I hear you!! I fear haircuts and avoid them as much as possible. It's a nightmare finding someone who knows what they are doing. I've even been to deva stylists and had bad experiences. It's a problem with education... most stylists never learn to work with natural curls. It's not a part of their curriculum. Such a huge oversight!! I'm thinking of teaching myself to self trim. Can't be any worse than what bad stylists have done to me!
