I'd like to start by saying that I'm sure the stylist does great work. The person who was there before me left looking great. But that person was new to keeping her hair natural and needed a lot of guidance. On the other hand I have been using deva curl and wearing my hair natural for years. I told her what I did day to day and she told me it was all wrong, and sold me up on new products. When I got home and looked in the mirror I started crying. She had somehow made my tight corkscrew curls much larger. Still curly but a lot less so than before. I washed my hair the next day and it looked better but it didn't start looking good unit I abandoned all her advice. I'm sure if you have no clue what to do with your curly hair she's great but if you already have hair you love stay away.
My experience at A&M; salon was great! I came to Monica with extremely damaged hair that was under-hydrated, blowdried, and had been straightened for most of my life. Monica was able to see past how poorly I had treated my hair and spent about two hours cutting, conditioning/washing, and styling my hair!She listened to my concerns and carefully explained the step by step process. I was initially very worried about having all my damaged hair cut off in one sitting, leaving me with a short cut that I would be devastated by. But, Monica reassured me that we could start with a great shape/cut and get rid of the most damaged parts. We agreed to continue the work on my healthy hair journey in subsequent appointments, every 2-3 months :)
I've been a client of Monica since she began her work with DevaCurl about 7 years ago. She is well trained in all the Deva techniques for cutting, coloring and styling and continues to develop her skills and knowledge all the time. The website doesn't have this listed, but she's also a local trainer for Deva and is a Deva Master Stylist which required a lot of training and effort on her part. She knows how to dry cut better than anyone around, and really takes the time to work with you to figure out the best look and cut for your hair type and face. She knows all the products and makes great recommendations about how to use them in the best combination to get the style just right. I've tried a few other curly hair stylists, but Monica is the read deal and the only person I trust with my curls now. My last haircut was the BEST I have ever had! Her salon is really cute and the view of the ocean is great. If you are coming from a long way to see her, plan on having lunch at Sam's or take a stroll down to Half Moon Bay. She's worth the trip!
