Stylist: Krista Leavitt

Rating: Salon Rating: 5 Scissors

I've been to several curly stylists and I have learned a lot from most of them! I found Krista just this year. I continue to go to Krista and only Krista all the way from Barrie despite the distance because she is simply the best in the business.  She understands that each head is individual and no one fits a mould. So many stylists have tried to batch me in to a "type" which doesn't work for everyone. Krista also focuses on only curly hair and has a lovely head of natural unprocessed curls herself which is important to me. I have a cut coming up and I'm looking forward to it!

I had been following the curly girl method, but Krista showed me how to do it in the best way for my hair.  She showed me how to bring out the best waves in my hair.  She know so much about the proper care of wavy hair!

Krista is the best in Canada, bar none. I have tried all kinds of stylists in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Barrie (due to moves not choice) but Krista is the only one who consistently cuts and styles my hair absolutely perfectly. And she has STYLE!! 

You can very much tell that Krista loves what she does and is a professional in every way. She is very knowledgeable about how to treat curls and does ONLY curls. She gives you what you want and I haven't thrown her a question she couldn't answer yet. 

I live in Barrie now and when she left, it left a huge hole in Barrie stylists as there are none that come close. To Kingston we shall go!

If I could add more stars to her rating I would.  Krista is simply AMAZING!!!!!!  I had my second cut with her today and I absolutely love my curls.  The first appointment she took her time and made sure I understood the best way to style my hair and then showed me how to do it, so I could do it on my own. My second appointment she tried new products (which I loved and bought), took her time and showed me different technics to style my hair. 

I now love my curls thanks to Krista.

Went for my first deva cut and full hair review and styling lesson with Krista on Saturday.  She is the best.  The cut is amazing.  I learned more than I could possibly absorb which is why she sends you home with an information sheet for your specific hair so you dont have to remember everything she tells you.  She is so thorough and precise.  I really appreciate how much time she took and how detail oriented she is.  You can really tell how much she loves doing curly hair!  I can't wait to see her again and would recommend Krista to anyone that can get in to see her.

I was amazed that there are hairstylists that specialize in curly hair!  I have always been a curly girl, no straightening for me.  I was always frustrated with stylists that couldn't wait to get their hands on my curls to either straighten them or make it so PUFFY and curly that I couldn't wait to rush home to shower and do it myself.  To also have a stylist that herself embraced her own curly hair meant she truly knew the challenges that my curls brought me.  I have said good bye to the triangle shaped hair (heavy on bottom) and hello to a cut that has brought my curls to life.  I knew I had curly hair but I didn't know it could be THIS curly.

Krista is patient, knowledgeable and easy to talk to.  She shares her experience and knowledge at the first appointment and makes herself available to questions along the way as I have learned what is best for my hair.  The cut was methodical and I commented that I felt she was very careful with each curl she cut, considering how to cut and where the curls would fall.  Then the wash and style - so much more than any experience in a salon I have experienced.  I LEARNED what to do by DOING IT!  She didn't just tell me, but she showed me.  I am happy to say that I do my hair and it looks amazing - all because of the time Krista spent explaining how and why along with what products are best.  You won't regret taking the time to get to know Krista - and in turn your own curls.

So happy to have met and spent time with Krista. We had an appointment on New Years eve and it was the best present for 2015 that I could have asked for. She is very passionate about curly hair as am I. I have read and try to follow the curly hair book and while I had a good base, Krista came in to give me the perfect cut and to show me how to take care of my hair. I left with a renewed focus to treat my hair with the respect that it deserves. I recommend Krista to all curly girls but most of all to the young girls who dont like their curls. Krista will make everyone who has curls feel special. That in turn gives confidence and an a will to embrace what can be done with curls. I cannot wait til our next appointment.

I went to krista for the first time over a year ago, and I had a most amazing transformation!  Krista spent so much time with me teaching me and showing me how to really love my curly hair. I didn't know that my hair was even as curly as it was, but krista brought out every little curl that was hiding and I have not looked back since.  It has been a journey , but a very educational one, because krista stays with you, even after that first visit, and she is there to answer questions and give advice along the way, which is so great!!!  Thanks to Krista Leavitt , I love my hair :)

I had my first appointment with Krista today, and it was fantastic. From the moment I walked into the salon, I felt welcomed and I was treated like a friend. Krista took the time to show me all of the techniques she was using on my hair and she personalized her advice to my hair specifically. I am glad I invested in her services, I learned so much about my hair and how to care for it! I didn't know it could be so curly and soft.

I was on the fence about going to see a curly hair specialist because I believed I could get all the information I needed off of the internet. However, I was wrong; Krista gave me an amazing and careful haircut, taught me techniques and recommended products that she knew would work best for me.  I learned so much about my hair, I hadn't even known that my hair was fine or that it was covered in product build-up. 

Krista has so much experience and passion for curls, I would recommend her services to all women with wavy or curly hair! She is so passionate that she took time to travel over the holidays so she could help women in New Brunswick who don't have access to a curly hair specialist!

I am so happy I found Krista - she is the first stylist who ever understood my curls and helped me to embrace them. Along with her warm personality she is absolutely enthusiastic and committed to her work and is constantly upgrading her knowledge through courses and workshops. She takes lots of time to discuss issues, custom cut each individual curl and check and double-check before she's finished. It is a real treat to visit her in her new salon in Barrie, and definitely worth the over two hour drive for me.  I highly recommend her!

I have never had such an amazing experience at a hair salon. I felt %100 comfortable and relaxed. It was the perfect atmosphere for the 1:1 teaching that Krista provides for us curly girls. Krista helped me to love my curls again. I feel beautiful, bouncy, and can't get this smile of my face. Thank you Krista!

Krista is AWESOME! Finally I have found someone who is truly an expert at caring for, styling and cutting curly hair and the results are wonderful. I drove 3 hours to see her and it was worth every kilometre and every penny. From the moment I arrived I had complete trust in her - what a novel experience to feel relaxed and excited in a hair salon. She takes lots of time to understand your particular hair and to explain it to you so you understand how to care for it so that you get the best possible results at home too. The dry, curl-by-curl method of cutting hair makes so much sense. She truly gives you a custom haircut that brings out the very best in your curls. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Krista is beyond fantastic! She understands the needs of us "curly girls" & gives you a haircut that fits you - not a "one size fits all" generic haircut. She makes you feel welcome, she is very knowledgeable & I LOVE the look of her salon. I knew she did it well when my 9 year old son asked how much I paid for the cut & when I told him, his response was "you paid too little because it's awesome". It was a fantastic experience & she will be my "forever hairdresser" from now on - so happy to have found her!
