Sisters Miko and Titi Branch, creators of some of our favorite curly girl hair products “Miss Jessie’s”, have expanded their natural hair care empire with the launch of their latest venture. Miss Jessie’s CurlBar is the newest salon addition to Manhattan’s funky downtown Soho neighborhood.
The salon offers a precise list of specifically-priced services geared towards women with curly hair;
they range from basic the wash-and-go to rod sets, curly cuts, and even blowouts that are anywhere from $50-$100. Miss Jessie’s signature conditioning treatments are offered complimentary with every service. According to Titi “If you have natural hair, you know that going to a salon can be really expensive because natural hair requires a lot of work and time.” With that in mind, the salon specializes in washing and styling and veers away from any chemical or coloring services. “CurlBar is a new concept for curly hair that offers curly styling, expertise and great prices all at once. We’re also very time conscious so you won’t be sitting in the salon all day.”
In a city where other hair types can find a “blowdry bar” on nearly every block, it’s great to know that those with coils, curls, and waves will have a go-to destination for quick and easy styling. The girls also offer a wide range of their own products for sale, and there will be 5 new items available in the beginning of June.
Schedule an appointment or walk-in Monday through Friday at: Miss Jessie’s CurlBar, 441 Broadway. (212) 966-5600. *Saturday hours TBA*
