Stylists at this salon
My first DevaCut and I loved it! I have a lot of hair, so I wanted to try a deva cut. Not only that, I didn't like my last hair cut (cut by a different stylist, NOT Emma). I had this chunk of hair on the right side that was just way shorter than the rest of my hair, so there was a huge gap in my layers that just did not look right. Emma was able to even that out and gave me the cut that I needed. My hair was also a little damaged from the flat iron. Emma told me what I needed to do to get my hair healthier again. She is very professional and very knowledgeable. She knows curly hair!!! She explained how she was going to cut my hair and how she was shaping it along the way. She also explained the different curl textures that I had and what I needed to do to achieve the best style for my hair. Emma loves curly hair and it shows!!! She is awesome and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is ready to rock their natural curls!
I searched through youtube and found out about this deva cut thing. As a curly girl that wears her curly hair out 90% of the time, I knew I had to give it a try. I called Emma to make the appointment and she explained how it would work and she sent me the link to book with her. Unfortunately, something went wrong in my booking process because I showed up for the appointment I had booked and she had no record of it. I truly believe it was a computer glitch. However, Emma apologized that it even happened (even though it wasn't her fault) and made some room in her schedule for me to come back the following week. I LOVE my cut!!! I even love that Emma is NOT scissor happy. She heard me when I said, "I want to keep my length". After the initial cut, wash and finalized cut, we talked about cutting some more for shape purposes and I really learned to trust her eye. She also talked with me about the products. I ended up buying some products, although she wasn't a product pushing bully. She also answered questions through text messages following my appointment regarding more questions about my hair care with the Devacurl products. The atmosphere is so much nicer than your typical salon where 5 people are waiting to be seen, 2 people are under the dryer, and 1 more person is in the chair and you spend your entire day at the salon. After 7 years of taking a break from hair salons and stylists, I can't wait to return later in the year!
Artist! A true Artist! I recommend all those in the exclusive curly hair gene pool to have a Deva Cut! It was first experience with the dry cut and it was the best ever! I’m even taking my daughter! Emma rushes nothing! You pay for your time with her and she make sure she is dealing with you as though it was her own head of hair. She patient and respectful on top of that. Her eye is amazing! I can’t wait to bring more friends and family to this phenomenal I have encountered!
I debated about writing this review but I think it’s so unfair.. The lady that review me was not a Deva Curl Service... . She booked a big chop service.. She came in saying that she have been transitioning for 3 years. I washed the hair and the hair was full of stretch damage hair from braiding and sewing up for years and heat damage as well. I showed her exactly where I will be cutting.. and we both verbally agreed. I also said ma’am if you’re not ready don’t do it. It’s no benefit for me to cut off someone hair and have them extremely sad. I love to see smiles and happiness. I explain to her the damage she had and also the process of getting her texture to a healthy state and best regimen. We agree and proceeded to cut! The cut was perfect, the texture was the issue which was explain before cutting. We cried together because I know the big chop service is a dramatic change! So I feel the emotion of the client. I’m a honest caring stylist and I think it’s unfair to write review on emotions and not the truth!
Emma is AMAZING!!
Emma's skills are beyond amazing!! She truly transformed my curls! I hands down give her the highest recommendation. I will not trust any other stylist with my curls. Every time I go, she makes my Deva Cut experience incredible and definitely worthwhile!
The absolute BEST Devacurl Sylist in the Houston area
I absolutely LOVE Emma. She has been taking care of my hair for the past 7 months and I couldn't be more pleased. She's not only professional, but she's personable, and warm spirited. My hair has never felt better and is healthier than it's ever been. Emma's cancellation policy is similar to many other stylists. When a client fails to cancel their appointment, they are charged for that appointment. A stylist has every right to charge full price when their time has been wasted. Styleseat is quite easy to navigate. It notifies the client of the cancellation policies and sends notifications to the client up to the time of the appointment. Booking with Emma will be the best decision that you make on your journey to beautiful and healthy hair.
Charged for a mistake
So I made an appointment a few weeks ago & was so excited! Unfortunately I had to go to a doctors appointment & had to cancel my services. I'm unfamiliar with style seat & I thought I had cancelled all 3 of my appointments but in fact, I had only cancelled 2. I was unaware of this. Ms. Ross texts me the morning of my appointment asking where I am. I'm confused because I thought I had cancelled my appointment. She then tells me that no, i still had one appointment active. After checking on my end, I realize that she was correct & I apologized. After I sent this text explaining the situation, she billed me the entire $100 fee. I was stunned. I had obviously made a mistake, which I admitted to. I could even understand a $50 cancellation for for the inconvenience but $100??? I of course let her know that I would be giving a review of my experience to which she informed me to go ahead, that she has these text exchanges as proof. Proof of what? Obviously I had made a mistake & she chose to charge me full price instead of being a little understanding. She then asked if I was still coming in for my appointment. Seriously???? This woman is a crook & I stand by that. She might do good hair, but you risk being overcharged or billed if you fail to navigate the booking site incorrectly. I'm in the process of disputing this charge & am even thinking of taking her to small claims court. Be warned.
