Hair Talk is the New Girl Talk!

Welcome to my first blog!


Ever struggle to find a good textured hair stylist in your area who really understands your afro, coily, kinky hair type?

Well look no further! Here is a list of the best of the best textured stylists. Some I’ve personally recommend, others referred to by friends or family, and some are recommendations from @heyitiscandia, co-founder of TCGM. These women are masters of their craft and truly understand the intricacies of fros, kinks and coils. Each have different specialities and offerings, so check out the deets
below:


East

  • CurlyLife: I first met owner Noelle at Hairdome before she ventured out on her own to open CurlyLife in Oshawa. She offers great product knowledge and introduced me to my favourite detangling brush!
  • Shine Curl Studio: New to the Oshawa scene in 2023 with an exciting new pricing option that is really shaking up the industry. You pick your price and pay what you think the service costs.
  • Curl Ambassadors: Located in Pickering and well known for their curly cuts. They have been going 16+ years and have multiple locations across the GTA
  • Cloud 9 Curls: Zermala is a colour and texture powerhouse. Scarborough coily girls love her. She is known for styling influencer @JennJackson and many other influential curlies.
  • MooreThanHair: One of my favourites in Scarborough. She treated my hair with so much care. I was referred to her by a coworker who always had the best silk press. I believe she recently moved out of Toronto (so sad).
  • TrichoSpa by Earthtones: Fairly new to the Ajax scene, they specialize in scalp care, thinning hair and hair loss.
  • Hairdome: A longtime curl studio in Pickering. I’ve been there several times, but the stylist I used is no longer there. They also offer men’s cuts and box braiding
Downtown
  • The Curl Lounge: An amazing salon specializing in all curl types, with tons of experience with coily hair types.
  • TKlovesHair aka Textured Hair EDU: TK is one of my absolute favorites in the game! Not only does she understand textures and hair care extremely well, but she is on a mission to bring textured hair education to stylists across Canada. She is also a curly colour specialist!
  • Curl Rituals: An amazing team of hair health educators and multi-texture specialists ready to meet your curly hair needs.

West

  • Take Khair Beauty Supply: I think this is Toronto’s first all-in-one full-service curly hair salon and beauty supply store! Founded by two sisters, they opened their doors in 2023
  • Hair by Reema Salon: If you’re in Mississauga, check her out for your curly hair and balayage needs!

Central/Uptown

  • Crown and Glory: On the scene since 2019, this one is for all the coil queens. I’ve never been, but I’m obsessed! The owner @the.Aisha.Experience is a true coil master and I love watching her serve up styles on IG.
