Unruly curls are one of the most common causes of bad hair days, especially during a steamy mid-Atlantic summer.
For one month during the summer, Bella Bethesda offers free 30-minute one-on-one consultations for curly-headed clients. Along with a free shampoo and styling session, customers can save 10 percent off on products purchased during the appointment. StylistMegan Atkinson notes that the salon also offers more permanent solutions to tame
curls, including keratin treatments and Japanese straightening processes.
Grante notes that those with curly hair should be especially vigilant during a consultation or appointment. “Astylist needs to recognize that length shrinks when the hair is dry. If you start to feel uncomfortable with the length, make sure to speak up,” he notes. “Mention to the stylist if you notice that he or she is applying inconsistent tension to the curls when cutting the hair. . . that is another sign the hairmay be cut too short for curly-haired clients who like to wear their hair natural.”
