kaelin@graffiti.net's Latest Salon Reviews

Unruly Studio - London, Greater London, United States

Dec 03, 2011 - I just wanted to mention that this salon has closed. I had Claudio cut my 3C/4A hair about 2 years ago, I would recommend finding him if he's still in London.

Ricciolo Salon - La Verne, California, United States
Lora Johnson

Dec 03, 2011 - I just got back from my appointment with Lora and want to add my two cents. I chose to go to Lora instead of a Devachan or Ouidad salon in LA not only due to the price but also based on the reviews. My hair type is 3C/4A, and shoulder length, and everyone always wants to straighten my hair or offer a relaxer (NO THANKS!) so I was pleasantly surprised by Lora's "philosophy." We both love big hair, natural texture, and really saw eye-to-eye as far as expectations of my final look. My consultation consisted of her analyzing my face shape and the shape of my hair. She gently brushed out my curls and really saw the perimeter shape, and when she started cutting, she gave my hair a flattering shape for my face and personality. She essentially shaped my afro, almost like a barber would do for a man, but did so in such a classy, knowledgeable manner for this 30-year-old single girl. Another reviewer commented that even though Lora is White, as a Black customer one can be skeptical. I have to say that Lora knows Black hair (and other hair types, I'm sure) and I will definitely be visiting her again, but not for another 6 months-1 year as this haircut was great and will allow my hair to grow nicely. The only thing that I didn't like was how she styled it, but I think an actual style might have cost extra. She put some product in and tousled it around, but the texture and health of my hair are very noticeable. Highly recommended!
