The Hair Base Curly Service

We love curls and take them seriously

Every Curly Cut and Blow Dry appointment is booked with a thorough consultation prior to carrying out any service, our specialist curly hair appointments have dedicated longer time slots to prefect the technique used. Our priority is the health of your curl pattern.

Curly Cut and Blow Dry

Type 2 Wavy 2A Wavy 2B Wavy 2C

Wavy hair is classified as a 2. Dependent on how wavy it is, it is split between A, B and C, A being closest to straight. Thick S-shaped waves combined with curls you have the best of both worlds, it’s easy to wear straight and just as easy to embrace the curl pattern, boasting a natural beachy wave which so many people are trying to achieve, life is literally a beach, so let us help you embrace it proudly.

Wavy hair tip: Because wavy hair is more prone to frizz, anti-frizz and humidity protective products are key for creating and keeping gorgeous waves. Lack of volume and definition means that products will easily weigh them down causing your waves to become straight so try using lighter styling defining products and also avoid keeping your fingers out of wavy hair, the more you run your fingers through the more frizz you may experience.

Curly Cut and Blow Dry

Type 3 Curly 3A Curly 3B Curly 3C

Type 3 curly hair ranges between a light curl to tight curly tendrils and usually have a combination of textures, with more height and volume at the root than type 2s. If you pull a strand of a type 3 you will notice it has a definite S shape or even a Z on some occasions, however there is a definite curl pattern with or without styling products. Lack of proper care and healthy cuts render dull curls.

Curly hair tip: Curly hair is the most temperamental, applying too much product will cause weighed down/greasy looking curls and apply too little and you may experience a frizz ball! The key to guaranteeing effortless, frizz free curls is the application of styling product applied, always try to cleanse, condition and moisturise your curls section by section. Remember hydration and moisture is key.

Curly Cut and Blow Dry

Type 4 Kinky 4A Kinky 4B Kinky 4C

Type 4 Kinky hair is fine and thin or wiry and coarse with densely packed coils which may seem robust, but it’s actually the most fragile hair texture with fewest cuticle layers to protect it from dryness, the main priority is to maintain moisture, avoid tangles and counteract shrinkage. There is a misconception that this hair type does not grow, well it definitely does just as quick as any other hair type! With the right care, treatments and knowledge we will show you that this is definitely a misconception.

Kinky hair tip: Kinky hair is dry by nature and breaks easily, it needs added moisture daily. The key to keeping these natural locks beautiful, healthy and shiny is to moisturise daily using a creamy, sulphate free moisturising cleanser, followed by a hydrating rich cream conditioner and weekly moisture based hydrating treatments. Avoid mineral and petrolatum oils and heavy waxes.

Our mission is to change your hairdressing experience and empower Curlies to enjoy and live up to the true potential of your curls.

Adel was amazing! she took time with my hair and really paid attention to every detail. I woke up this morning with the most beautiful bouncy curls and for the first time, in a very long time, I truly loved my hair and cut. Looking forward to continuing my curly hair journey with Adel, and thank you, The Hair Base, for understanding curls.

Lovely experience as always. Shelby has a wealth of knowledge and experience, which shows in her colours and cuts. The salon is always professional yet friendly and welcoming, I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Emma completely took on board exactly what I wanted and gave me reassurance as soon as i saw her cut my hair dry and flip my hair to make sure the cut was how she wanted it before proceeding. She was lovely to chat to and answered all my questions on styling that i had. She’s gave me a whole new confidence with my hair and a first positive experience with having my hair cut. The salon is so modern and stylish and offers a complete luxury experience!

I can't even explain how happy I am with my hair since having my first visit to the hair base. I was made to feel so welcome, and Emma was really knowledgeable. The curly cut is the best I have ever had. Coupled with the excellent service and gorgeous salon, I have already booked again. I will definitely be a regular customer now, thank you so much!

Can't express in words how amazing this salon is. A 40 year phobia of the hairdressers cured in an afternoon. What can I say about Adel, I feel like she performed some kind of wizardry on me, not only was my hair cut amazing I walked out the door feeling empowered and like myself again. I crept in terrified but bounced out with my head held high. Thanks Adel your an amazing woman and the best hairdresser I've ever been to.

Shelby is not just a wonderful hairdresser and inspired colourist, but clearly a magician! I came to The Hair Base with very badly damaged post chemo hair. I couldn't bear to look at it. After Shelby worked her magic.(with a lot of consultation and care) I left the salon feeling amazing. Thank you.
