Stylists at this salon
I started going to kelly when I moved here from Ohio. We learned together on how I liked my hair; and after about a year felt it was Going ok; but never loved the cute. The charge was about 44-50; for a dry cut only. So come December; I get my trim and pay the bill and she says oh my rates will go up to 75.00 come January. I responded; oh like for a cut, wash and style? No..this is just for a cut🤔. I was like what are we in New York? Kelly stares she took a day class with Deva Curl-ok? But 75.00 for a dry cut; are you crazy; and a Level 1. I thought this was very unprofessional and would never suggest Kelly to anyone; to me it was rude and bad business. Like my previous business meant nothing to her; very unprofessional. When I lived in Ohio; I went to a Deva stylist 3; and for the full package for 75-85; not just a cut. Lighten up Kelly; your in NC. I think she does this cause she knows there are not many Deva stylists around. Stylists please get certified; it’s needed and please be respectful of your clientele. Thank you.
Finally healthy curls!
I had been struggling with my hair for a while. I liked shorter styles but often found myself using heat on my hair every day to keep my natural wave/curl/frizz under control. So, timidly, I went to get my first Devacurl cut. I went to Kelly and she knew immediately that I needed some revitalization! Through the entire cut, she explained what she was seeing and how she was cutting the curls to benefit me. Even through some pieces that were "acting up", she stayed confident and helped me achieve a look that I love. Within the first week of having it cut, I have had 10+ compliments from strangers complimenting my hair! I absolutely love it. The cut and the styling of my natural curl brings me more in tune with my own style. I love my new natural curls!
Love my Deva cut by Kelly!
I did my first cut with Kelly in January and didn't really go with an idea in mind of what I wanted. It was my first cut in years so my hair was wrecked and was in desperate need of professional help. Kelly mainly focused on getting some control over that insanity and getting rid of all the damaged ends. It made a big difference! I watched a bunch of videos on YouTube of curly haired girls styling their curls and over time found one who's hair was just like my own. I took a screenshot of her and took it with me to Kelly a couple of weeks ago. She nailed it! I LOVE my hair and I have gotten a ton of compliments since then! Last week a random guy told said, "that hair is really doing it for me." His straight haired wife just laughed and told me he married the wrong kind of woman. We all laughed over that because he looked like it was killing him to not get his hands in my hair. That was a first for me! I should have asked if he had a brother. LOL So I have FINALLY found my stylist and style after 51 years of dealing with this crazy mane. My only complaint is that she's an hour away.
Deva curl by Kelly Hamilton
I am in agreement with Sarah, this has been the worst hair experience I have went through. I went through the DEVA experience in January 2018 and still have not recovered. I did not do my Deva research before I went and now am very sorry. I wanted my hair in a slightly different style and I had pictures. I would be okay with just the wrong hairstyle or cutting it too short , but she texturized my hair. Texturizing is when you twist the hair together like you are spinning it around your finger and make little cuts in it, making all various lengths of a bunch of little hairs. Since I have curly hair all this did was create abundance of fuzz and it thinned out my hair. I have medium thick hair that is fine. What i have found out, because I went to another Deva specialist, is that has nothing to do with a Deva cut, also I have went on the deva site and numerous you tube videos from the person who created deve and this is a BIG NO NO. My hair is such a fuzzy mess and this whole process to0k 3 hours and 100.00 plus all the products I have bought Deva and not deva products. A Deva transformation is suppose to be about the stylist showing you how to use the DEva products and Kelly just told my to look it up on the website. The horrible thing about all this is my daughter is getting married in September and I am thinking on just trying to blow out my hair and use a curling iron which I havent done in aobut 15 years. I spend so much time on my hair now which i never had too. I am not saying that Deva product are bad they are just not for me . I guess what has really upsetting me is that Kelly used a technique on my hair that I have had other stylist to tell me now that should not be used on fine hair or it will make it fuzzy. Since she did her twisty technique up to the top of my head I guess it is going to take about 2 years for all those little hairs to grow out to catch up with the others. All I wanted to do was to be open and learn about some new curly hair roducts. I wished I would have never heard of Kelly or Deva product. It has taken me a long time to write this bad review because I never write reviews and futhermore not a bad review. I am just trying to save someone else the trouble. I wonder how many people have had a bad experience but just wont write about it. !!!!
