Things to know before your first curly cut...

Often people who visit us for the first time have not had a dry cut before (or the dry-cutting method that we use). Here are a few tips for your first visit to the salon:

1. Have your hair down and in its NATURAL, CURLY STATE, preferably dry. Being that we cut curl by curl, we need to see the true articulation of your individual curl pattern.

2. You can have styling products in your hair. If your curls show best with gel/mousse/cream, etc, that's perfectly fine.

3. We will do a THOROUGH consultation before we begin the cut. Come with any questions or concerns you might have.

4. If you have pictures of styles/cuts you like, feel free to bring them. Visual references are always a good thing, even if you later decide on a different look.

5. You can always come in for a free consultation before the cut. We do ask that you schedule the consult in advance so we can set aside time for all of your questions.

As always, if you have ANY questions about the process or about a particular curl specialist or apprentice, do not hesitate to ask.

We look forward to helping you realize the beauty and uniqueness of YOUR curls!

What is CurLab and Curl Clinic?

Answer: our newest curly hair services!

In an effort to offer more services to our curly clients, East 42nd Street Salon is introducing CurLab and Curl Clinic.

What they are...

CurLab is a chance for our curly apprentices, junior stylists, and master stylists to experiment with new cut and color techniques. Because it is a "lab" environment with a new cut or color technique, there is a discounted cost. The CurLab service includes a cut and color service, up to but not including a full pintura. Cost is $100 for master curly stylists, $85 for junior curly stylists, and $75 for apprentices. You can purchase additional add-ons as well, such as deep conditions and two or more colors. You can also elect to only do a cut and forgo the color, in which case the service is half price. CurLab is a fantastic opportunity to get creative with your curls and try something new and different! CurLab appointments are taken on Wednesday evenings only. Call now for more information!

Curl Clinic is an intensive, one-on-one tutorial on home curl care. Your curly stylist will walk you step-by-step through your styling routine, from cleansing and conditioning to styling and finishing. We encourage clients to bring their products and appliances (diffusers, clips, etc) from home so we can best recreate your everyday routine. Curl Clinic is also a great way to learn styling tricks and tips, such as updos or different ways to wear your hair. Cost is $25 and is being offered by junior and master curly stylists.

If you have any questions about CurLab and Curl Clinic, please do not hesitate to call today and ask for details! Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!
