PLEASE THOROUGHLY READ THE POLICY BELOW before your appointment.
Due to the beautifully unique and individual nature of curly hair, you may not receive instant results. It's all dependant on the condition of your hair. My methods take time. like a fine wine or an exercise plan: time and effort are essential to achieving that "rare vintage", "beach body" and...your hair goals!
Please come with an open mind and patience. If you follow the recommended methods and allow adequate time, the results you can achieve can be truly amazing!
Online booking with a 50% deposit is required to secure all appointments.
Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult not receiving a service. Additionally, minors are not allowed to accompany on appointments whilst a parent/guardian is receiving a service. Failure to comply with our requests will result in being charged the full cost of your service for that day and asked to reschedule.
Please do not bring guests with you to your appointment. This includes spouses, friends and children. As a freelancer, the salons I work from are not designed to accommodate more people than I have scheduled to attend an appointment. Only parents/guardians accompanying minors receiving services will be permitted to remain in the salon.
Ideally, for your first appointment, In order to fully understand your curls, I recommend you arrive with your hair as near to 'natural' as possible:
Please avoid putting your hair in a high or tight ponytail, plaits or twists prior to your appointment as these types of styles disrupt your curl pattern.
Freshly washed & dried with no product is ideal. This will allow me to properly assess your hair in its natural state without the masking effect products have.*This is not a prerequisite, but extremely helpful to me and beneficial for you and your curls.
At a minimum, I kindly request that you wash your hair at least 7 days before your appointment. Hair that is assessed to be excessively dirty will not allow for a proper assessment and may result in a forfeiture of part of the appointment as we may runover the allocated time. **Kinky textured curls can use the banding method and a light waterbased leave-in conditioner to avoid tangles & matting.
Please avoid using heavy oils and butters such as castor oil and shea butter before your appointment.
