The staff at More Than Curly® Salon are not only Colorado licensed professionals, but lovers of natural hair, passionate about curly hair, committed to curly satisfaction, and will only offer the best advice, education and services for you or your child’s hair.
Q: How does More Than Curly® have the Best Curl Stylists in the Rocky Mountain Region?
A: Curly and Kinky Hair is all we do. It’s about the “shear” volume of various curl patterns we see, repetition, and practice. We are the busiest Curly Salon in the Region, as well as the largest volume retailer of Ouidad® and Moroccanoil® haircare products as a Salon. Experience really does matter when it comes to cutting Curly Hair, and recommending the proper product application.
Currently with only 3 Curl Specialists at our Lone Tree location, and an Affiliate Curl Specialist in Arvada, More Than Curly® sees on average over 200 Curly Cuts per month. That’s over 2,000 Curly Cuts on average per year. Other “Curl Experts” may have specific training, but do not see the volume and wide range of curl patterns that we see each day since 2011. Experience does matter.
The More Than Curly® staff as part of the Ouidad Advisory Board of Stylists, work together each day as a team, sharing ideas, techniques and experience to ensure that each client receives the best possible Curly Care, and education during each visit.
You will not find any Chemical treatments at More Than Curly® Salon, that alter your beloved Curl Pattern. Our philosophy is: “If you want to straighten your natural curls to oblivion, we are not the Salon for you.”
Our founder is Salon owner Melissa Vaz, who introduced the Ouidad Carve and Slice® to the Front Range of Colorado while working at Salon Bodhi in 2010. On her own, Melissa has since greatly expanded and advanced the Ouidad cutting method, to include a much broader spectrum of service, for a broader spectrum of curl patterns. We call her technique, Curly Cut Sessions™ and Kinky Sessions™. Each stylist who serves at More Than Curly, has over 30 days of Curly Cutting and Kinky Session training by Melissa, before being released to the floor.
Melissa also became Colorado’s first Ouidad Certified Educator in 2011, has personally trained and helped launch the Curly Careers of 11 Colorado Natural Hair Stylists here in Colorado, one in Houston, TX.
Because Natural Curly Hair techniques are not taught in Cosmetology Schools, our Exclusive Natural Hair Apprenticeship Program, allows for passionate Curly Stylists to be trained in our 4 week Curly program (not 2 days with the standard Ouidad® Certification programs) personally by Melissa. This also allows clients to be seen by a capable licensed stylist, under the direct training and supervision of Salon owner and Curl Expert® Melissa Vaz.
Whether you need a curly cut, color, a natural style, or combination, our staff will work together for you, and with you to bring out the best Curly YOU.
