Mychal knows how to cut textured hair. Before seeking Mychal's services, several of my curly/wavy/kinky/coily friends gave me her card recommending her.

My former stylist was ok, but she wasn't skilled enough to give me a cut that wouldn't require silicones & heat tools to consistently achieve my desired look. I kept seeing her because she was nice, not because she was skilled, & then I had a traumatic haircut & couldn't bear to return again.

At our first appointment, Mychal handled my PTSD symptoms with professionalism, compassion & grace. She really listens & communicates thoroughly, & wouldn't start cutting until showing me the length she was removing & confirming I was comfortable with taking that much off. She was really mindful & sensitive of my PTSD & earnestly worked to earn my trust.

Mychal's the first stylist that was able to give me a truly full CG styling consult after the cut, showing me multiple looks to try with my new do. (I've never met a stylist that tried could do that without heat tools.) She really demonstrates all the versatility of my cut, & recommends styles that adhere to my low-maintenance /manipulation & kind-ingredients hair philosophy. & she shows me new looks that I never before thought I could pull off.

Mychal's skills & creativity are matched by her kindness & humor. I keep going to her because of her skills & creative eye, but getting my haircut is all the more exciting because Mychal is the type of personality one enjoys spending time with.

I am so grateful to have such a talented & reliable stylist, ever working toward me looking phenomenal & feeling awesome about myself.
