Best Experience I've Ever Had

Everyone here was super knowledgable and made sure I left with results I was looking for. I can't remember the last time my hair looked this good!

To say I was nervous and scared would be an understatement. My hairstylist for years went on permanent maternity leave. I was lost and afraid. I came in with brassy faded damaged hair. I left still a little nervous how the products would work. I was so used to putting so much product in my hair. I was nervous I would be a frizzball by the time I got back to work. Like I normally am if a stylist tries to style my hair. Thanks to Liz, my hair instead sprung into ringlets. She tried to reassure me it had enough product and she was right. My husband said my hair looked fake or like someone had curled it. I still need to try and recreate it myself � I’ll be back. Thanks Liz!

Thank you Liz!

I enjoyed the experience. I appreciated how Liz asked exactly what I wanted not just assumed what I needed, she also explained how to wash and style my hair. I usually don't like paying too much for my hair cuts but I will definitely do this again. It was well worth it! I had for sure been getting what I paid for!

Omg! I’m so thankful I found this place! My hair looks AMAZING! I came in nervous because I hadn’t let anyone cut my hair in years. Emily listened to what I wanted and made me feel comfortable that I let go of all the worries I had. She is very knowledgeable about natural hair and the Deva line. Through out the whole process she explained what she was doing and why. When styling she used what I had at home and how I should apply to truely see my curls. Emily really exceeded my expectations on how my hair would turn out. I’ve never seen my hair curl the way it does now and I’m completely satisfied that I made the right decision to embrace my curls!! I will be back

Major Disappointment

Rating
by Veronica on MAY 03, 2018

I've been working for months to get my hair as healthy as possible and make my curls look their best. I had put off getting a Deva cut because I was afraid to spend $50+ on a haircut and be disappointed. I followed New Creations on FB and IG for months and finally decided that it would be worth a try. I contacted them, set up an appointment and when the day finally arrived, I was excited because I had the best hair I've ever had and couldn't wait to see how it'd look with the dry/damaged ends cut off. I made the hour long drive and waited for Emily to arrive. As soon as she walked up to me, I had a sense I should run. Her voice was shaky and she seemed frightened and uncomfortable when she looked at me. I asked how long she'd been cutting curly hair to which she replied that she's been doing it for a year. I thought, ok...fine, that seems reasonable. So she cut my hair and I wasn't feeling great about it but it was my first time so I wasn't sure exactly how the process happened. Then we went to wash/"style". She explained what she was doing which is nice but when she took me back to the mirror, my hair was practically straight...Then she barely diffused and sat me under a heat drier thing for perms/coloring then diffused a little more. As I watched in horror, I fought back tears, hoping once I got home, I could make it better. My hair was nearly stick-straight when I left. I walked into the salon with the best curls of my life and left with hair that looked like I just rolled out of bed. No wonder they didn't take before/after photos like they said they would when I made my appointment. I had plans after my morning cut and was sad to have to run around the city with what appeared to be bed-head coming straight from the salon. It's been a month since I got my cut and my hair looks terrible. It was the worst cut I've ever had. I never had a cut by a "regular" stylist that left me feeling like this. My hair has not recovered. I feel like I'm starting ALL OVER in my curly hair journey and am now scared to try another curly stylist because I wasted 50+ dollars on a terrible cut already.

Found a stylist I can trust

I have naturally curly hair, not super kinky, but almost a year after a bad cut, I was very nervous. I was so happy to find a salon that places an emphasis on unique cutting and styling techniques for curly hair! Emily was my stylist and she took her times and had patience with me. She made sure to educate me on techniques and products throughout the session. I left so happy with my soft, healthy curls. She sent me home with a sample of the gel we used and I've been able to replicate the look very easily for a couple of weeks now. I'm glad I found this cute salon. Definitely recommend!!!

I lost my hairdresser who understood curls. I would rather change my Doctor or Dentist than a hairdresser who knows curls. I had resolved myself to "just okay" curly hair, until now! Tavia cut my hair perfectly the very first time. My curls are better than they have ever been.

