    I sure am! :) My mother ended up going to this one:
    http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlsalons/view/1265
    and is totally delighted with Dawn and with the price she charges (I've forgotten what it was but it was definitely reasonable).

    But by all means, please post about your experience with W Salon! Always good for my mother to have a back-up....

    Good luck!

    I will let you know how it goes. And I'll keep Ani's in mind too. My husband used to live in that area and I must have driven by a million times!

    I don't know if your mom had this frustration, but I feel like I had to really search for a salon that would cut curly hair in RI... I almost went up to Fringe in Salem, MA or Cala Renee in Beverly, MA.

    My mom has been very frustrated with the hair stylists in the Rhode Island area for years. None of them seemed to have had a clue about cutting curly hair. Admittedly, she is not willing to pay more than $50 or so for a haircut, so she's probably not considered a lot of places who'd cut her hair the way she wants it done. But for years, she has been trying various places and never found one -- until Ani's. She's very pleased with her cuts there. Plus, it's about a quarter mile from her house!

    I share her frustrations. My husband's cousin introduced me to CG and Lorraine Massey's book a few years ago. I half heartedly tried to cowashing thing but cut out cones and sulfates but still lowpooed every day. My cousin in law got her hair cut by a woman who did a great job just doing a normal wash and cut wet thing, and it was fine for awhile, but recently the style got old. Since I'm now doing the "full fledged" CG routine, I definitely want a cut that shows off my curls.

    These other cuts cost me $55, which I'm willing to pay if I'm going to get a good cut. I have always been cheap with haircuts... my cousin's friend cut my hair for awhile for $15. You sometimes get what you pay for though. I think W Salon charges $60, but there's a 20% off coupon for new clients on citysearch which I'll be bringing :)

    So Ani's was probably under $50?

    Yes, I'm sure it was. I can confirm exactly what she paid and get back to you, though, if you are seriously considering going there.... Feel free to PM me.
