love notes from clients
(thank you, i love you!)
"Caitlin is a curl magician! I've had a stylist for years that I love, but she cuts my hair for a blowout, which just isn't practical for my day to day. Caitlin has given me two great cuts that highlight rather than hide my curls and taught me how to rock them! My hair has seriously never looked better. She walked me through the process of styling my curly hair, with variations for mornings where I am short on time to the full routine for when I can carve out a few more minutes. She is always kind, knowledgeable, and just a joy to be around. There's a light about her that can't be put into words: I don't think that any review can do her justice. I can't wait to see her next time she's in town!"
“I literally can’t say enough good things about my experience with Caitlin cutting my hair. She listened to and understood all my concerns, was extremely patient and kind about the existential crisis my hair and I are undergoing right now, and gave me the best cut and style of my life- I was literally in tears at the end because I could not believe it was possible for my hair to look as good as it did. She explained everything she was doing as many times as I needed to understand it and gave me excellent advice about how to style my hair at home. The only reason I’m mildly annoyed is because I can no longer imagine going anywhere else to have my hair cut, and this doesn’t come cheap! But it’s so, so worth it."

“Caitlin is a wizard and has been cutting my hair for years. I have a thick mop of wavy hair which, amazingly, does not intimidate her. I like to encourage my curl. She carves into it with layers so I never look like a large triangle, but I can still manage my hair and shepherd it into a ponytail if need be. I am always getting complements on it. She is open to feedback and has a relaxing, wonderful, approachable attitude. She takes her time and gets it right, double-checking her work from every angle. She is never rushed. She is up for conversation if you want, but respects when I need to get some work done or want to read. She truly understands all kinds of curly hair and has oodles of training on the subject. This is what she does, and cutting and styling curls is Caitlin's Olympic sport.”
"Caitlin was attentive, focused, professional and completely endearing. I was delighted with the whole experience and walked out of the salon with a permagrin. She educated me on how to style my hair at home and made it so approachable. I came out of state to see her and it was worth it. So happy with my cut! Also, learned she makes jewelry and realized she's a natural at creating stunning works of art, with both gemstones and hair as her canvas."
"I spent 28 years overwhelmed by my fine, curly hair, and I had kind of resigned myself to it doing whatever it wanted while still being frizzy and kind of a hot mess- until I met Caitlin. I started going to see her at Ouidad in Fort Lauderdale based on the strength of the reviews I read on Yelp, and she has proven to be an absolute godsend/wizard/goddess/miracle worker when it comes to my hair. I actually cried the first time she finished- that's how surprised I was that my hair could look defined, soft, manageable, and then some. I live and work 7000 miles away from the US and I time my trips home so I can get in to see her. She is beyond fantastic and worth however many hours it takes to drive to see her."
“Not until I had Caitlin do a cut, did I really feel like I was getting not only a cut, but an education on how to style it once I got home. My curls are very happy and I will continue to go to Caitlin to keep them happy. I’m extremely happy and can’t wait to go back for my next cut!”
“I've been getting my hair cut with Caitlin for years now and she is the ONLY person I will let near my locks! I cannot speak highly enough about her and how good she is at what she does! She is friendly and will patiently answer all of your hair questions, I had about a zillion my first appointment. She not only gave me the best hair cut I have ever received but showed me that curly hair is not a curse quite the opposite. I could go door to door and become a Caitlin witness. I loveeee my hair, it's easy to manage, healthy and it has a lot to do with Caitlin! So thank you thank you thank you Caitlin!

"Life’s short, people - embrace your curls and go to Caitlin! I love her. She really ‘gets’ me and my obsession with my hair, and her cuts are just remarkable. I get compliments everywhere I go. Caitlin is extremely professional and passionate about what she does. Caitlin’s my girl - she’s incredible and in my opinion is one of the best stylists around.”
"Look no further for awesome curly care TLC from Caitlin, she is fantastic! I had a great curly care experience with Caitlin / Curl Expert/ Stylist, who revived my curls and provided outstanding educational suggestions for curly care. Thank you very much Caitlin for your professionalism and expert curl care."
"I have struggled with my curly hair my entire life and I cannot rave enough about the cut that Caitlin gave me. She cut both me and my sister's hair and we were both so amazed with her talent! She was extremely professional, easy to talk to, explained the products and technique very well, and most importantly, she gave me an incredible cut. This technique really works! My hair has a beautiful shape and the curls really do fall into amazing interlocking ringlets! Sooo happy with this cut and would recommend Caitlin to EVERYONE with curly hair. She is a true expert and really understands how to work with curly hair. And I have been able to recreate the look on my own with the products at home--another miracle!

