important stuff

Preparing your curls


(your days of arriving to the salon with a messy knot bun just might be over)

.>> Please perform a clarifying treatment such as an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse or a sulphate free clarifying shampoo (questions on this, please let me know) on the wash day before your appointment.


  • Style your hair as if you were going on a date. Use your favorite styling products for your appointment as we want the best curls possible for the best haircut possible. Do not use any products that would make your curls stiff, sticky or oily.


  • Arrive with BONE dry hair that is styled curly and down (not having been pulled back in any way i.e. ponytails, buns, bobbie pins or poof etc.) ******


  •  ALL TANGLES must be REMOVED during wash day prior to your appointment. This will insure the best haircut possible. There will be an additional charge or you could be asked to reschedule if extensive detangling is needed ******


  • Before and after photos are a part of your first appointment. Please wear an earth toned top that is different than the color of your hair. Also, wear make-up (if you normally wear it)
