Jul 14, 2012 - This was the best experience ever in a hair salon! My daughter is 13 and a curly blonde. We have never been able to take care of the poor girl's hair. Lots of stylist have claimed to be able to cut curly hair but Kateri is the only one that actually did it! I was skeptical that it could be done and I was so amazed. Kateri spent about 2 hours talking to us, taking the knots out of my daughter's hair and telling us about the way she would cut it and why and what products to use. We have purchased lots of products supposedly made for curly hair and they have all been a waste of money. Kateri made no money selling us products as she didn't have any in her salon but instead told us where to buy them on-line. I think she charged us only $20 for all of this cutting, styling and education. I was looking for someone closer to my house in hopes of saving some time but there isn't anyone. We have to drive 52 minutes to get to Kateri and it is worth the drive. My daughters hair cut lasted about 9 month and we no longer have fights and tears.
