I have been to many salons in three different states since we have moved a lot due to my husband's work. When we moved to Concord, NC, I found Darlene and it was my saving grace! My hair is naturally curly and I've always hated it. Darlene has a knack for cutting my curly hair and I no longer hate it. She taught me the importance of using the right products and conditioner. She showed me several different styling products to use so I can make the most of my curl or make an easier task out of smoothing it out to wear it straight. I've never had so much versatility with my hair before! I am so very happy, words can not explain! If you have curly hair, this is the stylist to see. She does well with straight hair too, my daughter got her dad's straight hair and she's very happy with the services Darlene has given her too. Darlene has us as new clients for life!
