I didn’t plan to get my hair cut today. I was trying to find a non-snowy place to rest my bags while I called an Uber to the train station and the salon owner offered me a sheltered place to sit. After talking for a few minutes and learning that Gamal Ali has a Master’s in Design and seeing that his salon is filled with his original paintings and art he imports from around the world, I realized here, an artist would cut my hair. I’d just had it done a month earlier in a fancy salon in Toronto where the guy barely touched half my head and charged $80+. Here I got a shorter cut than I thought I’d wanted but Gamal was dead right: he took off all the gross dead ends and shaped it so my fine limp hair now has tons of body! For $35+tip. Wow. His salon and instruments need a thorough scrub and regular cleaning (there’s sedimentary layers of hair by the front door mat) but if you can look past that as you don the complimentary slippers – and be clear about what you want and are comfortable with – you won’t be unhappy you took the risk here.

Have been getting my hair cut at Connoisseur for about 3 years now – great place! The owner, Gamal, is a true connoisseur not just as a barber, but also the arts in general… photography, architecture, painting, drawing, etc. Great conversation and excellent haircuts!

This place is old school and I mean that in the best of ways. I’m a man who’s been looking for a barber that knows how to cut hair for quite some time. When you walk through the door here, don’t expect to be coddled or fooled. You walk in, you’re greeted with sincerity, you are sit down, and the architect goes to work. The quality of service and of the haircut remains consistent, so you can always be sure to walk out feeling satisfied.

The best haircut by the best barber in town. Gamal is not only a gentleman, but intelligent, a quick study, and a great conversationalist! Gamal will always remember your name, and your haircut! The prices are great! Come for the haircut, stay for the art and make a new friend in Gamal!

I’ve had the pleasure of getting my hair cut at the Connoisseur and can say I have naturally become a repeat customer. Not only was I given excellent customer service, I can always count that my hair cuts will be consistent with the last. The time spent and the dedication is second to none. Thanks again. – Adrian Y – 15/12/2014
