Featured Artist: Matt Dunne at Is. Salon

Everybody knows how hard it is to find a good stylist. They either over-excercise their artistic liscence, keep giving you the same cut again and again despite your requests for a change, or they're perfect except they change salons every 3 months. Or they retire, shut their salon and fail to inform you so you're left wondering why their phone number has been disconnected (true story - this happened to me)!

Enter Matt Dunne, stylist at Is. Salon in Vancouver, B.C. Located in trendy Yaletown, this salon has a warm yet posh atmosphere. Matt has been a stylist for seven years and uses his technical training and artistic flare to create styles that reflect his clients' energy and personality.

Matt updated my heavy, overgrown locks by cutting soft side bangs, face framing layers, as well as shaping and lightening my crown.  All this without sacrificing length! To top it off, he gave me lovely pre-Raphaelite curls which lasted a full 3 days despite the rain. Anyone with stick straight Asian hair can appreciate how difficult this task is!

It gets better: not only is Matt a great stylist, but he also is a great friend. My sister, who also sees Matt agrees and her hair has never looked better in her whole life (and trust me she was in a major 2 decade long hair rut before she started seeing him).

Haircuts start at $60.00 CA. Is. Salon is located at:
