Solutions for Curly Hair

Solutions for curly hair can be found here or by seeing one of our specialist at the salon. A lot of people ask us if we have curly hair specialists. We do! Cutting curly hair can take a certain kind of finesse and intuition. We at Studio 229 are here for you. During your consultation we will ask you plenty of questions to ensure we give you the correct style for your curly mane. 🙂 For example: how do you style your hair? Will you be blow-drying? Would you like to wear it both curly and straight? Do you prefer volume or would you like to decrease bulk?

A common mistake a lot of stylists make on curly hair is over-layering. Our stylist DeAnna likes to do a technique called twist cutting. This decreases bulk and accentuates the curl without creating bulky lines (AKA a shelf).
She also great with curly hair and has plenty of techniques up her sleeve for de-bulking thick hair.

Perhaps you don’t want to de-volumize. Big hair is in! We also know some techniques for building volume at the top or crown. A common problem with curly hair is the weight of the hair can make it flat at the top and the big at the bottom. This can create kind of a triangle shape. Not always what you may be going for. The trick is to find some balance and create a flattering shape. Soft tapered ends and volume at the top can help achieve this.

If you are looking to smooth the hair and reduce volume, am amino straightening treatment may be a good option for you. This is a safe way to remove some of the curl for a few months. The amount of curl removed depends on the hair type. Up to 100% curl and volume reduction may be achieved on less course hair types. If your hair is extremely course and curly the curl and volume will still be dramatically reduced. At this point you may wear your hair with a slight wave or with much less styling, straight. Either way this procedure dramatically reduces styling time! It’s amazing! Costs for this service vary on the amount of hair you have/ time and amount of product needed for your hair. You may come in for a free consultation to determine the cost and time you’d need to allot for the appointment.

Happy Trails!
