I booked an appointment with Karlene after reading so many great reviews on Naturallycurly.com and I was not disappointed. A year prior, I received a bad haircut from another salon that I had been growing out. I came to Karlene with photos of what I wanted, and she delivered exactly that along with great tips on how to detangle and properly moisturize my hair with great product recommendations. I am happy to know that I have found a hairstylist I trust. Thank you Karlene!

I have doubts deeply about any positive feedback in here and it shall be questionned. What you did to my hair will take at least a year if not more for recovery. if this damage is fixable at all ??!! I bought around 500 worth of hair repair to recover and waiting ...How on earth will I get my hair back ?!!! of course it's my problem now ...Go Figure

I had my first Deva cut today with Karlene and she made the experience so stress free! The salon's atmosphere is nice and sunny and unpretentious. While I was there 3 other clients walked in to buy products or wait for their appointments and they were clearly regulars because Karlene chatted with them about their families, etc. Karlene was very concerned about giving me exactly the style I wanted..she asked questions throughout the process to make sure I was happy with how it was going. She explained how to style my hair; which techniques and products. I'm so happy with my hair...I had a little extra bounce in my step for the rest of the day :)

I went in to get my hair washed, cut, and styled. I was SO happy with the results. Dixie is so sweet! My hair was soft and healthy that I am now very comfortable with my own hair. I have decided to stop texturizing my hair and go natural. All of the staff are friendly and it is a comfortable environment to be in. I can't wait to go back and get my hair done again! Curl Bar Beauty Salon made me love my own hair and take a break from extensions and weaves.

Last summer (2012) I went in for a perm and have been a client ever since. I have been transitioning from perm to natural and Karlene has been very helpful and generous with her advice. Her and Trudie treat their curstomers really well, the atmosphere is warm and inviting. I always like that my hair is never stiff and dry when I leave there. The prices are reasonable and they are ideally located in the st.lawrence neighborhood. Highly recommend!

I went last week Friday after work for a consultation with Dixie.(Booked online) First thing I noticed was that the place was nice a "airy". The teal blues and white really looked lovely together. As I walked in, everyone turned and welcomed me. All the ladies extended their hand with a warm handshake. Dixie escourted me to her chair and we got to talking. I felt truly listened to, as I explained my hair journey over the last few months. She give me some positive feedback on what I was already doing right and some suggestions without pushing any products or services on me. I felt so comfortable with her that I asked if I could stay and get a BC from her right then and there. As she didn't have another client coming, she was able to take me. After some much needed cutting and TLC, I left feeling great! I even got some samples and a free towel.

I have been looking for a hairdresser for the longest time. Frankly, I had put that idea on the back-burner because of the fact that every time I would go for a haircut it was a disaster. Yes, curly hair can be tricky. Comes Trudy and Curl Bar Beauty Salon. What a blessing! The Salon is clean and spacious. The staff is friendly. The clients are smiling too! Trudy is very attentive, passionate and talented. She cut and handled my crazy curly hair like a pro. Seriously, I came for a haircut and it ended up being a total make over. I am so happy to have found this salon. I recommend this place for every curly girl out there. It’s worth every penny. Thanks again Trudy for my new beautiful hair!

I've been going to Curl Bar since they opened in downtown Toronto. I was SO happy to find a curly hair salon that gave me ultimate service, but didn't charge me an arm and a leg! Karlene has been my favourite stylist for years - she used to take care of my hair at another Toronto salon, and I was so excited to reconnect with her at Curl Bar. Trudie is also amazing with my hair, and her knowledge of hair health and styling is incredible. Not only do the Curl Bar ladies know how to properly care for and style hair, but they also have created a uniquely positive and welcoming environment at the salon. I always feel good going to Curl Bar, and I always leave looking good too! I've seen them masterfully style all types of hair, but especially if you're a curly - Curl Bar is the spot for you!

I usually like to try out a salon at least three times before providing a review, but my experience thus far has at Curl Bar has earned my kudos. I had my naturally curly hair trimmed and conditioned by Karlene on the two occasions I've visited by and she does not disappoint. She provided some great hair care and styling tips, especially helpful as I made my way through post-partum breakage! The products recommended were great, and she helped to correct my usage of one when I expressed some concern over its effectiveness - now I am able to access its full benefits and am happier than ever with the results. I look forward to my third and subsequent visits with Karlene and Curl Bar!

