I have never had the pleasure of walking out of a salon and feeling the best I've ever had after getting a hair cut. I usually put it straight up into a pony tail and pray that the next time I wash it, it turns out the way I like. When I got my hair cut by marina she made me feel at ease. She walked me through it all. I have been searching for "the best" salons for me and to think it was right down the street.
