I can't remember if I posted about this when it was first done and I'm feeling too lazy to look (LOL) but anyway, this is an update.

I had butchered my hair by attempting my own cut and in desperation I went to Cristin at Takamichi, after reading lots of the reviews for various salons here on nc.com. I think she is a genius. I've had consistently great first day hair for the first time in my life. I'm still figuring out how to get 2nd day hair but believe me, having great 1st day hair is a major accomplishment.

I recommend her without hesitation and I've been to a great many other salons in NYC that didn't live up to the hype. She didn't use CG type products but I will ask her to do so when I return and I think she will be accommodating because she is very pleasant. The bottom line is that she gave me a gorgeously shaped cut and fixed the disaster that I walked in with. If you go, please post about your experience.
2/c. Coarse hair med. density.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Smasters!
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets or use a curling brush - classic glamor.
Every day is a gift
