We recommend letting the work of the stylist choose you. Please go on our Instagram or Facebook pages and check out our work. Under each post is the stylist's name. The price may also dictate which stylist you choose. The Curly Cut is $160 to $225 for first time cuts and then is from $135-$200 after that. It ranges from stylist to stylist and is based on the level of experience of the stylist. All of our stylists are trained in the art of texture and are excellent!
The Curl by Curl Cut is the original Curly Girl Cutting technique, created and taught by Loraine Massey, one of the original co-founders of DevaCurl. She is no longer with DevaCurl and is teaching her Curl by Curl haircut, in her Tribeca salon, Spiral XY. This avant-garde approach, to cutting curls is done on dry hair and is done literally Curl by Curl.Unlike most haircuts, that are done on wet hair, using tension and sections, this one focuses on the overall shape and how one curl affects the other. In most cases, it is started at the crown of the head going down, as opposed to starting at the nape of the neck, going up. It is wonderful for preserving length.
The DevaCut is also a dry, tensionless, haircut, that is done on textured hair. It is begun at the nape of the neck going up to the crown, using sections and groupings of three waves/ curls at a time. It creates a seamless shape because of the thoughtful approach and being mindful of how naturally curly hair is inconsistent.
The RezoCut was developed by Nubia Suarez and is a dry cutting technique that was inspired by her love of roses. The rose shape is cut into the curls creating volume where desired. The goal of this cut is to maintain length and volume.
The difference between the three is the technique, approach and end result.
We are just getting to know your hair and the first time takes longer than follow-up appointments. We also include a clarifying and deep conditioning treatment to give your curls a spa day and get them on the right track. You can opt to have this done at every appointment for an additional fee.
Another reason is we provide every new guest a lesson on how to wash, condition, apply products and style your hair. We also go over how to care for your hair on a regular basis. We have a lot of knowledge to share with you and want to help you find a routine that works best for you. Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge needed for the best results. It is more than a haircut, it’s an experience!
A clarifying shampoo is formulated to remove buildup or residue on your hair and /or scalp. We have built the clarifying treatment into the first appointment because we have found that most guests need this in order for us to provide the best results. If there is silicone based product or oil build-up, we can not properly moisturize your hair. Clarifying is an essential part of your first visit and good to incorporate in your routine.

Anyone scheduled to have a curly cut at Curl, needs to come in with their hair freshly washed, curly-products in it, down and completely dry, encouraging the natural texture. We need you to style your hair either the night before or morning of your appointment, depending on whether the appointment is in the morning or evening. Do not tuck, clip, barret, pull up or put a hat on after it is styled. If you let it air dry and doubt it'll be dry in time for the scheduled appointment, please arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time, to sit under the hooded dryer. Please let us know if you need to do this if your appointment is in the morning since we may not be there. Preparation is the same for all cuts offered at Curl and it is imperative that it is followed thoroughly, in order for amazing results. Please call us if you have any questions!
All curly cuts range from $135- $225. All three haircuts are specialized and unique. These haircuts were learned in three different academies in New York.
The cut lasts almost three times longer than a regular wet haircut (with proper home care), because it holds its shape better and grows out more gracefully. Another reason we use these techniques is because the stylist is able to see the shape and texture pattern better than wet, resulting in a more predictable and favorable result.
The haircuts can go up in price if:
It's been longer than a year since your last professional haircut because reshaping and cutting hair that hasn't been maintained professionally, takes longer.
There is extreme matting and tangling that adds on extra time than the allotted 1.5 hours plus.
If that hair is extremely thick and/or long we may need to use additional products.
Please note that Teresa, the owner of Curl, is the only stylist at Curl that doesn't accept tips.
We require a $75 deposit to reserve your first appointment that is due at the time of booking your appointment. The amount of time allotted to our first appointments is greater than follow-up appointments. The first appointment can take anywhere from two to three hours, depending on the hair density, condition and needs of the guest.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please give us at least 48 (salon business) hours’ notice from your scheduled appointment time. If the appointment is canceled with less than 48 hours of notice, we require full payment of the service canceled. All messages regarding cancellations and rescheduling must be done during salon business hours, Tuesday through Saturday. All messages related to rescheduling and or canceling must be sent directly via voicemail or email, to the stylist you are scheduled with.
Additionally, any guests who are scheduled with multiple services in one day, ( ie. Color and haircut or haircut and conditioning treatment), who wish to modify their appointment, please notify the salon at least 48 hours from the scheduled appointment time. If less than 48 hours’ notice was given from the scheduled appointment time, and the modified appointment takes less time, than the original services scheduled, it is treated the same as a cancellation for that service that was cancelled. For example, if you are scheduled with a highlight, base color and haircut, then change it to only a haircut, without giving us 48 hours’ notice, we will ask for a 50% fee of the services canceled.
We can refund any unused product within four weeks from the day it's purchased.
An appointment at our salon is a unique experience for your curls. We really work with our guests one-on one with their curls and provide a lot of information about curly hair in general. We do a very thorough consultation to start, listen to our guests needs and do an evaluation on the existing haircut and/or color. We provide a lesson on how to care for your curls at home and explain everything we are doing along the way!
Unlike an in-and-out haircut appointment, we take the time to really get to know your hair and get you on the right track.
For those reasons we ask that you only schedule a consultation if your hair needs major correction in any way. At this time we are doing all consultations virtually. Please call the salon with any questions about consultations!
If you have heard about our expertise with textured hair it is because of our extensive training and focus on cutting textured hair. We do all of our curly cuts on dry hair. We will not cut curly hair wet, which is similar to cutting it blindfolded. If you are letting your hair air-dry naturally, are diffusing it, or looking to encourage your natural texture the majority of the time, then we will cut it while dry. It is the method we will use to ensure the best results!
Yes, and all curly cuts blow out beautifully! The curly cuts we offer, can be done on any texture, not just curly or super curly. We recommend that you give your hair a rest from the heat and tension for 6 months after your cut. We understand that the commitment to not blowing your hair out straight may be unrealistic. Please note that the curly cuts work better when not flat-ironed, but blown out loose and smooth!
