Feb 03, 2012 - Based on the recommendations from this site, I visited the salon twice. First time I chopped down a lot of my hair to try something new. She layered the back so much that after a year of growth, my hair is still very think on the bottom and growing it out has been a nightmare. Second time I went to see if maybe she'll do something better with my already bad hairstyle, but besides trimming the ends, she didn't do anything to help the curls form better or fix the awful choppy layers. She looked lost and confused as I tried to pinpoint the areas that needed to be fixed AFTER she already cut and styled it. I was very disappointed that she didn't have a clue about styling curly hair...she added a very light curling cream to my hair before drying it. Being a 3B which frizzes very easily...I ended up with super poofy bird's nest when I left the salon, no ringlets, no curls, just a big mess.. My hair needs hold- it needs a strong gel or mousse and/or smoothing serum to form and hold curls and diminish frizz, as a curly hair expert everyone claims she is, she should know this. I can do a 100% better job at styling my hair at home. So disappointed, I almost cried on my way home because it was a complete waste of my $$...I can't wear my hair down curly because it looks awful, so I'm wearing it pulled back until I have a few more inches of growth to try to even out the haircut. Now, if I can just find a stylist that will fix it.
