I have always had my hair long & took itty bitty baby steps to go short!!!! It took my best friend Sylvia to to recommend LUCY HWANG @ Vidal Sassoon... I immediately felt I could trust her... She MEASURES your hair!!! We 1st went above the shoulder.. ad a month later CHOP.. I was able to feel the breeze on my neck!!! It most definitely a change... and I can honestly say that I have never gotten so many compliments on my hair!!! I love my short hair & I am going back this Saturday ! It grew fast!!!!! If you are taking baby steps toward a short cut or if U currently wear it short, I highly recommend LUCY HWANG!!!!
