Nikki Dearman-Lambert | Salons of Volterra at Montserrat In her years as a professional stylist, Nikki has been pursued through the Fort Worth area by her fiercely loyal curly-haired following. Having curly hair herself, she understands the lifetime of frustration and challenges that comes with trying to tame or style those curly locks. If you also have curly hair, you have also probably had your share of bad haircuts from stylists who didn’t understand the unique challenges of making curls look gorgeous. Those frustrations are what led Nikki to take her passion to the next level by becoming a Deva inspired Advanced Stylist, through multiple and ever-evolving Deva classes. She understands that cutting straight hair is easy, but styling curly locks takes special skills.The Deva Cutting technique is Devachan’s revolutionary method of cutting curly hair. I would love to explain how it is done. Call me today!
I went to Nikki based on these reviews. She had nothing but criticism about the person that cut my hair the last time. In that person's defense it had been 8 months since I'd had a haircut so the shape that I had was gone.I paid extra for how to use the products and really walked away not knowing more than i did when i entered. I paid $150 for a cut and style that took 3 hours. Is shorter than i asked for. And isn't even. There are tips and uneven cuts all over my head. I asked that she cut off about 3 inches in the back to even it up because it dipped down in the middle. She took off about 6 inches in length. That's going to take a year to grow back. It's not laying right on the right and i told her that before I left. Her only response was we can take it up more. I didn't want shorter so I said no. I thought the whole point of this cut was to be able to see how much exactly you're taking off because it's dry. I shouldn't be double in length of from what i said. My other reason for this cut was so I didn't wind up in tears later like I typically do when I go to a salon that doesn't know what they're doing. Well, tears came anyway. It's to short and not at all what i asked for. When I said something about it she told me that the photo I presented her was photoshopped. I got that photo directly off of this site from another client. She also went on to tell me that it was not a Vidal Sassoon Precision cut it was a Deva cut.When you spend $150 on a cut, it should be what you wanted. To add insult to injury she wanted to charge me $170 because she said my hair had issues. My hair is health, non colored, curly hair. My only issue with it needed to have layers be reshaped and have the dead ends cut off. That is not what I got. I won't be back, and I will probable not try a deva cut again.
I started my curly hair journey 1 yr ago. I didn’t really know how to properly care for my curls and wanted to learn as much as possible and revive my curls. My journey started with a deva cut from another salon. Let’s just say it was a rough start as that cut set me way back. Was not a good experience. Months later after growing out a bad cut I was ready to try again. I found Nikki and after reading all her amazing reviews I took a chance and so glad I did. She is a true curly hair genius. She literally transformed my curls. Extremely knowledgeable and truely gifted at what she does. She also gave me amazing highlights and my curls have never looked this good, so bouncy and healthy. I will never go anywhere else!! Thank you Nikki!!
Nikki was amazing! My curls feel alive and free! Love the way she treated me and understood what I wanted from the moment I walked in!
I wasn't exactly sure what my hair needed, I just knew I needed some help and Nikki made some great suggestions. My hair feels healthy and happy now, I'm so excited! I found her through this site and knew that 40+ raving reviews weren't wrong, so I drove nearly an hour to have her cut my hair. Definitely wasn't disappointed! :)
I am always terrified of getting my hair cut. It had been over a year, so it was time. Nikki was great! I left smiling, with a great cut! She was very positive, knew exactly what she was doing, and was all about curl love! I officially found my stylist!
Nikki gave me a hair cut in June, I totally loved it! It was the first time ever I was happy after getting a hair cut. She cut it short but my curls came back to live!! For my next Devacut I went to another place because it was closer and cheaper, What did I do?? My hair looks totally different, in a bad way... Now I'm waiting for my hair to grow so Nikki can fix it. I'm not going to lie, it is expensive but at least you will be happy with the results :D
Today was my first visit with Nikki...she assessed, patiently spent time learning what my challenges have been and what I wanted and then cut and taught me some new tricks along the way on how to bring out the best in my curls. I left with a bounce in my step (partly to get to feel my curls bouncing :) ) because for the first time in a very long time I finally got the cut, style and time and attention that us curly girls crave...thank you Nikki for just being you!
