Best stylist I've ever had!
Professional, listens, caring, gentle, amazing person!
My first devacut
I went to Christopher because I was looking for a stylist that specialized in cutting curly hair. He is so professional and caring! He listened to what I wanted then took his time on doing my devacut! I'm so pleased the way it turned out and as a bonus total strangers came up to me and told me how beautiful my is.
Unable to make appt
I attempted to make an appt w/Christopher as a new client for a Deva cut in 8 wks (based on when I am due for my next haircut). I use Devacurl products and have had a deva cut, so when I was informed a consult before cut was required I did not have an issue with this. However, the cut can not be scheduled on the same day and they will not schedule you for a cut until the consult. Therefore you have to wait for Christopher to see you and then he will schedule you another appt dependent on his scheduling at that time—which I was told they “try” to get you in a couple of weeks after consult. I stopped by the salon to discuss this and was told “that is how Christopher does it” and was offered no other assistance. So, either the scheduler didn’t want to address my concerns or Christopher is very particular in how he does things which means the whole process is not client friendly nor convienant. It was implied that he can do this based on his having such a large clientele. Needless to say, it wouldn’t have been a good fit for either party so I cancelled the appt and will go elsewhere...and share this with others.
Ok all my curly sisters! Here’s the scoop I love my curl and I only do Deva cuts . I have had a few and will forever be a Deva gurl. I luv Christopher, he was so very thoughtful about making sure my curls were treated with such care. He explained how to manage my curls and he made my curls look beautiful again !!! I’m sooo happy I found Christopher he explained in detail how to use the Deva product that was right for my hair... he is definitely the real deal !!! Fantastic Deva cut!!! Thank you,Christopher-you have a Deva loyal client forever!!!
Wonderful First-Time Experience!
As a first-timer getting a deva cut, I was nervous to say the least. As with most of us curly girls, we’ve done our research on the cut, the methods, the whole enchilada. I’d heard about warning signs and one thing I noticed was Christopher didn’t have a social media page showing his work. That worried me a bit. However, my fears quickly went right out the window the moment he sat me in his chair. He took charge (but not “pushy”), he listened and executed the cut very well. He’s NOT heavy handed when it comes to cutting. In fact I’d say he’s more of a preservationists. Which is definitely good, but I would’ve liked my layers slightly shorter. That’s OKAY because it turned out better than I envisioned it would. I didn’t look like a mamed animal walking out! Anyway, my main focus was the cut. I didn’t necessarily care about his wash/styling technique too much. He used all Deva curl products on my hair and he diffused on HOT which I don’t do at home but that’s okay, the finished style came out perfectly. Overall: best cut I’ve ever had. He’s super professional and listens. He will make suggestions but ultimately go with what you want. I’d recommend him to ANY curly girl. Don’t be put off by the fact that he’s not on social media. He’s experienced and knows his stuff.
CHRISTOPHER—Best Diva cut ever!
I had my haircut with Christopher for the first time three months ago. I am a professional who travels extensively for work. Over the years I have had my hair cut by many great, educated and creative stylist. I am currently doing a contract assignment in Overland Park. I went to the Diva curl website and looked at reviews. After reading all the good reviews on Christopher at Rumor’s Salon I decided to make an appointment. When I went in Christopher greeted me and was very professional. During our consultation he went into depth regarding how he would cut my coil curls. I am quite picky and it’s not easy to deal with coils if you are not educated to a high standard. I was very impressed with his knowledge of my hair type. I also have color which he did as well. At any rate, I have had my hair cut from New York to Tokyo. To my surprise (due to Overland Park being a small suburban town) this was the best haircut I have ever had. He was precise and the cut was very clean. My coil curls have never looked so healthy! Not only was the cut great but the styling and highlight were amazing! I am glad I decided not to wait. I will come back for my hair after my contract is finished. It’s worth the effort! Thank you Diva Curl for having a review site online. Kaia
Not a true DevaCut
Christopher was obviously trained and has the certificate to prove it, but that was about it. He did a nice dry cut, wash, then wet cut. One red flag was that he did not use devacurl or any devacurl techniques. It has now been a couple months and I am already looking for a new stylist. My hair is all the same length and my once coiled hair is now STRAIGHT! This would have been a better visit if he would have just given me a real devacut.
Best Hair Cut!
It has been a couple months since my haircut and I’d say it was the best haircut in such a long time for me. Christopher was fantastic! He asked questions how my hair was taken care of and styled. He also provided recommendations. At first, my intentions was a short haircut but I’m glad Christopher enlighten to say let’s cut this much and see what it looks like. This was my first devacut so it was nice to do this route and see how different my hair was afterwards. The only issue experienced was a couple long hairs afterward but this was not a big deal. Next time, I’ll probably go shorter for the summer but I’ll back to see Christopher!
What more can you say besides HAPPY!
