Default Deva Cut - worth it if you can only get one?

I am toying with the idea of making an appointment with a deva certified stylist while I am visiting Washington, DC in July. I live in a relatively rural area, and there are no curly specialists close by me. I think the closest is probably a good 4 hour drive.

My question to those of you who have had this type of cut, will it be worth it for me to get one Deva Cut? I most likely will NOT be able to get back to a deva stylist with any regularity.

I know Banjocurl usually gets her hair cut at Devachan only 1 x year. I don't think I could wait a whole year before getting my hair cut again. I usually can only make it 3 months before I feel I need to go back.

Any thoughts?

Good question! I've only had the one cut this last time, so I don't know if I'd be able to get another stylist to follow the cut or not. So far, it's been about 13 weeks since my cut and it's still looking good, so I don't plan to cut again soon. But I don't know how long it will last.

I had mine cut about a month ago and don't like the way it is growing out. I keep seeing pictures before the cut and wish I had my long layers back. I think with this type of cut it is something you would have to maintain.

I would say it's definitely worth it! I love how my hair grows out from them and I've been 4 times (sometimes once a year, or 8 mos.)

The experience itself of being there is amazing!
I love it there. Any chance I get, I would go!

Has anyone straightened their hair after a Deva cut? Does it look weird? I need a good curly cut now that summer is here but I'll sometimes straighten my hair if the weather isn't too muggy/humid. I'm afraid if I get a Deva cut I won't be able to do that.

Brio, go for it!! I definitely recommend it, even if you can't have it maintained in the same way. I think it's actually fairly easy to maintain it yourself for a while afterwards because even though I used to exclusively have mine cut that way in the States, I don't have anyone like that here in Sweden, and it's coming up 2 years since I last had my hair cut in a salon. I've just been trimming it myself by cutting the individual strands.

Thanks, all!!! I'm really leaning toward giving this a try. I just have to figure out how to break the news to my husband that I'm going to drop about $80 or so for a haircut!

mrfhnl, unfortunately, I won't be able to go to Devachan. I'll be in DC, but I do see on the Devachan site that they do have some Devachan certified stylists in DC. I'm thinking about trying a place called "Fiddleheads." I think they have two deva certified stylists. I've also been advised to make sure to tell them specifically I want a deva cut. I guess these folks do traditional cuts, too. The comments and reviews I have read on this salon are, for the most part, positive.

I wish my top layer wasn't so short right now The most recent cut I got about 3 or so weeks ago didn't leave me with as much hair to work with.
