House Of Lords Hair Design


639 Yonge Street
TorontoON
M4Y 1Z9
It’s tough to miss this glitzy Yonge Street institution, prominently located on the main strip just south of Bloor. Known as much for the music and the vibe as it is for the style and the service, House of Lords promises a hair care experience unlike any other in the city.

Populated by students, “EOY” (east of Yonge) locals and various downtown scenesters, the atmosphere at House of Lords is intense. Business is always bustling, and the speakers are always booming with high-energy house music. But it’s not all flash and glamour – the stylists are skilled, courteous, and reliable, and there are always plenty of professionals on hand. First-timers and drop-ins are always welcome, and they never have to wait more than a few minutes for service. Of course, appointments are available, and it’s not unusual for regulars to become loyal to their stylist.

The prices are tough to beat and the time investment is minimal. A typical cut is quick and efficient, so customers can expect salon-quality style without sacrificing an entire afternoon.

    I had my haircut at the House of Lords about 2-3 months ago by a young british guy called Tyler. Sadly he is no longer working there - does anybody know who I'm talking about, and would they happen to know where he works now, as I really liked the way he cut my hair, and I'm bummed that he no longer work there...

    COLOUR DISASTER

    I went in to get my hair coloured and cut. Vanessa did this, really nice girl-super easy going, confident and funny but what left a sour taste in my mouth was that my dye job turned green (I can assure you I did not go swimming). I decided to go to another place and they told me that I needed a colour correction. My hair had turned from dark brown to copper-y green in less than a month.
    So while the price was good at the time, I had to get it corrected which cost double what I paid at HOL.
    Beware of the lighting in there, it will be the death of your hair.

      I am the stylist mentioned in this review. I wish the person who left it had contacted me. I give each client a list of instructions on how to care for colored hair and if followed I guarantee all my work. Color correction is tricky work and it doesn't always take on the first go, especially if the hair was light and we're taking it dark again. The client who wrote this review could have saved herself a lot of money if she would have called the salon and talked to me. I probably would have corrected it for FREE. it sucks that this client chose to sully my name online without letting me try and correct the situation.

    I wouldn't recommend all the stylists at House of Lords, but if you make an appointment with Vanessa you can't go wrong! Some stylists don't listen; Vanessa is the BEST listener ever! She really makes an effort to understand your vision as a customer and make that vision happen on your head. I used to be afraid to get my hair cut, now I look forward to getting it done :)

    VANESSA ROCKS

    I hate getting my hair cut because I feel awkward around strangers, but the first time I went to house of lords I was lucky enough to be sent to vanessa. this was two years ago and Im still going back. Her prices are reasonable, she's friendly and great to talk to, and I always end up with a great cut that still looks great weeks later when I go home :)

    HIT OR MISS

    Beware, This place is very hit or miss, from my own experiences and from what I've heard from my friends and other reviewers. If you get a good stylist, stick with them. Otherwise, theres a 50/50 chance your hair will either turn out great, or a complete disaster.

    First of all, let me tell you about my experience the first time I went there; completely horrible. I met up with my mum after school yesterday and proceeded to the hair salon. After speaking with the receptionist, I was directed to a female stylist, whose name I didn't catch because the music is way too bloody loud.

    On top of that, I think we were right by the speakers, or she was speaking quietly because I couldn't hear a thing she said. We exchanged pleasantries, and then I showed her the picture of the style I wanted.

    She then led me to another stylist because she wasn't able to do it, which is perfectly fine with me. I have had so many bad hair cuts, and so many hair stylists tell me they can do the cut I want, and then go and completely mess it up. The other stylist I was taken to said, "Hi," then told me to sit down. I was kind of put off by that, because I don't mind if Hair dressers choose not to make small talk, but I at least say hello and ask them how their day is.

    Please, please, PLEASE! If you get this stylist, run far away. She is a flat out bitch(I have provided a description of her at the end). I show her the picture and her first words were, "This is a really blurry photo honey." Well no shit, sherlock it's from a bloody printer! She then asked me how I wanted it done, which put me off again, I mean, I showed her a picture. Now, so you can understand my fear, the hairstyle I wanted was a mohawk, specifically a death hawk. If she screwed it up, I'd have to go bald.

