sapphire,

i understand your wanting to have a specialized devachan curly cut, but please know that isnt the only option. in my experience w cuts, ive found that ethnic salons get the job done...without the $$$$. ive had great luck w egpyptian, dominican, puerto rican, even indian salons/stylists because they're used to dealing w naturally curly hair. just wanted to point out that you have options
