Please help! Sad news for all the NYC devas :(
 
I just spoke to Lilly from Devachan on Broadway (NYC) and she told me that Francis past away this morning :( They don't know any further details as to what happened; they found him this morning.

This is where i need help: Francis was going to style my hair for my wedding next year, and now i don't know what to do.

I live in Edgewater, NJ and my wedding will be in Rockland County, NY (Nyack). Can anyone recommend a great Deva stylist in Rockland or Bergen/Hudson county who knows curly hair?

I would like to find something closer to home the day of the wedding, but i need to make sure that i go to someone who knows curly hair. Before i went to Devachan, i use to hate going to get hair cuts and coloring, bc no body knew what to do with my curls...

Please help!

Oh my dear God! I went to Francis for my 1st Deva cut...that's terrible news. But, I would recommend any of the other stylists at Deva if you wanted to stick with them. I don't know anyone else in that area though...I'm from Jersey myself.

OMG I wonder what happened. I should call my cousin she works there..

Kladi4 09-25-2007 07:15 PM

Who else would you recommend from their salon? I was reading about the salon thats in Livingston, NJ (recommended by this site). I should find something closer to my house; especially the day of my wedding. I have to be at church at 3:30 and Devachan doesn't open until 11- they said they might let me come in at 9. (With traffic, parking and getting out of the city- you never know).

kladi--i live in rockland county. i have heard that debbie from hair 366 in monsey is very good, and is deva trained. so sorry to hear about francis. how old was he?

Kladi4 09-26-2007 05:58 AM

Thank you banjocurl... have you been to her, do you know anyone who has? I'll try calling her today. I know that the best go to the city, just because its so close- buy it would be great to find Deva stylists outside in the suburbs too. PS- what salon do you go to?

Thanks so much! I don't know anything what happened to Francis- they didn't really say.

I don't go to Devachan, but that is so sad. My condolences to his family and friends.

That is so sad. I used to go to Francis. I stopped going because of the expense. He was a true diva himself and was such a wonderful person. The world will miss him.

I'm going to see Debbie at Hair 166 this saturday.... Can't wait! I spoke to her and she described the same techniques she uses as Devachan salon does. If this works out- this will be great for Rockland County area! And, she admitted to being so much less expensive than Devachan. Which is always great to hear :)

It seems he was murdered! http://www.newsday.com/news/local/ne...,5282086.story

Does anyone have a photo of Francis from a visit to Devachan? I've been going to Jackie, but I've often exchanged smiles and had little conversations with other stylists. I'd like to put a face to this terrible news.

Kladi4 09-27-2007 01:12 PM

OMG... thats so disturbing- i'm curious to see how this will untangle. I don't have a picture of him:( I would love to also put a name to a face.

How tragic. Please keep us posted with any updates. Thanks.

marybeth 09-27-2007 01:31 PM

really tragic, sad to hear.

CurlyinColorado 09-27-2007 01:38 PM

Oh, that's awful!

cjc 09-27-2007 04:20 PM

So sad..I cant believe this. The first time I went to Devachan, Francis cut my hair. He was so nice and not pushy. I told him not to cut off too much and he didn't. I wonder if this ws a big news story in NY.

kimmyc 09-27-2007 08:00 PM

That is so sad. I send the best to his friends and family. How tragic...

Hi banjo...

Debbie was great, however, i only got a deep conditioning treatment and she then clipped my hair. I also tried another salon, Plush Salon, in White Plains, which was absolutely horrible! They are supposively Deva trained, but they don't have a clue of how to do curly hair--- they washed my hair with regular shampoo, only used One C at the end, they wanted to blow dry my hair.... I left the salon with tears in my eyes because she said my hair will fall out if i don't get it trimmed ???!!! (this was after she shampooed it :()

I'm going to see Robert this saturday at Devachan for a hair cut... I always know i'm in good hands there.

However, there is a Devachan opening in White Plains in the next month or so. It will have everything as the two locations in the city have---- i'm very excited!
