Each stylist ranges in price and availability.
Stylist In Training
Stylists in Training are licensed with the State of Minnesota but are still working to complete our 8-week Curly Cut training program. Cuts from these stylists are designed to give experience to our trainees and are offered at a lower cost to you. Each cut will be supervised by a Senior Stylist.

At this level the stylist is a Cosmetology School Graduate with their State of MN License and has taken our 8 week Curl Salon Cirriculum. Although they may be in the beauty industry for while, they are new to curly hair. They are available to do basic cuts and color. All color consultations will be a collaboration with your stylist and an elder stylist to ensure appropriate color formulation and technique. Following your appointment the owner may send the client a brief survey pertaining to their experience. Honest feedback is essential for the stylist’s growth.
Level 2 | Curl Expert
A Curl Expert has acquired a great amount of experience with all aspects of hair and communication. They are problem solvers, well educated, educators, mentors and experienced enough to achieve more advanced color techniques, color corrections, cuts and styles. They also have an extensive clientele.
Level 3 | Curl Director
A Director stylist has the largest demand for their time behind the chair. They have an advanced level of education and are phenomenal communicators. At this point in their career they are booked for several weeks in advance. They are exceptional professionals who inspire and educate their teammates and clients.
