Have Bouncy Curls? Curly Hair Salons in Nashville

When choosing a new one, you need to select a curly hair salon stylist carefully.

But how do you choose a curly hair stylist as opposed to a natural hairstylist?

The following questions will assist you with weeding out those curly hair salons and stylists who cannot meet your needs or fulfill the desires you have for your hair:

  • What are your areas of expertise?
  • Where did you train?
  • What curl pattern does my hair have?
  • How do you cut curly hair?
  • Is it wrong to straighten my hair?
  • What products go best with my hair’s texture, color, and needs?

Stylists and hairdressers should cut your curly hair in layers to avoid giving you the “triangle-head.”

The layered cut will evenly distribute volume about your head as well. But if your stylist does not cut your hair in layers, it will cause the top of your head to look flat while the remainder of your hair will look voluminous, thereby making you look like a triangle or pyramid.

The stylist should not cut the hair around your face the same length as the hair in the back as you want your curls to “frame” your face with a bit shorter cut in front.

The stylist should also cut layers from the top and from the front to the back. They will know that these two types of combined layers will look fantastic for your curls.

Braids and Weaves, Weaves and Braids: Braiding Hair Salons

From braids to beads, and from weaves to hair extensions, these braiding hair salons in Nashville do it all: Rockin' Braids Salon and Nya’s Natural Braiding and Beauty Salon.

Braiding is said to be bad for your hair, or is that only when someone braids your hair incorrectly? Hair extensions are said to be bad for your hair, or is that only if they get put in wrong?

These questions and more besides are essential to ask your braiding hair salon stylist, as are the following:

  • How is the health of my hair and scalp?
  • To maintain this look, when should I schedule my next appointment?
  • When it comes to braids, how tight is too tight?
  • What types of braiding styles can you do?
  • What are the best beauty and hair products out there to achieve the look I want?

There you have it. If you are in Nashville, make sure to ask the appropriate questions from the list above at any of the salons as mentioned earlier, and you are sure to choose the best salon for your hair needs, thereby avoiding going to the wrong one.

You want to walk out the door feeling fabulous, and that is only possible with the best of the best salons.
