Please arrive 10 minutes early for your appointment with a fresh clarified, detangled and dry, wash and go style. Late appointments may need to be canceled or rescheduled at the stylist's discretion. Clients that arrive with hair that is not to these preparations may incur additional detangling fees or sometimes may need to be canceled or rescheduled. We want you to have the best experience and to ensure that we have the time to give your hair what it needs. Please call us before your appointment if you have additional questions on preparing your hair.
A hair detox (or hair clarifying) is highly recommended at least 2 weeks prior to your scheduled appointment if you are using products that are heavy laden with butters, oils (coconut oil), or plastics. Hair that has Cantu, Shea Moisture, Ecostyler gel, or similar brands in it may require an upcharge to clarify at the time of your appointment. It is vital to clarify your hair prior to your appointment if you are using those products. Use a curly hair friendly sulfate-free clarifying cleanser like DevaCurl® Build Up Buster to help you detox your hair to get the best results from your curl education.
