Jan 23, 2009 - This was my first real curly cut ever, and Amanda was wonderful. She has had extensive training in cutting curls, including the Ouidad method, and the curly cut method taught at the Devachan salon in NY by Naturallycurly's own Lorraine Massey. She had the curly bible right there at her station, and I got to flip through it while I was getting dried. Amanda cut my hair completely dry, and had to cut off a bit more length than I would of liked because my ends were scraggly, which was a bummer. But she was very happy to hear that I am a no-poo and 'cones kind of girl. She walked through my whole hair-care routine with me and gave me some great tips. While she herself doesn't have curly hair, she was inspired by her curly sister and has trained with the best. Now I have a great haircut and will definitely go back--even if Amanda is a little bit pricey.
