Lawrence alone is worth a trip to Whistler. He gives the best shampoos and scalp massages and his haircuts always garner many compliments. Love him.
Booked from overseas 2 weeks before a wedding in Pemberton BC Canada. Couldn’t have been more pleased with the professional friendly and experienced service I received at Farfalla Hair. My vision of the style I wanted was delivered on point and then some! My dresser exceeded my expectations. I’m just sorry I can’t remember her name [edit: Stylist Liana]. I was given some excellent input on what would best suit me and own input was received well based on my own knowledge of my hair. I have NO trouble recommending this salon as they very kindly received 2 pre scheduled appointments and an additional 3 from our grouping going to the same wedding on the day before without any problems. So happy with them.
Lawrence did a beautiful haircut and treated my extremely dry hair, and then did a beautiful blow out with finishing with the wavy curl. It looks great. Thank you
Allyson loves her new hair. Her experience and outcome were noticed immediately by me and others. She wanted to go out and have people see her new hair style, and continues as we are back home in Seattle. This is a 13 yo who normally prefers to stay home. Liana, you helped a young teen feel on top of the world, and saved what was a traumatic hair cut (done by me hours earlier to cut out a knot formed over weeks or more that had grown to the size of a small fist, kind of like a knot of fine dog fur but huge). Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I have been visiting Farfalla for many years now. Emily and Lindy (currently on mat. leave) are doing an excellent job. I have been to many other places and never felt as happy with the service as with these two ladies and the receptionists alike. I specifically appreciate the warm and professional attitude from Emily and Lindy and their discrete, sensitive and efficient way of working. Now that Emily can work mid weeks, I will be back regularly as I used to before. Keep up the good work everyone!
Cassandra always gives me absolutely excellent service.Came in for a quick touch up but she made sure I was totally satisfied with a very good trim. Grateful for her care.
Estela has given me exactly the ombré look I was going for, really friendly staff and great atmosphere right in the heart of whistler village. I don’t think my hair has ever looked nicer, would highly recommend!
Rebekah is an amazing hair dresser, her skills are far beyond anyone I have experienced and I am super picky. If you’re blonde and need the perfect colour and perfect cut to boot she’s your girl. The rest of the staff are super lovely, I recommend this salon to anyone. Thanks girls.
This was honestly the best hairdressing experience ever. It started with a beautiful neck, shoulder and head massage with a gorgeous scented Aveda oil – such a nice way to relax after walking in the cold to the Village. My hair stylist was a super lovely lady named Hayley (mid-level stylist) and she was so helpful in deciding on a style that would suit me and considered weather and style factors which I was really appreciative about. The cut was perfect and I walked out with the smoothest, luscious blow dried hair. My hair hasn’t felt so nice. I normally opt for cheap haircuts because of my budget but the $63 I spent here was so incredibly worth the hour of treatment. Hayley is my go-to hair dresser for the year that I’m here. So stoked.
Brilliant, helpful reception service and welcome from the gorgeous Natalie. Amazing Eyebrow wax/tint and lash tint by Emily – she makes you look and feel a thousand times more amazing than you thought you ever could on exit..thank you so much!
My hair experience with Charlotte was absolutely stunning. She was able to give me the cut I wanted much faster than previous stylists and my hair has never looked better. A delight to chat to, I will be requesting to see Charlotte the next time I book!
I love Farfalla! Genevieve is so wonderful… And listens to my ideas.. great consulting! Hand massage… I got a regular massage and Pedicure this time too! Can’t say enough! And… I come from Washington state every September… And the hair style appointment is always the best stop!!!!
The service was great! They got me in right away when I popped by with my young sleeping baby, to see if they had any openings available. Baby of course woke up right as I sat in the chair but the stylist was still able to give me an awesome hair cut even while I held a squirming, fussy baby. I was really worried my babe was going to start annoying others there but the staff was great about it, coming by and talking to her etc. While I was finally able to get a little pampering for myself:) Thank you so much Farfalla girls! I was so flustered I didn’t even catch the name of my hairstylist but they will have it on file and I will definitely be back to see her!!:-)
Cassandra is amazing, she is very talented and makes me feel pampered when I am in her care. The extra details of the hand and scalp massages are very appreciated. I look forward to my visits every 8 weeks.
I always get excellent service at Farfalla. The team is friendly and welcoming; they are talkative and engage in conversation; they always do a great job on my hair cut – no matter who it is; their head massage is very relaxing and a nice added touch; they always offer to style my hair so I look fabulous when I leave; they often give me tips on how to blow dry, colour, or treat my hair without trying to sell me on products (even though they suggest products sometimes). I don’t live in Whistler anymore, but I still get my hair cut at Farfalla because it is such a great experience and good value for the price.
I was so happy with the work of your stylist, make up artist and esthetician! They all made me feel and look beautiful on my special day. Thanks again to all the girls that helped make my day the best ever. I do not live in Whistler but I am more than happy to share my images with you. Please use them for whatever purpose you wish.
I just wanted to say how happy I am that I decided to visit you guys at Farfalla. I’m a hairdresser by trade, having a break from hair whilst living in Whistler – and after 11 years of hairdressing I’ve seen all sorts of salons and stylists.
You girls on the front desk are lovely and efficient, the salon is relaxing, clean, and vibrant, and Gen (and the other stylists I saw around me) are a credit to the business.
I’ve had my hair done 3 times professionally in Whistler and the workmanship wasn’t what I’d call amazing. I just accepted that maybe I was being picky. But after having Gen perfect my hair, take time and care and energy to make it beautiful again, I’ve been reminded that I shouldn’t drop my standards. I just need to tell everyone that Farfalla is the place to go!
I’m just trying to say you guys are so rad, and I really appreciate it! I love my colour, my cut and love that I was comfortable the whole appointment. Thank you!

