Sep 11, 2010 - Ok, everyone seems to love Marty, so based on all the recommendations here (there were so few negative and so many people loving him) I thought I'd give it a go.. I was at a point of frustration, My hair used to be a lot curlier (closer to 3a, and now it's more of a 2b-2c. I explained to Marty, he nodded knowingly, and we agreed to cut 2 inches of length and layer to encourage hairgrowth. I have fine hair.. His cutting seemed like he knew what he was doing, I thought it stange that he brushed out my hair (think frizzball), because it meant that you wouldn't see the natural curl. He cut, and cut..... and cut.. Then he went about styling it. The styling was a disaster. He pretty much did everything possible to NOT have clumps. He did everything I would NEVER do to my hair: He blowdried it and THEN diffused when it was already dry (so.. no chance at curl enhancement or formation there), and he broke up clumps rather than promoting them. I was pretty gutted, and I figured it was styling, so I'd just go home, shower, and do it my way. I'm waiting for my hair to dry.. and while yes, the layers have promoted curl.. we definitely cut off more than 2 inches. It's more like 4" of UNSTRETCHED hair.. meaning that it's probably more like 5". I'm pretty bummed, because he also cut a lot out from underneathe, so now i feel like I barely have any hair. I had told him how much I loved the ringlets at the bottom of my hair.. he promised that it would do it again with the new length.. so far.. notsomuch. I really wanted to like Marty; he sounded like a bonafide curl whisperer.. I think he's better suited to 3+ curls.. I think anyone with a 2 or a weak curl pattern should stay away.