Deva Cut not for me
I went through the Deva Curl Transformation for the first time in April. I researched the cut and watched videos about it. Getting my hair cut is very stressful for me. So it took me about 6 months to get up the courage to even call for this kind of cut. I had so much hope for this to be the cut for me to finally love my curly hair. Sadly n the end I have been extremely disappointed. I was surprised at how little was cut from my hair. I asked twice for the sides and the front of my hair which are my trouble areas to be trimmed and shaped up. I was assured that was what was being done to my hair. I take my glasses off so I just have to trust that the stylist is doing what I ask. I also asked that my hair be part in the middle because I like it to be able to go either way. When I left my hair was styled with a deep side part. It looked nice at the time and I guessed it was just how she had wanted to style it. But later I realized that my hair was not cut with a middle part in mind. It was cut with a deep side part in mind. Which doesn't work with my hair. IAfter the transformation I put my glasses on I really did like how my hair looked and felt. I had a feeling that not enough was trimmed and shaped but after seeing how it looked I figured more had been taken off than it seemed. So I even bought a starter deva curl set. Well it has been three months and I have not liked my hair since the first time I washed my hair after the transformation (which was 2 days after). The sides and front of my hair were not trimmed or shaped up. I have watched deva curl videos and have spent a lot of money on deva curl products hoping to find the right formula. Plus I unfortunately was quoted 65.00 on the phone when I made my appointment for the transformation but the actual price was 120.00 . I was totally shocked. I should have said something at time of payment but at the time I liked my hair so I let it go and figured it was worth the cost. But I can not figure out how to make my hair look good and I can't help but think it is because not enough was done to shape my hair. It's taken me this long to write a review because it pains me to complain about it and everyone was so nice and the salon is very cute and has a pleasant atmosphere. But I have never in my life spent as much as I have in the last 3 months on my hair nor have I been this unhappy with how it looks daily or how much work I have to do to make it look somewhat decent. I am going to go back to blowing it out, using a curling iron and getting bangs. I'm glad so many others have had such good success with the deva curl cut and products but it obviously is not for me. Or maybe I did a terrible job communicating what I wanted. I don't know. It's a very nice salon and the stylist was very kind and good. But this was not a good experience for me at all.
Kelly is the woman for curly hair! Not only is my cut perfect but she explained how to wash, condition, and style my hair! She took her time and focused on my curls as she was cutting. I highly recommend Kelly for anyone with curly hair!
I’m so happy I listened to the reviews!!!
I had my first Deva cut with Kelly, and I love it! I drove all the way from Charlotte to find a great Deva stylist and I’m so happy the reviews were right! Kelly is awesome and my curls look bouncy and beautiful...If I could post a pic I would...If you’re thinking about trying a Deva cut, do it! Go to Kelly, your curls will thank you :)
Kelly has the skills!
I am delighted to have the opportunity to provide a review for Kelly. I drove from Boone (38 miles away) to find a Deva trained specialist and she did NOT disappoint! I have never had someone give such careful attention to to the way my hair likes to curl or the patterns of hair growth. She is experienced, personable and easy to communicate with. Kelly took her time creating a personal precision cut and I appreciated the tips she gave me on using Deva products with absolutely no high pressure to buy at the salon. I love my hair cut and I will definitely be making this trip again!
Awesome cut and color! Love the space too. It's refreshing to get great hair care by someone who truly loves what they do and also gets how curly hair works. Recommend and will be back!
Love my devacut
i absolutely love my hair now. Kelly did my first ever Devacut and she did such An amazing job. She introduced me to all the products. The best cut I have ever had. I definatley recommend kelly to cut your curly hair
My devacut by Misty was incredible!! I'd had a devacut about six months before in Charleston, but my curls had gotten pretty frizzy and grown out. Misty was really understanding in figuring out what I wanted, and the shape/form she gave my hair was such a incredible change! She took her time with each curl, and my curls feel better than ever now. She also really knows her way around the Devacurl products and explained what she was doing with everything. If you have curly hair, this is WELL worth it. It was a huge game changer for learning to not only cope with my curly hair, but learning to really LOVE it!
Best Haircut Ever!
After being frustrated with not being able to find someone to understand my curls and just resorting to trimming it myself, I finally found the perfect stylist! Kelly was amazing the first time I went to her. I had never walked out of a salon feeling great about my haircut until I went to her salon. I knew immediately I could trust her with my hair and she really took her time to get the cut just right. You can tell she loves what she does. She recently cut my hair again and all I can say is that I wouldn't trust anyone else with my hair but her! So glad I found her! Definitely recommend!!
excellent cut, color, & style
I found Kelly through this website & decided to book an appointment with her while in town visiting my family. I was very pleased! She gave me a great cut, color, & style & walked me through the process on how to care for & style my curls at home. She answered my questions about my hair type & styling do's & don'ts. Kelly is a really friendly and down to earth person. I really enjoyed sitting in her chair and chatting together. If you have curly, wavy, frizzy, coarse, or unmanageable hair (or all of the above), definitely give Kelly a visit and let her work her magic. Thanks, Kelly!