Love at first Deva Cut
Emma is the truth! I got my first Deva Cut by her today and I am loving it. Finding a new hairstylist.... let alone trying a new type of haircut had me feeling nervous, but Emma makes you feel welcome as soon as you walk through her door, within minutes of me sitting in the chair she had me laughing and feeling at ease. She listened to me when I described what I didn't like about my hair as well as how I usually styled it. Then she brought the scissors out and OMG I could see my curls being brought back to life with every twirl and snip. After she washed and styled my hair... I couldn't stop swinging it around it's so bouncy and soft! We have a plan to get my hair exactly how I want it and I will definately only come to her from now on. I drive from the Woodlands and it is WORTH IT to have someone like Emma in my hair.
Emma is EXCELLENT
I've been searching for a new stylist since I moved from St. Louis 10 years ago. I've been returning to St. Louis at least once a year for my hair cuts. That can finally stop. Emma knows how to cut curls and style them. She did a wonderful job. My hair is very curly, but thin on the top and sides. The cut she gave me added enough volume my thinning is less obvious. Th most amazing part is everything is even! I highly recommend her.
Where do I start!! Emma is the best! I was totally scared walking in, She assured me everything will be ok and I will love the outcome. And that exactly what happened, I LOVE the outcome.. She explained the whole process assuring me that I will receive exactly what cut I desired. The end results was absolutely great! I love my curls again, I don't have to pull my hair in a bun again. I have shape. Thank you Emma
I recently moved to Houston and was in need of a stylist who knew the ends and outs of being a natural girl. I was so nervous about my appointment, but I went ahead because my hair was in need. Emma was truly a gift from God. She knows hair, knows products, and is good at what she does. I read the reviews and only noticed one negative review about the cancellation policy. Not trying to be rude, but the program used for booking informs you of your services and fees associated with canceling your appointment. Please don't allow one negative oversight of a client rob you of your biggest hair blessing. Emma knows her stuff, listens to her clients, and provides details based on your hair and not what is trending. She's the best!!
Emma was amazing!!! My hair (3b) needed TLC and Emma did just that and explained everything straight to the point. My hair was super long and I wanted to go short. She accomplished that and I love! I know every detail on how to continue to style my hair. She has a customer for life and I promise I will not wait 1 year for a cut!
Loving my curly hair!
I was so happy to find Emma and even happier to have found a place that I can get my hair cut close to Sugar Land. It amazes me that in a city as big as Houston that there are so few places that specialize in curly hair. I was desperate to get my hair cut and after searching everywhere, I came across Emma in the DevaCurl website. I am so glad that I did. She did an amazing job. I have looser curls, so my hair tends to form a massive blob if it is not properly cut. Emma did a wonderful job in shaping my hair so that my hair style has shape and my curl remain bouncy but defined. While the Devacut is more expensive than a traditional cut, I feel it is worth it for the time and attention that is required to get a well defined curly shape.
She saved my curls!
I went to Emma for the first time and she was so great! I hadn't had a haircut in almost a year and there was some damage from past coloring. She was so knowledgeable! She told me about my kind of curls and what I was doing wrong to them and how to correctly take care of them. She gave a beautiful cut that got rid of the damage parts and waterfalled beautifully! By the end of the appointment, my curls had revived and looked like it did when it was in a healthy state. She was thorough and kind. I will definitely be going back!
Best haircut of my life
I cut my hair drastically today for the first time in a long time and it was the first haircut I've ever had that I LOVE. Usually I leave salons in tears because the cut ends up awful. Today I left confident and proud to rock my new cut. Emma is the best and I refuse to go anywhere else from here on out. I can't stop staring at my fantastic new cut and the curls are screaming hallelujah!! Hands down best haircut experience! She knows every curly girl hair texture. Highly recommend her to all of my friends. Not to mention, she is the absolute sweetest and her spot is so relaxing! Go book now! Trust me, your curls will THANK YOU!!
