Let me introduce myself, I’m Claire, a curly hair girl with a passion for curly hair.

I have been in the hair industry for over 20 years, and had a client base of curls, having curly hair myself, understanding the struggles with curls.

Always wanting to learn researched and embarked on training at the DEVACURL academy in NYC in 2016.

2018 I had the opportunity to train with  Lorraine Massey,( the author of Curly Girl the handbook) one of the first Educational classes in the UK. This was a opportunity to go back to the start, way before Devacurl and train with Lorraine who was one of the co-founders of Devacurl.

CURLbyCURL™ certified by Lorraine Massey, Devacurl trained specialist, the only hairstylist in South West England with these  qualification, specialising in cutting and colouring curly hair using the unique colouring Pintura technique, completing this by travelling to New York City in the summer of 2016.

Researching and continual development in my career and passion, I am currently studying with the Curly Hair Artistry, developed by Scott Musgrove.

I’m highly qualified in hairdressing and have an educational background with educational qualifications too.

The only stylist that has these qualifications in Devon

I’m based in   The Hair Boutique, Exeter , Devon, South West England.

    Oh Happy days!!! I am moving to Cornwall and despaired of finding a hairdresser who “gets” curly hair, and there you are, I was given your details by Michele at Bouclemme, and will be in touch, the minute I am relocated.
    BTW I know my name is Kelvin, normally associated with men, but I am female

    Hi Claire,
    My 23year old daughter has thick naturally dark blonde highlighted wavy/curly hair. Very few hairdressers in Exeter know how to cut this type of hair and many resort to those dreadful thinning scissors, which doesn’t look good at all at only makes the hair appear frizzier.
    Just wondering how much you charge for a cut and blow dry please?
    Also do you use Milkshake colour, as this is really gentle on the hair. If not, is it another plant based colour that you use and how much do you charge for a half and a full head of highlights?
    Thankyou Claire.
    Look forward to hearing from you.
    Best wishes.

    Clare has cut my hair now for the past 13years. I can honestly say she is the only hair dresser I have ever been to who really understands curly hair and at nearly 60 yrs young that is vital. I decided on a change of colour yesterday and let Clare blend in some lighter tones. Really pleased with the result. Apart from her expertise she is also one of the nicest people so the whole experience of having your hair done is truly a joy.

    Hi I am considering trying the curly method again (I found it improved the top drier layers) but the underneath was greasy and I gave up. Where are you based? Also need a cut.
    Many thanks Jo
