Krista is amazing!! I now love my curls. <3

I was first introduced to Krista through a contact I met in a networking group. She came to visit Krista and wrote a blog post about her....I was totally intrigued. I thought, I need to see her!!! I have tried to work with my curls but mostly, I was a pony tail girl. I always, always, always had my hair pulled back. So, I booked was able to see Krista back in April 2015. I was totally wowed!! I learned so much and took what I learned and ran with it. But, I was so stuck on sticking to my 'routine' that I wasn't doing all of the things she taught me! I thought that I was doing 'ok' with my curls, but still wasn't completely happy.I was getting frustrated and kept thinking, why am I doing this? Am I doing ok? I decided to go back and see her again. I decided to go a little shorter...and I am so happy I did! And that I listened to my gut! We went over my routine during my appt and we discovered that I was doing a few things 'wrong!' Ah! I was not scrubbing in and out the cleanser so I had a lot of build up at my roots. And I wasn't rinsing out my conditioner so my curls were kind of being pulled down and just looked like they had leftover product in them! I am sure there was more....but now I can't remember. I just wanted to say....listen to your gut!! And, you don't always have to stick to your routine...change it up with the options Krista gives you. And, don't be afraid to ask questions. I thought if I asked, it might be perceived that I didn't keep it all in and that I really didn't learn too much but it isn't like that at all! Krista has a genuine gift that she wants to share with us!!!! Pick her brain and ask away!! I feel SOOOOO blessed to have her in my life. There is SO much info to take in at the first appointment that I so appreciated the refresher. Ok, that's enough. I am happy to say that this is the beginning of my lifelong curl journey. I recommend Krista to anyone who will listen to me...and if you compliment my curls, I will ALWAYS drop her name. Love it!!

A lovely experience and kind person!

One of the most genuinely nice people I have ever met. Krista was amazing- she really took the time to educate me about my hair and how to care for it, and gave me the best haircut I have ever had (no lie! This is the best haircut I have ever had! I love it!!)! Instead of the usual three hour appointment, it took about five hours to sort out my hair- Krista wanted it to be perfect! I've never seen such dedication and passion in a stylist before, and she has such pride in her work. I'll definitely gladly travel the 6 hours to Barrie to get my hair cut by her again! I'm so excited to properly take care of my newly discovered curly hair :) Thank you again Krista!! Xx

Krista provides a fun and informative experience.

After having my hair cut at the Devachan Salon on Broadway, I wanted to find a stylist who would continue the Devacurl philosophy with my hair. I found Krista through the Deva website and contacted her for my next appt. I appreciated her private home salon which allowed for total concentration on the needs of my hair. I felt at ease discussing the pros and mainly cons of my frizzy fine hair. Krista was able to provide me with the haircut I wanted at the same time educating me on styling techniques and which products to use for my desired look. My first experience with Krista was so much fun - almost like being a kid in a candy store, only in this case, so many Deva products to pick and choose from. It's impossible to find the Deva products here in Ontario unless you travel into Toronto or order direct from the Deva website but Krista was able to fill my recent product order. She continually keeps her clients informed through social media; whether it's educating us on the harmful chemicals found in most shampoos/conditioners, posting before and after pics of her latest amazing transformations, or giving advice on how to unscrew those impossible 32 ounce containers of Deva's One Condition. I loved my first haircut with Krista and hope to have many more.

HAPPY Curly Girl!!

I was so tired of the triangle of frizz, hair stylists that BRUSH my hair, comment on the girls then proceed to straighten it. Yes a completely different look than what I walked in with and something I would NEVER re-produce at home.

What a delightful awakening to learn about my curls, have a cut that is specific to my curls and know how and when to apply product followed by the best method to style. How AMAZING to be able to create this stunning head of curls at home, with no frizz! Being a curly girl isn't a battle when you have knowledge and KRISTA is passionate about sharing the know-how and the love!! Comfortable and relaxing salon, caring and compassionate professional who genuinely cares - I highly recommend Krista and her passion for curls so you will love your own!!!

I never thought I could have such gorgeous curls!

I've known Krista for 15 years. Long before either of us had leaned to love our curls. Time and life has caused our paths to cross and separate several times over the years. Several years ago Krista encouraged me to embrace my roots... My curly roots that is. I didn't have any strong feelings of dislike towards my curls I had just never found a stylist who knew how to cut/style my thick curly hair. I always left the salon and went straight home to wash and re-style my hair. I figured if I was paying good money for a style I might as well get one that I could feel looked respectable so I started letting my stylists straighten my hair. About 5 years ago I had the unfortunate experience of receiving a bad chemical cut. My curls were wrecked! I bought a straightener and for the past 5 years I have been wearing my hair straight. Until January of this year. Krista was so committed to sharing her wealth of knowledge and expertise that she spent 10 days out of her Christmas holiday traveling to destinations far from her home and young family (I'm talking long drives, flights, airport delays, the whole nine yards) to help a new group of women embrace their curls! I took the plunge and am glad I did. I'm still learning what works best for me and my curls, but for the first time when I left Krista's chair I didn't rush home to restyle my hair. I had gorgeous, soft, defined, frizz-free curls!!! In fact, I didn't want to way my hair because I was worried is never get it to look the same again! Krista goes above and beyond to help curly-haired women learn to love and embrace their curls. From her at home hair care guide to help you recreate your style, to arranging with local salons to carry Deva products so that we have easy access to the products we need, to her clients-only Facebook group where we can post pictures, hair care routines, and trouble shoot any curly hair issues we may be having. Krista is dedicated to her craft in a way that I have never encountered before with any other stylist, and her knowledge, expertise and dedication shows... On the amazing heads of curly haired clients who are lucky enough to count her as our stylist!

Totally Amazing!

Krista is a god-send. Her professionalism is amazing. I have been getting the wrong haircuts and wrong advice for thirty years! Since I've seen Krista and learned the curly girl techniques (that she so meticulously explains, demonstrates, and believes in!) I have received so many compliments on my hair! People keep asking how I get my curls to look so good!

I highly recommend this service to every curly girl I know and meet. Seriously, Krista is awesome. Her boutique is so nice, her personality is warm and friendly, and she oozes a passion for what she does. It was a five star experience!

The best curly hair artist

Krista is the best curly hair artist. For the first time in my life I was able to walk away from my hair appointment with perfect looking curls. Her cutting style and product application made a huge difference. She also showed me how to maintain and improve my curly style on my own. I wish I had gone to someone like her when I was younger. All of those years of bad haircuts could have been avoided. Thanks Krista. You are a curly hair miracle worker!

She amazed me!

I am a life long curly hair girl who has spent years developing ways to make my curls as nice and beautiful as I could. BUT- no way was I ever cutting my long locks short for fear of a repeat nightmare in my late teens! I recently decided in my 30's I'd try to have it cut short above my shoulders one more time. I went to Krista- and after 3.5 hours of sculpting and working "together" on my new short locks... the outcome was amazing and I will never have my hair cut by another stylist ever again.
