going in for a non-deva trim
So... We moved to a different state and I searched for a stylist here and found one deva stylist half way near me. She has done my hair twice so far. I'm due for another trim. I'm NOT impressed with her at all!! I actually went in today to get an "emergency" fix it on the sides. Kind of hard to explain but.... my hair is thin and it's layered all over but then starting above my ears all the way down to my shoulders is a handful that is not layered at all. It just hangs. So, I wanted that layered up until my next appointment for a whole head trim. It looks like she just completely missed that part on both sides. She looks at it and acts like she doesn't know what to do. Then she snips only two tiny pieces and hands me the mirror. I'm thinking... "you're kidding right??" I again tried to explain to her what I wanted to make it look evenly matched with the rest of my hair. She said, "the only way I can do that is to cut it very short." I don't buy that one bit. So I left.
So... now what??? I stopped in at my local Aveda shop where I had my color done and she had done the best job ever. I have a consultation/possible hair cut on Sat. with her. She had never heard of a deva cut and I explained it but since she never heard of it.... she didn't get it.
My neighbor goes to her and has wavy hair and said Vanessa is very good and just ask her to cut it dry and if she won't then just leave. My neighbor used to be a hair dresser and said you do have to be careful with curly hair since it's in an S form and you shouldn't stretch it out wet and just cut or it can turn out looking strange. Won't lay right.
I'm NOT good at explaining specifics to hair dressers who don't know curly hair. I'm HOPING Vanessa does! My question to some of you who don't get Deva cuts, how do they trim your hair if it's layered?? Dry,wet?? Have good results long term??
I'm scared to death and I'm sick and tired of looking for someone who can just do a half way decent job.
This deva stylist I've been going to is really on the terrible side. I don't think she knows what to do with length. She might do a decent job with really short hair and keep it all layered. But once you get length, she doesn't know what to do with it so she just leaves it long with no layering or anything.
I just went and lifted my hair up all over and it looks like underneath starting mid scalp, my hair is all one length and on top is layered. Is that normal for a deva cut???
