Stylist: Michael Matty
Here's a great stylist: Michael Matty at the Haircuttery at Clark and Gregory in Andersonville. I was in the midst of a hair emergency: I have fine, curly hair that goes ash blond/brown in the winter. I had gone to a beauty school and allowed them to do a full head of highlights which went ruinously wrong! My curly hair looked frizzy, fried, and awful, and the highlights made me look like Lemony Snicket. Michael did a thorough consultation then spent three hours gently toning, weaving, and coaxing my hair back from disaster. He gave me a beautiful, deep, slightly coppery blond with a few expertly placed light highlights. My hair is in good condition and looks beautiful, and Michael's demeanor was friendly, intelligent and relaxed throughout my visit. People kept coming in for walk-ins and they all asked for him by name - he has to turn people away. And he can cut curly hair, too. Don't be put off by the fact that he's in a Haircuttery - he's worked at Asha, too, and he's just great!
