hands down, i would go to carlos at mario diab. heard james at mario diab (also formerly of devachan as is carlos) is fabulous. i think carlos does pintura too.
once, a long time ago, i had a haircut with ana. did not like the way she styled it at all. i had the impression from my one meeting with her and from what others have told me, she has a basic cut and does not like to deviate from that. plus, i think she is not ay devachan right now, i heard it was uncertain if she is coming back. i believe she is traveling. (unless you have called and she is back????)
carlos is AMAZING!! everyone i have recommended him to have thanked me over and over and keep seeing him and have referred others -- wavies, 3a, 3b, 3c, 4s. the man knows hair! carlos listens to you and talks with you.
let us know what you decide and how it turns out.
