Please help! Sad news for all the NYC devas :(

The link no longer works. What happened to Francis?
Francis was murdered in his home at the end of September. There was no sign of forced entry, so police speculated he knew his killer. As of right now, I don't know that anyone has yet been arrested.

I modeled on stage for Francis in June at Premiere Orlando (one of the largest annual hair shows for beauty industry professionals). He was a great guy and an awesome stylist. It's such a tragic loss

I heard that it was his partner Supposively he went on a Mediteranean cruise and met a group of people, whom he met up with 2 nights earlier. So sad!
I like Allison at glamour 2 in waldwick, NJ (bergen county). She is deva trained.

I am not blah. I'm a hoot.
Earlier in this thread I asked if anyone had a photo of Francis and no one replied. Can anyone describe him so I can figure out who he was? I often chat with other stylists in passing while at Devachan and would like to put a face to this sad story.
I don't have a picture of him- sorry! But, it was so weird... i went to Devachan on Broadway on Saturday around 3 and it was almost empty in there Thats weird! Its usually packed.
I have been reading the postings re. a Deva trained salon in Rockland and Westchester counties. I have gone to the city to the Deva Salon to Jackie and was happy, but what a pain and expensive. I'm also looking for a closer alternative. I too live in Rockland, but never heard of Debbie of Hair 166 until this website. For some reason I'm sceptical of her talents...prove me wrong. I'm going to try Lois from Louis de Chiarro Salon, Eastchester next month. I found her in this website, someone gave her a rave review and said she is Deva trained. I have a better feeling that this Westchester salon might be closer to the real Deva experience than Monsey, NY. I also heard about the WHite Plains opening of Devaschan, but can't get any concrete info about it. Does anybody have more info re. the Louis de Chiarro Salon?

I'm skeptical not because she is in Monsey, but because I never heard of her pre this website. AFter living in Rockland for so long I think I've tapped all the knowledge of any good haircutters in the county. Again, I can be wrong. I just have a better feeling about this one in Eastchester. It is not too bad of a commute for the frequency I need to go and I need to go with my gut. Please let me know about your experience with Debbie. WHen is your appointment? I would love to hear about your experience. P.S. they sell the Deva products in New City at New City Beauty and Beauty Plus. They always have coupons for 20% - 40% off in the Clipper magazines.

best of luck in echester and thanks for the tip about new city.
