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).

And then, six weeks later, she said she always wanted to do this, so we did! She loved it. Freeing!

Before. He really wanted a new slicker look, and showed some pics of his ultimate goal...

So we started him off  with a little flat ironing and growing it longer and undercutting which actually achieved the goal he thought would take months.

Post Covid - from shoulder length to short and undercut on one side.

Post Covid, fine hair she wanted to look thicker and have shape.

Blending salt and pepper with blonde highlights.

Before: This is years of home cutting and bleaching.

Before: This is years of home cutting and bleaching.

After: She always wanted to try a modern shag.

After: Lots of specialised layers for a modern shag look.

After: Lots of specialised layers for a modern shag look, which looks great in its natural curly state too.

I've done these boys' hair since they were born. Both want a longer look now.

Before: Pandemic hair. Grey and dark roots. Not cut or highlighted in 8 months (she used to come every 6 weeks!)

After: Blonde highlights & light brown slices to restore it for a youthful look while maintaining the new length she grew over Covid.

Item After: Blonde highlights & light brown slices to restore it for a youthful look while maintaining the new length she grew over Covid.

After: Restored and happy that her sister no longer thinks she's turning into one of those old hippy ladies who don't care about their hair.

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.

Jennifer - from Square

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!

Amazing professional. Would definitely visit again.

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.

(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!

Chris - from Google

I wish there is a button for infinite stars coz 5 stars alone cannot define my satisfaction. I am never heading to any other saloon when I am in Vancouver. but I already loved him from going through the website and loved him even more when I met him. He is fun and sarcastic and you will never get bored in his company. You will learn a lot about your hair and better ways to maintain it from him.
