I had the same kind of experience this last time - whereas the first time I went I got the "standard" devachan cut (shirley temple looking curls), this last time he fluffed it up as much as possible, mussed it up and broke apart curls with his fingers, etc. Now I didn't really mind, I think having my hair look more like a fro is awesome because I struggle to get volume and it looks trendier, IMO.
Also, definitely don't alter your hair at all before going in....stretching, straightening, even heavy/elongating products......they base their cut off of what they see when you walk in, they don't restyle at all before snipping away.
