Feb 24, 2011 - I just had my first appointment with Valdeh. I can tell you that all of the reviews of him hold true! He's incredible. I got my first haircut for my naturally curly hair instead of a cut for straightening it. It's beautiful! And it's so easy to do. He showed me so many different styling techniques and while he showed me the products he used and why, he didn't push them on me - there was absolutely no pressure to buy (which I did, anyway!). My hair looks awesome. It's so rock n roll and that's what I've always wanted and definitely fits my personality. He guarantees his cuts to come back for fixes or whatever for two weeks after, which I doubt I'll need to do at all. He asked me to call or text him whether or not I like my bangs after a while of having them. I mean, he really cares that I'm satisfied with my cut! He didn't just say "call me if you have any problems..." like they all say. He meant it. Not only is he excellent at cutting curly hair, he's incredibly nice! He was a joy to be around. I'm very shy and have a hard time holding conversation with hairdressers, especially when they're too busy chatting with another stylist instead of paying attention to me. I felt so comfortable with him from the get-go. He's very complimentary and very genuine. I'll be going to Valdeh for a long, long, long time and I couldn't recommend him more!
