Hola! I hope all is good! This coming October will mark my four-year nappiversary and would you know I have not been to a salon the entire time! I have trimmed, styled and maintained my own hair through the transition phase up to now. I’m use to it because in the past I would relax and style my own hair prior to this natural journey anyway. However the past few months I’ve been contemplating going to a professional stylist for some hair TLC. Well this past Wednesday I finally decided to treat myself so I headed downtown to Miss Jessie’s Curl Bar salon. They were having a 25% off special, the reviews were pretty good and I’ve tried their products before so I thought–why not?
I walked in and was immediately greeted, offered snacks/drinks and had my picture taken (for my hairstory/records). The salon was very nice yet smaller than I had imagined but still quaint. I opted to get the Buttercut Go Go which is a cut and WNG; they use the “Butterfly Method” whereas multiple stylists may flutter about working on your hair to ensure the best and quick service. Within 10 mins I was in the chair of the 1st stylist having my consultation and then off to wash.
After my wash I was placed under the dryer for about 15 mins in order to prep for my blow-out which followed immediately by a 2nd stylist. I must say I was terrified of heat damage (see my scary face in the pic above) but it was low heat for the most part and quick so I got over it. Once all of that was done I was now ready for my cut/trim with the 3rd stylist. I explained to her that I really wanted a trim and shaping not necessarily a drastic cut. She explained everything that she was doing and asked for my approval the entire time–perfect!
I made it through the trim now on to the final steps—styling. I was back in the hands of the 1st stylist and she suggested that I use Miss Jessie’s Curly Meringue for my tresses. I was down to give it a try since I’ve only used the Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding before. She washed and rinsed my strands then shingled the product through with her fingers. Again I was placed under the dryer for about 20 mins to set my hair. Afterwards she diffused to make sure that my roots weren’t damp, picked/fluffed and viola what you see is what you get (see pic above)!
When I got home I played around with it more by fluffing to make it even bigger and pulled some curlz forward to create bangs. My curls are popping and it looks much healthier! My overall experience was great as they were very professional, knowledgeable and quick. They also gave me a goodie bag filled with over 20 sample packets! If you are seeking a fix for your curlz then I highly recommend Miss Jessie’s Curl Bar. You have nothing to lose as you can make an appointment or walk in. Go here for deets on services, prices, and times. Enjoy!
