Mòdú is a Korean hair salon located at 636 Abbot Street. Its name is derived from the Korean word MODU, which means all, everyone, and everything.

Their name encapsulates the salon’s ability to provide a wide range of hair services, as evidenced by their diverse team of experienced hairdressers which we found impressive.

Furthermore, Hiro, the founder of Mòdú, has over 20 years of experience, which we believe adds to the company’s dependability.

We were also impressed by their ability to accommodate various cuts, colors, perms, and treatments. Having so many options, in our opinion, attracts more customers.

That is why we’re a little disappointed that their services do not include washing and styling. Customers must pay an additional fee for this service.

Nevertheless, we liked the fact that they have a comprehensive portfolio of their previous work. This, in our opinion, allows potential clients to see their work and decide whether or not they’re a good fit for them.

Moreover, the majority of the clients we’ve spoken with praise their efficient services and clean facilities, which made the entire experience more comfortable for them.

All in all, we highly recommend Mòdú Hair Salon for your haircut and hair styling needs as they’re one of the best Korean hair salons in Vancouver.

Pros

  • Years of experience
  • Comprehensive work portfolio
  • 20% off for children 10 years and under
  • Wide range of hair services
  • Clean and sleek facilities

Cons

  • Relatively higher prices
  • Additional charge for wash and style

Customer Reviews

Rachel’s Hair Salon is a Korean hair salon in Vancouver that specializes in personalized haircuts. This business is located at 3159 Cambie Street, just beside Deerwater Dental.

We thought it was particularly impressive that they provide a full range of hair services, including numerous Korean styles, as we believe this allows them to cater to a wide range of client preferences.

However, what drew our attention was the fact that they provide digital perms. 

This treatment results in full curls that last 6 months to a year. This service, in our opinion, is best for individuals with thin, straight hair who want to add volume and style to it.

Aside from that, this establishment offers a smoothing treatment in which products are used to provide a long-lasting anti-frizz effect to add smoothness to your hair without damaging it.

Some of the other services they offer include cold and root volume perm, color retouch, glossing, full color, and even men’s design perm. 

That’s why we are disappointed that they don’t have a work portfolio, as we believe this would have been an excellent opportunity to showcase their work to potential clients.

Nonetheless, the majority of the customers we interviewed emphasized how professional they are because they’re attentive to their customers to give them the haircut and style that they desire.

Pros

  • Specializes in personalized haircuts
  • Digital perm and smoothing treatment available
  • Full range of hair services

Cons

  • No work portfolio
  • Website accessibility could be improved

Sejong Hair Salon is a well-known Korean hair salon in both South Korea and Vancouver. We immediately found it impressive that they’ve been honing their hairdressing techniques and offering services since 1979.

We also appreciate that they’re open seven days a week as we think this allows them to accommodate more clients. It’s also worth mentioning that this establishment has over 26 locations, three of which are in Vancouver.

Sejong Hair Salon also has a convenient online booking system where customers can set an appointment with them. 

Now, we believe this hair salon is ideal for customers who are looking to change their hairstyle, as Sejong Hair Salon specializes in providing personalized haircuts.

One thing we’d like to point out is that they have a variety of treatment options for various hair conditions. These include special, keratin, and chemical treatments. 

Now, we’re not big fans of the fact that they have a small team, as we think this limits their capacity to accept clients simultaneously.

However, we don’t believe this impacts the quality of their service. In fact, we interviewed previous customers, who expressed their satisfaction with the results because they were patient and accommodating.

In sum, Sejong Hair Salon is unquestionably one of the best Korean hair salons in Vancouver, offering customized hair services for a wide range of customer preferences.

Pros

  • Years of experience
  • Open seven days a week
  • Transparent pricing
  • Convenient online booking system

Cons

  • Small team
  • Doesn’t offer digital perm

Customer Reviews

Very patient and pleasing results

“Amber did an amazing job dying my hair. She was super patient consulting with me about the color I wanted.  Loved the result and would totally recommend!.” -Stephanie C. 

Courteous hairdressers and overall top-notch customer service

“I had originally booked for Julien, but due to the unforeseen booking system error, they suggested my haircut getting done by another stylist. I was quite disappointed since I made my reservation a month ago. However, the staff members were courteous and managed to squeeze me in for a haircut with Julien right before their closing hour. The haircut was amazing, but more importantly, staff members in this salon had some of the best customer service I’ve experienced. They were professional and apologetic –  because of my long wait, they gave me a 15% DC! As a new Vancouverite, I was lucky enough to find my go-to stylist/hair salon so early and I could not be happier.” – J J.

JK Hair Salon is a Korean hair salon in Vancouver that believes healthy hair care is important because when you look good, you feel good.

This establishment has two locations, one in 776 Thurlow Street and Unit 1 – 119 W. Pender Street, where they accept walk-in clients. 

We liked that they offer a wide range of coloring services, including balance, highlights, ombre, and balayage. We believe that by providing various options, customers can freely choose rather than being limited to a few choices.

JK Hair Salon also provides digital setting perms, Japanese straightening, and keratin smoothing for those who want to curl, straighten, or smoothen their hair.

We were also impressed by their extensive line of hair care products that repair and nourish damaged hair. We would also like to mention that their hair products come in a complete set, so it may be a bit pricey.

We were disappointed to learn that their hair care products are quite expensive. We only wish they sold them separately so customers could choose which product they wanted.

Nonetheless, we continue to recommend their services because the majority of customers we interviewed praised them for being friendly and taking the time to provide only the best results.

If you’re looking for a full-service Korean hair salon, we think you should visit JK Hair Salon.

Pros

  • Two office locations
  • Offers digital setting perm
  • Numerous hair care products
  • Wide variety of coloring options

Cons

  • Relatively higher prices for hair care products
  • Limited range of services

Aklima Salon and Spa is a Korean hair salon located in Mount Pleasant, and they specialize in Korean straightening and perming.

What we liked best about this salon is that they prioritize your hair’s health, which is why they only use products designed to keep your hair damage-free.

We were impressed by their  ability to provide highlight and hair coloring without using bleach, as we believe this allows customers to achieve their desired color without damaging their hair.

They also offer iWave, which is a digital perm service where they use products and equipment ordered from Korea. 

Aside from that, we appreciate that their haircut and quick wash and blow rates don’t cost more than CAD35. 

Unfortunately, this company has a limited portfolio of work. We thought this would’ve been useful for prospective clients to see their past work.

They also have limited availability, so we suggest you check their website first and make an appointment.

Despite this, Aklima Salon and Spa has received numerous compliments from customers.

In fact, the vast majority of clients we’ve spoken with have praised their work because they are able to provide excellent treatments and styling while keeping their hair healthy.

Overall, we think Aklima Salon and Spa deserved to be on our list as they utilize authentic products and equipment to deliver excellent results.

Pros

  • Specializes in Korean smoothing treatments
  • Offer no-bleach highlight and coloring
  • Full-face threading services available
  • Hairdressers with over 30 years of experience
  • Affordable prices

Cons

  • Limited work portfolio
  • Limited availability
