    I absolutely recommend going to see Jo! I trust her implicitly with my curls! She asked so many questions about what I liked and maybe wished about my hair before I even saw her. She is clearly very experienced and works with you to determine your hair hopes and dreams and then how to care for your hair and maintain it. I have been going to Jo for a couple of years with my curly hair and I feel so happy with how it looks and feels. Plus, Jo is just an all around lovely human! It feels like an honor to wear her art as part of my being! Go see Jo!

    Jo is the best. I’ve had my hair cut by another hairstylists (a friend) and regretted it immediately. If you’re looking for no nonsense cut this is the place. ?

    1st time using a specialist in cutting curly hair. I LOVE my haircut! I left with hair I loved. I have showered and been able to recreate the style. Jojo really did a great job showing me how to style my hair properly and I will go back when I need a trim.Services: Haircut

    I love everything about the experience with having Jo cut my hair. I showed her a couple photos and she gave me exactly what I wanted. She’s a kind and talented creative artist….Services: Haircut

    I am so incredibly impressed with Jo. This was my first haircut with her after years of frustrating experiences with other stylists who just didn’t have a good grasp of the way my curly hair behaves. Jo really expertly observed what my hair does and delivered an exceptional cut that not only looks amazing but really simplified my hair care routine. This is truly the best my hair has ever looked and felt and I feel much more like myself when I look in the mirror. To top it all of she gave me so much great advice on how to style and maintain my hair so that I feel more in control of it day to day. Jo is truly magnificent at what she does and I plan to go to her for future haircuts as long as I can!

    Jo is a master, and I’m so happy to have booked her.I have fine curls, longer hair, and hair that tends to get build up easy and curls that fall flat on my head. I brought her a collection of loosely related inspiration pictures and she was able to read between the lines to understand what I was going for shape wise / goal wise. I never thought I could love my hair this much. Worth it! She’s super cool and made me feel welcome, and is great at making curly hair simple. Her follow up is also super informative and thoughtful. Can’t wait to go back ❤️

    This review comes two months after my first Curlcraft appointment with Haircraft By Jo. Following my cut/style/curly hair lesson, I was chomping at the bit to leave a review about how amazing my experience was with Jo- from how understood and ‘heard’ I felt in my frustration with my inability to embrace my hair with confidence and with the knowledge gained throughout the experience.I sat in her chair, presenting with a chaotic mid-back mess of wave, some curl, and two years hair growth (void of hot tools) and left with more curl and definition than I thought was possible, along with a different level of confidence in what I could achieve post-cut on my own.After thoroughly digesting Jo’s advice from our appointment, I did choose to transfer to organic hair products, new-to-me hair ties/headbands, a hair buff for sleeping, as well as washing only once to twice a week. In addition to the perfect tailored cut, the above has definitely made an impact in the positive in terms of definition of curl, scalp health, style manageability, and continued hair growth for me.I am over the moon in love with my hair, and even more so with my routine as it is simple and stress-free. Above all else though, I feel relief and confidence on the daily; I cannot recommend Haircraft by Jo enough!Services: Haircut

    This is honestly the best haircut I have ever had in my life. I've generally struggled with getting haircuts, but all of my learned anxieties were washed away when I sat in Jo's chair. She was very attentive to my experience with my hair and how I care for it and had many really great tips on volume and product types that I have now implemented into my hair care routine. Her knowledge and experience is front and center, everything about her said she knows curls inside and out.The part that made me feel like I was in very good hands was when I saw in the mirror how something she was doing during styling wasn't working with my texture, so she adapted technique accordingly to find the best outcome. I realize that sounds pretty standard, but as a person who has watched nearly every one of my stylist's expressions slide steadily into panic as they keep plugging away with a method that is CLEARLY making my hair a frizzy nightmare, I wanted to cry with joy. She saw that frizz was happening and changed it up, encouraging my curls while still letting them be wild and free. I left her salon feeling and looking INCREDIBLE, I turned so many heads with my curls bouncing in the wind and wore the style again a second and third day, which is a first for me. I had gotten used to taking two showers on haircut day, the first so they could see my natural curl pattern the way I styled it before they cut it and the second to detangle the frizz and find out if the cut was any good. Those days are behind me and I cannot be more grateful.Thank you Jo! I adore my haircut so much!(Photo 1: Salon styling - Photo 2: Home styling)Services: Bang trim

    Jo just gave me the best haircut of my LIFE!! I've had curly cuts before, I thought I knew all the things, I was expecting something good from this cut but she went above and beyond in every single way!! I asked for an effortless style that would celebrate my curls and she delivered. She took off barely any length (I told her I liked where it was at and she actually listened) but added SO MUCH VOLUME! I've received many compliments, a few friends even told me I look more like myself than ever.I loved spending time in her chair, I learned new tips and tricks, she recommended products that are actually helpful (not just salon expensive) and that she's tried and tested herself. Her styling lasted 3 days looking absolutely perfect, but after a day in the garden I (begrudgingly) had to wash it. And it still came out just as lovely and bouncy when I did it myself. I am in awe of this haircut, worth every penny.THANK YOU SO MUCH JO!!! I will be back :)Service: Curly hair
