Do you notice a difference between male and female stylists? I have had 2 male stylists and they were the best I've ever had. Very gentle, took great care of my hair. One of them even told me that the flat iron was not made for our hair. It destroys it. I had never heard that before but it makes sense. I don't know what he uses, but his roller-sets looked better than a flat-iron. Them white folks were eating it up as I walked out of that salon. This is a picture of my hair a week after Anthony did it. Ignore the face; I posed like that on purpose. I'd go back to him, especially because his salon was so beautiful and upscale. He was just one of two black stylists in a "white" salon and I got annoyed by them staring at my head when they saw him relaxing it. Besides, $80 was too much for a relaxer. erplexed Do you prefer male or female stylists?
