Men's long curly hair - stylist recommendations for Orlando?
August 30, 2011 1:50 PM   Subscribe

Looking for a hairdresser in Orlando that works well with long curly men's hair.

The title pretty much says it all. Not looking for tips, just want a stylist who knows what they're doing.

I've been growing my hair out for about three years, and have only cut it once during that time. I'm pretty much illiterate when it comes to styles, but mainly want to give it a little more shape, trim the ends, and anything else that might make it look a little neater or make it easier to maintain.

Including the following in case it's relevant:

I'm caucasian and my hair is dyed with Ion brand "darkest brown". As is often recommended for curly hair, I rarely wash but use lots of conditioner including a leave-in product. My hair tends to be very fine and gets very frizzy. I can't get through it with a comb or brush unless it's soaking wet and covered in conditioner.

Check out the Salon Finder on The salons in your area that get the most kudos are Janelle on Location (in Orlando proper) and Lunatic Fringe (in Altamonte Springs).

IANAD (I am not a dude), but I found an excellent stylist for my very curly, very fine, dry, frizzy hair via this website -- and her following is pretty evenly divided by gender.

My stylist offered a free consultation before I set up my first cut with her, so she could get a look at my hair and discuss whether my goals for it were workable. You might want to see if you could do something similar. I know it's always a leap for me when I go to a new salon -- "Is this going to look good, or will I wind up looking like Roseanne Roseannadanna?"

P.S. Clarification: Apparently Janelle on Location is a traveling stylist -- she is based in Orlando but will come to wherever you are.
