    I was in California for vacation & made time to spend my Saturday morning with Mark! We had a wonderful time together & my hair looks & feels like NEW. My curls are bouncy, not FIZZY and look AMAZING! HUGE HUGS from Texas via California!

    I visited Mark early last year and he did a phenomenal job! I haven’t been able to return, but I am in need of a cut and I can’t wait to book my next appointment.

    I set up an appointment with Mark last week and it was one of the best decisions ive made for my hair. I’ve been trying to revive my curls for a few years now after some heat and color damage, but nothing made my curls look better than my cut and style with Mark. I dont trust anyone with my hair besides him now. He was super nice, fun, and actually taught me how to style my hair for my curl type. I love my new haircut, thank you Mark!

    I have extremely thick, coarse, curly hair. All my life this has been a struggle for me. I've been a victim of many bad haircuts given by people who did not understand or appreciate curly hair. Because of this, I had been reluctant, for many years, to let anyone give me anything more than a trim. My hair was getting so hard to comb out, I felt stuck with the choice of wearing it up in a messy bun or pulling the sides up with a clip and having my hair turn into a thick, tangled ball of frizz. Wash, rinse, comb, repeat. I feel SOOOO VERY BLESSED to have found Mark's salon when I was on vacation in California. I am THRILLED with my new haircut! Mark did a FABULOUS job! I knew when we talked on the phone that he thoroughly understood curly hair. I was SO HAPPY he was able to fit me into his busy schedule. He knew exactly what he was doing, what I wanted, took his time and explained everything. He also introduced me to Ouidad products, which I LOVE, and showed me how to use them to enhance my natural curls. I thought I already tried every product, cut, style and technique just to end up disappointed. Amazingly, I didn't know anything about Ouidad. Mark gave me the cut I've been wanting. My husband loves it too and I've received many compliments. It is so much easier to take care of and I feel better about my appearance. After several weeks, I still LOVE my new haircut! I have absolutely no regrets whatsoever trusting my hair to Mark. Going to see him was the best thing I've done for my hair in years. If I lived in the area, Mark would be my regular stylist, without a doubt. I may just have to take vacations to get my hair cut by him! I would HIGHLY recommend Mark for all your curly hair needs. Not only is he a skilled stylist, he is also very friendly and personable. A visit to him is well worth your time.

    Mark is fabulous and I am glad I found him. I was at a holiday party and ran into a curly haired friend who looked absolutely stunning in her crown of curls. I could tell she was sporting a new cut or product or BOTH! I asked her and she shared with me her secret ie. Mark, aka the Curl Doctor. So I must also thank this friend for sharing. I booked an appointment and Mark explained the Ouidad technique and showed me how to style my hair. I am in my 40's and realized I had all these misconceptions and mis-teaching's about curly hair and how to care for it. I have always asked hair stylists if they knew how to cut curly hair or I would seek a stylist with curly hair since I thought they would know how to cut my hair better but obviously they use the same technique they use on non-curly hair. So I was forced to pay for haircuts and styles that did not do much for my curls. I wore it long for years to avoid the triangle shape of having shorter hair. Well the long length dragged on the curl and did not allow for any bounce. The longer I allowed my hair to grow the more volume I seemed to lose up top from the weight and I thought this was from my age. Mark showed me that this was not the case. He cut my hair and styled it and I could not stop smiling! I loved what I saw in the mirror; my own crown of curls. I loved my hair style so much that I bought my daughter, who also has been blessed with curly hair, a gift certificate for her to come with Mark. If you are reading this I hope you call and make an appointment with Mark, you will not be disappointed.

    Mark is absolutely fantastic!! I don’t think I ever had my curly hair cut properly my whole life until now!! I finally feel like the curls are free to go into their properly curl pattern without being weighed down or stretched out. His technique has let the curl blend properly with no visible distinction of the different layers throughout. The product used and sold by Mark is also great and leaves curls feeling natural and free. I am from Canada and will come back to get my hair done by Mark.
