I'd like to share my experience with Bianca, the stylist that cut my hair at Ruiz Aveda Salon - West End.
I grew up with naturally curly hair in the 70s and 80s. It wasn't cute. Ever. There were no products that we knew of in our small Texas town besides hairspray to help tame the frizzy beast on my head. I lived on the coast and the humidity made it worst. So I pretty much hated my hair growing up. Before straighteners were invented, my Mom would iron my hair on the ironing board with the clothing iron on special occasions.
I was referred to Bianca for a haircut because of her skills with curly hair. I feel like Bianca changed my life with the haircut she gave me, product suggestions and a demonstration on how to tame and style my curly hair. She told me exactly which four Aveda products to use in a sequence and how to provide enough moisture for my texture of hair. Now instead of fighting frizz every day and blowing it out straight, I can wear my natural hair and feel confident that it looks good and curly with NO FRIZZ!! Hallelujah!! Bianca has really simplified my daily routine big time.
Not only did Bianca suggest four Aveda products to use on my curly hair, she explained why they worked and it made sense. She was warm and friendly and made my total experience five star. At the end of our appointment, she said to give her a call if I had any questions about the application process of the products. I thought that was very sweet of her to make herself available to answer questions.
As for a review on the Aveda products, they make my hair look healthy and shiny. My curls are hydrated, defined and separated with no frizz at all. Using specific Aveda products in a sequence is the key. The bonus is the products smell so good and clean!
No matter the texture of your hair, Bianca will hook you up with a cut and style. She's talented, sweet and kind as well. All of the staff at Ruiz Salon - West End make you feel welcome. They're personable and friendly. I always enjoy my time there and look forward to each appointment!