Nikki did an incredible job with my difficult hair! First haircut in 28 years that I've ever loved without a doubt! She is full of knowledge and more than willing to share. For the first time in my life I will be able to recreate what she did in the salon! She has incredible skill with curly hair. Also, very much enjoyed her personality and the conversation. All in all 10 out 10 experience and I recommend her highly to all curly girls! I will be returning from now on!
I always avoid getting haircuts because I had bad experiences so I just would get trimmes; I never knew how to style my hair either. So I put a leap of faith and schedule with Nikki and it was the BEST DECISION EVER!!! she helped me comfort me that so taught me how to treat and style my hair. I left the salon leaving SUPER EXCITED with hope.. I never had a hair stylist had I would recommend or would go back to, not anymore I finally found my hair stylist and recommended everyone go to Nikki.
I had my first curly appointment today. I learned so much from Nikki. She did an awesome job on my hair and helped me to learn more about how to treat my curls. She is very passionate about curly hair. I have been doing so many things wrong, so glad I will be able to correct that and celebrate my curls!!! Thank you Nikki!
She is great a really nice person. Positive vibes every time you talk to her when i started transitioning she was de firts person to cut my hair. i love the way she cuts my hair. She always explains every detail about every product she uses on my hair or if i have a cuestion about a product she always gives me a great answer i totally recomend her
Nikki was amazing! I had no idea how much potential my hair had until Nikki worked her magic! For my first ever Deva Cut, it was an incredible experience! Definitely will be going back!
We got a deva curl cut and consult from Nikki, she wanted my daughter to embrace her curls. The right cut and treatment gave life to her curls!! We are so pleased we found her!
This was my first curly cut and I was NERVOUS. I have never, not once, had a good hair cut experience in all my years of trying to force my hair to be straight. After seeing Deva Curl on FB and doing some research, I decided to give curly a chance. And now, thanks to Nikki I'm fully embracing my curls! Not only was Nikki the most knowledgeable stylist I've ever met, she was the most kind as well. Which makes her truly special. She listened to everything I said, answered my thousands of questions and completely transformed my hair. I have never in my 31 years walked out of a salon feeling as good as I did after my appointment with Nikki. She is truly one of a kind. Thank you, Nikki!
My teenage daughter found Nikki online and insisted that we give her a try. I am so glad that we did! My daughter's hair is very fine and has a very kinky and often frizzy curl. Nikki really understood my daughters hair type and did an amazing job! She did a Deva cut, style and some subtle Pentura highlights. We are very pleased and would highly recommend using Nikki!!
I discovered the DevaCurl way about a yr ago and my hair came to life with the new cut! But in Jan and Feb I experienced substantial hair loss due to thyroid medication. My beautiful curls became very patchy and stringy. My regular DevaCurl specialist was out for weeks due to illness, so i was beside myself. Then I found Nikki and she saved the day with a fresh new cut that compensated for the hair loss! Thank you so much Nikki! You are definitely worth the drive from Dallas to Ft Worth!!
I just found Nikki recently and I can't believe what I've been missing! In my 52 years no one has ever taught me so much about my own hair and how to get gorgeous curls. I always thought I had wavy/curly-ish hair that frizzed. Now that Nikki worked hair magic, told exactly which products were best for my hair type, and taught me how to use the Deva curl products properly, I have beautiful defined curls that last! I even wake up in morning without my usual bird's nest! I can just freshen up my curls a little and go! I just can't believe it! If you are tired of stylists who say they know how to cut and style curly hair when they really don't, make an appointment with Nikki. I'm telling you she will change your life!
Look no further! Your curls will be well taken care of with Nikki. She is Deva Certified and amazing at what she does. I’m sure most of us have our horror stories when it comes to finding someone to style our hair…being new to the area I had put off getting a haircut as long as possible. In a matter of just a few minutes I knew I had found my new stylist in Nikki. She instinctually knows what to do, is fun to talk to and the end result is an awesome haircut. She really listens to what you want and obviously loves what she does. Book an appointment…you won’t be disappointed!
