As anyone with curls, kinks and textures knows – finding a hairdresser that understands your mane is no easy feat. Whether you want a full-on curly blowout or a snipped off bob, it’s essential that your stylist has the knowledge and experience to understand the unique shape of your strands. Thankfully, there’s plenty of skilled hairdressers who do, and here are our picks.
A true curly hair specialist understands that effective communication and a detailed consultation are fundamental to the process. This means not only listening to a client’s concerns and challenges, but also ensuring that the final result supports how they want to live with their hair. Unfortunately, this is not the case in many salons that claim to be ‘curly experts’.
When you book in with a stylist at a boutique strands-focused salon, you can be sure they will have the knowledge and skills to create an in-depth and personalised consultation that goes beyond their curated colour menu. With a specialisation in curly cuts and treatments, Maiden Hair is leading the way when it comes to the art of creating beautifully textured hair.
