I got my first Deva cut with Melody in the fall of 2015. I was SO excited to learn how to manage my curls better. I have very fine, thin hair, and the curl falls out very easily. The only instruction I got before the appointment was not to use product. My hair doesn't curl unless I style it, so the "natural" hair I walked in with was fuzzy and limp with very little curl. She cut it that way in random sections, no attention to individual curls that's supposed to be a key feature of the Deva cut. I told her I do wear it straight sometimes and that my curls have highly variable moods and that I didn't want it cut longer on one side than the other which would look bad when my curls changed. She did anyway, a solid inch and a half shorter right at my face on one side than the other. It NEVER matched after the day of my cut.They tossed me back and forth between people - an intern for washing, Melody for the cut, a third person for styling, then back to Melody. No quality time, no personal attention. It felt like an assembly line in a factory.The only good thing about the whole experience was the initial training with noodling, which helps my hair form defined curls instead of fuzz.They put huge clips in my hair at the roots which lifted the curls but put huge crimps in my hair that left glaring patches of exposed scalp. They also noodled my hair into very thick curls clumps, which allowed for very few curls and emphasized how thin my hair is.Maybe Melody is great with other types of curls, but it was an absolute waste of time and money for me. When I spoke with the salon owner about my less than ideal experience, her response was "Not everyone likes a Deva set."
Soooo...after waiting for a year and a half, I have finally made the jump to get a devacut done. I am not going to lie I was scared to get it done because I have never really had my hair cut, just trimmed. I emailed KKBB and sent over inspiration pictures. What I was seeking out was to get a bang and have more body to my hair. Coming into the salon, I was soooooo excited because this cut was to inspire a new self and basically say goodbye to the old Mari and hello to the new Mari who would move to Chicago! First and foremost, when you email the inspiration pictures, let them be inspiration and done expect the same exact cut because that's what I was expecting. But let me tell you that you can put your FULL FAITH into Jayde because it's like she looked at the pictures and just began to sculpt from there. Jayde also walked me through the entire process of taking care of my hair and even wanted to educate herself on other products that I was using to ensure that I was doing right by my hair (which is what I want in a stylist)! Once everything was said and done with the process, I was in shock (NOT IN A BAD WAY), but because I couldn't believe that was myself looking back in the mirror. I wanted to cry tears of happiness because I felt like I had the cut that was meant for my face and personality! Now, don't be worried when she is done because your hair might be a little damp and she said it will take time to dry and get that body. PLEASE LISTEN TO JAYDE WHEN SHE SAYS THIS! She was sooooo right and a couple shakes with my hands to get more body and BAAMMMMM! it was like looking at a completely different person. I honestly felt like I was looking at the woman I have always wanted & hoped to be! Stylish, bold and strong is how this cut made me feel! I can't wait to see Jayde again before I move and I will come back to see her because she is THEE CURL WHISPERER!If you live in the state on Indiana, you must go see Jayde! If you are having second thoughts about getting the devacut done, please take it from me...GET IT DONE! It will be the most liberating thing you could ever do for your curls.
I recommend jayde ( aka the curl Whisperer :) !! ) to anyone with curly hair I was very scare about cutting my hair after multiple bad experience at other salon but she took the time to talk and listen to what I had to said. Great service. She took the time to teach me how to style my hair and give me additional tips! After so many year I have found my go-to person for my mane!
I debated getting a curly cut for months thinking that it might not be worth the extra money, but after going to several stylists and being disappointed every time with my hair cut, I womaned up and called Lauren. It was the best decision and experience ever. Lauren did a dry cut on me, which was a first. She explained how to apply the products, and I learned applications techniques that were mind-blowing (for me at least). I don't even recognize the curls that I have right now. They look like I've used a wand to get them, but it's all me :) I still get those curls on my own, too, which was the true test. I don't think anyone could be disappointed with Lauren's hair magic!
I got my first Deva Cut with Lauren Kay this past week. This was by far the best salon experience I have had ever! Everyone in the salon was friendly. Lauren was super knowledgeable, about curly hair, and ALL types of curls, it was evident she has a passion for her profession. I have several textures in my hair 3c-4b and she tamed everyone. I left with well defined frizz free curls. My next appointment is already set, wonderful experience!
