I have not been to a GOOD salon for a very long time, let alone seen an EXCELLENT stylist and colourist! I moved from the city to the country and hair upkeep has been low on my list. After several poor cuts, I gave up and just decided I would get it cut short 2-3x a year and then let it grow, it grows fast! Due to my ignoring my hair for the past 5 years, it was “virginal” again and had no colour treatments, so Karly had a great canvas to start with! When I knew that I would be flying across the country over 5600km I booked an appointment with Karly Menzies of the Cutting Room Creative and left my hair alone long after it should have been cut. Karly was amazing! She knew I needed something that was easy to take care of, something that would make me feel vibrant again and that I was pretty open to whatever she wanted to do. My only stipulations were, some sort of blonde, no buzz cut and short and easy. WOW! She blew me away! She was so careful, knowledgeable and professional with her treatment. At the end, after hours in the chair, lots of foils, a variety of colours, blow dryers and straighteners, my hair felt and LOOKED wonderful! I would highly recommend Karly, in fact I handed her cards out all over town while I was in Nanaimo, BC! She did wonders with my hair, created a style that made me look and feel good, left my hair feeling healthy and truly exceeded my expectations! I have only one problem with Karly… I have NO idea when I will be on the west coast again and able to go see her! If you are looking for a salon where the owners care about their staff, where the staff excel at what they do and where you can relax, you will definitely find it at The Cutting Room Creative, Nanaimo! Thanks Karly! 5 STARS 🙂

“Christine is fantastic! I have long thick dark hair. She did a great job getting rid of the weight and the layering she did is beautiful. I look forward to my next appointment with her. Thanks Christine!! I was a very happy client and my hair is so easy to manage now AND LOOKS GREAT :)”

” I have been a client for a few years and have nothing but positive praise for all the staff. They are all up to date on the latest techniques and product lines. A special shout out to Karly for the straightening treatment last week. I love my “new” hair.”
