Curl Kitchen is now open in the South Loop. Specializing in natural hair care for wavy, curly, or kinky tresses, the beauty retailer uses products from natural brands such as Bobeam, My Honey Child, and b.a.s.k. These are "products that do not require you to sacrifice healthy hair for beautiful hair," the owners explain on the website.
Along with a retail are staffed with curly-hair experts, the salon offers a service called "curl coaching." Shoppers who make a purchase of $50 or more get one-on-one training on how to use the product, whether it's for a braid-out, twist-out, flat-twist, or wash. The service includes a glass of bubbly or a non-alcoholic drink, as well.
