I moved to Austin in March 2011 and ventured to a salon in April (which shall remain unnamed, but it's located on South Congress and is very flashy, and is next to a yogurt shop). After they butchered my hair (literally, the bangs were so thick and messed up I looked like I had a glorified mullet!), I searched around for a new hairstylist and asked friends for recommendations.
Why I didn't do that in the first place is beyond me - I could've gone straight to Shanna and avoided the mullet!
She quickly went to work fixing the old cut, and giving my locks a new life. In the process she mentioned to me that while I thought my hair was wavy, it was actually curly - and showed me ways I could work the natural curl to have multiple hairstyles: straight (with a flat iron), wavy with a dryer, curly with a defuser, etc.
The cut she gave me not only brings out my natural curl, it looks AMAZING when straightened.
Highly recommend Shanna to anyone looking for an honest and great stylist.
