Default Haircut at Zeba with Steven! Updated my Photos!!

(I copied this from my blog, so it might sound a bit....narrative-y)Yesterday I finally got my haircut. Went to Zeba in Huntington and saw Steven. He was fabulous. He told me me hair was "gorgeous" and "unique." I liked that. In having hair that got me teased incessantly from grades 6 through 10, it's so refreshing to be stopped by strangers to be told they love my hair. It seemed like every stylist in the salon had to come over to touch my hair and marvel at it's curliness. But I sat there and Steven shook out my hair. It looked messy but that sexy messy that you see in ads. Then he cut it (dry!) and it started to take some shape. It just kept looking better and better. It so needed something. It was just long and hanging there and when it was dry the ends would get poufy and it'd look silly. I was wearing it up more often than not. So he shaped and shaped. He stood back and looked. It was seriously the first time since my first Deva-cut where I liked what I saw happening. We talked about food and restaurants and he was just delightful - humming along with the music playing. It was really a relaxed atmosphere, which was nice. Then off to get "washed" with Deva products; Low Poo and One Condition. He had asked me a lot about how I had my hair done last and I told him how I walked out of Deva with my hair feeling very product-y and stiff and how it took forever to get the curl back. He was shocked that that happened and promised we'd find a way to finish my hair without it getting product-y. I was Low Poo-ed and conditioned. Not as luxuriously as at Deva, but nice enough for a Saturday morning. Then back to the chair, where Steven styled my hair with Aquage gel. He was great - didn't try to push a single product on me, and told me we'd try the gel and see if it works, since he knows you never know how it'll dry, but he liked the sound of the gel, as it was botanical and should give shape and some control without stiffness. So he worked the gel in sections - not how I do my hair, but that's such a personal thing with curlies. And then he sent me on my way, after telling me that it was such a nice way to start his day doing my hair. That's just nice. I'm definitely going back. It was WAY cheaper than a Deva cut and I was completely satisfied.

Today, when I took a shower, my hair instantly clumped beautifully! It looks adorable and feels amazing. No tangles at the bottom anymore and it's just got this cute bounce to it. Photos soon - I promise!

I'm still on cloud 9 from this cut! My hair is so unbelievably soft and is clumping so amazingly. It's just beyond belief!

What a difference getting rid of the dead, tangly ends is and the layering he did just added so much shape to it.

Hooray!

Thank you!! I'm just so so happy with it too!

I've been just conditioning with Nature's Gate Herbal Conditioner. Then before I get out of the shower, I totally saturate it and put in a tiny bit of B2B Pommegranate Peach condish. Then I put in some Aussie Dual Personality Volumizer/Leave-In. Then I scrunch in some LOOB. Then plop in a microfiber while I get dressed. When I take it out I smooth in and scrunch in some HESMU gel and that's it!

Yay pictures! It looks great! Absolutely beautiful curls! It looks like the cut has helped with adding volume and curl all the way to the root, which evens out the shape nicely.
