- Mark & Corie
Jan 10, 2011 - I had double process color with Corie and a haircut with Mark. Corie herself has naturally curly hair that is beautiful. She asked me how I wore my hair, whether I wanted natural looking or noticeable highlights, as well as color and tone. The highlights really make my curls stand out! I've had tons of compliments regarding them. Mark asked about my hair, my previous cuts, and my routine. I had been no pooing, and using pretty much a super soaker method. My hair is a 2C, but I've never really known how to achieve great results. I pretended it was straight most of my life and had blown it out and used flat irons. With my natural style, I had been using leave in conditioner, curl creme, gel, and diffusing with clips, then most of the time using a curling iron after on a few pieces to achieve a decent look. Mark said that sounded like a lot of work, and typical of curlies. He went in and provided some much needed layering in the back and I'm not sure what else he did, it seemed so effortless, but afterwards he just raked in some curl creme and diffused it without scrunching or touching. He did use a tiny bit of hairspray on the crown and diffused it upside down for root volume. The result was fabulous. It has been almost a month, and everyday I am loving my hair. I think it is the combination of great highlights and a perfect cut. I've cut down on product usage and time, and my hair looks better than ever! Of course the downside may be the price, but I had recently been to a salon downtown that was even pricier and had a stylist with curly hair, and she did not give me anywhere near the great cut that Mark did.
