Why did I wait so long to go!
For several years I had heard great things about Luvena, but since I moved about an hour away from New Haven had not brought myself to book. So glad I finally did!!! She was able to bring life to my Latin curls without impacting the length. I also requested an auburn color and she nailed it! I highly recommend Luvena.
She made me realize my curls are beautiful
For years, I looked for a salon that specialized in curly hair. I was unsuccessful until two curly-haired friends recommended Luvena. At first I was skeptical because it was almost too good to be true, you know? I never heard of a salon that caters to curls and is knowledgeable about curls so I decided to do my research. I looked on Luvena's website, Facebook, and Instagram to see the work she has done and I was beyond impressed. I made my appointment right away and went! The service was wonderful and I cannot thank Luvena enough for making me embrace my curls. I have never loved my curls more than after that appointment. I felt like tearing up (not joking) because she made every single curl POP. I now know that my curls are BEAUTIFUL, something I would not have realized without Luvena's help. I will definitely be back and back and back!
By far "THE BEST" hair cut I have ever gotten!!!
From the moment you walk in the door you feel welcomed...By far "The Best" hair cut I have ever gotten!!! They took their time with attention to detail-so glad I went. Worth the drive from Southington Ct-Not everyone knows how to handle "The Curls"...will defiantly be going back.
After having two kids, I’ve been struggling to get my curls back. I’ve researched many salons and decided to try Luvena’s. She took her time to get know my curl crisis. She did an AMAZING job. She did not push any products but did answer all my questions. My curls have not looked this good in years. I HIGHLY recommend her!
I just went in for a trim and afterwards my curls looked so much more healthy and defined! the price was also affordable I will definitely be going back.
I called the salon very last minute hoping to get in that same day, and Luvena was able to squeeze me in for her last appointment of the day. Everyone at the salon is very personable and my cut was exactly what I wanted. I plan on bringing my daughter in with me next time!
Not for me
I went to Luvena Leslie to style my natural 4a hair. I was not impressed at all. I even called her after the appointment to discuss, but have yet to receive a response.
Fabulous Job with Super Curly Hair
My journey to Luvena was truly a cosmic alignment. I live in Charlotte NC and Googled Curly Hair Salons Charlotte. Luvena's salon came up immediately. After perusing the website and her social media pages, which all looked FABULOUS, I decided to schedule. She got me in for that Thursday and I was so excited. She then sent me the address and my heart sank!! Oh no!!! Connecticut?! How did I miss that?! Since Luvena did her training in Charlotte NC she comes up in a Google search for Charlotte. I thought all was lost until I remembered I had a flight booked to NYC a month later. I emailed her back explaining the mixup. She was so understanding and told me that she has clients that take the train to her from NYC. Yay!!! So I scheduled during my trip and rode the Metro North Train to New Haven. After grabbing a coffee I took a $9 uber to her shop. I was warmly greeted by Luvena. The shop was clean and tidy with plenty of products for sale. Before she ever took out the scissors she consulted with me and examined my hair and answered all of my questions. She carefully went curl by curl snipping with great care and attention. She then no-poo'd, conditioned, detangled and styled by hair wet and placed me under the dryer. My hair came out absolutely AMAZING. The definition, body, softness and shine of my hair was unparalleled. All weekend I got tons of compliments!! Even now after a crazy weekend--2-hour train ride, 12-hour road trip, more rain and a 2 hour flight and not to mention sleeping--my curls are perfectly frizz-free, soft and moisturized. Luvena has got the skills and sweet personality to boot. She makes you feel comfortable and patiently answers all your questions. She even went above and beyond and promptly emailed me the regimen with all products used post-visit with pictures upon request. I will be visiting whenever I'm in NYC and referring everyone I know nearby to Luvena!!
Wonderful Job with 4-year-old
My four-year-old really needed a cut by someone experienced with curly hair after another stylist butchered her hair. Luvena was fabulous with my daughter, chatting with her the whole time, and making her feel comfortable. Luvena managed to even out her hair and give it a really nice shape without needing to lose nearly as much length as I expected. We were very pleased and will definitely be back.
Won't go back
I went to Luvena Leslie for a deva cut and left with hair that was a good three inches shorter on one side than on the other and chunks were hacked out all over the place. It was so bad I had to find another stylist within the week and have it re-cut (and it had to be cut extremely short to get rid of the mess). Horribly disappointed and will never go back.