Was so glad to see a local salon with a Deva Cut Stylist. Kelly was amazing. So friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all my questions. I have never had a Deva Cut before and I am more than happy with the results! Will definitely be back!
Best haircut and tips ever!
I searched to find a DevaCurl stylist in our area and was pleasantly surprised to find one nearby. I wanted a complete overall of my hair and a plan: layers, how to deal with my hair flattening out on top even though I would clip it when wet to give it some lift, and to merge the length of my hair with the front sides so that there were no corners but was well blended. Kelly totally understood my hair and gave me the tip that my hair grows forward on top and so I need to clip it and then pull it back some in order to give it lift and not flatten out. Lightbulb moment! She blended the sides and length wonderfully! I was totally surprised it turned out so well. Kelly seems like she knew how to cut curly hair before becoming DevaCurl certified, but she has also taken 5 Deva classes and does incredible work!!!! I totally recommend having both a haircut and styling by her and she even gives tips about how to maintain your cut in between having her cut your hair. My husband loves my new haircut and the day after I had my haircut and styling, I was in a store and someone stopped me to say “Your hair is beautiful!” Finally, Kelly’s hair is naturally curly which is a confidence booster in her skill as well.
Kelly did an awesome job on my wavy/curly hair! Kelly is very personable and down-to-earth and will listen to your concerns about your hair. She also will explain every step of the process from cutting to wash and conditioning and drying. My hair looked fabulous when I left the salon. Highly recommend going to Kelly if you have curly hair
Kelly Is Awesome!
Have never been as happy to find Kelly to work on my curly hair. From the minute I walked in the door until I left, I had an awesome experience. Kelly is very knowledgeable about the Deva Curl line as well as hair color. She took the time to listen to me and my concerns about a recent haircut that was not the best considering the stylist did not know much about curly hair although hers was very curly. I gave Kelly free rein on choosing a color and I could not be happier! She is very personable and down to earth and I had a great time just talking with her while she was working. I am so, so happy with the results and plan on being a client forever! I couldn't believe I found such a genuine professional and personable GEM right at my back door! Highly recommend her for anyone with curly hair - you won't be disappointed!!!
Finally, someone who knows their art with curly hair! From the moment I walked in the door, Kelly exceeded all of my expectations! As someone who had lost all trust for hair stylists, I was so impressed with her knowledge and listening to my concerns as well as my short and long-term wants! She was given free rein on my color and I could not be happier with the results. The past 2 days after applying the techniques she taught me, my curls have never looked better! She was also a great person to talk with about life and multiple other subjects! I am so lucky to have found her and certainly plan on a long business and I hope, personal journey with her! What an absolute gem to add to my life!!!
Misty is amazing!!!!
Omgoodness!!!!! In love with my curls again!!!!! Finally found someone who understands my hair and my frustrations. I have naturally curly hair and no one has been able to cut it right, until now. Divacut and curl are the bomb!!!!! Kelly and co. Has the best stylist around!!!
Someone who understands curly hair!
After years of being fed up with my hair and not knowing what to do with it I had given up! Kelly has done wonders with my hair. The frizz is gone! Kelly took time to explain the DevaCurl process. My hair looks great now.....thanks to Kelly.
Highly recommend Constance!
Constance really takes time with her customers to understand what they are looking for in a hair style. She introduced me to Deva Products and opened up a new world of options for different looks and time savings on styling my hair daily. Very happy she is my stylist!
Very pleased, Kelly is Awesome!
I took my granddaughter for her very first haircut (Deva Cut) which was also my first Deva Cut. Kelly did an amazing job with my granddaughter's long curls. She spent time explaining to me the importance of finger detangling and which Deva Curl products would be best for our hair. I am very pleased, she gave us exactly what we wanted- Shape and Volume! I highly recommend Kelly to all curly girls!!
I discovered DevaCurl on Pinterest. The transformations shown were amazing. From there I searched online for a DevaCurl specialist in my hometown. I found Kelly Hamilton. Kelly took her time and listened to what I wanted. She incorporated a little of her own pizazz as well and I walked away with an amazing cut and color. Kelly also explained the DevaCurl products to me and why some would work better than others on my hair type. Let me just say the DevaCurl products AND Kelly are AWESOME!
Constance is fantastic!
