I met Cherine when I purchased a groupon for a facial. I love facials and tried so many in many different salons . What I found different about Cherine was here massage technique . I was looking for someone who really cares about doing facials as an ultimate experience. I studied medical esthetics and am very knowledgeable about skin care. The massage is very important. It activates the product and it works lifting muscles in the face. Not only was Cherine’s massage superb ,the products are just amazing. She uses IS clinical. She is well educated in the products she uses and helped inform me about exactly how the products work . Every facial is an educational experience as well. She knows when and when not to talk too! I trust her with taking care of my skin and providing me with the best facial possible. My skin is amazing after the facial. I am a professional model and my skin must be perfect especially before a shoot. I visit a day or two before the shoot and my skin is flawless! My objective is anti aging . I really believe I am in good hands….
Cherine is right on point!
I am a 61 year old Jamaican Canadian who was plagued with awful skin. Constant breakouts and most of all I suffered from very obvious hyperpigmentation on the side of my face beside my eyes. It was so obvious that one Saturday morning my husband looked at me and asked what happened to my face? He said it looked like someone punched me in the face!!
I tried several creams to fight the discoloration and got no results, so my only solution was to wear foundation every day to try to conceal it. It didn’t hide it completely but it wasn’t as obvious. Then I met Cherine!
My first visit with Cherine was for eyebrow threading, she did an amazing job of my eyebrows! During that session, I asked for advice on my skin issues, she was very knowledgeable and first suggested a Fire and Ice facial to properly cleanse my skin and then she introduced me to the Innovative Skincare product line.
I purchased the products from her and was given expert, precise instructions on how to use them daily. For me the most important product is the White Bright Complex (skin brightening treatment). It worked like magic counteracting the excessive pigmentation that I was experiencing on my mature skin. I noticed the difference in my skin after just 10 days of use and it just keeps improving! I’ve been using the products for 10 months and my skin is so amazing clean, clear and even toned that I no longer wear foundation…hallelujah!!
I recently saw Cherine for my usual eyebrow threading and she didn’t realize that I wasn’t wearing foundation until she dropped the white thread that she was using on the white pillowcase and noticed that it was still white because I wasn’t wearing foundation! She asked me if I was wearing foundation and I said no, the last time I used foundation was December 2017. My complexion is so even toned that not even my esthetician could tell that I was makeup free!
Thanks a million Cherine for your professional help and advice and also for the warm and caring way that you give it. You are truly AMAZING. I have healthy, clear skin again. The products are a great value because they last a long time, just a small amount is needed. I just want to say a big THANK YOU for giving a radiant complexion…God bless you!!
Loved it as soon as I walked in, the couple that own it are so friendly and attentive. The place is clean and the decor is chic and welcoming. Booking my appointment was super easy, everything was done online with no problem whatsover. I got a wash and cut with Moodie and it was great, he did just what I wanted and more. Definitely going back!
I have been a regular at MC salon for over 8 years (felt it was time I wrote a review). All the staff are always very welcoming and attentive. Moodie has been styling my hair since that time and I can truly say I have never been disappointed with the results. Thanks Moodie
This was the best salon experience I have EVER had. I was a little nervous about getting my hair done, but reviews said that the MC Laser Clinic & Hair Salon was one of the best, so I decided to book an appointment. I showed Moodie a picture of what I wanted, and just like that, I had EXACTLY what I showed him! This team is very professional, very knowledgable, very friendly and very dedicated to make sure I would be happy with the outcome. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get something done. I am defiantly going back because the salon experience was absolutely fantastic!
I have been coming to MC Laser Clinic & Salon for two years now and I absolutely love it!! I can’t say enough nice things. Cherine has been doing my eyebrows and she is incredible!! When I first came in my eyebrows were short (from my previous eyebrow stylist plucking them too much) and thick. They did not suit my face at all. I thought I was going to have to tattoo on the ends in order to fix them, but with Cherine’s help and her art (no exaggeration) of eyebrow crafting, my eyebrows have grown to their full length and have been fully shaped to my face!! My family and friends couldn’t believe it! Moodie has been doing my hair and he’s AMAZING!! For haircuts, I have curly hair, and Moodie knows exactly how to cut the hair in order to ensure that it sits well. For hair colour, his work is unparallelled! When I first came into the salon my hair was multiple colours, dull, and my roots were very dark. Moodie was able to absolutely transform my hair into platinum blonde in only one sitting, with no split ends(!!) Recently, he dyed my hair a gorgeous warm medium blonde, and I have already gotten multiple compliments on it from strangers. The best thing about Moodie is that he really takes the client’s preferences into consideration, and he uses as many products as necessary in order to ensure that you get the look that you want, with the least amount of damage possible. I’ve never seen this quality in other hair stylists before! He’s also very enthusiastic about what he does. (You can really see how excited he is about the final product!). Overall, everyone at this salon is friendly and the atmosphere is great! I highly recommend!!
