Terri Potts

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!
