The top 10 salons for curly hair in Toronto

Salons for curly hair in Toronto are for those fed up with stylists who seem only to perform well on straight-haired clientele. It's not easy finding the perfect salon, but for people with curly locks, it's even harder.

Here are my picks for the top salons for curly hair in Toronto.

Curl Ambassadors

First-timers at this Harbord Village salon can get a styling session here for just $40. The Curly-Doo service includes a wash, dry, and natural styling with some curl-enhancing products. They also specialize in dry-cutting if you need a trim.

Curl Bar

The Deva-trained stylists at this King East salon provide a huge array of services for curly hair and really emphasize the specific needs of every hair journey. Besides cuts, they also do twist outs, locs, and colour treatments.

Jonathan Torch Curly Hair Institute

Jonathan Torch, the man behind the Curly Hair Solutions products, has gained a reputation as someone who knows how to tame frizzy hair. Curl Keeper is the crown of his enterprise – you can request this product while getting a (pretty pricey) cut at his salon in North York.

Urban Curls Boutique

Located on the Danforth, this is the type of salon that heavily advocates embracing your natural curls. Consultations are complimentary on all services, which, in addition to curly cuts, include locs, braids, wigs and extensions.

Hair Sprung

This salon, which originated in the Junction but now lives in Church Wellesley village, uses AG Hair Products, a natural Vancouver-owned brand that prides itself on being paraben-free, and offers cuts for all hair styles and textures, but specializes in curls.

Aphrodite's Sanctuary Hair Salon

A tiny salon located at Yonge and St. Clair, Aphrodite offers highlights, smoothing therapies and dry Deva cuts to transform those untamable curls into the tresses of a goddess.  

Curly Girls Studio

The owner of this Yonge & Eglinton salon, Adina Sherman, has several credits in her stylist's apron: she's Deva, Ouidad, and Curlisto certified, plus she's equipped with waterfall and volume techniques. For those who don't speak hair – it means Adina's got skills.

Barberella

A name play on the '60s sci-fi movie featuring Jane Fonda, this Dundas West salon has an unpretentious environment and skilled hair stylists. Book an appointment to turn your frizz Fonda-esque.

Gossips Hairstylists Inc.

Come see Mary at this Junction salon and get your custom curly cut, but make sure your hair is as natural as possible so she can better assess its condition. Gossips also does some amazing hair dyeing; pop by if you want to add some colours to your curls.

The Curl Lounge

The team at this Upper Beaches salon boast years of experience cutting all degrees of curly hair. They also offer other services like silk pressing, colouring, braids and wig installs.
