Kelly is (almost) Back!

As many of you know, Kelly had her shoulder operated on in March.   It’s a LONG recovery process but she’s getting GLOWING reports from her Physical Therapist and Doctor.

Kelly should be returning to the chair full time in July, but if you stop into the salon in June you may catch a glimpse of her with scissors in hand!

Once again, we appreciate everyone who’s been willing to move appointments and/or put their trust in Janaya while Kelly recovers.  A huge round of applause to Danielle, our chaos…ahem…Salon Manager who has kept the appointment book in check in this crazy time, and has even offered to hold Janaya’s sandwich while she cuts hair (…we’re only partly kidding here.   A girl’s gotta have her snacks in order to cut hair with enough energy!)

We are proud to have the best curl team in Western PA, and we know that goes hand in hand with the best curl-clients!    Thank you to the Kindred Curl Team, including both staff and clients. We love you!

You know that we love education…but education doesn’t always look like a conference, class or webinar….education can happen any day at Kindred Curl!  Because Kelly stepped away to heal after surgery, Danielle and Janaya have had to learn portions of each others job to continue to deliver world class service to our clients.  Essentially, they’ve had to rotate jobs and cross train…all without batting an eyelash and bringing exceptional service to our guests!

Job rotation is not just a tool for employee development, but a tool for increasing organizational performance through innovation and collaboration.  

What does all this mean for you, our curly-clients and fans?  It means that you’ve got a more well-rounded Kindred Curl Team, and when Kelly comes back full time…they will be an even greater force to be reckoned with!

Client of the Month: Violeta

Violeta Garcia-Mendoza showing off her gorgeous waves!

“I ‘social media stalked’ Kindred Curl for a while before getting up the courage to call. Before that, I’d had so many meh-to-awful cuts that I’d been cutting my hair myself for 4 years. I didn’t have any sense of confidence in my curls, and I had been straightening (aka damaging) them for years too. But minutes into my first visit, Danielle, Janaya, Kelly and (of course) Dax and Helix put me immediately at ease. There is something so special about Kindred Curl’s community that makes it comfortable and fun for introverts (like me) and extroverts alike. I really appreciate how Kelly and Janaya combine technique and art in what they do. My hair has never been healthier or curlier, and it’s so incredible to have something I felt self-conscious about become one of my favorite features. I can’t wait to see how my hair continues to evolve!”

Violeta’s Tip: “When styling with gel, the praying hands method encourages my s’waves more than the rake and shake method. I get clumpier, juicier curls.”


Product of the Month

In honor of Janaya receiving her Deva Inspired Stylist Status last month, (and the kiddos being “set free” from school!) we are celebrating by offering YOU a 20% discount on DevaCurl Set it Free Moisture Lock Finishing Spray for the entire month of June!

Original:  $22

Sale Price for June: $17.60

If you want to seal in moisture, fight frizz and add shine to your curls after styling, this is just what you need!  The lightweight, nourishing formula, made with olive oil and beeswax, zaps frizz and brings back softness. Set it Free blasts curls with essential moisture and adds bounce and shine.  Bright and energetic, Set it Free captures the freshness of Lemon & Lime Zest.


New to Set it Free?  Try it these Ways:

  • To seal in moisture after styling, spray all over your curls.
  • Use as needed between wash days to tame frizz and rehydrate.  (2nd/3rd day refresh!)
  • Spritz into your hand first and then scrunch into hair for a more even and lighter application.
  • Try cocktailing it with gel for extra hydration and soft, touchable hold.

We hope your month of June has a very “set it free” vibe!  Join us in singing “Set it Free”, our product of the month theme-song.  See you in July!