I am happy, happy with both my Deva Curl haircut and color. I couldn't be more thrilled with the results. I don't know how else to say it but Christopher is the real deal. One of the most impressive things about the experience was that he had a 15 min. consultation with me the week before my appointment to talk about what I was wanting and to talk about what he thought about both haircut and color. As like most of us with curley hair, we have had our share of good and bad haircuts. I have now been back for my second appointment with Christopher and still very happy. He is a real expert with color which along with the excellent haircut means I will be a continuing customer. Many thanks for a great experience.
Where has Christopher been my whole life?!
Went to Christopher for my first Deva Curl experience. I was as apprehensive as can be--many people have claimed to know curly hair and screwed mine up big time. I did a consultation with him, loved his approach and he really put me at ease (without being pushy--thank God!). Followed through with the cut--and I have never been so happy with my hair!! He spent so much time cutting my hair and was so methodical and precise with every single curl. It transformed the shape of my hair in the best possible way. Such a thorough and perfect cut, has also caused each and every one of my curls to be absolutely perfectly defined...even on days 3-6 I still have nice ringlets and never did before! I use to stress over finding THE right product that would give me great frizz free curls. While I still do have some frizz (Christopher said that would always be the case, which I appreciated his honesty that there's no magic product), because my curls are defined and shaped SO well...I've found the product doesn't matter as much and my hair simply looks good WAY more often than before. It's all about the cut people! And for me (type 3b-c curl), Christopher absolutely nailed it!! So thankful to have found him! Highly highly highly recommend! And I was so skeptical!!
AMAZING With a Side of HAPPY TEARS!
I drove 3 1/2 hours from Oklahoma for an appointment with Christopher for my first Deva Cut. I sat in the chair with blind faith and told him that I was hoping for more volume and an overall shape & style that I currently didn't have. I explained to him that I felt like I had "holes" in my current cut from the shrinkage of my hair and he agreed that he could see what I was talking about. It was AMAZING to watch Christopher work his magic on my hair and the transformation take place!! He was great about talking me through the process during the cut and when he said he was done with the cut he told me to flip my hair and when I brought my head back up it was INSTANT volume and shape. I was so excited and happy that I couldn't contain the TEARS of JOY!! YES I CRIED!!! After the cut gave me a deep moisturizing treatment and then provided tips on applying products to style my hair. Needless to say this is the BEST haircut experience that I've ever had with my curls!!! LOVED the experience and I won't hesitate to make the drive to go back again!!! I loved my curls before, but I LOVE them even more thanks to Christopher!!!!
In love with my curls again!
Christopher is AMAZING, he talked me through everything he was doing and showed me even more ways to help my curls. I couldn't of asked for a better hair stylist and would recommend him to anyone; curly hair or not!
I was familiar with the curly girl haircut and have been using Devacurl products for over 3 yrs but was needing to find a new stylist. I'm so grateful I found Christopher!! He was very knowledgeable and asked lots of questions about how I take care of my hair, the products I use, and what I want my hair to look like. He took what I had always envisioned looking like (but had never been achieved) and turned it into my reality! I had a great experience and will most definitely be back and referring friends!
Christopher and my haircut was on spot! He adds the common sense factor to the diva curl haircut, and I've had many, that curls are ever changing so only giving a dry cut doesn't allow for the great curly look post haircut day. I recommend to all curly heads!
I had been searching the DevaCurl website for a certified stylist in the area. I am so glad I found Christopher! He worked magic on my crazy curly hair. I would highly recommend this Deva Hair Guru to anyone in search of a stylist who knows their DevaCurl.
Curly Mess Not A Mess Anymore
I am in Kansas City for a work conference and I unfortunately didn't have time to book an appointment back home in San Diego and I just couldn't show up to my conference (where I was speaking) with my hair in shambles. I found Christopher and Rumors Salon on the Deva Curl website, the salon was able to get me in on fairly short notice with Chrsitopher. He immediately made me feel at ease about my hair situation. My hair is short and extremely curly so this was a job for just not anybody. Let's just say I'm going into my conference with more confidence than I have had in a long time. Can Christopher come back to San Diego with me?!?
Bad hair cut
I went to Christopher for a Deva Curl cut. He suggested a wet cut and dry, then finish with a dry cut. Since I did not know him I did not disagree. This is by far one of the worst cuts I've gotten, and given he is a highly trained Deva Curl stylist I do not understand his resistance to just a Deva Cut. This same exact thing happened with a friend of mine who went to him a few days later. We are both from out of town. I am sorry to have to say that I would not recommend Christopher.
Went to see Christopher for a DevaCurl cut and I felt he gave me a very in depth consultation. He gave me a few options for how he could cut my hair to best meet my needs. The next day I styled my hair for myself and I felt it was perfectly cut and everything laid just how I had asked of him. I will continue to see him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a DevaCurl stylist in the area.
