After many bad haircuts & thinking I knew what hairstyle would suit my face, I decided to do my homework & find a new stylist. I read the excellent reviews & picked Odyssey. Tim is like a fortuneteller. He spent 45 min. giving me a consultation. He was able to tell me what hair colour product I had been using & for how long. He pulled my hair back & showed me that I was hiding the shape of my face behind a curtain of hair. For the first time I dared to put my hair into someone else's hands. I was worried. 15 minutes later Tim created a layered hairstyle I love. There was very little hair on the floor, but a completely new style. In fact, my hair looked longer than before he started. He showed me how to style & maintain it. I booked another appointment before leaving the salon. Next time we are going to experiment with colour. Looking forward to my next appointment. Thanks Tim.

Did a really good job with my hair - getting it to the colour I wanted and trimming the amount I wanted :D Going from brunette to blonde is a really big change for me and Tim did a great job in making the blonde-look on me look amazing and suits me! Thumbs up!!

I'd like to thank Tim for helping me on many occasions to always fix my screw ups in my colour choices. He's blunt but fantastic. He also did the styling for my wedding and I couldn't have been happier with how great he was! He wouldn't let me leave in til I was absolutely beaming ear to ear. I couldn't thank him enough for putting up with my fussy butt! You need anything haornrelated, he's your man! ❤THANK YOU TIM!

I spent hours with Tim today and it only felt like a short time. Such a real and talented person. He treats his clients like family and completely and totally transformed a mess I made to my hair over years in just one day. My hair feels soft and happy and looks like it feels. I have been terrified to go to a salon for years as I have naturally curly hair and am not trusting of others messing with my hair. He is a professional. And honest. And so good at what he does!! I am ecstatic. So grateful.
By Susan Koala on Jan 01, 2017
I just had my hair cut by Tim for the first time. Tim took the time to discuss my concerns and get to know me. I went in with one idea and left with another. I am so happy with the mutual decision regarding my hair. I look forward to my next visit!

Please do not waste your time going anywhere else, this man knows what he is talking about. Tim has the experience, knowledge and proficiency of a well qualified hairstylist/salon master! Growing up, my mother would only take me to the best and top salon and stylists. I had long thick naturally curly hair, shiny and soft, full of life and always receiving compliments. My mother taught me at a young age if you are going to cut your hair, you need someone that knows how to cut with your natural curl. It is a skill and not everyone has it. My mother could cut my hair (when she was well, no longer here), my sister is a professional stylist and has worked in a top salon, has her own salon, (unfortunately distance now separates us) and I made the unfortunate mistake of trusting other stylists that said they knew what they were doing. (I made the mistake and should of known better, shame on me.) My beautiful hair was sadly and totally hacked, fried and ruined. I did some research found Tim thinking should I give this one more try, to try and save what was left of my hair. I found Tim, met with him and he spoke the language. He is honest, genuine and caring. He spoke to me about things I understood because of my previous knowledge (things once again, I should of known better from the other unqualified people). Cutting hair is a skill. It take years to learn and you have to like it and care. Anyone can go to school and get a diploma. Anyone can cut and colour and make your hair look good at first( or ruin it). Once the damage is done, good luck. I now have a few years to grow out the mess others have made. You cannot fix it once it is broke. Tim did his first cut and colour on me and WOW what a difference! It will take some time, this I know and I am leaving it with him. He is old school and has experience, he cares, he knows what he is doing and will not do something to your hair that will ruin it. Please put your faith and trust in his hands.

I moved to St. Catharine's 5 years ago and jumped from hair salon to hair salon trying to find somebody who actually knew how to cut and colour hair. What an ordeal. 2 years ago, I came across Odyssey online and had nothing to lose so I called. My search is over.

A visit at Odyssey isn't just a hair appointment, it's an experience. From the terrific cut, colour and style to the wonderfully friendly atmosphere, everything about Odyssey is amazing. Tim takes the time to really help. It is obvious he loves what he does. I've never been happier with how my hair looks and feels and my daugher and son have also become regular clients.

If you're looking for a place with disinterested 23 year olds or cascading wall fountains, go elsewhere. If you're looking for a place to get the best hair cut and colour you have ever had by a person who is very knowledgable and has a passion for hair sculpting, give Odyssey a call. *** Janet

I have been a customer for over 40 years, along with my husband. They are very personable and it is a very clean establishment. They do a fantastic job on our hair every time we have an appointment. They are a reasonably priced salon. I have always been a satisfied customer.

