I have to agree with "sweetas17". I am not sure Mark knows curly hair?? I have naturally curly hair - the first time he cut my hair - it was very very short! I do wear my hair short - but was not prepared for that. He cut my hair about 2-3 more times, He used a razor. May be he is good with other types of hair? I had to stop going to him - I never knew what I my hair was going to look like. I always felt rushed, and had my appointments changed...
I went to this salon because after reading the reviews on here I thought I had finally found a great hair stylist who knew how to cut curly hair! Well, on his website it says he specializes in curly hair, but does cutting curly hair require washing it, brushes it out, straightening it with a high-heat blow-dryer, and then flat ironing it pin straight BEFORE he cuts it? I follow the CG method and have read a lot of information to stay away from brushes, blow dryers and especially flat irons. I just felt (and smelt) my hair frying as he was straightening it. Sorry, but a true hair stylist that is experienced with cutting curly hair does not straighten it first. I will not be going back to him. I rated 3 because he does have some knowledge on curly hair, but has now damaged my hair and will take weeks to repair/restore.
Mark knows exactly what to do when it comes to curly hair. I had an out grown short hair cut and he added the correct amount of layers just for curly hair. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He answered all my questions and I highly recommend him.
I first read about Mark on this website. Apparently he had just left Winston Salem, NC at the time. You will not find a better stylist for curly hair anywhere!!!!!!! I have been to so many others in the past, and have shed my fair share of tears over the years from bad experiences at salons...but not anymore! Mark will give you a great cut that takes very little maintenance, if you wish. Styling my hair has never been easier, and I have never gotten more compliments on my hair!!! If you go see him, tell him Kim sent you!
