Great curly cut by Jim
I have been to this salon for several times, I trust Jim’s expertise and every single time I walk out with a great haircut that grows out nicely. At this area, he was the only hairdresser who cut my hair with evenly amazing layers and shape so far. He is attentive and professional who is truly passionate about precision haircut. He showed me how his Dyson Hairdryer works for drying curls because it drys them quickly and doesn’t blow the hair around too much, absolutely leaves the curls glossy and undisturbed after diffused. Transformation and styling with Devacurl products, it takes time but the salon has a relaxing and comfortable environment that allowed me to enjoy the lengthy process. I appreciated the time Jim and his assistant took to take care my hair.
Advice to those who need a Devacut
I was booking an appointment with Jim for curly haircut six months ago and I come back for cut & color. He adding round layers to dense my hair, which actually decreases the volume when styled correctly. It was a pleasure and I love my results. Even after a few months, my hair still look in a good shape with the amazing layers. After that, as I recommended this salon to my mom, she was full of anticipation but this time there was a lady named Aury did her curly cut. She was happy to answer all the questions which made her feel so comfortable. BUT, my mom didn’t got the result she was expected. Aury absolutely spend her time, she was friendly and talkative, but we don’t think she knows cutting hair, she even didn’t know what she was doing and cut my mom’s hair laminated and the layers completely disconnected. My advice to those who are booking a service here, if you are looking for a talented stylist to cutting your hair, Jim would never let you down. BUT, stay away from Aury, she cutting hair completely untechnical.
A journey to healthy curls
Writing this review because this salon gave me a difference experience compared to what I used to had. I used to went to another curly hair salon near this area, the stylist gave me the amazing curls in my life ever, but I was shocked to know that the stylist created my curls with curling iron after applying the Devacurl products and diffused. Yes, with Curling Iron, and that’s why the curls came out gorgeous lol. I was glad with the result but ridiculously. Actually, the transformation helps to prove that a fresh Devacut can truly bring that beautiful bounce back, that’s what I expected, so just don’t understand why the stylist used the curling iron to my curls??? I come to this salon cuz my best friends highly recommended Jian Jim to me for the haircut. To my amazement and satisfaction, it was a journey to healthy curls, his dry cut technique remove only what’s necessary for volume and shape. Ditch the tools & use fingers to detangle and style my curls with Devacurl products which encourage smoothness and curls clumping. My curls came out in their nature state with a fresh new perspective & a healthy look. That’s the power of transformation. But what I highly recommended was Jim’s haircut skills, to me, a very critical person, his haircut was impeccable!!! Overall, very nice experience at this salon. To all curly girls: if you need a Devacut, don’t go to the salon which created your curls with curling iron even it looks incredibly gorgeous, a specialist never transformed your curls with curling iron but to their natural state and healthy curls with their bounce back.
Not happy and ...
I’ve seen lots of amazing reviews from different salon, but I never trust them no matter the reviews great or not cause I had very horrible experience in the past two years. I have long curly&wavy hair, someone did my curly cut just like a gardener cropped the hedges but with sickeningly notches & gaps, even though they are the Devacurl certified stylists. I broke down and wept, my self-esteem was non-existent, which could be a nightmare of my life. I coming to this salon because my girlfriend highly recommended to me. However, I didn’t know what to expect for this time(maybe even worse) So I was praying and hoping Jim knew what he was doing. I am not happy with the transformation indeed(someone will like it anyway) Absolutely your curls are feeling moisturized, bouncy, voluminous after transformation, but how about a few days/weeks later? I didn’t care but gave me a nice haircut please? Fortunately, I mean, thanks god! Jim did not let me down, he is a quiet man but really took his time. He works incredibly detailed, highly mature, and extremely accomplished. OVERALL, I am not happy with the procedure(it really took my time on the chair depressingly) but very pleased with the result. Well...finally relieved!!!
