Went to a new stylist yesterday.
Yes I did. There was nothing wrong with my previous stylist - I just felt I could find a better one, and in a salon where I got pampered. My new stylist is young, took an hour with me but here is what she did: she did some snipping on my dry hair; then she used MY products to shampoo and condition (she was totally OK with that); diffused it dry. Then we looked at it; and I said to her (after looking at the back) "Some people have kind of a U shape in the back". She agreed, and we discussed. She decided that some additional trimming was in order, so she trimmed the back into a U shape that is really nice. I got, along with the haircut, a scalp massage; and, while MY conditioner was sitting on my hair, I got a lovely hand massage. $37 + tip. I am very satisfied and made another appt. I have not had my hair cut wet in a LONG time, and I think it looks fine. I seem to have more tight spirals now but my hair goes through stages....
