- Annie Grieve
Feb 09, 2011 - While I didn't have Annie do a lot to my hair, I did ask that she trim and shape it a little, in an effort to assist with the asthetics of my curls while attempting to grow my hair out. She spent a good amount of time assessing my hair and curl pattern, explained why I have some of the issues I have (the grow pattern of my hair itself and the "halo" of curl challenged section that runs around my entire head). We discussed my cleansing and conditioning regime, and she proceded to trim the ends of each curl, explaining that she was cutting each end with a tapering in the direction of the curl, in order to avoid those random ends that stick out like antenna. All in all it was a good experience and definately encouraging to sit down with a stylist who understands the different needs of curly hair versus straight hair (or simply understands that there is a difference in needs for that matter). Annie was great and when it comes time to actually develope a style for my hair, rather then this grow out experiment phase, she will be the one I go to.
