Inspired to Learn, Sharing to Inspire
As one of the top curly hair specialist salons in the country, and Pittsburgh’s only woman-owned naturally curly hair salon, continuing education is vital. It keeps us on the cutting edge (pun!) of the latest techniques, enhances our product knowledge, and allows us to learn, create and thrive alongside our peers, who themselves are some of the most talented curl specialists in our industry. Plus, we inspire each other endlessly.
It’s this continuing education that inspires the Kindred Curl Cut, which is uniquely tailored to each and every one of our clients. It also enhances your Kindred Curl Experience, whether you’re here for a restorative treatment, a dry cut or shopping for your favorite curl products. And we get to share this knowledge with you, our Kindred Curl Community, to help you love the curls you’re with, every single day!
As a leader in our industry, and in the community, we’re always looking to better ourselves and our teamwork, and share that knowledge with you.
