I've been to the same DevaCurl stylist the past 3 cuts (I go every 8-10 weeks) and as soon as I sit down she starts picking up curls and trimming the ends off. She says it's done that way so the hair is cut in its natural curl pattern. By the end my hair is a tiny bit poofy from her picking up each of the curls but It's not terrible. I also only got the 3 step Deva wash and dry done the first time. I don't see the point in paying the extra money for her to style it when I do it my own way at home. I didn't even like it the first time she did it, I went home and washed it out right away because I wanted to play with it on my own! haha.
