I would like to introduce you to Terri Potts. I had the pleasure of meeting Terri when I had just moved to Naples. Finding a salon and a stylist in a new town can be challenging and especially for me with special needs hair, curly, fine and frizzy! Also, I need toxin free products and color. As soon as I sat in her chair, I knew I found the right person for me! I was immediately drawn to her welcoming smile and easy-going nature. We chatted so effortlessly and found so many things in common. She became a fast friend and has been a source of great information about natural, organic and clean anything in the Naples area! Her new salon, Naturally Organic Hair is just wonderful! I am always sure that any product she uses is safe for me and she just does a beautiful haircut. She has incredibly unique skills, and girls; she knows how to cut a curly girl!! She is such a wonderful part of Naples and I would recommend her to anyone!
