Since I found this site I was looking for someone who could cut my curly 3C hair that was reasonably close to where I live. I looked at the salons in my area and wasn't sure which of the 6 listed I should choose. Then I read about Kateri (owner) of Cortexx Salon in Grand Rapids, MI. The review stated that Kateri herself has wild and crazy curly hair and was an expert in the care, color and maintenance of curls. That basically SEALED the deal for me! I had called another salon about their curly "expert" but when I asked if she was curly herself they told me no. Ok, so if I want someone who I know, KNOWS curls, for me it's gonna be someone who is walking in my shoes. I called Cortexx and spoke to Kateri and she was soooo helpful and kind and so knowledgeable about curly hair (seriously girls, she was talkin' the curly talk that I've learned on this site!) and to top it all off, she cuts curls dry. I went in this week and couldn't be more happy :). I walked in and Kateri has my very 3c'ish hair more than half way down her back~she and her hair are gorgeous!! It was so strange for me to walk into a place and see someone with MY hair. She took loads of time talking with me and answering all my questions. I also got a trim and a color retouch, both which are FAB!! I will definately be going back there and I would highly recommend Kateri and her salon to anyone willing to make the drive to West Michigan!!!
