Need a stylist on Long Island!

I was going to someone for about a year and a half, and he was AMAZING. I barely needed to tell him what I wanted and he just read my mind and cut my hair perfectly every time. One haircut went awfully wrong and I gave him the benefit of the doubt and went back, and the 2nd haircut was worse than the first bad haircut. I was devastated!! So I thought I found someone else, and she gave me an even worse haircut. I have nowhere to go now! I just want someone who specifically cuts hair on Long Island. Anyone have someone?

    after many years of bad haircuts, including one horrible one from a 'deva inspired' stylist on long island, i just make my way into manhattan to see carlos flores at mario diab. you don't have to go often. he cuts my daughter's hair and she has long hair like yours in your photo, she goes in once every 6 months. i go in a little more often, maybe once every 4 months. we both feel it is well worth it and will not let anyone else touch our hair!
    i don't know where you live, but i have a friend who lives in rocky point on long island, and she makes the almost 2 hour trip in also!
    good luck!

    Hmm...I'm really not keen on traveling into the city for a haircut. And I'm sure it'll be sooooo incredibly expensive. Your friend is further east than I am (I'm in Hauppauge), so I'm sure it's a great salon! I'm really just looking for some place on the island. There has to be someone who can cut curly hair!!

    good luck and let us long island curlies know if you find one!! altho at this point she/he'd have to be beyond belief for me to leave carlos.
    fyi, he's downtown, it's easy to get to by car, the williamsburg bridge.
    also, i figure out how much haircuts cost me on an annual basis -- if i go to an expensive person 2x a year, versus someone cheaper every 6 months, it is usually the more expensive cut that is cheaper.
