Hair Republic Beauty Lounge

Got a cut and colour last week!
Really, really love the colour - the stylist did an amazing good job 🙂 5/5

For the cut, I’m slightly sad as my hair is much shorter than I anticipated.
I just wanted to clean up the ends, maybe take off like 1-2cm in length but I’m realizing now my hair is quite shorter than requested.
For reference, the first pic was taken 1 month ago (I imagine my hair was even longer prior to the cut) and the second pic is the length of my hair today.
The haircut part of the service was also probably under 7 minutes so it was odd being charged for the a full cut. (Though Im not sure how the services/prices are broken down)
3.5/5 stars for my overall experience

I know hair grows back but a girl just wanted long lush hair for the summmeerrrr :’( :’( :’(
I'm incredibly disappointed with my experience here. I booked a full balayage and walked out with a full head of highlights- the stylist only used foils. I booked with a senior stylist expecting to get a great result and instead I got the worst dye job of my life. I wanted to have a nice, subtle, blended dark blonde/caramel balayage and my hair is super light and STRIPEY. I expressed to the stylist that I needed warm tones but she insisted on neutral beige. My natural hair has a red tint to it so this colour clashes and looks incredibly unnatural. I took a photo of my roots just to see and they look awful. I showed many photos of what I wanted and my hair doesn't even look close to any of them. Now I am questioning how I am going to fix this as I probably need to have colour blended from my root downwards to make it look more natural and seamless. They offered a complimentary toner but that won't fix the terrible lightening job that was done on my hair and took close to 4 hours.

Update: They did a complimentary root smudge and colour melt with toner, and I like my hair much more now. See second and third photos. I would have loved to have had this look while keeping my virgin hair at my roots intact, but I'm satisfied with the outcome and think I'll like it even more the next time I get it toned.
Got my nails done here three times now and every time I go I have a wonderful experience and my nails look great! Love the ladies who do my nails and always have me looking my best. If you’re unsure about anything they have excellent recommendations. Brought my friend to get her nails done too and we both loved how our nails turned out.
After being in Ottawa for over 10 years, I've only now just found my forever hair dresser!! Diana is a senior hair stylist at this location and she's absolutely amazing at her job, works quickly and efficiently and always takes everything you want into consideration! You need to book in advance with her cause her schedule is always busy!! I have no doubt that the other hair dressers are as good as she is! I just happened to walk in one day with a crisis and she saved me just as she was about to end her day. Definitely recommend Hair Republic of you're looking for some experienced hair stylists! Oh yeah, I spotted a few hot guys too if you're into one working on your hair 👀 anyways, worth every penny!
Got my hair cut with Hitomi. The overall experience was lovely from walking in to sign in with the receptionist, to the hair washing, the cut and checking out.

They do ask you to remove shoes to put on slippers that are marked clean. They have an area to hang your coat and sit and wait if needed. The receptionist was super friendly.

Hitomi sat me down and checked with me exactly what I wanted my hair cut to be, pulling out reference photos. I really felt heard in what I wanted my hair cut Tobe and she made it really painless.

The hair wash was great and the cut was great. She took amazing care to make sure it was perfect.

For check out, they have pouches for each stylist to put tips and it is cash-only.
