When the pandemic forced quarantines, Henson, who is based in San Diego and is a curly-hair master, found an innovative way to help her curly clients get those needed trims from the comfort of their homes with virtual haircuts. She offers a FaceTime walkthrough, guiding clients through the cut, teaching them to feel for damage, how to angle their scissors and then she gives them the green-light to "snip."
"I never reopened my salon, but these virtual sessions have become so successful, I am hearing from people from all over the world."
When salons were forced to close, many stylists pivoted to virtual services as well. Daisy Henson, owner of The Daze Studio curly hair salon in San Diego, offers a variety of virtual services, including quick consultations (to assess the condition of your curls and develop a hair care regimen) and a variety of haircut options, from a quick fringe lift to a total shapeup. (She's the stylist who instructed Burling's haircut.)