I had a consultation appointment with Cherine regarding laser hair removal. She made me feel extremely comfortable, and explained the process in great detail. She was very careful when doing my patch test, and that reassured me that I was in good hands. Her prices are also pretty reasonable. I have booked my first session with her next week, and look forward to it.
Extremely professional and friendly, don’t think I’ve ever liked my haircut as much. I got my eyebrows threaded and they look amazing. Also, really cool rewards programs and offers a discount to students. Will definitely be going back!
Really friendly and super knowledgeable about all the products that they use. They go out of their way to provide you with the best experience and are really accommodating!
Love, love, love, my haircut and colour. Moody was great and would definitely recommend.
Cherine is excellent, very nice person and estheticien.
Moody, very professional and very friendly.
I am greatly satisfied.
Excellent experience! Cherine is very professional, kind, funny, and a pleasure to visit! Not to mention she has the BEST laser hair removal machine in Ottawa. It really did work! I have tried three different laser hair removal places in Ottawa over the years, and one in Montreal..Cherine’s is the only one that permanently stopped the hair from growing back!
I had a facial with the most talented Cherine earlier this afternoon. Absolutely loved it… My face feels so smooth and looks so bright, I can already see a difference. I will forsure be going back for another one! Matis products are the best 🙂 So relaxing and made me feel so welcome. Such an amazing salon with even greater service! I highly recommend it (especially getting your eyebrows done)
I’ve been doing laser with Cherine for the last few months and all I can say is wow! I am so comfortable with her and she always make sure to explain everything and answer all my questions, she is truly wonderful. Just after the first session my results were great. Moodie and Cherine are so welcoming and friendly and I really enjoy hanging out with them. Such professionals! I will definetly be coming back here and recommending them to all my friends, for sure the best salon I’ve been to 🙂
Nice, friendly and talented familly.
Moodie, Cherine and Sooe ( owner, his wife, his sister) give you one of the best services in Ottawa.
I know them for almost 7 years now and I just book with them and come to their salon for different services (color, cut, style, laser, eyebrows and much more) without even thinking about other places.
They ask for a fair service fee and I enjoy hanging out with them and drinking their lebanese coffee ????.
I highly recommend them.
All of the style and none of the pretense! Hairdressers Sue and Moodie are extremely skilled stylists…I see both as hairdressers and I just love sitting in their chairs! I am so happy with how Sue cuts and styles my curly hair – and if I have an event to go too, her style for an evening out will knock your socks off!!! My curls remain beautiful, and the thing I love most is that my hairdo lasts ALL day and night!!! Moodie styles my hair as well, and he is amazing at what he does and is a master colourist! When I walk into their salon, I feel like I am walking inside my own home. Everyone is beyond lovely, friendly, approachable and professional. They all really know their craft. Sue does my colour and she offers great advice and is a good listener, and I’m very happy with the outcome. Everyone at this salon is friendly and the mood is relaxing and calming, a glorious experience all around. The salon location is an excellent area, they provide a great experience from start to finish, stylists who keep their skills current, attentive, and are great communicators. Always on-time, you never have to wait. I love that they book accordingly! The salon has the absolute BEST laser machine in the city!! Results are noticed instantly and Cherine is lovely and amazing at what she does. I have tried many laser companies in the past and nothing works better than the machine at this salon! The rest of the spa packages that are offered are sure to please and never disappoint! Overall, I am so pleased with the results and I adore the staff. I am at the salon every week because my hair is always on point once their finished styling it, I enjoy the atmosphere and it just makes you want to keep going back!
After hearing from a few friends that Moodie is one of the best in Ottawa, I decided to give them a try on Friday, I did highlights, cut and style. And WOW! I don’t think I’ve ever left a salon 100% satisfied but my visit with Moodie was an amazing experience from beginning to end. I was offered a cup of their traditional coffee to start, owners were very friendly and professional, (and funny), prices were very reasonable and most of all I left the salon beyond happy with my hair. So glad I found a salon I can stick with!!
