Hmm. Maybe I'm missing something. Are you talking about the Devachan salons in NYC? Looks to me like each of those salons have an average of 4 and 4.5 out of 5 stars (from a sizable number of reviewers)
No specifically the one in Culver City, California. You should check it out. A number of horror stories. . .
Yeah I see those who were unsatisfied have extreme stories: hair that supposedly went from shoulder length to pixie; lopsided, choppy and uneven cuts. Or that one color debacle this thread is based on.

I'm no shill for Devachan lol - I don't think they're for everyone and they have a few crappy stylists among them, like any other group of hair practitioners. But it's only fair to look at the math: there are 25 reviews listed for the Culver city salon and overall they have 4 stars. There are 4 people who gave them a bad rating, including one person who posted an unneeded response under her own review apparently so she could slip in an extra 1 star rating. There are 21 posters who gave them a fair, good or great rating. ... Those 4 extreme ratings still might reduce their patronage. I'd guess they have a PR problem brewing, especially if the percentage of negative reviews begins to increase.
