They say the key to curly hair is having a good haircut. I have never had a good curly hair cut in my life. I have 3c-4a hair, a lot of it (big and frizzy!), and I have Japanese straightened it for the past 8-9 years. I finally decided to grow out my curls and found Olga from all the great reviews out there. She was AMAZING and completely understood my goals with my hair. Our initial consultation she did not recommend the BIG CHOP because I had not grown out enough hair. Several months later, I returned and she cut the remains of the straight hair. She cut a lot of layers and de-volumized, actually taught me about my hair, taught me how to care for it and style it. Bonus: She is also very kind and friendly and a great listener. I completely and highly recommend her!!! Thanks Olga!
