- Carlos & James
Jul 24, 2008 - Carlos and James have my unqualified recommendation. If you aren't in the neighborhood, they are worth the trip. I'm growing my very curly, but thin and fine hair. The last "curly specialist" did a terrible job. After 15 weeks, I didn't really want it shorter, but I needed a better shape -- and I had terrible roots (that looked worse b/c my hair had been highlighted too blonde!) Carlos knows curly hair. He knows where you've been. He knows where you want to go. In my many, many years of wearing curly hair, no one had ever cut it dry. Carlos cut it dry and he did a great job! Knowing I want to grow it long (and how long that takes), Carlos didn't touch the length. It seemed he didn't do alot, but what he did do resulted in an enormous improvement. My hair has looked great every day since my Carlos cut -- rain or shine, heat or humidity! Carlos is a curly-hair genius. Bring him your hair with confidence. James take his color seriously. He presented me with a book of pictures so we could be on the same page about what color we each had in mind. [What a great idea!]. It happened we had the same picture/color in mind. James did a masterful job painting my highlights (no foils!)and correcting the blonde. My hair color looks natural and warm. Mario Diab is a comfortable salon without midtown attitude. Carlos and James are great guys, so you'll be comfortable while you are there - and you will be delighted with the results after you leave.
