Oct 09, 2013 - After reading the glowing reviews here on naturally curly, I decided to give Rick a try… Wow! So very glad I did. First, send him an email at RickEshane@aol.com. His Salon’s lease did not renew so he is in transition working at Solace Salon in Annapolis on Tu/W/Th/F. In the email, tell him your hair texture, if you color, what you want to achieve with your cut, and upload a pic to the email. Rick will respond with his cell number and openings for your appt. At the appt come with your hair styled. Rick will spend the time looking at your hair, your facial structure, he will touch your curls, see how they move, how they spring and coil, and he will listen – really listen to what you want to achieve with your cut. You get the feeling you are a canvas for his next masterpiece! Also, bring your styling gel and clips. Rick cuts a fantastic head of hair, but he does not style it. He sets you up at an open station with your gel and supplies you some clips if you did not bring them, and lets you do your thing, then you can sit under the dryer to finish. Frankly, I like that very much and he is right, curlies know best how to style their hair, I like that he gives that one to us! Oh! And don’t freak out – he cuts your hair wet, I was really leery of that because I have 3b coily hair and each one has it’s own length of snap. You just have to trust him on this one, seriously, have faith; he will not let you down. Moreover, he is a fantastic guy, personable and he puts you instantly at ease. I told him I was nervous about the cut; had a horrible experience that kept me away from stylists for four years! He got me over that one as soon as I emerged from the dryer! My hair looks amazing and it frames my face so flatteringly… When I left the salon, I felt like a million bucks for the bargain price of $45.00! You cannot go wrong with Rick! Go confidently and you will emerge happy & beautiful!
