Wouldn't recommend for a DevaCut

Erin |August 28, 2020

Service Received: DevaCut

Price: $50

I should have read the previous reviews. I recently moved to the area, and chose this salon because they did DevaCuts. I'm white and have 3b/4a curls. I've had DevaCuts from 3 different stylists in the past, and have been pleased. When I got to the salon, they said they didn't have any Deva products, which I was ok with because I'm not a huge fan of Deva products anyway, but all of the other salons I've been to that were serious about DevaCuts sold DevaCurl products. While everyone was nice, the cut was really not great. I thought it kind of strange that chelsea kept saying too, "if you're not happy for any reason, come back and we can fix it." I wasn't letting on that I didn't like the cut during the time. During the visit, I thought it was going to be ok. It wasn't until I got home and it fully dried that I realized the shape wasn't good and my bangs were too short. I'm now in search of another salon here.

Avoid like the plague

Back when I had relaxed hair I went here and was told "we don't really DO ethnic hair" then told me how my texture isn't what his girls there are used to working with and gave me a post-it note referring me to Raven Salon and Nu Twist. If they can't handle texture they probably shouldn't be recommended here.

I went to the salon with HIGH EXPECTATIONS!!! I got a haircut with NO SHAPE! She dry cut my hair but she literally just gave me a blunt cut with NO LAYERS! My hair has never looked so unflattering in my life. Then the best part was when she dried my hair with a non-micro-fiver towel, then she proceeded to diffuse my hair WITH THE HEAT ON HIGH!!! She even applied a product to my hair that has sulfates!! (It's supposed to prevent frizz..yeah right!) Lastly....I left the salon with wet hair in cold weather. I'm never going back again. PS: I'm currently making plans to get another haircut due to the fact that I'm deeply depressed with how triangular my hair looks...
