trims/cuts...

This comes from the Lorraine M. thread since she was on the Today show this morning. Someone noticed that her curls were kind of un even and there were longer pieces in the back. Ok, so now I'm a bit worried. For those of you who get devachan haircuts/trims do you find you don't get a good even head of hair? Is it better to get the more traditional trim? So, everything comes out even??
Thurs. will be my second visit to a devachan stylist. I haven't been very happy with my hair lately. I have longer pieces of curl on the sides and way longer ones in the back. The stylist told me that I needed to allow the shorter layers grow out and then she can really even everything up. Does this sound right?
I figured I'd give her one more try and see how it goes. It's not cheap and I don't have money to waste on something I'm not happy with.
She cut a few curls but it wasn't a typical trim where they trim up all the ends.
Now, I"m getting more and more confused. IF I do end up going to someone else, how can I get them to understand that I want to grow out the shorter layers but I need ends to be kept trimmed up OR maybe I shouldn't get it cut until they grow out??
Maybe I should also post this on the growing out board.

Darby,

I'm hoping someone answers you because I have the same question. I went for my first Devachan style cut w/ a Deva trained stylist last summer and it was the most amazing cut I've ever had. My hair never looked better. The goal was to be growing it out, but the stylist told me we needed to take some out here and there for it to grow out well without the bushy look. I loved the cut! Well, when I went for a trim to the same stylist in November, the results were disasterous. She did the same thing as before, but what ended up happening to me was that the longer ends were stringy and scraggly looking, the shape I'd had was completely gone and since there were so many pieces cut out at different lengths, instead of laying closer to my head as they had with the first cut, I had the worst frizz I've ever had, comparable to the days of using sulfate 'poos!

I went home and immediately started cutting off the stragglers (which looked liked they'd just been forgotten in the cut) and have over the past two months worked myself back to a much shorter cut, but with layers that I can manage. I want the summer Deva cut, but I'm scared to death to try this again. In retrospect, I think if I'd gone to my regular old pre-Deva stylist and told him to trim up the good Deva cut, I would have ended up with what I was really wanting in November. I think two Deva style cuts in a row were not a good thing with my hair. Is there a way to ask a Deva stylist to cut once Deva style and the next time, do a regular style trim??? : )

wow. that's kind of what happened with my first deva cut. I've never had stray longer straggly looking curls before til now.
Before my first cut, there was someone leaving that just had her hair cut by the stylist and it looked real nice. So, one more chance. I'm taking in a couple of pics of past hair to show her what I want to achieve. I really don't know what to do or who to believe. She told me that the person who was cutting my hair before, made it uneven.
If she only cuts a few curls again and calls it good - I won't go back.

Good luck Darby! Let me know how it turns out, okay?
