The Curl Girl
SO glad I found Jennifer! She is amazing! To start off my review I'm going to briefly describe my hair (because when I read reviews I like to have a little history). I am bi-racial (black & white), chemically relaxed my hair for approx. 25 years before deciding to go natural. I went to a different stylist for my "big chop". I explained in detail to the other stylist (completely unrelated to The Curl Girl) the shape I was wanting to achieve, even showed her pics of women with my hair type. I feel this other stylist did not really listen to me, didn't try to get to know me & my hair and she was very rushed. Well I left that other salon complexly disappointed with a very ugly straight bob cut (not a good look on a curly girl). NOW COMES JENNIFER!!! First of all, she took plenty of time communicating with me before my appointment, answering all my questions and asking me questions to make sure she could give me what I wanted. I REALLY appreciated that! When I arrived I was pleased to meet a beautiful, sweet & spunky woman! She proceeded to treat my curls with such care. She TOTALLY transformed my ugly straight old-fashioned bob cut into a modern, cute inverted curly bob! Jennifer knows curls!! She made a client for life that day :)

(I'm a regular client at her Tampa location) Jen is the absolute BEST! I've suffered through terrible haircuts for years but never again. The Curl Girl knows her stuff and is always updating her knowledge and skills to give her clients the best cuts/colors around. She's helped me grow my hair out, cut it short, dye it dark, put in highlights, and no matter what I always leave feeling amazing. Jen takes her time and is really thoughtful about every cut. She won't hesitate to suggest an alternative if she knows what I picked out won't work for my curl pattern or skin tone (she's helped me avoid some tragic hair mistakes). I get complimented on my hair all the time. Her tips on products and styling have helped my hair become healthy, shiny, and easy to manage. Hands down, the best there is!

I have been a client of Jen's since 2011 when she saved my curly hair! I found Jen online and figured it was worth another endless shot. From the very first time I went there she helped me save my curls...no more pyramid hair!! In all the years I've been going to Jen my curls have only got better as time goes by. She's helped me learn what works and what doesn't as far as products and styling techniques. Jen is the best!! Highly recommend.

I'd had a Ouidad cut in another salon, but the stylist wasn't really focused on me or my hair to the point that I styled it myself as she washed someone else. I'd had a Deva cut at a salon in Tampa and the cut was great, but I just didn't really click with the stylist. When I found Jenn's information (her Tampa salon) and read the reviews, I knew I wanted her to cut my hair next. In the meantime, I brought my niece to Jenn for her first curly cut. My niece did next to nothing with her hair (literally washed, brushed & put wet into a low ponytail), but wanted more. Jenn spent a lot of time talking to us, asking questions, studying my niece's hair and explaining things to her, how to care for her hair, what not to do, how to use the products, how to pin, what to expect, etc. I'd love to show you the before & after, total transformation! Jenn has cut & colored my hair since then and I can't wait to go back. I love that Jenn is so fun to talk to, easy to get in touch with, keeps up with trainings & trends, knows her products and will refer you to colleagues for information on products she hasn't tried. I can't wait to see her new salon in Winter Park.
