Curly Girl - stop reading now. Slam your laptop lid down. Go see Callie. Seriously. Like NOW. I am so glad to have found the reviews for CL2 and Callie here. I have worn my hair naturally curly for many years and never been able to find a stylist who knew how to cut it properly. So I resorted to cutting it myself which over the years has left me with a shapeless limp mess of curls. Callie spent so much time with me. You get more than a haircut from her. It's like a total hair makeover. She plays with your hair for a while to see how it hangs, the condition it's in, how does your scalp look, etc. She asks you what you are hoping for with your cut, what your styling regimen is, and really gets to know you. She cuts hair dry which was a first for me but she could really see how each section of my hair behaved when doing so. After the cut I got a good wash and she took extra time to show me how to style my hair with various scrunching techniques (she also takes time to tell you what NOT to do in order to avoid frizz, damage, etc.). She counseled me on products, coloring techniques and answered tons of questions that I had. In the end I left with these amazing bouncy, springy, healthy curls that I was actually able to reproduce on my own thanks the all the tips and techniques she showed me. I will return to see her as long as she is in business. Thanks to all the curlies who took the time to review her. I hope this review will be helpful to another curlie friend in the area and please go see Callie. She has curly hair herself and seems to really specialize in it - which is hard to find. I wish I could give her 10 stars. Love my new do!
