Hello Curl

Second Story believes that curly hair should be cut dry. Why, I hear you ask?

Curls are all different. On one head of curls, you can have some ringlets, some loose curls, some wavy hair and some straight hair.

Not a single head of curls has the same curl type.

With a traditional haircut, the hair is wet, all hair is straightened out and stretched, while wet, with a comb.

The hair is all cut to the same point.

There are 2 things that happen here which are detrimental to hair that is  worn curly:

Firstly, bringing all the hair to the same point, whilst stretched out, does not allow for the variation of the spring factor of the dried curl. This may mean that parts of the haircut sit longer over hair which sits much shorter, or vice versa.

Secondly, wet hair stretches about 20% further than dry hair does.

You can imagine just how much shorter the hair becomes not only once it springs back, but once the curls have dried with their natural spring factor on top of having been stretched out.

Cutting your curls or waves dry ensures that you leave the salon with your actual desired length.

Yes, there is. To be able to properly perform a curly cut, you need to arrive to your appointment with clean, dry hair, which has been either air dried or styled using a diffuser attachment on your hairdryer.

Please do not use a large amount of mousse or gel

Do not use products containing heavy oils or butters (Shea Moisture range and Garnier Hair foods are not recommended, for example)

Do not tie your hair up in any way, use clips, pins, headbands, hats or wear sunglasses on top of your head before your appointment

If you have an early appointment, keep in mind that day 1 or day 2 hair is ok-you don’t have to wash it that morning, a quick refresh is enough.

If you are having a colour service with your cut, you are still required to prepare your hair, as your cut is done before your colour process.

You sure can!  Second Story LOVE’s colour.

we keep the integrity of your curls at the centre of all our colourwork. We have Wella Plex available and we also have so many great ideas to minimise the damage that can be caused by colouring your hair.

Because a Curl Cut  is bespoke to your curls and each curl over your head will have variations in spring factor, if you are to straighten your hair you may find uneven lengths. If you like to straighten your hair on a regular basis let your curly specialist know, we will discuss options with you
