CURLFRIEND 411

 

Where are you located?

I work at Rock Paper Scissors Salon in downtown Five Points near the University of South Carolina.

Here is the address:

Rock Paper Scissors Salon
625 Harden Street
Columbia, South Carolina
29205

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: 
MY SERVICES ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY AND I DO NOT TAKE WALK-INS. I APPRECIATE AND THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.


Do you have a portfolio with your work?

Yes! I have my Instagram profile @sunflowersandscissors and my business Facebook page @sunflowersandscissors where you can view my work.


What service do you recommend for first time clients? 

The Curly Haircut with a Hydrating Wash and Go Styling Lesson, the Curly Haircut with Moisture Therapy, the Curly Haircut with an Olaplex Treatment, or the Curl Love Deluxe Experience are the best bets for first time clients. 

In those sessions, your hair will be analyzed and you will learn what your hair needs are based off of the condition that it is in at your appointment.


Would you recommend a treatment service for first time clients?

If your hair hasn't been on a proper schedule for haircuts every 3 or 4 months, if your hair is suffering from major heat or chemical damage, or if your hair is coated in heavy butters, oils, and plastics, I recommend doing a Curly Haircut with an Olaplex Treatment to alleviate the damage. Keep in mind, a one time treatment won't do the trick without a full Curly Haircut service.


Is a dry curly cut right for me?

If you wear your hair most of the time curly, a dry curly cut will help give your curls a beautiful shape to amplify your natural curls.


Are your prices the same for short curly hair as they are for longer curly hair?

Yes, the prices are the same no matter the hair length.


How long are appointments?

Haircut and treatment appointments are usually 1 to 3 hours long depending on the density, texture, porosity, and current state of the hair. Hair color appointments are 2 to 4 hours long or more.


How do I book a hair color appointment?

Hair color services are available only to existing clients. All of my clients have had their hair trained to be at its best and healthiest to undergo hair color with minimal damage. Healthy and beautiful hair will always be my first priority.


What is your availability?

I book appointments out ONLY 2 MONTHS at a time. For example, September and October, November and December, January and February, etc.

I am currently booked until JANUARY OF 2019. If you’re unable to book a service that is because I do not have enough time in my calendar to fit you in due to the time slot being booked already or I am not working. 

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: 

If you try to request an appointment that is outside of the 2 months that open on booking days (Ex: September and October open on booking day, but you request a January appointment) your request will be AUTOMATICALLY DENIED.

As a reminder, I do not take walk-ins, my services are by appointment only. I appreciate your understanding.


Do you have a waiting or cancellation list?

Yes! The waitlist is ONLY for new clients that DO NOT have a scheduled appointment. Please understand that this is a waitlist so it goes in order by the first in order, then second, etc.

Sign up for my waitlist by going to Vagaro:

How do I arrive for my appointment?

Please arrive with your hair freshly washed, fully detangled (there is a detangling fee if excessive detangling is necessary), fully dry, and with a minimal amount of light styling products (no oils or heavy butters) in your hair and worn in the wash and go fashion. 
If you are unsure of what a wash and go is, check out wash and go tutorials on YouTube.

Please wear your hair down with NO braids, buns, twist or braid outs, headbands, ponytails, updo styles, or any style that will alter your curl pattern.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO FOLLOW MY HAIR PREPARATION: 
I have the liberty to CANCEL and RESCHEDULE your appointment if the hair preparation is not followed as I have requested.


Should I do anything to my hair before my appointment day with you? 

Yes! I highly recommend detoxing your hair (meaning,clarifying your hair) if you are using any of the following product lines or products in your hair: 

Shea Moisture, Aussie, Cantu, Wen, Ecostyler, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, or any products with super heavy oils and butters in them. 

I recommend detoxing your hair at least 2 weeks before your appointment day. Doing so will help you achieve the best results for your wash and go styling service with me. 

Kinky Curly Come Clean Clarifying Shampoo or Malibu C Undoo Goo is great for detoxing your hair. 

Visit my 'Appointment Tips' section for more details on detoxing your hair.

I thought I booked an appointment online, but I did not receive a confirmation text or email?

If you DO NOT receive a confirmation, there is NO APPOINTMENT booked for you as that slot is no longer available. 
Thank you for understanding.

Thank you for understanding.


What happens if I have to reschedule or cancel my appointment?

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT:

If you have to reschedule or cancel your appointment time, you have forfeited your appointment time and you will have to wait to book your next appointment once the next available online booking date becomes available.

Please keep in mind that there is no guarantee of an opening for your rescheduled/cancelled appointment.  


What is Balayage highlighting?

Balayage highlighting is specially designed for your unique curls.
It involves sweeping on color or lightener (or both) to give you dimension in your hair.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE:

STARTING PRICES ARE A BASE PRICE FOR COLOR SERVICES. THE QUOTE FOR YOUR COLOR SERVICE WILL BE DETERMINED AT YOUR COLOR CONSULTATION. 
DEPENDING ON WHAT COLOR SERVICE YOU ARE GETTING DONE AND THE DENSITY AND TEXTURE OF YOUR HAIR, THE PRICE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

I APPRECIATE AND THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.


I’m trying to book online for a service but it isn’t allowing me to even though it says there’s a slot available?

The online booking scheduler allows booking depending on how long the service will be.
If it is not allowing you to book, please choose another day and/or time.

 


Do you offer consultations? 

For scheduled appointments, the consultation will be offered at the beginning of the service.


Do you do any other styles besides a wash and go?

No, I only do wash & go styling. I do not do twist outs, braid outs, “protective” styles, braids, blowouts, or flat ironing services.


Do you offer chemical services to make your client’s hair curly or straight?

I do not perform any chemical processes (relaxers, perms, keratin treatments, etc) that compromise the health of my client’s hair.


Are the curly haircuts transferable to straight hair?

As a curly hair specialist, I advise my clients to fully commit to the healthy hair and curly world.

The blow frying world isn’t worth the heat damage it creates for your beautiful curls. Heat styling compromises the health of your hair by over manipulating & dehydrating your curls.

If you desire to wear your hair curly most of the time, getting a curly cut is
going to give your hair the best shape. 
Some of you may notice that when you get a “straight hair” cut your curls
are not in the best shape when they worn in their natural state. 

The same goes for curly cuts, if you plan to transition back
to straight hair you may have some differences in the length due to the shrinkage factor of your hair.


How do I contact you about possible future collaborations or projects?

Please email kristyramoshair@gmail.com for requests. 

 


Do you offer education for stylists?

Yes, one-on-one classes are available and I also travel per request for stylists. Please email kristyramoshair@gmail.com for more information.


Do you offer services for children?

Are prices adjusted differently for children?

Yes, I offer my services for children 4 years old and up. Please keep in mind that if your child is unable to sit still or are extra tender-headed, they may not be ready for a service at this time.

Prices are the same for children and adults.
