My Curly Hair Experience at Salon 718

My Curly Hair Experience at Salon 718


Hello world! I need to get this addressed… this situation. And it was matting again. ANDREA: Oh, your hair? It doesn’t look like it right now! MAYA: ‘Cause I had to brush it out! If I leave it curly– ANDREA: Oh, then it mats… I wish mine was long enough that I
can just do that. ‘Cause I’m tired of like, the process. I’ve just been leaving it in a bun like
all the time now. Just like, bun it up. MAYA: Oh, that’s who we’re talking to right now. ANDREA: That’s me, hello. yeah, I just like, bun it up all the time. It’s drama. This–okay, this is the mullet. I’m here at salon 718, and the girl hooked me up and my mullet. Me and my curly mullet. See how long it is? In the back… in the back it’s really long– ANDREA: The back is really long–here. Yo, the back is like, crazy! The back is
really long and then the front is normal. MAYA: I just need her to deal with this. ANDREA: The back? MICHAELA: Well, you definitely have layers in there. MAYA: In the front. ANDREA: Her–she’s… the problem is the back. MAYA: The back is just a hot mess, when it’s like, curly. And I think it’s because I cut my own hair.
And I can never get to the back. MICHAELA: You’re right about that. ANDREA: So the problem is completely solved. MICHAELA: I’m gonna clean it up a little bit, try and balance it out
and just loosen it, so the curls are a little bit more carefree. ANDREA: And she says they keep matting. MICHAELA: Okay, we’re gonna do a really good conditioning treatment for that. Am I getting you? What’s up Michaela? MICHAELA: Alright, who wants to work with me? MAYA: Everyone’s like, running away. ANDREA: Too much hair, don’t care! MAYA: Yay! A volunteer! MICHAELA: Merri, she’s our treatment specialist. And I’m just gonna blend with you there, so it doesn’t feel so disconnected. MaYA: Oh, okay. That’s probably what it is– ANDREA: That’s probably the problem. MAYA: Yeah, it’s like… MICHAELA: Yeah, I feel like it’s 3 different hair cuts. So we’re
kind of just gonna make it… one and a half. I’m kidding. Just one hair cut. Well, what is happening also, is that you’re getting
a little bit of tail back here. So we’re gonna try and… ANDREA: That’s your mullet problem. MICHAELA: Get rid of this. Okay, so Merri and I were talking about what we think we’re gonna
use on your hair today. You wanna explain it to her? MERRI: We’re gonna use the Moroccan Oil repair shampoo,
and I’m gonna use their mask–the hydrating mask. And I’m gonna apply that, and you’re gonna sit
under the dryer for like, 5-10 minutes. MICHAELA: So real intense one–and then nice thing about Moroccan
oil is that it has no sulfates in it. And so it’s not drying on the hair. And it has
the aragan oil, which will help really penetrate in. ‘Cause on curly hair you just wanna keep it
really nice and moist on the ends. Alright? MAYA: Okay. MICHAELA: Voila! I don’t know the last time I went to a salon. I think it’s been like, 4 years or something. ANDREA: Whoa! MAYA: At least. ‘Cause I didn’t go in Vancouver. There’s no salon in Vancouver. And I didn’t go in Toronto, and I’ve been living
here for 2 years. Okay–so that’s at least… ANDREA: 4 years– MAYA: Five! ANDREA: That’s crazy. MAYA: Has it really been that long? And when I do go it’s only for like a blowout. Smells good. What is this stuff? MERRI: Moroccan oil. MAYA: Oh, okay. I only bought that little vial of like, you know that oil? Yeah. I’m like, $15?! For a little thing?! Oh yeah… this is soft. I’ll know by… 3 days, if it’s–it’s weird, it just started
matting! It’s like it turned into one giant dread. Yeah like, here it’s like weird and wiry. It’s not even like… I don’t even know what that is, that’s not a curl. So um… I just got back from London, from
a fabulous hair show–forecasting trends, and curly hair was big. MAYA: Curly hair is big! MICHAELA: Especially in London because there are just so
many mixed children. Or kids, or people. MAYA: Same with Toronto. Okay, everyone is mixed so everyone has curly hair. I think that’s probably why there’s this huge curly… craze.
It’s ’cause there’s just so many mixed people. On top of the other cultures that already have curly hair. MICHAELA: I mean, so many cultures are so mixed to begin with. And then you have, you know… So what’s your take on people cutting their own hair? MICHAELA: What’s my take on cutting your own hair…? Curly hair, you can definitely get away with it. Creative people can get away with it, ’cause it’s not just a haircut, it’s a whole look. It might not technically be correct; of course as hairdressers we wanna
go in there and make everything technically correct for you. I think when you get to that point, like you have right now, where you definitely feel like you need someone to look at it, you need to definitely do that. You need to let a professional kind of just balance it out for you. This is the Moroccan mousse… it’s our strongest hold hair product. I just applied it really on the front part, nice and spiraly.
And I’m just gonna twist them up a little bit. Oh, to… and you’re still gonna cut? Yeah, after we dry them. We’re gonna dry you and diffuse
you, then I’m gonna cut a little bit more. ANDREA: No more mullet, no more beaver tail. It’s perfect! It’s like… perfect curls. MAYA: The salon goes quiet. MICHAELA: The salon goes quiet as all the
pieces of curls drop to the floor. MAYA: I’m just like, oh my God what are you doing?! The way you’re cutting it! I’m just like… MICHAELA: Don’t try this at home, okay? All that’s it’s doing is releasing it doesn’t look so crowded. I’m like… you’re cutting IN! MICHAELA: I’m cutting IN! MAYA: My hair! It dropped to the ground! NO! I’m used to like, a lot more product. ANDREA: In your hair? MICHAELA: How does it feel? Does it feel like it’s sticking, or…? MAYA: No! It feels like there’s… not enough in it. I’m
so used to having like… you can FEEL that product. So what is this you’re spraying? MICHAELA: This is a different product line. It’s called
surface. And it’s a bassu shine spray. ANDREA: It’s Canadian! MICHAELA: It is! MAYA: Where can people get it? MICHAELA: Salon 718. What we can do if you want also, if they wanna
order that they can get 10% off on that product. Okay for the next month, 20% off any service,
or 10% off any product, except for keratin. MAYA: Okay, I have it recorded, so… ANDREA: Like, dye your hair black, Maya or is it– MAYA: No, this is just–I love it. MICHAELA: Yay, she loves it! MAYA: Yeah, see that back is so much better. ANDREA: Yeah now you have that beaver tail. MICHAELA: You see how little it was that we cut off? ANDREA: And look, the length’s still good. Oh, there we go! MAYA: There we go! There you go! Oh, she went colored and straight, I went curly and black! Watch out now!

