How to prepare for your appointment
All clients must arrive at the salon with hair that is 100% dry, within one day of being washed and styled with products to enhance the curl. We want to see how you achieve your best curls with your current products and methods. Please do not use or wear bobby pins, ponytails, headbands, rubber bands, hats, clips or anything else that will leave dents, marks or change your curl pattern in any way. Excessive snarls, product buildup or hair that has been styled that alters or stretches out the curl pattern may require an additional pre-service or re-booked for a later appointment.
Two weeks prior to your appointment, we ask that you stop using any products with silicones, butters or oils in them (including coconut oil). Please do not use anything that contains silicones, petroleum, lanolin, butters and/or oils. For example Shea Moisture, Cantu, Camille Rose, Pantene, As I Am (really too many to list them all). If you use these types of products, please perform a detox 3-4 times at home to remove the buildup that is likely on your hair. These products tend to excessively coat the hair and mask your curls’ spring factor. We recommend Mailbu Un-Do-Goo or Deva Build-Up Buster as clarifiers. We sell them in salon or you can call to order if you would like.

Please note: There are two cats (Helix and Xiao) and two dogs (Daxton and Fifi) on the premises at all times. All breeds are meant to be as hypoallergenic as possible as our team has allergies too! The animals are very friendly and have been raised in a salon environment, however if you have an aversion to animals please let us know and we will place them behind closed doors during your appointment time.
