Curly Hair Specialist

Raquel Fernandes

Although being skilled in working with all hair types, curly hair specialist Raquel Fernandes - founder of Beyond Curls, developed a passion for curly hair. Being a curly girl herself and having suffered bad haircuts, she felt that there were not enough hair stylists in the UK who understood curly hair. 

Raquel knew she wanted to make a difference and be able to help curly hair girls and guys feel confident about going to a hair salon. Raquel attended hair school and trained to become a fully qualified hair stylist. She took this further by enrolling at the world renowed DevaCurl Academy in New York, USA and gaining the 'Deva Inspired Curl Stylist' qualification. 

It was at the DevaCurl Academy where Raquel enriched her skill of working with curly hair by adopting the dry curl by curl cutting & pintura highlighting methods. Raquel also underwent the DevaCurl 'Art of Texture' speciality course for highly textured & super curly hair. This enabled Raquel with the skills to work with all textures - from the loosest waves to the tightest curl.
