Hi there, my name is Shenara.

I am a curly hair specialist. My mission is to help your embrace your natural texture and wear it with confidence.

Check out the ‘About’ section for more information about me and what I can do for your beautiful curls!

I want to embrace my curls, but my hair is so frizzy! Where do I start?

As Lorraine Massey says, “Frizz is just a curl waiting to happen.” Chances are your hair simply needs a new hair care routine and hydration! I recommend reading her book Curly Girl: The Handbook for a start. It’s full of information for people wanting to learn how to embrace their curly hair. She created what is known as “The Curly Girl Method” that has taken the world by storm.

What is a curl specialist?

A curl specialist is a qualified hairdresser that specialises in cutting, colouring, washing and styling naturally curly hair. They work with your natural hair texture, instead of against it.

We never stop learning. Curl specialists and master colourists all over the world are constantly creating new techniques and offer education to those of us who are passionate about mastering our craft as curl specialists.

What is the Curly Girl Method?

The Curly Girl Method (CGM) is a popular approach to washing and styling naturally curly hair. For instance, the creator, Lorraine Massey encourages people to ditch ingredients such as sulfates, silicones and drying alcohols in order to get healthy, happy curls. She recommends only using products with water-soluble ingredients in order to get the full benefits of the CG Method.

Do I have to strictly follow the Curly Girl Method to have nice curls?

Only you can make that decision. I highly encourage you to begin your natural hair journey on the Curly Girl Method, and get to know your hair and then begin experimenting at your own pace to find what truly works for you. I do not believe that there is a one-size-fits-all approach, especially because no two heads of curls are alike, and neither are their hair needs and goals!

I love being able to offer my clients more options, rather than limit what you can or cannot do with your hair.
