Got my curls back!

Rating
by Estefany S on MAY 20, 2017

I am beyond happy with my curly cut by Lara! She was able to accommodate me on a days notice because I was in town for only the weekend and hadn't planned on getting a cut, but decided to on a whim. (I reeeeally needed one!) she took her time, and thouroughly explained each step in the process. She answered all the questions I had about my hair and also showed me how to properly use every devacurl product I had been using at home to style my curls. My hair went from looking like a triangular pack of dry noodles to springy/bouncy and curly with just the cut! AMAZING! Then once she added the styling product it got even better. She was also very welcoming and easy to talk to which is always a plus. Nothing about the appointment felt stiff or awkward. I haven't loved a hair cut this much ever! I'm excited to continue on my healthy curl journey because of my experience at her salon and will definitley be making the 6 hour drive to get a cut with her again!

IN LOVE WITH MY HAIR!!!! <3

I have to admit I was excited yet so nervous to allow Lara to cut my hair because I've been deceived so many times by so many people who claim they know how to work on curly hair and actually don't. However, knowing that she has been a long term DevaCurl stylist, something in my gut told me to trust her and I'm so happy that I did! I have 3c THICK curly hair, I'm half white/black, and got the DevaCut (layers while still maintaining length). I absolutely LOVE my hair now, it has so much volume, all my split ends are gone, and I can do so many cut styles with it now! It's going to grow out so amazing! She also educates you on how to take care of your curls if you already don't know how and explains every little thing she does to your hair as well as what she puts in it! I recommend Lara's service to anyone with ANY kind of curly hair! Take it from someone who's been lied to, too many times lol! Lara is amazing! P.S if you haven't found a great cleanser or shampoo for you hair yet, you should totally give the DevaCurl No Poo a try! I have really bad dandruff and my hair HATES any kind of shampoo even if its all natural.. But my hair/scalp loves this stuff!

Fantastic!

I have been to other Deva stylists and always liked the results, but Lara is something special. She gave me a great cut and showed me a new way to pin it that maximized the volume and curl. Plus, she is incredibly nice. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Great results from Lara

I have curly/wavy hair and have had many bad haircuts and some good ones but no one who completely got understood curly hair and had the products to make it come out great every time. I spend less time on my hair than ever with great results. Lara knows her craft and is so informative. I'm really liking the DevaCurl products, too. Lara's a win, win, win!

Life-Changing, Not Even Exaggerating

I have wavy, rather unspectacular hair that I don't think to categorize as "curly." As such, I've never had a curly cut before. I stuck with long layers for years!! A few months ago, my hair had been severely damaged by bleaching/coloring and I had to crop it to my shoulders. From a bad experience in middle school, I knew the wrong cut would give me pyramid hair. Super unflattering. I NEEDED an expert!! After some online research, I found the DevaCurl salon finder. Honestly, it was the prior reviews Lara had that pushed me to see her. Throughout the process of cutting and styling my hair, Lara explained every step in great detail. She covered what products would help keep my curls hydrated and hold their spring! Her dedication to learning about all hair types makes her a master of the craft. Plus, she is incredibly personable and fun to talk to. It has been hard to replicate her salon style (no surprise), but I'm learning. My hair has never been healthier and I am truly satisfied and happy that I saw Lara!

It takes a curl artist!

Lara has an eye for curls! I have been to other Deva Curl stylists, and I would always go home and do some more shaping with my scissors. Which is fine. But I no longer do that with Lara. Plus (bonus) she is a stand up comic. Time with her is a hoot. I love being a curly girl, and Lara makes it effortless and fun. I feel so lucky I found her!

Fabulous!! A+

I've struggled over the years with bad cuts, colors, and my curls always seem to be too big and frizzy or flat and damaged. I heard about Lara from a friend who came into work one morning with curls I didn't even know she had. I was able to get an appointment fast! She listened to my past hair problems and taught me how a curly girl cut is different from just a regular cut. My grey used to get missed in places or fade easy with other stylists. After Lara started doing it I get stopped and told how amazing my color and my curls are all the time! She gave me so much knowledge while showing me the deva curl steps. I love my hair now!!!

Fabulous!!

Went to Lara Slater salon today and my hair has never looked so good. Lara listened to me explain my lifestyle and how I want my hair to look. She gave great advice, and took her time explaining how to use the different products as she used them. The only sad part of this is I'm on vacation and don't leave near here to see her again. I highly recommend anyone who wants a true curly transformation to see Lara.

First Time Deva Cut!

Seeing Lara and having her give me my first Devacut was the best decision I've made this year (no exaggeration). She was extremely personable and inviting, the studio she works out of it super cute and Lara's skills are impeccable! She described everything she was doing with each step, and why. She recommended certain products that would work best with my curls, as well as styling techniques (which is a huge help for a new curly girl). So happy to have done my research and made the appointment with Lara, can't wait to see her again!

Loving my waves and curl!

For those with curly or wavy hair who have struggled with a stylist understanding how to cut your hair, Lara is the best. So thankful to have found her! My hair is SWavy and I can style it so many ways with this great cut. She also is very helpful to train you on the best Devacurl products for your hair.

A curly head needs a stylist that understands curly hair, Lara does!! Love my curly locks and look! She also gave me valuable tips and how to use my DevaCurl products the correct way. I’ve not been maximizing mine.

I'm so glad to have found Lara! She is truly an expert at cutting, styling & coloring curly hair! Her prices are reasonable and she's very accommodating to the best of her ability. I have been wearing my hair curly for several years now, so I am very knowledgeable with Devacurl products, but if you need to know what works best with your curls, Lara is the expert. I have also noticed that not all salons can color my hair without leaving it looking dry for weeks, now when I have my highlights done my hair looks amazing. I will continue to go to Lara!

