Stylists at this salon
Let me start by saying I have a deep distrust of stylists. I have curly, dry, easily damaged hair. Ive spent hundreds on my hair and left feeling like I could do a better job myself. Ive left Salons and cried stupid tears over the waste. So for years, I just took care of my own hair... If I screwed it up, I was only out a few bucks. But I wanted a somewhat drastic change. Ive never had anything but long hair. But its shapeless and finicky and dry at the bottom. I got several recomendations from curly haired ladies in the area to try Salon 554, specifically Sara Brown. First of all, she listened and seemed like a smart cookie. Educated on curly hair. My hair was cut dry and she took the time to teach me some styling techniques. Nothing like any other salon experience I have had. My hair is legit bouncing shirley temple curls. Springy, frizz free, bouncy. My husband said my new hair made me look younger! (Def keeping the look!) The color was also fantastic. She didn't fry my sensitive hair. It was a bit spendy but since I havent had anyone touch my hair in 2+ years, and she did a million things to it, I felt it was worth it. Definitely highly recommend!
NOT a DEVA cut!
Marketed as a DEVA salon, but only the owner is DEVA trained, then she 'trains' her stylists. Stylist sold me a very expensive "Calligraphy" cut instead, which completely frizzed my hair more than it normally is. Worst cut I've ever gotten! This is the 3rd "DEVA" salon I've tried and they all do DEVA with their own twist. I have not had a good cut yet! You should trademark your brand like Pilates does, so that if they claim to be DEVA-trained, the cut is 100% DEVA. Very disappointed so far.
THE place for DevaCuts!
As a mixed girl, I am so glad I found this place! I got the devacut plus highlights. Here is an album of my before/after:
Sarah really took her time with my hair and answered any questions I had regarding my hair. They were all very friendly and inviting. Sarah and Heather did such an amazing job with my hair.