I have been coming to this hair salon for over 15 years and followed them to the new location. I find Moodie consistently top quality. He cares for my hair and I feel I always look my best. My latest highlights in my hair are just wonderful. I really y like the products they have for my hair and my skin. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my hair. Cherine has also given me great advice regarding my skin care. She has a bubbly positive personality and is very knowledge about different types of skin.
I have been a client of MC Laser clinic and hair salon for past two years. I am always impressed by their professionalism, expertise and most importantly customer services. I just completed a 5 session laser package treatment with Cherine and have seen great results. Cherine is so patience and kind, she makes each laser session fun and relaxing. I have also had multiple facials and love the Matis line. It has done wonders to my skin. Moodie, also cuts and colours my hair. He especially knows how to blow dry thick curly hair, that lasts for days! I always leave his chair with great results. It is a great salon that offers a variety of services, hair, esthectics and laser treatments- it is hidden gem on Baseline/Prince of Wales road. Check it out, you will not be disappointed!!
OMGOSH! I’m just saw myself in the mirror and I can’t stop smiling 🙂 I am a 58 year old woman who hasn’t smiled at her image for quite awhile now. But thanks to Moodie, who actually knows what he’s doing especially as a colourist, well also great stylist (I finally after years and hundreds of dollars finally found the “one” :)) And he actually even gave me the perfect bang! I swear, I am never letting anyone else put a hand on my hair ever again. But I also had my first ever Facial Tightening Session. I honestly feel happy with my old, sagging face again. No, I should say, I no longer have my old, sagging face anymore! Even after my first treatment. While it can be uncomfortable at times, it is tolerable and was done at my pace. I’m not kidding ladies, men, my neck and jowls already look pretty darn great! Thanks Cherine (Moodie’s wife. Hence, M C) And they themselves, already feel like family! (Moodie even made me lunch! But, please don’t ask to be fed ????)
Wonderful environment. Felt very comfortable while getting consultation and felt I was fully provided with truthful information about what to expect. I had Laser hair removal as well as face tightening and have been overwhelmed with the results. I’ve never written a review online before but felt so strongly with the experience that I had to write this
Hair and aesthetics are top notch A+++. Very knowledgable, hardworking and dedicated people. Experts in fields and stay up to date with all current styles and technology. Best laser hair removal in the city!
This is the best salon ever!
I have been to many salons before and this is the best one. Amazing service, reasonable prices, very clean!
I do laser hair removal with Cherine and I highly recommend her. She is patient, makes sure you are comfortable, and explains everything to you before the procedure. She is extremely knowledgeable. I am on my 5th session with her and the results are amazing. With laser hair removal with Cherine, you see results immediately!
Cherine checks up on you between your sessions to see how the process is, so her commitment is not just during the sessions but the whole time throughout your laser hair removal process.
I do all other things with her, and she is very professional with all her services from facials, threading and waxing, etc. but if you’re thinking laser hair removal, go to Cherine!
I go to Cherine for facial and my eyebrows. She is amazing!! Suggested her to few of my frinends and they are very satisfied as well.
Recently, she got a Laser machine (Gentel Max – an excellent machine) I am going to her for laser of my legs, underarm and face – I am on my 3rd treatment so far I have had amazing results. I recommend her to everyone I know! She is profesional, very good at what she does. She will call you home to check on you after your treatment and you can call her anytime if you have any questions.
I am so glad I discovered this place!!
If someone needs a facial, waxing, eyebrow threading, and laser hair removal you really should consider visiting Cherine, with no doubt. I did hair laser removal a year ago. I am so pleased and it was worth it 100% every penny I spend. I was very hairy, and telling the truth I have never considered I would have the result I got after I finished the 6th treatment. I am very blessed that I had a chance to meet her, she is amazing and super friendly. She was always patient, precise and took her time when she did laser, eyebrow and facial on me. Regrading cleanliness, that place is very pristine.
When I moved here from Halifax in 2009, I searched 6 years to get a hair dresser that would listen to how I wanted my hair done. In 2015, I went to Moodie and told him how I would like my hair done. From that time on, he always does my hair consistently and I never have to tell him what I want. He advises me each time what he should do and I always leave loving how he finishes my hair. I never want to go home and redo my hair. In fact, I dont want to touch it and it stays looking good for a few days. He is the expert and I love this type of customer service.
