Disrespectful and Greedy

Service Received: DevaCut
Price: $126-$175

I constantly asked about Deva curl products and was very discouraged to buy them and go "organic". Don't waste your time here. I asked for the names of the products they used in my hair so I can keep using them and ron refused to tell me them because I did not by them directly at the salon where he wanted $275 for the cut and products.

Talking with the owner gave me a panic attack

Title says it all. I was so thankful a salon like this existed in Albany. I whole-heartedly embraced Lorraine Massey's curly-girl method and I resonated with the stories in her book about bad haircut story's from curl girls going to straight hair salons. I have so many bad stories. I'm sorry to say this salon only added to the anxiety.

Rude owner, not professional

I have gone to Moisture Salon a few times now and at this point don’t believe I will be back. The overpriced haircut is ok but what solidifies my decision to not return is how rude Ron (and his receptionist) is. Look at any negative review he has on any platform, he goes off the deep end insulting the people who leave it. Any kind of business owner should respect their clients, instead you have to be “scared into not leaving a review” because of the trash talking you will get. Sitting in the chair I’ve heard him trash numerous clients, some who had just left and spent money because of reasons A,B,C. My advice for any clients of his, it’s great until you have an issue with a hair cut or color. When you do, watch out for the wrath of Ron.

Deeply mortifying experience!

Ron refused to cut my hair because I was not using his products. I had used products he did not approve of, and he flat out refused to cut my hair after I had taken 1.5 hours off of work. My hair was clean, dry, and not tangled. He belittled me and called my hair disgusting. He now denies all of it. Ask his assistant. She was there.

One of the best!

I've traveled hours to see Ron. My sister gets her hair cut by him and when I saw how great hers looked I needed to go have him cut my hair.. a real treat to be in his chair! He puts a lot of thought in to his craft and it shows, my hair never looked so good! I know he's worked with Lorraine Massey before and is very involved in the curly hair artisty group. Definitely book an appointment with him.

Overjoyed!

Best salon experience ever. I was so nervous going in, believe me, I have had some serious hack jobs. Ron cut my hair just like I hoped he would, it was like he was reading my mind. I walked in to Ron's salon looking like an explosion, I walked out with a great cut, soft bouncy curls and a big smile.

Very happy!

I have been traveling to Devacurl in NYC and White Plains from Schenectady County for years to have my curly hair cut and styled properly. When I found Ron, I was not only happy to find a curly hair expert near my home, but very grateful that he is not only as good at what he does as my stylists at Devacurl, but I dare say even better!!!!

the consummate curly stylist

It is always a pleasure see someone who is a true expert at what they do. More importantly, Ron empowers the customer with endless tips for home maintenance. My hair looks absolutely beautiful, and I was able to get the same look at home with his helpful advise. I am sold.

Back in May I made an appointment with Ron for my mother & I. I learned about Ron through the Curly Hair Artistry group. I read a lot of great reviews about him. My mother lives upstate & I live in NYC. I wanted my mother to be able to have her hair done w/o having to wait until she visited me. I also wanted her to experience a professional who loves curly hair. Ron was great! My only request was that he left my hair long enough to put in a bun, anything else he wanted to do regarding shape & styling was up to him. I was transitioning back to curly hair from keratin & heat damage. I was shocked when he cut off my straight ends & I was able to see my true texture. I wasn't expecting my transition to end on that visit. I am happy with the results & love the way my hair is growing out. My mother is very happy & has learned to embrace her beautiful curls. After closing hours, Ron took the time to have lunch with us. We took a stroll afterwards & he shared his love of Schenectady. My parents have a new town to explore because of him. Ron, it was an honor to sit in your chair.

I visited Moisture Salon for my first time a few weeks ago. Throughout my entire life, I've never been able to leave a salon with my hair as curly as I can make it on a daily basis...until this visit! Ron truly knows curls and how to work with them. I would highly recommend him and wouldn't hesitate to make an appointment! I will definitely be going back!

Ron gets 10 stars from me! I was the queen of curly hair disasters before meeting him. I would cringe when I saw photos of my dry flat hair. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else now. Ron's amazing cut and instructions on how to wash/style are priceless! Go see him!

I found DevaCurl while living in NYC. I was a DevaSalon client. One of my fears of moving back upstate was who would cut my hair? I actually went back to the city a few times. Then, I found Ron! Some people may have taken a course and declare themselves Deva Stylists. Don't be fooled. ALL he does is curly hair and has spent a lot of time learning and perfecting what he does and it shows! My hair looks great and I always have a great time when I visit him. (No idea where Boticelli Curls was as that sure doesn't sound like the Ron I know and love). Go see Ron, you and your curls will be glad you did!

Ron sure does know curls

I have been going to Ron since he moved back from the NYC.. He helped me in every step of my hair recovery. From the first appt with him he instructs you on how to show up with your hair. He also go over in great detail the way to take care of your hair at home. Ron also will be very honest with you if he feels you need some changes in your routine to obtain your best curl. So definitely check him out.. he is the only one in the area that cuts curly hair that actually learned from Devachan Salon. Listen to him and you will have gorgeous curls.

Great haircut but poor service

I have been to Moisture Salon several times. Best haircuts and styling I have ever had on my curly hair. I learned so much about styling my hair that I never knew before. Unfortunately, the treatment and customer service I have received has been so disappointing. During one of my visits, I nearly cried and walked out. I love my hair but it is not worth feeling like that to get it. Hoping to find a new stylist with better manners.

Love had Ron brings out the best of my curls
