Care for Your Curls with DevaCurl at Rumors Salon

By  0 Comments

Curly hair can have more twists and turns than a precarious road in the Alps. Bends and curves lie this way and that. Yet, for all of those coils, curly hair is fragile and delicate. It must be treated with kid gloves or the result is a head full of frizz. If you’re a curly girl in desperate need of help, turn to Rumors Salon, in the Hawthorne Plaza, Overland Park, Kansas.

“Rumors is the answer to a curly girl’s prayer. Nearly a third of our clientele is curly-haired, and we’ve done very well with this service,” noted Andrea Blea, owner, Rumors Salon. “With curly hair, there are different textures and densities, but it falls into four major types of hair: super-curly; curly; wavy; and swavy, natural movement but not straight. It can be fine or coarse, and many times it lacks moisture. The different curl patterns dictate how you’ll work with the hair.”

DevaCurl Perfection
Unfortunately, curly girls have discovered that not every stylist is trained to cope with the unique needs of curly hair. But Rumors Salon offers highly trained stylists to help with cuts, color and everything in between. In fact, they rely on DevaCurl™ techniques, processes and products to meet the needs of their curly-haired customers.

“DevaCurl is a great line and certification for us. In fact, it’s the best of the best for curly girls, with decades of experience servicing men and women with curly hair. Twenty years ago, DevaCurl began as a salon in New York City, focused only on transforming curls one client at a time,” shared Andrea. “Curly-haired girls don’t have many places to go for their curly hair. No one shows them how to work with those waves and bends in their hair shafts. Many times they simply don’t understand their curly hair until we educate them through the DevaCurl process.”

DevaCurl makes multitudes of products to support curly-girl hair care needs. According to Andrea, it is very important to use the product properly and layer it into the hair. The basics include a foundation product, setting product, moisture product and something to hold the hair in place. The line features silicone-, paraben- and sulfate-free products and easy-to-use tools. From the original creations of No-Poo, which doesn’t lather like regular shampoo, and One Condition to newer offerings such as SuperCream Coconut Curl Styler, the DevaCurl product roster helps wavy, swavy, curly and super-curly heads become healthy and look beautiful. Rumors Salon is stocked with many DevaCurl products to bring out the best in your locks.

Educated Curl Experts
Andrea points with pride to the fact that her stylists are highly educated in DevaCurl cutting and styling techniques. Stylists can take DevaCurl courses, but they’re not certified until reaching level three in the training. Rumors Salon has the only DevaCurl-certified level three stylist in the KC-metro.

“Stylists can’t cut curly hair like they do straight hair with geometric shaping. Curly hair already has its shape due to the placement of the hair on the head. You can’t pull it straight from the head and cut it because of the waves or curls. You have to cut it where it lies to create the layer as it naturally falls on the head. It’s a free-form haircut that’s very visual for the stylists to design and complete. That’s why learning the DevaCurl method is so important. We can cut, style, treat and color curly hair for any group and at any age.”

To help you maneuver the many curves and waves of your locks, Rumors Salon offers a free, 15- to 30-minute consultation, and Andrea notes that for DevaCurl it’s an absolute must. “Figuring out your curly hair type can be challenging. But here at Rumors Salon, we’re skilled at helping you make the most of your gorgeous curls and to support your hair care needs. Everything we do for your hair will be based on this consultation,” she shared. “We’re working with you to figure out the right service, the right products and the right look for your lifestyle.”

Client Convenience
Curly-haired girls are not only dealing with hair that can be a bit on the wild side but crazy schedules with work, family and kids. Rumors Salon can accommodate the busiest schedule by offering convenient times for you. Hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.; Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Andrea notes that stylists can come in early or stay late if arranged in advance.
