I don't want to write such a negative review but I'm nearly 9 weeks post cut and every day I look in the mirror I don't recognize myself. I waited to write my review hoping I would change my mind about the cut but sadly, it's only looking worse. My hair looks vastly different than any other cut I've ever had. I hate my hair cut from Mimi. The salon was beautiful and everyone in it was amazing, including Mimi. I just don't understand what she did to my hair; the front is long and the back is short. I have medium length loose curls. It seems like she cut the back of my hair in a bob style with the center near my neck shorter than the sides. When my hair dries, I have a triangle on my head and my pony tail looks like a triangle with a straight cut bottom. Then my front is so long, that I can't wear it down. I have to pull it back with clip on top. I look like a 16 year old mop head boy; every time I look down my curl mop falls in my face. I knew I was in trouble when the day after my cut I tried to style my hair as usual and I could not even get it curly. For about 3 weeks it looked like I pulled my hair straight while drying it. I know Mimi has a lot of curl clients who love her. I even saw one client in her chair after me. She had long hair and it looked great. Mimi just didn't do my medium length my hair any justice. I've been getting my hair cut in the NYC Broome St salon for 8 years. Due to COVID, I decided to try someone local instead of traveling to NYC. As soon as my hair is long enough to work with in the back, I'm going to NYC to get some shape back in my hair COVID or not...

I love Mimi!!

Mimi gave me a great haircut!! She got rid of my split ends, and gave me dream hair. My hair is so soft. Thanks Mimi!

So glad to be back!

Two years ago I moved from DC to Boston, and that meant saying goodbye to Mimi and her amazing cuts. I struggled to find anyone comparable in the Boston area, and as soon as I moved back to DC a month ago I scheduled a Deva Cut with Mimi. She is a true professional--listening to me discuss my problem areas and offering solutions to help maximize my curls. Not only that, she's just a great person, and after 2 years away she still remembered things about my life. I'm so glad to be back in Mimi's deft hands.

Happy Again

I needed a new curly hair expert and was open to a new look. Luckily, I found Mimi, who inspired immediate trust. She gave my curls new youth with a great cut and great advice, and didn't upsell me on color (and, in fact, helped me embrace my silver even more by sharing the new Deva book with me). The cut aged beautifully and I have since been back for a second cut.
