- Stacie Green
Oct 01, 2010 - I found out about this salon today via naturallycurly.com and immediately made an appointment to get a much needed haircut. My hair really was a "mane." I loved its fullness, but it had no shape. As it continued to grow both outward and in length it became more and more difficult to manage, not to mention the damage it was doing to all of my bathroom drains. I've never been comfortable with anyone cutting my hair since I've been natural (3yrs) because everyone I go to wants to treat my hair the same way they treat straight hair: soak it, pull it taut, and cut the ends straight across, all done with a fine tooth comb. And then they have the nerve to look at me like it's *my* fault their comb snapped in half. This time, however, was completely different. Stacie sat me down in her chair, sectioned off parts of my hair, and started snipping away. No combs, no water, no pulling! She meticulously focused on each curl, how it lay against my head, and judged where to cut it based on those factors alone (from what I can tell). This makes the process take a bit longer than your average haircut, but it is well worth the wait. Stacie's a delight to talk to, she doesn't try to push retail on you, and you can tell that she's completely focused on doing things right. After the cut, she washed me and set me under the dryer for about 20 minutes. Then we sat in her chair again and she had me evaluate the cut based on how it lay naturally after being soaked. I had her tweak a few things here and there, but not too much. I had the cut I wanted. I am totally satisfied with her work and I will recommend her to everyone I know.
