#1: More saga of the stylist..
So: after being charged for styling my OWN hair at the chi chi salon, I decided i'm outta there. I have not really left satisfied in all three visits; each time there was a problem, either my hair felt like it was glued, or, being charged for services, IMHO, not rendered. Recently I had consults with 2 stylists; both were nice enough but from there the paths diverged. The second stylist was very personable, talked about products, styling, respected my knowledge of CG, products and styling - AND she knows about NC.com! She does not work for a salon per se; she has a chair and rents the space, I guess more and more stylists are doing this, I assume so that they do not have to fork over half of what they charge. As a result, her prices are very reasonable. She is not very conveniently located, but I guess a gal cannot have it all. She was recommended here on the site, so I am going with her. Scheduled to have my roots done next week.
