Learning to love and accept ourselves is medicine for the soul. Helping others see the incredible beauty they've been afraid to show the world is what I was made to do. In working through my own hair challenges, I finally figured out the secrets to working with textured hair.
I can't wait to share it all with you.
These examples come from my own past and stories I have heard from clients in my chair, but I know they are your stories too. I’ve been where you are and I’ve faced the same hair challenges.
What I know for sure is that when natural texture is embraced, hair and hearts are healed.
With the in-person and online training I created for individuals and Hair Stylists, people are finally having opportunities to learn how to care for their hair with results that last more than one day. Many are leaving the salon happy for the first time in their lives.
What you learn from me, you will carry with you for the rest of your life. Whether you're a curly individual looking for help managing your curls, or a Hair Stylist wanting to learn about all textures and curl patterns; I am here to help you.
After struggling with frizz my entire life, I went to cosmetology school in 2002 thinking I would learn how to tame my own unruly hair while learning how to make others look and feel beautiful.
What I learned was very eurocentric methods – wet cuts, hot tools, round brushes, and blow outs – all intended to smooth curly hair, not enhance it. I worked another 10 years as a traditional stylist until one day my world went from black and white to full of colour! I found a passage in a book that changed my life and the trajectory of my business.
“Frizz is just a curl waiting to happen”
- Lorraine Massey
When I discovered that my own frizz was actually wavy hair, I began using what I had learned on my own hair to help my clients. I ended up creating a salon service that so many people needed and was truly touched by the positive change my curl services made in clients lives. They finally loved the hair they were born with and were proud to wear their natural texture. It was then that I decided I would be the person I needed when I was growing up...a curly hair specialist.
