For curly hair, a dry cut allows you to have your curls designed the way you want them before the shape is altered by wetting it.

The cut techniques we employ enhance the natural curl pattern of your hair and creates well-defined curls.

A curly dry cut takes about 30-60 minutes (dependent on volume or state of hair). Because our curl specialists will shampoo and dry the hair, teaching you the detangling and shampooing process may be and extra 15 minutes. The drying process will be dependent on each individual’s hair from 10- 60 minutes so total service so put aside approx 2.5 hours.
