CurlyBoi's Latest Salon Reviews

Madusalon - San Francisco, California, United States

Dec 10, 2009 - I've been managing my 3a/3b curls myself using mainly barbers and such who don't give a flip about curl care. After going in a new direction for the last year, I decided to treat myself and schedule a gig with a professional. I called Mesusalon. I didn't ask for a particular sylist, but explained that I was a curly and needed someone with experience to style my mop. I ended up with Carolina. I explained to her what problems I was having, where I was going, and asked a ton of questions about curl care and styling. She flashed the "Curly Girl" (Massey & Chiel), and said it was their bible around the shop. She was perky and fun, and we had very pleasant small talk. She took her time to shape my do, explaining what she was doing the whole time. I found her very down to earth and energetic, and the overall vibe of the salon was also good. When I asked about products, she answered my questions, but didn't push, which I appreciated. I came out with lots of new ideas and info to boot! A big ol' SNAP to Carolina & Medusalon!

Floyd's Barbershop - Santa Monica, California, United States

May 22, 2008 - Went to Spindel on the rec of the previous reviewer. It's very 'hip barbershop' vibey. Spindel was a doll--very sweet, a little quiet type, but I have "a way with the boys", and after a bit he was chatty. While very personable, he stopped the conversation several times to ask, "how are things looking so far" and, "are you OK with the way I'm cutting." Because it was my first cut with him, he was very cautious, which I appreciate. He displayed knowledge of the "trickiness" of cutting curly locks. Even though the shop exudes testosterone, I think he would be very sensitive to a woman's needs as well. Because my hair FREAKS out for several day after a cut, he gave me a good cut. He also "isn't into pushing product," which I also appreciate. Thanks, Spindle!
