Excited to get my hair cut again!

It had been over 4 years since I had had a professional hair cut because I was so traumatized by terrible haircuts with people who don't understand curly hair. I was terrified to make and go to the appointment with Dianne, but her Level 3 experience and 5 star reviews allowed me to set my fear aside. I am so glad I did! Dianne gave me the best haircut I've had in over 20 years. Although I'm still learning the products and new ways to style, it seems that no matter how bad I "screw it up" it still looks great. I can finally look forward to a haircut, with full confidence that Dianne knows what she is doing. Thank you for the great new style....I'm looking forward to working together in the future!

After a decade of struggling with my daughter's hair...

Dianne is a curl scientist who is obsessed with the science and the art of curly hair. As someone who has straight hair and somehow birthed a curly girl, her information is invaluable! If you are looking for life changing curl information and an understanding of how curly hair works , Diane is your stylist. It took me a decade to find Diane and I would travel the earth to have her cut my daughter's hair. She is a master curl stylist and Lord knows I have tried every single stylist and harassed curly girls on the street in an effort to find a stylist who understands the art of the curl. Diane's knowledge and compassion is truly priceless.

Game Changer!

I was a little nervous coming into my appointment but the moment I sat in the chair I knew I was in good hands. Dianne is knowledgeable, patient and funny! In the past year I made the decision to embrace my curls though I was still straightening my hair on occasion I knew getting a devacut would be the final step in embracing my curls 100% I did a lot of research and found Dianne and I am so happy I did. Never in my life have I left a salon with my curls and been happy with how it looked (typically it was soaking wet because the stylist had another client waiting or it was insanely frizzy from the stylist quickly trying to blowdry it) so I’d run home wash my hair and style it myself before i knew if I liked my cut. With Dianne I left with gorgeous curls and the biggest smile on my face. She listened to what I wanted and made sure I was comfortable vocalizing if I thought my bangs needed to be shorter or thicker etc. At times she would stop mid sentence and fall silent in thought then would quickly explain why she was quiet (learning/ anticipating your curls!) then pick up in conversation. I feel like she has been misunderstood in the past for this which is a shame. Cutting hair isn’t easy. Cutting curls is even harder and I appreciated the moments she took to concentrate. Overall I recommend Dianne and trust her completely with my hair. I have never loved my curls until she cut my hair. From one curly girl to another: do yourself a favor and invest in yourself. You will not regret it.
