I’m a biracial woman (black & Hispanic) with kinky curly hair. I take very good care of my curls and was on a search for a hairdresser who could give me some soft highlights without doing too much damage to my natural curl pattern. Hopeful that I could get it done a few weeks before my trip to Indonesia, I found Monica at A&M Salon on the Deva Curl site and felt confident that she could do the job; the site is highly reputable and it showed that she had advance certification in curly hair and coloring. This was far from the case. Monica was congenial, witty and funny. She mentioned several times throughout my appointment that she may have overbooked, but couldn’t check or cancel her clients because she left her appointment book at home that day. Throughout the appointment I could sense that she was on edge and rushing. By the end of my session, she had three other women either partially started or waiting to begin their hair appointment… did I mention this is a one-woman salon? As she was finishing up and I was checking my hair, I could see that the crown of my head was over-highlighted, while the middle of my head continued to be at least three shades darker with the ends highlighted. In other words, I looked like a damn spotted-leopard. Since she was rushing to tend to her other clients and I was secretly hoping the color would adjust over time, I left with my new leopard-print hair, hoping it would subside overtime. It didn’t. I had my boyfriend and my best friends verify that I wasn’t crazy and my hair was over / under processed. It was. And it was painfully obvious. I texted Monica a few days later and she texted me back simply saying that I may need another toner. She was kind enough to try and see me before my trip but ultimately, I had decided not to risk another botched dye job that would end with more damage to my hair. Sooo I went to Bali lookin like a leopard. I’m sure Monica is great with curly hair cuts and Deva Curl styling but I would not recommend her for coloring. Since curly hair is prone to damage, I have to wait a few months before being seen by a true curly hair professional in LA for a color correction. Avoid.


LOVE MY HAIR!!

Monica has been doing my hair for two years now and I refuse to go to anyone else. I live almost two hours away from her salon but it’s worth the drive to know that she will never let me down. Not only does she color my hair exactly the way I like it but the cut is perfect too!! And last but not least she has helped me learn how do deal with the curls that have appeared since I hit 40. She won’t let you down!!


Not for people who already like their hair

I'd like to start by saying that I'm sure the stylist does great work. The person who was there before me left looking great. But that person was new to keeping her hair natural and needed a lot of guidance. On the other hand I have been using deva curl and wearing my hair natural for years. I told her what I did day to day and she told me it was all wrong, and sold me up on new products. When I got home and looked in the mirror I started crying. She had somehow made my tight corkscrew curls much larger. Still curly but a lot less so than before. I washed my hair the next day and it looked better but it didn't start looking good unit I abandoned all her advice. I'm sure if you have no clue what to do with your curly hair she's great but if you already have hair you love stay away.
