At Lofty We Understand The Challenges
Of Curly Hair!
More and more women are embracing their curls and eagerly allowing their hair to run free. You don’t have to be a prisoner of your own hair. Curly hair has a language all its own. It is beautiful, sexy, mysterious, and unpredictable; but, given the right cut, it will flow more naturally. Everyone with curly hair has the potential to enhance their overall look without resorting to harsh chemical hair straighteners or excessive use of a flat iron. Once you experience a great curly haircut and learn the proper techniques for curly styling, you will embrace your curly hair and feel confident that you can maintain a style that will get you rave reviews.

I am often asked what my secret is when it comes to achieving a great cut for curly hair. It has taken me years to develop what I call the Diamond Technique. Where most people encounter problems with cutting curly hair is a flatter top and a bell shaped bottom. With the Diamond Technique, I can give you fullness in the crown without sacrificing length around the face. The bell shape bottom is eliminated and you achieve an even curl from the top down. My Diamond Technique is applicable to every type of curly hair unlike other popular curly hair cutting techniques. Each head of curly hair is unique. I take into account every aspect specific to your hair and discuss them with you before I make a single cut. What I hear repeatedly from clients of other techniques is that once they leave the salon, they immediately go home and wash their hair because they are dissatisfied with the finished style. Any new cut needs to be dried to its natural curl. This is the only way to see the proper shape and balance of the cut. If you follow my Curly Hair Styling Tips below, you will be able to recreate a fabulous salon style at home.
Beautiful curly hair should be “worn” curly. When the curl is frizzy or cannot be controlled by professional products then I recommend a frizz reduction treatment. We offer several options at Lofty for controlling unruly curly hair including the latest Keratin Fusion Control Treatment. I am always happy to discuss the options with my clients during a personalized consultation.

Lofty specializes in Keratin Fusion Control Treatments
Benefits of Keratin Fusion Control Treatments
Keratin Fusion Texture Control uses pure human hair keratin amino acids to control processing. It contains no formaldehyde, thioglycerides, or other hazardous ingredients. Other straighteners, smoothers, and relaxers use sodium hydroxide and formaldehyde which can damage hair and also emit fumes that are potentially hazardous to humans if not properly ventilated. Keratin Fusion uses a proprietary blend of cysteamine and pure keratin protein to temporarily change your hair’s texture without any potential health risk. The effects of the treatment last about 3 to 4 months.
Oh My GOD! I came in on Friday to get my hair cut by Mona. This is the BEST BEST BEST hair cut I have ever had!!!! EVER!!! I am SO in love with it! She did EXACTLY what I wanted; nothing more, nothing less, I have NEVER been so happy with a hair cut, as it is usually a disaster with the curly head of hair I have… You now have a life time customer… I can tell you that Mona is a wonderful stylist! She rocks!!! I can’t wait to see her again in a couple of months!!! YAY!!!!
I have struggled with my (3B) curly hair since childhood; common story here, I suppose! Finding someone who understands curly hair and can cut it has been a challenge. Usually I end up asking other people with curly hair who their stylist is and that is how I found Mona. We had recently moved to Northern Virginia and I had put up with a stylist, who did NOT understand curly hair, for too long. Two years later, Mona has always taken her time to find out what is working for me and what is not. She goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I am happy with my hair and it fits my lifestyle. I feel like the products she has recommended really work with my hair. If I was unsatisfied I am certain that Mona would do whatever she could to make things right. She listens to what I am saying, offers good suggestions and never takes artistic license. I appreciate Mona’s expertise, her ethics and her commitment to her customers. I highly recommend Mona at Lofty Salon.

I’ve struggled with my curly, frizzy hair all my life. I didn’t have nice beautiful curls that looked good naturally, so I always blew it out straight. Unfortunately, once I left the house, I never knew what my hair would look like in an hour; particularly if there was the slightest bit of humidity in the air. Since Mona applied a Keratin Treatment, my hair looks good in spite of the weather! I can get through a workout at the gym, run out in the rain, or even spend a day at the beach with no frizz! I have to say this is one of the best beauty investments I have ever made.
I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how much I LOVE the results of the Keratin Treatment! You did a fantastic job and I couldn’t be happier. My hair is straighter, easy to blow dry, still has volume, and stays in control even with the summer humidity. Thank you so much for recommending it. I’ll be back for another treatment in a few months.
I have very thick, curly hair. Before, I would never wear it down because it was so frizzy, but now I wear it down more often than not. I had never been able to manage it until I came to Lofty. Mona knew what I needed the first time I came. She has new ideas each time I have come back. She has provided products, given treatments, and even managed the cut to be thinner. Whether in the shower, in the salon, or at home, Mona has something for me to use to make it easier to style my curly hair.
