I have been a client of Scott's for over a year, and when I visited him last week, I was frustrated with my hair & wanted him to just chop it all off. Thank goodness SCOTT is the professional and was the voice of reason! He explained that I had "dry spots" of hair that needed extra conditioning & extra TLC, and cutting it off would not fix my problem. He showed me how to work with my problem areas and recommended the products he thought would work best. Well, I listened to him....now my hair is more manageable and the compliments from people haven't stopped! THANK YOU Scott!! Thank you for not letting me chop off my hair like I intended to do. You rock!!! And thank God my "hair angel" (Scott) is right in my hometown!

(This is an update from my previous 4-star review of Scott about 7 months ago.) After my first hair cut with Scott, I wasn't 100% thrilled with the outcome because it was a little shorter than I wanted. I didn't mention anything to Scott afterwards, but he called me a week later to see how I was liking my cut (talk about caring for your customers!). I explained to him that it was shorter than I wanted, and he apologized sincerely and offered me a huge discount on my next visit. I knew already that I wanted to give Scott a second chance because he is a such a smart guy when it comes to curls. I'm so glad I did! On my second visit, Scott complimented me on how healthy my hair felt since I've switched to water soluble products. He explained how on my first visit my curls were weighed down by all the bad products I had been using and how this gave him a false idea of my curl spring factor. For my second cut, he spent nearly an hour shaping up my ends, adding a few stylistic elements, and left most of my length--all free of charge. I love my hair now! Scott listens to his customers and follows up to guarantee satisfaction. He's the only stylist I will allow to touch my curls.

I got my first curly cut yesterday, after much anticipation and anxiety. I've always been afraid of getting my hair cut because all of the places I've been to previously would blow it out straight or cut it wet (neither of which work for me!!) and I'd have to alter it myself once it went dry curly. This was a new experience and I am so grateful I took the chance. I went in to see Scott with fuzzy frizzy curls all over the place and no idea what to do with them. My hair was long 3C coily curls, down to the top of my bum even when it was dry. Scott took his time, going over my current routine, explaining how certain products/chemicals damage you hair, and finding a system that works for ME and MY hair. Very personable and unique to my style and preference. I came out of the appt with beautifully shaped and hydrated spiral curls, still long but definitely healthier than it has been. I also gained more knowledge in our 2hr session than I've accumulated over the last 29 yrs I've been working with this head of hair, and for that I am grateful. Thank you so much for education me on how to manage and embrace my curls Scott! There's no doubt you will be my stylist from now on!

Saw Scott today for my first Curl Cut! He is absolutely amazing! My hair was just below my shoulders when curly. I kept most of the length, but all the bulk is gone! It was definitely a different kind of cut...I had to lay back, flip my head forward, but the results are incredible. I've got so much more curl and wave! Even better than the cut were his styling tips and tricks. It was wonderful to learn how to wash, and condition, what good clean hair should feel like, and how to apply styling products to minimize the dreaded halo effect. My hair is frizz free, touchable, and awesome. Best of all is that his cuts are meant to last. I should be good for 4-6 months! I will definitely be back, and I'm looking forward to more good curly hair days thanks to Scott!

After my much anticipated appointment with Scott, I had mixed emotions. First of all, this guy knows his stuff. He is undoubtedly the expert in curls south of the Mason-Dixon. Going to his salon is like going to school. Scott takes the time to explain and illustrate every step of the cut and curl care process. His recommendation of products for me was spot on, and I loved the way they felt in my hair. On top of being super smart, he's just a nice guy--very down-to-earth, very personable. So why did I give him only a four-scissor rating? Because my hair is about 2 inches shorter than I wanted it to be. I asked him to cut it to where it touched my shoulders. It touches my shoulders enough--soaking wet. But when dry, it is way up by my chin. This means I'm going to have to straighten my hair for the first time in months so that I don't look like a poodle in my best friend's outdoor wedding this weekend. I don't even have enough to gather for an updo. (sniff) I know I will love it when it grows out, and I will most certainly be visiting him again in six months or so (however long it takes to grow it back out). Maybe it's just my karma with haircuts, but I would encourage prospective clients to be very clear about short or long they want their hair to be AFTER it dries.

