what people are saying

Sara is the absolute best!!! I’ve been going to her for so long and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my hair!! She’s so sweet and always makes sure you look fab when you leave.

Amanda Shaw from Peterborough (5 Star)

This is by far my favourite place I have ever gone to get my hair done. Christine and Sheri do my hair for me and I always leave with a smile on my face. The atmosphere is amazing, the haircuts are phenomenal, and this place has the friendliest group of people I have ever met. :)

Vic Fuller (5 star)

Mackenzie was amazing and personable, along with all the staff at The Cutting Edge. The consultation was not rushed. Mackenzie did a very thorough job with my highlights and low lights. Thank you again.

Sylvia C (5 Star)

Christine is a fantastic hairdresser who listens to me and what I want done. I recommend her for cuts as well as colour as she is great at both.



Diane Schallenberg from Milton (5 star)

Great little salon in downtown Milton. I wear hijab and they made accommodations to cut my hair privately upstairs. I really appreciated it. There are not many hijab friendly salons out there. Jordan cut my hair wonderfully. Definitely coming back!

Komal Nasim from Milton (5 star)

This place is great. All the staff couldn't be friendlier. Every time I go I always feel like I'm in excellent hands. Mackenzie (as my hairdresser) is very professional and I always like what she does with my hair, delivering consistent results each time. What particularly impresses me is that she definitely listens and remembers details about me and our conversations even though there could be upwards of a month and a half between my visits! I also really like that you can arrange for an appointment online. It's really convenient and easy. If you're looking for a decent hairdresser (for women OR men) the this place is DEFINITELY worth a try.

James Desjardins from Milton (5 star)

I've lived in Milton for 7 years and have tried many salons and The Cutting Edge is simply the best! Salon Manager Amanda is warm, inviting and very efficient. Stylist Sheri won me over with the very first hair cut she gave me. She truly understands hair and takes the time to analyze your hair and gives you wonderful advice. I have truly loved each hair cut! Entire staff always so friendly. They make it fun to be at the salon! Highly recommended!

Sue Brown (5 star)

A big thank you to the cutting edge for making our wedding day so special and memorable. They opened early for us, and they allowed us food to bring to snack on while we were getting our hair done. They also allowed my makeup artist to come and set up her makeup. I had 8 ladies in my bridal party and they were amazing! I had the best experience, the ladies were all so incredibly helpful and friendly the entire time. I had Sherri do my hair and she exceeded my expectations, she is easy going and a perfectionist. She made my hair stunning! Thank you again for all your hard work and dedication. Ashley

Ashley McCarthy (5 star)

With recommendations from quite a few friends, I found myself at The cutting Edge. From the moment I walked into The Cutting Edge, Amanda at the front desk greeted me with a warm smile. The staff made both my daughter and I feel very welcomed. I had my color done by Jenn, and Jordan cut both my hair and my 11 year old daughter's hair. The ladies listened to what we wanted and our new hairstyles turned out beautifully. I have received so many compliments and it's all thanks to the ladies at The Cutting Edge.
