Pittsburgh curlies!

Hi! So in about three weeks I'm going to be packing up my things and traveling cross-country to start school at University of Pittsburgh. Along with my family, my puppies, and other things I am going to be leaving behind a hair stylist that I've been going to for about three years. I don't often get my hair cut, but when I do I would love to hear about a place (preferably near the campus) that is great with curly hair. And also, eyebrow waxing because otherwise my eyebrows and lip will look like Frida Kahlo's and I can't rock it like her.

Thanks! (:

Hyde: I don't have a guy. This righteous moss is a gift from God.

    Omg!!! I'm going to Pitt too! You're going to be a freshman there?! This is awesome! :) I have two awesome salon suggestions -- one would be Kelly Elaine Inc. She specifically specializes in curly hair and is Deva certified, I love her haircuts. But she's very expensive so I can only afford to go there once or twice a year. For the rest of my trims I go to Salon 980 in Canonsburg, which is owned by this super nice woman named Marcy. She'll do literally whatever you ask -- I have her cut my hair dry and everything, and she does a GREAT job. She's much cheaper -- haircuts are only $18 there.
    whurly girly (2C/3A).
    thick; medium/coarse; low porosity.
    hair that is drier than the sahara desert.

    LOW-POO: Renpure Organics
    CO: L'Oreal EverCreme Cleansing Conditioner
    RO: Renpure Keratin Conditioner. New HG!
    LI: L'Oreal EverSleek Humidity-Defying LI Creme
    Styling: SM Curl Milk, Argan Oil for sealing, sometimes GFPC Gel, some honey for hold, TIGI Control Freak Serum!!

    Eddy at Salon Cercone in Shadyside is fantastic. You can look up reviews here.

    For my brows, I go to Grace at Studio Booth in East Liberty right next to the Trader Joe's.

    Med/Coarse, porous curly.

    Well, I'm very pleased with my DevaCut with Kelly Elaine. She seems to know what she's doing, so if you can afford it then I'd definitely suggest her!
