- Emily Kleinsorge
Feb 08, 2012 - I've lived in almost ten US cities and countless ones around the world and have NEVER found a stylist as skilled with curly hair as Emily. I've tried out a few stylists I found through NC but she is by far the best. She gives expertly-shaped dry cuts, handling and forming each individual tendril - it's almost like watching a sculptor work. Her cuts last for months - I get compliments even three months after my last cut. She also does my high- and low-lights and nails it every time. Both the cut and color define my curls in a way that keeps my hair easy to style and looking its best. Okay, so that's the technical/talent part. Now for personality. The first time I had an appointment with Emily I felt like she was an old friend that just happened to know her way around a pair of scissors. She was welcoming, warm, funny and made me feel so comfortable. I can't even count how many stylists have tried to make themselves look better on my first visit by saying with disgust, "Um, who gave you your last haircut???" I hate that! Never with Emily - nothing judgmental or self-aggrandizing about her. I was worried that I had crossed my legs while sitting on the chair and that she'd be annoyed that my head was uneven (I guess I've been conditioned by stuffy stylists in the past) so I apologized and corrected my posture. She laughed. "I give cuts for real life and I'm assuming you're not always sitting stick straight, so don't worry about it." Could you hear my sigh of appreciation and relief? I wish I could give her a sixth scissor just for that.
