For color I go to an aveda school, but they don't know how to style curly hair. In NYC, $95 is an average. I think cutting is more dangerous with an inexperienced person as you live with that for a while. Color is more of a universal thing among hair types than curly hair cut and style. It is worth it.
Hair type, thin, 3b, past my shoulders always looking for length. Use jessicurl hair cleansing cream, devacurl one c, angel, set it free, Always see a deva trained stylist for cut and Aveda Institute for color.
