Welcome! And Thanks for choosing me because your about to experience the most awesome cut and hydration method for your wavy, curly or super tight curls.
There are ONLY 5 appointment options for new clients.
Preparing for your First Appointment...
1. Please bring in 3-5 inspiration pictures that are realistic to your natural curls pattern and head shape to your appointment.
2. Please arrive with clean, detangled, dry curls in a wash & go style. If your hair is wet, tangled or in a protective style we may have to reschedule.
If you prefer your hair cut wet And like the Ouidad method it is okay to come with just a leave in & detangled dry curls.
I would still like to see how your curls falls. If you do not know what a Ouidad cut is please refer back to steps 1 and 2.
Pull hair back with ponytails, headbands or clips of any sort. NO butters, oils or heavy gels (ex. Shea Butter/Moisture, Blue Magic, Avocado, Coconut, Castor Oil, Olive Oil, Cantu or Eco Style).
IF YOU HAVE USED these products in the last 6 months please follow the instructions for the 14-day detox before booking an appointment. An additional fee will be added to remove excessive oils & detangling. Why? Good question? Because your hair is loaded with butters, and non-friendly hair products we will spend most of the appointment if not all detoxifying. To efficiently service my clients is very important to me, and will require us to work together. This will make your appointment punctual and enjoyable.
"Why can't these butters and oils be shampooed out the day of my appointment?" In most cases this is not always a one appointment fix.
Doing some homework before your appointment and after will be required.
You will need a clarifying shampoo to jump start removing product build up and residue off your hair. Please use the shampoo at least 2 sessions (once a week for 14 days) before coming to see me. If you are using castor oil please detox for 30 days.
Here are some clarifying shampoos that can be used once a week before your appointment.
Kinky curly Knot today cleanser shampoo, Malibu Undoo Goo or Ouidad Water Works Clarifying.
Suggested Products but not required for styling: Uncle Funky's Curly Magic or The Doux Mousse Def Texture Foam but a non flaky gel or cream will do if you already have under your sink.
