Prepare Your Hair
If receiving any type of Curl Bar Cut your hair must be down, detangled, completely dry and in a styled wash and go no more than two days old. Please wash, condition + thoroughly detangle your hair and style as normal with your usual styling product you use for wash & go's and let it dry completely . (air dry, diffuse or sit under a hooded dryer.) This allows us to see your natural curl pattern and helps us take into account each curl's shrink factor when completing the dry Curl Bar Cut.
Please avoid the use of heavy butters and oils
Please do not come with your hair in a bun, ponytail, twist out, braids, etc.
Avoid putting it up after you style it for your appointment. It can and will negatively impact the cut due to the curls being stretched out.
If hair is not properly prepped it could affect your appointment
If hair is not properly detangled it will result in an additional fee if detangling process exceeds 20 minutes.( 20 minutes or less is typically how long it will take your trained stylist, to thoroughly detangle even with high density hair) The detangling fee will be $10 per every ten minutes.
*Due to the colder months please refrain from wearing bulky clothing that has hoods. This can effect your hair when it comes to cutting and styling, (also we do not want to get you hood wet) If wearing a hoodie to your appointment please just make sure to have a shirt underneath to be worn during the time of your service.
*If Receiving a Curl Bar Wash & Go Service it is still strongly encouraged to still come with a fresh wash and go to accurately assess your hair, see your concerns , see how your hair looks when you style it yourself, and to avoid the detangling fee.
