Aphrodite's Sanctuary - Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Nadine Bastien

Sep 13, 2012 - Wow.. What a difference in my hair cut, texture and colour. I have found my stylist and will never leave her if I can help it. Finally, I've found a stylist that is an expert in curly hair and Nadine can actually give you a trim/shaping without cutting the length (I've been trying to grow my hair long for years). My hair is now long, shaped beautifully and has a nice rich colour to it. Also the Deva products are changing the texture of my hair and it's now thicker and healthier than before. I can't tell you how many compliments I've been getting on my hair and now 4 of my curly friends are vowing to make their next hair appointment with Nadine. My first appointment with Nadine was great; she examined the style and texture of my hair and decided a dry cut was best. She took the time to teach me a step by step process of getting the best curls from my hair and that was a real revelation. She never pushed products on me, but since I've tried them I really like them, though they are pretty expensive. Kudos to Nadine!

Sep 07, 2012 - Wow. It's finally happened. I've finally found the stylist I will never leave. I tried Nadine about a year ago and have been going to her ever since. Nadine is constantly educating herself on the latest tips, trends, products and science of hair. She is a Devachan-trained stylist (trained by Devachan herself!) and it shows. My first cut was an education. I felt like she had taken off so little, that it couldn't have made a difference (usually, I'm lamenting that the stylist chopped too much off and I'm left with a mushroom style), but she shaped my hair perfectly without taking away the length. She then showed me the step by step routine of how to style it for maximum and beautiful curls (what a revelation!) as well as the best products to use for my hair type. All of my friends have noticed a difference in my hair style and especially texture (looking thicker now with the Deva curl line of products) and three of my curly friends will be switching to Nadine for their next cuts. Kim has been with her for around a year now too and she's also terrific. She consulted with me on my colour and gave me a trim when Nadine was on mat leave and did a great job. If I could give one constructive criticism to them, it would be to take down the 'before and after' photos on the website. The lighting and 'models' (I'm one of them) don't do their work justice. Taking the pictures in the chair, just after the cut when hair might still be a bit damp and not fluffed out, makes the website look a bit amateur. And they don't need the pics. I found them by their reviews alone and actually despite the 'before and after' photos. FYI, the salon has moved up to Yonge and St. Clair.
