Good day everyone!
Working with people day in and day out we discover many fascinating things that people are doing in their profession. Their passion for what they do is contagious and exciting!
When you start hearing stories of how people are transformed by what they are doing - it is something we want to share with the world of how they are contributing to making a difference in their region of the globe.
First mention is Colie Taico (click name for info). She is a therapist and specializes in a couple of areas including helping women heal their relationship with food.
If you are in Cultivate Your Curls she is in the section of how to get multiple day hair (of which has helped many people to relearn how to work with day 2-3-4 hair).
Colie works with clients one on one and is taking her years of experience and is creating an online course that will reach others that can not sit with her privately. Sign up HERE to get on her list.
She is also on...
Hairstylists - good day to you!
Our industry leads the way with teaching us about two ways to make money - and it starts out with Cosmetology School and is reinforced as you attend Trade Shows:
From this you can 'sell' products and heat tools to 'help' them at home to recreate your work.
From here we learn other options as we progress in our career to fill our schedule in the salon and make a paycheck:
Some of these are options that a client wants and desires.
But NOT every time.
And these options are expanding outside of traditional trade shows, cosmetology school and in salon trainings.
Beyond the limits of this antiquated business model are new opportunities that are not...
Good day everyone - what happens in about a week or two both in Curly Hair Artistry and also Cultivate Your Curls?
Let us give you a peek....
Did you see Danielle's quick Facebook Live about expanding on something we address in the online course Cultivate Your Curls about Options & Possibilities (O&P)?
It was powerful!
We shared an article that went out on Instagram about Scott Musgrave: Founder of Curly Hair Artistry from a leading salon publication (Modern Salon) that quoted him and also got a reply back from a salon we did a Live Training at in Raleigh NC that is excelling in their region from what they learned - check out this quote:
While we were in Portland Maine a local YouTuber Pete Talbot did a chat with Scott and it went viral with a fun run of local scenery, food and light houses:
This was the mention in Modern Salon that was shared by Scott on Instagram @scottmusgravehair:
Take a peek at our CHA Live Education Team - well, its sideways AND...
Looking at my clients hair - there are Four Stages of what I call Curl Rebound that affects how their hair will react, respond and adjust as the days progress from cutting their hair with Cubist Cutting (or your own method), our own styling in the salon with The MAP Method (or another method) and how they work with their hair once they are at home with their own routine:
1) After a cut
2) After salon styling
3) At home styling
4) Day 2-3-4-5
What fascinates me about social media (especially Instagram) with influencers and hairstylists show their hair right after SOTC (Scrunching Out The Crunch) and it looks amazing. What I want to see and DO see with The MAP Method is hair after LIVING LIFE many hours later.
I want to have a #challenge with members here in our circles in and out of Curly Hair Artistry to post your photos after YOU go home and style your hair. Does it look the same as when you left the salon?
Our wavy & curly hair is...
Good day everyone.
We have been on a quest for encouraging others to be the best they can be and we always wonder: what else can be done to help readers, participants and online members to reach their goals with their wavy/curly hair?
One member wanted to share that her hair health increased by changing to better products with ingredients that promoted healing such as Innersense Color Radiance Daily Conditioner. It has been amazing to see this conditioner transform so many heads of hair around the globe.
Another member shared that increasing her intake of zinc has helped with reducing hair shedding and falling out.
Scalp Massage, Biotin and a healthy diet has always helped many with keeping the follicle - under the scalp - stay healthy by keeping blood flow up to the scalp that stress, medicine or a clogged pore can hinder hair growth.
We are not medical doctors as many things that cause hair issues can be related to diet, stress, hereditary and hormones and...
Welcome to another update with Curly Hair Artistry,
We are so excited returning back from the recent 2019 Spring Symposium - check out this group photo:
I am always humbled that hairstylists sacrifice their time, energy and finances to attend a Curly Hair Artistry (CHA) Live Training.
A young lady from Brazil - near the Amazon, a stylist from Ireland, a young man from UK and stylists from around the USA including Texas, Portland Oregon and more....all to advance their level of understanding in building their own brand as a curly hair specialist.
The next training is in Maine - with information here as we still have a few spots open - click HERE.
Another observation is meeting those of you who attend our trainings as a model for us to work on who are also in Cultivate Your Curls with The MAP Method and word is getting out of how you are able to show up at CHA based salon with your hair set with MAP and just get a cut only as your styling is spot on and just need...
Good day everyone.
Just a note for you on what we are learning about taking care of yourself that goes along with caring for your wavy/curly hair.
Self Care is so important.
It is part of my own personal vocabulary to understand myself better as 'self care' was not really on my radar. Over time it just faded away and I was wondering why I wanted to check out or even just give up at times.
Maybe you can relate - or if you are on a path of self care now then reply back with how you are caring for yourself with tips that can be used in another blog for helping others in the near future.
As a curly hair specialist - or as other people in service industries do with always putting other people above themselves - can lead to burn out or a sense of not caring anymore - it's so important to learn to step back and learn to find things to renew yourself so that you remain passionate to continue - not just for others- but for an invigorating LIFE.
I learned to time block...
Good day everyone.
When people come into my studio or attend one of my live trainings they discover quickly that I am an introvert.
Because I am found online, or that I have a social media presence, create videos or speak in front of others they think that I am an Extrovert.
When I started my online presence I was behind the computer writing. I failed English twice and even went to Summer school to make sure I moved on to the next grade - so, for me to write and get found in searches for help is amazing in of itself. It proves that if I can risk putting myself out there with my failed background....so can you.
What happened over time as people read my blogs and business Facebook page providing free content is that I was asked by other hairstylists to teach my methods to help them with their business and so I started what is now called Curly Hair Artistry.
When I was building up to that first live training my stomach was in knots, my emotions were all over the...
Perfection is Boring.
I was a photographer and did my own #blackandwhitefilm development and printing.
#richardavedon impacted my art with his journey and I was inspired to take this photo after not shaving for 4 days, I refreshed my hair with who knows what and I don’t care how I look. What is not shown in the photo is what is going on in my soul - as I was going through a change of perspective based on changing how I am doing my business. Parts of my soul was in pain and the other parts were excited and yet I was transitioning to uncertainty and there was no path for me to follow....I had to forge ahead and create a path on my own.
My friend @danielleduran_curls (Instagram) came up with the quote “Perfection is Boring” and I thought that this is kinda like getting a tattoo in that you don’t care what other people think...you do it for yourself.
When your hair heals and becomes healthy over time you can let go of ‘perfection’...
