My journey on getting one of the newest curly haircuts, the Rëzo cut.
As a natural girl, it’s HARD to get a good haircut. There used to be only one option for curly hair, the Devacut, created by DevaCurl, but now, Nubia Suarez (@nubiarezo) created a new haircut for curly hair, called the Rezo Cut (referred to as RëZOcut). The original salon is called Utopia in Westfield, NJ and now she opened an additional salon in NYC called Rezosalon. I was blessed that Westfield is only 20 minutes away from me, but people have been traveling over 4 hours just to get their hair cut here, and I’m prepared to show you why.
I got my hair cut done by Mayssa Deeb (@mayssas_beauty_mark) who is a RËZO educator which costs $150. The price goes up from $100 depending on who cuts your hair. The haircut is done on dry hair (air dried, no diffusing) that’s freshly shampooed, conditioned, and detangled. They cut on dry hair because that’s when you see your true curl pattern, and all curly haired girls know, the shrinkage is REAL. This lets the stylist know how long your hair really is when it’s in its natural, dry state. Just bring pictures for inspiration to show how you want your hair cut. For me, I want volume AND length, and she gave me that.

The process starts with shampoo and Evelyn used this shampoo with warm water to open up the cuticles of my hair while shampooing. So, remember warm water always during shampoo and you apply the shampoo to the scalp only. Let the shampoo run down your hair to cleanse the rest while rinsing it out.
The next part of any washday is conditioner, and the conditioner used on my hair was applied to the midshaft down, focusing on the ends. The reason for this is that your ends need conditioning. We’ve all heard of split ends, we don’t want that because it’s a sign of hair breakage. Detangle hair in sections with conditioner and while wet because it provides slip. Detangling curly hair can be absolute hell depending on the condition, but with wet hair, conditioning it into sections can be a breeze. You can detangle curly hair with either a denman brush or a Tangle Teezer (which is bei
