Overpriced, gone downhill

by amanda on January 15, 2018

Such a shame. I've bee going to this salon for many years, and the amazing Lorraine Massey used to give me such a brilliant cut. I work hard and it's not cheap, but Lorraine is a lovely curl. She followed each curl to its natural conclusion. However, recent experience not great. Staff distracted, a little arrogant and my friend who tells it like it is summed up my new, and expensive cut as me looking like: "an inverted pyramid"! brutal, but true. My hair is long at the top, and really short at the bottom. However Ed, as always did a great job o colour. What a shame this salon has become a victim of its own success


by Anonymous on January 12, 2018

I went to the salon on January 12 to cut and color my hair. My stylist Nevila was amazing. After she cuts my hair, she calls over the colorist Ed. As soon as he approached me he looked annoyed. He didn’t introduce himself & went off to say that he only had 30 minutes to do anything to my hair. Then he said what I wanted wasn’t going to work. I’d only come back to cut my hair not color it if the colorist are as rude as him.

Perfect cut

by Jillian on December 27, 2017

When I came in for my second Devacut earlier this month I had been transiting from a Keratin treatment for 18 months. My ends were clearly sparse because of the chemical, but I was wary of cutting my hair too short. Mia made it work! She cut off a lot of my damaged hair while not making my hair look too short and giving me a great shape! The woman that washed my hair was also excellent! The wash and go lasted for 5 days just as they said it would and probably could’ve lasted for longer.

best thing i did to my hair

by xoxo on December 23, 2017

i was so exited to go and it was worth all the money

Dominique is great!

by Marcy on December 11, 2017

Dominique gave me my first Deva cut in years and the compliments keep coming. He turned my unruly blunt cut into a cut that frames my face perfectly and has so much character. He is fast but that's because he's great! I'll definitely rebook with Dominique.

Have you heard of fat shaming? Well come to Devachan to get curl shamed!

by Bella on December 09, 2017

I have been on my curl journey now since March, therefore like many curl newbies I had lots of damage and a long way to go. I’ve been in to Devachan three times. Unfortunately it’s hard to find great curly hair salones. Also, DevaCurl products are amazing and I am sure that Devachan has great passionate stylist I’m still hoping I will find them. I went in for a DevaCut because my hair was a mess. However I will start with the stylist in the chair nearby who would not stop staring at my hair! In total disgust. Secondly, my stylist Dominique did seem to know what he was doing, however I just felt so uncomfortable. DevaCurl stylist act as if they have never seen damaged hair, and make you feel disgusted about your hair. He explained to me that my heat damage was causing my hair to break. He ended up cutting a lot of which is good because I needed, however offered no styling tips. Didn’t make me feel like there was a lot of hope, even though my curls have flourished more and more each day. He also seemed to not care less about my curls or suggest anything to me. Sometimes stylist need to have enthusiasm, and also offer advice. You’re the expert, so I expect that would get some kind of advice. However, I would like to thank Tico! For helping me and giving me a good pep talk on why cutting my hair was the best thing I could do.

Very disappointed

by Isabella on November 27, 2017

Don’t go to Dominique for a haircut! He gave me a haircut and it’s all uneven! I didn’t even ask for layers, I noticed he did it when I got home! How is he working here. I’m so disappointed! No wonder his Instagram has none of his updated work. He seemed like he was in a rush while he was giving me a haircut. His advice for my hair journey was so blahh. He sounded like he didn’t even want to answer the questions. Very disappointed with my first devacurl haircut.

Great experience

by Sasha on October 02, 2017

So I’m writing this like 3 months after my cut but better late than ever. I was so afraid of the whole experience mainly because I’d never let anyone who isn’t Dominican cut my hair. I know that sounds pretty ignant but it really was important for me to have someone who understood my hair and the cultural associations with Dominican hair. Anyhow deva chan was totally accommodating and Melanie was super sensitive to my apprehensiveness and hooked me up with a great sensible cut. She not only cut it well but also gave me styling tips and made the whole experience pretty awesome. Thanks Melanie and thanks DevaChan!

Ecstatically Amazing Experience

by Carmen on September 13, 2017

Took my GURLS to get their back to school BIG DevaCut for their first time and their excitement was so contagious I was as excited as they were. Their appointments was with Jessica and she was AMAZING, she educated them and made them feel like a rock star. Definitely recommend this place for any one looking to embrace their natural mane beauty. She showed us how to take care of our curls the good ole fashion ways, no need for fancy tools just HYDRATION and conditioning with of course the Deva products.


by Lucy on September 10, 2017

I went on the 7th at 4 p.m, Jessica was and is an angel! She knew what to do & she compromised with what I wanted. The woman that washed my hair did an amazing job. At the end, I was so so so happy with my cut. My hair looked brand new while I had 3rd day curls. The only thing that I didn't like was that the woman that washed my ahrindidnt tell me the products that she used on me.

