Partnering with Leyla
We are an Approval Based Salon meaning you must be approved as a New Client prior to booking services with us. We require in person consultations as the first step in the approval process.
We have stopped taking New Client inquiries forms from our waitlist. Being added to the waitlist doesn't guarantee acceptance as a New Client. Please add your name to the Waitlist, and subscribe to our Newsletter to be alerted when we may be accepting new clients for our in person consultation and approval process.
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 3-4 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 progress it may take a few visits to see results. Please have realistic expectations. 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 80-100% 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 your hair is in barbered 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!
