We understand and appreciate curls!
The Curly Dry Cut
What are you?
- Classic Curly
- Tight Coily
- Tight Wavy (think fractal shapes, aka “Kinky Curly”)
Whether wavy, curly, or coily, we want you to enjoy and embrace the natural texture of your hair. We do so by respecting the curl pattern and cutting the hair dry, where it falls.
So, regardless of the variety of curl patterns on your head, your haircut will fall nicely and complement your features.
Before specializing in curls, Parlour owner Andrea Bonawitz, found herself drawn to dry cutting techniques on straight, wavy, and curly hair alike. It enabled her to see hair in its true growth pattern, without the deceiving weight of water holding it down and condensing its size. So, when she started to get into intense curl training, it came as no surprise that dry cutting was the cornerstone of the curly cutting world.
Changing the Way We Think of Curls
An entire generation of Boomers were raised on the idea of grooming curls with a brush. Decades of misdirected beauty advertising regarded curls as “unfinished hair" and taught our children that they must "fix" their curls to look professional. After the “flat iron” craze of the early 2000s, it became obvious that there was a lack of professional industry knowledge on natural curls.
Basically, curly content was not getting taught in hair schools and wasn't easily available to professionals. But, times are changing. Believe it or not, 65% or more of the population has curls. A new niche has evolved in the industry, the curly girl. She is hungry for support and using her online resources to get it. She is changing the way we think of curls.
At Parlour, we understand why history and social attitude towards curls has lead to confusion and a host of bad hair experiences!! We completely understand why there might be just a TAD bit of emotional baggage for our curly clients as you attempt to navigate and research this topic on your own. That’s why we are here to help. Welcome to your new home.
Wherever you are in your curl journey,
We invite you to meet us for a consult and help us improve the health of your curls.