The full treatment!!

I'm at a loss for words. I'm 35 years old and this is hands down the best salon experience I've ever had. Lara's knowledge is extensive in pinpointing hair type, curl type, and curl care routine. I'm visiting from WI and it looks like my stylist is now in Scottsdale.

She's amazing!

I haven't got my hair cut in about 3 years, because most stylists don't know how to correctly handle curly hair.. With that being said I didn't trust anybody with my hair until Lara. She is amazing! I went all the way to Scottsdale to see her & was so nervous, but she did an amazing job with my hair! My Devacut is beautiful & she taught me a lot on how to cleanse, condition, & style my curls. Mycurls are more defined & bouncy. My hair isn't flat on top anymore. My hair is even now, but still sooo long. She is the only person who will be touching my hair from now on. I absolutely love her!

Curly is back

This was my first appointment with Lara and I will be back. I love my curls now but hated them before I met Lara. She taught me how to embrace the demon curls with the cut and after care. I would recommend her to anyone that has the curly hair that I do or to anyone who needs a great stylist

Love my new DevaCurl hair!

I was due for a haircut and decided to try a DevaCurl cut to give shape to my newly revitalized curls thanks to DevaCurl products. Normally, I only see a stylist who was referred to me, but thanks to the great reviews on Lara, I had to give her a try. She is everything they shared and more! Lara is an experienced professional and listens to her clients. She provided guidance on how to care for my hair with the products and have great results. She also has a fun personality and is sweet as can be! When she finished with the cut and style, I couldn’t believe it was my hair! Love Lara and love my hair! I’m looking forward to my next visit!

Great curly experience

Lara was amazing. She did such a beautiful curly cut on my out of control curls. And she tamed them they way I like. She made them look naturally beautiful versus product plastered to my head. Loved it! My curls are sweet and soft and not crunchy and clumped together. She made me love my curls today!!!

Amazing - talented

Lara is an awesome curly hair stylist. In addition she is a very talented hair dresser with a fun personality. I wanted to go from dark hair to gray with the dreaded line. She was able to get rid of my dark hair a weave in a transition between my roots and the rest of my hair without hair damage. Truly amazing!

The BEST

I have been doing the Deva system for many years and Lara is the 3rd Deva stylist I've been to. She is hands down the best. I still learn new things when I go in!! I'm so glad a friend referred me!! Her cuts and color are excellent and well priced. Thank you Lara!!

Lara is awesome! I was late to my appointment due to unforseen circumstances and she was so nice and understanding about it, she didn't rush through the appointment at all! She understood exactly what I wanted (didn't even have to show her pictures) and I'm absolutely in love with my cut! I have been using Devacurl products for a few years now, and I read the book, but Lara still taught me great styling tips that I had no idea about. And they were easy to duplicate at home. Such a great experience, will definitely be back!

Fantastic!

Just had my first deva cut with Lara. She is terrific and not to mention extremely nice. I've been to the curly hair competitor as well as stylists who claim they know curly hair and really don't. I will definitely be back to continue with the deva cut. Lara is very knowledgable and makes sure you understand how to use the products for maximum benefit. She also did my color and that was awesome as well. She spends time with you, doesn't rush, and isn't pushy on trying to sell you product. So glad I made the switch!

Love my new hair!

My first visit will result in many, many more! The color is just perfect, and I absolutely love my new curls. I was so excited for my first Deva cut, and was just as excited to leave and show off what Lara created. Lara was so patient in explaining the products and how to style my new look, and with answering all of my questions. I really just can't believe the difference!

Just had my second haircut with Lara. Until 6 months ago I spent my adult life fighting the "curl". Decided to go with Mother Nature and read up on curly girl hair. This led me to Devacurl and then to Lara. I now have good hair days. Lara is knowledgeable and pleasant. She also gave me a wonderful tip. I thought I was developing male pattern balding; she explained what my problem really was about and gave me instructions on how to deal with it. It works.

I have naturally curly hair and have never found someone to help me to wear it curly. I went to see Lara and she was a pro. I wanted to wear my hair curly and straight. She gave me such a beautiful cut. I am getting lots of compliments on my hair which I haven't for a long time. She spent so much time teaching me how to work with my hair and she literally cut small pieces at a time to get it right. I am so grateful to have found her. Besides being very good at her craft she is a great woman and a pleasure to spend time with which is a bonus. I will be coming back to her. It has been a long time since I could say that. I would also highly recommend her.

I couldn't be happier!

I've had a couple different Deva stylists cut my hair, and Lara has been the best. I don't think you'll find anyone more skilled to cut your hair, or more knowledgeable about curly hair and Deva products. And she is so generous in sharing what she knows and working with you to make your hair look its best.

Lara was great! Explained everything to me in a way I could understand, and gave me great tips on styling that I hadn't heard of. She sells the devacurl products cheaper than amazon, I bought everything we used. Lots of fun, ask to see her mullet book!

I had the same stylist for 15 years - stayed with him even when I moved across the country. I got in a pinch, needed a haircut, wanted to start getting my hair curly/dry cut and tried a new to me guy (on this website with mixed reviews) and was devastated (1 month before my wedding!). I bounced around to a few other deva curl recommendations on this site before finding Laura. She listened to my entire hair history and concerns with new to me stylists and gave me the best deva curly cut and experience I could have hoped for. I will definite return and definitely recommend laura
