Ecstatically Amazing Experience

Rating
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.

AMZING.

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

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

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

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.

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!

Rating
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

Rating
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.

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

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

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

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

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

Rating
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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

transformed

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

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.

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