I am new to the Baltimore area. I've been natural for over a year, but haven't had my hair cut professionally since the BC. I would like to get my hair shaped in a way that will allow me to wear it out without scarves and clips. I have tight coily hair.

CurleeDST (her hair looks great, by the way) highly recommended a stylist, who sounds excellent. She cuts the hair while wet, however, and I am a bit hesitant of that approach, given my tight coils and shrinkage. I still might go there, though, since she did such a wonderful job on Curlee's hair. But if anyone else has a recommendation, please let me know. Also, if the stylist cuts hair while straight, how is the hair straightened? Any pictures would really help out as well.

Thanks!

This is an old post but I revived it whether than starting a new one. I want to know where is a good place in Baltimore to get my hair cut into a nice shape to wear it as a wash and go. Right now, my hair is about shoulder length. Thanks!

I went there for my BC. I wasn't thrilled because I was looking for the precision of a barber's cut and she used scissors, but EVERYONE I saw having their hair done looked GORGEOUS! Natural hair EVERYWHERE!!!

Hi ladies: I still recommend Susan at the Clarke-Morley boutique salon on E. Redwood Ave. in downtown Baltimore. Susan is excellent and can cut and shape natural hair (tight coils or looser ones) without straightening.

I found that even if I straighten my hair it was all still even - she comes highly recommended and is very good! PM me if you would like the contact information. I have been going to her for shape ups for several years and she is NOT scissor happy.

I get my hair cut at Tenpachi on Charles Street (Alisa). It's only $13 dollars, she can cut it wet or dry, she cuts it in its natural state, and she is not scissor happy.

I like this salon because they only cut, color and do wax jobs. They do not syle hair, but they do have styling station. They can usually take same-day appointments and their appointments are doen in 15-minute increments. So, I am in-and-out in 15 minutes.

Curlee, Is Clarke-Morley a natural haircare salon? I like Alisa to cut my hair, but I need to find a natural salon in Baltimore city (preferably downtown) for style and haircare.

I work downtown and I'm looking for a salon in that area myself. Curlee, does your stylist do other natural styles?

I wanted to bump this, since the majority of the replies are three or four years old, but I'm also interested in recs!

I'm looking for the same thing as the original poster - just a place to get a cut (wet preferred) and shape, for the hair that I almost always wear in a wash and go style. So many of the other Baltimore area salon posts seemed to be for sisters who wear their hair in locs or twists, so I don't know if the recommendations there still apply.

From what I've read it sounds like Natural Tanglez and Clarke Morley would be good places for this. Any other good options discovered in the last few years?

(I saw some recs of Lena at Jazmyn's in Randallstown, but I also saw a post of hers in which she said she doesn't cut or shape. Jazmyn's is actually not very far from me, so if anyone can recommend someone else there who handles cutting/shaping natural hair, that would be fabulous.)

Wow! I didn't realize that it had been that long...

Since then, I have learned that I like my hair cut dry because the hair on one side of my head is more dense than the other side. For me, a wet cut will leave me with a lopsided twa. I haven't had a haircut in a while, but when I need a trim, my brother does it, or I go to Will at Reflection Eternal (barber shop) in Charles Village. They don't have a website, but the phone number there is 410-889-8326.

Other good places have popped up all over Baltimore since the original post. :rolleyes:

Na'Klectic Natural Hair Gallery (http://www.naklecticnaturalhair.com/Home.cfm)
Tenpachi (http://www.tenpachisalons.com/)
A lot of people I know like Dreadz N Headz (http://dreadznheadz.com/index.html), but I have never personally been, so I cannot vouch for it.
I did call Clark Morley (when the info was originally posted) to inquire about their services and they were a little pricey for me. ($55) :huh:

More listings here (http://www.treasuredlocks.com/salons.html)

Additionally, I would not recommend The Hair Cuttery(Towson Town Center and The Rotunda specifically)