Not perfectly, but changed my view of Devacut
I walked in with my hair flat and frizzy. I am sorry for forgetting let Jim know I just want my curls back only dry-cut without diffuse, without transformation but only applying products. All of the Devacurl stylists told me they need my hair WET while transformations, I just thought it was ridiculous. Definitely I don’t like stylists transformative my hair with hands, I still don’t like my hair WET after dry-cut. I don’t want my hair looks fluffy as a wild-curl up after diffuse. That’s why it was hard for me to found my stylist. Jim is honestly and knowledgeable, he told me he couldn’t make it if followed my thoughts and definitely will be disappointed not matter who Devacut my hair. Really?? How come?? Jim talked to me politely with all his patience, he told me he met two clients last week, they all convinced that their curls will come back only with applying products but without transformation, without layers, without diffuse.....just as what I thought above. “I might disappoint you if I defer to your idea to carry on. And, I pretty sure you won't be satisfied with the result.” said by Jim. Anyway, I was inspired by him and pleasantly surprised at his honesty and heartiness. As my short curly hair(not that short, above my shoulders) and if I need angles of both sides, he said he couldn’t cut too much layers and trying to keep the lengths. Jim absolutely took his time and did gave me a nice curly cut finally. But, am I going to change my thoughts of Devacut which seemingly obstinate???
Never had a worse haircut in my life
I went in to get a devacut while in PA, because I saw all of the amazing reviews. When I got there, Jim immediately started brushing out my hair and cutting off significant chunks telling me that DevaCurl teaches you to not brush out curls when you cut, but he was so good he didn't have to. He then proceeded to style my hair without telling me anything that he was doing (even though a key part of someone's first devacut is to teach them how to style their hair). When he was finished my hair looked like a giant birds nest, a million times worse than when I came in!! I was so shocked that I immediately burst into tears, to which his response was to wash my hair again, take $30 off the haircut, and give me some conditioner. Then he sent me home with sopping wet hair and no idea what to do with it. My hair has never looked worse and it has completely killed my self esteem. At least before, if it looked terrible, I could blow it out straight or something to cover it up, but now I essentially have shelves in my hair (as if I have one haircut on top of another!). I've never felt worse.
Received lots of praise because of my best curly cut
Jim Jian is a Genius when it comes to cutting curly hair! He has given me the best haircuts of my life. I've moved all over the place, and consequently been to many, many stylists over the years (with some pretty disastrous results) and I am so glad to be back and within driving distance, once again, of Salon Papillon .Jim knows curly hair and clearly digs making it as beautiful as possible. His Deva cut is fantastic. I like that he listened and cut off very little hair (I keep it just past shoulders) but still bounced up the curl and created a new shape. Cannot recommend highly enough! There was a family party and lecture last week, my curly haircut received a lot of praises, thank you so much Jim, so see you next month for hair color !
Loved my hair cut!
I had no idea where I was going to get my hair cut as I haven't actually gone to someone for 5 years. I found Jim online and decided to take my chances. Completely worth it. He was great, took his time, explained everything, and the results were amazing. I definitely recommend this salon for curly hair.
Love my curly cut!
Ive been getting Deva cuts for around 6 years now, but this may have been my best! Jian (Jim) was not just fantastic at cutting and styling, but he took the time to explain everything I should be doing to maintain the look on my own - both with blow-drying and air drying, what products work best with my hair type, and how to stretch to 2nd, 3rd and longer day curls. salon was clean and comfortable - will definitely return!
Best Stylist for Curly hair!!
This was my first time met Jim at Salon Papillon. I know this salon when I search on Google. I was living in New Jersey and it definitely far from the salon (it took me 1 hours and a half to be salon papillon, PA) But what I want to say is: it do very worthwhile !!! Jim is a haircut master, that's for sure. Before I came to this salon, I was heard Jim from my friend, Nancy. She works in PA and she's a curly girl too. There was a party I met my friend Nancy and her fabulous haircut was got a lot of praise from people at that party. That was the first time I heard Jim from her and she did highly recommended Jim to me. But what surprised me was it took even 2 hours and a half for my friend to be here, she said she didn't care because it worth it. For sure, I got a very nice haircut finally ! The quality of my curls was unbelievable. I was actually happy at that moment that I had curly hair and for the first time I was leaving a salon loving my hair!
The best Deva Cut by Jim Jian !!
