Just for kicks I took pictures of almost every step of Cheryl's appointment with me so that you can see the difference a personalized curly cut by Yukiko can make!
When you sit in my chair, we will first spend some time talking about your current hair routine, products, desires, etc. Then we will discuss ingredients to avoid and what you want to look for in order to keep your curls looking their best. I walk you through every step of the way, doing a lot of explaining, so that you can feel confident in styling your own hair at home.
1. This is how she was asked to show up to her appointment: Washed and air-dried or diffuse-dried, with very little to no product in her hair and no hair ties or barrettes of any kind. I want to see your hair in its natural state.
2. I cut the hair curl by individual curl, sometimes lightly misting with a conditioning lavender spray to encourage the curls. Curly Hair Specialists have been trained in this art form, which is not taught in Beauty Schools, and I am fortunate to be counted among the best of the best in the Curly Hair Artistry.
3. After cutting, I take a step back to check symmetry and to make sure the sides and weightline are even. Often I will use my camera to check the cut as well, as discrepancies can sometimes become more apparent 2-dimensionally!
4. After the hair is cleansed, hydrated, products are applied, and roots are clipped, the hair is dried using either the diffuser, the hooded dryer (when was the last time you sat under one of those?!), or both.
5. You can see the gel cast in this picture, when the hair is completely dried, and before breaking it.
6. After a fluff and scrunch, you have the final "do"; and I also may do some last-minute snips here and there.
Hopefully that takes some of the fear out of your first appointment! Now go on over to my booking page and book yourself in! I look forward to meeting you!
