833 King St W #5 Toronto ON M5V 1N9
This guy has dropped his game a long time ago. He used to be known for being good with colour but the few times I visited he botched the colours so badly. He destroyed it on the night of my graduation, where I specifically told him it was important, and styled it so bad that I could have legitimately done it better myself. Came over today because I figured what I needed him to do (dye the ends of my hair to match the rest) would be an easy task and I didn't want to track across town for such a simple task. He took the slight colour difference I had and made my ends almost BLACK (I'm naturally a medium-light ash). He also didn't even bother to brush out my hair just dropped it from a pony tail and started going at it. He SAW that he messed up and told me that it will fade with washing. AND he took my money. Literally zero people in his salon, but he acts like he's always busy. DO NOT go there if you want a good job or at least fair, courteous service.
I recently got my hair done at this salon. I walked in as a blonde (more on the copper side hoping to change to a more honey or ash tone)and walked out with almost black hair with white highlights, which shines green. To make the situation worse, the highlights start about half an inch away from my scalp and are. I look like I have about a month's worth of growth on my hair. I am disgusted with how my roots look and can do nothing about it because the process damaged my hair so much it is breaking off.
I have extremely thick, curly hair and was nervous to try Capelli Colori at first. But, my nerves went away in just over an hour after Bernard finished a beautiful set of high lights. He was so quick and so efficient and I have never been happier with my hair. I have tried way too many expensive salons in the city and they totally ripped me off. Bernard did my high lights, and gave me trim for under $100!!! This is amazing in Toronto and I will definitely return when my roots start growing in.
My greys are coming faster and faster, which has forced me to get bad dye jobs all over. I have tried several salons, which always dyed my hair way too dark....apparently I have ``difficult hair.`` I walked into Capelli not knowing anything about it and finally got great highlights and overall colour. On top of that, highlights and oevrall colour AND a blowdry were less than a $100. The place could use a renovation but who cares! The results were fantastic.
My entire family has been going to see Bernardo for over 5 years and while we've tried other salons & barbershops in the city, we always return to Bernardo because he honestly does the best job. Most of all, he'll always make himself available for you whenever you'd like, great hours, great service and a great guy. Don't let the salon's sign mislead you, this place is 5 star!
I have been going to Bernardo for years and a few times I have strayed but I always go back because no one compares. He is very upfront with his prices which are considerably lower than other salons which tell you how much for highlights but charge you on top of this price to blow dry your hair...I never understood this. I highly recomend this small salon in King West!
I completely agree with the other comments. Hightlights are excellent. I have had many bad experiences at other more expenseive salons yet Bernard always gets them right. I have been going to him for many years. His assistant Anna is very sweet. Haircuts are inconsistent. Sometimes better than others.
I've been going to Bernard for 7 years, excellent hightlights, consistent colour, does exactly what you want for an amazing price - tried other more "trendy" places a couple of times but always came back because he was better! cuts not as consistent, still ok but highlights are the best.
Bernard is masterful at hilites. I have been going to him for over 3 years and he is quick and precise at doing a full-head of blond hilites on my thick, unruly hair! For the price (under $100) this cannot be beat. Anna his assistant is a total sweetheart! I've never had hilites look sooo amazing without needing a toner.
