And what is wrong with our Panamanian Stylist.
It's been my experience that Panamanian stylists are not taught how to cut short hair. For example, my hair is short and easy. In the States I could get a good haircut anywhere. I've been to more Panamanian stylists than I can count, but have had only a few, apparently random, good haircuts in five years. Their prices can't be beat, though, so I haven't given up.
Joan - I sent you an email - check for it and your SPAM box.
JS - it is not so much the cut but the hair texture that can make the difference. The hair texture of some of the Gringos is different from Panamanian hair - which from my observations is usually on the thick, straight side with texture. Beautiful hair that I admire and sometimes wish I had.
Not everyone can cut Asian hair or African-American hair or naturally curly hair, etc - so you need to find the person with that experience.
I had long shoulder length hair - simple style - just wanted a trim and follow the layers - I left with 4 inches less and a chopped haircut.
However one finds the same problems in the US - there are many US stylists that cannot Gringo hair. Hence we are always in search of the perfect stylist.
My wife uses a Panamanian stylist and has for years. The secret is to find one that your are comfortable with and can develop a relationship with. Second almost all will try and do their best to accommodate your cut style. She had to work with her stylist on how she wanted her hair cut but now she is happy with every cut. By they way she has very fine hair. Have you tried Millie across the street from Melo. She speaks English and a very personable lady. Also above Constructor there is a mother and daughter team we have used often. Always very happy with them. Last but not least if your looking for an American Stylist they are probably working illegally and if your using one of these your not really supporting the local economy.
