Cut and Color on Natural Hair at Wesley Styles NYC

Back in April, I decided to get a cut a color for my birthday. Since getting a blowout, I know I needed a trim, so I contacted Tamika of Wesley Styles to do a cut and color. I’ve seen Tamika do hair demos several times at her shop and at hair events, so I already knew she does a great job.

Beauty Analysis at Wesley Styles NYC

As a new customer at Wesley Styles, I scheduled a beauty analysis to talk about color options, perform a skin allergy test with hair color as well as a hair strand test to see how the color I picked would look in my hair. Prior to my visit, I was encouraged by Tamika to bring pictures of cuts and colors that interested me.

Coloring and Shaping my Natural Hair

For “cutting day”, I was pretty excited so I decided to share via Snapchat. You can partially see my stingy ends and my excitement to get rid of them. After shaping my natural hair, we decided to do a halo highlight instead of a full head coloring.

Tamika styled my hair using the Wonder Curl Curl control Styling Lotion for a wash and go. I really liked the definition it gave and my hair was soft. When we first did the cut and color, I BARELY saw a difference and the only way I was really able to see it was in the sunlight. We decided to color it again on a visit shortly after my friend’s wedding. Below are the first, third and month differences.

Cut and color


My overall cut and color experience was great. I don’t plan on coloring my hair, for a while, but I’ll be back for a trim. If you’re in the NYC area and looking for a stylist, visit the Wesley Styles NYC official website or follow Tamika or Instagram and Facebook. She is natural but provides hair care for all hair types.
