In fact when we keep an open and honest communication together then we can then begin to create a masterpiece for your hair.

Taking a whole approach to curly hair cutting

We believe it’s very important for our customers that Curly Cuts takes on a whole approach to curly hair cutting and products. 

With this in mind, Curly Cuts is inclusive and open to all curly cutting methods and all curly hair.  This includes wavy hair and natural textured hair. 

For example, the popular curl by curl cutting method, dry curl cutting, freehand curl cutting, wet curl cutting and more. 

Consultation before cutting 

When you arrive at Curly Cuts our curly stylist will consult with you before cutting. 

We encourage our customers to speak up and discuss if they have any cutting methods or products that they do not want to be used on the hair. 

Our salon’s ethics are honesty and integrity before cutting or washing your hair because we want our customers to feel fully relaxed and confident before we start your service.

We encourage you to email us at book@curlycuts.com.au if you prefer to discuss us your concerns before your appointment.

Hooded dry, Diffuse Dry , Radiant Ring Dryer Or Air Dry

When you book in for a cut your can choose your prefered dry method. Either hooded dry, radiant ring dryer, diffuse dry. Or if you are booing in for just a cut you can leave with wet hair or a dry refreshed cut.

Or alternatively leave it to us to decide on the day what is best suited for your curls.

Please make sure that if you want your hair dryed that you select the service with a dry so that we have the allocated time for your appointment. All cut appointments that include a dry come with a free hydration service.