Omg, where do I begin?! I am and have always been a curly headed gurl, and rarely, if ever, let stylists touch my hair as I'm always afraid of having my hair butchered. But I felt I needed something new to my hair, so I reached out to Nikki. First off, she's very quick at responding. I sent her a few pics of my hair currently and sent a few that i was inspired by. I also explained that i wanted a full highlighting and she recommended some options. Meeting her cemented my love and appreciation of her. She is hilarious and so cool and chill! It was like getting your hair done by your best friend! She made sure that i was always aware of what she was doing, educating me on the products she was using, and brought my curls back to LIFE! If you're debating, I along with others say DON'T! she's gained a lifelong curl patron! Thanks Nikki!!
Nikki truly has a gift for cutting curly hair. I went from flat to fab!! My hair just sat on my head like a mop. I told Nikki that I wanted volume and she gave me the devacurl cut and added so much volume to my hair. I felt like a tv celebrity when she was done. I highly recommend Nikki to anyone looking for a life changing experience. It really has changed the way I feel about my hair. I love it!!! Thanks Nikki <3
This is by far the best hair cut I have ever had! My hair always looked kinda frizzy with a very uneven curl pattern. It is so bouncy and curly I love it!
She was very friendly and knowledgable. She transformed my lifeless curls into bouncy ringlets. Definitely the best haircut experience I've had in years!
Nikki really does work curl magic! Visited her for the first time today, and am so happy I found her on this website! I have had a Ouidad haircut before and liked it, but this Devacut was LOVE. Nikki does a wonderful job and takes her time to work your hair to curl perfection. Definitely give her a try.
My curls were frizzy and lifeless. Whenever I wore my hair down it would look like a Christmas Tree (which I hated) so I constantly wore my hair up. Nikki is GREAT! She not only gave life back into my curls, but I can now wear it down and without frizz! She educated me on proper care and styling techniques for my curls that have made me love wearing my hair down again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
I needed volume on my curls, they were really flat, I found Nikki on this website. I made an appointment had a consultation with her, I showed her a picture of how I wanted my hair. She did her thing, she gave me great results. I knew my curls had the potential and she made it happen. She really knows how to manage curly hair, I love my Deva cut, she did an amazing job!!!!!
Moved to Fort Worth and spent almost a year afraid to get my hair cut. Found Nikki just a week before family pictures. Hair = amazing! I thought my girl back in Phoenix was good, Nikki was blow my socks off good. Worth every penny! I don't know how many years it has been since I could just wear my hair down and it look great. I'm 37 and the high school girl at a drive through the other day poked her head out to tell me how much she liked my hair. What?!?! So many compliments. Book your appointment now.
I have had lots of haircuts and have had 4 other Deva stylists cut my hair and Nikki is by far the best curly Deva Cut stylists I have been to. She knows what she is doing. Go see her and she will change your life!!!!!
Nikki is an absolute professional who has mastered her craft! She is truly passionate about the proper care and styling of curly hair and she makes you feel proud of your hair. She is a true artist and I only wish I'd met her years ago.
Got a 15 min consultation; Nikki explained cost and long term goals, and pricing for maintenanceShe wasted no time, cheerful, and I loved the results. I got the Deva curl cut; I can already see how things will be easier in my morning hair routine. Grateful to find her!
Throughout my 45 years I have been to many salons and have experienced many good/bad stylist. Nobody has come close to making me feel confident and informed like Nicki Dearman-Lambert. She truly knows her stuff and has a very fun, unique way of sharing that knowledge with her clients. To watch her work is to see her passion and I will be a customer for life!
Nikki gave me the best haircut of my life. I've gone to her 3 times and it always looks great. Before I got my deva cut , I had frizzy, unmanageable waves with lots of dead ends. My hair is healthier than ever and I am much more confident in my appearance.
