Once you go short you... get lazy and end up with long hair again

Help me find a new hairstylist who understands "low maintenance", in Ann Arbor, Denver, or Phoenix.

I used to have a fabulous hairstylist. She could cut my hair short in such a way that I didn't need to put any product in it, and it looked good. Also when I then neglected to cut it for months it looked good while growing out, too.
She has since gone on to other pursuits, and I don't live in Berkeley anymore anyhow, so it's time to find a new person.
I've tried a few times and the most common problem I have is that the person doesn't understand low maintenance. I will not be putting product in my hair on a daily basis. I just won't. There will be no hairdryer. A comb is unlikely; usually it's just fingers. I say this, but then the stylist says "oh this product is really easy!" No, no it isn't. There is no easy product or process.
What I will do is wash my hair at night, and run my fingers through it in the morning. And I'm willing to pay a fair amount for the haircut that lets me do this.
I know it's possible because I've had it before. Who can give me this haircut again? (I live in Ann Arbor, but I travel not infrequently to both Denver and Phoenix).
And on preview, yes I've read some previous "get me a hairstylist" questions, but the low maintenance is really key here. I'm female and Caucasian with thickish hair, in case that's relevant. Price is not a concern; I'd rather spend money on the haircut than on a silly set of products anyhow!
