Wall and vanity of Miss Jessie’s Original Products at CurlBar
A few weeks ago I attended the grand opening party for curly hair experts Miko and Titi Branch’s latest project, the Miss Jessie’s CurlBar Salon. The salon is a beautiful French parlor-style loft in Soho. They use their award winning products and I couldn’t wait to get an appointment!
On a sunny day, I was greeted by the friendly Miss Jessie’s staff who escorted me into the brightly lit salon and served me fresh hors d’oeuvres (cheese, crackers and curls…yum!). Next they gave me a full consultation explaining their services, products and a multitude of options. I picked the “Wash and Go” cut and style – see more details on that below.
The Miss Jessie’s process includes first blowdrying hair straight (you can opt for a curly cut too), then trimming ends. They have a full look book (more like a curly hair bible!) where you can view real women with textures like yours, and simply point to what style you’d like. Next they do a full shampoo and condition with their award winning eponymous products, then style your hair after drying.
Each person’s routine and products will be custom to you, but here’s a breakdown of the “Wash and Go” transformation they gave me:
1. Blowdry hair straight using fingers and paddle brush
2. Trim ends in sections
3. Cleanse hair with Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo
4. Cleanse hair with Crème de la Curl (no suds, sulfate free shampoo)
5. Condition with Super Sweetback conditioner
6. Work through leave-in cream in sections by lightly pulling and stretching individual wet curls – use Curly Meringue for soft hold and definition
7. Place under a hood dryer
8. After hair is dry work through Baby Buttercreme for extra moisture and shape hair with a wide-tooth comb and fingers
Other services include two-strand twist outs, coil outs, a variety of curly styling and up-do’s, and smooth blowouts. My style lasted four days without any water or additional product! It was smooth, moisturized and easy to wear as is or add more styling. I simply wore a bonnet to bed and scrunched in the morning.
Prices are VERY reasonable, and you can purchase the entire product collection in-store. The products are made with quality ingredients free of heavy and dangerous toxins.
