Mar 29, 2011 - Umm, I don't know if those that gave Nicole rave reviews are friends of hers or if they just had a much better experience than me. The cut was not terrible but her ability to style curly hair (or at least my curls 3a/3b) was awful. There was a lot of scrunching and no focus on curl definition at all. I came out looking like a frizzy poodle. I was hesitant to go to a Sears salon but I'd read good things about her on this site. I'm writing this to dissuade others from making the same mistake I did. I would recommend going somewhere that specializes in curly hair so that you don't come away like me - wanting to hide as you run to your car!