I recommend Constance to anyone with a head of curls! Curls can be challenging but Constance always gives me a great cut and she has taught me a lot of tricks to keep my curls looking great everyday!
Constance is an amazing stylist!
After years of struggling and straightening to tame my hair, I finally love my curls thanks to Constance. Constance is more than just a stylist. She takes her time and makes me feel special at every visit. I get many compliments on my hair all the time. Constance does an amazing job as a colorist too!
Constance is the best with curls!
I'd struggled for such a long time with frizzy hair and trying to define my curls, then I started going to Constance and she has been the best! During every cut she walks me through exactly what she's doing and explains what products she's using so that I have no trouble making my curls look good for weeks after she cuts it. She really knows exactly what she's doing and my curls look amazing after every cut. On top of that, Constance really takes the time to make sure it's cut beautifully, exactly as you want it. Definitely recommend!!
Constance McDaniel...Superb Stylist!
Constance McDaniel consistently works to provide me with a stylish and manageable hair style. I get compliments everyday. She is always seeking to improve her skills through continued education and has a burning desire to excel in her field. I am so happy with her excellent performance! Beverly Wetmore
I have never had my hair cut specifically to suit my curls. It was so amazing to finally get my hair done by someone who knew what they were doing and knew how to handle curls. Kelly truly knows her stuff and for the first time I was not anxious while getting my hair cut. I’m so so happy with the results! She also taught me how to better use my devacurl products. I would definitely recommend Kelly to anyone and everyone!
Kelly is the only person I let touch my hair!
I have been going to Kelly for about 2 years now. My hair was a mess before I started seeing her, and I hated getting my hair cut. Kelly knows how to cut all curl types, and uses only devacurl products. She not only gives a great hair cut, but she's great at apply color to curly hair and she walked me through the whole devacurl process so that I could take care of my hair at home!
I have fought curly/waves dry corse hair for my entire life. When I found Kelly it changed my world. Precise and accurate cut every time. Not to mention she is a rock star with color too. She is an amazing woman as well. Patient and kind to everyone . Thank you Lord for Kelly!!
Kelly is amazing in every way!
Kelly is the absolute BEST person who has ever done my hair! She is an artist! As we all know curly hair is challenging to deal with, but from day one she has given me the best cut and color I've ever received. Kelly takes her time and plays with my hair. She does a little something different each time which makes it interesting and she is great about educating me do that I can do a better job at home. All that and she is a truely sweet lady!
Knowledgeable and Talented
Kelly did an absolutely amazing job on my hair! I had waist length hair and wanted to go drastically short. After the first cut, she had to wash my hair to get some curl back into the top, which was stretched out straight from the weight of the hair. I knew she was the real deal when she confessed she never cuts curly hair wet and was only doing this because of the circumstances. True enough, after getting my hair to curl and figuring out my curl pattern, she patiently continued to shape and style it only after some time under the dryer. Kelly was diligent and patient during this appointment, and the results speak for themselves: I am in love with my new short curls. She knows her stuff!
Great cut and great stylist!
Absolutely love Kelly! She gave me my first Devacut and introduced me to Devacurl products. I couldn't be more happy with all of my haircuts so far! She pays special attention to your specific curl patterns and curl type. Super impressed with the cut and super impressed with Kelly's character! Definately recommend Kelly and her curl wisdom!
It takes a curly girl to cut a curly cut!
I love my curls- the curlier, the better! After many disappointing cuts from stylists all over the state, I discovered Kelly right here in my hometown! When I talked to her on the phone, I could tell she knew what she was talking about... "Curl patterns", "sulfate free"...she spoke my language!!! Sure enough, she mastered my curly cut and I have had more compliments on my hair since Kelly's cut then I had in years. It's not uncommon for complete strangers to stop me in the store and ask who cuts my hair, or what products I use. I have since referred every curly, ethnic and wavy-headed friend to Kelly. If you love your curls or WANT to love your curls, visit Kelly and it will literally change your curly-headed life!
Love my Devacurl stylist
I found Kelly about 18 months ago. She gave me my first DevaCut, introduced me to DevaCurl products and now I love my curls everyday...not just sometimes. She understands curly hair because she is a curly girl and she is fun to watch as she gets excited about all things Deva. Oh, and she does great color, too!
really cares about your cut
I've been going to Kelly for a year now, and really love the time I spend in her chair. She is so careful to spend time with you, talking about what you want and what she thinks your hair will do. Her knowledge of Devacurl products is thorough (she's a Devacurl user herself!) and she's just a lot of fun to be around! Highly recommend her for your curly haircut.
