Stylist: Courtney

Rating: Salon Rating: 5 Scissors

Short version: Courtney cut my voluminous mass of 3c (tight, kinky curls) with expert skill and when I left the salon, I wanted to tour Portland, showing off her handiwork – I recommend Courtney with my whole heart. Go to her. Go now.

Long version: It took me a year to find Courtney after I moved to Oregon from Arizona. I'm 35 years old; I have several different hair types (3b/c/?) co-existing on my head reflecting my diverse heritage; and, I have a tremendous amount of hair. By the time I went to see Courtney, I had been growing my hair out for over a year – there was a lot of hair for her to contend with and yet she did so with ease.

I've never, ever had such a positive hair experience.

In prior years, after getting a haircut, I'd run to my car and zoom home because I'd never want to be seen by the public. But with Courtney, I wanted to parade around like a peacock – my hair looked amazing. That has just plum never happened to me before.

I have gone to stylists who claim to know curly hair but really have no clue at cutting anything beyond loose type curl patterns (2b/c) – for lack of a better phrase "white-girl curls".

Courtney asked all the right questions to assess my hair goals and explained thoroughly her approach before cutting my hair dry.

She was meticulous. It took two hours total to cut my hair, non-stop. She was attentive to every single curl pattern on my head.

Then she colored my hair with delicious, caramel-y highlights.

Then she styled my hair with DevaCurl products.

And now I'm a new woman.

I'm so grateful I found Courtney – I recommend her without hesitation.

If you are skeptical, GO SEE COURTNEY. After having either crappy, mediocre or boring haircuts by people who claim to know how to cut curly hair, it's hard not to doubt. 

Man, was I wrong! This woman is a genius with curly hair. She KNOWS curly hair. It's hard to explain, but she understands it, that is, she knows how to cut and shape so the hair falls exactly how you want it to fall. She also asks about your experience of your hair and aspirations about it.

Courtney definitely gave me THE BEST haircut I've ever had, and that's no exaggeration. She did exactly what I wanted, gave me awesome volume with definition, and also exceeded all my expectations. Her technique is flawless. She also shows you the best way to style hair for perfect curls that lasted 3 and almost 4 days.
She is also amazing with straight and wavy hair, and hairdos.

Courtney, you have a talent. So happy to have found you. If you move, I will follow you anywhere!

IIf you're in need of a CurlyGirl sylist, look no further, Courtney is your -go-to-CurlGirl ! She knows her curls on her girls, I am proof of that. I went in with some Wild & Crazy Hair, by the time Courtney walked me through the steps she was going to take with my "mop", and actually proceeded with her steps, my MOP was no longer a MOP ! My hair turned out great! My salt & pepper, sassy curls move to their own rythm, yet they are tamed. I found the BEST curly girl for my hair. I highly recommend Courtney , you won't be sorry!

After visit salon after salon, "curl expert" after "curl expert," I am here to report that FINALLY, after all this time, I have found the most amazing, incredible, unbelievably knowledgeable curly hair specialist I have ever known. Courtney is amazing, there are not enough words to describe how wonderful she is and how happy I am. I have been through the absolute worst experiences with my hair. In just one visit, Courtney taught me all about my curls and the extreme care and love and attention they need. She is the first stylist to ever cut my hair properly, I honestly couldn't believe what a difference the right cut made! She taught me how to use the right products in order to add protein and strength back into my damaged, dry, broken, over processed hair. Best of all, she was completely straight forward about what we can and cannot do with my hair right now. I am dying to go back to a lighter color, but due to the horrendous breakage from awful experiences in the past, she kindly explained the moves we can and cannot make at this time, all in the very best interest of the health of my hair. I completely trust her plans for my curls, and could not be more ecstatic to have found this girl.

I just had my first haircut from Courtney, and I predict this to be a long and fruitful relationship. She's wonderful! I got a fantastic haircut and I can't wait to try the new "curly girl" techniques she shared with me. She spent time, listened to my ideas and concerns, and worked with me to get the best style for my curls. She loves hair, loves curls and loves to share her knowledge and expertise. I can't recommend her enough!

Courtney is the stylist I've been searching for since I moved to Portland from New York City! I have been to several stylists here who have said they "know how to cut curly hair", then proceeded to cut it as if it's straight. Courtney is clearly passionate about curly hair, and took the time to study my hair type and cut it accordingly. She came to my home, which was wonderful, and spent over 2 hours with me, cutting & explaining curl care. She also delivered conditioner and product a week later when I decided to purchase some. Courtney is a recent transplant to Portland, and I am SO HAPPY to have found her!
