I agree - Nick on "What Not To Wear" is one of the very few stylists I've seen who will work with
curly hair, rather than against it. I think it may be because he's a curly himself.
Makeover shows need more like him - and so do salons. I've given up on finding a stylist who knows how to style my hair curly. When I get a cut, I either leave with my hair wet or let them do a blowout. Whenever someone has tried to make me curly, it's, well, not pretty.
