- Aundrea and Rita
Nov 06, 2009 - I tried another stylist after not being very happy with my cut with Aundrea. I was even more disappointed after the 2nd try. Both stylists were pleasant people, and listened to what I wanted and then tried to deliver. Problem being, they really DON'T know how to cut curly hair on people who want to wear it naturally. Neither stylist actually looked at MY curl pattern before cutting. Both insisted on straightening my hair to style it, with tons and tons of heavy-silicone laden products. (3 shampoos after BOTH visits, just to get rid of enough buildup that I didn't keep frizzing from the cones.) Even though both stylists stated they had naturally curly hair, both had their hair ironed when I saw them. So maybe their solution to naturally curly hair is to coat it with as many silicone products as they can find, and then flatiron it? They probably frequent this site and know all the right buzzwords,Curly Girl technique, not overwashing, avoiding cones, etc. But they just don't really know HOW to look at a natural curl pattern and work with it. I now have poodle-flaps over my ears after my hair dries naturally, which Rita never saw coming because she insisted on straightening my hair! And despite the claims of the stylists, receptionists, and other reviewers, I did not actually see a head of natural, not curled in with a flatiron, curls on the head of ANY stylist at that salon during my 2 visits.
