I've been getting my hair cut by Ailie for a while now and I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else! No matter what style I say I'm going for, she immediately gets enthusiastic about it and figures out the best way to make it a reality. My curls never look better than after I've gotten a cut from Ailie. Highly recommend!
I am definitely addicted to deva haircuts and styles given by Ailee! My curls have never looked better! Ailee's expertise is evident as she cuts each curl individually to shape my face. My deva style will even last a few days! The salon is fun and everyone is so warm and friendly! Hannah is also an extremely talented stylist with deva styles!!
In response to Beth. We're very sorry about your unhappiness with our service, Ailie takes her DevaCuts seriously. She cuts all DevaCuts curl by curl and sometimes arcs into the curls to create softer ends (a technique she was taught directly from Deva Educators in NewYork) At the end of haircuts, all shapes are checked for an even look and straglers are cut out or chipped into to make sure everything is laying correctly.
I went to this salon and I questioned from the first moment of her blade on my hair if she really knew what she was doing. Instead of cutting my hair curl by curl as I'm used to, she thinned it with a blade!! And she remarked how the Deva products are causing people to lose their hair. Now, two months later (I had to wait to let it grow out a bit), I am back at Studio Within with Kristy, who really knows what she's doing! I only tried this other salon because it was closer to my home. Do not go to her if you're expecting a good Deva cut.
She did an excellent job on my hair. she kept the length and did as much as she can with the layers considering I wanted it long.I will be going back. This time I still want it very long but I'm willing to go a little more extreme with what we can do with the layers.While I was waiting I saw her cutting a super short, super curly cut and I was very impressed. She knows what she's doing. I wish she was close to Hawaii where are moving. Hahahaha!
She is a true and experienced Deva stylit. She listened to what I wanted and did everything she can to achieve that. Last time I didn't want her to go too crazy. This time I think I'm going for something a little more extreme while keeping my length. She is truly a great stylist.
I got my first Devacut here and I loved it! Ailie made me feel super comfortable and you could tell she was fully confident in her skill with curly hair and had a passion for it. I showed her a few photos of what I was looking at and she gave me exactly what I asked for! Highly recommended her to anyone. The staff were very nice and made me feel right at home.
I am so pleased with my deva cut. My curls were brought back to life! Ailie is so talented and fun. The environment was friendly and it was clear Ailie passionate about her work. I will definitely be back! I highly recommend this salon.
I could not be any happier with my experience with Ailie! She was absolutely amazing and her passion for hair is undeniable and contagious. I had not walked into a salon in over 6 years and never thought I ever would again. But my hair definitely was in need of tender loving care. After much research I decided to check out Aim and Ailie, and scheduled a consultation. During my initial consultation, not only did I fell confident with Ailie, but I was very excited and comfortable about the completely new look I was going for. I quickly scheduled my appointment. The day of the appointment, I was unable to be nervous (even though I was chopping off nearly all my 3c/4a curly hair) because she was so excited and encouraging. Overall my cut, color, and style was amazing!! It was beyond what I had hoped for and I will definitely be returning!
I had a nice experience with my curly girl cut she told me step by step what she was about to do .
