More information coming soon! In the meantime, contact the salon with your questions and/or take a look at their website.
About 3 weeks ago I decided to embrace my curls. I bought the curly girl handbook and read it on a Saturday making notes as needed. I also purchased the the Deva Curl Sampler Pack, it has No Poo, One Conditioner, Curl Cream & Light Gel. After the first week my hair was O.K. but I hated how dark it looked curly and I wasn't a pro at styling. So, I came to this site, researched, contacted Echelon and made an appointment with Sherry. I had to wait two weeks to fit my schedule, but it was worth the wait! I arrived, Sherry greeted me, we discussed what I wanted (better curls, learn to style AND lighter hair!) Sherry trimmed my curls, got rid of my dark color, made it two shades lighter to match my eyes, deep conditioned my hair and then showed me step-by-step how to get the most of my hair. I LOVE it, what a difference a day makes! She's easy to talk too and now I have someone to do my grey roots every three weeks that won't hold me hostage in the salon for two hours! Super excited to have found this woman. :-)
I was so nervous about getting my hair cut. I have gone to the same stylist for 18 years. My stylist retired and it left me in a panic. I had a friend tell me about Sherry. She sent me to the website the other day to read her reviews. Well the first review, by Mary, was terrible, which made me even more nervous. I contacted my friend and told her about the review, she said to trust Sherry, so I did. She sent me Sherry's instagram hashtag that showed some of her work...#hairbysdcThose pictures made me feel so much better. I just saw Sherry today. She did a great job on my color and cut. I asked her about the bad review she got from "Mary". She said that unfortunately, the part about her ruining the girls hair was true. She was very honest about it. I'm glad I trusted my friend. Sherry was kind, and attentive to detail. She taught me things I never heard of. Plopping is going to be my new best curly hair tool. I will always miss my previous hairstylist, but I'm so grateful I found Sherry.Thanks Sherry for the education, the great cut, and the Honesty.
I'm new to curly hair, thanks to Sherry!! My sister recommended Sherry and I am so glad I gave her a try! I never thought I had curly hair, but she took one look at my hair at our first consultation and changed my life! With a great haircut, product recommendation, and styling tips, she had my previously dull, fine, straight hair transformed to curly and fabulous! People couldn't believe my transformation! I still LOVE my new style, and since then have gotten bold enough to change my hair color from the blond I have always been to a beautiful red, and I received even more compliments! I trust Sherry to always give me an honest opinion of what will work with my face shape, features and skin tone and I have never been let down. Thanks Sherry, you have a customer for life!
Sheri was awful!! After reading these previous reviews I am concerned for any future curly girls considering to go to her. The first time I went to her she cut my hair properly. However the second time, she absolutely ruined it. Many styling have thought my hair to be African American in the past. However, that's more of a racial judgment than it is accurate. I have super curly hair. She proceeded to do the "African American" cut on my that she learned on YouTube. Two months later my hair is STILL awful. She cut chunks out and now my hair is in awful layer. It looks TERRIBLE. Sheri proceeded to tell me I don't wear my hair right and that my nose looks big the way I style it. She made me feel so crappy about myself. I'm still so upset I am considering asking for my money back two months after even. It's not like hair can be glued back on. I would HIGHLY suggest going to someone who knows how to cut curly hair. A lot of stylists are getting certified to give the "deva cut" but they don't really know how to work with curly hair. That is Sheri, please don't go to her she DOESN'T know how to cut curly hair and she is rude.
I had the best haircut ever! I love my Diva cut by Sherry. I now can embrace my curls instead of dread them. Not only did Sherry take the time to cut my hair to enhance my curls but she showed me techniques to reduce frizz and have more style! Thanks Sherry for getting me on the long and curly path!!
I had my first official Deva cut with Sherry this last week and really couldn't be happier! Strangers are complimenting me left and right! I wasn't sure what to expect pre-cut, but had done a ton of research about the deva method so I was attempting to replicate it on my own. Sherry gave me an amazing cut and taught me how to make my curls gorgeous all the time! I left the salon beaming and really haven't stopped since! Seriously, best cut and styling and tips ever. Looking forward to our next appointment, Sherry!
Sherry is absolutely amazing. I had my first Deva Cut with Sherry and I was skeptical at first, but it came out absolutely spectacular! I've put the ball in her court to do what she thought was best, and I regret absolutely NOTHING. She also is the woman to see if you're interested in getting a perm (or probably any chemical treatment)! She takes her time with everything from cuts to treatments, and washed my hair for 10 minutes so it wasn't smelly. Best experience ever, I've been back more than once, and will definitely be back for Sherry. If you're looking for a wonderful cutter, stylist (including help, since I am one who needs that) or are interested in something a little different that involves chemicals: look no further. Sherry all the way!!
