Salon Talk: ARNITA Gives Us The Scoop on CURLTOPIA

Greetings Chicas/Chicos..I pray all is well with everyone.

Today Arnita Craighead is giving us the scoop on a salon that specializes in 'natural hair' in Atlanta, Ga..
Curltopia located in Smyrna, GA (suburb of Atlanta) is a high end salon that specializes in healthy natural hair. I know, I know, we have heard salons mention that they so called specialize in natural hair, and many times we are left disappointed and broke with massive amounts of our tresses cut, blow dryed and straightened or amassed with products that don't necessarily work for our hair..hmmm, so let's see what Arnita is saying about CURLTOPIA!!!


1, Name of the salon and where located 

Curltopia, located in Smyrna, GA
3150 Highlands Pkwy SE
ste. 203
Atlanta, GA 30082
770-434-5585 www.curltopia.com

2. Wait time (this is a huge pet peeve of mine..waiting in salons all day)

NONE. I always get there a little early so that I can get checked in and when my appointment time rolls around, we get started.

3. Level of professionalism 

Totally professional! The salon assistant who makes the appointments is on top of things and answers any up front questions you might have and get you scheduled in. No complaints in this area at all.

4. Stylist you met with

Aliah...SHE ROCKS!

5. Ambiance 

Salon is open and relaxed. They have water, tea and coffee to drink. They offer water while under the dryer to ensure you stay hydrated and cool.

6. Your experience 

My experience has been great. Aliah has totally calmed my concerns about going natural and I am even more excited now. She provides great insight, answers all my questions with complete patience and ensures that I have instructions on how to care for my hair styles before I left the salon. When I go back, she always asks how my hair style held up and how I enjoyed it to see if we need to make any changes.

7. Would you recommend?

I would totally recommend! Aliah stays pretty booked because she's good, so anyone wanting to get in to her should book well in advance.

Wow..thank you Arnita, this sounds amazing!!! Although I don't visit salons, your review would definitely make me consider going to visit Curltopia..so awesome, awesome, awesome. This is also helpful for those naturals who are looking for a great salon that 'actually' specializes in healthy natural hair who do not wish to use heat to straighten it..hope you all enjoyed
