"Dionne was a great long-time client and friend. She wore a wonderful curl, but it was a challenge for us back then to get that straightness and shine into her African American hair. We literally devoted an entire team to figuring out waves and curls and perms. We got some absolutely marvelous results — straight, lovely, shiny hair for black women; soft, heavy, full curls for white women."
— As told to The Wall Street Journal
