appointment Prep

Here is some information to help you prepare and to ensure you get the MOST from your service, receive an accurate cut, and avoid extra charges!

Please arrive for your appointment 10 minutes early with dry, detangled, clean hair, in its natural state 

(i.e. no coconut or Shea butter, other oils, no stretched or heated styles so we can see your natural curl pattern as well as see any damage clearly - stretched styles include ponytails and buns).

Each appointment will begin with a consultation and are included in all services. Cuts and colors are performed first on dry hair. 

 

All hair services include a No-Poo transformation unless otherwise stated (cleanse, hydrate, natural hair styling, hair care curl education), and we will check the cut/color again once the hair is dry to account for any shrinkage after the cleanse we do in house.

 

Please contact us with any questions before coming to your appointment so we can give you the best experience! 

Excess detangling starts at $15  

 

We thank you for your consideration and we can’t wait to see you.
