Jessie - Meticulous Perfection

Rating
by Emily on JUNE 12, 2018

I have to just write a review here for Jessie. Everyone in the salon was very sweet, but Jessie was my stylist. I gave her a very vague idea of what I wanted with my hair; I had pictures but I hadn't been in a salon in a long time and wound up forgetting to show them to her. Even without a photo reference, she took what I told her and gave me lovely blended layers, with some short enough on top that I can fade them in with my other hair, or pin them back a bit to be bangs. She did the standard DevaCut method: dry preliminary cut with no product in your hair, then a secondary cut after drying your newly washed and conditioned hair. However, she KEPT perfecting my hair literally until I left the studio. She seemed to have a lot of fun with my hair, and I had a lot of fun letting her! I would definitely recommend her (and TJs overall.)

I love my curly hair!

I had help in finding the right hairstylist to try after many frustrating bad 'curly' cuts. No one listened when I explained my hair problems, so I've been scared to go to salons. It's been over half a year and my hair was overdue ( weighed layers of a mess) I took a chance to see Karen and REALLY happy I did! She listened to my concerns and was careful with my thick hair. She fixed my mix of curls and made my hair so bouncy and light. I had shape and curl definition! She worked magic and I will definitely visit again. Ask for Karen and be amazed at how your curls are brought back to life. Karen changed my hate of my hair to love. I want more people to feel the same as I did looking at their Deva cut curls.

Thank you Karen!

I went to TJ’s today super nervous of cutting my long curly hair and let me tell you, Karen did not disappoint! From start to finish she was amazing and thanks to her I LOVE my new hair! With Devacurl my hair now has a great shape and my curls look healthy, soft, and shiny! I’m glad I now have a new hair stylist here in Alexandria. Thank you again Karen!

Great cut and service!

I got a really great Devacurl cut by Karen; she was incredibly nice, professional and thorough with me. She really took good care of me and my curls and gave me a great cut. She showed me step by step how to apply the products to get the best results. Would definitely recommend Karen :)

Karen is awesome and amazing!

Karen is fantastic!!! I definitely recommend Karen as a Deva Curl hair stylist at TJ's Hair Studio. She has been cutting my hair using the Deva cut and my curls are now defined and shaped. I also love the Deva Curl products Karen uses on my hair. Karen has taught my how to handle my very curly hair no matter the season - winter, spring, summer or fall...no more frizzy hair. Karen is wonderful!

Embrace your curls

I must have been the last person to hear of a diva curl hair cut. After doing some research and checking reviews, I made an appointment with Karen. This is when my life changed. I always looked at my curls as a curse..until now. From the moment I walked in, I was given Karen's undivided attention. She took her time explaining the cut and assuring me that I would not be let down. She was right..4 hours later, a diva cut, and color..I looked and felt like a million bucks. This experience was eveything to me. I genuinely enjoyed my time at TJ's. I will absolutely be returning. Thank you for helping me embrace this beautiful mess of hair I was blessed with!

My curls are so healthy!

Service Received: DevaCut
Price: $126-$175

I had a previous stylist who I thought used the Deva Method, but she really didn't do a great job on my hair. Karen, though I was nervous, really brought my curls back to life and gave my hair shape again. I will admit, it was shorter than I expected, but after seeing her before and after she took of my hair, I was really pleased with just how happy my hair was. I will be going back to Karen again soon.

I found Karen through reviews and I am so glad ! she did a great job! My curls look amazingly better than ever! She is highly experienced with deva curls! I am so happy with my hair. I only recommend her and I decided that she is my new hair stylist. Also, had her do my color and highlights, I must say she did amazing. She picked the perfect colors for my skin tone. She was very detailed with my hair. This amazing experience only took 2 1/2 hours. Which is not bad at all. It looks like she worked on my hair all day!

Karen is a curl expert!

I saw Karen at TJ's for my first Deva cut last weekend. She took her time at the beginning of my appointment to know what I was looking for and how much time I had to dedicate to my hair with my lifestyle. She was so so patient, I have a LOT of thick curly hair and I was amazed how she took her time to cut strand by strand to make sure the cut had the perfect shape. She educated me on products and the best styling techniques for curly hair. She also did great coloring my hair. She has a great personality also and we chatted away which was a plus. I've gotten the Ouidad cut for years but I have to say I'm a deva girl now. The cut is really great and makes my curls look great! Thanks so much Karen, you are the best!

I LOVE ❤️ thank you Karen

This is my second DevaCut with Karen and she knows curls! She has patiently tamed my thick locks and educated me on how to care for them on my own. I now wear my hair down a lot more and embrace my curls!

GREAT

Karen is the real deal. Moved down from NYC about a year ago, and my cut with Karen was on par with the cuts I got at the Devachan salon in SoHo. Will be returning.

It was my first time coming to TJ’s Hair Studio and I had Karen as my stylist. She has a great personality and really cares about meeting your needs. Karen did the Devacurl transformation and my curls look amazing!

After many "box" hair cuts from my mom... I decided I needed a mega hair change. I started researching DevaCurl Cut and decided to try it. After looking through many reviews I decided to go Karen. I am always so nervous about someone cutting my hair but Karen talked me through everything and made me really comfortable! We talked before I even sat in the chair. She asked me about my hair and what products I use and really listened to what I was looking for in my cut. She explained everything she was doing and gave me an abundance of knowledge about how to treat my curls. She truly loves what she does and she did an amazing job!! I will definitely be going back to see Karen for upkeep. I absolutely love how my hair came out!! The shape of my curls has never been better!!! Thank you Karen!!!

Wonderful!

