Put very simply, I have an absolute passion and love for curly hair – having the opportunity to bring out the awesome beauty of the huge range of curly hair styles and types I have worked with, continuously excites me. The feeling of seeing someone walk into the salon, requiring a change or a freshen up of their curly hair style and watching their excitement grow as I bring their curls to life, is something I will never tire of seeing.
Once I had experienced working with the diverse and unique nature of curly hair, I knew I wanted to devote myself solely to the curly world. I was very aware of the very different needs of curly hair and the problems that can result if it is treated the same as non-curly hair. I subsequently trained at the world renowned DevaCurl Hair Academy in New York and LA , to become an Advanced DevaCurl Specialist myself. Working with curly hair is a specialist thing, which is why when someone books an appointment with me I am the only one who will work with their hair throughout the appointment.
The aim of this site is for all you girls with curls to be able to find out more about how to get the best cut – and reclaim what’s naturally you. I was shocked at the lack of help out there for my fellow curlies and how little most hairdressers know about how to cut, shape and look after our hair. It is now my mission to spread the word that having a head of curls is not something to be ‘managed’ or ‘controlled’, but embraced and celebrated!
Every appointment will be bespoke to your individual curls. I will welcome you to our space with refreshments and healthy snacks whilst we take you through your consultation. To show off your curls I will take before and after photos.
Then I begin the exciting task of bringing out your curls. From my extensive training, my approach is to dry cut the hair to allow the different curl patterns to sit as they naturally would.
To moisturise, and add definition and shine back to the curls I then treat the hair at our basins with a moisturising treatment and use specialist curly techniques to handle the curls. I am a proud Bouclème salon. This London range of products has been developed for curly hair and delivers great results across curly clients. I particularly love that Bouclème is a natural range.
So I don’t undo all the good work in getting your curls looking defined and healthy, I use Zimple biodegradable towels which help to smooth the hair cuticle and don’t over absorb any water from your hair. For your comfort during drying I use reclining chairs whilst diffusing your curls.
Throughout your appointment I will take you through everything I am doing at every stage and share hints and tips for achieving amazing curls yourself. I know that it is easy to feel overwhelmed with information though, so don’t worry as I provide you with a handy step by step guide for you to take away.
