I went to Bella on Friday October 20, 2017 for the first time to get a DevaCut and style with Brittany. I had done my own research before deciding to go there because I wanted to be sure about my decision. I have a lot of hair and it's thick. From the moment I walked in, I accidently came face to face with Brittany and one of the owners, Christian. They greeted me and I went to check in with the woman at the desk. When Brittany took me to her chair, the first thing she did was talk to me about my hair, what I was hoping to achieve shape wise and length wise, and proceeded ro explain to me what a DevaCut was and what she was going to do to my hair from start to finish. So, she started to cut it and took maybe about 15-20min to cut and talked to me the whole time. She asked me all the questions you expect like what I use in my hair, how I refresh my curls, etc... She did not take off a lot in length at first because she wanted to cleanse and style my hair and see where it would shrink up to after the initial cut. After sitting in the dryer for maybe 15min, she took me back to the chair and finished with the diffuser. After she was done, I had told her that she could cut more length off because I did not mind my hair being a bit shorter. Overall the salon it self was a cozy feel, which I like. I liked the cut and style. I really liked how she talked to me the whole time, explained each product and how I should take care of my hair. The people who work there were all very nice and I appreciated Christian asking me how everything was going, if I was happy, and if Brittany was doing a good job (which she did).
I whish I was referred to Erin years ago! Erin knows her stuff! She really takes the time to explain the process and why things are done a certain way that really makes sense. I didn't realize there was such a science to curly hair, but that explains why I was never really happy when I left other hair salons. Now I leave the salon with the sexy sassy curls I see in magazines. I'm able to get the same results at home because of Erin's instructions, she really takes the time with you to make sure you fully understand. I'm now constantly getting compliments on my hair. I will not let anyone else touch my hair!
Brittany is such a talented deva stylist. Love going to see her, she always gives me such a great curly cut. She knows just how to give me that perfect hair day!!
Erin L at Bella Salon gave me the best haircut of my life! I wanted to make a big change and Erin worked with me taking it a bit slow until we were both satisfied. The vibe of the salon is very calming. I would recommend this place to anyone. Maybe a little off the beaten path, but worth the trip.
If you have ever been frustrated by hairstylists who never seem to listen, please go to Erin at Bella. She always listens to any feedback I might have about how the last cut grew out or how a new product worked. She is an expert at cutting curly hair, and will make recommendations, but will always defer to what YOU want. I've always been happy with the results!
This was my FIRST cut with Erin and will NOT be the last! Wow! This is the hands-down BEST cut I've ever had in 50 years of living with thick, curly, crazy hair! For the first time ever, I can say I love my hair! Erin spent more time getting it right than anyone else ever has. I've had hair that other stylists have looked at in wide-eyed terror, but Erin knew EXACTLY what to do and now...NOW... I know that I CAN get a great cut with someone who simply gets it! Great cut, great advice, great understanding and superb skill and ability. You won't regret it! Take it from a new Devacurl convert. You just won't!
Erin is the very best in not only styling hair but coloring and cutting hair too!! I have always hated my curly hair..that is until I met Erin and how she taught me to handle my curls!! Please do not hesitate to call Erin!! I have been a client of Erin for over 10 years and would not go anywhere else! And by the way, Bella Salon is great...wonderful and friendly people and very professional!! Thank G-d for BellaSalon too!!
Erin worked her magic on my hair which was frizzy and unmanageable for years. I heard of the devacut for curly hair and decided to try it. I have read reviews on Erin at Bella Salon Danvers. She is so knowledgeable about curly hair and teaches you as she goes along. Very easy to talk to and the best at what she does. Step by step she explains thoroughly about how to care for your hair. When she was finished, I was beyond belief. The definition of my curls and most importantly my frizz was gone. i received so many compliments on my hair from many people. Just really made me feel so good. Well, when we were done, I was sure to schedule my next appointment with her. She is like no other hairdresser that I had in the past and really knows how to work the curls!!!! The best of the best+++++++
I have never had my hair cut by someone who knows about my curls. They always cut it wet and when my curls would shrink up, it was ALWAYS lopsided and I never felt comfortable embracing my curls... Until I met Erin. I cannot even put into words how happy I am. She made the experience one to remember. I learned SO many tips and tricks, including the "pineapple ponytail" and how to correctly apply conditioner. I left the salon with a new cut and an awesome take on the ombre style. I couldn't and still cannot stop smiling. Erin is hands down the best hair stylist I've had.
Had my first DevaCut with Erin yesterday morning and can not say enough about the experience. Erin took the time to listen and work through my mass of curls making sure each got the attention it deserved! I am incredibly happy with the results of my new cut and excited to see what comes next! My color is also amazing, bumped it up a bit for Fall and it looks awesome as well!
3 weeks later and my hair is still bouncy, curly and fabulous. Thanks Erin for your expertise of cutting curly hair and giving great tips in styling my curly hair at home!
I found Erin at her new salon after searching for a new stylist. Eris is a dream, she is comfortable and Knowledgeable, with cutting curly hair. She consults with you first to get a feel for your hair and what it is that you want, if it can be done she will do it or tell you what she feels would be better. I have watched her with other clients and they leave there looking beautiful. She is a curly hair whisperer!!! The salon is fantastic too, the owner and the other sylitst make you feel extremely comfortable and ask you if there is anything they can get for you, ie. A coffee or tea. I can't say enough good things about them.
At the age of 11 my mom started to have my curly hair straightened. Next was to have it blown dry every week. Then thoughts of Florida and the humidity came into play. So 2 years ago I tried to like my curls. During that time I had been to 4 different stylists. Then Erin at Bella's was recommended. I walked in to talk on a bad brillo hair day. Before I walked out, I made the appointment. Erin listened and heard what I was saying about hating my curls. It's time you embraced them. So now at the ripe ole age of 68, after Erin cut my hair, I can finally embrace what G_d gave me. Erin is phenomenal.
