Smile How many curly clients do you have?

I'm just wondering what percentage of your clients have curly hair?

90%!!! I got out of school and immediately marketed myself as a curly stylist. I'm so happy my clients are finding me through the help of the Deva website and the all powerful naturallycurly.com!

My clientele seems to have a high percentage of curly clients. Most want blow-outs to look straight. I think our front desk books me thick curly clients because I also have curly hair, and have had good/bad cuts, and know how products work from using them on my own hair.

Almost 100% of my clients are curly; however, I do have a handful of my straight-haired gals who land in my chair every 4-6 weeks for cut and color. Which is cool, because I can keep up my razoring skills, et al, on them...things I can't do with my girls with curls

I have about 95% curly and the rest wish they were, it's a nice change of pace to do a precision bob every once in a while.

About 95% here too. And most of them with thick hair. I have been doing hair for about 15 years and this has been my percentage from the end of my first year.

Sadly I don't have a ton of curly haired clients. I just switched salons and am starting over with clientèle. At the other places I've worked I seemed to end up with more curlies returning to me than my co-workers so hopefully the same will happen at my new place of employment!
