Curls, by Nadine

Client Reviews

Since I moved to Barrie 9 years ago I had a hard time finding a hairstylist I loved! Till I found Nadine. I had dark hair and lots of grey. And my hair grows fast! She made my hair into the best shade of blond! I love love love my colour! And love Nadine!! She is the best hairstylist I ever had!! I highly recommend her. And as well I love our chats we have together when getting my services done!

Having curly hair I’ve been careful who I allow to TOUCH my hair. Nadine is very knowledgeable with ethnic hair. She knows when blowdrying straight the roots MUST be thoroughly dried to avoid your hair ‘growing big’ once you leave and knows how to tame the frizzzz. . Her phone is always open - you txt any questions or ideas or praise reports and she’ll answer. Fantastic hairstylist and colourist! Love her ❤️ My stylist from way back when...

Nadine had cut and coloured my hair. The cut was fantastic and the colour so natural. She is a joy to work with and very friendly.

My children and I have been a client of Nadine's for a few years! She has an excellent understanding of curly hair and straight. My children are mixed and she has shared her expertise with us and always offers my 14 year old support in independently managing her hair. Her hair is long and curly with several different curl patterns and textures and can now handle it with confidence and her hair is healthy and gorgeously lush curls. My son has beautiful big curls and he loves the way she styles his hair. The best is that albeit Nadine is an expert in curls she styles colors and cuts my bone straight hair beautifully. I would highly recommend Nadine regardless the type of hair you have. I know she will take care of you with professionalism, confidence and style

I was always someone who hated going to get my hair cut growing up because it seemed like nobody knew how to handle my very long naturally curly hair. I would ask for a trim and end up losing 6 inches. When I heard about Nadine from a fellow curly haired lady I was so excited to know there was someone who was so dedicated to curly hair. I booked an appointment right away, and now I will never trust anyone but Nadine with my curls. She is AMAZING! She did exactly what i wanted, the products she used were incredible, the experience was pampering, and my hair has never felt so good!

Hi, I’ve been a client of Nadine’s for many years now. I move with her from her last place of employment to her own salon. My hair wasn’t always curly, it changed from wavy to curls about 10 yrs ago. My usual stylist at the time wasn’t getting it to work anymore, I couldn’t find anyone that could do a good job. I went to Nadine after seeing her ad, I would never want to lose her as a stylist. She is truly amazing, she fantastic with waves to curls & straight her, too. I have waves - curls & sometimes I like to go a bit straighter. She does it all beyond my expectations, she really is the best. You have got to try her, my word & testimonials is nothing compared to the cut she can give you. After 1 cut you’ll never want to go back to any other stylist. Thank you, Nadine!!!

Nadine saved my hair, I never knew I had such beautiful ringlets and was drying it out by washing it everyday with store bought products! She did everything right to restore it and taught me how to care for it - now it is my pride and joy!

Julia - Client since 2016

I have to say, you did such an amazing job with everyone's hair and it was a pleasure working with you and having you along on our wedding day. You are so wonderful and you do such a fabulous job. My mom was in love with her hair, as were the bridesmaids. No one's hair fell out or any other issues... It was great! I was so happy I put my hair up, the humidity was killer and it would have been a disaster had I put it down. I loved it so much too! Based on the photos we've seen so far I've loved everything about it, thank you so much. I will for sure keep your contact info for future friends weddings because you are just so great!

My daughter has gorgeous ringlets and I never knew how to help her get the most of her style. My hair is pin straight. I didn't know how to get this frizz to turn to ringlets. Nadine showed her how to get back her natural curls and taught her to love her hair. She will never let anyone else cut her hair. We love Nadine. She knows curls.

Thanks for the great cut and colour last week, I am getting many compliments. I am happy you have your own salon now :)

Nadine is an amazing stylist with a great knowledge base for working with all types of hair. Not only did she save me from a bad haircut back in 2012(took a few months to recover but she did a great job) but she taught me how to care for and style my curly hair so I learned to love it instead of just tying it back! She's also great with colour and uses excellent quality products. I highly recommend her.

