The curl salon section isn't really helping me decide where to go. The reviews for the above salons are *shining* but no curly members have posted their names after their reviews. It would be nice to be able to have some sort of idea who is writing these reviews (members or not). I have so many questions! ahhhhh....

So I can't decide.

I am really on a tight budget but I want to get a cut, base color & some highlights done. Already $$$, I know I have never been to these salons.

Could any reviewers for any of the above salons let me know how your experience went and how much you spent (so I have an idea)? Thanks in advance
