Let me say from the start: I am NOT new to proper curl care. I've been practicing it for well over a decade and have had several Deva cuts at curly-only salons. That said, it didn't get offended by the introductory price some seem to find so shocking and shameful. I don't expect a professional photographer to give me a discount because I already know how to shoot (I am a former professional myself). Just because I claim to have a good curly education, the salon can't possibly know WHAT I've learned been taught and therefore they can't fully control the outcome. By giving you there lesson and their evaluation, they are taking control of what they will be held responsible for: Our happiness with our cuts. Imagine spending your time and knowledge cutting someone's hair, who claims to know what they're doing, when in reality they get home, wash a few times, and hate it because they can't duplicate what the salon did? Then the salon is left with an unhappy client when it's not even their fault. I value their education, their experience, and their expertise. Period. They are worth it at Southern Curl! Jodi did a fabulous job listening to what my hair goals were, evaluating my hair, and cutting and editing to get me exactly what I wanted. He also did AMAZING color work with my Pintura highlights! I am overjoyed. Yes, it cost me an arm and a leg, but I only get a haircut about once a year, sometimes longer, and I'm worth it! As many Deva cuts as I've had, this is by far the best one I've ever had. I've never left the salon so freaking excited for my hair! Sure, I knew how to take care of it already, I know my hair's nuances of temperament, but still I learned new things, new methods, new techniques to try, and I absolutely will be back to Southern Curl.

Jody made sure he found the perfect product for my... hair type. I also loved that he finger combed my hair.read moreJennifer M04:36 07 Dec 19So, I went to Southern Curl yesterday excited to get Pintura Highlights, but ended up leaving upset because the experience was not how I expected. Firstly, let me say, yes the highlights turned out... good and the service treatment was nice, but when it came down to everything else, not so much. So, I did not expect the whole experience to take 4 hours. It was 1 1/2 hours longer than I thought it would be. But, that wasn’t the biggest thing, it was the cost. Online it says that Pintura Highlights are $145 and up...I didn’t expect it to be $105 more added to that. Apparently, I am suppose to be told over the phone that if it is your first time getting color it would be $250, but I was not told that. The only place I saw that price was in a brochure they had in the shop. When scheduling my appointment, Renee took my call, and the only thing that was explained to me was when I asked what all does the service provide, she told me “Pintura Highlights and Styling”, but I was charged for those two plus “toner”. But, I was not made aware this before hand. It’s very misleading because who’s to say if I only came to the salon with $145 but then was told it was $250. Then what? I really like the outcome of my hair. I just wish the excitement of getting it done wasn't ruined by that huge mistake that blind sided me and having me pay more than I planned to pay.....read moreS Sims04:17 14 Nov 19We love Southern curl. After years of bad haircuts it is great to find someone who understands curly hair. Definitely worth the drive and price. Thank you!!!!Patsy W.13:11 13 Oct 19I asked for a trim/ guidance and maybe a little shorter and at least four inches were cut off and I was not told I’d be getting a chin length bob. I wanted it to look healthier not completely... different and she did not tell me how much she would be cutting off or show me the difference before she cut it. After I told her it was a little short and I preferred shoulder length, she told me the chin length bob was shoulder length. I am a little disappointed with the lack of communication between stylist and client. Hair is a girl’s form of confidence for a lot of people. If I had been made aware of the length difference I would immediately have said no. Once I expressed any disapproval or dislike to the stylist she became stand-offish only replying with, it’s cute, it’s shoulder length, you can still put it up (I cannot— it is too short). Very disappointed, especially for $110.read moreMizan Gebregziabher23:07 06 Oct 19Southern Curl was amaaazing! They really take their time with you and make sure you’re included in the process every step of the way. This is definitely a teaching salon, they don’t just send you... on your way after they’ve finished your hair. Throughout and even at the end of your service they go through each and every step before you leave their care. They want you to fully understand how to take care of your hair which I really appreciated. And on top of the great hair service they provide they also have great a staff. Everyone is so friendly and really invested in your hair, it makes you more excited for your new hair journey. I will definitely be coming back for more of my hair care needsread moreNicole Caldwell01:55 03 Oct 19Was disappointed with the service this time and will have to move on. I went to get an Olaplex treatment and trim my split ends as I am natural. The olaplex treatment was great. But as far as... trimming my ends, my hair was cut uneven. One side is shorter than the other. In addition, my hair is also overall shorter. It was touching my shoulders while curly, now it is at my ears. I guess I made the mistake of coming here for a natural hair trim because wayyyyy too much was cut off, and it’s uneven. My hair is still frizzy at the ends and I can’t even get it into a nice shape. On top of that, the trim costs the same as the cut—-$110 dollars. Literally 10 minutes of cutting my hair costs that much. Because of this, I have to go somewhere else to get a trim (which I’m sure they’ll cut more off). I’ve been growing my hair out since January and this is an extreme disappointment especially with me going out of town next week for a work trip.read moreJoann Thomas12:05 03 Sep 19They know exactly what they are doing, If you want the natural look with pretty curls then go to Southern Curls. Joann Thomasarianna fs23:38 15 Aug 19Love coming here! They do such an amazing job.

Appreciate your services.read morePreeti Ravindra02:46 11 Aug 19A must try for curly haired girls! Beth was fantastic and a true master of handling the shears on curly hair. My hair always turns out great. For first timers, they provide a consultation by... recommending a routine with the appropriate products to use.

Great vibe.Natalie Chambliss-Beach19:08 03 May 19There is an extreme problem with consistency!!! On my younger daughter’s third visit to Southern Curl, she received a haircut that was horrific. When I look back at pictures taken prior to her last... coloration and cut, I deeply regret having asked that her hair be “trimmed”. There are uneven sections and the majority of her length was taken off! My daughter feels ashamed of how her hair now looks and so do I! The color is ok, but my daughter will never obtain services from Southern Curl again....which is sad, because the staff are very friendly. Maybe it was an off day, but we are not willing to risk it again!read moreVicki Voisin00:11 23 Mar 19Traveling 1000 miles for a hair cut may seem extreme but it’s not when your destination is Southern Curl! Robin gave me the best, gentlest cut ever using the Deva Curl method. Then she taught me... how to enhance my hair with products to get the best results. This is an important piece of the Deva Curl experience. My hair has always been in charge. Maybe it would curl. Maybe it would be straight. Maybe it would be both! For the first time ever, I feel in control of my hair. Hello, Curls!!! Thank you, Robin!read moreKyle Barry18:34 23 Jan 19I was a customer of Southern Curl (and of Robin's before she built Southern Curl) for many years, but after my last few visits I've decided to move on. Some issues I have are with pricing (they... charge by the time spent on your hair), customer service (Robin is great, but the rest of the staff just dials it in), and salon organization (they changed reservation website three times in one year). In the end I don't feel like I get the value for the money I pay, and if I am going to pay $400 (cut, color, and two products) then I should feel like a valued client. I didn't, so I'm no longer a client.read moreJeremy Rigmaiden00:18 23 Dec 18Robin and crew are awesome! She went above and beyond.

Everyone is so friendly and knowledgeable. They really understand hair (ALL TEXTURES). Southern Curl also carries a great line of products in... store to maintain your hair until the next visit.
