Advanced training in the art, method, technique & business of wavy/curly hair.

What happens in a week or two with Curly Hair Artistry?

Good day everyone - what happens in about a week or two both in Curly Hair Artistry and also Cultivate Your Curls

A LOT!

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:

Subjective Experience vs Objective Truth.

As a teacher I am fascinated with how other teachers fill their students minds with the curriculum or area of interest and I realized that some teachers teach a perspective that they personally learned about - which is called a Subjective Experience but they are teaching it as an Objective Truth

When you experience something and it works for you and you share it as a way of working for everyone else - you are a bit misguided in how to instruct others. 

If you share your experience as 'truth' for others it can become confusing to many of your students as what you are teaching is not applicable to everyone but they feel as though they are out of your 'club' by not agreeing with it or it just does not work for them. I have heard that people in those circles are shamed or belittled by 'not trying hard enough' or 'not doing it right'. 

Instead of the teacher saying, 'This is not applicable to you." - their students are made to feel as though they are doing something...

Wave & Curl Rebound

Hello everyone!

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...

What Do You Need For Healthy Curly Hair?

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...

Passion & Sacrifice Leads To Success

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...

Learning about Self Care through Wavy & Curly Hair.

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...

Can Hair Be Extroverted or Introverted?

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...

Wavy Hair - Cultivate Your Curls

There was a great question that popped up in our Cultivate Your Curls private Facebook community and wanted to share it with you for your consideration and learning of what is possible for your own wavy/curly hair. 

Celeste asked me a great question: 

Scott Musgrave I hope you are doing okay through Florence. I don't expect an answer right away, I'm not sure if you have power... Anyway, I've been curious about something. You mention that you can use the same 4 products one very client and have good results. I'm sure you also do this for yourself, and I'm wondering if the products ever stop working for you? Do you have to rotate any of them? It seems like I have great results with new products for a week or two and then it goes down hill. I detox and still have problems. I think it might be my protein/moisture balance. I could probably use a good non-protein filler. I just got LHDC for a non-protein conditioner. Curious on your thoughts? You mentioned we have similar hair...

How Do You See Yourself?

As I work with my clients in my chair and on my online course Cultivate Your Curls w/ The MAP Method I realize the journey many of us are on and find it fascinating what we can pursue what is reality based or fantasy based....or even more. We are putting our energy into 'something' and the goal of this article is to see what we are doing is contributing to something that is of value. 

Lets take a peek at what resides in our being - this is based on a writing example I learned years ago: 

There are four levels of an individual self:

The Public Self: This is the level that you communicate to the world. 

The Private Self: This is the emotional and internal world of an individual. 

The Fantasy Self: This level is where daydreams, night dreams and fantasies reside. 

The Ideal Self: This fourth and final level of self wants perfection.
