Know Before You Book and Go

Q: Are all the stylists skilled at cutting curly hair?

A: Yes. As the first salon in Minnesota (and maybe all of the Midwest) to specialize in curly hair, all of our stylists are skilled in cutting and coloring curly hair. Our Director of Education is also a Deva Educator. That means she not only trains our staff, but she teaches the Deva technique on-site at other salons throughout North America. Please note:  “Curly Cuts” and “Deva Cuts” are both done on dry hair.  A Curly Cut is done by an apprentice, and a Deva Cut is done by a stylist who has had Deva training, and is, therefore, Deva Inspired. Currently we have five Deva Inspired stylists. For further information, please contact the salon.


Q: Does the stylist cut curly hair while it’s dry?

A: Yes.


Q: Will the stylist see me for a consultation before a curly cut?

A: Yes, consultations are complimentary and required. They can be booked as a stand alone appointment or with a curly cut or color.


Q: Does the salon offer hooded dryers and diffusers as an alternative to blow drying wet hair?

A: Absolutely. They are available for purchase as well.


Q. What products does the salon use?

A: For curly hair, we highly recommend Deva. For more product information, please see the product page.


Q: How do I schedule a consultation?

A: You can book any salon or spa appointment by clicking here or calling (612) 729-4415.


Q: What do I need to know before I get there?

A: Come to your appointment with dry hair in its curly state. Your hair will be cut dry (not wet), so it is imperative that your hair is dry and in its curly state (not pulled up or back in any way). For curls sake, no ponytails, braids, halfbacks, updos or the like are welcome on the day of your appointment!


Q: What should I expect on my first visit.

A: For starters, you can expect a cup of hot tea and a pleasant experience.


Q: What will be discussed during the first appointment?

A: You are here for the best haircut of your life and to learn how to properly care for your curls. We are here to do our absolute best to ensure that happens. Expect to answer a lot of questions about your hair, the challenges you’re facing, and where you would like your hair to be today and in a few months from now. Unfortunately, getting healthy curls does not happen overnight. It is a process that takes time and deliberation (and is totally worth it in the end). You can, however, expect to leave with beautiful curls that you’ve likely never seen before!