I decided to find someone who really understands my curly hair and knows how to cut it so it doesn't look like a pom pom ball. I stumbled across the Devacurl site and found Nikki. Not only have I found someone who cuts my hair so it looks great that day and the next day and the next day...no shock period of three to four days, but Nikki takes the time to explain what she is doing and then teaches you how to do it. She is patient and sweet and encouraging! Finding someone who can deal with my hair and teach me how to deal with it on a daily basis has been like getting a super great Christmas present! I appreciate Nikki's enthusiasm and professionalism, but I really appreciate how she has made me love my hair!
Absolutely amazing cut and color! Works miracles on hair!
I have been to multiple curly hair specialists in the area (including other Deva Curl stylists) and Nikki is the only one I have wanted to go back to. This is the first time I have had multiple visits with a stylist since high school (when I straightened my hair and didn't know any better!). I have frequently had stylists who end up cutting my hair too short even though I want to keep it long. Nikki knows exactly how to get my curls beautiful, healthy and bouncy while keeping the overall length! I now refuse to get my hair cut by anyone else.
My hair looks awesome now! Nikki did an amazing job! My hair looked frizzy and drab before, but now it looks better than it ever has before! It looks like someone fixed it for hours with the perfect curling iron. I can't believe these are my natural curls!
Nikki is the best hairdresser I have ever been to! She knows curly hair and has a way of making the perfect suggestions. She is friendly, thoughtful, and a real professional. She wants her clients to go home and be able to get the same results styling their hair as when she styles it. You will not regret giving her a try and you will never want to go elsewhere!
I had truly given up on my hair and my curls. I felt awful even if I looked great everywhere else. I told Nikki what my issues were and what I wanted my hair to do, if possible. I gave her complete reign over my hair. I was not dissapointed. She kept a lot of length, which I was willing to sacrifice for my curls to come back, and I look great. I feel awesome and my hair is now awesome. She is very much worth every penny I spent. She even recut my hair after styling it in order to complete my look. She's awesome and isn't just going to cut your hair, she will listen to you and make what you want happen. Loving my low maintenance tangle free hair!
I had given up on getting professional haircuts after my first two experiences until a friend came to work raving about Nikki. I took a chance and so glad I did. I'm African-American and was a little scared and skeptical but she is absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable about curls of all kinds. She taught me how to style, develop a daily routine, and overall just love and appreciate my curls. I even took my sister in for a cut. This is where we'll be going from now on!
Nikki did a miracle on my hair. I had no idea I could get curls like the ones I have now(wish I could upload a pic!) My hair was so dull, dried and just...blahhh! But now it's so bouncy, and it looks and feels healthy! I'm so happy I came across Nikki, she is the best stylist I've come across!
I have never had so much fun at a hair appointment in my life! Nikki is so friendly and welcoming; the appointment didn't feel awkward at all! And my hair! It's never looked so good. I'm so glad I found Nikki! I have finally found my go-to stylist!
This was my first time going to Nikki and I was looking for a curly stylist close to where I live and she was the first one that popped up! She knew exactly what my hair needed and was super helpful in educating me on what I can do to get the best curls for my hair! So sweet and easy to talk to! When she was done I was amazed at what my curls could look like! And it's so doable for everyday wear! Loved every minute of the appointment and I will definitely be coming back!
Nikki is an awesome stylist. After 3 visits, I am always pleased with my cut and color. She is delightful to talk with also! Nikki gives you great tips and explains how to style and care for your hair. I highly recommend Nikki to curly girls.
I had my first appointment with Nikki and I instantly was impressed! All of the tips and advice she has really comes in handy! If you have any questions she will answer them exquisitely! She gave me some insight on what products I should use and a step by step of how to wash, style, and ultimately live with curly hair. She made my hair look new, gorgeous, and even better, healthy. She specializes in curly hair and with having curly hair herself, she understands the struggle we have. She changed my hair for the better and I will definitely go back.
I've been using diva curl products and stylist for a few years now and love it! While on a recent trip to visit my mom in Texas she decided to treat me to a long overdue hair cut. I looked up Nikki and decided to give her a try. She fit me into her schedule the very next day and I'm so glad she did! This is by far the best "diva" cut I have ever had!! This girl knows her curls!!! And for the added bonus, she has the best personality and spirit of anyone I have met of recent! She took her time and made sure my hair was perfect before leaving. I would fly back to Texas for all of my future haircuts to be with Nikki if I could afford it.... she is truly the greatest!!
