Cut It Kinky
teaching the art, science, and business of Black Girl Curls to licensed cosmetologists
Cut It Kinky! charts new territory in our industry where we are finally able to center what we have coined “Black Girl Curls” as conceived by the owners of said curls. Rich with the culture, history, and lived experience of our target market, we bypass the forced emphasis on acceptability politics in hair, as shown by the preference for looser and lighter curls in product marketing and education.
It is our mission as black women, to present Black Curl Magic in all of its tight, kinky glory, leading to more and more stylists embracing the whole woman who walks through their doors with natural texture. We are brand agnostic, technically focused, and culturally sensitive educators that walk our talk.
All education for 2020/2021 will be digital. We are not accepting travel requests or non-mastermind private education requests going forward.
The Tight Curl Theory
What is The Tight Curl Theory?
A 100% digital based advanced cosmetology curriculum that centers the care, cut styling, and culture of tight curls. These tight curls are often but not always found on women of African decent who have historically been excluded from the cosmetology curriculum.
Our goal in creating this curriculum is to set a new standard of competence and performance as an industry when working with the tight curl client.
What Tight Curl Theory Students Are 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 Theory 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).
