they had plastered my whole face with colour and didn't even bother to rub it off until I said something about it. Very unprofessional place and they always talk in their language so you don't understand what they are saying!!
But guess what....I had a friend with me who spoke Arabic and they didn't know that and I didn't appreciate what they had said about me!! ME a difficult client....I don't think so, any other place that I had gone too ALWAYS were very cautious about getting colour on your face. WILL NEVER GO BACK!!

Great salon!
Went to Gabiani Hair Moda for the first time last night. What a treat! The staff are friendly, skilled and very accomodating. The color and cut was absolutely perfect and when I was getting ready to leave a storm blew in so one of the employees walked me to my car with an umbrella to save my new hair from getting ruined! How many salons offer that extra service? This will be my new hair salon without a doubt...I can't wait to go back for my next visit!

Gabiani Hair Moda and Salon -excellent
I have been enjoying the services of Gaby for highlights, cut and style and Lilian for waxing and pedicures for 5 years. They are always excellent and I enjoy being treated to their personal service and attention. I find their service to be very professional.

Gabiani Hair Moda - Salon Ottawa, hair highlights, hair stylist
Awesome experience. I had my hair appointment last week and I'm incredibly satisfied! Everything went great from the beginning to end. I showed my stylist some photos of what kind of cut I wanted and she totally went above and beyond my expectations. I will definitely be going back.

I waited for 1hr, no hair cut
It was my 1st time going there.. Gabbi was supposed to cut my hair, i watched him finish up with a client. Then a brand new client walked in and he started cutting her hair. After waiting for 30 minutes, the receptionist washed my hair... Then I sat in the chair for another 30 minutes with dripping wet hair. I was drenched. I walked out of there in the freezing cold with wet hair and no cut.

worst salon EVER
I went there to get my hair done for a special occassion. They didnt listen to what I wanted, they rushed, and I only got about 5 minutes of attention from the person I actually booked my interview with (gabiani) and the rest was done by his "assistants". I was crying two hours before my big event, I went home and redid everything myself. They were horrible.

Overpriced, Overrated, and Poor Service
I had a relaxer, trim and style done. I had brought my own chemical straightening product so he said he would charge me $55 for the service - OK, I didn't mind. However, when he mentioned that he it would be an extra $30 to blow dry my hair after washing the product out, I was not impressed. He said if I didn't pay then he would just towel dry my hair. I have been to many hair salons, including Holtz Spa, and they would never let their client walk out with damp hair.

Even washing the product out of my hair was a struggle for the other stylist as I had to sit there with my head in the sink for 15 minutes - NOT IMPRESSED! I was like, "Is there a problem?". To make matters worse, they spoke Lebanese and didn't let me know what they were doing with my hair - very unprofessional.

We came to an agreement that I would pay an extra $35 for the "Artistic Director's" cut and style (which is priced at $50) and that was a huge mistake. I had showed him a picture of a 40's retro style and he did not do anything even remotely close to that. He flipped out the back, which I could have done, and curled out some bangs - even tho it was supposed to be wavy/ringlets. I told him I had expected a polished look and he said there was only so much he could do with my hair. Sorry, but the black hair salon's never had a problem styling my hair and it always came out bouncy and shiny.

The styling was amateur at best and even before leaving the salon, the style was starting to come undone.

Please, if you have black/african hair, do not go to Gabiana's hair salon. Turn right back around and run away!!!
