FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where is The Curl Society Located?

What is a Contemporary Curl Cut?
The Contemporary Curl Cut is inspired by all the training and continuing education I've invested in. I have coupled that with my behind the chair experience to give clients wishing to have their hair cut in it's natural state the opportunity to do so. All cutting is done on dry curls.
I ask that you arrive in hair that has been cleansed, detangled and styled in the last 7 days. Hair that is not thoroughly detangled 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 in hair that has bee cleansed and conditioned in the last 7 days. If you have used oils, butters or Eco Styler Gel/Wetline Gel in the last 6 months I ask that you detox at least 14 days prior to your appointment. Instructions for detoxing can be found on the booking page.
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.
