East 42nd Street Salon
- Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States
May 19, 2010 - This wasn't just a haircut; it was an education!
Sam took loads of time dry-cutting each curl at just the right point so they hang nicely instead of bushing out like a shrub. Then she washed and conditioned my hair, instructing me every step of the way so I could do it correctly at home.
After that, she trimmed the curls a second time to make sure everything was just right.
Most of the stylists at this salon have been trained in the Massey way of curl cutting (she wrote the book, "Curly Girl"), so they really know what they're doing. Sam treated my curls like they were delicate little flowers; she was so careful and respectful!
They sent me home with shampoo & conditioner samples, which was a nice bonus. Once I figure out which works best, I'll go in and buy.
Be warned though: because they take so much pride in what they do, my cut took an hour and 50 minutes, but it was worth it!
