I went to Kate last week after reading the positive review on her on this site. Though I appreciate my thick, curly hair, I have struggled w/ it for years, never having been able to achieve any style I've really loved (think the dreaded mushroom, the dreaded box look). Well, she gave me the most fantastic cut--w/ deft scissor technique she took out the bulk while leaving the length--which is what I've been after forever. And going forward, she has a vision for my hair that matches my own. In addition to really, truly understanding curly hair and how to work with and cut it, she is bright, articulate, and a complete professional and loves to discuss with you her ideas and vision, but never forcing it on you. She's got a new customer for life! Thank you, naturallycurly.com, for existing and helping me find the stylist I've been looking for my whole life! (FYI, she is also the same Kate at Chameleon Salon in North Haven, reviewed in 2007--she no longer works there but owns Salon Space!)
I have searched for years to find someone who understands my curls! Kate takes the time to listen to what I am looking for and I leave the salon with a beautiful set of curls instead of a frizzy head of curls. If your looking for someone who knows how to cut curls she is the one.