Karlene has been cutting, styling, and let's face it, taming my hair for about 5 years now. We (me AND my hair) would be lost without her. When I first went to see Karlene my hair was growing in a reverse triangle down my back and the front pieces had lost their curl. I had been struggling to find someone who could help me grow out my hair. Now my curls are springy and voluminous and past my shoulders! Karlene always takes the time to chat with you about your hair, how it's feeling, how the last cut has been growing out etc. She doesn't start cutting or styling until she has a clear idea of what you're looking for and how she's going to achieve it. She always has a plan. Karlene makes sure to show you how know how to style your hair before you leave the salon so you look your best every day. She is my go-to for any occasion, including my wedding last year! and Her positive energy and infectious laugh make each trip to the salon a pleasure! I recommend Karlene and Curl Bar 110%. The salon is bright, cheery and conveniently located in downtown TO and a visit to see Karlene is sure to brighten your day and bring you many good hair days in the future!

The Curl Bar Salon works for me on many different levels. Firstly, I LOVE Karlene. She is wonderful, communicative, professional and a hair Educator! I have very tight curls and have been natural for over 20 years yet the knowledge that she imparts about my haircare is invaluable. I love her approach and her ability to explain techniques and new products in an easy to understand manner. Secondly, the salon specializes in naturally curly hair. Surprisingly, It's not easy to find a salon within the GTA where natural hair is given priority or even cared for. Thirldy, I love the salon's modern approach to appointment booking and the staff's adherence to appointment time therefore respecting their client's time! I'm a busy woman and I appreciate that 10:00 am means 10:00 am. After literally bumping into this salon over the summer and trying them out a few times, I can guarantee you that I'm impressed and will continue to frequent their shop. I'm not impressed easily and I applaud Trudi and Karlene in making the salon work. Fantastic job ladies. Keep it up. Tracey Lake

This is best salon I have been to. My hair looks and feels incredible!! I was so excited to walk out of the salon and show off my new hair. Karlene and Trudy made me so welcome and comfortable and really know what they are doing. These are real people working with real hair making people look real. Karlene was so full of valuable information about how to look after my hair and style it. I am so excited to go back to this salon and take my mother with me as well. I have nothing negative to say about this experience and I am so happy I've finally found a place that works for me.

I can not trust anyone with my curls....Karlene was so nice and excited about my hair. She really took the time to listen to my concerns and understand what i really wanted. I have yet to wash and set my hair myself as its only been 1 day.... but i just love the cut. I got some great highlights as well.... She gave me tons of tips for taking care of my curls, trying to get the best volume and how to ensure that they get the moisture they need in order to be able to curl properly. So far so good and i had a good experience. If your hesitant, just give them a call and they will take the take to listen to your concerns, there website is pretty good as well.

I've decided to go natural, but to help with this process I thought wearing weaves would ease with the transition. I found Karlene and I couldn't be happier that I did. Her weave work is top notch. She does a perfect, natural bang and makes her own closure. No one believes I'm wearing a weave. She cuts and conditions my natural hair so when I'm ready to rock my natural it will be strong and ready to go. Thanks Karlene and Curl Bar for your work. I can't speak for everyone but you've helped me feel beautiful and confidence.

I have been natural for about 17 months now I have decided to try out a hair salon that specializes in naturally curly hair. I did my research and found a salon located downtown Toronto called Curl Bar Beauty Salon. The service i chose was a wash and style it was done by a stylist named Karlene Valentine. She was amazing she greeted me, right away offered me water and begun with my consultation. We talked about everything, what products I use, how to maintain my curls and what I should do to keep my hair healthy. The service was amazing I loved every minute of it. She handled my hair with care. and she helped me understand how to take care of my hair properly. I got a twist out and it was absolutely flawless! I will definately be coming back to Curl Bar beauty salon. I am so happy I found a salon in Toronto that specializes in Curly hair in my neck of the woods. Great job.!

Ms Karlene Valentine has given me the best curly girl haircuts EVER. I'm constantly getting compliments about my curls and style - for the past 3 years I've been seeing her! I carry her cards around with me so I can hand them out to the other curly hair ladies who approach me - "who cuts your hair?". My two sisters and my mom swear by this gem too - and so will you!
