I am not sure why some people gave this salon good review. After reading them, I decided to take my daughter to get her hair cut and styled. The whole experience was horrible!!!!!. Yen would spend long time to serve a young men, talking and laughing loudly while leaving my daughter to her assistant who even didn't know how to hold a hair curling iron. My daughter ended up with a hair of uneven,fuzzy braid. The job was so lousy that I could have done better. Why should I spend time and money to go this place?

I've had a really awesome experience at Verve. A year ago, I went to First Choice Hair Cutter's and they completely RUINED my short hair. I'm being completely honest when I say that my Rhianna haircut looked like half a duster.

I went to Yen, who fixed my hair completely and I am never going to anyone else from now on. She gave me what I wanted, plus when it started to grow out, it still remained in its proper place and did not look messy (which was a concern I had because i have very thick and coarse hair). This is the woman to go to if you need your hair cut. She knows where your hair will fall and how it will fall even when it grows out. She takes her time and is very passionate about hair.

I've never gone to anyone else since. Verve tops all the other hair salons. Everyone who works there is great! I walk out with a boost of confidence because my hair is edgy and professional.

After years of complimenting a colleague of mine, I decided to find out who her stylist was. She recommended Yen from Verve Hair Design - I have had a great experience so far and it gets better with time (seriously!). Yen and her team are personable, they made me feel at home from the moment I came in. They always check in and have a standard offer of making sure clients get what they want - just let them know if you need a touch up - That's more then reasonable. I've been going back for the past 7 months and introduced my sister to Yen!

So if you're wondering if it's worth a shot, why not try? You can see first hand why Yen's always so busy. Someone recommended me, and I recommended someone else.

I read a lot of great reviews, so a friend and I visited for a hair cut. We booked an appointment, but ended up having to wait 45 minutes before she was ready to take us. They were very friendly and offered us water as it was summer. My friend got a cut from Yen, and it was mediocre. A very basic trim and it wasn't even styled nice, as her next customer was waiting. She paid 50$ and could have gotten a better job elsewhere for much less. My haircut was good, but for that price I at least expected the salon to look a little more upscale and better decorated, with more time spent on a hair consultation.

My hair is curly.dry and freezy.Ispend so much time fixing and managing it.I have tried and spent many kinds of hair treatment
but as soon as I shampoo my hair,2-3 days the problem is back.My
sister encouraged me to go to VERVE and I met Yen a very experienced
and with a down to earth personality.Yen did an organic smoothing
treatment to my hair,fixed my unproportional haircut.Now my hair is very smooth,bouncy and shiny.Yen,thank you so much i love u,my hair
is lovely.I highly recommend Verve and hair design.

I've been a client of Yen's going on 3 years now and every single time I've gone to Yen I've left ecstatic about my new hair. Verve is always alive with beautiful conversation and amazing new hair ideas. I trust Yen 100% of the time, which leads me to recommend Verve Hair Design, Yen and her entire staff to anyone, anywhere!

For years I've been going from place to place trying to find a salon where I would get quality cuts for my hair. One day I decided to go to Verve and was pleasantly surprised. Not only do they have high quality service, Yen is also one of the most skillful stylist I've been to. Not only is she a pleasant person but she understood exactly what I wanted my hair to look like and feel like. Before, I would be very nervous to get a haircut because I'd worry about how my hair would look like afterwards, but now with Yen, I am relaxed and worry-free as I trust and have full confidence in her and after every cut I feel amazing.

I went to do colouring at Verve as well and I was also very satisfied with the turn out. They were very attentive about what colour I wanted to achieve and even though my hair used up three whole bottles of dye (I have thick hair) the price was still very fair (paid around $70 for wash, colour and dye).

Another thing I'd like to mention are the hair washes. I didn't know there was much technique to hair washing but there certainly is at Verve. Every hair wash is a wash and massage combined into one! It is very relaxing and soothing!

All in all a great place with quality service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone!

My regular hairstylist is on mat leave and I wanted to try some place new. This was the first time going to this place and I have no idea what the hype is about. I JUST came back from this place and I had the worst experience EVER! I've asked to get my hair dyed and highlighted and if they are able to do it within 1.5 hours. They said yes. I specifically asked for Yen cause EVERYONE was praising her in the reviews.