Thank God I found Scott right here in my own town! If you have curly hair, Scott is your go-to stylist. I have 3c hair and Scott is the only stylist who can cut & style my hair without me feeling like I need to run to my car and "fix" my hair. He is a perfectionist and cares for his clients more than any other stlist ive ever met. He does precision cuts, really takes his time to explain what he is doing every step of the cut, and recommends products that work well for your hair type. Scott won't let you leave his salon without educating you on how to take care of your beautiful curly tresses. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Scott-Musgrave-Hair/129030287183398?ref=ts&fref=ts

So I've had my cut for a little over two weeks now. Usually by this point I'm already crying after I can tell it's going to be another bad cut. But after 18 months of avoiding getting my hair cut, seeing the bad ends, the frizz and the halo I knew I needed to try something. I had just moved to this area to work at Duke and so made an appointment with Scott. BEST thing I have ever done for my hair. This man worked a miracle with his cut. He talked with me, asked me questions. Told me some things were impossible and other things could be done. He was honest, didnt just tell me what I wanted to hear, and gave me the best damn curly cut ever. I love my curls now. I dont try and hide them in a bun or straighten them or pretend theyre not there. If not for Scott my hair would still be a wreck to but he took the time to find out about my lifestyle, my habits (like constantly pushing my hair back with my hands) and gave me a cut thats beyond anything I could have asked for. Well worth the price. The time. Well worth everything. I'd give Scott more stars if I could. He saved my hair and made me think I could honestly be pretty instead of just getting by because theres no point in trying with the mess that was my hair!!

scott is pretty darn wonderful. i had gotten a couple of cuts at the deva salon in new york and loved them, but 500 miles is a long way to go for a haircut. a year ago a curly acquaintance told me about scott, who is an easy drive from home, so i called and made an appt. he took amazing care with me - we talked for most of the 2 hours i was there, and he gave me a lovely longer cut that lasted for the better part of a year. a week after he cut my hair he called to check up on me, and we spent 30 minutes on the phone talking about product options - i was not feeling the deva i'd been using for years and he said another of his clients made her own flax seed gel, which i tried and now use on a regular basis. a few weeks ago i went back for my 2nd scott cut - shorter and rather snappy - and we used jessicurl products and a different application technique to help with my halo issues. again, he spent a couple of hours being my hair stylist/coach/therapist and sent me away with a cut, products and processes that i am delighted with. scott is amazingly helpful, accessible and positive - he is a pleasure to work with. highly recommended!

I moved here from Georgia and needed my hair cut. I found Scott on this site and talked to him through Facebook. He actually answered me really quickly and asked about my hair. He said when I got into town give him a call. When I moved here that is exactly what I did. I also want to mention I live in fayetteville nc and it is about a one hour and twenty minute drive. Even before Scott cut my hair I knew he would be able to handle my hair. He is very versed in curly hair. He also has curls himself. Once I came in he discussed what products I use and my every day routine. He cut my hair and gave me a really nice style. He takes his time and you never feel rushed. I thought I knew almost everything about curly hair, but he even taught me something new. I am half Korean and African American with very curly hair. It is between 3c to 4a. I have no problems making that drive to see him. I have lived in many places such as Arizona, Maryland, Hawaii, Alaska, Florida, and Grorgia. I have seen alot of curly hair stylist and he is one of the top in the country.

