    I've never been more relaxed in a salon. The decor is beautiful and Farzana and Alex are amazing. I'm moving in.

    I didn't even know they was a spa in here. Sheila has been cutting and styling my hair for the past year and always recommends the newest styles and products. Then recently I learned there is a spa in here. Threading waxing and facials... Tried them, loved them. Service is superb and This family run place makes you feel like you are at home.. You gotta see it to believe it... be prepared to be pampered in the spa... Finest products and they take care of every little detail.... Including the oil use after waxing.... The most comfortable after effects ever. My facial was perfect and I was so impressed that they carry the Thalgo line which I only used when I was in Italy. You want fab all around? Try this place..I like to call it a hidden treasure in the city.

    What a wonderful place! Farzana is relaxed, kind, and so knowledgable -- I found my permanent salon! A local, family run joint, in a quaint neighbourhood, I am incredibly happy with the experience and the results!

    I've been going here for 15 years and have always left with a wonderful cut and colour!

    A treasure in the city. I recommend it highly. Sheila is a true artist.

    Amazing service and a phenomenal hair cut - so understanding of our requests and so stylish. My kids and I just love it there.

    Can't say enough about this sweet salon. Family run- warm and friendly and Farzana so skilled. Finally after many years of trying (elsewhere), she gave me exactly what I wanted!! Heartily recommend. And so convenient. (and oh yes, Mohib made me fabulous Chocolate chilli chai tea)

    I have very thick hair and am very lazy with maintaining it! Farzana has managed to make my unruly hair gorgeous and gives me cuts that look great even without maintenance. The atmosphere is always so friendly and fun!

    I've only ever had cut and colour here, so I can't speak about any other services, but I enjoy coming here. If I want something funky, edgy and flattering, the stylists at this salon know how to deliver.

    Been going to Sheila's for almost 10 years. Great atmosphere , great cuts and very friendly people.

    Accommodating, skilled and friendly. Great shop.

    My stylist moved to Calgary and I wanted to find another stylist in my neighborhood, (Broadview/Danforth). I was aware of Sheila's Shear Art for many years but always thought it was a salon geared towards women.
    I called, Sheila invited me over, gave me a great cut, no muss no fuss. My hair is super fine and needs a cut that will give it some body .. a piece of cake for her to do. Super happy with her work.
    She gave me a tour of her 30 year old business. I had no idea how many rooms she had for esthetics, massage therapy, multi service salon.
    I met her daughter Farzana who is also has her own fan club of clients.
    Two very nice gals providing excellent service in the area.

    Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic!
    To be honest, I don't know where all the negative reviews are coming from! Farzana (the daughter of the salon owner) was amazing - super friendly, and a nice woman to speak to -- she makes you feel super at home! And she not only recommended some amazing Pureology product so I can preserve my new lighter locks, but also taught me a few tips and tricks to style my hair so my highlights stand out!! Such a sweetheart!

  • *****

    I have been a regular client of Shiela's for 20 years which says something in itself. Friendly, knowledgeable and constantly upgrading their office and knowledge by attending many seminars for the latest trends in hair design, etc. 5 stars all the way, Dr. John A. Hardy

    Sweeties!
    A good conversation and good service truly makes a difference and this place is like the epitome of it! Farzana is hilarious and so kind, as is her mother! I walked in on the weekend on a whirlwind to get my hair done for Saturday evening and just simply had a blast! Not only are they good with her, but they're just good conversationalists and all I can say are ... sweeties!!! Definite go to if you're in the central Toronto area and looking for a friendly new salon.

    superbbb! I was a...
    superbbb! I was a last-minute walk-in because I had to get my hair styled for a holiday party I last minute-ly decided to attend. First, the salon is spotless and their tools look so high-tech and high-quality - they know their stuff for sure! Secondly, Farzana - the daughter here - was so friendly, chatty, and rest-assured that my hair would be good to go within the hour... and it was! I will definitely keep this place in mind next time I'm in a rush!

    I have been going to Shelia's for 17 years and never had a bad cut/colour. They have won my loyalty with their talent.

    They are a family business, a mother/daughter duo with incredible experience.

    Every year they train in NY, New York to learn new techniques and maintain their craft. They're extremely experienced in cutting, styling, colour and have great product knowledge.

    Overall: amazing talent, affordable prices, excellent service, close to public transit and street parking - what more could you want!

    People always comment on how great my hair looks, I always tell them to go to Shelia's.

