Lorraine is the best stylist I've ever been to. She knows how long to cut the layers to flatter my face. I have soft curls, sometimes less curls than waves, and she somehow shapes it to bring out natural-looking ringlets. I don't know how it works. Anyway, I'm low-maintenance in that I never blowdry and I don't wake up early enough to spend much time fixing my hair everyday, and after she cuts it, I really don't have to. I get a lot of compliments. After trying to find a salon closer to where I live, I gave up: I actually drive an hour each way to go to Karma.
She is young, sassy and knows how to handle curly hair! She took my mop top of half straightened from japanese treatment and half curly hair, and transformed my hair into an amazing cut and style. I constantly get compliments. She understands how curls work and how to make the most of them. For the first time in my life, I am proud to have curls thanks to Christie. Also she is amazing with a blow dryer and hot iron, she gets my ringlets which have the diameter of a pencil, super straight, silky and gorgeous looking. One more thing, the salon itself is a really nice atmosphere. The whole salon has a aromatherapy and buddas around. Its a nice slice of heaven in the middle of Downtown New Haven/Yale University area.
