First official "diva cut" results

Overall, I am pleased with the results, but sad to lose some of the length. It needed to happen though and strangest thing about hair- it always grows back (except my lasered chin hairs ;o) )

Since I'm a wavy girl, the stylist did not cut each individual curl, but she did stick with the wave pattern and opted for higher layers to add volume and eye framing. After cut, she low poo'd me with Deva low poo. No condish (since I overcondished the night before ( ) She used Angell as my only styler and scrunched in the product with a wet paper towel. After clipping up sections with about 8 jaw clips, she set me under a diffuser dryer for 40 min. Gently scrunched out the gel from the roots to break off the "crunchies" and then styled my bangs straight in the front for a different styling option.

End result was LOTS more volume and curling than I'm used to, but I did not like the Deva Angell product as I felt it made my hair look too frizzy and felt producty. Will be interested to see how the style does with my own tweaking!

By summertime, this haircut is gonna rock. That's my hope anyway

I think your hair looks lovely in those photos! I'm looking to cut mine similar when I finally get the moolah$$.

I know what you mean though. I didn't like the way they styled my hair either when I went for my cut. It was too disheveled looking.

I agree VC..looks fantabulous!!!

I agree with Deva styling..always leaves me yucky..they don't really scrunch my hair and clipping and sitting under the dryer leaves me with weirdly waving flat limp hair..that and the fact they use Deva products doesn't help.

My hair always ends up about a 2A or 1C in wave with their methods..so I just re-do..the last cut for me was fantastic..the one before that not so much

I just contacted a new Deva stylist and am hoping to go in Feb to get another cut.

That is beautiful, and as said before it already rocks - no need to wait for summer! Makes me wish we had a Deva-trained stylist around here for sure, hehe.

valcurl - your hair looks amazing!!!!

here you all are talking about cutting and I'm trying so hard to resist my temptation to cut - want my hair to grow already. I'm hoping by winter time here (which will be your summer) i will have some what decent length so I can actually play. So envious of all your beautiful hair right now.

Aiming to grow hair to waist from buzz cut - slowly but surely.
It looks so cool, makes me want to run to a Diva stylist, too!
