A Little Backstory...
Having worked in this industry for the last 19 years, and specializing in curly hair for the last 9, I've learned a thing or two about texture...and none of it I ever learned in cosmetology school.
Many clients visit the salon requesting a haircut and style so they can wear their natural texture everyday; only to leave disappointed with smooth, sleek hair they cannot replicate at home. This happens for two reasons.
Miscommunication during the initial consultation
Hair Stylists not having the skills to work with textured hair
Many Hair Stylists believe that people with curly hair want to wear their hair straight (eurocentric beauty standards I often talk about), but I know from experience behind the chair that this line of thinking is just not true. If clients had someone to guide them, 9/10 would wear their natural curls proudly. This is where you, the beauty professional can come to the rescue...
The education I offer could make up a massive chapter in cosmetology textbooks! I have designed curl-specific education for the professional Hair Stylist community, building a bridge to increased income and confidence working with natural textures. The end result is client satisfaction, retention and more referrals.
Initial results from my hands-on training class and online course for Hair Stylists have been inspiring and the responses have me excited about what lies ahead for the curly community and the stylists who care for their hair.
Below are my qualifications for you to take a peek at and beyond that you can learn what classes I am currently offering, online and in person.
