Give Diane a try. She knows curly hair. She has several satisifed customers here on these boards. She speaks good English (and good Swedish, too), lived in the US for a year or so and worked in Europe for several years, so she knows western hair and hair styles. She also worked in Hong Kong for a short time.
She’s conveniently located in the middle of Taipei, a short walk behind SOGO towards Civic Blvd. By MRT, get off at the Zhongxiao/Fuxing station on the blue line, taking the SOGO exit (4). When you get out, walk in the direction of Dunhua for about a hundred meters until you hit Da’an Rd. Turn left on Da’an towards Civic Blvd. Pass a 7-11 on your right hand side. The last lane on your right before you get to the Family Mart convenience store is lane 31. Turn right into that lane and you’ll find Diane about a hundred meters down, on your left hand side just after the intersection.
