Mar 12, 2010 - I had my first haircut today with Alberto, and I totally love it! My hair is coarse, very dense and in the 3b/c range. For some reason, my hair always looks its worse when I go in for a cut, but Alberto was still able to work with it. I asked him not to shampoo, so he conditioned only. Normally, I would have asked for my hair to be cut dry, but since it looked so dehydrated and frizzy when I walked in, I knew the conditioner would help. He did comb it to cut it, but my hair turned out to be the length that I asked for. Alberto is a natural curly himself, probably in the 3a range with a medium texture. He was friendly and helpful. I didn't like the style that I left with, it was too big for my taste, however, he did offer some useful styling tips, which I have used successfully. Anyone with thick, coarse (strands)or extremely curly (3b-4a)hair should go and see Alberto. And everyone at the salon was nice, and no one gawked at me, although my hair was a huge fro and then a curly afro (think Barbara Streisand) at certain points. It definetly is a welcoming salon, no matter the hair type or texture.
