How long should I plan for my first visit?
2-3.5 hours. This is not your normal hair appointment. Please do not schedule appointments when in a time crunch or during a business call.
I am overwhelmed by what I have learned online! Is curly hair really that complicated?
No! I simplify the complicated online world of curly hair and turn it into straight forward facts. I teach a very simple, health based approach to curls and will generally only use one to two styling products at your first visit.
How Often Do I Need to get a Cut?
Most cuts can be maintained every 6 months. Some shapes require more maintenance, but most fall around the 4-6 month mark.
Can I Straighten a Curly Cut?
Absolutely! If your hair is healthy then change it up occasionally. There are exceptions to this but most curly cuts can be straightened.
My Hair is so Thick. Can You Thin it?
I refrain from using tools like razors or thinning shears to thin out curly hair, as they compromise the curl structure, resulting in unmanageable frizz. Our specialized layering techniques are designed to remove weight strategically, enhancing your curls' natural shape and definition.
Will I be able to duplicate the salon look at home?
This question is addressed in Jody's reviews. She aims for every guest to recreate the salon look at home, emphasizing her commitment to education.
Are there specific haircut techniques for different curl types?
No, Jody uses techniques and methods from her extensive trainings to create a customized cut to suit each individual’s needs.
I typically don’t like layers. Do curly cuts have layers?
Yes. Every curly cut has layers. However, curly specialists layer it completely differently. Curly layers will eliminate weight and add shape, volume, and movement. Unlike traditional layers, you won’t see steps or end up with a heavy top layer or shelf. Layers will also eliminate the dreaded triangle look to help it grow out beautifully, which is part of the reason curly cuts last longer between cuts.
Do I have to use the products you sell?
I advocate for clean beauty. There are numerous product brands available. I guide you on selecting high-quality options that will heal your hair, instead of "fix" 'it.
I want my hair to be healthy. Does that mean I can’t use heat or color my hair?
Applying heat to healthy hair is perfectly fine. Color is also fine, provided you collaborate with a colorist committed to preserving your hair’s integrity.
What if I don’t have the same tools (clips, dryer/diffuser, brush)
The hair tools used in each session aren’t pricey. Jody can provide options tailored to various budgets.
Does it cost the same price for men and children?
All pricing is gender neutral. The cost is the same for everyone. The same amount of time and teaching goes into every appointment.
Why does a curly cut cost more than a regular haircut?
This is not your normal hair appointment. Time: Curly hair takes more time, 2-3.5 hours for your first visit and 90 minutes for a a returning guest. Specialized training: stylists that specialize in curly hair have traveled nationwide to multiple classes for extensive and costly training in curly hair. Demand: There is a growing demand for curly specialists, and the pricing can reflect the expertise and experience of the specialist.
