I’ve been seeing Sally for several years now since I walked in one day and asked her to chop all my hair off. She gave me a gorgeous haircut then (~18″ to less than 2″, which she was very careful to talk me through first) and has maintained and given me top service through short hair, grow-out phases, long hair, blonde, red, and peach! She has incredible experience and is exceptionally skilled at her craft, and also happens to be very down to earth and lovely to visit with. She spends time to give you a very relaxing scalp massage and is extremely efficient and skilled at giving you the cut you want. My last visit involved a relaxing massage and shampoo and a cut that felt like it was over in minutes (and feeling longer and healthier than when I came in). My most recent colour demand from her was a summery peach colour melt and she worked hard to get it just right, even inviting me in for a free colour tweak to get it perfect. As always, it has faded out beautifully, really giving me my money’s worth. She goes above and beyond to check in and make sure you are happy with your treatments. As an employee and resident of the Commercial Drive area for many years, I appreciate how Sally really works hard to bring the best she can to the Drive while still striving for an inclusive atmosphere. Sally has created a community-oriented shop that employees some very wonderful people and I’m always happy to visit

I came to see Jillian to get my balayage highlights done and was thoroughly impressed. I showed her a picture of what I wanted and the result surpassed my expectations. I definitely won’t be trusting anyone else with my hair other than Jillian.

I’ve been going to Taproot for over a year now. I can’t be more satisfied every time I go there. Thanks to lovely Jane I’ve gotten my best cuts in my life this past year. Every one is super friendly and helpful and I don’t thing I ever wanna go anywhere else to get my hair done.

I absolutely love Taproot! The stylists and all of the staff are amazing. Thank you for contributing in such a positive way to Commercial drive. It is great to see a boutique salon thriving, and it is no doubt a direct result of the quality of work and the hip styling of the salon. Keep up the epicness!

After my hairstylist at another salon went on maternity leave, I sampled several new salons before landing at Taproot. The salon has a great vibe, quality products, and comfortable, engaging and talented stylists. My whole family, including my 3-year old son, all get haircuts here and we couldn’t be happier!

Sally is my go-to gal and someone I can trust when I tell her to “go nuts”. She’s able to read people like few I know. I also like that I’m greeted with giant smiles and a cup of tea. I would recommend the team at Taproot to anyone, anytime.

Love you guys!

I’ve been going to Taproot for a few years now. I’ve been disappointed by other hair dressers in the past who don’t seem to listen to what I want and just do their own thing. Not so with these gals. They’re super easy going and always HEARS the vision I have. I love my cuts, colors, and styles from her every time. Not to mention the delicious tea provided during my appointment. All of the staff are friendly, helpful and always smiling. Great little boutique salon in the heart of Commercial Drive in East Van.

I have been coming to Taproot for 10 years now and I enjoy myself every time I come for my service. The staff are friendly, they serve me hot tea, know my whole family and fabulous conversations every service. All of the staff talks with me at length, and every time I visit they expertly get rid of all of my grey. I love the haircuts and encouragement at times to try something new. I have never been disappointed. Taproot is my “local”, there is no salon like it on Commercial Drive.