Fantastic experience and a new chapter of hair

by Arianna F. on August 10, 2017

I went to Taylor on 3/17 and was absolutely treated professionally and with the utmost kindness and respect. She is extremely knowledgeable and did an awesome job transforming my curls into a hair do I can manage and do on my own. I receive compliments daily on my hair. It is now August, my hair has still maintained it's awesome shape and grown out beautifully. The products are also fantastic and speak for themselves. My hair is completely transformed.

Have Never Looked Worse

by Gaby on August 03, 2017

I have been to Devachan two times before and had been looking to this haircut for weeks. I booked my appointment with Gin. I told her I did not like many layers but she insisted that was what I "had to do..." She cut my layers so much that my shortest layer is above my ears for my below shoulder-length hair. I have truly never looked worse. When I told her I was concerned about how short the layers were, she simply said "well I told you you have to make the layers short," and then proceeded to take an "after" picture of me to post on instagram. I am extremely upset by this haircut and cannot even put it back because the layers are so short. I have never looked uglier.

Scissor happy- Epic Fail

by Anonymous on August 02, 2017

I got my haircur with Jessica. I informed her my goal was to just get a trim and maintain my shape (from a previous devacur) . I also said I aim to grow my hair longer. She seemed to completely ignore what I say, changing my hair shape completely and got too scissor happy. Now I'm back to square one. My shape is also like an awkward triangle now. I went from hair below my boobs to barely under my ears. Waste of time. Not getting a devacut again.


by Elaina H. on July 29, 2017

The best thing I have done for my hair in awhile. I had my appointment with Domonique, who was extremely friendly and professional. I came for a cut due to major heat damage and dryness and I left the salon feeling like a new person. Can't wait for my next cut.

Bad cut and even worse color!

by Diane on July 28, 2017

I got a cut and color last weekend. After spending $300 my cut has no shape, my hair roots are way darker than the rest of my hair, and my hair is super frizzy after my colorist left me under the dryer forever. After my hair was done I asked my stylist "does this look like two different colors?" And when I went to pay the front desk asked me if I was there to check out - probably because my hair looked so bad he thought I must be coming in not leaving.

Very Honest Review on Experience

by Hannah V. on July 21, 2017

I'm mainly writing this review to give a huge thanks to Melanie! My hair was very choppy and uneven before getting it cut and shaped by her. I showed Melanie a couple of reference photos just to give her an idea of how I wanted my hair shaped (of course I did not expect it to look exactly alike) but to my surprise... she managed to get my cut looking the way I wanted. Her technique of cutting the hair and triple checking to make sure it is even in length made me feel less nervous for the end result. I'm sooo happy with my hair (and I never ever write reviews so I can assure you.. I mean it!). My hair looks super healthy and I've been getting compliments left and right. She was also very sweet and easy going and mentioned having 15 years of experience! *** ONLY DOWNSIDE (depending on your styling preference of course) is the amount of product they apply to hair. I like volume and my hair doesn't really like having a ton of product weighing it down so if you'd like, I suggest letting either your stylist or their assistant (when washing + styling) know how much product you prefer.

Not happy a happy client.

by Regina on July 20, 2017

I went to Devachan Salon -Broom St for a second cut. I was not pleased. I was not told that the stylist that would be cutting my hair was a student. I was very unhappy with my hair cut. Now i have to wait for my hair to grow back. The Stylist was well informed but the cut was not what I expected for the price.

Rick: A True Pro and a Master of Curls

by Tom on July 18, 2017

I've been seeing Rick at Devachan Broome for what must be fifteen years now and there is no one else I would trust with my hair. So few Caucasian men in New York wear their naturally hair curly...perhaps out of fear or out of bad past 'fro experiences. Rick knows his way around a scissors like no one's business and creates a great look every single time...carrying out my haircut visions no matter how impossible I think they might be to achieve. Not a day goes by that I don't get a compliment on my haircut.He takes his work incredibly seriously and yet also has a wonderful sense of humor. As a result, my haircut appointments always fly by, and thanks to Rick, I leave with no fly-aways! :)

Best thing I've done for my curls

by Ashley on June 08, 2017

I'm in love with my curls, I wish I recorded all the process. Once I got there the service was great and welcoming. I learned a lot on how to take care of my hair and about the products. Gin knew exactly what to do with my hair, she was very friendly and nice, was always having a conversation with me. I learned a lot even about their hair products and honestly if it's not DevaCurl products is garbage trust me

Great service, minor mishap

by Elba Rangel on June 06, 2017

It was my first haircut in NYC, I was nervous about it but my hair was super dry and my last haircut was 5 months ago, so I really needed it. Jessica F. did an amazing job reviving my curls, she explained how to use the products in order to keep my hair hydrated, she was great and super patient.The only thing that I have to complain about is that someone took my raincoat from the rack in the downstairs lounge (it was one of those 24hrs rainy days). Jessica and other girl (guess she's the manager) were really embarrassed about it, they gave me some free product, told me they were going to check the security video to try to figure out who took it and get back to me. Its been almost two weeks and I haven't heard back from the salon. It is really a shame that their costumers do this kind of things, it gives the salon a bad reputation and it's making me second guess if I want to go back.Oh, if you are the girl who took it and you are reading this, just remember that karma is a b...