Lauren Kay spent 90 minutes with my 7 year old daughter and I, tailoring a cut just for her, and walking us through products, tips, and tricks to make managing her curls easier. She was enthusiastic and clearly loves what she does, and made my daughter excited about her beautiful curls! We're hooked!
I have gone years with straightening my hair, never wearing my curls. Lauren is super enthusiastic, optimistic, and very easy to talk to. I have never had a hair cut like this before, where she teaches me how to wash my hair, scrunch my hair, and dry my hair to have perfect wearable curls any time I want! I now have new hair thanks to Lauren. You are doing yourself a disservice if you have curly hair and have never gone to Lauren! She is amazing and fabulous!
On March 24th I had my first appointment at Kiss Kiss Bang Bang with Lauren. I've never had such an excellent cut specifically for my hair type before. I went with high expectations and I was not disappointed. I had received a very poor cut from another stylist at another salon on February 13 and I was in need of a reshaping and I thought I might have my hair cut as short as possible. However, Lauren did more than salvage a bad cut. She made it look so wonderful. I had wanted a style that was more carefree where I didn't have to twist every single night to blend my different textures and that's what I received. I have told as many people as possible at work today and will continue to share my experience. Lauren definitely helped me reach my goal of a lower maintenance hairstyle that is feminine and stylish. Oh and I didn't bring any pictures with me. After reading previous glowing reviews about her skills I'd let her decide how to proceed. We just talked about my hair, products, and what I expected and she got started. I appreciate her level of knowledge, friendliness and she was excited to see my hair type. That was refreshing. I would encourage women with tight curly hair not to be timid about visiting Lauren because she truly knows what she is doing. I have NEVER had a stylist who professed to know about natural hair to take such care with washing my hair in quadrants to prevent tangles. I could go on and on. I'll sum up my review by saying I will definitely be going back to Lauren---I already made my next appointment. :)
I have finally found the perfect stylist for my curly hair. Lauren really "got"me and what I was wanting done with my hair. This is the first time that I have left a salon after a cut and been completely satisfied with not only the cut but the styling. I got alot of compliments that day as well and 2nd day curls were still beautiful! I am looking forward to a long and happy relationship!
I have had straight hair all my life; I used to perm it in the early 80's just to get a little body! Then as I became older straight hair was fashionable, lucky me! Until I hit my 50's and the strangest thing started happening...significant hair loss by the handfuls! I freaked and what was growing in was extremely curly with some very wicked cowlicks! Straight girl turned frizzy because I was treating my curls like they were straight strands. Lauren at Kiss Kiss Bang Bang compassionately listened to my woeful stories of bad cuts which accentuated my cowlicks, massive collection of lost hair in my hands every morning from breakage and hair loss, and true fear of going bald. Then she spoke about diet and supplements and introduced me to the DevaCurl hair products. After my first curly color and cut, I was dumbfounded...my beauty was back! After a year of agony from 50% hair volume loss I am well on the mend, my curls are beautiful and soft! I drive over 45 minutes to see Lauren, and it is worth every last mile and more because I feel beautiful again :)
Devacurl user for many years now and I cannot use other products. My hair always feels healthy and looks shiny. The frizz is actually under control!!Lauren is the best stylist I have ever been to. She has been cutting my hair for 7 years and I would follow her anywhere. She gives great suggestions on style and color.
Lauren Kay is a goddess with scissors. For thirty years, I fought my curly hair, trying to make it something it isn't. Lauren taught me to love my curls, embrace them, and care for them. I've been with her for about five years now and would follow her to the ends of the earth to care for my curls. When you're in her chair, you feel like the only client in the salon. I get compliments all of the time on my curls now and I've become so adamant about making sure they know Lauren is all they need.
Lauren Kay is my amazing DevaCurl stylist at KKBB. My curls have never looked or felt better, and I have never been able to have such diverse styles or colors. She even cuts my twin daughters' hair, and gives them outstanding attention as well. Highly recommend this stylist and this salon.
Lauren got my hair back into wonderful shape after a dreadful bleach blonde experience. She started me on the Deva line and gave me my first ever curly cut. I have been a Deva lover and user ever since. I would recommend her to anyone.
