Where The Curly Girls Go!
I called the salon very last minute hoping to get in that same day, and Luvena was able to squeeze me in for her last appointment of the day. Everyone at the salon is very personable and my cut was exactly what I wanted. I plan on bringing my daughter in with me next time!
I went to Luvena Leslie to style my natural 4a hair. I was not impressed at all. I even called her after the appointment to discuss, but have yet to receive a response.
My journey to Luvena was truly a cosmic alignment. I live in Charlotte NC and Googled Curly Hair Salons Charlotte. Luvena's salon came up immediately. After perusing the website and her social media pages, which all looked FABULOUS, I decided to schedule. She got me in for that Thursday and I was so excited. She then sent me the address and my heart sank!! Oh no!!! Connecticut?! How did I miss that?! Since Luvena did her training in Charlotte NC she comes up in a Google search for Charlotte. I thought all was lost until I remembered I had a flight booked to NYC a month later. I emailed her back explaining the mixup. She was so understanding and told me that she has clients that take the train to her from NYC. Yay!!! So I scheduled during my trip and rode the Metro North Train to New Haven. After grabbing a coffee I took a $9 uber to her shop. I was warmly greeted by Luvena. The shop was clean and tidy with plenty of products for sale. Before she ever took out the scissors she consulted with me and examined my hair and answered all of my questions. She carefully went curl by curl snipping with great care and attention. She then no-poo'd, conditioned, detangled and styled by hair wet and placed me under the dryer. My hair came out absolutely AMAZING. The definition, body, softness and shine of my hair was unparalleled. All weekend I got tons of compliments!! Even now after a crazy weekend--2-hour train ride, 12-hour road trip, more rain and a 2 hour flight and not to mention sleeping--my curls are perfectly frizz-free, soft and moisturized. Luvena has got the skills and sweet personality to boot. She makes you feel comfortable and patiently answers all your questions. She even went above and beyond and promptly emailed me the regimen with all products used post-visit with pictures upon request. I will be visiting whenever I'm in NYC and referring everyone I know nearby to Luvena!!
My four-year-old really needed a cut by someone experienced with curly hair after another stylist butchered her hair. Luvena was fabulous with my daughter, chatting with her the whole time, and making her feel comfortable. Luvena managed to even out her hair and give it a really nice shape without needing to lose nearly as much length as I expected. We were very pleased and will definitely be back.
I went to Luvena Leslie for a deva cut and left with hair that was a good three inches shorter on one side than on the other and chunks were hacked out all over the place. It was so bad I had to find another stylist within the week and have it re-cut (and it had to be cut extremely short to get rid of the mess). Horribly disappointed and will never go back.
