The Ellenoire team has been working with deva curl products since 2003. We were one of the first companies to sell the product and teach the method in Canada. We opened a new full service Deva inspired salon in 2010. Everyone on our team works in the DevaCurl method, and all our retail staff are trained to prescribe products for your curly hair needs.
I've had my hair cut here a few times by both Noel and Sara but I don't think I'll be back. The cuts are fine but I always leave with a bad taste in my mouth because of how awful the owner Noel is. She has no customer service skills and acts disgracefully towards her staff. I've seen her throw a temper tantrum much like a child because she didn't get her way on multiple occasions and after all the bad reviews she gets maybe she would change her attitude but she doesn't. I don't want to support a terrible business owner. Sorry
Wonderful to have a salon where the stylists are experts in curly hair styling! The staff is super friendly and supportive and I look forward to every visit. Thank you so much for helping me love my curly hair again!
Anyone with curly hair knows the challenges of getting a haircut that compliments your curls. I thought the only option was getting a "wet cut"....nope! I love watching my stylist trim and shape my hair dry....no surprises! Can't live without my Deva Curl products either....nothing like them out there! Noelle makes sure everyone is well taken care of when at the salon...LOVE it!
A visit to Ellenoire to have your hair done is a sensory experience. The shop is beautiful and the scents provide aromatherapy (no extra charge!). If you have curly hair, then look no further in the Hamilton area, because Noelle and her staff will teach tips and tricks that are literally life changing. I can now go days without having to wet my hair to get it looking good. No frizz and defined curls.
I have been a client at Ellenoire for 6 years. Excellent staff and products have allowed me to embrace my curly hair after 50 years!!! Very pleased to have Sarah return after her adventure. Thanks Noëlle and her knowledgeable staff.
I’ve been visiting Ellenoire for all of my hair needs for longer than I can remember! Before the salon was open at its current location, I was getting my hair cut out of Noëlle’s home. Noëlle’s knowledge of curly hair exceeds any salon I’ve ever been to and I’ve never left unhappy or disappointed with my cut or color. I am constantly getting compliments on my hair and have never been so happy with my hair. I live almost an hour away from the salon and will continue to make the drive because of the level of service and care I receive every time.
I have travelled to different cities and had my hair cut at numerous Deva salons. Elle Noire is the most consistent with always results that I expect and more.Reviews that complain about the time consuming process of cuts; possibly explained by a temporary stylist and staff shortage. Noelle was managing, cutting and colouring clients, single-handedly for a period of time. Since I am a colour client, which is a time consuming process, I have spend hundreds of hours in this salon over the years. It is an open and accepting environment. They educate clearly, without judgement or pressure to purchase, a crucial component of carrying Deva success to home--which is what Elle Noire is committed to.Quarterly, Noelle brings in a celebrity stylist, who is a Deva original from New York. This commitment to clients for "a special experience" brings a party atmosphere for those few days, which not only is a lot of fun, but results in the best Deva cut you'd ever get. Worth treating yourself once a year.Obviously I have had such good experiences at this salon, but so much is the case that I carry a stack of their business cards in my purse so that I can save lost curly souls when I am asked about my hair.I'm thrilled that Sarah is back and look forward to seeing her in a few weeks!
I had been a client of the salon for a while, having my hair cut there about 4 times prior to my last cut. I had noticed Noelle, the owner, talking badly about her staff before but she had never cut my hair. Sarah was awesome and when she left I still went back-but that will be my last time. Not only was the cut poorly done, I had to wait 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment with no apology. The whole time Noelle was bad talking previous clients and staff. The cut took much longer than usual, about 3 hours. Overall a bad experience. It seems Sarah may be back which is a good thing for the salon but I can't get past the poor service and badmouthing that goes on. I will be going to another deva curl salon from now on.
I used to hate my curls! I was about to give up on ever liking my hair when a friend recommended that I go to Ellenoire, and after seeing how amazing her curls looked I had to go. Noelle and Sarah showed me how to properly take care of my hair and gave me the perfect cut for my curls. I walked out with beautiful hair straight out of a magazine. I’ll be a client for life!
Noelle is the reason I've stopped straightening my naturally curly, thick hair. The first time I came in for an appointment I was ecstatic and left feeling confident with my curls - which I never thought would happen! Noelle and her team are always friendly and happy to answer any questions I might have about maintaining my curls. I've been seeing her for years and she's the only person I would trust cutting my hair.
I've been to Ellenoire twice. I was beyond excited when I got my first appointment, but did not anticipate it taking 3 hours because Noelle had a guest stylist visiting from New York so they were chatting and taking selfies half the time. The second time around, as soon as I sat in the chair she started criticizing the person who cut my hair previously (which was her), followed by bashing a mother/daughter who were there because they went in with straight hair...which they straightened because they were donating it to cancer patients! That aside, I told her I wanted a lot of volume and left with my hair flat, unevenly cut and full of heavy product. I called back and explained that I was disappointed, so they squeezed me in for a "fix up" and all Noelle did was chop a bunch more off and put some refresher spray. I left with frizzy, flat, curl-less hair. I've never gone back since and wouldn't recommend it to anyone simply because of Noelle's poor attitude and treatment of employees, unreasonable use of foul language and criticism of clients TO other clients.
A simple cut takes 2-3 hours because they insist on drying your hair on low heat and it ends up heavy and weird (presumably no one would do this at home)The cuts are often uneve
Noelle is very knowledgable and does a great job but her 'bedside manner' is terrible. Very negative, aggressive and bossy. It's a shame because I'd be back if it wasn't for her.
Was really excited to got to this salon. I booked weeks in advance. I get there for my appointment and they were trash talking previous customers. I thought it was inappropriate, but if my hair looked good after whatever. The owner took a picture of my hair from before because she thought that I would have a big transformation. I was really excited. After 2 and a half hours my hair was crunchy like a helmet and straighter than when I walked in. The cut seems like it was just lopped off the bottom no shape to it at all. I hated it so much I washe'd my hair again when I got home. So disappointed, and I don't want to go back for an adjustment because of how she was trash talking her previous clients. Overall just so disappointed. Won't be going back going to look for a different devacur salon in the area.
Love, love, love this lady and the salon! My hair was a dried out mess with no curl left after several years of straightening. My hubby and son were wondering if I'd ever have curly hair again when a friend introduced me to Ellenoire. After 2 cuts and teaching session on how to care for my curls my hair is back to beautiful and bouncy, touchable healthy hair. So very happy to have found a salon that doesn't want to straighten out my beautiful locks. I can walk out from a cut and style ready to go to work or play. Thank you!
If you don't know how to manage your curly hair any deva stylist can change your life however listening to Noelle trash talk about her staff for two hours is not my idea of a good time but what really turned me off was that she was so distracted by bullying her cashier that my hair ended up horribly uneven and i had to touch it up at home
Noelle (the owner & now a Deva stylist) helped me get a handle on my curls. She is a wealth of knowledge about curly hair and takes the time to assess your hair/features to give you a great style. She has curly hair herself and is very familiar with the care required for beautiful curls.
Ellenoire is a boutique style salon that has super knowledgeable and helpful staff and talented stylists that are passionate about great curly hair. Would highly recommend!
