My Amazing Natural Hair Journey

Your Local Natural Hair Stylist and Resource Guide

 I’ve had many questions asked lately about go-to stylists for natural hair. Well, in my effort to put resources in your hand to get the best care for your tresses, I want to give you a start-up guide for some of Birmingham’s best stylists for natural hair. Below, I have broken this down based on the type of style you want. Bottom line, you have options and the natural hair community is well-represented. And… this is not exhaustive! If you know of a natural hair stylist that does a great job or wants to be included…do not hesitate to write me. I am looking for other stylists to recommend to those who are taking the plunge! I will update this list periodically.

A couple of other notes on using this directory:

  • Plus, please double check with them on the styles they will do on your hair. They may be able to do more than what I’ve listed, just ask a few questions when you phone them.
  • If you have visited these stylists, please give me a rating on your experience. I believe these are a really good group of folks, but I am open to your feedback whether positive or negative.

 Ok, so here we go with our stylist recommendations and product locations.