Being a curly haired girl I had had my run ins with bad haircuts thru out the years, however, I had eventually found a stylist that did a 'decent' job in my area. It wasn't until I found out about the devacurl world thru social media that I knew I had to have a devacut and I knew I had to find a stylist near me. I made a trip of it and drove 6 hours from the Texas panhandle to Fort Worth for my appt. I had an awesome time with Nikki, and now that I have experienced a devacut there is no other way I will have my hair cut now! She was amazing and was very knowledgeable and super sweet and easy going. She asked me a series of questions to try and get to know me, which in turn helped her give me a cut which fit my lifestyle and bring out my personality thru my hair! She walked me thru washing my hair, what products to use, and how to style it. I never thought all these little tips she gave would make such a difference but the end results was that I was blown away by my haircut and my curls! My hair looked like it had never had before, just beautiful. She gave my hair such life, and it gave me so much confidence. I had grown to like my hair over the years, but now I am in love!! I have received so many compliments on my hair now. Thanks devacurl and Nikki for yalls dedication to us curly haired women.. I highly recommend their products and the devacut! Make an appt to see Nikki asap, you won't me disappointed. I'll definitely be seeing her again soon!!
In the past, I have had bad experiences with stylists cutting my hair. I would leave the salon with my hair looking “jacked.” So because of those bad experiences, I had gone a few years without getting my hair cut. I would try to go through my hair and trim it on my own. Well, I had gotten to the point where I needed a real cut. My hair had no shape. I started searching on the Deva Curl website and came across Nikki’s name. The description on her profile is what prompted me to email her. In the email, I asked her if she had experience in working with ethnic hair. She immediately wrote me back and told me to call her so that I could ask her all the questions I wanted. To my surprise, Nikki was a delight to talk to. First, I told her that I was African American and that my hair texture consisted of very tight curls. I then provided her with a history of my hair, the current state that it was in, and what I wanted to gain out of a hair appointment. Nikki actually listened and asked follow up questions about my hair. She suggested that I send her pictures of my hair in its current state and to send her pictures of what I eventually wanted the result of my hair to look like. To me, this was important because it let me know that she wanted to understand my hair so that she would know the proper plan of attack…lol. After talking to Nikki, I felt at ease about going to her to get my hair cut. I forgot to mention that I am from out of town, so I was actually traveling 2 ½ hours to get my hair cut.On the day of the appointment, Nikki gave me a cheery welcome. She looked at my hair, explained what she was going to do, and went to work on it. She wasn’t shy about working on my hair at all. She went through my hair cutting it with ease and control. In the end, I was very happy with my hair cut because it finally had a shape. I plan on returning to Nikki for my next trim. She’s easy to talk to and has a fun personality!
Finding Nikki has changed my hair FOR THE BETTER! She has taken the time and courses to achieve academic milestones for those with curly hair. I found her last year and haven't gone to anyone since. Check her out, you won't regret it! I love my curly hair now that I know how to manage it, thanks to her explanations and cutting/styling techniques!
This was my first time at Nikki's salon, and my next appointment is already scheduled. I've never been able to do this because I've never found a stylist that I would go back to for even a trim!! Nikki is extremely knowledgable about curly hair. She showed me exactly what she would recommend cutting off and explained why. She also explained the styling process with me so that I could duplicate the style with the products she used if I chose to. Nikki is very passionate about her profession and it shows. There's no doubt in my mind Nikki can cut any texture of hair!! I love my hair!! Thank you Nikki!!
I've been to Nikki twice now for a deva cut and she has been great. Not only does she excel in cutting/styling curly hair, she has a lot of knowledge and eager to share it in a way anyone would be able to understand. You can tell that she really knows and enjoys what she does and loves to share with all her clients. If you have curly hair that you're not satisfied with, please seek her out. You won't be sorry!