This review should have been done a long time ago. I moved to fayetteville nc 8 months ago and needed a new curly hair stylist. I found Scott prior to moving to here on naturally curly. I looked him up on Facebook and he answered me very promptly. He told me to call him when I arrived in fayetteville and I did. Now Scott is located in Cary nc which is about an hour and 20 minutes drive for me. I knew even before he cut my hair he knew what he was doing. He is very informative about curly hair and I like that he has curly hair too. He not only cuts your hair, but talks about what products you use and your lifestyle. He does one client at a time and I like that. Your hair has all his attention. He also follows up with you later on. He gives such exceptional service and takes on new clients all the time. I have lived in many places such as Hawaii, Maryland, Arizona,Georgia, and now here. He is definately one of the best curly hair specialist in the country. I am glad I found him and don't mind the drive. My curls are 3c to 4a and 4b.

Just had another terrific cut from Scott. My curls are at their best all because of the time and care Scott puts into educating you. His passion for curls is very apparent and intoxicating. I drive about an hour to see Scott and it is the best thing I have done for my curls. The system Scott taught me has my curls looking better than ever. My curls have never been this tight and well defined. Scott's system is amazing. Someone said they never heard back from Scott after leaving a message. I have never had this problem. I usually leave a message for Scott on his cell phone and I always hear back from him very quickly. This is one stylist that you should connect with if you are in the area.

I found Scott online after searching years for someone who understood my hair type, and could cut curly hair. I booked my first cut last May and it was 6 months before I needed to go back for a trim (and I have never waited 6 months for a trim!) My hair has never grown out so beautifully!! There was no frizz and no triangle look that curly hair girls wind up with after a traditional cut. It was actually growing longer instead of ‘bushing out’. Scott set me up with the right products and spent time educating me on the proper care of my curls. I followed his advice and I have never had healthier looking hair, ever! I use Deva Curl products and have for the past 7 months. I like to mention that because I have never found a product that I could use with predictable results on a consistent basis until now. I was always chasing after the next best thing that promised to help control my curls and frizz. What a waste of time and money! All I needed to do was get a really good cut from someone who knows what they’re doing! I really respect and appreciate the fact that Scott is so passionate and clear about his work. He is absolutely the best!!

I moved to North Carolina from Washington State two and a half years ago. I've been straightening my hair with a flat iron for years. One of my sisters also has curly hair and she wears it curly all the time, but it's HARD and I wanted soft curls. I researched the internet and found Scott but didn't go see him until just a month or so ago. I so regret not doing it sooner. He is just fabulous! I was getting ready to drive across the country and wasn't sure if he could get me in before we left...and he did! My hair was so soft, I couldn't stop touching it. Scott took the time to tell me all about my hair and how to take care of it. I am finally getting the right "mix" of products in my hair and love the curls. Absolutely take your curls to Scott. After fighting the curls for over 50 years, I now embrace them!

i recently moved to North Carolina from Los Angeles, and i had left behind my curly hair stylist! i was on a mission to find someone who specialized in the Deva cut and went on the Deva website to find someone near my new zip code. i came across Scot''s profile and gave him a call to set up an appointment. i considered myself to be a proficient user of the Deva products, since i have been using them religiously for over a year now. when i saw Scott, he taught me his own way of using the products to get rid of my halo frizz that i had such a hard time taming! his hair cutting technique is rather unorthodox, but i could tell that he was a stylist rebel with lots of knowledge to back it up. he also has curly hair himself, so it's refreshing to know that your stylist knows what YOU go through every day. i came in with long curly hair, so long it was grazing my shoulder blades. i knew how to take care of my curls, but i was looking for a cut with some texture and style. also, the heat and humidity was getting to this California girl, so i needed something that was shorter and easy to manage. i brought in a picture that i liked but it was far too "fashion" for me, cos i'm a busy mom to an active 2 year old and don't have the time to devote to styling my hair every day. Scott then showed me a picture with a cut similar to what i wanted and we went with that cut. so i sat in the chair, then i was reclining, then i had my head tipped forward. Scott uses these techniques to really get a feel for how your curls fall. it helps him to cut a beautiful, natural shape of your curls so that once the hair dries, it looks great just by virtue os its own natural body. then we did a wash, and he advised me on how much product to use and how to apply it to achieve the least frizz. i admit i was a little nervous at how much product he was using on me, but once the hair dried, it looked AMAZING! when all was said and done, i had a curly A-line bob. i have coveted this hairstyle ever since i was a teenager and i never thought i could have it done on my curly hair! it's shorter in the back than the front, and it has lots of texture and dimension. the next day was my daughter's birthday party and i got a ton of compliments on my new hairstyle! i highly recommend that you take your curls to Scott's studio. you WILL NOT be disappointed and will receive the attention your hair deserves and some valuable styling advice. your curls will thank you for it!

