Hers By Chantell
Chantell is my hair goddess! She has the hair I want! She gives me the haircut I always desperately need! I've been searching for a naturally curly stylist (that can also straighten my hair) since I moved to California, with very little luck. I have a variety of hair types in my hair: 3b/3c/4a/4b; low porosity; medium & high density; bsl. As a result, I either waited to get my hair cut on the East Coast or I paid a fortune for a devacut done in LA. Devacut trained stylist never styled my hair well. In addition, devacurl products dry my hair out, which forced me to go home and redo my hair afterwards. Do you know how much it sucks to shell out that much money and not look like a million bucks?!?! It is a serious debbie downer!! So, I avoided haircuts and just conducted "search and destroy" split ends myself for the last few years. This has left me with healthy hair but no sexy styling that all my friends have:( So I reached out to Chantell to see when she would be on the West Coast to save my poor hair. My cousin referred me to Chantell years ago while I was in NY. She has fine 2a/2b and gets her hair cut by Chantell. I loved her style, so I made an appointment. I haven't forgotten that first cut!! I was in love!! Chantell specializes in naturally curly hair, wigs, cuts, color and everything else in between. She works with ANY hair texture!!!! ANY!!! She advises you on how to care for your hair, which helped me salvage the front area of my hair which was heat damaged. It turns out Chantell just started working in LA as well as NY. YAY!!!!! I immediately booked her for a cut. I was in and out in 30 minutes. No waiting for the next client, no overbooking, smooth sailing!! She has her own private room on the Paramount lot, so you don't have to be bothered with other clients. You can also check out the Paramount lot while you are there. I immediately left her chair and wasn't ashamed to go in public afterwards because I looked hot to trot! In fact, I spent the entire day outside showing off my hair!! She is the best hairstylist I have ever had!! That says alot because I have tried everyone!! As of now, she is only in LA 1-2 weekends per month. So book in advance! You won't regret it!!!
