Where is the best hair salon in Vancouver DT?

Where is the best hair salon in Vancouver DT?

There are many hair salons in Vancouver downtown, so how do you choose one?

If you are looking for a hair salon with great service and professional cuts, I would recommend TSUBAKI.

TSUBAKI is a hair salon owned and operated by Japanese.


Price is affordable at $25 for a cut.


I have a preferred stylist named, Nori.

She cuts well and is also great at hair coloring!

Last time I had a highlight  ($90) and haircut.

She did a great job and I really I liked it!

If you want to get a haircut and color, ask for Nori!;)

Tell her, Mariko sent you!
