Mar 12, 2011 - I had an appointment with Kateri a few weeks ago and it took me a while to get here to write a review. My family does not have curly hair, so there was never much belief that curly hair was so different from straight hair. As a result, I never really had an understanding of my hair, or had someone who cut my hair properly. I was getting tired of getting bad haircuts, so when it came time to get my hair cut again I looked at the reviews on this site. I saw all the good reviews for Kateri, and I was really happy that she knew curly hair (and had it herself). When she was cutting my hair, I was a little suspicious of how it would turn out because it was a dry cut and my hair looked huge. She knew what she was doing though, and afterwards it looked great. If you have curly hair, you need to go to Kateri. She fully explains what she is doing and can answer any of your questions (as well as tell some interesting (bad hair) stories when she was learning). She also introduced me to the Curly Hair Solutions, and I am so glad I went to Kateri. I've been recommending her to my friends that also have curly hair.
