I had been fighting my curly hair my whole life until I decided to try out the Styling Hutch. Claudia was my stylist, and she made me change my mind about my hair. She gave me a great cut and taught me how to use the Ouidad products. I have never been so happy about my hair.
While Sophia straightens her own hair, she's actually a curly/wavy girl herself so she "gets" curly hair. It's a nice place to get a hair cut from someone who undertands curly hair. Many "curly" salons are uber-expensive. A cut from Sophia was $30 (quite affordable in March 2009). And they offer other services, like coloring.
