I love going to the salon, like most women, but nothing makes me tootsie roll more than a salon that is attentive to my curly hair needs. Curltopia is that salon and more, and I had the great pleasure to return to Curltopia after they hosted the Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curl preview.
Curltopia is a multi-ethnic curly hair boutique salon that specializes in all textures under the sun. Whether you have wavy, curly, coily, kinky, transitioning, relaxed, or unrelaxed hair, they have a stylist perfect for you. Any service you can imagine is offered at Curltopia. A cut, Deva-cut, color, highlights, roller set, blowout, wash & go, two strand twist, flat-twists, roller-sets, lock maintenance, relaxers, and thermal straightening are just a sample of the services provided by Curltopia stylists. Every service comes with a shampoo, complimentary deep conditioning treatment, consultation, a prescription of hand-selected products specifically for your hair, and instructions on how to maintain your hair at home.
I particularly love the service provided at Curltopia. Ashli was my stylist for the day and she was very informative. During the service she made sure I was informed, comfortable, and asked questions about my hair and hair care routine. Ashli also explained what products she was using, why she was using them, and gave me a list of products and tips to maintain my hair on my own at home. Ashli was truly fabulous. It was nice to have a stylist who concentrated on me and my hair only, none of the rush and fuss I’ve normally encountered in the past at other salons. While I was sitting under the steamer, which is awesome and I need to purchase one by the way, I noticed every client got in and out. Also, there was no signs of double booking or over booking. I was impressed! Curltopia is definitely about customer service.
Many popular “natural” hair product lines are available at the salon. Miss Jessie’s and the Moroccan Oil line are just a few of the products they use and carry, and even if you aren’t getting serviced you can purchase the above products in the salon.
Culrtopia’s decor is extremely fabulous. The first time I stepped foot in the salon I was taken with the chandeliers and damask decor. If I could figure out how to steal their chairs, without going to jail, I would. In addition there is every magazine you could want in the salon. I caught up on Ebony, Cosmo, and Vogue during my service.
I received a wash, much needed and overdue cut, steam hydration treatment, and rod set the day of my Curltopia visit. Ashli whipped my curls into shape, and after sitting under the steamer I could tell the difference in my hair. I think for once my hair actually loved me. I loved my rod set and I received many compliments on it at the Bloggers Like Me meetup, more on that to come. Thanks so much Ashli, if you are reading this!
XOXO, Miss Foodie Fash!
