Curly + Natural Hair Geek | Deva Advanced Stylist | Curl Educator + Mentor
Hey ya'll I'm Aeleise, a nomadic hair stylist traveling the country giving fly curl cuts enhanced with amazing color. Every Amplified Curl Cut is a stylist + client collaboration executed with sculptural precision and I wield my KARG dry hair cutting shears like Edward Scissorhands.
A South Side Chicago girl at heart, I’m currently a practicing Georgia peach, crafting a cozy homebase near Atlanta with my culinary genius husband and side eyeing infant daughter.
I’m a Deva Advanced Stylist that understands ALL the curls in the imaginary curl alphabet. As the co-everything of The #30DayHairDetox, The Black Curl Magic Digital Guide, and theCut It Kinky Intensive, lingering in the Target multicultural hair aisle with a Starbucks Caramel Macchiato (coconut milk of course) is my favorite hobby. I can give you a dissertation comparing the finer points of UFD Curly Magic vs. Deva Ultra Defining Gel while you shop.
In addition to all of the above, Aeleise is also the Creative Director of The Strand Collective in Marietta, GA. She takes APPOINTMENTS at both Curl Lab Chicago and The Strand Collective, along with occasional appointments in Los Angeles/Oakland.
