Curly Hair Minneapolis


PARKING? No problem.... parking lot behind the building on 34th


Q: Are all the stylists skilled at cutting curly hair?

A: Yes. As the first salon in Minnesota (and maybe all of the Midwest) to specialize in curly hair, all of our stylists are trained in cutting and coloring curly hair. Please note:  ”Curly Cuts” and “Deva Cuts” are both done on dry hair.  A Curly Cut is done by an apprentice, and a Deva Cut is done by a stylist who has had Deva training, and is, therefore, Deva inspired. Currently we have 3 Deva Inspired stylists. For further information, please contact the salon.

Q: Does the stylist cut curly hair while it’s dry?

A: Yes.

Q: Will the stylist see me for a consultation before a curly cut?

A: Yes, consultations are complimentary and required. They can be booked as a stand alone appointment or with a curly cut or color.

Q. What products does the salon use?

A: For curly hair, we highly recommend Deva, but do have an alternative product such as Mop Top, and innersense. For more product information, please ask your stylist.
 

Q: How do I schedule a consultation?

A: You can book any salon appointment by clicking our "Book Now" button or calling (612) 729-4415

 

Q: What should I expect on my first visit.

A: For starters, you can expect a cup of hot tea and a pleasant experience, and to learn how to properly care for your curls. We are here to do our absolute best to ensure that happens. Expect to answer a lot of questions about your hair, the challenges you’re facing, and where you would like your hair to be today and in a few months from now. Unfortunately, getting healthy curls does not happen overnight. It is a process that takes time and deliberation (and is totally worth it in the end). You can, however, expect to leave with beautiful curls that you’ve likely never seen before!


As a courtesy, we ask that you give a 24 hour notice of cancellation, so that others may book an appointment. Our prices are set at a base price and if we use extra color or takes us more time that what is allotted, then we will haave to charge more, If you no show no call we have the right to either have you prepay or refuse service, as this is disrespectful to us.

Curly Hair FAQ's

 
Q:  What is the difference between a Curly Cut and a Deva Cut?

A: Both cuts are done on dry hair.  A Curly Cut is done by an apprentice, and a Deva Cut is done by a stylist who has had Deva training, and is, therefore, Deva Inspired.

Q: What will a Curly/Deva Cut do that a traditional wet cut won’t?

A: Cutting curly hair dry allows the stylist to cut each curl in its natural state. This technique is especially beneficial for those who have different curl textures throughout the hair.

Q: Will a Curly Cut/Deva Cut make my hair curlier?

A: No. The cut itself does not affect how the hair grows from the scalp.

Q:  What if I wear my curly hair straight from time to time? Can I still have a curly cut? 

A: Yes, if you do occasionally wear your curls straight, let your stylist know, and she will make the correct adjustments in terms of technique and product recommendations.

Q: My hair is curly/wavy, but I don’t ever wear it in its natural state. Do I have to have a dry curly cut?

A: No. The focus of our salon is to serve the needs of the client, always. If you are most comfortable wearing your curls straightened or smoothed, we will be happy to accommodate that. And if you ever decide to try a natural curl/wave, we will be happy to work with that as well. At the end of the day, it is about your comfort, satisfaction,  

Curly Hair Issues

  

Accept your curls, don't fight them 

Hairstyle trends come and go, as does the perceived stylishness of curly hair. Those blessed with curly hair too often try to conform by having their hair straightened, or otherwise treated like straight hair. Be proud of your curls. Following are some problems encountered in treating curly hair both at salons and at home. 

Straightening curly can hair damage it See before and after photos on our Instagram page. Blowouts, flat irons, and any of the numerous straightening techniques are temporary and inevitably leading to  to weak curls,or straightened ends with damaged, frizzy hair. 

Chemicals and detergents that damage A variety of haircare products, both regular and curly hair-specific, can damage your curly hair.  Shampoos for general use are among the worst culprits, containing sulfates (sodium lauryl sulfate or ammonium lauryl / laureth sulfate, for instance.) These are formulated to clean hair as thoroughly as possible, and in so doing make curly hair dry and frizzy. Curly hair can contain less natural oil and these products can strip away what oil is there, dehydrating and damaging hair. 

Relaxers, keratins and Brazilian blowouts coat the hair, temporarily relieving frizziness but in the long run damaging the curl formation. 

Combs straightens curls, not style it Combs can weaken the curl if you have swavy, wavy, and botticelli curls.  

Humidity, dewpoint and your hair. Minnesota's environment is among the most challenging for those with curly hair. A wide range of temperatures, humidity and dew points create vastly different conditions to which your curly hair will react. Dew point is the most accurate measure of moisture content in the air and curly hair reacts dramatically to this moisture in the air. For optimal control, before taking a shower find out what the dew point will be for the day. When conditions are dry, as in the winter, and the dew point is low (30 and under), use a richer, thicker conditioners. When it is high (60 and over), conditioners containing humectants, examples being glycerin, honey, propylene glycol, and panthenol/vitamin B5. Ask your stylist about the best products for your hair relative to seasons and other conditions. Two good online articles that expand on this issue are at Curly Nikki and Naturally Curly

The coolest app is from Naturally curly.  This app is  called  Frizz Forcaster in which you put in your zip code, and hair type. The app will then tell you the dew point, humidity, and what products you should use. A combination of styling and care will make your curly hair prettier, healthier and more controllable. With curly hair there will be some degree of frizziness. If optimized it can give curly hair more volume and texture. Each individual case is unique. Twisted Hare takes a holistic approach to each client's curly hair, offering in-salon treatments, products and recommendations to optimize the health and appearance of curly hair. 

About us

Time to Embrace Your Curls....

 Where curly hair makes sense for a change.


In September 1 2017, we  moved to 3401 Nicollet Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55408. Since 2006 we were the first in the Twin Cities to specialize in curly hair, East 42nd Street Salon is now Twisted Hare.   

East 42nd Street Salon, named from a previous addres caused alot of confusion for all the new curly clients that would drive to 42nd and Nicollet because of the salon name. This prompted the name change to Twisted Hare Salon.  We will have the same great service and expertise with a twist in the name to fit the style of the salon while remaining true to our focus on curly hair.  

When you walk through the doors of Twisted Hare, your eyes are drawn to the Alice In Wonderland theme. With mirrors that look like you can walk right through to Wonderland and teacup chandeliers, you may feel like you are about to embark on a journey to a fairytale wonderland! “I love the play on words with our new name, which incorporates our curly hair focus and our Alice and Wonderland theme,” says owner.  

Ask most curly girls, and they will tell you how hard it is to find a place that understands and can cut curly hair. They do not teach you how to cut curly hair in beauty school so Twisted Hare has filled the need of the Twin Cities area and beyond. The salon has clients who come from North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Canada and even a client from South Korea.  

Curly hair is as individual as people are, come to Twisted Hare Salon and Spa to see what works for your gorgeous curls! A Plus is that we have a parking lot behind the building.
