I used to drive to MaduSalon in SF also a few years back. I was so glad I didn't have to any more when I finally found a Deva stylist is the area a couple of years ago. I've been going to Susan at "At Last Salon & Spa" in Lincoln, CA. She's been the only Deva trained and certified stylist in the Sacramento area and I've been very happy with all of my cuts with her.
Nice to hear there is now another Deva trained stylist in the area. Can't wait to hear how you it goes! Please update when you can. :-)
