How do I choose a stylist?
We recommend letting the work of the stylist choose you. Please go on our Instagram or Facebook Page and check out our work. Under each post is the stylist's name who did the work. 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,
What is a Curl by Curl Cut? What is a DevaCut? What is a RezoCut? What is the difference?
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.
Why is the first CurlyCut priced higher and take more time than follow-up appointments?
First-time services take longer than follow-up service appointments for more than one one reason. We are just getting to know your hair and need to see it in its natural state. Part of this process involves getting the residual product out of the hair. We do this so we can properly moisturizer your curls. We use a clarifying cleanser and follow with a deep conditioning mask. These steps are needed to get you on the right path.
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!
What is the Clarifying Treatment and do I absolutely need this?
We have built the 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 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.

How to prepare your hair for the appointment and why this is important!
Please come in with your hair completely dry, detangled and freshly styled. There is a $25 charge for revitalizing and prepping your hair before the haircut. We also may not be able to complete the service.
How much is a Curl by Curl Cut? RezoCut? DevaCut? Why are these cuts more expensive than a regular haircut?
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.
Why do I have to reserve my first appointment with a credit card? Will I be charged?
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.
What is our policy on canceling, modifying or rescheduling appointments? Refunds or exchanges on products?
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 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.
Do I need a consultation?
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!
I have wavy/curly/coily hair but want a wet haircut. Is this possible?
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!
Am I still able to blow out my hair straight?
Yes, and all Curly Cuts blows out beautifully! The Curly Cut is a haircut that can be done on any texture, not just curly or super curly. While we recommend that you give your hair a rest from the heat and tension for 6 months after your Curly Cut, we understand that the commitment to not blowing your hair out straight may be unrealistic. Please note that the Curly Cut works better when not flat-ironed but blown out loose and smooth!
