Default Nashville deva trained stylist?

Hi everyone!

I just found this board and am sooo excited about it. I have struggled for as long as I can remember with my curls. I always say "I have curly hair. I need someone who knows what to do with it" yet, never, ever get a decent cut.

I keep reading about "deva" haircuts and how wonderful they are. Does anyone know of a stylist in Nashville? Or even TN?


Thanks so much!!


oh and if anyone can recommend a great syrum/gel for fixing your hair before drying it (with diffuser) I would really appreciate it. I have long, really thick hair that is of fine texture. I am always bummed that most stuff leaves your hair brittle and hard looking, instead of soft bouncy curls.

unfortunately, there aren't any Devachan trained stylists in Nasville (that I know of anyway...I've looked!!)

I've never been able to find anyone in Nashville that even realizes you cut curly hair differently.

Just couldn't ignore your post since I'm local

I haven't been able to find anyone either that is truly "Deva-trained."

The closest I've come is a lady in Donelson that I went to a couple of months ago. She cut my hair dry so she could see which way the curl would lay when it was fixed but she still shampoo'd etc. I'm 99% sure that if I asked her to not style my hair, she wouldn't have a problem with it. (And she only charged me $25.00.) But, again, she's not really Deva-trained.

Have you looked at the Salon Locator?
Let us know if you find anyone! (and good luck!)

Are you CG or not so much?

As far as CG and products, I just ask them not to use shampoo or bring my own. I'm allergic to fragrance, so I use that as an excuse rather than explaining CG. I don't want to act like I think I know more about their profession than they do

Shampoo irritates me horribly too so I just throw that at them too.
I just wondered for the serum/gel rec.

Default im back!

thank you for the responses!
I had looked at the salon locator and did not find anyone listed for TN at all.

I have the same problem with haircuts. They all cut it wet even though I spell out that I have curly hair and say what troubles I have with finding stylist to fix it. It's always sad when they say "OH YEAH! I can do that..." then they cut, color and try to style curly and it looks limp and sad. Most of the time I end up asking them if I can do it myself. When I see them pull out a brush, I know Im not coming back. I dont even own a brush!

I am naturally very curly. Not tight curls but a headfull of trendils when washed, hand combed (only in shower) and styled correctly. I bought ANOTHER new product yesterday.
I was using a little No-Frizz serum and Redken Fresh Curls. It's OK.
Yesterday I bought Biolage Curl Defining Creme to try it out instead of the Fresh Curls.
I feel like I have a salons worth of products that I've tried. Most are too heavy and weigh down your hair or make it look like you have overdosed on cheap products and a perm.

There is a girl at Illusions Salon and Day Spa in Belle Meade who cuts my hair and does a fantastic job. She is not Deva trained, but she cuts it dry curl by curl. She is a curly herself and is very open to trying new things. I don't worry about the shampoo thing because she cuts it dry. Her name is Cindy, and I think she charges about $40 for a haircut.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
