Carlos left Devachan

I'm looking at the prices you ladies pay for haircuts and I'm appalled. Is it really worth $95 for a HC? The stylist I've used for the last couple of years does great with curly hair (I really need a trim for the dead ends, but I've never had a pyramid problem with growing out hair since I've gone to her) and I can get out of there for less than $40 and that is a good tip too.

I go to our local beauty school for the color and they do a fantastic job---even my stylist admired it. And I can get out of there for around $35 and again, a good tip. I lived in Houston for years and in the '80s paid around $40 for a cut...but I can imagine what it is now for that stylist.

The prices go much higher than that...I think Lorraine is at $200+? ...and I think I read somewhere Sally Hershberger charges $600!! Now I'll admit that $600 sounds SUPER crazy to me!
So what is his price there?
Hair type, thin, 3b, past my shoulders always looking for length. Use jessicurl hair cleansing cream, devacurl one c, angel, set it free, Always see a deva trained stylist for cut and Aveda Institute for color.
Did you ask him why he left?
Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or hump it.....Piss on it and walk away.

I came here immediately after getting a phone call today from someone calling me on Carlos's behalf! LOL!! The person I spoke to told me that he had left but was just down the street. What a relief, I would have freaked out if I had called for my 6 month check up in November and been told some outlandish lie about him being off in Tibet somewhere. I asked about the pricing and I was told he was keeping it betw $115 and $130 which is what it was at devachan so I am happy. I will gladly pay that twice a year to keep looking fabulous. I wish him much success and I hope this works out for him. I know I'll be there to check it out!
susancnw, for me, spending that kind of money on Devachan is worth it in the long run. I think of all the money I've spent on my hair over the years: all the stylers, shampoos, conditioners, deep treatments, hairdryers, straightening irons, curling irons, hair brushes, clips, headbands, trips to the stylist to get my hair "done" for special events, cuts every 6 weeks, and on and on, not to mention the HOURS every day I used to spend trying to cajole my hair into being something it's not.

Then I think of the fact that, yeah, it costs me an exorbitant amount to visit Devachan. But I only have to go once a year, and doing so allows me to have a total of six -- SIX -- products for my hair in the bathroom at all times (two condishes, cheap gel/ArcAngell, SIF, and a cheap mousse) and that, drying time aside, I put less time into my hair now than I have since I was 14. I have a no-worry routine, no matter the weather. And the numbers in my rather tight budget actually work out!

I persuaded my mom (totally different curl pattern and texture from me), who has never in my lifetime come home from a salon without being near tears, if not IN tears, to go to Devachan. She walked in hypercritical and negative, looking to pick apart the experience. She walked out with a smile on her face, amazing curls, and has been able to recreate that ever since. She's happy with a salon and her hair for the first time in her life , and is looking forward to going back.

Sorry to jump in on a Carlos thread! We go to Rosie and love her, even though she's a wavy!
