Kara is Level 2 Advanced certified and Studio K carries all the Deva Products.
Booked the DevaCut experience (my 1st one ever and a let down), it was not as described on the website and did not include the "3-step" training, clips and microfiber towel or how to incorporate DevaCurl. The cut was OK, but certainly not transformative like the pics posted on the website - I got not complements and NO ONE noticed a difference in my cut. I did like the color and the fact that the dye used is free of the nasty chemicals present in most dyes. You are probably wondering why I didn't say anything during the service, I figured that maybe the teaching happened at the end of the service. Instead I was rushed through a color, rinse, dry while Kara and her assistant talked about her customer's personal lives, likes/dislikes (I would not appreciate my stylist sharing my personal info with strangers). At this point I needed to go to work, I forked over $350 (YIKES) dollars for the same service I could have received at any other salon. According the devacurl site there is supposed to be a styling and coaching session - mine consisted of a few snips, toning, coloring my roots, rinsing my hair, drying it and then handing me the bill. (cash or check only, at the rate she charges she can afford a square reader for credit cards). This was definitely anything but a Deva Curl experience. To be clear the appointment was booked on line, the Deva Cut Experience for first timers was booked, but not delivered as described. Will give it another go with another DevaCurl pro.
I don't write reviews often, but felt it wouldn't be fair if I didnt! Kara is a wonderful Deva stylist. She is so kind and down to earth. She is very knowledgeable about curly hair. I have very tight curls and she's so excited to cut and style my curls, which is quite different from stylists I've had in the past. Where other stylist would be intimidated, Kara is not! Curly hair definitely is her passion! She's a great teacher as well and gives enough info to her clients to take care of their hair at home! I get compliments quite often about my hair cut! Give Kara a try, you won't be disappointed!!
