I've been stalking ... er ... following ... Amalia Rauch on Instagram for a while and am wowed on a regualr basis at the amazing transformations she achieves with Jessicurl products. She's clearly so talented at both cutting and styling curly hair and I had a great time talking all things curls with her recently. :)
Amalia in action.
Where are you located?
Salon Glow is located at 1855 Plumas Street in Reno, Nevada. I am an independent contractor, so I make my own appointments by phone. 775-741-0786
How long have you been in business?
I have been in business a little under 3 years!
Check. Out. Those. CURLS!!
What made you go into the hair business?
My mother was a hairstylist, so I was able to see firsthand the power of beauty. I would read her old cosmotology books over and over, and I even got my hands on a doll head once or twice! I have always felt that I was meant to do hair.
If you specialize in curly hair, what made you adopt that focus?
I began my own curl journey in April of 2014. I wanted to embrace my waves and stop abusing them with flat irons and silicone. Then I began my apprenticeship later that year with master curl specialist, Carleen Sanchez, and started to learn the ins and outs of curly hair. After my own transformation, it became my mission to teach woman how to love their curls and be true to themselves.
What changes have you seen in relation to curly hair in the last 10 years?
10 years ago, I had no idea about anything related to curly hair! It has been truly exciting to not only discover curly safe products, but an entire curly community!
How did you first hear about Jessicurl?
I first heard about Jessicurl from my mentor, Carleen Sanchez. As soon as I got my hands on it, I knew I had to approach my salon owners about carrying it!
How long have you been carrying Jessicurl?
We have been carrying Jessicurl since April of 2015.
What sets Jessicurl apart from other lines, curly or otherwise?
Jessicurl has variety! I am always confident that I can transform any curl type using only Jessicurl products. The products are very moisturizing, and come in such wonderful scents. Spiralicious is hands down, my favorite product ever!
