Curly hair is my true love! I’m so excited to meet you and share everything I know with you. Curly hair is such a broad category, it can encompass those with tight coily curls and high density, or finer curls that can feel a little fragile, and everything in between. All of these different curls have different needs, so here is some guidance for making sure we have the correct service booked and can achieve the best results. I am comfortable cutting curly/wavy hair both wet and dry, it all depends on your hair type and your desired result.
How to book:
I use Schedulicity to book, and I'll detail below how to select which option to pick. That being said, I know it can still be a bit confusing, and if you want some guidance please email me or use the contact me box and I am more than happy to help you select the right option or find a time that works for you. Please be mindful too that while prices are listed, they are subject to change for services that take longer due to length, density, or doing a large transformation. Please also be aware of my policies for cancelling/rescheduling.
New Curly Client- Pick the Haircut for tight curls/coily texture option if it is your first time seeing me. We will go over all of your history and hair goals. We will decide if we are doing a wet or dry cut, and then proceed to styling and talking about maintenance and products. A lot of my clients with dense, coily curls get a dry cut and these appointments tend to take 90minutes to 2 hours when we include cutting, styling, drying, refining, and talking about products. So please be prepared for your appointment to cost $90-$120
Returning Curly dry cut- Pick the transformational cut/first time client option. This is for clients who have been in before and are getting their hair cut, washed, and styled. This appointment will typically be 90 minutes and is $90, but please be prepared for the possibility of it taking longer and a higher price point if your hair is high density.
Returning haircut, no styling- If you have been in to see me before, you can pick the haircut option, this is where we will cut your hair dry and I’ll do a light styling refresh, but not a full wash and style. This appointment typically takes 75-90 minutes. This price will range from $75-90 and can only be selected if you want to trim up the shape you have, this does not work well when we are taking off a lot of length or doing a completely new shape.
Okay, now you’re booked! Here’s what to expect when you come in:
Please arrive with your hair freshly washed, detangled, fully dry, and with a minimal amount of light styling products (no oils or heavy butters) in your hair.
Please wear your hair down with no pony tails, braids, buns, or twists.
This will give me the best assessment of your hair and allow me to give you the best service possible.
I work at Sparrow Salon, it is located on the corner of NE 73rd and Glisan. There is plenty of street parking. Please arrive a few minutes early so we can be sure to get started on time.
All visits will begin with an extended consultation where we’ll talk about what’s working with your hair, what’s not working, what your hair goals are, and what kind of maintenance you are looking for. If you have any inspiration or reference pictures, we’ll look at them together and make sure we are on the same page and have the same vision. Then you can sit back and relax, enjoy the wifi and have some tea or sparkling water and I’ll get to work.
We will go over how to style at home, products, and when I recommend you return for future appointments.
