Awesome Haircut!
I am an older guy, pushing 60, and have not had a great haircut for many years. I had been seeing the same "barber" for some time and it didn't matter what you asked for he just cut it all off! I like my hair a little longer so decided to try The Hair Committee. I know Tasha a bit so asked her if she thought that she could give me what I was looking for and she assured me that she was a good listener and would do her best. Well she did a fantastic job!! She is indeed a good listener and did everything that I requested. I have been seeing her for several cuts now and the last haircut that I had was one of if not my best ever!! Thank you Tasha!

Best salon!
I've been going to Diane for the last 10 years. My mother has been going to her for the last 15. Diane is an expert at what she does and my colour is always fantastic. I can go 3-4 months between appointments and I'll still receive compliments on my "natural" highlights. The grow out stage is so well done people think I was born with my highlights. Diane always takes the time to discuss exactly what I want, despite me being a returning customer. She's always on time and is uber friendly. Though I have never been to one of the other stylists, my boyfriend has come in and was very pleased with the result. I highly recommend the hair committee if you're looking for a high quality hair experience.

Frequent customer
I've been going here for around 7 years now and have seen most of the stylists and have always liked my hair cuts! I also got highlights in the summer and receieved so many compliments on my hair even months after :)

Diane is absolutely fantastic!!!
I had my hair coloured at a salon on Wellington St.
It was a horrible experience ... I had asked them to cover my roots a bit, and perhaps go a little darker than previously. I went in a medium blonde and came out with VERY DARK BROWN hair ... I kept telling them it was looking quite dark, but they just kept saying it would be lighter when it dried. When it was done (and I was in shock) they said they had no time to fix it ... and perhaps take a couple of days to get used to it????!
I was too embarrassed to go anywhere ... I could not let my husband or co-workers see me ...
I literally ran down the street to The Hair Committee.
I had never been there before, and I did not know Diane.
She was booked ... But she recognized me from the neighbourhood, and when she saw what was done to my hair, and how upset I was she told me to sit down.
Diane obviously knows what she is doing ...
She is so professional ...
She added highlights to my hair, bringing me closer to what my hair colour actually was.
I was totally stressed and quite shocked when I went in there ... when I left, I felt great.
I have found my new salon ... and my new stylist.
I would HIGHLY recommend Diane and the Hair Committee!!

Great cut, great price!
I had been to The Hair Committee before with another stylist (who no longer works there), and since I have very curly hair, I was a little skeptical about going to see someone new. I didn't need to worry - I saw Tasha, and she was amazing! She listened very carefully to understand what I wanted, asked me lots of questions, and offered me some great suggestions. She was also very conscientious about my curls, so I didn't end up losing way more length than I wanted. Tasha was also the most personable and friendly stylist I've ever had (I didn't end up awkwardly sitting silently in the chair the whole time). For students, The Hair Committee is great because they offer a great price for cuts/style for students (it's about half the price of what I used to pay). I'll definitely be going back soon!

Always amazing
So, I have been going to see Diane at the hair committee for over a decade. What can I say, she always gets my cuts right, they have varied over the years, but most importantly she always gets my blonde colour right. My "natural" blonde is changing over the years and she always manages to get the colour right so it still looks natural! I highly recommend Diane and I wouldn't imagine going anywhere else!

So normally I am incredibly cynical about getting my hair cut due to lack of good experiences. I totally took pride in my long hair, but was (cautiously) ready for a change. I had a very specific look and colour in mind. Anitya was extremely careful and asked lots of questions in order to make sure I got exactly what I wanted. The end product was phenomenal. She really took the time and effort to give me fantastic results. She is an incredibly well rounded person and definitely my go-to hair dresser from now on. I highly recommend Anitya from Hair Committee !

I Finally Found My Salon
I was referred to Diane, who was booked up for quite some time but was finally able to get an appointment after a cancellation. All I can say is I'm definitely glad I waited! She was extremely personable and professional. Everyone at the salon was very friendly. I'm from Toronto, so I know pretension and there was none of that here. Great cut and colour - thanks Hair Committee for fitting me in - I'll definitely be back.

Didn't even listen to me.
I have gone here before and had Tasha cut my hair, which was great. I went again today and had Anitya cut my hair. She was very nice. However, I had specified how I loathe getting my hair cut because I've had bad experiences, I hate short hair, and that my hair is normally curly so it will get shorter (I had it straight today). She said she would only take off 2 inches, but didn't take this into account after she washed my hair. My hair is now almost 4 inches shorter and I look like I'm 12, and it will look even worse when it's curly. I am livid and I refuse to go back. I regret making an appointment there. I am too nice to have told her I hate it but I plan on calling and complaining. Some people either shouldn't have scissors with a responsibility or they should find a brain.

I am very sorry to hear that your recent experience at the Hair Committee was not as good as your previous visits. My business prides itself on customer service and it upsets me to know you were not satisfied. I would respectfully request that you contact me directly at the salon, and hopefully you will allow me the opportunity to make things right.

After a long absence, I'm back at Hair Committee because of Tricia. Great color, great cut, very happy.
By floridagirl on Dec 09, 2011
Tricia is GREAT!
If you want a haircut done right, and the way you want it, come here and ask for TRICIA! She is so cool, hip, stylish and talented. She will never screw up your hair! Always great! Definitely go to her! She is amazing!
By non-member33015 on Jul 21, 2011
I have been coming here for about 3 years now. I am always pleased by my haircuts there and the hairstylist named Tricia is great!

Great place for mom and kids cuts too
I have been having my hair cut here (Nicole) for 4 years and now I am bringing my daughters, too. I am a bit shy about my hair and not confident about what to ask for, but always leave with something I am very happy with.

I have started bringing my daughters in and Nicole is a) super with them, and b) gives them the most fabulous kid cuts.

Only criticism is: why do they charge extra for a blow dry? It seems chintzy.

Won't go back
This is the second time I've been there. The first time my haircut wasn't great and the service was poor, but I thought I'd give another stylist a chance. This time I went with Tara, and she gave me a terrible haircut. I have shoulder length hair that just needed a trim, it shouldn't have been that hard. But it's uneven and awful. She also did a very poor job styling it afterwards, I had to go home and fix it. To top it off she just said, "you're done" and left after, didn't walk me up to the cash or anything. I won't be going back. I always say you can't really review a hair salon because it's the stylist, not the place, but two strikes and you're out.

After my stylist of many years left the business, my sister told me about her stylist, Diane and her salon. Thanks, Sis!
I am always warmly greeted when I step in, offered a beverage, have yet to sit down to wait, my cut and foils are natural and I too have to mention the fantastic grow out. And while I was happy with my previous stylist, I didn't know what I was missing. The Hair Committee is definitely worth checking out!

Hair Committee in Westborough
Both my sister and I get our hair cut with Diane. She is the best! Extremely reasonable rates and great cuts every time. ( they grow in great too!) Diane makes the experience stress free, even if you are going for a new look! One of the best things about Diane is she is always on time! I have never had to wait! Free parking on street as well in a lovely neighborhood! I highly recommend switching to this fun, relaxed salon. Enjoy!

Hair Committee Best Salon in Ottawa!
Diane is the best stylist around. She is extremely professional, does not over charge for her services and does a fantastic job. She seems to know what will look great on a person. Great ambiance, they treat their clients very well and always has a great selection of up-to-date magazines to browse through. Jamie gives great head massage. Great salon - I have been going there for seven years now and no plans to change.
