 Don't let your hair control you! Take control of your hair! Wavy, curly or super curly see what a Curly cut  can do for you!

We want you to love your curls!

 This revolutionary technique was designed for all natural textures, from wavy to super curly. Hair is sculpted curl-by-curl, while dry, in it's natural state. This service includes a transformation service.

**Prepare your hair for your  service by showing up at the salon with clean, dry, detangled hair avoiding ponytail holders and clips. ​


 Curl Transformation: From wavy to super curly, the beauty of this service is the customized design for every client. The luxurious process begins with a healthy botanical cleanse and condition, followed by a styling and coaching session for at home curl care.
