A haircare & styling brand for the modern Curly Kinky Coily hair girl

About Astyled


Astyled is a haircare and styling brand for you - the modern curly, kinky, coily hair woman who wants to wear her hair naturally curly but in a way that still makes her look and feel chic stylish sexy, and professional (that straight hair did). Based on our countless conversations and interactions, (and being a naturally curly hair woman who also craves those same things), I have recognized that there are unique challenges that we face simply surrounding that balance of how we want to wear our hair. Therefore, I have designed a few products and services that cater to our specific haircare and styling needs. 

They are...

The Astyled Salon
which provides haircare, haircutting, hairstyling, and hair colouring services to enhance curly hair

The Astyled Shop
 which provides small luxe (mostly locally) hand-made hair, beauty, fashion, and lifestyle items 

The Astyled Society
which is a private membership-based club with access to exclusive content and discounts on services and products

It is my vision that these specially designed products and services can enhance your life (the way it has mine and those who have adopted them) in such a way that you can indeed effortlessly take care of and wear your hair the way you want to!

THE PERSON (Behind the brand)

Hey, I'm Astrel Medina, a Trinidadian-based Curl Specialist. Labeling myself as such sounds a bit strange because up until 6 years ago my degrees and career choices were based in Coastal Engineering. However, my own struggles with 'going natural' and finding solutions to those problems pulled me away from that path. My search to find out how best to take care of my hair, the right products, professional styles, someone to cut it led me to cosmetology, curl specific training, and to open my very own Curly hair-only salon. And so, for the last 6 years, it has been my utmost pleasure to not only transform curls from drab to fab - with my shears and colouring brush - but also my mission to enhance the lives of curly hair women (and their love for their hair), by teaching them what I've learned - simple science-based haircare methods and styling techniques.
