Need a curly haircut? Check out this amazing curl transformation.
We know the horrors of a bad curly cut, and so many of our readers ask for haircut advice daily. So when NaturallyCurly contributor Claire Aviles was in need of a trim, she documented her experience for us to see her transformation.
What is a Deva Cut?
The Deva Cutting technique is a technique used by the Devachan Salon for cutting curly hair. Curly hair is cut in its natural form: dry, not wet. Each curl is individually shaped and the style is based on the individual. You even get a personal curl care lesson before you go!
You don't have to live in NYC to get a Deva Cut. "Deva Inspired Stylists" work all over the country. You can find one by going here and entering your zip code.
The Devachan Salon Experience
I walked into Devachan Salon with high expectations, especially knowing that I would be working with Denis DaSilva, Devachan’s Brazilian-born co-owner. He began cutting hair in his mother’s salon at age thirteen and studied with stylists and colorists in Spain, France, and England before coming to Devachan in 1995.
The posh SoHo salon was packed with clients of all curl types. I had never seen so many happy, naturally curly women in the same place! The atmosphere was amazing and I immediately knew that my experience would be too.
