I did that last year. I think Ouidad's method of Carve and Slice works much better on curlier types (I'm wavy). It was a middling haircut and the job they did styling was poor. They should have used harder hold styling products on me.

But all in all, the experience was GREAT. It's a cool salon in a nice area. They gave me a wonderful deep treatment that left my hair very soft. I recommend you do it if you can. Just be aware that they are training stylists on your hair so be specific with what you want.
Sort of CG sometimes, but not really
2B, medium? normal porosity and elasticity?