Sherry is the BEST!!! I was ready for a big change with my hair and really did my research and found Sherry here on this site. I am 52 years old and have fine curly hair. I have been having it chemically straightened every 4 months for about 3-4 years. I had it grown out as far as it would go. I came to a place in my life where I wanted to live and embrace the amazing curls that God had given me. From the very first conversation on the phone, Sherry was so attentive, caring and knowledgeable! She scheduled our first appointment together with the perfect amount of time to have a thorough consultation, amazing haircut and style. This was going to be a huge emotional change for me and I am extremely cautious on who touches and cuts my hair. She took all the time I needed to make sure each and every one of my concerns and questions were answered. I ended up having a Pixie cut done. Yes, I cut all my hair off, about 10" - 12"! Sherry gave me one of the best haircuts I have ever received! She listened to me and guided my choices with sound, solid and professional advice! She worked with my particular hair, face shape, life style, and etc. She took every possible fact into consideration.I LOVED MY NEW HAIRCUT the moment it was finished! I still LOVE my new haircut! I have returned for a second time. She listened again to me and provided a couple of slight adjustments and gave me another amazing haircut! People are constantly giving me positive compliments on how much they love my hair, curls and new style! She changed my life! Sherry is truly a fantastic and gifted artist and hair stylist in every way! I would highly recommend her with any type of haircut, especially curly haircuts! Thanks Sherry!
Thank you Sherry for fitting me into your busy schedule and saving me from weeks of trial by error frustration. I had recently discovered Deva Curl products but couldn't determine how much or what product would work on my wavy to curly frizzy hair. Not only did Sherry solve the product problem, she took time to fix my damaged hair with a deep clean followed by special conditioning with instruction to follow up. I headed home smiling with all the teaching I had been looking for as well as a plan to take care of my unruly hair daily. The dry cut is beautiful and even, color natural and I couldn't be happier with the results. THANK YOU Sherry
I've gone to Sherry for over a year now. When I first went to her, she was not Deva certified, and even back then, it was the best haircut of my life! I've never had a stylist be able to make my hair look so good, and I especially have never had a stylist who could attempt to style my curls. They always turned out crunchy with no volume. But Sherry styled my hair perfectly! I should add that I believe my type of curls are somewhere between wavy and boticelli. My most recent visit was a few days ago. This time around, Sherry is now Deva certified and so her amazing skills are now fantastic. I am so pleased with my hair cut! My curls are really defined and are easily styled. I like to put in minimal effort in styling my hair, so I know I have a good haircut when I don't have to spend much time on my hair! And I must add, Sherry is a wonderful person, not just a wonderful hairstylist. I'm sure everyone who goes to her has an enjoyable time.
I'm so very happy that I found Sherry. After seeing the positive reviews on this website, I decided to try her out. Having experience with curly haircuts, I could quickly tell she knew exactly what she was doing. My appointment was in December and I've been waiting to write this review to see how long the cut last. I'm so happy to say that it has grown out nicely! Sherry also did low-lights for me, which look fantastic and natural on my mostly gray hair. And I took home two great products based on her advice. I also thought the prices were very reasonable. Sherry is the best!
I've never had a haircut that I really loved until I found Sherry. Not only is my cut and color lovely, but she spent a lot of time giving me instructions (and reprimands!) for how to style my hair and what to STOP doing. Brushes and combs have been banished and all is good in my hair world. Go see her, you won't regret it.
Sherry is magic!! I walked in a frizzy mess without ever wearing my curls down and danced out not only with beautiful curls, but with the confidence to embrace what I was born with and how to recreate Sherry's magic at home! Sherry combines her talent with empathy and an embracement of curly hair. I cried tears of self-acceptance and joy when we were done!
Sherry is magic!!! Thanks to her curly hair empathy and embracement, I feel beautiful in my own curls again!! I walked in a frizzy mess and danced out not only with beautiful curls but with the confidence to embrace what nature gave me and the knowledge how to recreate Sherry's magic at home. I cried tears of self-acceptance and joy when she was done!
Sherry is such a great lady. I have been to her a few times now. She is a good visitor and listener and a really positive spirit.Over the holidays, I wanted something different for my hair. I was so bored of the same old style. So, my teenage daughter inspired me to go hombre. I brought in the picture and showed Sherry. She was a little thrown by the request as it wasn't a style she was anticipating doing for me that day. Being her typical Sherry self though, she started in on my hair and even ran to the store to get some supplies she didn't have on hand while I had some sit time with product on my hair. She stayed well beyond her planned off-work time that day and I left with my hombre. However, being the perfectionist she is, she encouraged me to come back a couple of days later to fine tune the coloring. She wanted the blond a little blonder and the dark brown a little darker. I came back and she worked on getting things just right. I could go on and on with details of the experience. To make a long story short, Sherry aims to please. She wasn't going to settle just to have my hair done. She wanted me to walk away with her perfect vision, and I did. I love it and so did my family! Thanks Sherry!
To start off, Sherry is absolutely wonderful. She knows what she is doing with your curls. I have super curly hair, it's almost kinky. She made it look and feel better than it ever has. She shaped my hair to reduce the "lamp shade" affect that tends to happen when curly hair begins to grow out. I would recommend her to anyone. She knows how to use the products, and will help you to find what's best for you.
