Ambushed Curl Academy


The Ambushed Curl Academy was created by Ambushed Salon founder, Amy Bush, to provide hairstylists with education to learn about the art of curls through consultation, cutting, product knowledge and styling. Expect to be inspired, motivated and gain new perspectives in the online course, The 4 Pillars of ArchiTEXTURE, intended for hairstylists of any skill level.

With over three decades of experience in the hair industry, Amy Bush has attended, as well as taught, numerous education classes. She’s been completely fascinated and passionate about the art of naturally textured curly hair for a little over the last decade and has decided it’s time to share her knowledge to inspire the next generation of stylists through the Ambushed Curl Academy. Through her years of experience, she has developed her own set of unique techniques specifically for the naturally curly client.

She founded Ohio’s first curly hair salon, Ambushed Salon, in 2010. Amy wanted to cultivate a space where curly heads could come and feel like they belonged. To do this, she knew she needed to provide her own training for any stylists she decided to bring onto her team. This is done through the Curl Immersion Program: a customized learning program for every new stylist to learn all her curly hair secrets.

“Since I can only reach so many stylists through my hands-on program in the salon, I wanted a way to take the information global. Online education has been on my mind for several years and I am finally bringing it to fruition. Now, I can share my techniques and education on naturally curly hair with stylists across the globe, creating a bigger and better community of professionals to serve the world’s textures.”
