Apr 14, 2014 - Marlene is a self proclaimed curl specialist (her shop says so on the big banner outside). My rating has to do with my experience in having her cut MY hair. I have a 3c/4a hair type. According to my research tightly curly hair like mine should be cut dry in it's natural state. Never wet, never combed out. As soon as I walked into her shop she wet my head and then began to comb it out to cut it. I was disappointed in myself for not leaving when she asked me to go to the shampoo bowl when I walked in the door. She only had one set of light products that she uses on all types of curly hair. My hair needs heavier products. However, I will say she is very nice, very organized and prompt with her appointments. But she was the wrong choice for me as far as cutting my hair.
