Afro Haircuts

If you have afro hair, you will know that it needs specialist afro hair cuts to look and feel its best. Andre Walker, the hairstylist to stars like Oprah, created a curl typing system, where Afro hair fits into type 4. With three defined subsets, look at our Afro page to find images that will help you to decode what type your hair is – and here are some descriptions and tips.

Afro Haircuts and the Curl Guide

Type 4A: Recognised by tightly coiled lower-case ‘s’ shapes, this type has a curl circumference of a standard pencil. Wash and go styles can be easy with the right products and techniques, although dryness is a real issue

Type 4B: Tightly coiled and dense curls, with a fluffy appearance. Often visible ‘s’ and ‘z’ patterns in the curls. This hair type has kinks in the strands themselves, so is highly susceptible to breakage. Hair appears up to 70% shorter due to shrinkage without stretching. Dryness can be mitigated with coconut or castor oil used before washing to replace and retain oils in the scalp.

Type 4C: These are the most densely packed coils, with strand diameter that can range from super fine, thin, and soft to wiry and coarse. 4C hair is very delicate – and needs careful treatment & afro curly haircuts to keep it healthy and less prone to breakage.


Why is This Important for Afro Curly Haircuts?

With all these hair types, the most important thing to maintain the health of your hair is hydration. Whether you are getting afro curly haircuts or just looking for ways to make your hair look and feel healthier, shinier and be more manageable, the best thing you can do is hydrate.

Most people do not consider that Afro hair is the most delicate. We think you need to treat your Afro hair like a fine silk – cleanse it gently, detangle it softly, and avoid harsh chemicals when you can.

Escape the hecticness of life. On arrival, you’ll get a welcoming visarome massage around your hairline using a choice of diluted essential oils to help you relax.

Rumbie & Co curl experts offer comprehensive consultations, understanding your curl needs and working with you to deliver great curls in a creative, relaxed and safe atmosphere.

Hair should be clean, detangled and dry before the appointment as curls are distorted when the hair is wet. An extra charge may be incurred for detangling and rescheduling in other cases.

If there are any hair extensions, cornrows or plaits, please remove them prior to the appointment. Alternatively you can book for an extension removal prior to your desired services.

We endeavour to have your hair done within the stipulated time frame, however, with curly hair there are variables beyond our control that could extend your time in the salon.

1. Seeing that curly hair is the new phenomenon for most of us, some of our patrons require TLC and our team endeavours to ensure all patrons have their questions answered and are set to win on their curly journey.

2. With varying hair textures come varying time allocations for drying too.

3. As some of our curl specialists are developing their growing skills, more time may be needed to perfect your style.

For this, we ask that you are patient with us. If time is of the essence, we recommend booking in with our more experienced specialists.

Regardless of the feedback, we welcome your highlights (pun intended) on how well we have executed anything as well as growlights on what areas we can develop and how so we can work at being the curl salon you envision.

Together, we can figure this out.

While we strive to deliver to your expectations and beyond, we do need your help in this regard. This means, we would love for you to talk to us before, during and after your service. If you didn’t feel comfortable during your time in the salon, please feel free to call or email [email protected]

We would arrange a consultation with a stylist of your choice, in this way we can find a way forward. You can also be booked in with another curl specialist of your preference based on your needs.

If your curls appear looser than usual after a service, the product may be too heavy for your curls. Please don’t be upset, your hair can be washed again and styled using a lighter product and voila just like that your curls are bouncy again. Please note, no one head of hair is the same and there are definitely options

You can ALWAYS speak up. This is a revolution. We can partner well together with communication. If you are not understanding anything, in pain, uncomfortable about anything, please speak up.