    So I told her I didn't want to be bald on the sides, but I wanted stubble. I'm sure most people reading this know what stubble is, but this woman did not. She the asked me "Like what, 1 or 2 inches?" So I asked her "Um, I don't mean to be rude, but have you done a mohawk before?"

    I then told her about my past experiences, and how my haircuts always turned out bad, so she could understand that I was bit nervous, especially since I was going from shoulder length hair, to a mohawk.

    The next thing she said was "Well that is a rude question, you think we don't do mohawks here?" To which I thought, Well I don't know, I've never been here before, and I was asking if YOU could do mohawks, not the salon itself.

    She then said "Come up to the front," and marched up to the front desk, and yelled so the whole salon could here, "Can you get a guy to cut her hair? She has no confidence in women."

    Not only was she a total bitch, but she mistook me for a girl! And I am not feminine looking at all. I didn't even stick around, I walked right out of the salon. An employee came over when we were preparing to leave and apologized for her behaviour, she said the woman was rude to everyone, and wouldn't recommend getting your hair cut by her.

    I ended up coming back the next day, because I badly needed my hair cut and I heard House Of Lords was the place to go.So I went back with my mum the next day, and this time specified that I wanted a death hawk done. The owner was chilling at the front desk with the receptionist, and hit on my mum, he was quite funny, and very relaxed which made me feel a lot better about the place.

    The stylist I got is named Anthony, and I'd definately
    recommend him. He cut my hair like in the picture, but tweaked it a bit to suit me, which I really appreciate. He also removed the dye stains from my scalp at no extra cost(I dyed my hair black like 4 days ago and it stained my scalp quite badly), and he told me all about where mohawks came from and the punk movement in England, which I quite enjoyed.

    Anthony is an amazing stylist and I'd definately go back to him, especially for more extreme hair cuts. The cut only cost me $35 and he gave me the option to have my hair washed or not. I declinded because I'm a hydrophobe, and I hate when other people wash and/or dye hair.

    Stylist to go to: Anthony, he's British-African, and has short dreads with a red patch at the front. Very nice, very reasonable, and is a god when it comes to cutting hair.

    Stylist to run far away from: The bitch didn't even tell me her name, but she is quite short, quite fat, and has long light brown hair, wears glasses, and is middle-aged. Stay the hell away from her, she's not worth it.

    So in closing, I rate this place 5 stars because of the stylist I got and the general atmosphere. Some of the employees are really nice, and actually give a damn about you. The music is very loud, and I don't quite enjoy the place, but I enjoyed my time with Anthony.

      Anthony Has Moved
      February 17th, 2012

      Like most men, I've gotten my hair cut by a TON of men's stylist. I have to say, though, now that I've found Anthony, I'm never going to anyone else again.

      He's got a great attitude and is a visionary when it comes to styling hair.

      He just knows what'll look good on you and how to execute.

      As a friend of Anthony, I have to report that he's moved from House of Lords to Krome Roses in Kensington market: http://anthonyfromhouseoflords.blogspot.com/

      He's worth every penny.

    Vanessa. I have been going to her for over a year now and she always makes me look amazing! Color is definitely her language, and a little free reign and she will change your life!

    SAD

    I've been going to see Crista on and off for two years since I live here and in the States. She always gave me a great affordable cut and amazing colour. One time I was there and the Owner and his wife were arguing, obviously intoxicated. It kind of freaked me out. Crista assured me that everything was okay and not to worry about it and went along with her business. Another time I was in, and a guy did my hair because it was Crista's day off. The owner, this old weird hippy came by and started making weird remarks to me. Like he was coming on to me. My stylist just laughed and said that he was like that. I called the other day since I'm in town for another two weeks and it seems Crista is gone and I don't remember the name of the guy who did my hair before. I won't go back there because the music is far too loud and the owners are really weird. I'll find somewhere else to go, it just isn't worth the hassle.

    Hellin'
