HAIR STYLISTS in the Northern VA/DC/Southern MD area

krwebb18krwebb18 Posts: 15Registered Users
Hi Everyone! I have been transitioning since June 2010. My hair is in a short bob (rhianna) with the back completely natural. Mid crown and the top of my hair is still transitioning. I wear protective hairstyles at the moment.

I am looking for a GREAT hairstylist in the Northern VA, DC, or Southern MD area that is excellent when it comes to caring for natural hair (whether I wear it in its natural state or straightened).

SN: I have 3c, 4a hair.

If anyone knows of any great hairstylists, please feel free to drop a note on here.

Thanks!

    I also live in Southern MD and had to go to Columbia for my haircut. I went to see Amanda at Cavallaro & co, located in the Columbia Town Center. I would highly recommend her as she gave me an awesome bob! It was $70ish and her number is 410 730 7229.

    I wanted to find someone in NOVA too, but the wait was too long. I think Amanda will be out of town for a week or two in June, so you may want to book now. She had a cancellation so I went next day!
    *Shampoo - Tresemme Naturals (low sulfate) once every week or two.
    *Conditioner - DEVA One (used for co-wash too). Yes To Carrots conditioner.
    *Leave in - Garnier Fructis Clean styling cream & gel (DEVA gels are hit or miss depending on the weather. ULTA medium hold gel is also silicone free).
    *Other likes - DEVA moisture lock spray, Ducks Clips (spray with gel first), diffuse 30 - 40%.

    Update:

    I went to Amanda at Cavallaro & Co on Friday and was definitely happy with my experience.

    She really knows her stuff and did a great job listening to me and explaining exactly what she was going to do before she did it.

    I will definitely be back.