DevaCut & Pintura Highlights
I am so thankful I found Emma! She is the BEST at what she does, from cutting to coloring! Emma has made me feel comfortable and beautiful since day one. I will never go to anyone else ever again! She lets you know what your curls need and what you need to do to achieve your curl goals. She is patient and make sure you are leaning with a smile. I have gotten 2 DevaCut’s already and it just keeps getting better and better!
I have always had frizzy what I believed to be wavy hair. For the last 13 years my solution to the frizz has been to straighten out my hair. I finally decided to embrace the waves and make the ultimate commitment, get a DevaCut. Enter Emma, she has changed my life and my hair all within 90 minutes. I LOVE my curls now, because after her haircut I have springy bouncy curls. It's a bit shorter than I expected so it's taking me a little long to really figure out how to style it on my own but it's healthy and it looks thicker than it ever has. If you're in the area and looking for someone to give you a Devacut, you have found her. She is sweet, brilliant, and will make your haircut experience one to remember.
Perfect curl session.. She was patient and calm in explaining everything about my curls and the best cut for me.. My hair is curly and fine and she gave me volume I haven’t seen in awhile. Very Professional and her salon was relaxing.
Emma was very patient with me she listened to my concerns and most importantly she asks questions and educate her clients.Emma went out her way to give me the best service. I was amazed that she followed up with me the next day. I've never had a stylist to follow up with me. Very informative about educating me on the do's and don't of curly hair. I will be returning to Emma, she is amazing
Emma is the absolute BEST!!
I used to go all the way to Los Angeles to get my hair done, but now that I have found Emma, I have someone who can take care of my curls close to home. The fact that she uses all of of the Deva Curl products I use is an extra plus. I love her ability to trim and not cut too short, and I love how hydrated my and my sons' hair is after Emma takes care of it.
I loved how Emma took care of my hair. She took her time and made my damaged hair beautiful. She gave lots of tips for me to better treat my hair at home and recommended that I stay away from the flat iron as much as possible. I will definitely be going back for another deva cut!
I’m been to Emma numerous of time for a cut! And every time it’s excellent! She is patient and very explanatory to what is going on why she cut! She never cut off what you don’t desire. I read the lady review under me .. and I’m in disbelief of what she is saying. Some people can write reviews on emotions and not the truth! This lady is awesome! I hope that review do not stop you from meeting an awesome people and a great stylist!
Emma is awesome! I received an amazing deva cut. I went to Emma to do something that I had never done before, chop all of my 3C hair off into a cute taper and start over. I have received nothing but compliments since my transformation. I felt very comfortable with Emma. She is very knowledgeable on how to cut natural hair and natural hair products. An overall great experience from start to finish!
My curls are back
Love my curls and love Emma. She is incredibly knowledgeable about curly hair and really explains everything. I left loving my haircut but a few days later felt that it wasn't as short as I wanted it. I was very impressed that Emma was able to see me the same day and fixed it exactly to my liking. Will definitely be coming back. I finally found a curly hair master that I've been searching for for years.
Best haircut ever! From the time I walk in she was warm and kind. She explained the devacut to assure this is the cut I desire, halfway through the cut I see my curls changing. And the finish results was amazing!! She explain products and how to use them, she is the BEST!
Emma's skills are second to none! I went in with waist length hair and came out with the exact short, tapered cut I showed her. She took her time and understood right off what I wanted. I am 100% pleased. Her set up is beautiful and relaxing. I will be back.
I had 3 years of new growth and left with a dry shapeless twa. She shows you her highlight reel but not her failures. I cried in the chair and so did she. The cut was so bad every one kept asking me "So what are you going to do?" Every time someone ask I want to cry all over again...
Flexi Rod/Two Strand Twist
I don't think they come any pickier than me - with that being said I'm SO GLAD I found Emma! She is great at what she does, professional, and always truthful to encourage healthy hair. I read a review on her cancellation policy; I've personally never had any issues with cancelling as long as it follows her 24 hour policy (which is stated at check out). Best part about her suite is you're not waiting hours to be seen - she's incredibly prompt!
Best Cut Ever
Where can I start!! Best experience! Emma was was waiting for me upon arrival with a warm greeting.. No WAIT! She proceeds with explaining the deva Cut and and what are my desire. And boy!! Did she deliver.. my cut was amazing, exactly what I was looking for and my curl was POPPING!! Thank you Emma ! You are amazing!! Thank you for being patient with me because I had a lot of fear entering ❤️ Thank you again !
Pure joy over my cut !! She gave exactly what i wanted... She made this experience awesome !! I was afraid but she have so much confidence in her craft that it made feel calm.. Thank you Emma for boosting my confidence!
Best cut ever!!!
