We were recognized in the blog Naturally Curly.com  in an article 18 Best Haircuts for Curly Hair, for our Foundation Cut. Check out all of their curly hair cuts.

WHAT THEY SAID:

Most of us grew up traumatized by bad salon experiences and stylists who made us feel like our natural texture was inherently wrong. And we know just how challenging it can be to find haircut inspiration that features real, natural curls. Luckily, there is a growing number of curly hair specialists today who have fully embraced the beauty and versatility of curls – and are teaching others how to do the same. Here are 18 haircuts by top stylists in the industry, featuring real curls of varying lengths, shapes, sizes and styles.

WHAT WE SAID:

Stylist: Robin Sjobolm, owner of Southern Curl salon, Curly Hair Artistry’s Curly Artist of 2015 and one of the Refinery29’s top 15 curly hair artists

Robin: This is Candace, a client of mine. I call this cut a “Foundation Cut” which is a curl by curl cutting method I developed based on DevaCurl dry cutting training principals. I call it a foundation cut because the cut is built from the foundation up. Each curl is trimmed and shaped so that it does not sit on the section below it, which gives the cut a beautiful silhouette.

Devri 11122015Special Guest Blog Post by Robin Sjoblom of in Smyrna, Georgia shares her curl expertise!

If you have curly hair, you may be searching for the right products, combination of products or the just the right amount of products to create curls you love.

In our salon, we refer to the discovery of Innersense Organic Beauty inner-mixtures as our very own Southern Curl Trifecta.  Although we use more than three Innersense Organic Beauty products in this protocol, it’s really three key products we call the Southern Curl Trifecta to achieve frizz free and defined curls:

1.  Start with  as a co-wash (conditioner wash). Use about a quarter-to-half dollar in sections at scalp. Add warm water to help emulsify the conditioner so it moves around scalp. Rinse thoroughly. In our salon, we recommend this process one or two times a month.

“So many of my curly women have curly hair boyfriends or curly hair husbands,” Sjoblom says of the recent boom in men growing to embrace their texture. “It is so great to see men trying out women’s curly products in the shower, only to discover how much better their curls look. Men like what their women are using.

For a lot of guys, simple is the way to go.” Here are here simple rules of thumb to get the curly male in your life to love his god-given curls.

The First Thing You Should Do for your Curly Clients!

olaplex articleHi everyone! This pre-qualifying service ensures that your appointment is customized for what your Curls need and a great partner to this is to pretreat the hair with Olaplex before anything else. This way, the curls can begin their journey to health and healing before coming in to see the stylist– which will allow the stylist to see the curls in their healthiest state. For some transitioning Natural clients, they may be able to save a lot more length because the damaged bonds will have been restored… which means avoiding the dreaded “BIG CHOP” in many cases.