I've finally embraced my curls

Rating
by PJ on APRIL 03, 2018

I've been going to New Creations for almost 10 years. I don't let anyone else touch my hair. I have naturally curly hair and spent most of my life using the wrong products, doing the wrong things, and having bad haircuts. Not only do they cut my hair beautifully but they have also taught me how to care for my hair and style it to achieve the looks I want. For the first time in my life I've learned to embrace my curls rather than hate them. I've taken other friends and family and they have all been impressed with their treatment and outcome. The best salon in KC in my opinion. <3

Emily knows Curls

Rating
by Monique on APRIL 01, 2018

I'm SO glad I found Emily! She is amazing! To start off my review I'm going to briefly describe my hair (because when I read reviews I like to have a little history). I am bi-racial, chemically relaxed my hair for approx. 25 years before deciding to go natural. I went to a different stylist for my "big chop". I explained in detail to the other stylist (completely unrelated to The Curl Girl) the shape I was wanting to achieve, even showed her pics of women with my hair type. I feel this other stylist did not really listen to me, didn't try to get to know me & my hair and she was very rushed. Well I left that other salon complexly disappointed with a very ugly straight bob cut. NOW COMES EMILY!!! First of all she took plenty of time ​communicating with me before my appointment, answering all my questions and asking me questions to make sure she could give me what I wanted. I REALLY appreciated that! She proceeded to treat my curls with such care. She TOTALLY transformed my ugly straight old-fashioned bob cut into a modern, cute inverted curly bob! She made a client for life that day :)

No more triangle!

by Kate on MARCH 29, 2018

I arrived at the salon with the infamous triangle head and was really scared of getting a haircut since all hairstylists I've been to before didn't know how to handle my hair. But Tavia was extremely pleasant, listened to what I had to say and gave me the exact result I wanted. My hair now looks amazing and frames my face very nicely. She also took the time to explain and show me how I should style my hair. I will definitely return in a few months and recommend this place for anyone who wants to love their curls!!

Very happy with my hair

Tavia is the best curly hairstylist I have ever found! She listened carefully to my concerns and wishes and then she recommended a cut and color design that would complement my face shape, eye color and hair texture. I am thrilled with the results! The haircut and highlights she gave me look truly fantastic, and I have received many compliments from my friends. I never knew my curly hair could look so good. Tavia is a kind and talented professional. I highly recommend her!

I found this salon online and prayed that the fabulous reviews were not an exaggeration...THIS IS THE BEST haircut I have EVER HAD! This can happen to YOU too and your "mind-of-its-own" curly hair! Emily is AMAZING! I have very curly hair and she spent all the time necessary to explain what she wanted to do for me and why... and then she made it happen. I also got highlights that she painted on my hair & they are just right! It has been one week since my appointment and following her instructions, my hair is looking better with every passing day! Go to New Creations for a new YOU that you will LOVE! Thank you Emily!

After my hair stylist of over 15 years changed careers, I was nervous to see anyone else but I've definitely found a new home here. I've followed the Deva Curl method for a few years now but this was my first visit to a stylist trained in the method. Emily was super sweet and obviously knew what she was doing. She taught me how to clip my hair so it won't be too flat on top and helped me understand the proper amount of conditioner to use. She even matched my color perfectly and recommended / used a deep conditioner to help seal in moisture and color. Everyone was very friendly and the atmosphere was fun and relaxing. Highly recommend New Creations and Emily!

Tavia was da bomb! She was fun & personable, as well as having some serious stylist chops. This is a salon that specializes in curly hair; specifically, the DevaCurl method. Wavy, kinky, spirally hair is its own unique challenge -- you curly girls know what I'm sayin' \-- the stylists here will be happy to educate you on ways to help tame the mop & fight the frizz. I am happy with my hair for the first time in a loooong while. The standard service is a dry cut & a cleanse/moisturizing treatment. They also offer some other salon services (brows, mani/pedi) but I haven't been here for that. I expected a fairly aggressive upsell on products (since it's always that way when you switch to a new method,) but surprisingly, the product sell was pretty low-key. Tavia suggested the one thing I really ought to have, and some other things that I might want to think about next time, which seemed considerate of my wallet. The cut itself was priced fairly, $48 at this writing, which is in line for the type of service & the area. I will definitely be returning.

The best my hair has ever looked!!

