Mar 08, 2011 - I admit it...I cheated on Mona. Five months ago I tried a Ouidad-certified stylist nearby. I had heard so much about the "slicing and carving" method, and I decided to try it (O.K., and I had a coupon). I left the Ouidad salon with awesome looking curls...like something out of a magazine! BUT it took so much effort..."shaking and raking," blow drying upside down, wringing. AND...here comes another "but"...my hair became entangled so easily. I'd wake up looking like I did in elementary school before anyone knew what to do with my hair. I was literally pulling my hair out every time I had to wash and comb/brush through it. So, I humbly slinked back to Mona and begged her to help me get my hair back to something manageable. She is the only person in my adult life that has been able to give me a cut that is easy to style, lasts a good long while, and doesn't require a ton of products...honestly, just Hold On gel. Turns out that Ouidad "slicing and carving" created so many different layers in my hair that it was just a tangled mess after one day. With Mona's cut, I shampoo and condition every other day, put in some gel, and I'm out the door quickly without crazy styling techniques. My hair looks great. Thanks, Mona!!
