Being able to service you efficiently is a top priority for me, and doing so will require your participation and commitment, if you are planning to partner with me. I am a wife and a mother to two small children, so New Client appointments are limited and will require you to join my newsletter.
To become a New Client, the first step will be to fill out a consultation form for approval. The form will include questions pertaining to your expectations, hair goals, hair health and regimen. Be prepared to submit recent FRONT and BACK photos of your hair, on a light background, preferably in your best version of a wash and go style. At the end of the submission, your form will be reviewed by me personally. Once confirmed, you will receive an email with further instructions to book your New Client experience. Please take the time to read New Client expectations below to be sure I am the right stylist for you. Lastly, the forms are only open at certain times of the year, so please sign up for my newsletter to be alerted when I am accepting new clients.
At least 30 days leading up to your appointment you will forgo the use of oils, butters, and Eco Styler/Wetliner gel, heavy butters, oils, coconut oil, silicones, petroleum, lanolin, echo gel, wetliner styler gel, Cantu products, Shea moisture products, castor oil, Mielle, etc. These products/ingredients prevent water from entering in and have a huge impact on the outcome of your hair at our appointment.
What do I need to do?
1. Clarify with or Malibu Un doo goo, Kinky Curly Come Clean, once every 6-8 weeks. These are strong cleansers that help to start the process of removing build up from the hair. Use as directed!
2. Shampoo with AG Naturals Balance and Condition with AG Naturals Boost. Shampoo at least 4 times leading up to our appointment. You should be cleansing and conditioning at least every (7-10 days) leading up to appointment.
3. Style your wash and go with Uncle Funky's Curly Magic, or any water soluble approved gel.
The experience from Lov Ley Curls Studio, is a partnership that requires your participation and commitment. Partnering with me will consist of following up after your initial appointment, and maintaining your quarterly cuts every 2-4 months. My goal is to provide you with a solid hair regimen, and offer you the best styling techniques in between visits. So being consistent is key!
We are inclusive to wash and go services only and not designed for those looking for a "quick fix". We use a variety of cutting techniques, best suited for your lifestyle and craft a tailored look, based on your density, hair health, and curl pattern. To see results the process may take a few visits to see results. You must be comfortable wearing your hair in it's original nature state and embrace all the shrinkage that comes with it. If you are not ready for this commitment, we may not be the right fit for you.
A curly cut is designed for those who wear their curly hair 90-100% of the time. Curly hair is made up of different curl patterns that will read completely different when it is in an altered state. Hair that is frequently straightened with heat, will not be compatible with the cutting and styling techniques we use. Our services are not for you, if you're rocking a barber cut, wear a lot of versatile natural hair styles (braids, weaves, wigs), or if you're uncomfortable wearing your hair in it's original, unaltered, state!
Wherever you are in your hair journey, please no negative talk is allowed! Remember this is a journey not a sprint!
