I am in Atlanta and have not been able to find a good stylist. They all want to put layers in my longish blond hair. It is terrible, and always looks choppy and fried. I also don't want a high maintenance hair-do. I don't mind a quick blow dry and a flat iron to touch up. Most stylists I have seen don't know how to properly layer. I don't mind a little around the face. My hair is very thick and mostly straight with a wave underneath around the back. I was thinking a sort of classic bob.
