NYC-Aveda Advanced Academy- curly cuts??

My friend who has very loose curly hair, keeps raving about getting her hair cut for free (by being a model) for a proffessional stylist at the Aveda Advanced Academy.

She usually gets a cut meant for her hair to be worn straight, which is how she wears it. But she swears that they also do great curly cuts, and they also do dry cuts.

I have tight, 3B curls, just barely shoulder length. And I've been debating between a getting a Deva Cut, or possibly having a Softener done first, then a Deva Cut.

But now I'm also considering trying out Aveda for a cut, as I desperately need some style and shape!

Has anyone else tried this place for a curly cut? Any good results?

Thanx!! :-)

--> Fine, thin, shoulder length 3B Corkscrews -I think! (became more Botticelli while following CG the first time in 2008...but this time around they are back to normal)
--> Using Deva NoPoo & Angell, with either One Condition or Suave Coconut Conditioner since I like how it weighs down & stretches my curls more.
My friend who reccommened Aveda, told me to make sure it's their Advanced Acadmey- they have stylists who pay to train with them and then work on your hair. So it's not students working on your hair, it's professionals. Their # is (212) 524-2424.

I did a quick internet search and copied/pasted the info below from this person's site: http://newdorkcity.wordpress.com/200...free-haircuts/

Tigi Academy: This is where I go. Hip London-based salon with an outpost school in NYC. Makers of the Bedhead products, this salon is f-u-n-k-y, so expect some element of rockstar to come out in your ‘do. Berry, the colorist, elevates dying hair to an art form. Model calls 6-7pm Friday nights. Located at 673 Madison Ave at 61st Street, 2nd Floor. (212)702-9771(ext.13)

Aveda Academy: Less funky, but still cool. Affiliated with the Aveda line of products, so think naturals. Model call every Wednesday and Thursday noon-1pm and 6-7pm. Located at 20 Vandam Street between Sixth Ave. and Varick. 212-524-2424

bumble & bumble: Stylish staple with classes in their latest looks. Differs from the above in that their students cut your hair rather than the employed stylists. Classes are usually in a specific cut. Model calls on Mondays from 5:30-6:30pm. Located at 415 West 13th Street, 6th Floor. 1.866.7BUMBLE.

I would be careful because I go to the Aveda Institute for color which is fine, but they never know how to style my curly hair and the teachers say twist it around your fingers which is so ridiculous and time consuming. They don't know any of the tips of devachan. For color they are fine, but I always have to rewet and restyle it when I get home.
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.
Thanks for the info/warning- I was afraid that they wouldn't be that good for very curly hair. Even though my friends said that she's seen some very nice results on curly hair...

I'd be a bit cautious as I don't believe (and most certainly could be wrong) that BeCurly isn't CG, so if you're worried about that - beware?

Notty is right. BeCurly (and several other Aveda products) is not CG-friendly. I'm sending a big box of Aveda stuff to my sister as we "speak".
But I actually don't use any Aveda products. I was just curious about their (free) haircuts at their Advanced Academy.

And I'm actually not currently following the CG routine...but I appreciate the advice.
