Watch for the Upsell

Kathy|May 2, 2018
I saw Jeanaiah once for a regular haircut and she upgraded me on my next appointment to a DevaCut. My hair looked so out of shape and awkward, but I went back for a third appointment, since she told me I just needed to grow it out more and the DevaCut would help me wear my natural curl. On my 3rd visit, I ended up being serviced by the salon owner (sadly the salon is closing permanently), who gave me a great haircut, but also explained that I really didn't have enough hair to be getting a Devacut yet. It needs to grow quite a bit for a Devacut method to make sense on me apparently, due to my looser curls that just stick out everywhere when they are too short. I appreciated her not upselling me on something I didn't need, unlike Jeanaiah, who struck me as pushy the entire time I was with her. I just felt like she was so confident in what she was talking about, I took it at face value, but truly, the cut she did on me was NOT working, and I just felt terrible looking in the mirror all 6 of those weeks after she Devacut me. I'll try to find a new Deva certified stylist once my hair is longer. For now, just trimming the ends and shaping it as I grow out the curls seems the best route. Glad the salon owner was honest with me on that front. Bummer they are closing and I can't go back and see her.

No one wants to leave looking like Macy Gray

I wanted to wait until I calmed down to write this review but my hair is SO SHORT now I don't even feel like myself. This is my second devacut and my first was cutting off my heat damaged hair. I tried this salon becasue it was closer to home. Jeanaiah knew a lot about hair, just maybe not my hair type. I called the day before my appointment to ask how I should wear my hair coming in. I usually do a twist out but wanted to wear my hair in a wash and go's so I needed a better shape. I was expecting a shaping not a major hair cut. In the salon, there was a questioneer that asked what was most important to me and it was to retain length. I am a 3c/4a hair type and when I pulled my curls I had armpit length hair. When I left the salon I had a twa. I rushed home to wet my hair and restyle but that is when I realized how short my hair was. Dripping wet it's not even touching my shoulders. I am so disappointed. I had healthy hair! She did hand me a mirror and offered me to watch her cut but I didn't think that was necessary. She is certified so she should understand the curl struggle. Not to mention, I had explicitly told her what I wanted. She is the professional I just wanted her to do her thing- that was my mistake. She did not cut my hair curl-by-curl. We talked (well she talked) for a good 30 or 40 minutes before cutting my hair and was just grabbing sections and cutting. She said she cut off a 'good inch' all around but in curly girl hair, one inch of curls is about 4-5 inches in length. Plus a cut curl curls tighter so it is super short. She only applied the product at the sink and did not apply in sections like you do at home. She cut the longest part of my hair the shortest so there is no way I can wear twist outs at this length. I also had a few red flags but only in hindsight. She didn't know what pineapple-ing your hair was, she didn't know the categories of curls (3a, 4b, etc...) and she was pressing a protein treatment on me to help 'calm my busy curl pattern'. I've had a bad experience with protein treatments in the past because it changed my curl pattern and is applied to heat (a curly girl NO NO). I considered it once I realized how short my hair was only because now I can't wear my hair natural. The straightened out version of my cut is uneven (which I did expect) and barely touches my shoulders. I will just have to wear protective styles until my hair grows back. I just see that either the deva cut is not for me or I have to find a black stylist. If my hair was straight, I don't think she would have cut this much off.

Best hair experience to date

I have always dreaded haircuts and would put them off longer than I should to avoid the frustration of having the stylist not understand my hair and then leaving feeling absurd. I’m so glad I noticed a friend with some seriously lively and bouncy looking curls. She always had cute hair but this day there was a noticeable difference. I received the recommendation and it was the best decision ever! Loving my cut, the products and know I’ve found the person I will go to for all things hair moving forward. Jeanaiah is fun and energetic- you will not experience awkward small talk but really be engaged. Lots of laughing and lots of learning about my hair. She took her time, made sure I understood the process and explored products with me laying out a plan for the best way to make tweaks as we figure out my specific hair. Jeanaiah has a real talent and it is evident how much she values your satisfaction. She really wants to change the relationship women have with their hair and wants to be a part of that change. She makes it clear that she wants your feedback so you will leave happy. Great experience, highly reccomended.

I went to see Jeanaiah for a devacut. My goals for the visit were to receive education about the Devacurl method, get a trim, and get a shape up. I communicated to her-both verbally and on the intake form, that it is imperative to me that she maintain the majority of the length of the healthy, natural hair I had been growing for five years. Jeanaiah talked the entire visit. She was a poor listener. She cut off a significant chunk of my hair. The cut was shaped horribly. I had scraggly ends at the bottom of my hair and she stretched out the curls on the top of my hair. She told me that she would use the Styling Cream but instead used the Ultra Defining gel because the salon had ran out of the cream. When I asked her about the various DevaCurl products, she constantly said, "It's hydrophilic. I just took the course so I don't really know. I guess just try this." When she finished, my curl pattern was very loose. My hair was flat. Jeanaiah was unprepared. She forced the sale and did not respect my wishes. Jeanaiah did not teach me about the products. She did not cut my hair well. I was given a horrible shape. I had to go to another hair stylist who cut and shaped my hair. After all was said and done, I had lost about eight inches of healthy hair. I have never been more disappointed and disgusted. Please take her off of this site. She is harmful to the Devacurl brand. Jeanaiah also had the audacity to post after pics (she conveniently did not take before pictures) &theater;