Scott actually listened to what I wanted in a hairstyle. Then he made a few suggestions about what we might try. After educating me on how best to care for my hair, he gave me hair cut that helped my hair to lay correctly and evened out my previous "straight hair" cut. The combination of products he used gives me a look that holds ALL DAY even in humidity and wind! I only have to refresh it over the next couple of days until I wash it again. For the first time in my life (45 yrs.) I absolutely love my curly hair. I have had so many compliments even from total strangers since my appointment. I highly recommend Scott, who clearly loves bringing out the beauty of naturally curly hair.

I have never had the pleasure of meeting Scott face to face, but have talked through facebook. I too am a curly stylist, and we have been sharing ups and downs tips and tricks, ins and outs. In general, stylists are not a sharing bunch!! But Scott!! cares enough for all curlies to continually pay it forward. His work is nothing short of amazing. I look forward to his posts for inspiration. He cares, he shares, he performs, always giving, always learning, always growing. All for YOU. I would be honored to put my curls in his chair in a heartbeat, should I ever get the chance. Curly Girls, have not doubt as to what Scott can do for you. Do not hesitate. You will be safe here.

I can't say enough about Scott and the curl cut and advice he gave me. I found him online after booking a flight to a conference with my husband and made an appointment with him immediately. I'm so glad i did!! It is by FAR the BEST haircut I've ever gotten. Plus the one on one time with him discussing what I wanted out of my cut was a pleasant surprise....it's something I've never experienced before. I'll definitely be visiting again!!!

I discovered Scott through an Internet search! I started following his FB page and saw the photo before and after pix and read the FB conversations between Scott and his fans and was so impressed that I had to make an appt for a cut. Well, I have to say that I was absolutely floored by his expertise. I really thought I knew everything about curly hair, but Scott showed me an entirely different approach! I walked out of his salon with gorgeous bouncy shiny soft curls!!! Amazing considering he used DevaCurl products that felt hard on my hair while it dryed, but soft once he showed me how to "release" my curls! If you are tired of trying to fix your curls or being a slave to your flat iron and tired of spending money on tons of product, go to Scott's website and make an appointment! It will be the best thing you ever did for yourself and then refer him to any man, woman, teen or curly haired child you know! you will never have a bad hair day again!

