Jul 31, 2009 - I recently moved to the DC area from Florida and was excited to try a salon specializing in curly hair. I was disappointed. My hair was so frizzy when I left I was embarrassed to ride the bus home. I put my hair in a bun as soon as I left.
I met with Lauren before scheduling my appointment to explain what I wanted. I have 3c hair that is normally cut dry. However, once a year, I like the split ends trimmed with a wet cut, followed by shaping with a dry cut. I told her I would pay extra if necessary since it takes more time to cut both wet and dry. She seemed to understand curly hair and said she could cut my hair as described.
The day of the appointment I found out that Lauren schedules one-hour appointments and then you are out the door. There is no way to consult, wash, cut, style, dry and shape long 3c hair in that time. I thought, she'll probably put me under a drier after my appointment and then shape my hair with a dry cut in between appointments. That didn't happen. She shaped my hair during the wet cut, unbeknown to me! Now I am back to triangle hair with a distinct shelf in the back, two things Lauren agreed we were trying to avoid. My hair also appears to be different lengths in the back since the curls dry differently. I do not trust Lauren to fix my hair. I will wait until my hair grows out and find someone else. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
