Score a Service with Hair Rules’ Texture Guru!

Hey ladies! It’s Tuesday, time for The Fly Cut to introduce a new salon — and its exclusive deals! This week, we’re featuring Hair Rules, brainchild of celeb stylist/texture guru, Anthony Dickey (clients like Alicia Keys, Michelle O, Kelis, SJP and Estelle live for him) . You might be familiar with the salon’s wildly coveted haircare line (found in Target, Walmart, etc.) which has products formulated specifically for each stop on the texture train — everything from the straightest strands to the kinkiest koils. And let me tell you, Dickey knows texture — he wrote the book on it. Literally. If you haven’t, get into “Hair Rules: The Ultimate Hair-Care Guide for Women with Kinky, Curly or Wavy Hair.”

Aaaand if you want to experience his Freckled and Fly Fierceness up close and personal, head over to to score these exclusive deals:

1.) The first 30 buyers get 50% off a hairstyle with Dickey (huuuuge)

2.) Score a wash-and-go service for only $42 (usually $70).

Go, go, go! But first, enjoy this little video of me talking summer trends and transitioning with darling Dickey:




I Cut 3 More Inches, or Meet “Gloria”

I Cut 3 More Inches, or Meet “Gloria”

Sooo…on Tuesday I went to Hair Rules Salon for a keratin treatment. Girls, the two-textures thing is just killing me. It’s so hard to manage! So Hair Rules’ famed, freckled owner Anthony Dickey persuaded me to get a keratin. Keratin treatments basically just infuse hair with tons of nutrient-rich proteins that smooth your strands, removing the puff and frizz from the new growth. It’s a great option for Grow-Out Transitioners like me, because it smooths my roots without chemically altering the curl pattern (a’la relaxers)…so the difference between my unrelaxed and relaxed textures isn’t so jarring. And now, when I wash and dry my hair it’s so much less tangly and super-manageable!

So that happened, and then I cut three more inches of hair. Can you believe it? I was just like fuck it, I already cut a foot! Let’s go bananas! I think it’s too short to be a lob, but it’s definitely too long for a bob. I’m not sure how to classify my new cut. But I’ve named her Gloria. Ladies, this is Gloria. Gloria, these are my girls. Play nice and don’t talk about me behind my back.
