Colouring & Cutting Curly Hair

It is a completely different thing to cutting normal, straight European hair. I do not think there are a lot of people that can really grasp what to do with curls, and certainly i think anybody with curly hair knows that. A lot of the time, people with curly hair dread coming into a salon, especially due to the way people may simply just dry it for them or not dry it may be the case.

Colouring curly hair is very different in the sense that you have really got to be quite gutsy with the colour, otherwise it will just vanish into the hair. You can spend ages putting all of the colour in, wash it off at the basin, take the client to section and its gone. There is then disappointment for you and also to the client.

So, there is just ways of mixing up the different weaves you put in. It is all about the placement, it is everything when it comes to colouring curl.

I tend to cut curl in a very relaxed way and almost technically ’incorrectly’, but from a client’s perspective they love it! This is because the hair looks lived in, relaxed and it does not look like it has been done by a hair dresser, but equally the haircut still has balance.

Curl is a huge subject in it’s entirety and those with curly hair do need that extra bit of help maintaining and looking after it.

Due to recent changes with health & safety guidance, we will now require a skin allergy test on every client who has:

  • Used Home Dye kits
  • Had COVID-19 since their last colour appointment
  • Never had a colour service with us before
  • Have a colour appointment coming up

Since the COVID-19 outbreak and further immunisations, there is potential that you could be more sensitive to certain ingredients and processes involved in professional salon colouring. These skin allergy tests are required 48hours before your appointment but no more than 5 days before. 

Failure to do this will unfortunately result in your appointment being rescheduled, which we of course don’t want after this long wait! We will not be able to perform a colour service if you have not had your allergy skin test recorded and checked by our team. 

We don't want to make this difficult, but our priority is your safety. To book in for your skin test when we are open, please book online.
