Stylist: Rae Allen

After researching salons I could trust with my curly hair (btw my curl type is 3B), I found Rae Allen at Jose Luis Salon!So the salon website currently has a lookbook that features curly hairstyles, so that first got me intrigued. I was looking at the team, as soon as saw Rae's profile, especially that she had curly hair....I was sold. There's just something about hair stylists with curly hair that just gives me an instant sigh of relief. Curly hair girls know its difficult to truly trust straight hair stylists to put the same T.L.C as a stylist with curls (they just know/relate to our struggles). And Rae did not disappoint! My hair was long over due for this appointment. Rae consulted me about what I wanted (just short cut and highlights),but went the extra mile to make sure we were on the same page about the length, the shape, and addressed correcting my hair color (PSA: never let friends color your hair, leave that to the professionals, like Rae, I apparently had a bad case of "hot roots"). Rae colored, highlighted, and cut my hair into head full of fierce locks and curls. She answered all my curly hair maintence questions and gave me some much needed curl advice (I retired my flat iron last year, I'm still learning who to love my curls properly). Also, she is so chill, friendly, and easy to talk to.... by the end of the appointment she was basically my therapist (I was spilling all the tea).I'm super excited to say I've officially found my curly hair specialist!Curly hair girls of South Austin, we have an ally in Rae!
