Dan Di Ilio
Owner & Stylist


Everyday at Tangles is an exciting one for Dan, as he comes in with two goals in mind.

As the owner, he wants to ensure the salon is one where clients can feel comfortable and enjoy the experience, leaving happy, refreshed and confident. He is passionate about using high-quality products, and informing clients on how to keep their hair healthy between trips to Tangles.

Dan also likes to show off his cutting and colouring chops, as he also works as a stylist to ensure men, women and children can use their look to express who they really are.

Seeing clients leave with a smile on their face is the best part of Dan’s day, whether they’ve come in for a trim, Updo, whole new look, or leave with freshly-coloured hair.

Taking pride in continuing education in hair for himself and Tangles staff, Dan’s promise is that the salon stays up-to-date on trends and techniques, and provide high-quality services to the Guelph community.

She loves blonding and working with long hair. Her talent and pride really shows in all her work. She is also a makeup artist and threads eyebrows.

I had such a great experience at this salon! Not only was everyone super professional and friendly, Amanda did an amazing job on my hair, and even took the time to show me some techniques for my hair. Definitely recommend this salon for anyone in the area, and I will most definitely be going back again!
Best hair salon in Guelph! I couldn't be happier with the service, I have been going to tangles hair designs for a very long time and nothing but tremendous service.
I have very thick and curly hair which I like to straighten or leave curly but it's hard to find someone talented enough to achieve a cut that makes both these styles look good. Dan achieved this and more. He "de-thatched" my hair making it so much lighter and healthier. No lines or choppiness and I feel amazing! It's a welcoming atmosphere and everyone was so friendly. I have found my "forever" salon. Thanks Dan.
