Patience Tinsley


Introducing Ms. Patience Tinsley… Lover of all things curly~ Patience is free spirited and passionate about education. “It’s not enough to just style or treat ones hair, but to provide to lasting knowledge is what makes everything worthwhile.” says Patience.

Patience began pursuing a career in cosmetology after reviving a degree in Public health. She realized that life is more exciting when pursuing a career you love. She began working at an Aveda salon in Greensboro, NC and received in depth training in color and cutting. She began to notice the large amount of curly guests who were unsure of how to care for their tresses…

After 2 years in NC, Patience decided to follow her dreams and move to a larger city. To prepare herself, she took a curly class with Deva Curl so she would be able to educate the curly guests she worked with. God truly has a plan! Just as Patience was in search of a mentor, Southern Curl was in search of a stylist! Robin saw more in Patience than she saw in herself and trained her to hit the floor right away. Patience is truly thankful to be a part of Team Southern Curl and to be able to educate guests on how to care for and embrace their curly hair.
