Jun 02, 2011 - A couple of months ago I had tried to get an appointment with Chai (based on her great reviews) but our schedules didn't mesh. The Proper receptionist was so kind and told me that they were available with other curly stylist if my search for a highly rated stylist didn't work out. I then found a stylist with great reviews at another salon. I live in a small town so I was driving 300 miles and staying overnight at a Portland hotel for this haircut. Minutes before my appointment at the "other" salon, they called my cell phone to notify me that the stylist was sent home sick and they had no other curly stylists available. You can imagine how frustrated I was... and desperate! Since I was in Portland without an appointment any longer, I called the Proper with my fingers crossed. Frenchie LaTourneau was available so I gratefully accepted the timeslot. Frenchie was terrific. We've all had terrible haircuts so I was surprised at how confidently she approached my hair. It was clear that she knew what she was doing. I would definitely recommend Frenchie!!
