Apr 27, 2010 - I recently took the advice of some of the other curlies on this site and made an appointment with Anson at Howard Jacobs salon. I have to say, I like my curly 3b hair in the winter, but in the summer I absolutely hate it. I have a ton of hair and the NC humidity makes it 3x bigger. After venting to Anson he suggested a Keratin treatment. I had researched this treatment prior and considered it out of my reach because of the price. Well, since Anson's prices were so reasonable and he seemed so knowledgeable, I said "Go For It". My hair was colored, highlighted, straightened (Keratin treatment) and cut today. Wow, what a difference!! My hair looks (and feels) FANTASTIC!! And the deal Anson gave me on all of these services was nothing less than phenomenal. I think he was as excited as I was with the transformation. This was the best salon experience I have ever had (which says a lot). I am not only grateful, I am extremely impressed. Like I said, I love curly, but this change is wonderful. I had such a great time today (the entire staff is very friendly) and I am honestly looking forward to my next appointment.
