I'm a licensed hair stylist with over 10 years of natural hair styling experience. I love all DevaCurl products and use them as well.
I did my research to find a salon that I trusted for a few months before I decided on VIP Dominican and I have to say I am highly disappointed. My whole life, no one has know how to really cut my hair because of my curl pattern so I figure I would try a “curl expert” and it was not what I expected. I searched around about how a deva cut is and for my understanding it is a dry cut, Marlyn did not cut my hair dry, she did a regular wet hair cut. She didn’t pay any attention to my curl pattern or my curls in general. I waited close to 3 hours to just get a basic haircut. My hair is now super short (which I don’t mind) but my “deva cut” experience was really infuriating and sad. I wouldn't recommend my friends or family to go to VIP Dominican. I felt like Marlyn rushed through my haircut and actually told me that she doesn’t cut hair dry because she’s a “hair stylist”, she did not mention this to me during my consultation, she mentioned this after she started cutting my hair wet. If I would’ve known this was going to be a regular haircut I wouldn’t have gone through with it. At the end, I spoke with Marlyn and she understood I wasn’t happy but now my fear for a haircut is higher than ever.
Marlyn Cruz has been doing my hair for years. This past week, i got a deva cut and a full style and repair with devacurl products. I did research for weeks. My hair is back to healthy and naturally curly. The color damage is gone. She and DevaCurl are a miracle! Call her NOW!