Nadine is the BOMB!! I'm a curly girl who wants straight, sleek, smooth. Nadine always listens and understands and gives me results I love from Keratin to Olaplex, to cuts and colour. She is one of a kind!! So lucky to have her as my hair guru :)

Tina - Client since 2015

My children were both blessed with curly hair yet very different textures. Since finding Nadine a year ago we have seen the health and condition of their hair improve immensely! My 12 yr old daughter is now knowing how to care for her own hair; as she has been given hair care lessons from Nadine. I highly recommend Nadine to care for your hair if it is curly! My hair is very straight and fine and she recently did the most amazing color hi-lite cut and style. I honestly feel that Nadine's immense knowledge and passion makes her one of the best stylists BARRIE and GTA have to offer

Kim - Client since 2015

Nadine is a TREAT a PLEASURE to work with as well as an AMAZING hairstylist! I am a hairstylist with curly hair and she taught me how to LOVE my curls. I will always have a special place in my heart and CURLS for this wonderful lady!!!!

Tina M - Client since 2015

Thank you so much for the fantastic haircut. I love it. It's great to have you back & my nice haircuts again. Nobody does hair like you, you're the best :)

Sandra - Client since 2015

Nadine has been a life-saver for me! I have insanely curly hair and it's been so hard trying to find a hairdresser who can give me a good cut and style. Many of them have not been sure what to do with my hair. So when I found Nadine, I realized that I had found a hairdresser who knew exactly how to cut and style curly hair! She did exactly what I wanted. I learned so much from her about styling my hair too, which was a bonus. Every time she cuts and styles my hair, I'm happy with the results. I won't go to any other hairdresser!

Jocelyn - Client since 2015

Hey everyone, I have been visiting Nadine for years! I actually live in Toronto and drive to get my hair done in Barrie once she moved her business there!She has been with me from when my hair was literally like straw to the beautiful lush and shiny creation it is now! I would recommend her client centered care to anyone who wants a stylist for life!

Melissa - Client since 2011

I absolutely love my cut and styles since you've been doing it these last 2 years. I never met any stylist who knows curls like you do. You did a great job fixing my cut done elsewhere. I hope you're doing hair for a long time to come, I can't imagine going to anyone else to do my hair & I am picky. Thanks for a wonderful cut and style every time, Nadine!!!  get so many compliments, my friend loves her curls too. She always complain about her hair until you started doing it, it's nice to see her happy & confident with her curls. See you soon.

Sandra - Client since 2015

I am extremely picky with who touches my curls, because I've found regular hairdressers don't know what to do with curly hair. Nadine is the exact opposite! Her training and expertise is obvious, my hair looks amazing. I will now go to no one else but Nadine!

Kelly - Client since 2015

I am the highest maintenance person I know, when I was referred to Nadine I was beyond happy. I walk out happy and satisfied each and every time. Nadine is amazing at what she does and I a genuine, lovely women. Nadine thank you for taking great care of my hair!!!

Diana - Client since 2015

My hair is great, I am getting lots of compliments so I guess it was a needed cut after 7 years !!!! And everything you taught me, I can't thank you enough. I have a friend that I have referred to you for her next hair cut too! Because you are so wonderful!!! Thanks again!

Nadine is a hair angel who is hardworking, dedicated, trained and professional all the time. Her home salon is clean and comforting. Don't believe any bad reviews about her or her home, some past employers are very vindictive when an amazing stylist leaves the company and all her clients follow. How shameful that a company or individuals of a company would stoop so low as to sabotage a young woman just trying to be successful and support her daughter. I am a long time client who gets everything from colour, cut, olaplex, keratin and even extensions done and have never experienced anything but wonderful from Nadine.

Tina - Client since 2015

I first saw you last October for a cut, and you gave me the best haircut I've ever had - my curls were so happy and healthy, and your tips about creating volume while air drying with fine curly hair = amazing!!

Andrea - Client since 2015

I have had a good hair day literally EVERY DAY since I got my hair cut. :) You are a wizard!

Amber - Client since 2015

I have recently discovered Nadine and wish that I had years ago! I've been doing all the wrong things with my curls for over 30 years... and in 2 haircuts (and lots of tips from Nadine) I love my hair now! It is just so easy to work with and my cuts grow in so nicely. Nadine is a lovely person and I would recommend her to anyone with curly hair!
