The worst hair cut of my life. The worst dye job of my life. Loretta DeBrule suggested a base color similar to my own hair with "soft subtle brown highlights". She gave me very dark brown/black hair in the front /bangs and milk chocolate in the middle section and medium brown in the back with "manilla envelope" orange colored highlights in sporadic weird locations that make no sense in location or how or where my hair grows. She colored my hair first and then cut it when it was still wet. Anyone who claims to cut curly hair knows you don't DO that with curly hair. She also pulled my wet hair down and cut it... I saw it spring back up and new right then and there that I was in trouble. I told her I was trying to grow it out. I had not had a cut in over 4 months (from very very short to ringlet curls).... she cut half of it off. HALF! I had "wings" sticking out above my ears!!! She told me my hair was "angry" from being handled too much when I told her I look like "Little Orphan Annie". She said to give it a week or two and to get back to her if I had an questions. I found her on www.naturallycurly.com. She came highly recommended... big mistake. I asked her if she was familiar with cutting naturally curly hair and she assured me she was. My friends told me to contact her to allow her the opportunity to fix it but I can't afford another $215 !!! It's been 2 weeks. My hair is still angry and so am I.
I've had my last couple of haircuts from Stacy Curns at Right Angle (not Stacey Hambley -- there are 2 different Stacy's at the salon!). I've loved both cuts. I have type 3b-3c hair, and I had to ask Stacy to rescue me from a horrible haircut. She did a great job and what's more, she is very good about being on time and not having you sit in the salon and wait.
Formerly at the Hair Tailor, Montclair...now cutting at The Right Angle Salon in Rockridge. I had to google her to get her phone number. I am so glad to have found her again. Her color work is amazing,as well as cutting my fine, curly hair.