By Christine Giant-squid on Aug 24, 2016
I am a new customer and the service that I have received from Tim is both professional and knowledgeable. I have had horrible experiences with other salons. I was recommended to try Tim and I am so glad I did!!!
Thank you Tim for the exceptional job you have done for me!!
By Heather Pilot-whale on Aug 23, 2016
I would not even consider going to another stylist. He has done some pretty amazing jobs on my hair.Always a pleasure.

By Green Magpie on Aug 23, 2016
I have been a customer of Tim's for over two years now, and I am extremely picky and very conscious of my appearance throughout daily activity!
And I can assure you that when I first discovered the Odyssey, the hairstylist immediately identified what I was lacking and what was needed! I have never had a problem once Or any negativity towards me!
Since then I have never gone anywhere else or even considered going elsewhere, mind you I'm a 45 minute drive away.

I'm upset that my original review was taken down as I feel that I was honest and reasonable with my review.
I will try again...
I totally agree with the comment below me.
I was also taken aback by the cigarette smoke. The salon was also very dirty.
Tim praised his himself and his awards and mastery.
I had asked him to trim my hair and add layers. He round-brushed the front layers that frame my face however, I did notice that both sides weren't even so I asked him to double check MY WHOLE HEAD to ensure everything matched. He said he did.
Once I got home and my hair fell flat, I realized he forgot to cut one side of my head completely. I had one-length hair so it was totally noticeable that one side was layered (horrible layers too) and the other side had not been touched. I was contemplating calling him, coming back to get my hair fixed or to have my money returned however, I realized I really didn't want him touching my hair again as now I didn't believe he would even know how to fix it.
I went two days later to another salon that completely re-did my hair.
I will never go back or recommend Odyssey Salon.
By Coquelicot Parrotfish on Aug 17, 2016
I have just had an amazing experience with Tim the 'Master' colorist. His keen sense of determining skin tone and eye color to create the most natural hair color is astounding. He has an amazing ability to create custom hair colors and can juggle clients around the salon keeping everything flowing smoothly. The humor in the salon is a breath of fresh air. No political correctness here....just say it like it is! I felt very welcomed and comfortable and will recommend Odyssey Salon to all my friends so that they can experience the 'Master' at work too! Thanks Tim...I LOVE my hair color!

Was excited to try this salon after reading the reviews. One of the worst salon experiences I've ever had. Have serious lung issues, and I walked into this salon that stunk of cigarette smoke. I told Tim I was having trouble breathing. Only then did he put on his air cleaner. Who allows smoking in a salon? He tried to wash out my colour only after 25 minutes. I told him it needs to stay in for 45 minutes. Still my hair is washed out and dry. The hair cut is just awful. I asked if he put layers in my hair because it is to thick to be one length. He said he did. No layers, now my hair is a thick unmanageable bush. No originality, boring mess. I paid $90 for a cut and colour. He is not cheap. I should have called him immediately for my money back. Never going back there again

It's too bad they don't have private messaging on this website because I would recommend a salon for you where you can go get your hair fixed. The person saved my hair.
By c.mcclure Quail on Aug 11, 2016
I went to Tim for the first time a few weeks 20 year old daughter has been going to him for about a year now.. I am so glad I went there, he did a colour correction and a great haircut. I am now a dedicated customer. He made me feel comfortable and asked a lot of questions pertaining to my hair( which has some issues) and I know that he is on top of his game, with the latest colours, cuts, and general knowledge in his field. I highly recommend anyone wishing to change out of there current rut...try this salon you will be very happy you did.

My mom found Tim on the Internet years ago and what a treasure he is! Kind, caring, and knowledgeable, he listens to what you want and unpretentiously tells you what is best for your hair as he works his magic. What is more, his prices are very reasonable. You leave with a smile on your face, and your hair looks so natural and feels amazing. The other high reviews are no exaggeration. Beware of trolls among the reviewers. The salon is impeccable! I am allergic to smoke and my mother has asthma. We would not be going there if there were even a hint of smoke in the air. As a matter of fact, I am going back with my niece and her two youngsters, in town for a visit this week, to get ready for back-to-school!

Tim takes the time to assess your hair and comes up with a plan to improve your look tailored to your needs and wants.
I wish I had found him years ago.
By traceydickson101589 on Jun 20, 2016
I started going to see Tim 3 years ago, after I got the worst cut and color of my life at Shear Image Salon in my home town of Grimsby. To make matters worse they thinned my naturally curly hair and that of my 3 yr old daughters to the point where she was almost bald at the crown of her head.
Since then I've never looked back, my hair color and cut has never been so good since I moved here 9 years ago from the UK.
