Heat damage??

Rating
by Vanessa on November 19, 2017

I had Beatrice and when I first got there she felt my hair and said oh it doesn't feel too bad(which I thought was rude because I am not transition or anything my hair is pretty healthy) I ignored it and just kept going with the appointment she washed my hair and put a deep conditioning treatment which was fine. When she started to style my hair I noticed she wasn't scrunching the left side and it was really bugging me but I didn't say anything. I told myself she knows what she's doing she got this. Then she sticks me in a hot dryer when she takes me out I look in the mirror and half of my hair is beautiful but the other half is flat and wavy. It looked as if I didn't have a curl pattern. I mentioned it to her and she told me that's from the heat it's heat damage. Now I only wear my hair curly I deep condition I sleep in a satin bonnet/scarf with a satin pillow case. I follow all of the curly hair rules for her to try to tell me I have heat damage is insane. She shoved heavy products on my hair stuck it in the dryer and said they didn't curl because I have heat damage?? I took a picture of my hair when I do it and when she did it and she really manipulated my curls to the point that they did not look like mine at all. I was so disappointed with how my hair turned out. The receptionist tried to tell me my hair looks good but I saw it and it did not not even at all. I put my hair in a ponytail when I left. I didn't say anything to my stylist because I didn't want to be mean but I will never be going to a devachan salon again or using their products. My hair wasn't nice and definitely was weighed down by products. On a positive note the chairs are really comfortable and she also offered me something to drink several times that was nice.

I look like a poodle now :(

I have pretty wavy-curly hair and I really needed a haircut. I walked in and the only person they had ready charged $175 but I decided it was worth it. The person told me I should get layers, and I trusted him, but with the new curl definition they gave me, it looks awful!! I wish they had washed my hair first to get my curls to their full potential before cutting it!! Before they were sad and droopy, and the cut looked good on those, but now that my hair is a lot fuller and nicer, it looks so bad!! I'm giving it 2 stars because my curls look great-- just not the length.

Better off doing it myself

Horrible Cut

Rating
by Mariee on October 05, 2017

I am writing this review 4 months late because I was so angry and annoyed at my latest horrible haircut! I was so excited to get my shaped refreshed when I arrived for my appointment. The stylist asked what I was looking for and I showed him a picture of long curly layers. I told him my curls were long and droopy and I needed it cleaned, BUT TO KEEP MY LENGTH! He proceeded to chop of a lot of hair, esp the ends..which upset me because I have color. So why get scissor happy?! He cut so much hair off that my final shape made me look like Tina Turner!! I had a mullet with a few long strands in the back which he mad a negative comment about! I was so annoyed because he seemed super cocky when in reality his work sucks! I gave Deva 2 stars because I love their colorists and the customer service.

Waste of Money

I got my Deva Cut here. First, she was running late. Second, I had very long and healthy hair so I just wanted to add layers and bangs. She cut my hair to above my shoulders after mentioning many times I wanted to keep my length. Third, the styling job was horrible. My hair had no volume and looked dry and matted. The next day my hair looked like I had locs. Will never go back to this location!

Terrible Stylist Service!

Rating
by Xena on September 11, 2017

It was my first time at a Deva Salon. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but considering the price, it should have been top notch. Of course it WAS NOT!! My stylist was Nicolle. The first thing I asked her was if I should have a hair cut. She told me that she is only a color stylist and that I needed to book a consultation with someone who cuts hair... Well it did not make sense for her to do my hair in the 1st place since I was no where near getting a color treatment. I did not enjoy the service AT ALL.The only nice person in that Salon is Jennifer at the reception desk- that's the only reason I bothered to give this one star.Bottom line- the stylist should be more informative to the client because we pay big bucks for this....

I didn't know my hair looked like this!

Lydia gave me an expert cut and literally transformed what I thought was just big, frizzy hair with a bit of a wave into adorable loose curls that I've literally never had before in my life. I did not know my hair could look like this.

It's not for every type of hair

I walked in to devachan salon at 8:45 my appointment was at 9 am with a lady named litia who came to me at 9:05 she wasn't able to get my hair curly plus she ened my session at 9:45 my hair was hard in the inside and straight on the outside also puff main while I walked in with my hair curly.she knew she couldn't curl my hair and that I was unhappy and they still charged me $50 I had to go somewhere else and get my hair done ... wouldn't be returning back to devachan.

Not worth the money

Maybe I wasn't clear enough but my the woman who cut my hair did not seem to understand what I was looking for in the style of my curls. They provided me with helpful hints in dealing with my hair and I never felt pressured to buy the products they suggested. However, my regular stylist at a different salon who is not trained in the deva method gives me a better cut at half the price. I wont be returning.

Best decision

Rating
by Jen on December 28, 2016

I was skeptical of spending this amount of money and having someone new work on my hair but it is the best decision I have made for my hair. The salon is beautiful and the stylists all have beautiful hair, even the receptionist! It was a very relaxing and educational experience. I look forward to going back regularly. It is definitely worth every penny. Before I went I had been going natural without heat for a year and I should have gone sooner. I was very disillusioned with the no heat process as my hair was dry and frizzy but after the cut and the lesson on how to style I feel more confident and have never loved my hair more!

Bad

Before I made my appointment, I asked the receptionist if the DevaCurl method worked for my hair type. She reassured me that it did. I have natural hair, a lot of it. The strands are fine, and the curl pattern is tight and irregular.Surprise! It didn't work and there wasn't enough time for the appointment. My stylist started to rush through the finger-combing when she realized how much hair I have, and I left with my hair still wet. During the cut and wash, I expressed my concerns multiple times and was told it would be fine. When my hair finally dried later that day, it was more or less a giant knot. I had to get it cut and detangled at a different salon later that week and was out another $200. The worst part is when I called to discuss a refund, the manager blew me off, stopped responding to voicemails or taking my calls. Boo, hiss! If you're black, go to a salon that actually knows our hair type.

Had my first curly cut at this salon and loved the outcome. Julie cut my 3c/4a natural locks into a beautiful scarlette cut (meaning longer on the crown and shorter, but not shaved, on the sides and in the back). I've received compliments on the cut almost every week since I got it. Julie was personable and explained to me how to take care of my locks to keep them hydrated. I felt pampered and educated during my salon visit. Looking forward to going back for a trim very soon. Great experience!

Helix is amazing!!

by Sonia M on April 22, 2016

I've never had my natural curls look so good!! Helix (stylist) listened to what I wanted, explained to me what I needed to change w/my hair routine and taught me how to style it. PLUS - I got the best hair wash/conditioning ever!! If you have out of control curls go see Helix. I traveled all the way from MA and it was well worth the travel, time & money. Great experience.

Best hair cut and color--ever

Jackie perfectly styled my thining hair and somehow transferred my poorly expressed hope for a hair style into reality. Larry, as always, is a perfect colorist--and creating natural red hair is no easy feat.
