I have 3c hair which is rare for a white girl on the prairies of Canada, and Lynda not only understands how to cut curly hair, but she LISTENS to your ideas. She will examine your hair before it is washed to look at the curl patterns, and to see the health status of it. And she will make suggestions as to style, cut, color - everything! My last haircut with her was a trim, and she went over my head 3 times and cut and shaped for over 45 minutes! Her cuts grow out very well, and I normally only need a cut every 9-12 months.
