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.

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?

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.
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.

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.

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!