Hi, I got my hair coloured by Rebekah today and I just want to say a big thank you to her. I’ve got my hair coloured so many times before but no one has done as amazing job as Rebekah did. I’m finally the shade of blonde I’ve wanted to be and its all thanks to her. She’s so talented and I’m just so happy with the great job she did!
I’m happy with the cut! Mini was good 🙂 I’m hoping that with more regular cuts my hair will actually be healthy enough to grow long again.. Oh and Emily was both professional and completely welcoming when I booked, she’s on it with customer service.
After getting home and gawking at myself for a bit, I just thought i’d let you know I’m stoked! Haircut and waxing is awesome! I’m a bad client in that i didn’t really have a particular cut in mind, i think Mini handled it (me) very well 🙂 Thanks!
My hair looks great, although I say it myself! Lawrence is skilled.
I just had to let you guys know what a fabulous job Lawrence did on my hair last wed. I just wanted to say it’s probably one of the best blowouts I’ve ever had and I’ve had ALOT!! Thanks again and I will DEFINITELY be calling next time I’m in town.
What a fantastic day. The ladies felt so pampered and you can tell they felt so pretty! Can you please make sure to add a gratuity to your stylists and make up artists for the amazing work. Thank you.

My stylist Cassandra is the best and I love the casual unpretentious feel of the salon.You can read my review about Farfalla in my blog: http://www.empowernetwork.com/taxifairy/whistler-hair/
I had a great time! I have seen Hilary a couple times now and she is just amazing. Very good at what she does and such great customer service! She is a star I would say! She really takes the time and makes you feel so comfortable. Thanks again and I will be booking in soon again!!
I got my hair cut and dyed at Farfalla on last Monday, the 27th of July. I absolutely LOVE it!! The colors are EXACTLY what I wanted. I was wondering if you could send me the formula used so that I can get the same colors next time I get my hair done at an Aveda salon at home here in Texas. Thanks again!
Whistler’s best waxing place by far! Thank you for the most painless hair removal experience i have ever had.
I wanted to say Thank- you to your Esthetician Lindy. She was FANTASTIC! My friend and I both commented on how great she was with us, she was a wealth of information, very warm and did a great job. So please pass on a thank-you to her as it really added to our weekend. Thanks
I had my haircut by Rebekah. While I was there, an amazing song played.
What do you play in the salon? I can’t stop thinking about that tune! Plus, I love my haircut!
Genevieve did a bang up job! I love it! I didn’t get a cut but the colour looks great. Took a few hours 😉 Thanks
My daughter Kristina just had her hair cut there with Cassandra the other
day – and is loving it!

I had my hair cut by Nicole. She was great! Good cut, nice girl, good energy. Thank you!
I had a facial with Emily from Australia last Wed. It was THE BEST
facial massage I have ever had!!!!!
- Lovely Lamington Lady
I wanted to let you know that Cassandra is great! Every time I get a haircut I get so many compliments on her work with my head. She is amazing! YAY!

I got my hair coloured and cut at Farfalla by Kristin Begin and I cannot think of a time that I was happier with the experience I had. I am a very low maintenance person and the cut she gave me is wash and go and for the first time in the life of my curly hair, it really is just that. Besides the confidence she gave me with the cut and colour, she was very personable and friendly. She even offered to go and get me some lunch. As a Manager myself I would do everything I could to hold onto her as long as you can. Many Thanks

I really enjoyed the licorice mint tea. Everything was neat and clean just like it always is. I gave Emma clearance to do my hair as she wished and this forces me to grow and learn how to handle a new hair style. Finally I’m using the blow dry gel & blow dryer which is giving my hair a much more professional look. I now like the hair cut & glad I came to see her.
I was in the salon for a hair cut and style, then Mom decided we should get it dyed too. Just wanted to let Jayne know I LOOOOOVE it! It feels so good to have healthy hair again! The color is perfect- you nailed it. The rain turned my blowout curly today and the cut was perfect for the curls too. What I’m most impressed with is that you were able to keep the length while getting rid of the crappy ends. I felt so spoiled while I was there. So, kudos to you…. I dont think i’ve ever been happier with a cut or dye job.
I wanted to say how happy i am with my hair colour and cut done by Anastasia, i am thinking i may have to drive to Whistler every time i need my hair done!
Had a great hair cut by Jessica today, I feel like a teenager!
*Postcard sent to salon….
Thank you Jayne for the BEST blowdry i have ever had. My hair stayed in place and straight for almost a week and still looked good. Well done that girl!
Hi! I was just in for a haircut, my last haircut I had to go to a different hair stylist at another salon, and had been severely disappointed with the results (straight bob cut, which made my curly hair look triangular).
I’m so ecstatic with the cut she gave me tonight, I felt compelled to e-mail my glowing feedback. I gave Roxann some pointers of what I wanted, but mostly let her do as she saw fit, and I am so unbelievably happy I did. It’s by far the best one I have ever had!
My very best compliments– she’s without a doubt a phenomenal asset to Farfalla! Thank you so much! Rest assured, I’ll be recommending her and the salon to anyone with an ear! All the best.
