N♥tural Hair: Ends Trimmed... finally!

Last week I finally made my way into the Flo Hair Studio for an appointment with salon owner Chris McPherson. I was looking for a salon that didn't necessarily cater to natural hair, but a stylist that was well-versed in how to style curly hair. I found McPherson and his studio while searching the salon directory on NaturallyCurly.com, a great resource for those looking to find a salon and reviews in their area.

After a consultation which was originally intended to find out more information on the DevanChan Curly Girl Cut, we decided that trimming my hair the traditional dry/straight way was a better option for me. For those that are curious, the DevaChan cut is a curl by curl cut meant to emphasize shape and movement for those with curly hair. Since I don't wear my hair curly 100% of the time McPherson didn't recommend getting the cut done on my hair at this time.

Flo Hair Studio is a minimalist meets modern salon in the heart of Columbia's downtown corridor. They have a more natural approach opting to bypass chemical services like relaxers, perms and brazilian blowouts. The only chemicals they use are for color so if you're looking for anything else you want to look elsewhere. However, if you're on the hunt for a stylist that will take the time to learn your hair texture and treat your strands to his delicate touch, McPherson is the person for you!

It's always hectic trying to find a new stylist... especially for me because I was obsessed with Kim Allison @ Apricot Lounge in Scottsdale (I'll be heading back to her chair once I move lol), but McPherson was awesome to work with. He takes his time going through your hair and has a gentle touch. Many women shy away from salon trims because stylists can be scissor happy, but McPherson analyzed my ends with a fine tooth comb and took off 6 months of splits and knots.

If you're a woman with curly hair I would especially recommend him because he understands curls, but don't fret - - he can work his magic on any head of hair. Feel free to give his salon a call and set up a consultation. Speak with him about what results you're looking to get and see if he's a good fit for you!

Your hair looks great both curly and straight! I usually wear my hair in two strand twists with synthetic hair added in but I took them out a few days ago and have been playing around with other styles. I think I'm just restless in general. Once I took them out I realized why the style works so well for me... mostly because I like to spend very little time messing with my hair! (Because of being busy and the fact that my work already tires out my hands and arms...) Oh well...

Thanks! I think one of the most important things to learn is how much effort/time you want to invest on your hair and then find a style that suits you. I actually ended up leaving my hair in a bun for like a week lol... I didn't feel like being bothered with styling it. I'm a low maintenance type of gal.