Yen asked me what i wanted, barely listened and left me with her assistant. Her assistant didn't know what she was doing. She started to dye my hair and didn't do my roots. Yen yelled at her and she came back to finish the roots. Realizing her assistant had no idea what she was doing, Yen didn't even attend to me. Her assistant rinsed off my hair and didn't shampoo it, until Yen asked about it. She took me back to shampoo the chemicals our of my hair. They didn't have time to do my highlights. Yen came back to blow dry my hair. Didn't even ask how i wanted it.

It took 2 hours to just dye my hair. No cut. no highlights. No styling. My hair is really simple. Long and straight and is not difficult to deal with at all. It usually takes 2 hours to get my hair cut, dyed and highlighted at other places.

I paid $90 for a half ass dye job and for "blow drying". I didn't tip them. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I wouldn't come back and trust them to highlights! I would not recommend this place at all.

I came into the salon with a cut and colour done by another salon that I was completely unsatisfied with and Yen knew exactly what to do to fix it. If I had been able to cut and colour my own hair, it would have turned out the way it did.
I'm totally happy with the way I was treated and my new look; thanks Yen and helper.

I got highlights in my hair today and a wash and stykle and Yen did an amazing job! I brought her a picture of what i wanted and i came out of Verve Hair Salon with what i wanted and more! Even if you go into the salon not knowing exactly what you want, Yen uses her own exceptional opinions to give you a look that you'll end up loving!

I also wanted to add that Yen is great at reading what people need -- she considers your work schedule, lifesyle, etc. when styling or coloring your hair. Trust her! She knows what she's doing! - Amanda Look

Yen is an amazing lady she work so hard and I love the way she does my hair I can't complain.I'm very picky with who touches my hair especially cutting and know i don't have to worry about Yen touching my hair i have so much confidence.Since I have work and been a client at Verve My whole family comes to get there hair done and they like the results get from Yen, she knows what she doing.Yen is a wonderful person, right when you walk in even though she doesn't know you she welcomes you with a warming smile like if she new you for a long time ,she is easy to talk to if you need to ask any questions she will tell you exactly what you need and is a good listener.

Thank You Yen
Love Caroline Coloma-Mendoza!

I cannot recommend Yen and her team highly enough. My every single experience in the salon has been good for body and soul ... have been treated like a queen every time and have felt thoroughly cared for throughout. Yen herself listens so well ... which when combined with her skill and a vision for what might look best, has always left me feeling completely satisfied with my hair when I leave. The scalp massages and manicures are also a real treat!

I've been going to the Verve for over a year now. I read a lot of good reviews about how Yen (the owner and stylist) pampers and accomodates her clients so I checked the place out. True to their testimonies, Yen gives only the finest service indeed. She never fails to greet me all-smiles by my first name whenever I come. She also gives me very good rates. Just today, I came in for a haircut but she added in a free hair treatment worth $25 and hand cream all because my birthday is coming up. I didn't even know she does that there! I was extremely grateful for that. Her new assistant, Nancy, was very nice too.

Yen's passion for what she is doing shows in how she deals with her clients. She pays a great deal of attention to them and what they want. I always leave the place not only looking better but also feeling better.

I always look forward to going to the Verve. It is nice to have the owner herself look after you and treat you not just as a customer, but also as someone she cares about. More power to Yen and the Verve.

I have been going to Yen for about 5 years now and I'm sure there are other great people out there in this profession but there is no woman like Yen. She wil come in early or stay late even if it requires her to sit around and wait for you but that is what she does. She does exactly what I ask for and does a terrific job. She is a delight to be around. I wish her all the best because she deserves it.

yen is a great Hair Dresser....she makes you look pretty when you leave...whenever I go somewhere else to save money I end up having to spend more to get fixed by yen...she is friendly and gives you VIP treatment...
By Ash123 on May 02, 2009
I come to Verve all the way from Kitchener for the warm, professional service and trendy, upscale atmosphere. Whether I know exactly what I want in a haircut and colour or need a new look and want some creative direction to get there, this salon delivers. I'll be back!!
