Haute Hair for Obama!

Haute Hair for Obama!

Ladies! My president is black! WOOOT! The only proper way for a beauty girl to celebrate four mo’bama years in the White House is by giving glam hair. Don’t you agree? As always, The Fly Cut is here to help you on your mane mission. We’re now offering discounted services to the natural haircare salon that started it all, Brooklyn’s Khamit Kinks!

When you talk about the OG’s of natural hairstyling and haircare, Khamit Kinks Salon shines like a beacon among a zillion imitators. Founded in 1989, the chemical-free mecca has reached legendary status based on proprietress Anu Prestonia’s effortlessly chic styling – she all but introduced Senegalese Twists, Goddess Braids, Trini Braids and the Cherokee to the masses – and superstar devotees like Lenny Kravitz, Angela Bassett, L. Boogie and Oprah Winfrey (yep) singing her praises. The best part? Prestonia isn’t just fascinated by healthy hair, she also is committed to a healthy lifestyle – and as a Hatha Yoga instructor, encourages her clients to practice healthy eating and fitness habits, as well. With Anu’s glorious styles, genius staff and pretty-hair-starts-on-the-inside perspective, it’s no wonder that Khamit Kinks’ work has graced the likes of Essence, The New York Times, The View and CNN! And now, on The Fly Cut, we’re thrilled to bring you exclusive Khamit Kinks deals for two whole weeks. Listen, you powered thru Sandy and election stress. You deserve this, woman.

On www.theflycut.com, score a wildly coveted Khamit Kinks consultation for free! Simply  purchase an Anu Essentials Shampoo and Conditioner for $36 ($71 Value).

Naturalistas, You Need This.

Naturalistas, You Need This.

Hola muchachitas!  Time for my weekly The Fly Cut plug.  If you live anywhere near NYC and happen to be a glam naturalista (at any stage of the situation, transitioning to full-on freedom hair), you must head over to TFC and score deals to Brooklyn’s Evolution Green Room Salon.  This zen-sational space on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill is eco-friendly, non-toxic, organic and yet profoundly uncrunchy.  Total glamour.  The uber-green stylists and technicians create a 5-star, deluxe environment, and all of their clients leave feeling a little sexier than they did that morning.  From two-stand twists and starter locs to haute updos and blow-outs, the options are endless.  And until Monday, TFC members can get up to 80% off of select services.  Get into it!!

We Love Hair? Indeed.

We Love Hair? Indeed.

Ladiieees!  If you haven’t visited The Fly Cut this week, you must.  Our featured salon is Harlem’s aptly named We Love Hair, where the stylists aren’t only devoted to creating some of NYC’s chicest, most fashion-forward styles, they’re also into restoring broken strands to glossy gloriousness. The minimalist salon is never crowded, loud or backed-up (thank heavens) — and owner/master stylist Willie Whitfield is famously available for client consultations. All in all, a visit to We Love Hair all but guarantees you a fly do, an ultra-pampering experience, and a plan for how to make the most of your God-given mane. As Willie says, “Learn your hair, live your hair, love your hair!”

Until Monday the 8th, score $25 for a Wash & Style ($50 Value) or $57 for a Relaxer & Haircut ($115 Value). Pretty hair is contagious, so tell a friend :-)
