“Frizz is just a curl waiting to happen” -Lorraine M​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Think about this, you were born with a beautiful curl pattern. If it can look amazing one day and not the next it is likely just hydration level and styling that makes frizz appear and disappear. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
You weren’t cursed with terrible hair, you just need to understand how to get water 💦 in your hair consistently and keep it there. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Curly hair is naturally more dehydrated. So water 💦 is key to your styling, without it frizz will start to show up. ​​​​​​​​

Does your hair TAKE OVER? are you accustomed to getting your hair “thinned out” at the salon? ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
This is a technique saved for straight hair! Razors, thinning shears, and texturizing does not “help” your issue. It only fractures your curl pattern and makes it look frizzy. (Sound familiar) ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Curl specialists are trained how to cut shapes into your curls collapsing unwanted bulk. Keeping your natural beautiful texture intact. (No need to add EXTRA texture) ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Quit avoiding the salon because it always ends up worse. There are people out here that understand your hair. PROMISE 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️​​​​​​​​

Has your hair lost its shape? ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
I know; you never look back here 😎 it’s all good. We are all guilty of snipping a curl here and there to get by until our next haircut. After a long enough time it starts to take on a deep V shape because you can’t reach the back. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Give me a call and let me get you fully reset. I have a better vantage point 😉​​​​​​​​

Wavy hair can be so tricky. Is it straight, just fluffy, maybe you think you just have unfortunate hair. NO YOU DONT. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
It has texture, a curl pattern that is just LOOSER. You are a curly girl too! Wrap your mind around the fact that your hair has a loose “s” pattern for curl instead of a coil. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
It you treat your hair like curly hair, instead of straight hair the true character will reveal itself! Hydration levels are important for you too, clean products in your routine will change the game! ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
The same rules apply to you:​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
1. The correct silhouette (haircut) ​​​​​​​​
2. Correct products (water soluble)​​​​​​​​
3. Correct application ​​​​​​​​

Do your curls get WIDE and heavy. This is a common complaint. The truth is all haircuts do this; it is just way more obvious in curly hair. The dreaded triangle 🔺 takes over and you no longer feel any sort of flattering silhouette to your haircut!!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bringing the weight higher will change everything. This doesn’t always mean super short hair this is just a weight shift to get the bottom heavy feel out of your cut. Curl specialist are trained how to get this flow back into your hair seamlessly. No lumps, bumps or weight lines.

Is it time to get yours adjusted too?

In the heat of the summer curls can take a beating. Manageability becomes key to best curls possible for multiple days.

Shorter cuts make for bouncy happy curls. Consider a shorter cut during the heat of the summer before you decide to “shave your head” in frustration.

Your curls will function; just offer them the proper shape.

There is so much going on here…​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​I often say… we want less WIDE more NARROW. In this case it creates length.

The hair is extremely dehydrated, so once the cut proportions are balanced along with water levels we got a magical transformation that was a subtle shape transition.

This is exactly what everyone dreams of… now we are set to grow.

Sometimes you think you have BIG UNRULY HAIR, and it’s just a case of hyper dehydration. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Majority of clients that come see me don’t have the hydration balance correct in their curls. Once they see the curls appropriately hydrated they are blown away by the change in their hair.

I wonder how your hair would change if the hydration levels were correct?

Let me show you…

Shape matters. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Big hair girls know who you are! It tends to grow out instead of long! Your hair enters the room before you do.

Without a proper cut your hair will look insane. Lumps, bumps, shelves and ledges. At that point your just putting it up (if you can find a ponytail holder strong enough to tie it back 🥴)

Getting the right shape will change your life. You can rock that gorgeous hair everyday all day. THE RIGHT WAY.

See a curl specialist; take care of your most valuable asset 😍 ,

Summer is on the way! Have you let your hair get heavy and long over the winter 🥶 ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Are you daydreaming of an easier bouncy cut these days? ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
We all get attached to the idea of long hair… until we have it. Soon realizing the styling drama vs. return on effort. (It’s just not that fabulous is it) ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
The bouncier, full styles tend to wear better in curls. Happy hair, happy life. ​​​​​​​​

Too much hair can become a styling burden. Yes of course you can get great curly results; but the trade off is time consuming. Sometimes we are in phases of life that require a no-nonsense style. Just because you have curls don’t buy into the belief you have to create a masterpiece each time to rock great hair! ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ,

Curly highlights can really change the game! Textured hair is so unique, no two curly heads are alike. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Don’t you deserve to show off the true texture of your hair with the light reflection custom curly highlights can provide? , , , Rëzolites, , , , , , , , #78704, , , , , , , , , , ,

This client had the shock of her life during our appointment after I taught her how to hydrate her hair appropriately. Her curls were completely different. Bigger loops, fatter clumps, and zero frizz. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Of course a haircut helped to release older dry ends, but optimal hydration levels can really show you the truth about your curly potential.

Detangling your hair can become such a chore when your hair is in hyper-dehydration. The cry for water 💦 makes the hair puffy and unruly. You may believe you were born with hair that is this troublesome; I tend to believe a switch in your routine can provide different results. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Hydrated hair is soft, smoother and manageable. Have you considered that the struggle you are dealing with is your mid understanding of how to get and maintain the right hydration level in your hair?

There is just something about long hair... all girls want it. ME TOO! It feels so famine and sexy. But ask yourself; are you getting your best curls possible? Not always. Quite often there is a trade off for that length we crave. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Releasing length will provide BOUNCE. volume adds a beautiful frame for your face. ​​​​​​​​

Consider... is it time for a change? ​​​​​​​​

Dehydration is the number one issue all curly people suffer with. Water is so important to keep your curls beautiful frizz free and manageable. Water starts to evaporate from the hair within hours, causing the cuticle to lift and look fuzzy. Often the hair will start to seek water from the AIR (partly made of water). ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
The answer is getting the water balance correct in the hair on Wash Day and locking it in place with water soluble gel!!! If done correctly the hydration can last for up to 3 days!! ​​​​​​​​

Did you know there is a difference between HYDRATION and MOISTURE? ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Hydration is the WATER balance in your hair. This is what we are striving for with curly hair. This is when your hair will function at its best with little to no frizz. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Moisture is about softness. You get this from emollients laid on the surface of your strands. Oils and creams make your hair FEEL soft and detangle it easily. However, most of them don’t rinse clean out of the hair and can cause residue. Creating problems over time. ​​​​​​​​

Hydration is the goal​​​​​​​​

CUT IT BACK OFF. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼​​​​​​​​
