Anyone ever had a good curly cut in England?

I'm desparate to find a stylist who can give me an acceptable hair cut and liberate me from having to keep my hair permanently tied back. I recently travelled 50 miles from my home and paid £70 for a cut with an internationally renowned stylist. The only solution he could offer for my thick, shapeless, puffy, over-volumous, pyramid shape hair was a session with the thinning scissors! I'm a just past the shoulder 3B.

    It's a bit of a way from Oxford, but I'd highly recommend Donna at Stuart Philips, London, Covent Garden. She's not cheap, but is very sympathetic to curly hair and has never given me a bad cut in 4 years. She has lots of curly clients, so I don't think I'd be the only one to recommend her...

    Hi all,

    As keen as I am to find a good stylist - Oxford is a bit of a trek from the Midlands and the only suggestion on the site is Southampton!! Anyone know of anyone good in the midlands?

    I get so fed up of rubbish cuts or people having no idea of how to cut and the constant fight to avoid the blowdryer (the last salon I went to insisted it was policy and I had to have a blow dry :x )

    Thanks

    Hi KinkiRoots, did you ever find a good hairdressers in the midlands?

    Or anyone else?

    I'm desperate to get a decent curly haircut, so if anyone has any recommendations for the midlands I'd be v.grateful. Thanks!

    *agentcooper* I ended up going to an Aveda salon, where she was very nice about using CG friendly products, but my highlights were lots lighter than I'd asked for and she had no idea how to cut curly hair. But she did do a very small trim of the ends exactly as I asked.

    So I'm afraid the search is still on :(

    I too find it pretty much impossible to find a decent hairdresser. The last hairdressers I went to were so rude constently telling me my hair was "very dry and damaged" and "Do you ever brush your hair?" :cry: . It completly killed the already low self confidence I had about my hair.

    When I finally got the courage to go again a women spend nearly two hours combing and blow dryin my hair!! :roll: :twisted:

    I really would love to go to a haridressers where they understood that stariaght hair and curly hair IS NOT THE SAME!! :? :x

    Hi

    Im from the midlands (Wolverhampton). If your anywhere near there, I just went (well, about 3 weeks ago!) to peter hipkin in tettenhall. The cut was great and they were totally cool about me telling them not shampoo my hair and not to rub it dry. she spent ages finishing my hair so i could go outside and get home before it shot up in the air!

    There are a few curly friendly salons listed on the uk site curlyco.co.uk. The list seems to be growing slowly.

    Wow it looks like they do their own range of sulphate free 'poo as well!
    & natural condish & stylers, I wonder if they are cone-free?

    Have you tried any of their products Felina?

    @curly52: i think i paid about £45 for the cut last time. She cut it wet both times, i asked her about a dry cut but she said that the first time it should be cut wet as otherwise it's not going to be even (which didn't really make sense to me :roll: ) and then next time she could cut it dry if i wanted. to be honest, the second time i went i didn't even ask anymore as the first cut had turned out really well so i wasn't bothered about a dry cut...

    @Curly Alexa: i have only tried their leave in conditioner which has no cones but is too light for me, so i wasn't too impressed. but everything smells really nice and 'natural'.