Before the hair appointment, my hair was was an unmanageable ball of frizz with a few curls here and there. I believed that there was no hope. That is until I found Emma! She transformed my hair into a beautiful work of art. Her service was wonderful and she was really knowledgeable about everything. I would definitely recommend Emma to anyone wanting to transform their hair as well!
I can't say enough great things about Emma. Besides being an awesome hair stylist and the best at cutting hair, she's undeniably professional and just a fun, easy person to talk to. Despite the thoughts of other reviewers, her cancel/refund policies are clearly stated on StyleSeat and very easy to navigate. I have had nothing but positive experiences with Emma and always look forward to my upcoming appointments. If you're looking for a hairstylist who's professional, fair, and organized in addition to being a stylist who is not only committed to taking care of your hair and making you look and feel bomb, Emma is your girl.
I went in for highlights and everything went perfectly. Emma is very detailed and will explain everything thoroughly. She'll have a mandatory color consultation with you to make sure your hair is in the right condition to get highlights and will take the time to show you various hair colors that you want. She's patient and extremely informative. I loved the outcome.
A great Service
Excellent cut and customer service. Clean and relaxing salon. I told her what I desired and she expedited. I didn’t have to wait a lengthy time to get service. Great great lady!
Outstanding service! This was my first time getting a Deva Cut and the result was amazing. Very professional. I haven't like my hair in a long time but now I love it and enjoy wearing my hair down, I always pulled my hair in a high bun. She taught me on how to use the products to be able manage my hair from week to week. Thank you Emma!! My curls are so plump now
Emma did an amazing job bringing my dry, dead, curls back to life. She is so sweet and welcoming and gives an explanation to her techniques. Visiting her for my hair needs was well worth the investment!
She was truly amazing. Her fingers worked magic through my hair. 12/10 recommend. She was so sweet and really made me feel so beautiful. She 100% encourages natural curly hair and it was the best experience I have had!
When I made my appointment, I was hoping beyond hope that Emma would be able work a miracle on my 2A/B hair. I came in with pretty good waves up front and hardly any in the back. By the time Emma was finished, you could actually tell my hair was wavy from the back! I was ecstatic with the results. I can't recommend her enough!
Best Experience EVER! (2C/3A Wavy/Curly Hair)
Before my appointment with Ms. Emma I was a little bit skeptical and anxious. I had had a Deva Cut before at a specialty place in Houston and it was not worth the huge chunk of change I had dished out for it. But this experience totally changed everything! Ms. Emma was super sweet and informative. She listened to what I wanted, but also offered her professional opinion. She convinced me to cut off more than I had originally wanted, but the end result was absolutely fabulous! Such God-given talent! I went in with flat, badly shaped, unhealthy, and undefined curls/hair and came out with healthy, bouncy, voluminous hair. Totally worth every penny. I will definitely be returning! Best curly hairstylist in town and a blessing to the curly hair community!
"Blessed to meet Emma! My first deva cut today 03/29/2017 & I love it! Emma's skills are amazing and she is very professional. She took her time and explained the diva cut to me. It is so nice to have a stylist who can cut curls. It is nice to know I never have to have my kinks and coils blow dried (fried) to get a cut. Emma styled my hair with deva curls products which were light weight and left my coils hydrated & defined. "
Sweet Curly Cut
Emma was awesome!! This was my first time going to a deva curl specialist and now I'm wondering why I waited so long!!!! I wish I would've found her along time ago! She cut my curls into an actual shape and educated me on the right way to take care of my curls! She answered all of my questions without hesitation. I'm eager to see the growth of my hair/curls on this journey with Emma! Very happy customer!
Emma was wonderful! She was so accommodating to my needs and schedule for my hair appointment. I had balayage done to my hair 5months ago which caused my curls to become dry and damaged. Emma brought my curls back to life! My hair is so soft from the NoPoo hair libe products. I can go 3 days without washing since she taught me how to proper care for my hair and curls. I'm definitely a client for life!
I love the way my hair came out. Not only did Emma give me the cut and volume I had asked for
Emma did an amazing job explaining every technique and answering all the questions I had. My hair looked dull and had little volume on the top. She brought my curls back to their bouncy life. I am absolutely in love with my hair and I could not have done it without Emma! Thank you so much Emma!
I've never let anyone cut my hair before. I loved the results. I can't stop smiling. She was nice, knowledgeable, and professional. She taught me so much about my own hair. She made my hair manageable and my styles are coming out better. Definitely recommending her to friends and family.
