I grew up in Maine and have lived many other places over the past 10 years. However, whenever possible I wait to get my haircut back in Maine by Thuy. She has curly/wavy hair, so she understands how to cut and style curly hair (and understands what NOT to do!). I have ALWAYS had a cut that I love when I leave the salon. I have never found another hair sylist that compares to Thuy. She also does an amazing job styling curly hair - you will leave the salon feeling great - whether you go curly or straight.
