They start with a thorough consultation. Bring photos to help them get a clear understanding of your vision. Tell them how much time and effort you are willing to put into styling your hair. Let them know if you want to be wash and wear, or if you are willing to use a diffuser. They can gently advise you if your expectations are not realistic. Either way, their goal is to help you embrace your curls. Aren't you tired of salons that don't understand that the needs for curly hair are totally different than for straight hair? At Chiggy's Touch, the curl experts understand that there are many options for styling curly hair. If you are not inclined to spend a lot of time styling your hair, keep it simple. Long layers are great for keeping a loose, relaxed curl, easy to control split ends, and easy to throw into a ponytail. On the other hand, short curls can be defined, youthful, and definitely show your best facial features. Whichever option you chose, embracing your fabulous curls will get you that confident attitude, with very little effort. Call to speak to one of our curly hair experts.

Capella Salon

Capella Salon

12816 Ventura Blvd.

Studio City, CA 91604


Capella's approach to curly hair is very simple: Don't try to make them do what they can't. Pay attention to the way the curls want to fall and encourage them in the right direction. Treat the curls as individuals that work together to create a beautiful head of hair. Capella stylists cut each curl individually, when the hair is dry. Adding to the complete experience, Capella has shiatsu shampoo chairs by Takara Belmont, which give clients a massage while they're having their hair washed. Clients also are served champagne, mimosas, wine or Starbucks coffee (lattes, cappuccino's, espresso, etc.). Capella carries Deva, Karastase and Davines products. A key focus at Capella is education to empower clients to do their own hair. "We know how to make your curls look good," says Capella owner Shai Amiel. "But we take great pride in teaching them how to duplicate these looks and allowing them to attempt new ideas with their curls. I think it's important for the stylist, curls and clients to work together as a team."
