I am a "curly" girl, and Bari Goldin is my guru. She has given my fine curly locks a rockin' cut and my hair has never looked better. Bari really listens to what the client would like to achieve, and will work with the client to achieve those results. She is a master stylist, and a perfectionist. Bari will also show clients how to maintain the style at home using Devacurl products. I can highly recommend her to any "curly" girl who wants her curls to rock! Thank you, Bari!
Scott did a great job on my Devacut! Unfortunately he didn't use enough product on my waves (I have thick hair) and told me they are only supposed to use 1 pump of products on clients. When washing my hair, he said he used the Decadence conditioner (which is a milk and too heavy for me and is for super curly hair) but then said he used the One Condition Delight when I asked him later. As a result my waves turned out like noodles and appeared weighted down after they dried. Once I came home and restyled them, they look much better. He didn't seem that knowledgable with the curly girl method or techniques outside of the basics. He did give me a quick lesson, which was nice but it was stuff I felt like I already knew. If I went back I would probably see Bari.
I found Emmi D Salon on the Devacurl website. I contacted them on a Thursday to get in for a cut and highlights on Saturday. They were able to accommodate me on short notice. In addition to that, this was my first ever cut with a stylist that had specialized training for curly hair. I have to say it is by far THE best cut I have ever had. Scott was amazing. He explained why curly hair is dry cut. He also explained each step of the cleansing process in order for me to be able to recreate my hair style at home (I had told him I wanted something low maintenance). I will definitely be back.
Where do I begin when reviewing someone as amazing as Jenni?! When I first moved to Phoenix, I was still going down to Tucson for my cuts every 8 weeks. My hair was fine but I never left the salon excited about what my hair looked like. I had pretty much assumed that having curly hair meant I never was going to have that fresh-out-the-salon hair that straight haired women always seemed to have. When I finally started seeing Jenni and got my first DevaCut years ago, it honestly was hair and life changing. I feel like Jenni truly knows curls and knows my hair better than I do, which is not something I ever felt with anyone who cut my hair. From beginning to end, my hair is healthier, shinier, and my curls less frizzy, more bouncy, and more defined. I see Jenni for my Deva cut and full color. I also was turned onto DevaCurl products and swear by them. As a child, I honestly did not ever fully understand my hair. As an adult, I could not be more grateful to have found Jenni! My curls have never looked better.
I drove from Albuquerque, New Mexico (6 and a half hours) to see Scott, and I plan on doing it again in a few months! He transformed my curls and gave my hair volume and bounce. Not only was he a fantastic stylist, but He taught me how to work with my curls at home. I CANNOT WAIT to go back! ♡♡
I saw Bari after the rave reviews and I was not disappointed! She took the time to learn about my lifestyle which I really appreciated. This was my first DevaCut and first major hair cut after a horrible experience of a new hairdresser attempting to layer my hair. I spent years just keeping my hair basically one long length. I wanted to improve definition and lift in. Bari started me on that journey by adding elevation and teaching me how to properly wash and style my curls. I will come back another time to get it even shorter and add more elevation. She said I should get used to it this way and then come back for round 2. I don't think my wallet could handle coming back regularly...I will just have to take many pictures and rely on my trusted and cheaper hairdresser to get me by while I save up for round 2. Overall, very very happy with Bari and I will be back after my wallet recovers lol
While I've completely loved ditching the long and tedious process of straightening my hair, I've never been able to find a curly stylist with both skill AND inspiration enough to give me an edgy/trendy curly cut that worked for my thick hair.I've been disappointed with consistent mediocre results for well over 3 years. And one Deva stylist even told me that since I had curly hair I couldn't really expect to have both style AND curls. Insinuating that style was only for people with straight hair. (Never went back THERE again!)I finally found Bari at Aura and just had my 2nd cut with her this week. FINALLY!! This lovely woman is fabulous, skillful, and talented and I'm so grateful and impressed!Bari is willing to go wherever you want to take your hair. And she will give you honest feedback about your proposal. No one has ever been able to give me a cut that provides volume at the crown until Bari who looked at the wild curly picture I'd brought in as an example and said, "I like it, let's totally do it!" And my second day hair is to die for! I couldn't believe it when I woke up this morning. Every other cut I've ever had leaves me flat-headed on top as the weight of my hair brings all the curl right down on either side of my head. I end up with too much volume at the jaw line and look like a triangle and I've hated it.Bari shaped my curls fantastically well and was willing (what are other stylists so afraid of?) to design the short layers required for volume at the top. Now I can basically refresh a little, shake, and go.I'm so thankful. I've been looking for this cut for over 3 years. I can't wait to see what we'll do in the future!
Bari is amazing! She knows curls; how to cut, style, and care for them. I live in Alaska and I've been embracing my curls for about two years after 35 years of straightening them. I read the curly girl book and used the devacurl products. However I wasn't completely satisfied with the cut. I couldn't find anyone with the experience and training cutting curly hair the "right" way (yes, it is different then any other hair type) Bari was professional and knowledgeable. My cut is perfect and it looks better than ever. She will be my first stop every time I come back!
Years ago, My sisters dragged me into Aura Salon to see Bari, who had been cutting their curly hair for awhile. I showed up with a picture of the "style" I wanted. Her first statement was tough love... "This is for someone with straight hair. You don't have straight hair." Instantly, I knew that she was the stylist for me. No nonsense or trying to please me, and as a result, I have darkened the door of the salon on a regular basis, just because of Bari. I have embraced my curls and I am forever grateful to Bari for being awesome. My hair has never been healthier or looked better. Bari, if you read this review, we are doing bangs next time! See you at the next appointment.
Bari Goldin is amazing! I have very curly textured hair and this was my first DevaCurl/cut experience so my anxiety level was pretty high. Bari made sure I was comfortable and even asked me to tell her a little bit about myself to get an understanding of who I was and what I was looking for with my hairstyle change. She knows what she's taking about, is patient and actually listens. I highly recommend not only the Deva product but Bari specifically, especially if you've had a traumatic experience with getting you curly hair cut. It was definitely worth the time and money to walk away feeling like my curls were taken care of. Thank you!!