After doing A LOT of research I decided to go see Tavia. She had rave reviews both here and on Facebook, and other places around the web. I was not disappointed. She knows her stuff! The best color and cut I've ever received. She was friendly and informative and really passionate about her work. I left happy with my hair and happy in my heart. She is a true artist and I'm thrilled to have found her. I fully trust her with my hair and highly recommend her. She also cut my husbands hair and it's the best cut he's ever had. We both have natural curls.

I have a regular deva stylist, but a series of unfortunate events led me to Sandy at New Creations. Traveling 2 weeks back to back, (with 2 business days turn around), my stylist booked, left me with a mop and an appointment in June! I was ready to hit Great Clips with my son, but KNEW my curls needed a deva stylist and I was willing to pay whatever cost for whoever I could find that could cut my hair. In comes New Creations. The first clue should have been that they could get me in same day, within 2 hours actually. But I was so excited I left my son on his way to work and made the trek 30 minutes from where I was to Westport (An area of the city I rarely travel) and an hour from my home. I showed Sandy a picture of my hair taken a day or two after the cut I loved. Instead of shaping my hair the way I'd seen my stylist do, she began following my stylist's lines, telling me what a great cut I had been given. She pulled my curls up like every stylist I'd had before deva and told me that she was following her cut. She shampoo'd and used the new build up buster, "even though you didn't have any build up." The water was cool and I was never asked if the temperature was okay. The dryers were being used so she'd "have to" diffuse my hair. In less than 5 minutes a dryer was available and I was moved. Honestly, it felt like I was too much of a bother. My hair wasn't right but I wasn't sure what was off. Except it was still very long on the top and felt heavy. When I left, I thought I could live with it for 3 weeks. I paid my $48 + tip and walked out. The timeline of the calls made tells me I was in the stylists chair for about 30 minutes. As I drove toward my home south of the city by about a hour I disliked my cut more and more, especially considering the price! Let me add here, I am not usually a hair complainer. I can tolerate a bad cut, I know it'll grow out, but this is probably one of two cuts I've ever had that were worse than worse. In fact, before deva, I'd hit the local school and had always been pleased with my student cut. I finally stopped and called the salon asking for at least a partial refund. Their solution? Come back at 4:30 so the stylist could fix it. It was 3 pm. So, I was to hang around the city and drive downtown at 4:30 so I could drive home in rush hour. I was already frazzled because I had taken extra time to drive for the first deva cut. I had things to do at home before I left for my trip. I was sitting in the chair at Great Clips when she called saying her 3pm had cancelled or didn't show I honestly don't remember. The gal tried to fix what Sandy had done. She said it looked like she had just stopped in the middle of the cut and left me half done. When I returned Sandy's call and told her I wasn't making the trip back downtown, said she'd talk to the owner about some kind of a refund and let me know. We'll see what they say. Now, instead of the cute, fun summer cut I had, I have an old lady cut for the bargain price of about $80!!!! Because that's about the best the gal at GC's could do to fix it. Where's my baseball cap?????????

We learned a lot (and look great)

Because I grew up in a dry climate, I didn't even know my hair was wavy, and we just thought my daughter's hair was frizzy, despite her father's very textured hair. Sandy showed us how to care for our hair and make it look great, now my daughter loves her curls!

I went to see Tavia in July 2016. I had so much heat damage, and I wanted to get back to my naturally curly hair. I was so scared to do a big chop, but she assured me that we'd only have to do this once and I would love it. After she cut it, she showed my how to style my hair and gave me some tips. I have been in love with my hair ever since! It's healthier and has been growing so well. I highly recommend Tavia!

Tavia has been doing my daughter's hair for about a year. I brought here when I couldn't tame her curls and was exhausted spending countless hours conditioning at home. At the first appointment she told me she would save all of that time! Tavia was not joking , she taught her that day how to properly use the Devacurl line. My daughter has been managing her own hair since that first appointment!! I have referred my niece, girlfriends grand daughter and many others! I love the results every time. Thank you Tavia, New Creations Salon and Devacurl!!!

I hated my curls and straightened my hair my entire life (and I'm 48), until I started going to New Creations Salon three years ago.

It’s fun to discover something new about yourself, not to mention so much less work!
