About Your Tight Curl Mentors
Welcome to our corner of the internet. We are Aeleise & Aishia, ultimate curl nerds and cofounders of Black Girl Curls. Over the last four years of working with tightly curly haired women around the world, we have come to the conclusion that there is desperate need for more tight curl specialists.
We started Cut It Kinky because we listened. We listened to our online client’s request to work with stylists in their local areas who could cut their hair without the need to blow it out.
We are not only dedicated to teaching stylists how to see 3-Dimensional hair, but we are also committed to teaching the science, the business and the lived experiences of those who posses tight curls.
Our goal is to share everything we know about Black Girls and their Curls with those who are interested and dedicated to serving them. Giving Black women and girls access to local and in some cases regional tight curl specialists who are knowledgeable and equipped to work with their curls
What Are Our Mastermind Members Saying?
In an industry where black girl curls are often misrepresented and the textured hair stylist lack the education needed to serve her clients adequately; Tight Curl Theory steps in and equips the licensed professional with the necessary tools and confidence to not only service tight curls but how to properly run all business channels in a clear and efficient way. I’m only five years in and my business operates as if I’ve been in the game longer . The education is absolutely amazing and the mentorship / network is the icing on the cake. I feel like I’m constantly drinking from a fire hydrant.
Operating in excellence is a breeze when you’ve been properly equipped. It’s been a game changer for sure for me.

After having taking the last Tight Curl Mastery workshop of 2020, the virtual edition has been an invaluable investment.
The live workshop can be sensory overload, because there is so much to see, learn and reinforce. I didn’t take ANY pictures or video while in the workshop, because I wanted to be in the moment and absorb all my brain would allow without any distractions.
The virtual edition allows me the ability to dissect and perfect any areas I needed to reinforce. More importantly, I have 24/7 portable access to the curriculum.
The impactful takeaway from Tight Curl Theory is learning and executing the client’s “future” or aspirational hair cut with the full understanding of how the curl canvas presents on the day of the appointment and factoring in client’s lifestyle. Moreover, I’ve never experienced a Curl workshop that infuses the cultural nuances specifically related to how Black women see themselves and their curls. All this and more is available in Tight Curl Theory ( virtual edition).
Genetically Curated Salon
Having been in this industry for 30 years, I’ve taken many different advanced trainings and I always wondered why there was no instruction on how to style, cut and maintain natural tight curly hair. Other mainstream companies claimed that they offered training for tight curls but what was shown was a lack there of even understanding tight curly hair. My cousin, who’s Aeleise’s client recommended that I look into CIK. It took me awhile to research but when I finally did I knew that this was training I needed and would be well worth the investment. Not only do you walk away with learning how to cut and style naturally tight curls, you also get the knowledge on how to properly market and run your business. Being apart of the CIK community has been one of the best things I ever did for my business hands down!

As a cosmetology student, joining the Tight Curl Theory while in school has been very enlightening & helpful. I’m applying what I have learned in this course along with what I’m learning in school. It has made it that much easier. In school, we don’t focus on the business of cosmetology but CIK has given me tools to set me on the right path. I can honestly say, by the time I graduate I will have my systems, website, alternative revenue, etc in place. This Mastermind Course is well worth it
