Curly Cuts

To my textured lovelies… Hey Beautiful!

First time booking with me. No worries! Allow me to walk you through some options on how to book with me for your first service. No curly girl is the exact same as another. Your preferences, lifestyle, and curls are all very unique to you and your cut should be sculpted to best reflect your individual style and beauty.

 

With over 15 years of working with all textures of hair, I combine different techniques and my understanding of hair to give you the best shape custom to you.

Book Your Appointment

Just Sculpting

Book this if you already have a routine and products that you love and just need me to help maintain or create your shape. No shampoo, or style with this service.

The Full Experience

Looking to pamper yourself or would like to try a new routine? Maybe get some new tricks and tips for keeping your curls feeling and looking their best, make sure to book for the cut and full experience. Deep conditioning treatments are optional to add to your service.

What to Expect:

When you arrive we will discuss your short term and long term hair goals. Our initial cut is done on your hair dry. Once we sculpt your initial shape, we will take you to the shampoo bowl and pamper your curls. Finish with styling and refining your shape.

Sleek and Straight

Not a curly girl? No worries. I would love to still have you in my chair! Book this appointment if your tresses are more straight, but still want to have a beautiful cut that you don’t have to spend hours styling!

*Consults are recommended and preferred to ensure the proper timing for your curls. They can be booked virtually or in salon.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sculpting Curls Services at Hair Canvas

What is sculpting?

Simply put, my signature techniques for cutting hair. I have over 15 years and countless hours of continuous education that have allowed me to customize each cut to best fit your needs.

How do I prep for my appointment?

Textured beauties – Because we all know shrinkage is real, I ask that you please come 100% dry and naturally curly. Products are totally fine, but make sure to not have your hair pulled back into a style that would stretch your curls from its natural state. In example: Ponytails, braids, buns, twists, etc.

Sleek and Straight Beauties – For a dry cut only, please come in with your hair shampooed and styled. You can also book for a shampoo and style, with your cut, if you prefer.

Do all cuts come with a shampoo and style?

No. I have a lot of clients that prefer to only get a dry cut. Each service is booked with very specific timing to give you the best experience. If you need a shampoo and style, please make sure to let us know so we can book your appointment accordingly.

I don’t have curly hair. Can you still cut my hair?

Absolutely! My niche is giving you a cut or style that you don’t have to fuss with a whole lot to feel fabulous! My goal is for you to not have to spend hours styling your hair still look like you did!

Can I have products in my hair?

Yes! That is ok. Some of my curly clients can only get their hair to hold a curl or create definition with products. I just ask that you come with hair that I can move through freely without excessive tugging on your hair. If you are only getting a sculpting please come with hair 100% dry to give you the most consistent share for your curls.

Is conditioner the same as a treatment?

No. In the salon treatments are used to pamper, or treat a specific need the hair requires. Treatments are designed to have more intense or concentrated ingredients in them to give more to the hair and require more time. Conditioners are best for general or daily maintenance.

What is the difference between a curly cut and a cut?

You may be wondering why do I separate the type of cuts that I do. My clientele is extremely diverse and each of you deserves a customized experience tailored to you and your hair goals. Each of my services are timed accordingly to give you my best while not needing to keep you sitting longer than you need to.

Your texture, lifestyle, and goals are all different and I like to make sure I give you the best for what you are needing/ wanting to achieve.

Is a trim cheaper than a hair cut?

No. My pricing is not determined by the amount or length of hair that is cut.

*Consults are recommended and preferred to ensure the proper timing for your curls. They can be booked virtually or in salon.
