Friendly and Knowledgeable

by Cynthia on MARCH 14, 2017

I found Adina on your website and I'm glad I did! I've struggled for years with my 12 year old's kinky curly hair. I've used every oil, conditioner, moisturizer imagineable, and watched countless videos trying to find some method of bringing the curls and moisture back to my daughter's hair! Adina has been great with my daughter, very patient in her explanations and so willing to help! I know it will be a bit of a process but finally my daughter is beginning to accept her hair and love her curls!

Ambiance is important

by Jenelle on JUNE 12, 2018

I enjoy going to Adina's place in part because I love her salon! It is in her home which I didn't think I would like Some home salons are just scuzzy... but her salon is very professional and comfortable! I was surprised. Aside from that, Adina got far more curl from my hair than anyone else had. She knoss all kinds of tricks and tips to get your hair at its best. Adina embraces her own natural curls and helps others discover just what their hair can do. I would place her in Barrie, the curly stylist here isn't very good but aside from that, I am pleased.

Excellent Deva Cut and Treatment

by Christina on JUNE 12, 2018

I had my first Deva cut and treatment with Adina at Curly Girls Studio yesterday and I have to say I have fallen in love with my curls again. I dyed my hair last year and it has become dry and brittle due to a lack of a proper hair care routine. Not only did Adina revive my curls, she also educated me throughout the entire appointment regarding my hair and what I should be doing to bring it back to life. She also sent me a follow up email with the products she used, so now I know exactly what I need to purchase going forward. After the appointment my curls were moisturized and bouncy. I will be following her tips every day, and I can’t wait to see how my hair improves over time.

Adina changed my life

Adine was recommended to me by a friend who knew that I was searching for a permanent change even if it was a little outside of Barrie. Adina taught me that my natural texture is beautiful and showed me how to care for it. She taught me about the curly girl method and let me read Lorraine Massey's book on curly hair. She gave me a sheet containing the products we used and how to use it at home. After a year and a half my hair is now beautiful and healthy and best of all... it is all natural. Thank you Adina for helping me see that I do not have to fry my hair straight or blond to feel beautiful! I am not a sheep and I will no longer do what is supposedly beautiful. I even stopped getting lash extensions and removed the false nails. I have chosen a more natural lifestyle. All new me!

Adina is a miracle stylist!

by Cathy Ishmael on AUGUST 11, 2016

Adina is my miracle stylist! I found her on your website and couldn't be happier with her work. My hair is type 3b and for the past 5 years I was straightening it with keratin treatments. After deciding to embrace my curls I found it inconsistent and difficult to repair the damage done by the flat iron. Adina fixed that! After the first session my hair has regained a softness and curl like never before. She is awesome at following up- she sent an email the same evening to ask how my curls held up in the humidity. She is very professional and really cares about her clients. Wish I found her years ago!

Great introduction to curl care & maintenance

by Britt on AUGUST 28, 2017

Adina, the woman behind Curly Girls Studio, is great. I especially recommend her if you are new to the world of curl care and maintenance. She has an expansive knowledge of products and techniques and will spend as much time with you as necessary to answer all of your questions. She even has a book about curls that she will give you to read while you're in the chair! Her studio is extremely spacious and you will feel very at home. I received an excellent cut and style from Adina and, more important, walked away with a few tips and techniques I had no prior knowledge of before. What is also impressive about Adina is that she answered any questions I sent her via email afterwards- she understands that the world of curl care can be confusing/overwhelming/frustrating for some of us. She is very kind and patient and I felt very comfortable contacting her after my appointment to ask a couple of follow-up questions about my hair. It's great to have a curly hair studio north of Toronto, as most of them are downtown and can be difficult to access. This is also proves convenient when you want to purchase specialty curl care products and don't want to go all the way downtown for them or order online.

Fell in love with my curls

by Tina on JUNE 23, 2016

I can't say enough about Adina, my experience at the studio has always been great. Adina is very professional and is great at walking me through hair care tips. She always goes the extra mile and pampers me . I recently got a hair cut with some pintura highlights and I'm loving it. I wish I found her sooner.

Great cut and colour

by Poppy on MARCH 24, 2017

Adina has been taking care of my curls for some time now and I couldn't be happier! Not only does my hair look and feel healthier, but I am able to manage and style my curls on my own now thanks to her advice, product recommendations and coaching sessions. The colour service I receive is great also. Very gentle products yet still covers my grey; also fades out so gradually that I am not left with horrible looking growth in between colouring sessions. I. Couldn't be more pleased!

My curls!!

by Rebecca on OCTOBER 07, 2016

I found Adina on naturallycurly.. and I am glad I did! She brought life back to my curls! Her salon is super cute and professional. I love that she teaches us everything she knows and gives a great lesson specific for your hair type.

Great cut but worse colour of my life

by Anonymous on FEBRUARY 23, 2017

Adina gave me some great advice and got my curls to pop.. the only problem was the terrible highlights I ended up with! She took two tries to get it right but I still ended up with light roots and dark patches. I am not sure how it all went so wrong.. 2 stars for the cut but I really can't score more than that based on the colouring job.

Saved my hair!!

by Emily Amon on FEBRUARY 14, 2017

I came to Adina with a mess of nappy curly hair, that hadn't been combed or cut in months if not close to a year. She saved my hair! She remoisturized, and conditioned my curls, and gave them their life back. I cannot say enough how nice it is to have an expert working on your curls!

Amazing Start to Reviving My Natural Curls

by Sasha on JUNE 08, 2018
Service Received: DevaCut

Highly recommended! Adina and Yvonna were an absolute pleasure. They were completely professional, knowledgeable and sweet. I have finally committed going natural curly, so I opted for the Cut and Tutorial service. I have very thick and long hair, and it was just refreshing to have someone so patient with treating and styling my hair. Adina honestly looks out for your best interests, she didn't push to cut a lot of the hair off (since I said I really would like to keep as much length as possible), and she didn't push me to buy a bunch of products. The Deva Cut is something I wish I started doing years ago, instead of the standard wet and straight across trim. Overall I left very happy, and it's been 2 days since the cut and style, and my hair is still looking great!

Great hair for the first time

by Emily Puccini on SEPTEMBER 24, 2016

Like many other curly girls, I grew up struggling to manage my hair. I started going to Adina about a year ago and I am so, so grateful that I found her! Not only does she pamper my curls every time I visit, but she has taught me how to properly care for my hair on a daily basis, using Deva instruction and her own advice. My hair care routine and confidence have really improved thanks to my "curly coach!"

My one and only

by Sonia Hugh on AUGUST 12, 2016

I have been going to Adina's studio for many years. I've lived abroad for a majority of that time and everytime I visited Toronto, she was the first stop. Adina is very professional and really takes the time to understand your unique curly situation. She is the only one I trust with my curly hair.

THANK you Adina!

by Pooja on OCTOBER 05, 2016

I have been seeing Adina for over a year now, and I wish I had found her sooner. She is incredibly talented with curly cuts, and she she teaches me something new about caring for my curls every time I see her!
