This is the journey of the curly hair specialist.
After months and research I decided to embark on the Devacurl journey. I booked myself on a course at the Devacurl academy beneath the Devachan hair salon , designed for curly hair, in the SoHo area of New York City.
This was an intense 2 day course learning how to cut and colour curly hair. The Devacurl way.
Intense theory and practical demonstrations cutting hair without a comb,( as a hairdresser that’s unheard of) whilst dry, and cutting hair visually, with each curl.
The reason why we cut hair dry is all to do with the spring factor, curls can and will bounce up, and having too much tension makes that spring factor happen even more.
Practical cutting followed with guidance from the educators, Cal and Jessica.
Following day was the colouring, and learning how to colour the Pintura way. This is designed by Devacurl and the beautiful way of colouring hair, softly and low mantainence for the guest.
Devacurl products were discussed, unfortunately they are unavailable in the U.K. But watch this space… (I’m on it!) what’s great about these products is they are water soluble, silicone free ( silicone is in car wax!) and sulphate free( this is drying on the hair) and botanical. I’m a firm believer of botanical products, why use chemicals when you have nature.im now researching into another product range I can offer the curly girls.
So I’m now a qualified Devacurl stylist based in Exeter, Devon and the only one to offer this unique service in the south west of England .
Whilst speaking to Cal, we talked education and told him my experience in the educational side of hairdressing and he mentioned he’ll be needing devacurl educators, and he’ll keep me in mind…. how exciting!
Curly hair is dry. Curly hair needs moisture. Curly hair needs hydration .
