Aug 22, 2010 - I just had my first appointment with Carmen. I was greeted when I pulled up by the owner, Renay yelling "Welcome curly girl". I knew I was in the right place! LOL! Carmen took her time and talked with me about my hair, pros and cons, issues I have etc. She TOOK HER TIME!!! I wasn't rushed or intimidated. She explained the "no poo" way of life (which I am trying out) and gave her recommendations (without being pushy). She was very nice and LISTENED!!! She showed me a bunch of different tricks to style my hair. All together she spent an hour with me. I also had my daughter with me and she was SO sweet to her. Made her tea, played with sea shells with her. She is a cut above the rest (excuse the pun). It was hard to tell how great my cut was right away because it was beyond humid yesterday. But today after I washed and styled it (with her tips) it looks great and I am very please. It's a little shorter than I originally wanted, but the shape is so great that I really like it. THANKS CARMEN!
