A good stylist for Asian hair?

asian woman playing with her hairV. emails:

I desperately need a new hair cut, and I was hoping your reader can help. The problem was it is hard to find a good hair stylist for an Asian hair. Would you mind asking your readers to see if they have a suggestion?

We've had a few questions before about finding a good hair stylist (linked below), but this is a new twist on the question.

Got a suggestion for V.? Please share!

I love Addie at Choices salon in Delmar. It's 20 bucks for a haircut (no wash/blowdry). She has been cutting my thick Asian hair for over a year and hasn't given me a bad cut yet. She understands that Asian hair needs to be cut differently and is quite meticulous about her cuts.

I've got finer, thin Asiany hair, but I've enjoyed my cuts from Christopher Brian salon (with Christopher) in Cohoes. They last several months before I start seeing any split ends. It's $35-50 for a cut (I think they start you out lower and then gradually increase the price per visit).

Thank you so much for the suggestions!

Just for a clarification. I have a fine, thin straight hair. Although the hair is straight, the end will flip the wrong way if it is not properly cut & styled. I have been told that it is because I have Asian hair and it needs to be cut with different technique.

I have very fine hair as well and have had that issue - I'm not sure if that's an "asian" thing or if the person was just making generalizations that just aren't true?

Anyway - Salon 109 in Albany has always treated my hair great. I think some of it too is based on how you style it, not just on the cut - they not only cut my hair but have provided advice on how to maintain my hair in the way I want it to appear every day.

I have thick Asian hair and just got my hair cut by Christopher at Christopher Brian salon in Cohoes as well and really like my cut.

I have been going to Peter Romano at The Cuttery on New Scotland Avenue for many years. I had waist length hair and I let him cut it years ago. He has been the only hair stylist who has been able to cut layers correctly into my stick straight Chinese hair. Every time I discuss a new hairstyle, Peter has not failed me yet. Otherwise, I get my hair cut in Chinatown whenever I go back to NYC. My hair stylist in Chinatown always comments that she thinks Peter does very good haircut.

Sorry V, i've tried several places in Saratoga county and they've all messed up my hair. I go to Flushing or 32nd st in manhattan (korean salons) and get my haircut and coating whenever i go back to Queens or NYC area

Cindy -- where in Flushing? We go to Flushing every other month, so I could that next time too. Any particular place to recommend?

A quick update. I just got a hair cut with Christopher at Christopher Brian Salon in Cohoes per suggestions here. Really happy with the cut and really like Christopher. He gave several suggestions on how to maintain the style. Plus Bumble and Bumble products smell sooooo good on my hair!

Thanks again everyone for your suggestion.

I voted yes, but I think there has to be a revote. if not, then the school board is saying that votes don't matter, all that matters is that we got what we wanted. I think that is a very dangerous road to go down. They need to do it right and make sure everyone who is eligible to vote has the opportunity to do so. There were enough problems to easily say that people were denied the opportunity to vote. We don't want that hanging over our heard during this important project.
