More Than Curly® Salon was founded in May 2011, as Colorado’s only Chemical Free, natural Salon, by Melissa and Jason Vaz. The desire to open a multi-cultural, drama free, and peaceful Salon environment, that caters to the underserved needs of Curly clients was completely Melissa’s idea. Very soon after Melissa received her cosmetology license in 2008, she began looking for a Salon to work in, that specializes in Curly textured hair like hers. To her dismay, she found none.
In 2010, Melissa set out to advance her knowledge and education by venturing out to NYC, to obtain her Ouidad® Training and Certification. Melissa was personally trained by Ouidad herself in the Carve and Slice® cutting technique, but has advanced and built upon it greatly, to what we now call our “Curly Session”.
In 2011, Melissa returned to NYC to take part of the new Ouidad Train the Trainer pilot program, where she became the first Certified Ouidad Educator outside of the Ouidad Flagship Salon in NYC. Her education, Curly improvisation, and teaching experience, has set Melissa and the Staff at More Than Curly apart from any Curly Salon in the nation.
Since opening in 2011, More Than Curly® Salon has performed over 45,000 Curly services and counting, and continues to grow as the premiere Curly Salon in the Rocky Mountain region.
