- Leslie Ellen Abbate
Mar 28, 2013 - Leslie Ellen is a great curly-hair stylist! After embracing my natural biracial 3b/3c curly hair in 2007, I have seen my fair share of curl cutting "experts". Leslie Ellen has saved my style and my sanity! I went through the devachan phase, and ended up with the same cut as every other person who has been to devachan. I went to another 'expert' and ended up with triangle-head. Hair grows back, right? So I stayed with this expert a few years until I decided to try a new color and ended up with terrible, streaky platinum highlights in my dark brown hair. Enter Leslie Ellen in 2012; she was able to get a more natural color and give me a great cut that drew out my curls. It was curly-bob like, but better and my curls responded very well to it. Every time I see her, I end up with a lovely cut with a great shape that differs from other curly girls. The cuts grow out really well, and still look good on the rare occasion that I straighten it. She has a peach of a personality and the salon location is pretty accessible by public transportation. If you want a great curly cut, that grows out well AND looks good straight, Leslie Ellen is your lady!