I saw Karen who did an amazing job with my hair! I had let it grow out because we were in the middle of a move so it was pretty long & shapeless. She took her time to not only bring my curls to order, but to educate me as well. She truly did an outstanding job and my curls look wonderful!

Great job!

I love my deva curl cut! Karen did a fantastic job! She spent so much time on me. She explained everything and showed me ways to make my curls look frizz free and gorgeous. I have gone 30 years hating my curly hair. Now I love it. Best hair cut and best products I have ever used

I love my cuts with Karen!

I have been going to see Karen for years, and I would highly recommend her - especially for CURLY hair and coloring! No one can cut and style my hair like she does, and I get tons of compliments after a cut. She always listens to my ideas, and even when I'm not sure what I want, she gives me GREAT recommendations and I always leave HAPPY! I love Karen and will always trust her with my hair!

Hidden Gem - Allie

by Aurelia on MARCH 24, 2017

I recently moved from NJ, where I had been getting Deva cuts for several years. Looked here and found TJ's, which is I. A strip mall near me. I was set up with Allie. It was amazing. I was afraid because I did not see her on TJ's web site, and I saw she really didn't have many clients that day. My fears were completely unfounded. She understands curly hair and took the time to see how my curls fall and the best way to cut them. After she was done, she had me flip my hair in different directions to make sure it falls right.

Awesome!

I got my first ever Devacut with Karen yesterday, and I love it! My curls look amazing, and everyone at the salon was incredibly friendly! If you have curly hair, I'd highly recommend coming to this salon. I've already made my next appointment!

Don't go

PLEASE don't go see Karen. She ruined my hair by giving me these awful little bangs. Bangs that I did not ask for, nor did she tell me she was going to cut. I HAD been growing my hair out for the past 6 months, but after the terrible cut I recieved, I had to cut it all off and start again. Why she gave me 2 inch bangs, when I was getting a my layers evened out, I don't know. Also spent 30+ minutes trying to sell me products even though I was clearly not interested. If I could give a zero, I would.

Karen's haircuts are wonderful!

I'm so happy I found Karen! I've never been so happy with my curly hair. She spends time talking to me and explaining how to reproduce the fabulous results at home. I've never had a stylist as great before. I highly recommend her to anyone with curly hair!

Would not recommend

I went to see Karen, after reading good reviews. She spent most of the appointment trying to sell me products and ruined the shape of my hair by giving me bangs. My hair doesn't curl until it's long enough, so the bangs were straight. I've been growing my hair out for 6 months and I had to cut it off and start over. Wish I had gone to another salon.

Best haircut in my life!

I absolutely recommend Karen at TJ's for a DevaCut! She took the time to teach me what cut is best for my curls, how to wash, dry, and style my hair to have defined curls and body without the frizz! This was honestly the best haircut I've ever had in my whole life. I've always had to straighted my hair to be able to wear it down but now I wear my curls down and proud! Karen made me love my curls again!

Amazing!

Where have you been all my life? I love DevaCut but wasn’t happy with my stylist from another salon. After doing some research, I found Karen. BEST CUT AND STYLE EVER!! Karen took the time to understand my hair from my perspective and then began the process of educating me about my curls. She took the time to build trust and explained everything she was doing. It doesn’t take long to figure out that Karen loves what she does. Her passion and authenticity is refreshing which went a long way in making me feel comfortable both with her and in the salon. She is an amazing professional and one more thing, did I tell you how much I love my hair? I booked my next appt before walking out the door. Thank you Karen! You’re an angel!!

Karen did a wonderful job !

Karen did a fabulous job on my devacurl cut and no-poo transformation. She took her time on my consultation she asked me what products I was using and styleing my hair so she can recommend the right products for my hair. I have to admit it was strange to have my hair cut dry and in a strange way she cut each individual curl...but when I saw the end result I was sooo happy! When she was finished with the cut my hair was puffed she took me back to shampoo my hair with no lather cleanser that was very strange to me. She then used her styling products and then put me under a hair dryer for few minutes. Then I was offered soda and yummy treats what a great costumer service she provided me.

Karen has the Magic Hands!

Absolutely amazing! Wow, what a great experience! I was extremely nervous and scared because I've never really been a fan of my curly hair, but my stylist Karen was an absolute delight, made me feel comfortable and excited about my transformation right from the moment she introduced herself. Miss. Karen was super friendly and made me feel comfortable right away. She explained every step of the process as she was doing it, which was super helpful, because it turns out I've been using my devacurl products all wrong for the past few months! I am beyond happy with the end result, my hair is unrecognizable! Thank you Karen and the entire team for your love to my hair. I'm feeling myself!

I have extremely damaged hair from bleaching and coloring. I was happy to find a Devacurl expert near my home, and Karen has been great! She is helping me on my journey back to curly, healthy hair. She is very knowledgeable and shared many great tips with me on how to use the products, but also other no heat styling products. Although she did recommend giving me the "big chop" and I was prepared for it, she left a lot of hair for me to work with. Today was the first day I washed my hair since my visit, and my curls are already coming back! I highly recommend seeing Karen if you are interested in the Devarcurl cut or naturally curly hair.

I called up last minute today in desperation to get a devacurl cut for my 4 yo daughter. Before today, she screeched any time I came near her with a comb and had a golden, frizzy afro. Karen, who had the patience of a saint, carefully and painstakingly cut her hair to perfection whilst my daughter wriggled and whined her way through the encounter. Oh - and decided to give me a beautiful cut and blow dry while my daughter was under the dryer. This was the most pleasant experience I have ever had in a salon and recommend Karen to _everyone_ looking for a curly hair cut in the Alexandria area!
