Are you a natural hair stylist?
It's difficult finding stylists who know how to cut your hair. Not only that, but being able to style your hair outside of just cornrows as there are more styles that can be accomplished on [natural] hair. Couple that with BEING natural, and you have an added difficulty as many stylists are trained to cut and style STRAIGHT hair. In recent years, many institutes(Aveda, Jonathan Storch Curly Hair Institute, etc.) have implemented programs that train stylists to cut naturally curly hair, but searching for good stylists remains a challenge.
Here's what I'd like to do. If you're a natural stylist, or one who specializes in not only cutting curly/highly textured hair that ranges in curl, but STYLING natural hair, I want you to get in contact with me so that you can be featured to my readers. We need to know where you are so that when the time comes, and we're in need of your services, we don't have to go searching for a needle in the haystack. While there are resources that list natural salons, they don't necessarily LIST their stylists(and there work) and just because you work with naturally curly hair doesn't mean you're good at it. The same applies to those who DON'T work with natural hair. Just because you have a license to style hair, doesn't mean you're good at it. I know some of you have stylist horror stories that can confirm that statement. LOL!
So if you're good and KNOW that you're good, I want to hear from you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
