“I have been going to Onaré Salon for a couple of years and I love it! Ashley does my colour and I always leave feeling great. She makes suggestions and I always tell her to do what she thinks would look good on me and I have always been extremely pleased with the way it turns out. She never disappoints and I know I can count on her to always do a fantastic job. The bonus is that she is a pleasure to talk to and she is a very sweet person as well. Jessie does my cut and styling and I am so happy with her skills. She always discusses with me what she thinks would look good and shows me how to style it like she does. I am growing my hair from a very short cut and she has been a tremendous help so that it always looks great even during the transition stage. She is so friendly and kind and she always makes me feel at ease. Go there and I’m sure you will love it and definitely you will become a loyal client!”- Anonymous

“I have been going to Onaré for years and have never had a bad cut or colour with them. Ashley who does my colour is outstanding. She knows exactly what I need and her talents and service is exceptional. Every recommendation she has given me to try and change it up a bit has been right on. Thank you Ashley for all that you do.” – jamie2015

I used to dream about styling hair for the covers of famous magazines from the time I began my career as a hairstylist in Sudbury, Ontario. As fate would have it, I met Elmer Olsen (Canada’s Top Model scout) at a model search contest. When Elmer learned of my extensive training at some of the world’s top facilities, he handed me a business card and told me to call him if I was ever in the Toronto area. I took him up on his offer, and after just one hair cut, he began to send over all of his girls. One of those girls was Daria Werbowy. Working together, Elmer and I transformed Daria’s hair from bleached blonde to light brown. We also reshaped and restyled her old cut, which allowed her to grow her hair out to what is now known as her signature look. Today, she is one of the world’s most popular models, having done campaigns for Lancôme, H&M and Italian Vogue to name a few.

At the height of her career–and mine–I was requested to style her hair for three covers of Flare Magazine. Since that time, I have designed and implemented a rigorous training program, and built a team of the most talented stylists, to ensure that every Onaré hairstyle lives up to the quality we have become known for.

Onaré is home to Canada’s 2006 Session Stylist of the Year (Contessa Awards: Session Hairstylist) in Mississauga, Ontario.
