Meet Our Family

Hello, we are professional hairstylists who decided to challenge the way we were taught in Beauty School and cater to a clientele that needed to unlearn the straight hair mindset and embrace the curly way of living. We are a small boutique located in Dobbs Ferry, NY, and are curly hair nerds all the way! We thrive off of our client's energy when they feel great about their hair, and we can honestly say we are addicted to the education and creative process as professionals and artists.

Meg Conkling is the owner and leading artist of Curly Hair Alchemist. Beginning her professional with curly hair in 2010 where she was a Senior Stylist at Devachan Salon. Her training took her to her entrepreneur path opening the doors to Curly Hair Alchemist in 2016. She is passionate to teach others the technical and intuitive balance of curl textures. When she’s not working, you can find her in nature recharging her batteries.

Daysa Matos began her journey of curly hair artistry in 2017 when she began her professional career. With a drive for education, Daysa came to Curly Hair Alchemist in February  2021 and has been an incredible teacher for her clients. Always finding the balance between haircutting and styling, this Libra is a dog lover and has an incredible future ahead of her.

"Meg is very polite, easy to talk to, informative and really knows her stuff. One of the best parts about the experience is she makes it easy. She sends you home with a step-by-step routine based on your hair type/needs. She has made this new experience for me very simple and made me feel extremely comfortable now caring for and styling my hair myself. Leaving her salon I felt much more educated and confident that I could achieve the same results at home. HIGHLY recommend."

How To Prepare Your Curls for Your Appointment: 

 Please cleanse, condition and style your hair curly (with product) the day of your appointment or day before at the most.

If you are new to being natural and you struggle to understand what your hair needs, please come in the best you can with your hair naturally out. We’ve got you!

DON’T brush, pick or comb your hair out the day of your service.

DON’T style your hair with products that are excessively sticky or greasy/oily. For example, shea butter or coconut oil. Also any products with heavy perfume or fragrance.
