We understand and appreciate curls!
The Curly Dry Cut
Whether you are a Wavy, Classic Curly, Tight Coily, or Tight Wavy (aka, Fractal, “Kinky”), we want you to enjoy and embrace your natural texture.
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 it’s size. So, when she started intense curl training, it came as no surprise that respecting natural curl patterns by dry cutting was the cornerstone of the curly cutting world.
Changing the Way We Think of Curls
After an entire generation of Boomers were raised on the idea of “fixing” or “grooming” their curls with a brush, after decades of misdirected beauty marketing/advertising towards curls as “unfinished hair,” after the “flat iron” craze of the early 2000s, and finally, due to a lack of professional industry knowledge on natural curls (curly content not getting taught in hair schools), the massive demographic of curly clients is still treated as a niche group rather than the actual 65%+ of the population that they represent.
We understand why this 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.
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.
Curly Client Stories
If you appreciate and embrace your natural beauty (hair growth patterns, skin tone, features, face shape), you will always look your best and your daily styling routine will be much easier!
This concept has proven true time and time again for every hair type, BUT we see it giving the MOST freedom to our curly guests.
Andrea established THIS simple philosophy as a young stylist and it has led to a loyal following of people confident in both how to style their hair and which styles to choose for an easy grow out experience.
