19 miles is nothing for a deva stylist, assuming she is good.
i drive more than that, and in manhattan traffic, to get to carlos flores -- well worth it. without traffic it only takes an hour, but because i never know, i have to allow at least 5 hours to drive in, drive back, and time for haircut, maybe a quick dry or not. but to me, it is worth it as i only go (well, when i'm not in the process of growing out my gray hair as i am right now) once every 4 months. and i have a good hair day every day.
