Wild At Heart - Portland, Oregon, United States

May 30, 2016 -

I've been going to Wild at Heart salon for a year and a half and Mychal is the best stylist I've ever had for my coily, curly (3B) hair. 

Her cuts are superb! She works magic with her shears and my curls always look fantastic. She has a great way of gleaning what I want and executing the perfect cut.

Mychal's got an amazing talent for color as well! From blue to violet and now the creamiest blonde ombre you've ever seen she keeps me looking fresh. I get so many compliments on my hair! 

Not only does she use curly girl products but she is also well versed in the CG method. I learn a new styling tip each time I see her and as the other reviewer mentioned she's introduced me to new looks I never would have thought I could pull off.

Mychal's talented, warm, dependable and smart. If you're lucky like me and live around or are visiting Portland, do yourself the best favor and make an appointment with her.

Aimee Zimmerman

Nov 19, 2013 - Aimee has been my stylist for 3 years. I have 3B/C hair and I went to see her after my big chop. She not only re-shaped my short hair into something attractive instead of a hair halo, she educated me and has helped me during my grow out. She always listens and provides the pros and cons of decisions and guidance as to what will give the same effect but be best for my hair. I've had many stylists over a few decades but I've never one this great. She is an artist! I'm not a gal that likes to fuss with my hair a lot or spend more than 10 minutes styling. Her cuts always bring out my best curl and her coloring and highlighting technique is flawless. I'm still growing out so I see her twice a year. I wanted a low maintenance color/highlight for my greys. She guided me towards balayage. My hair looks like it was naturally sun bleached and I don't have a harsh root line that needs constant retouching. I'll never go to another stylist!

Wack Salon - Portland, Oregon, United States

Sep 08, 2010 - Go see Aimee now!! Don't wait, call now! I've lived in Portland for 3 years and have struggled with finding a great curly stylist. I even went the route of trimming my own hair for a while after too many bad cuts. I used the reviews on this site to narrow down 2 stylists....Aimee and another one from Dezi Salon. I went to see the Dezi Salon stylist first and he did an ok job. I didn't hate my cut but didn't love it. A few months later I tried Aimee. OMG!!! She is a master at cutting/styling curly hair. Not only did she give me one of the best cuts of my life (and I've been to a Ouidad salon) but she understood my hair, acknowledged and was familiar with the 'no poo' method. She also gave me a styling tip that saves me so much time and gives me curls that look like I individually finger-styled each one! She said her goal was to 'unleash my barrels of curls' and boy did she. I went from semi-frizzy, overweighted curls to bouncy, shiny, beatiful ringlets. I saw her almost a month ago now so I can honestly say that she cut it in such a way that I could style myself easily and almost every day someone stops me to compliment my curls. Do yourself a favor and go see her! I have 3B/3C curls and REALLY thick hair. (btw...she used to work at Dirty Little Secret so check out her reviews under that salon name)
