What is The Tight Curl Theory?
A cosmetology based educational system that centers the care, cut, color, 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 course is to set a new standard of competence and performance as an industry when working with the tight curl client.
