Happy Holidays from Team Southern Curl. We wanted to thank everyone for your continued support in our vision to serve and educate the curly girl (and guy).
2017 was a great year for us! Here are just a few highlights…
Our retail center has continued to grow as we added the organic line, Briogeo to our other selective, curl-friendly products like DevaCurl, Innersense Organic Beauty, Uncle Funky’s Daughter, Long Hair Don’t Care, and Terrene Fusions. We also added the fabulous hair accessory for sleeping, working out, and every day cuteness- The Puff Cuff Hair Clamp.
In May we took to the Goat Farm in West Midtown where the movie Katness was shot. We partnered with Innersense Organic Beauty to capture the beautiful photos you now see on our website. Each model was a client of the salon. The two-day photo shoot couldn’t have been perfect. The weather was amazing and the photographs took our breath away. Brent did an awesome job. Robin’s vision came to fruition, and along with the website, the photos live on our salon wall.
Also in May, the fantastic Jodi Joseph joined the team in May of 2017 and has received his skill-certification certificate in Custom Curl Cutting, color & Pintura highlighting, Curl Discoveries & more! Come check Jodi out, you are going to love this talented curl whisperer.
Dontria Walker joined the team in August of 2017. Dontria’s expertise is in Updo’s & Creative Curl Styling. She also has a passion for cutting and Pintura.
Beth Johnson traveled to the prestigious Devachan Academy in August to receive her Level 2 Deva Advanced status. Beth learned advanced curl-by-curl cutting, highlighting (Pintura highlights) and shaping principles following Deva’s approach to customized curl styles. Congratulations to Beth!
