What I did, since I recently moved to a new town - I called every salon in the yellow pages and asked if they had a stylist who knew how to cut naturally curly hair. Some said "all of our stylists are well-trained" and I wrote those off as a "no." One I DID find said YES, we have someone on staff who's curly herself and knows how to deal with curls. And that's how I found my stylist (who's CG BTW! All her products are cone free and she does sulfate-free washes as well!). She since moved on to another salon but I just follow her.
She charges $45 and I have never ever had a bad cut from this woman. She's a goddess. So they DO exist out there - you just have to be patient and do your homework!