Where do I start! Emma is amazing, my fine, frizzy, dry curls she brought to life! As she cut I see a beautiful shape appearing before my eye. She is calm and passionate at what she does. The end result was amazing! My curls was so plump and bouncy and full. Emma is the best, you will not be disappointed. She is a artist!!

If possible, please either whatsapp or email me at +51937537130 or [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) Thank you so much!!
Emma was the best! Very patient, professional and knowledgeable! I was nervous to cut my hair and she made me feel so comfortable. Not to mention, I LOVE MY DEVA CUT! Thank you, you are truly gifted.
Very professional and patient... She let me explain all my different bad experience which had so afraid to try anyone new. She told be when can start off with a certain amount and if you desire more it wouldn’t be a problem to take more! It was the most calming experience. She delivered exactly what I wanted and explained how to use all product that was needed for my hair! Emma is the complete best! I sooooo glad I found her !! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Emma's scissor wizardry turned my mad-scientist frizzball into an actual hairstyle. She understood what to do to make the most of my 2AB&C
First Deva Cut
Where do I start! This was the best experience, I walked scared and left out full of confidence! Emma turn my dry frizzy curls to a hydrated bouncy plump curls!! I can't thank her enough. This was my first DevaCut and she is awesome! Thanks Emma
This was my first time getting a hair cut to style my hair curly. I have a very tight coily hair pattern (3c/4a/4b) and opted to do a "Curly Cut" which is on wet hair after being washed, conditioned, and detangled. Emma was very thorough at asking what I did to my hair and what I wanted. It was a great experience and will most definitely be going back!
She is the truly THE curl whisperer!
Emma brought my curls back to life with the curl cut. She was very thorough and attentive to my hair as well as what I wanted from the experience. I was in very good hands. She was informative on the products she was using and during the cutting process. I truly cannot rave more about my experience and her work. My curls have NEVER bounced this way before! Everyone should be coming to her!

The best Cut ever!!! She patient, knowledgeable and SWEET!! My cut was everything I️ was hoping for! I’m so happy and please! Will be returning ❤️❤️
Happy to See My curls again
I showed up today with my hair straight with dehydrated dried ends. We discussed my hair technique and then she started right away with the Dry DEVA cut. After the cut I was ready for my hair wash. That to me was the best part. Having your hair washed by Emma was sooo relaxing! I then went to the tunnel dryer and tried my best not to fall asleep in the hair tunnel. But was very hard not to. It was so relaxing being there. Once I came out of my hair sleep. I was ready for the blow dry. As it turned out my hair still has waves and curls. It was so beautiful I wanted to scream...LONG LIVE THE CURLS. Its a blessing to have curling hair and I am glad to have my DEVA hair cut by Emma. Thank you Emma for restroing my faith in curly locks again! YOUR AWESOME. Oh and I almost forgot to mentioned she did all this on a Sunday. This worked out great with my busy schedule. Book your appointment she books up fast!!! In the end, I left with my hair and faith restored that my curls do exist.
Best Shape ever! She is patient and very caring when dealing with your curls! I scared to get the cut but she made the process smooth !! Loving my curls again! I’m so happy I found her! Deva Cut are the way for all curly girls!
FIRST hair cut ever
My first deva cut experience was amazing and I can not recommend this hair cut enough! This was actually my first cut ever on my natural hair, so I was extremely nervous walking in. My hair had little to no curl in most area's due to heat damage. It had been damaged for a few years now and i finally got enough courage to finally get my dead ends cut. Emma made me feel very comfortable and asked my opinion before cutting anything, and when I tell you she worked wonders to my hair!! I am very excited to finally start my natural hair journey!! My curls were poppin!!! I will most definitely be back to Emma in the future!
First of all let me say that finding a stylist to really take care of natural hair is no easy feat in Houston, Texas. I’ve been to the big name, flagship curly salons in NYC and LA. You know the ones. And let me tell you, Emma is a curly + kinky girl’s dream, hunni! This #curlyangel will go far beyond your expectations. Not only is she PROFESSIONALLY trained and meticulous in her work, she has a heart of gold! I’m so obsessed with her and her #curlymagichands that when my 16-year-old YCQ (Young Curly Queen) decided to shed her curly mane, there was NOONE else I trusted to help her peel back another layer of her brilliant self. This was not just a hair cut y’all. This was a #curlyrevial!! We laughed! We danced! There were tears of joy as we witnessed the becoming of a Queen. Thank you, thank you for being a vital part of my girl’s self-care + self-love. Ps. This is so not a paid or bartered endorsement. This chic is just the truth y’all! If you’re serious about taking care of your curly + kinky mane, head on over to Emma. I’ll be there in about 2 weeks for my twist-out ;o).