“I got my first haircut by Caitlin a couple years ago and I have returned without hesitation for every cut since. Because of her confidence, kind heart, and impeccable style, I will always be back! Every visit is enjoyable and thorough, always leaving with a smile and beautifully styled hair. Thank you Caitlin for changing my world!”
“As a curl girl, I know who can truly manage an incredible cut whether I wear it straight or curly has to be a consummate, skilled artist. I don’t mind spending extra on a great haircut that grows out beautifully. That’s what I had prior so I was concerned on who was up to the job. I did my research and ended up with Caitlin. She’s the real deal. Love her energy and my hair is looking fab!! Caitlin is a precious gem. She is a true hair artist, embraces us curl girls and is a pleasure to get to know.”
"The experience is amazing. Caitlin is a legitimate wizard who used sorcery (and her incredible talent) to shape my deeply problematic, fine classic curls into something beautiful; plus, she was beyond patient in explaining how to style my hair. I've tried for months since the first time I saw her to recreate her artwork and it didn't work, but she went slowly and I got to write everything down. She is beyond fantastic. I would follow Caitlin to the ends of the earth because no one else is ever going to touch my hair."
"Go see Caitlin! 300 Characters can not even begin to cover how she has literally changed my life. She taught me how to love and care for my curls so that I no longer have to cross my fingers and hope for a good hair day. She is brilliant and patient and the best thing you could ever do for your curls!"
"As a curly haired girl, most of us have struggled our whole lives to find a stylist that knows how to handle our hair. Plenty of stylist have confidently stated they know how to cut curly hair. After many Rod Stewart type shags and awful layers, I quickly learned that curly hair is not easy to cut and most stylists are not educated to do so. I found Caitlin about 10 years ago and have not trusted anyone else with my hair since. She specializes in curls. What a relief it is to not walk into a salon anxious. I know I will always walk out with beautiful bouncy curls.
It also helps that she's adorable, delivers great customer service, and has a great energy about her that can make anyone feel comfortable in her chair.
I highly recommend Caitlin! She's the best"
“Caitlin was VERY professional and did a great job. She gave me exactly what I asked for. My hair looks great and I can tell it will grow in even better. I received several compliments just on my way home! Caitlin was very patient and explained how to style my hair and even took time to write it down for me! I’ll definitely be back!!!”
"I had spent months reviewing curly stylists and I finally decided to move forward and try Caitlin. I chose her based on her reviews and I will say I made the best decision. She was easy to understand, very informative and personable. Caitlin took the time to show me step by step, the best way to style my hair, showing me several different tips and techniques. Thank you, Caitlin. You have restored my faith in trusting a hairdresser."

“I have known Caitlin for many years. She made me love my curly hair after 35 years of not knowing what to do with it. Not only is she an incredibly talented artist, she is a sweet gentle soul. If you don't know what to do with your hair, are sick of straightening it all the time, or just want to know how good you can look with curly hair, trust me - go see her.”
“Caitlin is the best! For curly hair she's an artist. She really pays attention to detail and has a great sense of what style suits you.

“Caitlin is an amazing curl expert! We took my daughter for her first haircut @12 years old :) She brought her curly hair back to life and provided her with tips on easily daily maintenance. Thank you Caitlin for your patience and expertise, looking forward to see you again soon!”

“Caitlin makes me feel like a model! She is a curl expert and knew exactly how to cut and shape my curls. She is personable and professional, knowledgeable and has the hands of a goddess! I drove 45min to see her and she was worth every penny! I was seen right away and he whole experience was luxurious. She consulted with me on what I wanted and the health of my hair and then went to cutting it. Months later, my hair still looks great and I won't trust anyone else! Forever a fan!”
