What is a Contemporary Curl Cut?
The Contemporary Curl Cut is inspired by the Curly Girl philosophy made popular by DevaCurl founder Lorraine Massey. I am a Deva Advanced Stylist in addition to be Curly Hair Artistrt Trained. The Contemporary Curl Cut incorporates a curl by curl and curl grouping cutting method done on dry defined curls with specialized detox, hydration, and styling methods that address challenges unique to 3b-4c curly, coily and kinky hair.
I ask that you arrive with a fully dry wash & go style because the primary cut is performed first on your styling. Your wash and go should not be older than 2 days. If you wash & gos are challenging for you to do your best to arrive to your appointment with hair that is thoroughly detangled. If the hair is not thoroughly detangled you will be charged an additional $60 detangling fee. The hair then goes through the Curl Magic Experience to detox from plastic/petrolatum/shea/oil buildup and rebuild hydration into the hair. A refining cut and styling lesson happens once you're fully dry.
What if I don't know how to do a wash and go?
Try your best! If you're unable to do a wash and go I need for you to arrive to the salon with your hair completed detangled and free of oil. If you have used oil within the last 14 days I ask that you detox your hair 14 days prior to your appointment.
Is my hair ready for a Contemporary Curl Cut?
If you have waves, curls, kinks, or coils you need an Contemporary Curl Cut! This cut is intended for hair that is fully natural that you intend to wear curly 90-100% of the time. It is also for those seeking a big chop (freedom) of their relaxed/heat damaged strands.
A Contemporary Curl Cut IS NOT for you if you are unsure about wearing your hair in its textured state, you regularly get your hair straightened, or you're currently rocking a fly barber cut. In these instances I may be able to refer you to another stylist more suited to your needs.

They are actually, however in my experience I find that every new client is in need of a hair cut. If you decide that you don't want a hair cut on your first visit you are more than welcome to opt out however it will not change the price of the service.
Sooo, you don't do Silk Press?
I actually offer silk press, and I love to do them! However I do not offer silk presses to my new clients.

This is especially important for those who indulge in lots of oils and butters in their hair care routine.
