Katie LaMonte, 21, student, George Washington University
Stylist/salon she swears by: LaMonte says she “never felt that anyone understood” her curly hair until she met Lauren Tenney at Fiddleheads, on 17th Street near DC’s Dupont Circle. She says the salon, which caters to curly heads, has a small, family feel: “Everyone seems to remember me.”
How she styles: LaMonte washes her hair every other day or every three days and uses DevaCurl AnGell on her wet hair before she blow-dries it with a diffuser.

Where did he get his hair cut last? “A place in Annandale. I don’t remember the name, but I’m not going back. They cut my hair like a soldier. I had to fix it myself.”
Ever have a different style? “My hair was very long maybe five years ago, down to my back. But it looks better short because it’s thick.”
Why he’ll stick to Asian salons: “Even famous salons can’t cut Asian hair as well as a Korean salon because they don’t know how to treat the thick hair.”