  1. Omg that black girl look like the girl that was in cadet kelly as Hilary duff friend..I wonder if that is her

  2. do you know if they do more kinky textures cause i have that SAME problem with my hair – too long in the back and short in the frontkinda hair XC

  3. Morrocconoil represent!!! Love that stuff, also your hair is so stunning, I have baby fine 3b curls that frizz like hell without product and sometimes with product.

  4. That was a good cut. The way she cut your hair allowed your hair to get rid of the sections that added weight. She went inside the sections to remove some of the weight to help your hair to "breathe. " It no longer looks weighed down.

  5. Hate people that care so much about a hair cut, your hair will grow back. The only people that need to cry about an inch is FULLY blacks.

  6. i worked at that salon for a little, but it was too far for me to travel to everyday so i couldn't do it. love the hair

  7. This is like the third curly hair natural video I've come across today where I've seen someone let someone cut their natural hair in its natural state rather than having their hair straightened first so that you can see your strands clearly I've always been taught never to do this.

  8. I have a lot of shrinkage with my curls. I don't use heat a lot because I don't want damage, so maybe I need to find a good natural hair salon. To be honest Im afraid they're gonna mess up my hair.

  9. hey ladies, i've been trying to find out, what is the name of the hair cut or technique where your under layer is cut shorter than your outer layer. And I don't mean inversion haircut. Not the one with all the stacked layers on top of the head. I'm talking for long hair. My stylist back home does it and I can't find ANYONE anywhere who knows what it is.

  12. Ummmmm….Lady. The "curly" hair movement didn't start with MIXED RACED WOMEN.  It was originally the natural hair movement started BY KINKY/COILY HAIRED WOMEN WHO WERE OF MAJORITY BLACK AFRICAN ANCESTRY. You had some mixed raced women to come into the movement early in the movement, but yeah, the movement began because of BLACK WOMEN WHO WERE NOT HIGHLY ADMIXED WHO HAD KINKY/COILY HAIR TEXTURES. Thank you.

  13. 😍😍I wish I went natural when I was a little kid. I'm 13 and I just started appreciating natural hair, and I have locs. My hair type is exactly like yours, so I don't know why I hated my hair so much.
