I did check yelp -- but I'm so nervous to try someone new that I wish they had more than 3 positives for their Deva cut.
I know that it's 'just' hair and will grow -- but it takes me forever to find someone I like. And it took me a long time to break away from a stylist that I realized wasn't 'getting' my hair (though she herself is a curly) -- she ALWAYS blow dried my hair straight -- which I liked at the time but once I asked her to style it curly -- a trainwreck. I realized my hair never looked good when I did it myself. It took me a while to really start in with CG -- I read a lot and finally just ordered stuff from CM -- now I am so much happier to see my curls again -- I thought my hair had just changed with getting older/hormones (well I think it has some) -- but my curls are actually still there now that I'm treating them right! In my 20's early 30's I could use anything and my hair always looked great. Now I see how much it really needs conditioner and how much more life it has now that I have changed my products.
Sorry for the long story! Anyhow I just tend to want the 'sure thing' so I'm trying to decide if it's worth the leap for me to get to stay in my town rather than travel about 40 minutes and pay more -- but for someone that was a more known entity for me given all the reviews/feedback.
