FAQs

When are you available?

It changes from week to week in New York but in Montreal I send out the dates by newsletter only.

Do I need an appointment to come?

Yes, I do not take walk ins.

Can I get a consultation?

Yes, it's $ 25 for a consultation without getting your hair done, otherwise it is free with all services.

What is the minimum age at which children can come to have their hair done ?

There is no minimum age!

Do you sell products?

I don't at the moment in New York, but I do sell Karen's Body Beautiful and Nubian Kinks in Montreal.

The hairstyles last how long in general?

They last from one to three weeks depending on the style.

Should I wash my hair before coming?

No need to, the wash is included in all services !!

Do you do Big Chops?

Yes I do! However I'm not a barber so I don't do line ups/fades.

How much time should I set aside for my appointment?

Put 1 to 4 hours aside. Working with natural hair can sometimes take a long time depending on how many services you choose.

Do you relax natural hair? What about extensions? Sisterlocks??

I don't, but I can give you references!

What technique do you use when you cut natural hair?

I cut wet or dry depending on the client's texture. When it's dry, I stretch the hair with a dryer that has a comb attachment just before cutting it.

Will I learn to keep my hair?

Yes, I recommend products and methods for daily maintenance.

Can I come if I'm transitioning?

Absolutely! I facilitate the process as much as possible by providing a system and guidance for your transition.

What technique do you use when you straighten natural hair?

I stretch your hair with a dryer with a comb attachment and I silk it with a flat iron. This style can last two weeks with the necessary maintenance. I don't recommend this service in the Montreal or New York summers, because it lasts less longer because of the high humidity.

I've been transitioning for X months and my newgrowth is very nappy, but I still have a good length of hair relaxed. Do I have to do the big chop?

If you feel capable to maintain the two textures and you absolutely want to keep your length, you can definitely make a long transition.

Can the '' definition/wash & go '' really turn my frizzy hair into defined curls?

It's possible! It can with the exception of textures with a "z" formation. However I can only confirm if it's possible after seeing and touching your hair. This style lasts one week in general.