Finally found a stylist I can trust with my hair (trim, color, suggestions). My hair is manageable, and always looks great!
Sherry cut my hair yesterday with a Deva Cut. Let me tell you, what a weight off my shoulders. Sherry was fast, efficient and very nice. My cut has held up overnight which is unusual and wonderful
I had the experience of having a Deva expertise Sherry, to color & cut my curls! I'm very picky with who I can trust with my hair. While looking for a new stylist, there was no doubt in my mind that Sherry was the one I would choose. She is the best at what she does, and I'm so blessed to have found her! Thanks Sherry!
I was at the point of giving up and straightening my curls. Sherry gave me the best color and cut of my life. My hair looks and feels so wonderful! It washes and transforms into a beautiful style that looks so good. Sherry was such a blessing to find! I love my curls again!!! Thank You Sherry!
I have spent so much money straightening my hair! Now, with Sherry DeTinne Cassel being the Diva specialist that she is, I have embraced my curls because they are beautiful! She is a curly hair QUEEN!
PHENOMENAL!! Sherry transformed my hair from a damaged mess to a beautiful head of Deva-curls!! Sherry is very knowledgeable & educates you along the way as she heals your hair, as well as perfects each an every curl!! She is an Amazing Deva-Curl Stylist!!
So happy (and relieved!) to find Sherry at Echelon Salon...I have wavy/slightly curly hair that seemed to confound most stylists. I often end up with too many layers or not enough. Sherry's used the Diva cut to balance my hair perfectly. She knew exactly what I needed with little explanation from me. I receive so many compliments!
Sherry was able to fit me in on the day before Thanksgiving. Even though she was unable to dry my hair completely because it was the end of the evening, it was more important for me to get a cut. She is knowledgeable about curly hair and gave me many tips along the way. I used to go to a Deva stylist in SF but now I no longer have to make the drive. I look forward to going back to Sherry - she was enjoyable to chat with, too, and is very passionate about her craft.
Found Sherri by luck but I'm so glad that I did. Not only did she give me an amazing haircut but she eased all of my fear of trying a new stylist after 7 months of avoiding haircuts because my last stylist moved. She talked to me throughout the cut telling me what she was doing and why and her confidence with curly hair completely eased any lasting anxiety I had. Sherri is amazing and I'll obviously be seeing her again!
I found Sherri by luck and just have to say that she is AMAZING! She absolutely eased any anxiety I was feeling by just telling me what steps she was taking and through her confidence and experience working with curly hair. I plan to make Sherri my regular stylist.
Sherry at Echelon has been cutting and coloring my hair for 13 years. I started with Sherry when I first moved to Folsom and have continued working with her even after moving to the Bay Area. Sherry is worth the 3 hour drive! She has always done a wonderful job with my cut and color, and has given me great advice and recommendations. I love the Deva cut...my hair looks amazing and is much easier to style. Sherry is a terrific stylist and color expert, and I would highly recommend her!
Being new to the area, I was relieved to find Echelon on the DevaCurl site with experienced stylists for curly hair. As soon as I sat in the chair, Sherry took the time to consider my color, cut and curls. I trusted her recommendations and ended up with a beautiful head of hair. She cut my curls dry turning my round, thick, frizzy shape into a style that suits my oval face, she helped me use products to soften and define my curls, and chose a shade that complements my coloring. The experience was uplifting and it all had to do with Sherry's expertise. This is the start of a long relationship….
I was skeptical about getting my hair cut while dry at first, but the results speak for themselves! Sherry was great and made me feel comfortable with the process. I will be back!
I had the most amazing experience with Sherry who Gave me my first Deva Cut!! She's awesome :) Her technique & knowledge is very impressive. She heard my concerns & that Trust is a huge factor, I hadn't had my hair cut in 4 year's. That's how long I've been living in the Sacramento area. I highely recommend her. Sherry, Thank you for making me feel beautiful. :)
Wow, I am 48 and have fought with my curls my whole life. Not only did Sherry make my hair look wonderful, but she brought it back to life with the Deva products. She didn't just do my hair she taught me how to do it. I have to say I've never quite experiences a cut like this...dry hair...no combs are brushes...styling products that dry stiff and crunch into a soft, shiny beautiful curl. When she showed me she was putting 2 golf ball sizes of gel in my hair I thought she was crazy. I knew this would be the end of this relationship. Boy was I wrong. Trust Sherry...she knows what she is doing, and she's really nice too. 5 star experience!
I had my first Deva cut with Liisa. She did an awesome job. She took a lot of time to look at my hair and my previous layers and was able to figure out the best cut for me. She was knowledgeable in hair care and the do's and don'ts of curly hair. I have been to numerous places with my curly hair and none of them style my hair curly after the cut it was always straightened and Liisa styled my hair super cute!!! I would definitely recommend her!
