I have been searching for a high-quality salon for years and Shannel is the one! I am very pleased with the professionalism and always receive an excellent care. The salon is always nicely appointed and the staffs are friendly. My hair stylist, the owner, always takes her time to make sure my hair looks nice, and listens to what I want. My friends always ask me where I had my hair done. I could not imagine ever going anywhere else!!

I just moved to the area and was in search of a great haircut. This place was fantastic. Shanel cut my hair and the cut was excellent. I can always tell when I get a good haircut by how well it grows out. My hair kept it's style even when it grew out. Fantastic cut. And, the prices are very reasonable.

I have been going to this salon off and on for about 1.5 years now because I got introduced to Jay (hair stylist) by one of my friends. It is a relatively small salon, but I think it is a hidden gem in Annandale!
Jay is great at interacting with his clients. He actively listens to what concerns you have, what kind of style you want, et cetera. He gives excellent advice and thoroughly explains to you everything he is doing. He is one of those stylists who will actually cut off only 0.5cm off your length if that is what you ask for! If he thinks you should cut a little more, he will inform you before it actually happens. His artistry is great as far as I know. I say this because I have never really had any crazy styles of haircuts with him, so I am not too sure about his skills in shorter hair styles and whatnot. However, I have never been disappointed with his work on my shoulder length and longer hair.
The place is small because it is a local family business. The decor isn't too great and the ambiance is not top notch. I definitely look past this because Jay is so awesome, and the other people there are also very friendly and helpful. The price for the services are very reasonable as well. They definitely save me a huge chunk of change since I used to go to salons in the past who would charge me $80+ for a simple haircut. Parking is not so great either.. I'm not the greatest driver/parker, so it is a struggle sometimes for me on this uphill driveway haha x).
Overall, I think Shanel is a great business. I am very happy that I found Jay because he makes the service very pleasant and teaches you so much about hair at every visit. Definitely check it out!
