Finding that special hair stylist who makes all your hair dreams come true is a challenge for any girl but it can be especially difficult for girls with curly or thick hair. Some stylists just don’t have a sense of how to cut and style curly hair and don’t realize that these locks require specialized products (and maybe a little extra TLC, too).
That’s why we love the gals at The Curl Ambassadors (159 Harbord St.). Founded by two ladies who have lived through all the trials and tribulations of having curly hair, (Betty and Caroline) the Ambassadors is located in a space that is Victorian-inspired and couldn’t be cuter. The cozy salon employs a group of stylists who specialize in cutting and styling all types of curly hair.
Not only do the Ambassador’s stylists understand curly hair (“we all know that it’s usually not about the length — it’s about the shape”), the salon also carries an unbelievable inventory of curl-taming products.
Most of the products they carry are nearly impossible to find in Canada. Products such as Mixed Chicks, geared toward women of mixed race is not available anywhere else in Canada. Other great products available at The Curl Ambassadors include Kinky Curly, Uncle Funky’s Daughter and Carol’s Daughter. These products do an amazing job of wrangling curls for women of all ethnicities and they are all-natural and sulphate free.
The salon’s exclusive product list, plus the fact that every customer gets a free tutorial on how to style their new cut, definitely makes the Curl Ambassadors the curly hair experts in our books.
