Attitude is everything

LLR|August 17, 2019

Service Received: DevaCut

Price: $76-$125

Oh my gosh! I am not the only one that has picked up on attitude! My first appointment was also wonderful and my hair great. Now, I am met with attitude if I ask a question that, apparently, I should know the answer to. And, my last cut was NOT her best AT ALL. A new stylist was shocked at the job done. I’m sorry, but that’s a lot of money to drop only to be met with snarky remarks and criticism. And, as one person mentioned, subsequent appoints are a cut only. She will pull your curls out to cut and at the end, you are a ball of horrible hair and on your merry way. Thankfully, there are other stylists in the area.


No good for “ethnic” hair

Service Received: DevaCurl Transformation

I went to Melissa a while back and left with my hair looking like a frizz ball. Also I felt very uncomfortable as some of the other clients were staring at me as she was doing my hair, like they never saw a black persons hair in their lives. I even went back for a second appointment since at least she trimmed the ends well, and she completely had no record of me every being there before. She took no time with me and this time wouldn’t even trim my hair. I would not recommend to those of us with curly-kinky hair.


Fantastic First

Price: $126-$175

My first appointment with Melissa was great. She gave me a new client cut and taught me a lot. She was very patient with me and answered all my questions. As a curly girl this was the first cut I feel was done correctly. I wrote this review as I know how scary it can be trying a new stylist especially with natural curly hair. Don't hesitate give her a try.
