I just switched to Laura from Kristi in Lakewood (ONLY because of timing and location!!). She is so nice, professional and absolutely knows alot about curls! She talks about "curl pattern" (so important) and even takes notice of any different textures of curl you may have in your hair. The cut she gave me was amazing and she's great at suggesting products (it's an Aveda salon) and also how to use them. If you're in the Boulder, Louisville, Lafayette area and you have curly hair, definitely give her a try. I came from NYC and went Ouidad for years so I am VERY picky.
