I recommend Leslie Ellen Abate. (Her website is Leslie Loves Curls).

I have 2c-3a hair. I've been to several of the supposedly top stylists in NYC and she outdid all of them. When I saw her she didn't want to cut my hair because she said my problem wasn't my current haircut - it had to do with the way I was applying dye. She explained how I ought to apply the dye and said she wouldn't charge me for the appt. She was so honest!

In the end I persuaded her to go ahead and cut my hair and she gave me a terrific trim in all the right places.

Leslie cut my hair wet but the cut has lasted longer than any other I've had and I can wear it curly or use a curling brush for waves.

I've heard good things about Carlos and Leslie has a slew of enthusiastic reviews on the web so I think you won't go wrong with either one. Please let us know how it turns out and very best of good luck!
2/c-3a Coarse hair med. density.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
Every day is a gift