    I went to Sheila's for several years when I lived in the neighborhood. They are an extremely nice mother/daughter team with a knack for excellent customer service.

    They always gave me great cuts and blowouts. I also went to them to have my hair styled for formal events (my graduation, weddings, formal parties, etc.) and they always did an incredible job.

    I recommend getting your hair done by Sheila's Shear Art!

    I have had some terrible hair service in my time and I have to say, this was so refreshing. The moment I walked in, I was at ease. The decor is relaxing and beautiful and the lighting was perfect. I've actually never seen such a beautiful salon, right down to the chandeliers. I received a wonderful shampoo from Alex, complete with a little scalp massage and then received the best haircut of my life from Farzana. She did everything right and she listened to what I had to say. The entire experience was breath-taking. Worth every cent.

  • *****

    SWEETIES! I, for ...
    SWEETIES! I, for one, value good service and friendliness when I go out for any sort of public service - aka restaurants, bars, salons... because service is 50% of the experience! And these ladies here have it. Not only are they good with their scissors but they are the friendliest hairdressers I've met! Hilarious and definitely put me in a good mood for the rest of my Saturday this past weekend!

  • *****

    Farzanah and Sheila have been styling and colouring my hair for over ten years. Prior to that, I didn't like my hair, but I have learned to love it. They have worked with me to find styles that are appropriate to my age and stage. They recommend great products. I love the warm and cozy feel to the salon, and I always leave feeling cared for and pampered. Thanks!!

    Sheila was AMAZIN...
    Sheila was AMAZING! Just moved into this neighborhood from the 'burbs and I haven't been able to go to my go-to man 45 mins away with life happening and all. Getting settled in, I always walk by Sheila's -- a really cute, sweet place -- and a lot of my neighbors seem to be going here... turns out it's been open for 30 years! So it's a neighborhood gem. Sheila got what I wanted - even gave me a recommendation not to layer too much - and now... I'm obsessed! xx Super family-feeling too!

    Glad I went with my gut feeling!
    Sheila was AMAZING! I just moved into this neighborhood a couple months ago from the suburbs and I haven't been able to go to my go-to man 45 mins away with life happening and all and the big move. Getting settled in, I always walk by Sheila's -- a really cute, sweet place -- and a lot of my neighbors seem to be going here... turns out it's been open for 30 years! So it's a neighborhood gem.
    I was a little apprehensive (I seriously don't let anyone just touch my hair)... plus I've seen these reviews :/ so I asked for Sheila herself but she was absolutely fantastic. Totally understood what I wanted - even gave me a recommendation not to layer too much because of my particular head shape/hair thickness and I ended up with a fresh cut that is super flattering. Now the only issue is I have two hairdressers I LOVE! Which do I go to? Aha

    I've been going to Sheila's now for probably close to 20 years. I first went to her shop while still in university and new to Toronto and looking for a new haircut place that I could feel confident and comfortable in knowing that the staff are knowledgeable, professional, but without ridiculous prices and attitude. Obviously as I've been a loyal customer for 20 years, suffice it to say that I am happy, and would recommend anyone looking for a new place to have their hair done to give Sheila's a try. I'm confident that you too will keep coming back. The other thing with Sheila and Farzana (her daughter) is that you really feel like you matter and it's not just about money. And while I understand they're there to also make money, it's nice to know that I'm more than just a customer.

    Came in, awesome staff, they discussed potentially donating hair for charity which was really cool. Great conversation, enthusiastic, and an excellent cut.

  • *****

    I've been going here for a little over a year now and I've never been disappointed. They give great advice for styles, do a great job with any requests and listen to what you say while they're cutting. I can honestly say that my hair is way better since I've been going to them. Prices are really good too but I'd say the best part is how nice Sheila and Farazana (sorry if the spelling is off) are.

    I went to Sheila's as a walk in client, and on a whim entrusted her to advise me a on a new hairstyle.  Using pictures she took herself at a hair show in New York City, she helped me update my look.  I have received many compliments and now I'm a regular client.  I have always felt like the staff are professional and attentive.  I received an invitation to the salon's Christmas party, and even got a gift at my last visit before the holidays.  For men, I think the price is reasonable for the level of service and the quality of the haircut.

    Good service, not high end but definitely worth a look

    Such a great place! You can tell the people who work there really care about what they do. From start to finish it was a great experience, and I left with exactly what I wanted & then some.
