Aug 02, 2008 - Wow!! After reading the recommendations on this site I decided to book an appointment with Patrick, and was very happy! I used to call around and ask salons if they had someone who knew how to cut curly hair, but I quickly found out that they all lie! They usually claim to have a curly hair specialist who ends up being anyone that's available at the time of your appointment. Then they proceed to soak and cut your hair no differently than if it were straight. Patrick is definitely the real deal. I have never had a better hair cut! (And considering I was chopping off 10+ inches to donate to locks of love the first time, this is a considerable compliment.) Also, I've never had to take him up on this, but he offerred to make touch ups if I washed my hair the next day and found that something wasn't right. The hairuct is a little pricier than I'm used to paying but not at all unreasonable, and considering the quality I'd say it's definitely worth it. I'm currently residing in Switzerland, but I make sure to make an appointment with Patrick when I'm back in Connecticut.
