I've been CG for about 6 months. I decided to get a dry cut today and it was definitely worth it!
I've been trying to grow it out. When it's cut wet, the hairdresser usually takes way too much off and it shrinks up a lot when it dries. With the dry cut, I kept a lot of the length, but got all the gross ends off.

Sorry the pictures are so huge :/

Deva cuts originated with Lorraine Massey of Devachan in NYC, so you're definitely in luck. Go to the Devachan website, and under Hair Services there's a subheading "In this section... " on the left, you can choose "Meet Your Devachan Stylist. If you're familiar with Deva cuts from having read Curly Girl: The Handbook, you'll be able to tell a lot about the stylists, and how they approach curly hair.

I'm very excited because I'm going to Devachan next week to have my hair cut. I've had several Deva cuts in the past, and been much happier with them than any other cuts I've had in the past. However the stylists at Devachan get ongoing training and feedback, whereas my local Deva stylist had a course (probably one day), and I'd really like to see what a genuine Devachan cut could to for my hair, which is so ridiculously fine that it seems thin. I've been trying to grow it, but having problems with the stylist not leaving a strong enough base, so it looked straggly. (I cut that back myself last spring, and it's been much better.) A friend with similar hair got a brilliant cut from Nevila, and after watching her video on the Devachan website, I decided to book with her.
Peace,
Morgan

Wow, that is soooo amazing!
My hair looks verrry similar to your before picture, but I've never considered a dry cut because it's a lot more inconvenient and I really don't like socializing with hairdressers, oh, and it's probably a lot more money than the 20 I pay at hairmasters.. haha. But I may consider it now.
Having your hair cut by a junior stylist at Devachan, who gets ongoing training and feedback, is $70. My local Deva stylist (who, I believe, took a 1 day course) is $75. Prior to getting Deva cuts, I was going to a "master stylist" (with curly hair) who charged $45. My hair has so much jump it isn't funny, and the $20 haircuts always made me look like I'd had a bad encounter with a weedwacker.

I was having to have my hair cut every three weeks, because the master stylist's precision cuts would look ragged by then. When I switched to Deva cuts, I was immediately able to stretch that to six weeks (so I spent $5 less in those six weeks), then eight (saving $45 in that timeframe, so starting to see some real savings). At this point, I haven't had a Deva cut in about a year (so I saved $710, minus transportation to and from NYC, but get a day in the city thrown in). I have trimmed my own hair once, using the instructions in (the book and on the included DVD) Curly Girl: The Handbook, which I already had, as well as some hair shears (from Sally's) to trim split ends, so I'm not counting those costs.
Peace,
Morgan
