I gave Stephanie a 5 out of 5 because 1) She is cordial and professional at all times while making a visit to the hair salon (which I hate) fun and relaxing. 2) She discusses EVERYTHING she has in mind prior to beginning. And that's at EVERY visit. 3) She clearly knows curly hair. She has curly hair and, as she discusses your hair with you it's clear that she knows what she is talking about. She asks the right questions about everything ranging from your routine, products, lifestyle, desired results, and even how much you want to spend. 4) She keeps neat, clean station and tools. 5) She keeps me looking good on a budget. Even when her prices went up to Master Stylist (yay!!) I was more than happy to pay because I knew I was getting a steal all along. I moved to Atlanta and miss her much. For the first few months I simply went all of the way back to NJ when I needed a trim.
I just started my locs and I must say that I am so happy that I did! Leslie's consultation made me feel both at ease and excited about my decision. She really seems to care about the health of my hair. We discussed everything from products all the way down to how to tie up my hair. She also listened to me which is very important. So many stylists do what they want but she put me first. I would recommend Leslie for all of your haircare and styling needs.
I wish I could add pictures so you can see what she was able to do with my hair. She is an excellent stylist. She was able to focus on SHAPE when she cut my hair, just like I wanted, and she also considers health. She only did what I asked and asked before she did anything else. Excuse me, but I think it's a wonderful blessing to be able to find in anyone who can cut curly african american hair anywhere, let alone in our small town. Check her (or Leslie) out if you have curly, natural, permed hair or want to experiment with any of the above.
I really like change. So I needed a haircut that could go from curly to straight and still look good. Brenda answered all my weary questions, explained what she would do and what the results would be. She gave me her portfolio and showed me a couple of different looks that would work for me. She explained what my hair needs to acheive the seperate looks I wanted. I had a very good experience.
Brenda listened to my tale of woe from a previous stylist and then patiently worked step by step and talked me through each phase before any cutting occurred. She knows curly hair! She offered to blow dry, but I requested styling tips for making my combination hair look good. Compliments are pouring in! Thanks, Brenda!!
