I’ve been on my journey for awhile and finally decided to get a devacut. Hannah was the perfect person for my first cut on the curl. She talked me through everything, she asked me about how I wear my hair, what I wanted to gain and what my usual routine was. She gave me tips and tricks on styling and washing. I will definitely be going to see her again.
Hannah is by far THE BEST stylist I've ever had!! I'm in my 30s and she's the first stylist to actually compliment my hair--- I almost cried! All my other stylists have viewed my hair like something unruly to be fixed and never knew what to do with it. Hannah has never seen my curls as something to be fixed--- and she has lots of ideas and tricks to enhance them. My curls have never looked so nice!! The deva cut awesome--- cutting dry, curl by curl, brings back my bouncy curls and I've never ended up with too short of a cut (something that always happened when I got my hair traditionally cut while wet and combed out).I also love how Hannah colors my hair--- the highlights are so subtle and they grow out beautifully. I also can't believe how her method doesn't fry my hair like highlights have in the past.Just a side note; in response to a previous reviewer "withheld", that has NEVER been my experience with Hannah, nor could I ever imagine being treated like that. I can only assume that review is completely made up, so please don't let that reviewer's "experience" scare you from making an appointment with Hannah!
I had the most amazing expirience with Hannah. I drove about 3 hours to see her for my first curly haircut. It was well worth it. I just started my curl journey. I had a bit of heat damage from straightenting my hair. Hannah used a strengthening treatment to get the bounce back. I am so happy to find someone who knows my hair! It hasn’t looked this good in years.
I’m so happy with my hair every appointment! She does wonderful work and is very knowledgeable about curly hair! I received a lot of informative information during my appointments as well to keep my hair heathly in between hair cuts.
Hannah was so nice, and asked me questions to make sure I was getting the right cut. I also asked a ton of questions and she explained everything for me. The devacut is awesome, and I've never been good at doing my hair, but she gave me some confidence to try new styles.
I waited a long time to get my Deva Cut, and was very excited about it. Hannah was very nice, but I was in and out within 40 minutes (including consultation, cut, wash, and styling). It felt so rushed and I was so disappointed. She didn’t even talk to me about what I was looking for in a cut, she just picked up the scissors and started cutting my curls. I ended up with some very short layers on very long hair. Had she asked, she would have known that I sometimes have to straighten my hair and these layers made that impossible. She did walk me through the steps of washing and drying, and product application, but it was all very rushed and was obvious she was running behind and had another appointment coming in. I don’t feel like I got a consultation, more like step by step instructions as she did it. (No explanation as to why she was doing things or using things) The cut did fill my curls in, but I hated the short parts so much I ended up waiting two months and then getting the layers blended and now straighten my hair. (For reference, my hair was near my waist and the short layers were above my chin- too short for a pony tail!) My hair looked horrible when i left the salon, and Hannah said my curls had to “get used” to the new cut. I had an event to go to that day and i ended up going home and re-washing my hair because i couldn’t go looking like that. I regret getting this Deva Cut so much- my hair was never the same after it. It’s been several months and I’ve given up on curly hair.
I took a chance and drove almost 100 miles to get my first Deva cut and color with Hannah and I'm soooo glad I did! She is a genius and artist when it comes to curly hair! I am thrilled with my new curly hair and color! I can't wait to return for my second appointment with Hannah and she is such a sweetheart!
Hannah is amazing!! She is very knowledgeable about the DevaCurl products.... great stylist.... I will continue having my hair done by Hannah...
I highly recommend Hannah if you're looking for a great devacut and pintura color! As a very curly haired person I'm pretty picky about my cuts and color because I've never been able to find someone who knows what they're doing. I shopped/looked at reviews for 7 different salons and hair stylists before I went with Hannah and I'm so happy I finally found someone I like. Hannah cut and colored my hair and it honestly was the best haircut and color I've ever had. She not only shaped my hair for the perfect amount of volume and colored it to exactly how I wanted, she also gave me tips on how to style it. She's great with long, thin curly hair (which I have) and listens to what you want. I've seen some of her work on other lengths and thicknesses and they look amazing.
Hannah was so nice. She really took the time to make sure my hair was cut with care. She also really knows her Deva curl products and took time to show me how much, which products to use and when, and how to apply them all correctly. I felt like I asked a million questions and she happily and eagerly answered them all. I am very pleased with my cut, my hair feels so much healthier already. Also any girls looking for highlights or color options Hannah is truly your girl. She's an artist for sure and hair is her canvas. Thanks so much Hannah! I found my new favorite stylist.
Hannah was so kind and accommodating to my busy schedule! She took time with me and my hair ensuring she would take the best care of my curls. With a small cut and wash she taught me how to do my hair just to my liking and I left the salon embracing my curls more than I ever have! I will definitely be seeing her again for hair help!
Poor Hannah was put to the test with my hair at our first time meeting. I was long overdue for a cut, the condition of my hair was super dry & the last cut I did get (not by Hannah), had not gone well. She was great explaining what she was seeing, what we should do & how I can do everything on my own once I am home. I left with a great curly cut & a clear understanding on how to maintain it. Thanks Hannah for reminding me that I do love my curly hair! It was definitely worth the three hour drive to see her!!!!
I was very hesitant at first to book an appointment not knowing if it would really be worth it. I should have done it a long time ago. Hannah explained the process, how to keep my curls healthy and how to use the Deva Curl product line that best suited my curls. I was amazed at how great my curls looked. I have never been able to achieve these results before. Bye bye frizz!
After years and years of bad haircut after bad haircut, I have finally found Hannah! She always does a fantastic job! Each time I walk out of the willows, I have a spring in my step (and in my hair!). If you love your natural hair, but need some help to make it more manageable, go see Hannah! You will not be disapointed.
best in the midwest, hannah is my favorite!
Hannah is amazing! This was the first time I ever let anyone in a salon cut my curly hair and, needless to say, I was nervous. I have had horrible experiences in salons in the past and always found excuses not to go and spend the money. Once I heard about the Deva cut I was considering going in and I'm so glad that I did. Hannah did a great job. She shaped my curls and gave me volume up top. She explained what she was doing the entire time with what products and told me what I could do to improve the quality of my curls. I will definitely start going to see her regularly!
Hanna is fantastic! She takes her time to explain YOUR unique curls; & what routine will best get you to freedom! [free from damaging products/tools/accessories!] It's a LOT of info, bring backup if you can. I got pictures & video to help me remember, til it becomes second nature [old lady, here!] They are a Great team ; & like me, you WILL be back! Thanks to EVERYONE for a delightful experience, & see you again soon!
I have never met someone more excited and enthusiastic about hair... correction- Curly Hair. I have struggled with my hair all my life and it is great to meet someone who is so skilled and knowledgeable with curls. Hannah has taken the time to show me how to care for my hair. She has introduced me to all the DevaCurl products and shown me how to use them with my hair. Salon Decadence has a great vibe, and is very well maintained and clean. They offer a large variety of services and I cannot wait to take advantage of all they offer. Thanks and see you soon!
Lovely, friendly salon who do a great job with curly hair. Explained the process and products to me during the cut. Definitely planning on going back in the future.
