My teenage daughter and I are both extremely happy with how our hair looks and behaves since we've been seeing Julie. Our cuts work with rather than against our natural wave/curl, making it easy for our hair to look great every day with a minimal amount of effort. I highly recommend Julie...she's one of those rare stylists who really know how to handle all types of hair.

Julie has been cutting and coloring my hair for over 5 years and it has never looked better. She really understands curly hair and brings out the best in my 2B locks. Would recommend her highly.

I have witnessed Julie’s growth, as a hairstylist from her days at Continental Academy of Hair Design to now. It is hard to find a hairdresser that, first listens to you, secondly completely enjoys their work. Julie has both of these qualities. I have lost count of the number of people I have recommended to her. Awhile ago a friend on Facebook, was asking if anyone knew of a stylist in her area that was good with curly hair. I immediately responded to her, telling her about Julie. While home on break from college, I was lucky enough to have Julie cut my sons hair. During his college years, he has continually come home with various lengths of hairstyles. The joys of them growing up and making their own choices. Feel free to keep it longer, but get it styled by someone that knows what he or she is doing, mom’s famous words to him during each visit. He has beautiful hair with natural curls’, with the right cut, regardless of its length, I knew there must be a happy medium. After several cuts with various stylists while at college, we were lucky enough to get it cut by Julie! She is awesome, I had told her of my ideas, but it was not my hair. Julie discussed his hair with him. They talked of his busy college schedule, what he wanted for a style. Julie is a miracle worker. I was very impressed, best of all so was he. She is without a doubt the best. Have you ever known someone with that totally out of control natural curly, wiry hair, that you know if only they had the right stylist? Send them to Julie; it could be a life changing experience for them seriously. She is that good.

From Straight to Curly in one cut!! Throughout the years I have not had great haircuts and have constantly straightened my hair to avoid the frizz. I was fortunate to hear about Julie and booked an appointment. During my booking, Julie asked that I wear my hair the way I try to style it every day and not in a pony tail or a hat. When I arrived at the salon, Julie took the time to talk with me about my hair - likes and dislikes, level of dedication to my daily hair routine, color, cut, etc. Well, I left the salon and for once did not go home to wash and restyle my hair and have had many compliments about my hair and people ask where I get my hair cut. It has been almost 1 year and I have not used my straightener........Thank you will never be enough!!! Julie you are a great stylist!!!

Julie by far is my most favorite hair dresser. I am 29 years old and can say that she has been the only hair dresser that has ever been able to cut my hair exactly the way that I want it. She is very talented!

Julie is the best! She's been specially trained for curly hair and it definitely shows. She also has a warm and easygoing personality; in fact, everyone at this charming, neighborhood salon is very nice. So go see Julie - you'll be glad you did!

A little over 4.5 years ago I happened to be strolling in the Old Port and came across Julie Washington. We had instant hair chemistry and I made an appointment with her that day. My hair is very curly and the right cut is essential to it's health and beauty. Julie is the only person I trust with my hair and she has never let me down from day 1. She truly is a "Curly Hair Expert". Everyone with curly hair should be going to her. A HUGE added bonus....she's also a fantastic colorist and make-up artist so she's a one-stop shop. Check her out at The Estuary in South Portland at 96 Ocean St. Your curls will thank you.

I just returned from having Julie cut my hair based upon the recommendations on this site and I am very pleased with the result. She clearly knows how to cut curls and I don't feel as if my hairs been just chopped up in any way. I highly recommend her as a stylist! She listened to what I had to say and helped me to understand my own hair better. If you live in Maine or NH and have curly hair, you've got to see Julie!

I admit, I've hopped on the Julie Washington bandwagon! After several years of getting decent, low-price haircuts and color from another stylist, I tried Julie on a whim before a vacation. Just like all the reviews state, she listened, she observed the nuances of my hair, she patiently explained why the haircuts I'd been getting were the wrong shape for my hair's potential. She suggested - not in a pushy way - another way I could do color to make it look more natural and cover premature graying, without drying up my hair. I have gotten dozens of hair compliments since seeing her. Don't miss this saavy stylist!

Oh the bittersweet joys of curly hair!! Julie is amazing. As any of you with curly hair know, it is tough to break in a stylist, let alone find someone who actually has an inkling of what curly hair is all about. Julie listens to you as you explain your desires for a look you'd like to have and the history of your curly experience. She'll tell you if the style you have in mind will actually work with your specific type of curl. Kudo of all Kudos, she did not force an array of product on me. Although she did give advice of products that she likes and has seen success with. If you're struggling with your curls and wanting to find someone to help you embrace your curls, Julie's your girl!

I found Julie from this website. I have to say that I have never liked the look of my hair, ever. I have always worn it up. Julie took over and said that I was hiding it because I never had the right cut. I have never ever had layers, because I thought they were taboo! Julie not only added some layers, she thinned it out. My hair and I still have issues to work out. HOWEVER, I love the way Julie cuts my hair and how she is honest about the look and style. I will continue to see Julie! I recommend anyone with curly hair to see Julie for a consultation.

I went to see Julie by both the recommendation of the site and a friend. She did a wonderful job on my hair. It was the first time anyone paid attention to the details of my curly hair. She selectively removed alot of the bulk, leaving my hair lighter, softer, and with more curl definition. It was also the first time I didn't have go home to shower and redo my hair! She knows her curls!
