Ready to love your hair?
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 Wash Day Blueprint Online Curl Care Course
(includes detox, hydration, maintenance, curl styling technique, drying.. etc. it is 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 have completed the online course and practiced your technique, you will get access to schedule either a Dry Shaping Cut (for those of you who feel very confident in your routine) or a Full Service Cut (where we can review the entire process and see what area you need assistance)
You are welcome to enroll in the program at any time to get a jump start in your curl care. 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 my schedule fills up VERY quickly!
As a new client, I do require you complete my online curl care course "The Wash Day Blueprint" at least one month prior to scheduling your first appointment with me.
Pre "Covid", I would welcome new clients into the salon with a 2 part New Client service series. The first part was a hair detox, treatment session, hydration and product application lessons, and detailed instructions on how to continue to hydrate and repair your hair for another 4-6 weeks.
At our 2nd appointment (4-6 weeks later) I would ask you to arrive with your own styling (based on the previous lesson) and finally Cut your hair!. POST "Covid" I have moved that whole first session to an online course where YOU do the work with guided videos and a community of curl-friends to lean on. The course includes a "kit" of products to start off your journey and treatments to help get you there. (the same products and treatments I used to use in that first appointment!) This way you will be better prepared to come in for your cut.

Your First Visit
Once you've completed the online Wash Day Blueprint course, I welcome you into my salon studio.
I take into consideration the fullness, height, density, 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 an idea of what you want or feel comfortable with what we have discussed. 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 right shape for you.
Quit struggling with your hair.
Once you've completed the Wash Day Blueprint online curl care course, I'm happy to invite you to schedule an appointment with me.
Over the next month or two, you will be perfecting your technique in preparation for your appointment. You can learn with a community 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...
