Curly Cut 

Embracing your curls is really about embracing yourself. Many of us have fought or tried to "fix" our curls and that has been challenging and counter-productive. If you're on this page you have taken the first step to embracing your natural hair and your beauty within and out. So what exactly is a Curly Cut?

In our salon, it is a cut that caters to your curly hair needs. We use various curly cutting techinqiues and are not commited to any specific methodology. 

What is A Curly Cut?

A Curly Cut is a dry cut that is designed for all types of curls. The idea is that we cut the hair where it lives. It is not a perfectly even cut because we are not cutting for straight hair, we're cutting for your curls.  We customize the principals of our Curly Cut based on the shape of the head and the type of curly you have ( wavy, curly, or super curly ) and what we need to accomplish for your look. We get asked frequently about curl types. Below are images of different curl types. This is a great way to start but does not paint the whole picture of your hair and your curls.

*It is normal to have several types of curl on one head. We're here to help and address yoor curl-needs. 

How Should I come in For My Curly Cut?

When you come in for a for a Curly Cut, it is best to come in with your hair down, dry, and curly. If possible we ask that you come in with little or no product. Second hair day is fine if it is not over-saturated with product. Coming in for your appointment with a lot of product in the hair or all knotted up on top of your head makes it challenging to assess your curls. Also, because we cut dry, we really need to be able to work through your hair as we customize your cut. 

What Happens During A Curl Cut Appointment?

Step 1: Consultation- We will ask about your routine, how long you've been embracing your curls, and what your curl goals are. Then we make a plan together to achieve that goal.

Step 2: The Cut- As stated above, we cut the hair dry. This process can take anywhere from 30-45 minutes depending on the curl type and the style we are going for. 

Step 3: Curly Style/No-Poo Transformation- After we cut your hair, we then style it. We will take you through the steps of the Curly Girl Method and customize a routine based on your curl, hair type, and your lifestyle. We teach you how to treat your curls properly and make a routine that works for you.
