I went to 2 consultations on saturday. My second consultation was with naomi at Hair Today Gone Tomorrow in nyc. I was impressed. She was very professional - but not pushy - and was more than happy to answer the list questions I printed out from this site. she uses thermolysis, uses disposable needles, and was extremely eager to give me the names of clients who have been working with her. I scheduled my first appoinment for this saturday, so i will let everyone know how it goes. again, any advice or questions are welcome.
