My stylist is Gigi and she is the absolute best!!! I first met Gigi when she worked at the Hair Cuttery in Skokie. Once I found out she relocated I had to find out where she went because I was not about to let her go; she does way too good of a job for me to just let her go. Do you know how hard it is to find a stylist you trust?!?! I also, hate to go here but I honestly think I have to say this in order to help some people that are looking for a real good stylist, that may overlook Hair Cuttery's in general: I'm Eritrean and she knows exactly how to work with my hair type. When you enter most Hair Cuttery salons (I've been to 3) you do not see a lot of diverse stylist, which may cause some folks of color to go elsewhere to get their hair done (for good reason); but being that I'm one of you I can assure you that Gigi has blow dryed, pressed, and trimmed my hair several times and she does an amazing job! She tells you how much she is going to take off before doing so, and only cuts off what needs to be cut off (hello!). If you're like me and like a lot of body in your hair she'll make sure to blow dry and flat iron your hair so it has volume. Her diverse salon education and experience has allowed her to master so many different hair types. Gigi also has the coolest personality, you can talk to her about anything, she makes you feel super comfortable and like your her friend. Trust me give her a shot and you won't regret it!!! P.S. She's also a naturally curly headed girl...so she gets it!!!
