THE NEW GUEST CURLY EXPERIENCE
YOUR FIRST VISIT WITH ME & WHAT TO EXPECT
Thank you for your interest in setting up a CURLY EXPERIENCE! I can not wait to meet you! It is my goal to meet and surpass all of your service expectations and hair needs. Let's get started...
The CURLY EXPERIENCE starts when you use the online booking system below to request an appointment. Once your appointment request is received, a welcome message will be sent to you with more details helping to ensure that your first visit is seamless. I will be asking you to send:
1) Two CURRENT photos of your hair (side and back selfie pics in the mirror are fine) along with your NAME and EMAIL ADDRESS to: (510)838-2875 or
2) A Venmo deposit of $100 towards the 1st time Curly Experience appointment (which is approximately $180) and which is fully refundable if you change or cancel at LEAST 48-hours prior to your appointment.
Upon arriving to my studio on the day of your scheduled appointment, I will greet you and guide you through the 15-minute consultation process. Together, we will formulate a plan tailored specifically for your hair needs; not just for your initial visit, but a long term one as well, ensuring all of your hair goals will be met.
Your Dry Curly Cut will be designed to perfectly suit your face shape, lifestyle and overall goals. Styling tips and tricks are always shared to equip you with the means to recreate your new look at home. I also offer support after your appointment through text, email or DM.
Generally, I wait until the second appointment to address your color needs and goals for the following appointment. We will set approximate pricing and go over everything. I will take notes so we can refer back to them. We use PPD-free Davines and Framesi Italian color and I aim to under-promise and over-deliver.
Wrapping up your visit, recommendations for at-home care will be shared and discussed, and we will set up your next appointment. I recommend having your ends trimmed at least every 3-4 months, which will enable you to take advantage of a CURLY CUT EXPRESS. A "CCE" is $75-$125. It's a 20-minute dry cut on curly hair and includes a refresh and fluff. It does not include a wash and dry. This is a great maintenance cut and is not meant to for those who want a whole new shape or bangs if you haven't already had them cut in. CCE must be within 4 months of your last appointment. Please wear your hair down, completely dry and as curly as possible for this service.
ALL FIRST-TIME clients will need to book a CURLY EXPERIENCE so I can make time for the consult and getting to know your hair. Even though you've had a Dry Curly Cut or Deva Cut at another establishment, I still request that you book for the Curly Experience at my salon. Once I see your current pics, I will give you an approximate price. Please let me know anything you can up front: "I haven't had my hair cut in a year, I use Herbal Essence shampoo and Shea moisture conditioner, I just took out my braids, I flat iron my hair once a month, I box dye my hair once a month." These really help me make a game plan for your curls.
Please send photos of your desired look to (510)838-2875, or better yet, email with your full name at least the day before your appointment so we are not using up precious time searching your photos for a long-lost pic of your best hair day.
When you send your current photos, I will do my best to set pricing which ranges from $125 for a short curly cut and very little coaching to approximately $250 for longer locks with deep conditioning needs and/or extra dry time. I will be fair for pricing out my time. If I am erring on the side of a higher or lower price, it will always be to your advantage.
