Elphie2983's Latest Salon Reviews

Live Curly Live Free the Salon - Gulfport, Florida, United States

Nov 16, 2009 - Sadly, it's taken me awhile to get this review here. I had my hair cut by the curl master (Tiffany) on 10/24, and it was a fabulous experience. A little bit about me: I live in NY, and went to visit my parents who live near Sarasota, and was able to schedule an appointment with Tiffany. I've been CG for almost 2 years now, and up until the point of my haircut, I was using shampoo bars + ACV rinse + giovanni smooth as silk conditioner. So, we had no problem finding her salon, and I got there, and walked in, and one of the other stylists saw me looking around and said "Don't worry, Tiffany is here", I was wondering how she knew then I realized I had curly hair, so that meant I was there to see Tiffany. Tiffany came out and then sat me down and asked what I wanted out of the haircut, what I liked about my hair, what I didn't, that sort of thing; it was really great. I had no qualms really about my hair, and yet she managed to make it better even still. She did the dry cut, asking me about my regimen, and I told her I was using soap bars, which she recommended that I not use anymore (and I stopped). The biggest thing for me that I got out of this haircut was when she told me my hair texture. I was almost positive I had fine texture, and I was loading on the protein, but it turns out, I have MEDIUM texture, and normal porosity. She had me lay off the protein, and since then, I've been using giovanni triple treat shampoo, and a protein free conditioner (suave or the giovanni 50:50, or the gvp conditioning balm) and my hair has been super happy. My hair had a shelf she said, where the layers kind of stopped. She stepped down my layers, and it's much more curlier overall, all around. I absolutely love it. She is so incredible, and knowledgeable. She answered all my questions and more, and taught me how to clip. I highly recommend her to anyone who has the opportunity to get a cut by her. Especially, if you want to learn more about your hair.