My hair has never looked better

by Michal on March 30, 2017

First, the salon is beautiful. They have great customer service from the moment you walk in the door. I got my hair cut with Jessica. Follow her in insta @fitzed_devacurl. She was a blessing. I learned SO much about my hair, and how to treat it while styling. I've never had such a great haircut, and NEVER have a walked out of a salon with my natural hair feeling more confident. I was super skeptical before coming here, and I heard mixed things. I'll never get my hair cut anywhere else, and I can't recommend Jessica more highly. She completely transformed my hair. I've been following the regimen she recommended, and my hair has been getting curlier and curlier every week. I've been to a lot of hair salons and I always seem to get an uneven haircut, except when I came here. They just understand curls. My hair is not super coiled, I have a few ringlets here and there, but I'd describe my hair as wavy. For those worried that this isn't for your hair type, as a wavy-haired girl I can say that this is def the place for me!

the best salon for curly hair

by Irina on January 26, 2017

About 5 years ago, i FINALLY! accepted my wild curly hair and it was the best thing i've done. Aside from it being an upscale salon with great amenities and a nice space, the hair cuts i have been getting (which has been at least 10 by now) have been pretty amazing. Julie has been cutting my hair since the beginning and she really is a master with those scissors. I have had a great cut every time. Larry is a great colorist. He knows sometimes better than me what i want, which i appreciate because i end up looking fabulous everytime. Prices aren't cheap which is probably why i dont get my hair cut as often as id like but its well worth the money. Strongly recommend these two to anyone with any hair texture and curl type.

Best curly hair salon anywhere

by Yvonne on October 04, 2016

Larry is not only a great colorist but a great friend now as well. Rick cuts my hair to perfection and I love their products. Yay Devachan !

Not what I expected

by Elizabeth on September 13, 2016

I expected the stylist to cut each curl individually as I've seen in all of the videos. Instead, she combed out my curls and cut layers using the same tequinique as all salons; the only difference is that she cut my hair dry vs wet. I had thought curls shouldn't be combed out?The result... I look like I have an uneven/bad haircut because my curls shrink to different lengths. The only reason I'm giving 1 star is that the stylist was very professional and invited me back for the following week. She also followed up on phone and text.

best hair cut I ever had!

by Martinique on May 31, 2016

I heard about this salon and was visiting new york and had to go! The cut and advice I received from my stylist Danielle was amazing. I have never had such a great haircut and was never felt so relaxed getting my hair done. We need this salon in London but guess for now need to be going to NY to get my hair done!

Knowlegdable staff

by Tanya on May 19, 2016

My curl specialist was Julie. She transformed my hair and taught me about how to care for it. She was most definitely a skilled artist when handling my curls. Thank you!


by Vanessa on March 17, 2016

The junior stylist knew a lot about hair and the products and informed me well on how to take care of my hair she also washed and styled my hair beautifully but I noticed that after I went home I still had A LOT OF MY SPLIT ENDS left. We specifically spoke that I wanted all my split ends cut so I can start off fresh, its been a month and I already desperately need a haircut

Great beauty experience!

by Adrienne W. on March 14, 2016

From my entrance, I was treated in a professional and friendly manner. The salon has a very clean and pleasant atmosphere. My stylist was Latoya. She was great. She explained every process to me, the products that were used and how to apply them. The shampoo chairs are the best on the planet!


by D. Robinson on March 07, 2016

Beautiful, high class, fun, friendly, intelligent and the best customer service ever. my stylist, Jessica not only transformed my hair, but she educated me on what i was doing wrong and what i needed to do to maintain healthy beautiful hair. She patiently listened to all of my concerns and answered all my questions. i entered the salon with my hair looking like dried out shapeless steel wool (no offense if you like that look) and left with soft, shiny, well defined curls. And, yes, the cut is awesome. Was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY! I will not waste another penny buying, trying, or mixing up another concoction. i have finally found what i have been searching for.

Learned how to care for my hair

by Allison on February 12, 2016

I wish I'd learned all the tricks of the trade when I was growing up—it would have saved me many years of awkward hair days. The stylists at Devachan introduced me to No-Poo and the most essential tip: stay away from towel-drying! Use an old t-shirt or kitchen towel. It saved my life. Or at least my hair. Best hair advice ever.

An oasis in the city

by Amy C. on May 18, 2015

I go into this salon stressed and come out feeling completely relaxed. It really is an oasis in the city.
