About Us

Located in Ottawa’s up and coming Hintonburg neighbourhood, The Hair Salon was created in February 2012, through the dream, determination and drive of its’ owner, Natalie Turcotte. The signature red scissors, hanging as a beacon since day one, have become a fixture along Wellington Street West.

The Hair Salon brings a colourful twist to this eclectic neighbourhood of young couples and growing families. Time spent in The Hair Salon can be divided between the hair side and spa side. In our hair department, we strive to provide our clients with creative bold colours, on point trend haircuts and power blow outs. While visiting our spa side, clients may choose to be pampered by a luxurious facial, manicure or pedicure.

Whatever services you choose at The Hair Salon, you can be sure that we will provide you with a professional, relaxing and quality experience where your needs are paramount.

Testimonials

Tish

I love love love my new haircut.  I also loved how much you talked to me about all of the pictures I gave you and throughout the entire haircut.  I’ve always wanted someone like you but hadn’t experienced it until the day you cut my hair.  You were the first hairdresser that really listened.

I find the pace to be slightly different at THS. When it’s time to go over what is we’re going to do, I find extra time is taken to explore available options and fully understand the choice that is made. I just got my hair cut, but I’m looking forward to my hair growing in so I can head back and have the same treatment.

Megan Bew-Prikker

My daughter just loves her new style – very edgy for grade 4! LOL! Thanks so much for the wonderful job today and every time we come in. My son has always hated getting his hair cut until we started bringing him to you….and that is not just because of the donuts!!!

As a person with thin hair it is hard to find someone you trust to take care of the little bit of hair you have. I have luckily been able to find that person, and she is Jess from THS. Today was my first time having my hair coloured professionally, and Jess did such an amazing job! I left the salon feeling beautiful.

The Hair Salon is my baby! I love being a salon owner. I have been building my craft for over a decade, travelling and attending education to better my knowledge and understand what it means to be a team lead.  The beauty industry was my calling from a very young age. It never mattered what my Barbie dolls were wearing, just as long as their hair was done.

My favorite service that I offer in The Hair Salon is wash and blow dry.  If you ask around, my clients will agree to this statement. I have been called the blow dry queen and you will hear me say, the best part of my day is blow drying.  I want to give you a double identity with your hair.   So, if I can give you a haircut, that you have more than one option on how to finish it, then I have achieved my goal with you.

When I am not standing behind my chair, you can find me playing hockey in both summer and winter and/or fulfilling my passion for running. Remaining physically active is a priority for keeping my body healthy. I love being a hair stylist. I love meeting new clients and I love having my own business.

My passion for the beauty industry was sparked in high school when I was lucky enough to have incredibly passionate teachers in my hair styling courses. They encouraged me to take the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program which gave me the push to continue into post secondary and finish my apprenticeship. I absolutely love how a new look can completely transform how a person looks and feels, giving someone the power of confidence to continue through their days is what keeps my passion and creative flare alive.

 

My favourite things about hairdressing are the clients and the always changing trends and looks.

Hair has the potential to transform a person’s look and the salon experience has the potential to transform a person’s mood. I believe clients should feel great about their hair and leave the salon feeling relaxed and happy.

The most satisfying aspect of my job is giving clients a hairstyle that is maintainable for them, suits their hair type, personal taste and lifestyle. Learning new techniques and trends enables me to do this. I can then pass this knowledge onto clients so as they are able to style and manage their own hair at home.
