Curly hair is a specialty, and each client’s curly hair is as individual as the each curl itself.  We take pride in working with what you have to help you express yourself through your haircut & style.  Curly hair is the envy of every woman with straight hair, but you know we all have our own struggles in the follicle department.   The stylists at Crimson have compiled advice on maintaining your curly mane, and developing a style that makes you feel proud, sexy, and on point.

A Round Up Of Recommended Techniques & Products, Curly Hair Advice and Inspiration

Owner of Crimson Hair Studio and Master Stylist Jen is looking out for the underrepresented in the curly hair scenario:  Men.  “Men often get overlooked when searching for curly hairstyles. Cutting hair short can help keep waves at bay, but working with your curl can create texture and movement in your cut. By removing weight throughout the interior of the cut Styles will easily fall into place  with either a light curl cream such as Killer.Curls by Kevin.Murphy, or a firmer pomade such as Layrite Super Hold Pomade. Both will create shine and separation while taming curls in humid summer months.”
Curly Hair Advice and Inspiration

Danielle, our curly haired queen, says:  It’s hard to keep curls looking lush, especially in the summer; it’s long spiraled road from the roots to ends preventing all that natural goodness your scalp produces on its own to help moisturize your hair. Killer.Curls is a product problem solver in this department, and is good for using a diffuser or  air drying.

Curly Hair Advice and Inspiration

*DO
Use a liberal amount of product on really thick hair
Use km fresh hair in the root area between shampoos
Apply product to wet hair them towel blot, pushes product in and helps reduce frizz.

*DO NOT
Wash everyday
Excessively touch those locks after they are dry & frizzcity
Go longer than 6-8 weeks between trims

Becky advises:  When it comes to having curly hair, it is important to identify whether you want to enhance or tame your natural curl. Cutting techniques and styles can help create the perfect shape for someone’s curl pattern.

A lot of curly-haired people I know use at least 3 products when styling, but there are products on the market that are multi-functional. Start taming your curly locks with the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type, then find the right styling product! Keep in mind that as seasons change, so should your product. In the winter, air is more dry so something with a little more moisture is needed. Try Kevin.Murphy Motion.Lotion. In the summer, air is more humid and hair needs less moisture. To create a textured, beachy curl, use Kevin.Murphy Hair.Resort Lotion and air dry hair.

Curly Hair Advice and Inspiration

Jeanne: Curly hair is beautiful & can also be very tricky. No one knows your curls better than you do, so  communicate openly with your stylist during the consultation. Tell them what has worked in the past and what hasn’t, so the two of you can hash out a plan for the cut and style. Some people like a round shape, and some like a longer style where the length weighs the curls down a little so they’re not so bouncy. Tell your stylist what you like about your curls and they can decide which cut will work best for you.

I love Killer.Curls by Kevin.Murphy for the curly girls, it enhances and smoothes curls without being too heavy. Since curly haired clients tend to stretch out styles a few days longer than normal, hydration is also important. Combine Killer Curls with a drop of Young.Again Oil or Happy Campers Leave-In Moisturizer for hydrated, longer lasting curls. Most curly haired people use more than one product every single day, so don’t be afraid to try different things, solo, or layered on top of eachother for the perfect curly hair concoction.

Laura:  Curly hair can be difficult considering curly hair clients are very unique in their routines and products. No styling method, cut or product works for everyone. Curly haired clients have to experiment over and over until they find the routing that works best individually. With that said, curly hair can be dry and frizzy so keep it healthy and hydrated:  regular haircuts and great conditioners are a must! Don’t over wash hair and leave some conditioner in when you rinse. I prefer curl cremes over gels and mousse, for their added moisture and light natural hold. Towel dry hair, apply product and let it do it’s thing. To avoid frizz its best to not fuss with too much.
Em encourages:  The first step with curls is to learn to embrace them!  I love Liquid Rollers by evo, its a curl balm that can be used to hydrate and add curl definition without the crunch factor.  Day of Grace leave in conditioner is a great product to rewet curls on that second day.  It’s lightweight enough to be able to use all over hair without weighing down curls.

Francesca:  Long curly hair that tends to be dry, I apply Evo Happy Camper to the mid shaft and ends. It’s a leave in moisturizer with UV protection that seals the curls beautifully. This product is great for air drying.

 

Always take your style to a professional, who can personally advise ways to keep your locks locked down and looking sharp!
