I am good with paying more for a curly stylist if I get a better hair cut. I know that this is not always the case and then I would be upset. My first Deva cut cost me $65.00 and it was a good cut. Now the rest of my cuts unless I want it styled only cost me $35.00.
I can pay $35.00 just about any salon around me except for the cheapies places where no one gets a great cut. None I have been to seem to know how to cut curly hair to wear it curly. None have been willing to cut my hair the way I wanted it. My benefit I am sure as they seemed to know that they couldnt give me a cut I would be happy with.
