- Matthew James
Apr 11, 2010 - I would recommend Matthew James in Birmingham. I found the good reviews here about how Matthew treats curly heads and thought I would check him out. Having found no-one in Glasgow or Edinburgh (where I live - my family lives in Birmingham) to deal with my very tight curly, almost afro, mixed race hair, I was at a loose end! I found his service to be lovely. I had a thorough chat with a cuppa beforehand to decide on what I wanted and I showed him some pictures I’d found of the style I was after, which he wasn’t dismissive about as some hairdressers are. With the cut itself, he didn’t rush and I was getting A LOT of hair cut off (about 4-5 inches I reckon). After a day or two, it settled into it’s style and it’s super cute.
