Frequently Asked Questions

Is there parking?

Yes! There is street parking located across the street. $3.25 will buy you 2 hours of time, and we can help feed the meter while you’re getting your hair done. There is also a parking lot located beside the salon. For $13.00 you can stay there all day.

Do you take Walk-ins?

Yes, walk-ins are welcome. However, we always recommend booking in advance since our books are usually fully booked in advance.

Why aren't you able to quote final pricing over the phone?

One service does not fit all; the integrity of your hair is very important to us! We want to make sure that before we tell you how much a service will cost (and how long it will take to complete) we have seen the condition of your hair, and made sure that the services you want are safe for you.

Consultations are completely complementary and can be done any time during our hours of operation.

What if I'm not able to come for a consultation before my appointment?

If you can not come in for a consultation, we will do our best to consult over the phone or via email. In the event we have a last minute cancellation at the end of the day, we can book both the consult and colour service at the same time. However, this occurrence is rare because we want to ensure that before booking a colour service, we have had a chance to discuss all options and enough time is provided for the stylist to make your hair dreams come true!

Why are your prices labeled as “Starting At”?

There are a few factors that dictate the overall price of your service. For haircuts, the price is subject to change if the stylist goes over the usual hour time block they are needed for a cut. Whereas for colour, highlights, colour correction, and other technical services, the price depends on the amount of product needed to achieve the desired look, and the amount of time the stylist needs.

What products does your salon use?

Our salon uses all Davines products. From bleach, toner, shampoo, conditioner, to the hairspray at the end of your visit. “Davines does not aim to be the largest company in the world, but to be the most beautiful and the most ethical thanks to all.” Davide Bollati, President of the Davines Group.

Do you offer kids cuts?

Salon Five Forty-Eight caters to an older demographic, however, if you inquire with your stylist about cutting a child’s hair, we will leave it up to their discretion.

Do you only accept cash tips?

If you enjoyed your experience with us then tips are greatly appreciated! We accept cash tips or if you prefer our debit machine provides a tip option- with the exemption of American Express.

Does your salon accept new clients?

Yes! New clients are more than welcome. In some cases, the stylist you’re interested in booking with may close their books if they’re over booked and do not have time to take on new clients. However, we have five amazing stylists you could book in with anytime.

Do I have to pre book my appointment?

It is not required that you pre book every appointment, but we do highly recommend it because our books fill up a couple months in advance.

“I can’t say enough about this salon, the service, the cleanliness, and the talent surpasses what I’ve experienced at other salons. I just had my third appointment yesterday and will continue to go back regularly!”

Client Reviews

“I had such a great first-time experience at Salon 548! I popped in to see Sylvie for a cut/style and colour consult. The vibe of the space is SO cute and Sylvie was really attentive to my hair goals. It’s been a while since I’ve felt this confident about my hair (and my stylist lol!)– she delivered 1000%. I’m so happy to have found a new Salon, and I will def be recommending to friends as well!”

Client Reviews

“I’ve been coming to this salon for a little over a year now and am always impressed when I leave! Brooke is patient with me when I come in and am unsure of what I want to do with my hair. She takes the time to talk through what I’m looking for and I’m really appreciative of that. Her suggestions for cut and colour are always exactly what I didn’t know I wanted. The girls at the salon often go to seminars (usually out of town) which is so beneficial in staying up to date on the current trends. Always love coming to this cute little salon! Would definitely recommend!”