Absolutely THE BEST curly hair specialist I have ever experienced in my 10+ years of curly hair! The time he took with me, the gentle expertise with which he handled my tresses, the variety of positions he had my head in to have the hair fall into trimming position, the flexibility in allowing and encouraging me to use my own products for the wash, his knowledge of the hair profession, hair types, and hair product types, a great sense of humor, being an excellent and caring listener, and a warm and friendly, yet professional attitude all added up to a PHENOMENAL experience with this intelligent hair specialist. He advised me that he would not have to touch my hair for another 8 months or so, and that between now and then I would know best when it needed to be trimmed again. I love that he boosts my confidence in my own ability to care for and tend to the needs of my hair! We curly girls NEED that. The sculpting he performed on my curly tresses had me feeling like a true work of art when I left. I received 3 complements directly after I left and several more as the day wore on. I was a hair beauty model, thanks to Scott! What a difference this visit made. He is the LAST curly hair specialist you will ever need! I feel as if my curls have "grown up" after visiting him. They fall perfectly, and I feel more confident and attractive than ever before. With Scott tending each curl with care like a patient and enthusiastic gardener, I finally feel that my curls can thrive! I know this sounds like a commercial, but I really can't say enough good things about this wonderful hair specialist (really, I'm just a very satisfied client, not compensated in any way for this review). Scott is located in a very convenient location on the Raleigh/Cary border. His studio is within walking distance of all sorts of family and kid friendly attractions in case you bring along company that needs something to do besides wait on you (usually takes about 2 hours, give or take 30 minutes), although there is plenty of parking (go in the morning if you can, though). There is also a comfortable waiting room if your company decides to stay. He is very reachable, and responds promptly with texting, email, and phone calls, not to mention communication via his website and facebook page. I have never been willing to answer the questions like, "Who does your hair?" or, "Who's your stylist?" I am relieved beyond measure that I have finally found my curly hair specialist, Scott Musgrave, and consider his time a worthy investment in my curls. Thanks to Scott, I have even more pleasure in being a curly girl, and my curly tresses are lovelier than they have ever been. I am eternally grateful! I took so much time writing this review because I sincerely believe I have found a gem. Here on NaturallyCurly.com, there is a kinship that seems to instantly bond us curly girls (and guys), and so many of us come here desperate for the hands and knowledge of an expert who will properly handle our curls. This review is for all of us who are seeking, and an expression and realization of HOPE in this search. May the path be easier from here on your hair journey!

Scott cut my hair for the first time about a month ago, and I LOVE what he did. I was looking for a change - I had very long hair and wanted to cut quite a bit off so that it was easier to maintain and style. I was also looking for a cut that was versatile enough for me to sometimes wear it straight if I wanted to. As much as I love to wear my hair curly, I sometimes felt locked into wearing it that way because the cut I had didn't look good brushed out. So it was either down and curly or up in a bun, and I wanted more options. It was time for the bun to go. Scott gave me some different options and we discussed the best course of action. When he could see that I was serious about wanting a big change, he cut about 8 inches off my hair and used some Deva products that I hadn't tried before to style it. I walked away feeling like I got a whole new look and all of the information I needed to keep styling it on my own. It looked (and still looks) fantastic, and I've gotten so many compliments on it. But the biggest and best surprise is that I now have great second day hair, and sometimes even great third day hair. I don't even remember the last time I was able to wear my hair down after sleeping on it. With this cut and the products, sometimes my second day hair is even better than the first day. Wow. I can't tell you how happy that makes me. Scott also took the time to follow up and see how I was doing with my new cut, and offered to give me free styling lessons or trim up anything I was unhappy with. I ended up not needing either, but the fact that he backed up his work like that was very impressive.

Scott is hands down the best stylist for my hair in this area. He is not only very experienced with cutting and styling curly hair, he is enthusiastic, interested, and passionate about his work. He cut my hair dry, which no one in this area has done. I haven't been this happy with my hair in a VERY long time.

Scott is a wonderful curly hair stylist! I found him when i asked a new acquaintance with curly hair where she got her hair done and she gave me Scott's name and number. I've been going to him ever since - for 3 to 4 years. I've learned so much about my curly hair, and am so thankful for this. Curly hair is most definitely a specialty and Scott works hard to keep up to date on the latest information/products/etc to help us girls look our best. I recommend Scott to every curly-haired friend of mine!

Scott has been doing my hair for over 5 yrs. In that time, I went from a short, pixie cut to growing my hair out and discovering that my hair was way more curly than I thought. He introduced me to DevaCare and I discovered that I can manage my hair with these great products. I can say that he has never one time steered me in the wrong direction. He knows hair and he gives an awesome cut. He also has curly hair, so he knows the trials we curly girls have and go through. :) So if you want an awesome cut and to learn how to manage your curly hair, I would have to say he is your guy!!!
