Aeleise Harris Ollarvia
Tight Curl Artist
Hey ya'll I'm Aeleise, a nomadic hair stylist traveling the country giving fly curl cuts and amazing color.
Im a shady mom + wife who's been keeping my hands in Black Girl Curls for the past 8 years as my career.
Cutting through old wives tales and internet myth with facts brings me joy and willful ignorance chaps my ass.
A South Side Chicago girl at heart, I'm a straight shooter that understands ALL the curls in the imaginary curl alphabet. Lingering in the Target multicultural hair aisle with a Starbucks Caramel Macchiato (coconut milk of course) is my favorite hobby and I can give you a dissertation comparing the finer points of UFD Curly Magic vs. Deva Ultra Defining Gel while you shop.
I believe in the: New Natural Hair Paradigm
1.Rocking fabulous shapes over keeping length for the sake of length
2. Creative permanent coloring on healthy hair over fear of color damage
3. Freedom hair over continuous protective styling
4. Fact based knowledge of your unique natural hair over unscientific advice and fads
WHAT CLIENTS SAY?
KIND WORDS FROM MY LOVELY CLIENTS
"I had a great salon experience. I learned so much about my hair and I feel more confident about how to take care of my curls.."
"I am a believer after having 2 sessions with Aeleise I was a wash no-go, 1 day twist out girl but now I've got a fresh cut and curls."
"I soooooo appreciate y’all. I thought I was a “bad natural” because I wasn’t putting olive oil and other foods in my hair. It just didn’t seem right! Now that @hairloveart (Aeleise) has hooked me up with a nice cut and shape with knowledge of products for my hair, I can rock my W&G for 8 days at least maybe more"
"It was a wonderful experience. Aeleise was welcoming, informative, and extremely knowledgeable. Thank you Aeleise for helping me better understand my natural hair!"
"I’m so glad I found you! I might be out here following silly YouTube videos and slapping coconut oil on my hair 😂 You’re the best 😘!"
