WHAT IS THE CUT ME CURLY SERVICE AND WHY IS IT DIFFERENT FROM A NORMAL CUT?
A Curly Cut is a specialized technique for cutting curly hair. Because curls have a mind of their own, they behave differently when they are wet than when they are dry. As such, a Curly Cut is a dry cut that allows me to accurately assess the spring in your curls and how it affects the shape of the cut. This will leave you with a result that has been customized to YOUR curls, length, density and texture and a cut that is as unique as you are!
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH THE CUT ME CURLY SERVICE?
We will always start with a consultation so we can be sure we're staring the process on the same page. I like to allow more time for new clients so I can hear and understand your concerns and challenges. Because a Curly Cut is a dry cut, we'll launch straight into the cut. Once it's in good shape, we'll wash it using curly-friendly products -- these products are formulated especially for curls and waves -- and then we'll dry it. Once it's dry, we'll look at your cut again to make sure you leave the salon looking amazing. During the service we'll discuss products, routine, techniques and troubleshooting to make sure you're confident in recreating your look at home. A Curly Cut service will last 1.5 to 2 hours.
HOW LONG DO I GO BETWEEN CURLY CUTS?
Curly cut clients usually find they can go longer between visits. Clients can plan on getting their hair cut 2-4 times a year depending on how they like to wear their hair and how fast their hair grows.
WHAT IS THE COLOR ME CURLY AND WHY IS IT GOOD FOR CURLY HAIR?
This curly highlighting/lowlighting technique, also known as Pintura, is specifically designed for curly hair. It is done curl by curl, so it will give your curls some dimension and pop, while keeping it natural looking. This look typically works best on curly to super curly hair vs wavy hair. It is also done in a way to be gentle on your delicate curls that are more susceptible to damage than straight hair, This will deliver a look that's as one-of-a-kind as you are!
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH THE COLOR ME CURLY SERVICE?
Included in the Color Me Curly service, a consultation to ensure we are on the same page. Then we will either apply lowlight or highlight to curls determined during the consultation. We will also add a bond treatment to protect those delicate curls if lightening is involved. And then we will finish your look with a gloss to finish your look to perfection! If there is time after coloring I will also dry your curls.
