Tsubaki Hair Express

515 Dunsmuir St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1Y4

Tsubaki is a no-frills Japanese hair salon that feels like the real thing. They’re fast, as the name implies, but the stylists never sacrifice the experience to move people through their chairs.

To qualify for the less-expensive trim rate, you must be getting less than an inch of hair cut off.
