Two stylists and two barbers comprise Cutz & Styles' staff. Kristin, an Aveda master stylist, begins each appointment by evaluating the client's current hairdo and eliciting feedback on his or her end goal. "I pride myself on communication and consultations with my clients," she says. "Each client receives my utmost attention to detail and quality of service."
That explains why, during each shampooing, Kristin not only washes hair but also massages the scalp in fluid, circular motions that spell relax in cursive. Afterward, she often adds a coloring or conditioning treatment such as Japanese straightening. "Most people would compare it to the keratin treatment or Brazilian blowout," she said, "but this is a permanent treatment for people who don't want any curl left."
These services—as well as mani-pedis and facials—take place in the salon area, which resides adjacent to a barbershop.
