We’re announcing our new 2021 Curl Stylist Panel starting today! First up, we’d like to welcome Heather Barclay!

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!

I’m not sure who needs to hear this today… ​​​​​​​​

I’ve been working on the curl club for almost a year. Many of my clients ask for an easier way to access all things curly once they are home. Here is your library; no more combing the internet just to end up in the wrong rabbit hole.

I’ve studied and researched curls for over 16 years; now I’ve started a community where we can share and build information we can trust.

If you find your curls a challenge there may be something “special” going on.

It’s common knowledge that there can be different curl patterns on one head. (For example; tighter curls around the face and waves on the back of the neck) this becomes frustrating and a challenge. However curl specialist are trained to manage these differences.

Density refers to how THICK your “ponytail” is (how much hair is on your head) it is as common to have mixed density.

You see here the whole perimeter (from temple to temple along the back of her neck is LOW density) but the top is thick and full. If layered wrong it reveals baby fine hair and she gets a hat of fluff.

If you notice you have tricky textures in your hair too. Seek a specialist that can navigate through these challenges appropriately.

That Texas heat is coming… we all know it. ​​​​​​​​
Are you daydreaming about getting that hair off of your neck? ​​​​​​​​
Southern Folks know what I’m talking about. 😄​​​​​​​​
There are so many modern curly bobs to transition to this time of year. ​​​​​​​​

Some days I get the opportunity to meet veteran Curl Friends. It’s fun to meet people already a big part of the Curl Revolution. ​​​​​​​​
Some just need a review or validation they have got their routine right. Or better yet can I refine it and make it any easier with better results. ​​​​​​​​
Here I cut length and gave a flowing shape for the haircut (that will help right away) ​​​​​​​​
You will notice subtle frizz (tangling) throughout the photo on the left. She worked SO HARD on her hair and still got this result. All the steps, with water 💦 over and over. Little to no definition. If you pick it up it was like a web 🕸 (plus dreadlocks on the back after 2-3days). Do you know the problem?! ​​​​​​​​
Wrong products. Residue. 🚧No heavy butters, oils, or silicone. 🚧​​​​​​​​
You can do CGM all day long and still end up with a mess if your products aren’t water soluble. ​​​​​​​​
Photo on the right: styled with water soluble products in half the steps she was doing and got better results.​​​​​​​​

Has your shag been a blast but you’re over it? It’s summer and you are ready for a change? ​​​​​​​​
Modern curly bobs put you right in the game with a quick change. The longer layers give you a different vibe instantly with the shorter flirty length. ​​​​​​​​
Are you ready for a change? , #Rëzolites #curlmagazine

Wavy girls are often told they don’t “qualify” as curly. ​​​​​​​​
What is this madness (prejudice) I keep hearing?!? 😫🫣🤯​​​​​​​​
Why do people stay so negative with each other, and feel they need to be part of some exclusive club? It’s so ridiculous. I hate this catty attitude 😼​​​​​​​​
TRUTH BOMB 💣 They are “mean girls”​​​​​​​​
If you have bend in your hair naturally you qualify, and will benefit from the curly routine. You have your own special texture waiting to be discovered. With the correct haircut, products and application you will have gorgeous waves to show off. ​​​​​​​​

Curly cuts are blended cuts, focusing on silhouette and balance. When you get your hair done by a specialist haircuts last much longer. ​​​​​​​​
4 to 6 months is common lifespan. Once you have a shape that functions well and curls easily you can get back to enjoying life. 😉​​​​​​​​
See you next season. , #Rëzolites #curlmagazine

Do you find yourself stressed and overwhelmed these days? ​​​​​​​​
It’s an interesting perspective to realize we are investing our energy in the wrong direction 🤔​​​​​​​​
Deep food for thought. ​​​​​​​​

Bangs or no bangs? ​​​​​​​​
Are you on the fence? Here is the good news; you can have both. ​​​​​​​​
Curly bangs frame the face and can be worn naturally. On the days you aren’t in the mood or as they grow longer style your hair to the side and they create volume on the top. ​​​​​​​​
Bang trims are always complimentary so they stay fresh. , #Rëzolites #curlmagazine

Many clients come to see me with LOTS of years of curl experience. I love sharing my day with my curl friends. ​​​​​​​​
These are my moments to discuss advanced styling techniques and versatility in product options. ​​​​​​​​
There is not a “one size fits all” situation. Different climate, or how long you want your curls to last (how many days between washing) can determine routine. ​​​​​​​​
We can discuss a very “set” look or a fuller soft look. Both require a different approach. ​​​​​​​​
If you are an established client and you want to take a deep dive. Book a full appointment and we can play with options for your style out. It’s always fun to learn more about your curls. ​​​​​​​​

Do you like your highlights to look natural? Are you tired of the bold zebra 🦓 stripes that damage your curls? ​​​​​​​​
There is a way to get lighter without hard lines of demarcation. Easy grow out, longevity and softness. ​​​​​​​​
Curl specialist understand more than cutting curls, we study color too. Make sure you are trusting your color to someone that won’t damage your curls. It is worth it. ​​​​​​​​
