Oh, that's not good! Let me know how you get on at the other place!
I must admit that I always ask for my hair to be straightened when I have it cut, mainly because I'm never happy when someone else tries to dry it curly and I like to be able to see the shape and work out for myself how it'll look curly. At the moment it's quite long, but it's in a 'straight hair style' and that means I always tie it back when I wear it curly and I want to stop doing that!....Stop tying it up, not stop wearing it curly ;0)
I'll just have to keep an eye out for curly haired hairdressers, or think about re-training?!
Where did you move from?