Getting a good haircut when you have curly hair is very difficult. I used to found the curly hair stylists at Devacurl website, I do got a good Devacut from other salon but still not perfect enough until I met Jim at Salon Papillon. The salon located at Wynnewood, PA . Much closer to where I work and just next to my favorite restaurant Sang Kee, the parking lot is easy for parking. Jim is very knowledgeable about curly hair and highly skilled in the Deva Cut. In addition, he listened to my concerns and gave me the result I was hoping for. Highly recommend coming here !
Thanks to Aury my curls were brought back to life!
I had my first ever DevaCut with Aury, and let me tell you my hair has never looked better! My flat, frizzy, lifeless curls have really been brought back to life. I would really, really recommend getting a Devacut with Aury. She "dry cut" my hair using my hair's natural texture to give me layers and shape the hair style for it's finished look. She then took me to the shampoo bowl and educated me on how to use the Deva Original NoPoo to cleanse my scalp and followed it with Deva Decadence One Condition to soften and moisturize my curls and bring them back to life. She helped me choose the right products for my hair and the right way to style it as well. I use the DevaCurl B'Leave-In and DevaCurl Styling Cream layered. The next day I refresh with DevaCurl Mister-Right. I'm never getting a regular haircut again. I also went back and visited Aury to get my hair colored in DevaCurl's "Pintura" method. Aury and Salon Papillon is where I'm going from now on! Thank you soooo much Aury! See you again soon! Go to their website for my before and after photos at [www.salonpapillonpa.com](http://www.salonpapillonpa.com).
1st Time Ever with Aury for the DevaCut!!!
I have had curly hair all my life and I would always straighten my hair because I couldn't control the frizz. I made a appointment with Aury to get the DevaCut. I was so happy and shocked how beautiful my curls came out and the frizz was controlled and I actually have beautiful curls! It has made all the difference for my everyday routine with my hair. I finally found the right products for my curly hair!!! Thank you Aury! I will see again soon! Alexis
Finally found my hairstylist !!!
Usually I do not writing reviews by saying many beautiful words, because I am a very picky person. I had a very hard time in handle my curls, I have long curly hair with completely dry-out, super frizzy and damaged texture. I even had horrible experiences in the past at other curly hair salons which located in MainLine. Their stylists gave me a Devacut with no layers, no shape, hard to take care in daily. What’s worse, they don’t know how to cut hairs with cohesion and coherence on the whole until I met Jian Zheng (everyone call him Jim), the stylist at Salon Papillon. I would highly recommend Jim because he gave me the best haircut ever !!! Ever !!! Jim is technical, acknowledgeable, he not just cut my hair, but with fabulous layers, beautiful shape with cohesion and coherence. I’ve never had this much volume and curls before I met Jim. And I would say: That’s the real Devacut !!! I was so lucky I found my stylist at Salon Papillon and I definitely be back for the next haircut.
Excellent Devacut !!
Finally found my hairstylist !!! Today was my first visit to Salon Papillon. The salon is fantastic, Everybody that I interacted with was incredibly nice ! I had long curly hair and it was time to get it cut. I met Jim he spent so much time with me, working with me and cut my hair dry, it’s so light and easy and curly like when I was much younger. He also showed me some techniques to decrease my frizz and add volume to my curls. Thank you for such a great experience!! I’ve had horrible experiences in the past at other salons and wasn’t sure what to expect this time around. But I was soooo exciting After I leave from Salon Papillon. Very pleased with my first Devacut and styling with Jian Jim at Salon Papillon! He was very skilled and meticulous at Curly Haircut, I could tell I’ve never got such amazing haircut until I met Jim!
Amazing Devacut by Jim Jian
I was so blessed to be able to book an appointment for a Devacut with Jim. The day I came in with completely dried out and very frizzy hair. Jim gave my curly hair a healthy dry-cut( by cutting it while still dry) and followed up with DevaCurl products. He also showed me all of the steps of the process and even instructed me where the process would change if I were doing a wash and go. After 1 hour after, I absolutely got the surprised result( my curls back) !!! I was greatly appreciated that and will definitely be back for my next cut. He truly brought me BACK TO LIFE !!! By the way, very nice experience at Salon Papillon, I got more than what I expected so I will definitely be returning to Salon Papillon . I would recommend Jim to my friends.
