Ready for gorgeous curls?
I love helping women embrace and enjoy their curls! Whether you have naturally curly, wavy, or coily hair, I have a solution for you – and it all begins with a solid understanding of how to style and care for your curls.
Which is why I created The Cultivaed Curl Academy online education.
- The Confident Curlista: Comprehensive Curl Care Course
(includes detox, hydration, maintenance, curl styling technique, drying.. etc. its comprehensive!)
My mission always goes beyond the cut. In these workshops, I explain all the steps for getting the most out of your curls, easy-to-follow instructions so you can successfully care for your curls at home. And believe when I say from experience, it is possible!
Once you've completed the Confident Curlista course I welcome you to schedule your new client Curl Dry Shaping Cut.
So if you’re ready to embrace your curls, click now to check out the options for new clients.
Before your first appointment please avoid ALL butters, oils and silicones for 30days. You will need to start the elimination process for our detox.
At the moment, Sacramento County is on shelter in place again (as of 7/13/2020) and salons are closed. I will be rescheduling cancelled clients from the covid19 "quarantine" as soon as we are allowed to open again.
Moving forward, I will open my schedule one month at a time.
If you are a new client and would like to get on my list, please join at the bottom of this page. New clients are required to complete my Confident Curlista online course before scheduling. See the link at the top of the page. I look forward to meeting you soon!
Don’t wait until your hair feels wild and in need of serious pruning.
It's easy for curlies to let their hair grow out a little longer between cuts, but don't wait until it's driving you crazy to book an appointment with me, because I book out months in advance with repeat clients. So reserve your appointment now and plan ahead for great hair!
As a new client, I do require you complete my hair questionnaire and share some current photos of your hair before I will approve your appointment.
The questionnaire is located on my booking site and will be required during the booking process upon making a reservation. This helps me understand the scope of work needed and make a plan based on your hair type and hair goals. I also require a current photo of your hair and 1-2 inspiration photos so I can see where you are and where you would like to go.

Your First Visit
Once you've completed the online Confident Curlista workshop I welcome you into my salon studio.
I take into consideration the fullness, height, and shape of your curl pattern and head shape as we make a plan for your individual style. Our initial consultation lasts about 10-15 minutes as we discuss your hair and plan out your longterm goals.
Cutting Your Hair
I use a variety of methods when cutting hair--almost always dry.
I will not cut your hair unless you have a solid idea of what you want the outcome to be. From that vantage point I am happy to advise you on achievability based on your density, texture and growth patterns. So, please come prepared.
Crafting Your Style
When you entrust me with the care of your hair, I step into the role as your guide – not your dictator. Meaning I never want to assess you and your hair and offer up my preference for how it should be styled. I want to hear your opinion, your lifestyle, and your common issues or concerns to help you achieve the perfect style for you.
Quit struggling with your hair.
Once you've completed the Confident Curlista Course, I'm happy to invite you to schedule an appointment with me, pop onto a virtual coaching sessions or join a group coaching program to connect with you and make sure you are comfortable with the process.
In coaching sessions I help you perfect your technique. In my group coaching programs, You can learn with a group of people on the same path as you... sometimes it is helpful to see someone else's journey to fully understand what you are experiencing... ***Group Programs coming soon.
