Beauty Find: Miss Jessie's Salon

I love my natural curls and I wouldn’t permanently straighten my hair if you paid me. That said, I wish my curls would hang longer. My hair looks 60% shorter than it actually is when dry. I also want my hair to be softer and more hydrated (curly hair tends to be dry). I had to find some curl experts.

Enter Titi and Miko of Miss Jessie’s salon (formerly Curve Salon). Titi and Miko are like me, mixed heritage and mixed hair. They’ve dedicated themselves to finding solutions for curly girls of all types and backgrounds.

To solve my main problems the sisters suggested a process and a product. Shingling stretches curls out so they hang longer yet makes the hair touchable and healthy. They gave me a great cut to begin the process.. Shingling involves taking small sections of hair (constantly hydrated) and combing through their special product Curly Pudding for a strand by strand smooth finish.

After an hour under the dryer and a quick session with a blow dryer, I had the most beautiful head of curls I’d ever had in my life. Titi and Miko assured me that Curly Pudding isn’t just a salon product. It’s possible to get similar results at home, luckily, they have directions up on the website.

Curly Pudding also works for quick finger styling. If you find a few fly-away hairs or frizzy bits after the first day, use Curly Buttercreme. This will keep your locks hydrated and put those errant hairs back in place promoting growth by minimizing breakage. Curly Meringue works similarly to the Pudding, but has more boost.

Find the directions for Shingling and a number of other styles and techniques for curly hair on the Miss Jessie’s website. Order some their great product; you won’t regret it. Even better- if you can get to the salon, do so.