By the time I was 11, my Mom started to have my curly hair professionally straightened, because she could not deal with it. Next was to have it blown out straight. Did this for about 8 years. Thoughts about moving south, the humidity, maybe time to go curly. So 2 years ago, I did it. During this time I saw 4 different stylists, and no one was really listening to what I wanted. Erin, at Bella's was recommended. I made the appointment. Erin listened and heard what I had to say.....I hated my curls, thought they looked like a brillo pad. Didn't want to wake up in the morning and have to wet and style again. Many times you can spend more time arranging your curls to fall just right. I just wanted to run my hands through my hair and go. Erin listened, and at the ripe age of 68 I can finally embrace my curls.
Erin Lavorante did an incredible job. She made me feel so comfortable! She explained everything beforehand, you felt so at ease in her hands! She defiantly knows her curls! The salon itself is very welcoming. Everyone is so very friendly! You are well taken care of as soon as you walk through the door. I will be a returning customer from now on! On a side note My prior review, I accidentally put down 2 stars but meant 5 stars! If I could I would triple, quadruple the amount of stars but alas we only have the option of 5!! Now and Forever a Bella Girl! Anna DeWart
I have been getting my curls cut by Erin for many years. Besides being the best at giving a Deva cut she is very warm and friendly! She is so helpful about choosing a color, a new length or trying a new product. I love how my hair looks every time! I drive from central Massachusetts to get my Hair done by Erin. Her new Salon is easy to get to, has lots of parking, and everyone is very friendly! If you have curls or waves go see Erin you won't be disappointed!!
Erin Lavorante is exceptional! She makes you feel so comfortable, really talks to you before she starts doing what she does best...making your curly hair look amazing and beautiful. You know she loves what she does! Will be a client of hers forever!!
I am so glad I found Erin's new home! She is super talented and by far THE BEST curly hair stylist. I live in VA and visit MA occasionally. My next visit I'll be sure to visit Erin for my Deva cut. YAY!!
Can't say enough about Erin and her ability to cut,style and color curly hair. She is not only a stylist, but also an educator and a visionary. She will consult with you, work with you and teach you how to care for your curls. I've been all over in my search for the best curl stylist - Cambridge, Salem, Beverly - tried them all. Erin is by far the best.
I'm beyond happy I found Erin. I went to Bella Salon and Spa for the first time. I love it. Erin was like the a old friend
Erin At Bella Salon and Day Spa is amazing! I started with Erin a few years ago, I had blown dried and flat ironed my hair for 30+ years.... I LOVE my Deva cut - Erin made it SO easy for me to transion to my naturally curly locks and I have not once looked back. She's wonderful, she teaches you how to care for your curly hair and she does an amazing job!
Erin is the BEST!!! In her fabulous new home at the wonderful Bella Salon in Danvers, Erin does her magic for those of us with curly hair. She is a miracle worker with cut and color. Try Erin and you will know you have come to the Beat! Erin and Bella Salon make a great combination!
Erin has been my stylist for the past 7 years. She does such a great job with my cut--an inverted bob--and with my partial highlight. I get so many compliments on my hair, and I have to give Erin much of the credit. She's talented, kind, and warm, and I'm so thankful to have found her.
I've been going to Erin for about 6 years now and couldn't be happier. My curls have never looked so good! She is amazing with color, giving me a fresh look whenever I want to change things up. I found her again at Bella salon after some searching and I'm so glad I did! The staff is awesome, it's such a cozy salon and so welcoming.
Like many curlies I was always kinda "meh" about a haircut, until I found Erin. Finally I walk out of a salon not only with a cut I love, that gets compliments but a style I know I can replicate at home on a daily basis. I've even been to the NYC Devachan and Erin's cuts are as good if not better than those I received there.
Erin completely changed my hair with the Deva Curl system a couple of years ago and I will never look back. She helped me to embrace my curls because of her skill and expertise in styling my type of hair. She is also just a lovely and fun person - you can tell she cares about her work and her clients. The salon as a whole (Bella) is also very well kept, inviting, and the staff are warm and friendly. Highly recommend!
Erin has been styling my hair for more than 8 years now. She is an expert and has given me short cuts as well as helped me transition to long hair. There was never an awkward grow-out stage because Erin is so good at cutting and shaping! And if you are looking for an expert colorist for curly hair, Erin should be your go-to! She has taken me through blonde, black, purple, red and back to my natural color with amazing highlights.Erin really know her stuff and she is kind, caring and passionate about her work!
Erin has been my stylist for years. She was formerly employed by Cala Renee Salon and it took me about 6 months to find her. She is so great that I hadn't had my hair professionally colored or styled for this amount of time. Her new location can't be beat! Very welcoming staff,lots of parking,great coffee(finally) and her artistic ability better than ever! I am so so happy!!! Thank you Erin!
Erin loves curly hair, she is passionate about it. She understands curls and gives the most amazing cuts. She has helped me learn how to love my curls. I travel over an hour to see her and that says a lot because I am a busy lady. She is also very sweet and kind. I would highly recommend her as a stylist. She does such a good job that I am approached all the time by people who say they love my hair.
The Salon itself is very comfortable and relaxing. The entire staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. They offer a wide range of services and skin, makeup and hair products. The best part is Erin though their Deva stylist. She has changed the way I feel about my hair and is amazing with highlights and understanding exactly what I want. She also cut my 6 year old son's hair and I will never again let anyone cut his curly hair! In the past I'd always have to cut it a few weeks before pictures and holidays sovit could "grow" after the cut because everyone cut the front way to short, when we leave Erin it is perfect!
