Stylists at this salon
The best experience I’ve had with a hair stylist. Love my haircut! Feel sassy again🎉. Doug is very skilled; down to earth and a great educator! I learned more about my hair with him than with all other stylists combined. He’s a gem!!
This is my second visit with Doug. He and I have good conversation while he cuts and shapes my loose curly hair. Doug is extremely knowledgeable in the subject of curly hair. I have never met a stylist who specializes in curly hair. Its a rarity. Curly hair is not straight hair and he knows his stuff. My hair doesn't just look great after I leave the salon but his cut makes me looking and feeing 10 years younger and allows my curls to look their best ALL the time. If you want and need a good cut, Doug's your guy.
This was my first curly hair cut and I couldn't be happier that Doug was my stylist. He did an incredible job! I love the cut and shape, and my curls actually had definition. There's so much information out there about curly hair and Doug is so knowledgeable and helped clear the clutter and give me the information I needed to properly care and style my hair. He patiently answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable. If your looking for someone to cut your hair, he is your guy!
Doug really knows his stuff. Using deva products, he brought back some of my natural curls/waves that I thought I lost for good due to bleaching. The cut looks great, even after washing and drying on my own. Doug is clearly super talented with curly hair and has a great personality! It's been a long time since I genuinely liked how my hair looked.
GREAT WITH CURLS
This was my second time going to a salon, Doug had a bunch of knowledge that I was lacking, He taught me a lot of things i am really glad i needed to know; things you should really listen too. I came in with a desired length but that did not work out for me and after all I saw what he was saying and i just let him do this job and cut my hair and I LOVE IT!!! He is the only person i will trust with my hair now and I can't wait to see how pretty my curls will grow out and the hair transformation i will experience. Go to him, he can turn your hay strands into actual hair. lol
Studio 138 restored my curls and confidence in curls
Doug at Studio 138 brought my curls to life. He patiently educated me on curls, moisturizing my curls, proper shampooing and my favorite tool, the spray bottle with conditioner and water. He takes great care of my locks and I have a new appreciation for curly. Thanks Doug.
Naturally Curly Expert
Doug knows all about how to cut and take care of your curls. He takes time to educate you and talk about any concerns. He's all about embracing your curls, so if you're trying to smother them or stamp them out, Doug's not your guy. I've been embracing my natural curls for 6 years now, and Doug did a great job! As a bonus, he's super nice, reasonably priced, and sells the all the products you need. Thank goodness for Doug! It was worth the drive.
Expertise to say the Least!
Doug takes his time to study your hair, talk with you about what you want it to look like, and expertly scissors every strand. I always leave feeling as though my hair has been updated so my look stays current and fresh. I've had a difficult time finding a stylist who really knows how to deal with wavy or curly hair. I'm grateful this studio is open and Doug really cares about his clients. Bravo!
If you are afraid of hair cuts, this is your stylist!
If you are a curly girl that is absolutely afraid of getting your hair cut, I want to assure you that you are in good hands with Doug. I was that curly girl, that went years without trims because of my fear of stylists, however this backfired when I was in the process of growing out my hair, and I went about two years without any trims. My hair was very choppy and the ends were very dry and split. As a result of the damage, my hair had become very porous and really damaged(so much so that I could no longer wear it down). It was at that point that I decided that I needed to confront my fear, and look for a stylist that could properly fix the shape and trim my damaged ends. When I went to Doug and I explained my fears to him, he was very understanding and he took all the measures he could to make me feel comfortable about getting my hair cut. In fact, he made me hold a mirror so I could see everything he was doing, and as he was cutting, he talked me through the entire cut, explaining exactly why he was cutting certain parts of my hair. Overall, Doug has an immense knowledge about curly hair(I have been on the curly girl method for about 8 years and I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about the Deva concepts, but I still learned new things). The cut turned out amazing and I finally have my healthy, bouncy curls back. Its such a relief to know that there is a stylist out there that understands how to cut my hair. If you are still hesitant about getting your hair cut, go see Doug now! I'm sure that you will not regret it.
Love my haircut!
This was my first haircut with Doug and it was a great experience. I had grown out my wavy hair until I could no longer tolerate it. I knew going in I wanted short and a touch edgy. Doug listened, looked at a few photos for my ideas and I was on my way! Doug is so knowledgeable and passionate about his trade. He gives great advice and is not preachy or judgmental. He has vast knowledge about other subjects and is really fun to talk to. He really took his time and I love the end result.
I am your typical curly-haired woman: I go months to years without haircuts because I've had so many bad ones. When I went to see Doug, I was in the process of growing out yet another bad cut. I was a little nervous. First, Doug is super cool. So easy going and easy to talk to. Second, he gave me an awesome consult, and talked me through everything...from the cut, to the products, to "at-home" recommendations. I left there feeling like a new person. Seriously. The beautiful cut he gave me was exactly what I wanted. I feel like it gave me a boost of confidence. I haven't had so many compliments about a haircut ever! Doug is talented, thorough and so passionate about hair. If you are looking for a stylist that will be totally honest with you about what will/won't work for your hair, products and advice, call Doug ASAP. You definitely won't be disappointed!!
If you are here reading these reviews because you are looking for a Deva certified stylist, congratulations- you have found your guy! I've been coming to Doug for some time & he really knows curly hair. He takes his time to properly cut/trim your hair, with great care. Total TLC for the curls! But what I love about Doug's work is that he is completely honest with you about your hair and the shape your curls are in, and he provides a solution. He is also honest about what length will be flattering as well. Doug's knowledge of Deva products is superb, and he explains to you how to successfully apply product to show off your curls. That's another point I would like to add: Deva Curl is the leader in cuts and products for curls for good reason- it is the absolute best and healthiest for your curls! DON'T ever trust a hair stylist- who is not Deva Certified and says "Oh ya, I can definitely cut curly hair!" You will absolutely regret it! And if you are curious about the products: I use the No-Poo (shampoo), One Condition (love, love, love!) and the light weight gel- also amazing. It's worth every penny! Bottom line : Go schedule your appointment with Doug! You won't regret it!
Doug has been taking care of my color and curls for a couple of years. He takes his time to educate you along the way. Each visit I leave with great color, cut and style. I live about 15 miles away and it absolutely is worth the drive.
GO SEE DOUG!!! For REAL!
If you are looking for a legitimate, talented, cool, and super knowledgeable curly hair specialist, Doug is your guy. I have been going to see him for about a year now and I am so happy I found his salon. On my first visit he gave me a complete rundown on my hair and curl type and tips to maintain it that I can actually use. I have never left his salon feeling anything other than COMPLETELY happy with my cut. He is very honest and works with you to create exactly the look you want. I was scared to go short before I met Doug and now he is seeing me (successfully) through my curly mo-hawk phase. There will be no more bad hair days once you start going to see Doug. And that is on the real. Peace!
