May 03, 2008 - A few months back I felt I needed to get a trim. My long curly hair was loosing its novelty. I had read the reveiws about Mona every time I logged on to the naturally curly website, so I thought I'd give the salon a try. I made an appointment on-line and before leaving for the appointment I had my husband and son snap s few pics of my hair at its longest length. Mona was gracious and polite. Our conversation resulted in a complete style change! I had been reluctant to have anything more than a trim for over 5 years, and I am now a permanent client of Mona's. At my 4 week 'check up' Mona was able to take notice of how I was maintaining the style, what rate my hair was growing and whether I was satisfied with my haircut. I am so happy with my hairstyle! I am no longer hiding behind my hair! Mona has given my hair its own unique, classic look, one that is mine alone. The style is so easy to maintain. I actually feel beautiful for the first time in my life, without having to do this or that to my hair! My husband was shocked to see my hair gone, but loves the new me. He continues to comment on my look, and has noticed a new pattern of postive changes in my life. I had my son take some after pics so we could compare them to the before pics. What a difference a cut makes. Sure I can have a head full of long 's' locks like so many others, but now I am 'free' from the tireless hours of trying this or that product to get rid of the frizz or which kind of clip will hold all that hair without breaking and pass for looking just ok. Besides, my old hair was donated to Locks of Love which helped make the switch a bit easier. Mona is an expert, a master hairdresser, an artist. Her confidence and gentle techniques reach far beyond the golden standard for excellence in her field. I have already returned for an update (trim) and look forward to my next appointment! Thanks Mona!
