Personalized, warm, highly educational

Bella C. |December 17, 2019

Service Received: DevaCurl Transformation

Price: $175+

Upon arrival, Kara was extremely warm and greeted me with a hug. I felt like we already knew each other! Her space is super cozy and eclectic with a modern vibe. We started with Kara asking me about my current hair goals, how much length I wanted to keep and a little bit of hair history. She then made personalized suggestions on how she felt she could define the shape of my curly mop of hair. I was all in! As soon as she started shaping it, I immediately noticed a difference in the way my hair framed my face and how the overall shape complimented my features. I loved it already! Next up was my shampoo and conditioning lesson, followed by how to apply product in my hair and which products were best suited for my texture. Super informative! My absolute favorite part! She popped me under the dryer and then styled me to perfection. I looked immediately refreshed, refined and my curls looked so alive! I’ve been following her advice and techniques since then and I’ve been getting compliments left and right! Kara knows exactly what she is doing with curly hair and you can immediately see how much she loves her craft! 10/10 would recommend to all my curly hair friends!


Kara does curls in so many ways and every time fab

I was frustrated at my wavy/curly frizz for years, and came across devacurl after an extensive internet search for what to do with my existential crisis. Kara came up as the expert near me, and when I tried to book online, found she was booked for months. Disappointed, I went about life and a day later, she called and said she had an appointment available due to a cancelation-- I was impressed that considering how busy she is, she cares about personal attention and even from a first timer. I've been back multiple times, and each cut is fantastic, but what I value most is that she took the time to teach me how to use the products and the system so that my particular hair looks great. I'm happy with devacurl, and very satisfied that it was Kara who made it happen.


First Time Deva Curl Experience Far from Transformative

Kristen R|February 11, 2018
Booked the DevaCut experience (my 1st one ever and a let down), it was not as described on the website and did not include the "3-step" training, clips and microfiber towel or how to incorporate DevaCurl. The cut was OK, but certainly not transformative like the pics posted on the website - I got not complements and NO ONE noticed a difference in my cut. I did like the color and the fact that the dye used is free of the nasty chemicals present in most dyes. You are probably wondering why I didn't say anything during the service, I figured that maybe the teaching happened at the end of the service. Instead I was rushed through a color, rinse, dry while Kara and her assistant talked about her customer's personal lives, likes/dislikes (I would not appreciate my stylist sharing my personal info with strangers). At this point I needed to go to work, I forked over $350 (YIKES) dollars for the same service I could have received at any other salon. According the devacurl site there is supposed to be a styling and coaching session - mine consisted of a few snips, toning, coloring my roots, rinsing my hair, drying it and then handing me the bill. (cash or check only, at the rate she charges she can afford a square reader for credit cards). This was definitely anything but a Deva Curl experience. To be clear the appointment was booked on line, the Deva Cut Experience for first timers was booked, but not delivered as described. Will give it another go with another DevaCurl pro.

Kara's the best!!

I don't write reviews often, but felt it wouldn't be fair if I didnt! Kara is a wonderful Deva stylist. She is so kind and down to earth. She is very knowledgeable about curly hair. I have very tight curls and she's so excited to cut and style my curls, which is quite different from stylists I've had in the past. Where other stylist would be intimidated, Kara is not! Curly hair definitely is her passion! She's a great teacher as well and gives enough info to her clients to take care of their hair at home! I get compliments quite often about my hair cut! Give Kara a try, you won't be disappointed!!
