"I have been a customer of The Fringe since they opened. Stellar management and stylists. They are the best in Calgary. I lived in Toronto and this group can rival and trump their trendy shops. It's a positive, laugh-filled experience for all age groups. My girls and their friends love it, too!"
"Fringe Hair Company is absolutely the best!! I always look forward to my appointments. It has such a pleasant atmosphere. The people there are so warm and friendly. My stylist Brennan is not only an exceptionally talented stylist but seems more like a close friend who is cutting my hair. I have never left not feeling better than when I came in. She rocks!!!"
"Fantastic salon with great people. I have seen 4 different stylists and have been happy every time. They deliver upscale results without that snobby feel. Very relaxing, professional stylists and great results for a reasonable price! Love the Fringe!"
"I've been going to this salon for about three years now. I got a free cut when I donated my hair to cancer and ever since that I kept coming back. They have great customer service and trust me, what you pay for is what you get. I go to Jen Ayotte for my cuts and she always gets a man's hair right. Remember communication is key, so let them know what you want. Oh, and one last thing; their head massages are a cure to hangovers!"
"I have been to other salons in the city, ones that have high-end decor and fashion-inspired large format prints all over the walls who claim to have amazing teams in place and really 'value' their clients, but these girls really are the real deal. You can not fake amazing customer service, no matter how much you say it. I always feel extremely taken care of, welcome and very relaxed at The Fringe Hair. Their prices are
fair for what you get, which is amazing talent, service and quality cuts and hair. If you are looking for a new salon, you should definitely be trying out this salon. From the products they are using, the talent and ongoing teaching to the front-end friendly staff, there are just so many reasons why I love this place. :D"
