Operating as usual

This is a curly strand magnified x 50. This is a coconut oil user. Note the build up.

Let’s discuss coconut oil. It is a hot topic in the curly world. Is it good? Is it bad for my hair? I realize dehydration is an epidemic with curly hair and common sense tells us that coconut oil is so healing for the body it MUST do miracles for the hair.

Let’s discuss: Curly hair is THIRSTY when it is dehydrated. It is craving WATER. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature. When we slather this into our strands it creates SERIOUS barriers blocking water 💦 from getting into the strands. This causes worse dehydration and damage, used extensively it can calcify to the hair and become impossible to “clarify” out.

Water soluble products are key to health curls.

Wondering now what your hair looks like under a microscope?! 🤭

Proud to be a part of the Curl Magazine Family.

We’re announcing our new 2021 Curl Stylist Panel starting today! First up, we’d like to welcome Heather Barclay! Heather, the owner of Orange Salon in Austin, Texas, has been elbow-deep in cutting curls since 2007, so she knows what’s real and what’s hype. She also has a special interest in scalp heath, especially as it pertains to hair loss. When she’s not at work, Heather runs a full working farm with more than 1,000 animals! We’re thrilled to have Heather on board for the coming year — please give her a warm welcome and keep your eyes peeled for another new panelist announcement tomorrow!

Vivids are still a lot of fun for me. It has been a very busy holiday season this year and it was a blast to end on a high note. I will be out of the salon taking a much needed rest until Dec 30th. I’m looking forward to getting my hands in lots of beautiful hair very soon. Please feel free to continue to book online @ Orangesalon.net there are appointments available. Happy Holidays everyone. #vividhaircolor #vividhair #pink #pinkhair #hair #matrix #pravanavivids #neon #neonhair

The right haircut can often tame your texture. As you can see in the before photos we are struggling with 3+ different curl patterns. Blending is next to impossible. Super curly around the face and only barely wavy underneath. Once a proper shape is introduced you notice the flow of the curls completely changes. There is absolutely a difference when you trust your curls to a certified specialist. If you are still on the fence whether you should splurge on yourself and try a “curly cut”.... take the leap. #curls #curlyhairstyles #curlyshag #curlspecialist #curlon #beforeandafter #transformation #curlybangs #curlygirlmethod #curlbycurl #curlnection #curlcrush #hair #beauty

Fresh shag layers and a balayage for pops of brightness to polish this look! Just in time for the holiday season. #shaghaircut #shag #hair #newhair #balayage #hairofinstagram #hairoftheday #beauty #layers #atxhairstylist #austintexas #hairstyles #balayagehighlights

A public service announcement about WATER 💦 curls needs lots of it. They are thirsty. If your hair feels dry it is dehydrated, the goal is to infuse WATER into those curls. NOT CREAMS AND OILS. Think about this.... if you were thirsty would drink a glass of water 💧 or a glass of oil? 🤢. A word about coconut 🥥 oil. It is solid at room temperature. 👀 it coats the hair and blocks water from getting into the pores of the hair MAKING IT DRYER. Used long term you will have real trouble getting this buildup off of your strands. Sometimes it can calcify to the hair and it must be cut out. Here is a look at before/after of coconut oil build up and detoxification and hydration with water. VERY HAPPY CURLS. #curlspoppin #curlspecialist #curlyhair #curl #hydration #quitthecoconutoil #nooil #water #curlygirlmethod #curlon

Modern shag haircuts are a beautiful shape for curls. It can take weight out in all the right places. Shags are face framing and full of life allowing volume and lift into your natural texture. #curly #curlyshag #curlyhair #curlyhairstyles #beforeandafter #transformation #curlspecialist #curlbycurl #devacurl #devapro

What a fun transformation! I love when clients are super open to new shapes and the potential of what the natural texture of their hair can do. That’s when the magic happens in the beautiful space between trust and creativity. #curls #curlspecialist #curlyshag #curlon #curlmag #devapro #curlygirlmethod #curlyhair #hair

Shape! That’s what this long time curly client was craving. She has gotten curl certified cuts from over 4 cities across the nation. She asks for shape each time and leaves with shoulder length minimal shape that is the dreaded triangle within 2 months. Today we took her next level REAL SHAPE! “My hair has never looked like this before” zone! Good! That’s the goal. I hope you love it now!

I love a client selfie more than just about anything! It means to me they feel good, pretty, willing to show the world how nice they feel in their skin. That’s EXACTLY why I do this! This lovely lady waited over two years for this look. She is a lifetime perm wearer. However she got a “bad one” and her hair suffer gravely. She and I have been working together to grow out that injury. She has been patient, dealing with fine, limp, straight (naturally) hair she is not accustomed to. Her day finally came and we untrusted her to my colleague @dyemore_texas to do a gorgeous perm. Now with a new shape she is back feeling gorgeous with a new head of curls that look NATURAL. 👏👏👏👏🤝🤝 teamwork did the trick. #curlyhair #curl #curls #perm #curlbycurl™️ #curlon #curlmagazine #gorgeous #hair #newhair

Revamped COVID hair. So many folks took kitchen shears to their own hair during the quarantine months (oops! See left photo, and maybe some drugstore bleach) it’s ok. We were all TRIPPING. highlights, curtain bangs, and some panels of black underneath we were right back on track. #beauty #haircut #hair #covidhaircut #covidhair #highlights #beforeandafter

Lots of layers bring shape for an easier “grow out” transition. Deciding to grow out curls can get painful if the shape is all wrong because the curls will no long play nice as it gets longer. If we can get a functional shape in place, curls get happy and growing becomes a breeze. #curlyhair #curls #curlspecialist #curlygirlmethod #curlon #beforeandafter #transformation #curlygirl #curlygirlmagic #curlbycurl™️ #devacurl

So often curly girls come through my door with a load of terrible history. Bad haircut traumas, struggles with styling, misinformation. Today it seems there is almost TOO much conflicting information on how to care for your curls. This client was doing “everything right” according to blogs, websites etc. yet fighting dreading curls and a level of frizz that made her look like she just stepped out of a convertible. (Left photo) she desperately wanted to keep her length but those curls needed shape and a detox (right side) with the correct instructions, and a beautiful shape she is inspired to change her routine. These photos tell a story; taken only 1 hour apart... #curlyhair #curls #detox #hairdetox #curlspecialist #curlon #curlmagazine #curljourney #curlygirlmethod #curlyhairroutine #curlcrush #curlbycurl #devacurl #devapro #devacurlproducts #curlsforthegirls

Often curly girls complain of hot, big, bushy, heavy hair. Their first request is “please thin my hair”. Thinning curls can turn out tragically. Fractured curls look damaged and frizzy. Instead we cut a beautiful shape that collapsed the bulk. Gorgeous and happy. 🙂 #curlyhair #curlon #curls #curlsforgirls #curlsfordays #curlspecialist #curlbycurl™️ #rawcurls #devacurl #beforeandafter #wavycurly #hair #beauty #haircut #oneshot

Ready to beat the heat? Cut some of that heavy hair off. Removing length while adding shape can feel like a total transformation. Book today!
