After with highlights

After - using natural curl, client shown how to 'finger twist' with a little curling cream for a more polished look.

She wanted a Jenna Elfman look, but we forgot to tuck it behind the ear like the pic she brought in. Next time.

Three brothers (and little one's first professional hair cut). I've done five generations of this family!

Long layers on previously bum length hair

She wanted to take a selfie!

And for mom, we've been growing her pixie cut out into a longer look

The wings are finally gone and the smiles say it all.

Above chin bob on otherwise very thick, curly hair (that also looks great curly).

From the back - hair was thinned to take away bulk. (We forgot to take a before pic, but it was long, thick and curly).

Another great haircut and highlights at the Prickly Scot Hair Lounge. It was my first day at work today after my appointment, and I got loads of compliments on my new style and colour!

As always an amazing experience at The Prickly Scot! Always come away with a great haircut (and/or colour!) and always great chats! See you again soon-ish!

Stephan excellent in figuring out what hairstyles look best on his clients. I found him through a friend who has been with him for years. He is also very interesting to talk to. Reasonable prices too.

Stephan is a 100% focused and dedicated. I am always excited to see my transformation, and that is exactly how I feel - transformed.

I have been a client of Stefan's for about 7 years and have sent many of my friends there. Stefan is attentive to his client's facial shape and hair type and gives a cut that suits. I can't imagine going anywhere else. Thanks Stefan!

Customer Service, Environment, Other, Quality, Wait Time as well as price. And . . . the man is a master, maybe even an artist.

Stephen - from Square

I've been going to Stephan for 16 years and counting. He's like a magician with colour, gives wonderful hair cuts and is a treat to be around.

Jay - from Google

The gentleman that did my hair did a great job. He is polite and very funny.

Leanna - from Google

Best cut ever. Highlights that are just right when it comes to choice of shade & tint. I HIGHLY recommend Stephan who has been my hairdresser for over a decade.

Cathy - from Google

Consistently great haircut. I have happily recommended Stefan for years!
(It's 'Stephan' Dara, lol)

Dara - from Google

Excellent service, great cut and style. I was also shown how to easily style my own hair. Thank you Stephan! You can't do better for the $$ either!

Melissa - from Google

Stephan is a fantastic hairdresser, my first visit was a great experience, and he was very helpful in choosing the right style for my face, hair and lifestyle. I love my new hair cut.

Rebecca - from Google

I went to Stephan today for the first time and loved it! He's wonderfully engaging, taking care of the whole experience and providing great service. I'm not one to ever chat with a hairdresser, as I'm more shy and skittish, and I didn't even notice when an hour passed, I was having so much fun! Stephan also knows really well how to treat my thin, wispy hair - something I've been struggling with since I moved to Vancouver.

Best haircut I’ve had in ages!!

Samantha - from Square

Best hairdresser I've ever had. As a guy, I've been looking for a long time for a hairdresser like Stephan who actually takes the time to talk to me about what I want and what I'll look good with then comes up with a plan. Also know I'll be in for a good chat every time I come in!
