NEW CURLY GUEST EXPERIENCE
Welcome ! This is our favorite service at Curls And Co! Don’t think that this is some regular haircut because it most definitely is NOT. This is THE curly experience!
You and your chosen curly technician will sit down face to face and dive into the world of curls. Our main job is to help simplify your routine but also help you to understand how your curls function.
Once we understand your curly goals and needs, we can then perform our dry curl by curl cutting technique. Following up with a detoxifying shampoo and the revitalizing scalp treatment.
Next we will do our best to demonstrate and educate you on how to style your new curly haircut. Photos documenting your curly journey will also be added into your profile.
This service was created by Kelly Nicole’s original curly clientele and is the core to Curls And Co salon. It is a must for all new clients and it truly allows us to get to know you and your curls.

CURLYAGE AND COLORING
This is our own in-salon technique for lightening curly hair. We can create many different looks using this specialty technique. It is all about the blending of the roots into the lighter pieces, creating a soft and slow grow-out for our curly clients.
Kelly Nicole would describe curlyage as a blend between babylights, balayage, and traditional foils. We use Eufora aloe-based lightener and hair color. It is rare that we feel the need to add a bond builder/reconstructor, but for those curlies that want extra protection, we have that too.
CURLYAGE AND COLORING Frequently Asked Questions
Do you use foils?
Do you use heat?
What about toner?
Toner is included in our pricing along with complimentary styling under the hooded dryers.
Is it Ammonia free?
We do offer 100% ammonia free color as well with extremely low ammonia. At Curls And Co it is our priority to keep not only our guests safe but our stylists as well.
What about damage?
Keeping the integrity of your fragile curls is our top concern. Please come in and allow us to do a strand test.
What is a strand test?
We snip off a few curls, and we color and lighten them. We are checking for porosity, damage, and how the pigments shift within the strands. We can then give you an exact quote and time frame to reach your color goals. We don’t like surprises either.
How do I go about getting a test strand done?
Stop in and we will trim a couple of curls and off you go or mail us some curls. We will let you know the results.
CURL HYDRATION TREATMENTS
Yes, yes, and just YES.
We truly care about you and your lifestyle. Ask our clients how easy and manageable the curls become once they are truly hydrated. That is when we reach the ultimate success within our curly journeys. Nothing is “deeply conditioned” unless multiple layers of cuticles are opened and ready to receive the nutrients.
Most deep conditioners are full of residues that remain on the hair and PREVENT hydration from penetrating your curly strands. We offer treatments at a very affordable rate to you as this is such an important concept for curlies in SW Florida.
CURL HYDRATION TREATMENT Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of treatments do you offer?
Steam treatments, protein, hydration, bond reconstructors, shine/gloss treatments, detox, and more!
Can I do them at home?
Yes! Clarify with Malibu C’s Un-Go-Goo, towel dry, apply Malibu’s conditioning mask of choice, cover curls with a shower cap, and sit under constant heat for a minimum of 20 minutes, rinse with cool water and style with your favorite Eufora styling products.
What is the steam treatment?
The ultimate flush of impurities. Using distilled water, micro mist, and infrared technology, we will push out any impurities from the hair and scalp. This will give instant relief from itchy dry scalp and allow the hair to fully absorb the nutrients of your products. We highly recommend the steam treatment with every visit.
How do I know which one to do?
Most likely you won’t choose a “wrong” treatment because there is no such thing as a bad deep conditioning treatment. Your curl tech will also help advise you.
