Any NYC Area Stylist Recommendations for Shaping an Afro Wash and Go Shrunken?

Does anyone have any recommendations for NYC area stylists that are able to cut and shape an afro-ish wash and go in its shrunken state? This may be a dumb question, but I want to make sure I get a "feminine" cut. Plus, I get like 80% shrinkage so I don't have much length to try repeat cuts.

Backstory

I used to be more active on these forums a few years ago and the biggest theme of my hair was that it does not like to do ANYTHING but a wash and go. I have tiny low elasticity, coffee-sized defined coils all over my head that like to gather up into knots if combed.

In an effort to be able to stretch and style my hair like other naturals, I trimmed my ends over and over and tried so many products I lost count. Convinced it was the result of damage, I finally chopped off seven years of growth only to have the same problems all over again.

Lesson learned? My hair simply can't be traditionally detangled with a comb or, as a result, stretched. So I stopped. My hair is doing fine thus far, looks great and is growing.

BUT, one problem. I got an asymmetrical cut when I big chopped the second time and now it's growing out with this weird shelf at the back of my head where I had two different lengths. So I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a salon or stylist that can shape my wash and go without it being stretched.

Thanks so much, guys. Definitely going to check him out. Probably call and set up a consult shortly. Can't wait to shape up this fluff ball.
