Born Curly Hair Salon - Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Apr 18, 2013 - I went to Kim for the first time the other day (April 2013), based on the reviews I read on this site. All the positive reviews were 100% accurate - Kim is AMAZING! I have wavy/curly hair, and every stylist I've ever been to has said "just get layers...layers is what works with curly hair". Well, I always ended up with the same boring hairstyle, and could never figure out how to actually style it properly (unless I used a lot of styling product, which caused build-up in my hair and made it look stringy). I was pretty skeptical, even with all the positive reviews (who knows how legit they really are, right?); but,I saw a great promotion on the Born With It website, and thought "it can't hurt to try, especially for the price". Well, let me tell you - it was a fantastic experience! I used the promotion to try Kim out, and she's now got a forever client. She was amazing - she cut my hair dry (which I've read on curly girl sites is how it's supposed to be done). Then she washed it and styled it for me, but told me step by step what I needed to do to achieve beautiful curls/waves. Before, I used a TON of gel (2 different types) in my hair, diffused it, and then used another product to 'scrunch out the crunch'. With Kim, I now use a little bit of conditioner as a leave in treatment, and then the smallest amount of gel ever. I was skeptical about this small amount of gel - how would it tame the frizz? But it did!! And there was no crunch. Kim answered any question I had about how to style my hair, and offered great suggestions on how to get more volume (I have thin, fine hair). It was really nice to finally have someone explain what was going on with my curly hair and why I needed to do certain steps in my styling process (rather than just saying "scrunch your hair", she would explain how to do it, why she was doing it, how often I should wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner vs. just conditioner, etc.). Honestly, Kim is awesome. She's nice, she explains everything she does, and she doesn't charge an arm and a leg for her services. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
