I've had a Japanese Straightener in my hair for the past 10 years... By 4 different stylists... Larry was absolutely the BEST....! He is Very patient and it was a long process but I've never been happier w the results. Sometimes it is lifeless and too stringy-straight --- but not w Larry! It is perfectly Straight w some body, absolutely no kinks (there's always 1 or 2!). Would and will go back. Fantastic Personality- which is a Huge deal when you are spending hours together :)! Thank you Larry!

Recent curly-haired transplant from NYC metro area worried that I'd never find anybody here who would "understand" my hair. After extensive research I found Larry Dunlap. Thought I'd give him first shot and if I didn't like him, I'd move on. Never had to move on. Larry has my hair in his able hands forever. And now,my adult son who is very fussy about who handles his hair, is also a Larry Dunlap regular client. And big bonus: Larry is also a terrific guy.


Great Cut and Color

by CJHeller at Citysearch

Larry has done my highlights since I moved to Raleigh. I find it hard to find someone who does great, natural highlights and Larry is spot on every time. His ability to mix and match colors, add highlights and lowlights, and create a great look overall is spectacular.

Larry is also great at cutting and styling. Taking in my job, schedule and lifetime into consideration, he manages to create a cut that works perfectly for me. If you are looking for a stylist in Raleigh, I highly recommend him!

Larry is an excellent hairdresser who knows what he is doing. He takes the time with you and is highly skilled in his profession. I would recommend him to anyone for color or cut.

Excellent haircut--worth the price
by graypenguin at Citysearch

Larry's work is amazing. He is knowledgeable about current trends, skilled at his trade, and a very pleasant and accommodating person to interact with. As a guy who never really understood what to ask for when getting a haircut, I haven't had hair that looked this good in 25 years.
It's no $12, bargain-basement typical guy haircut; you're paying for quality and personality, and you're going to get it.
