price of a trim!

I go to a Deva stylist and she raised her prices. I just can't afford this! And she's only trimming the very ends. Yes, she does a very nice job and I'm happy with it but I can't afford these prices anymore.
I called a place that said they cut curly hair and I told them, "that's what most places say and they really don't know how." She said she has naturally curly hair that is layered also and she's very happy with her cut. So, I'm going to stop in and see her and speak with her. I won't need another trim for a while. I asked her if she used scissors or a razor and she said to me, "do you want a razor used??" And I said, "no." She said, "oh, good because I wouldn't suggest it - I use scissors." I know it won't be like a deva cut but I just can't afford the 75.00 every couple of months. My hair grows so fast. I would be happy with a decent trim as long as I don't get a pyramid head or some other horrible look

Who were you going to?
April
3a/b, med texture, med porosity, low dews



It went up $10, if you were going to A, but if you were going to K, it went up $20. Which one raised?
I was going to A. And I feel like I have to give her a tip and that just puts me way over my budget. I'm depressed over it because I really like her and she does a great job but with this economy, that's just a bit too much for me. I'm going to give this other place a try next time I need a trim which will be in a couple of months now.

I've only been to K so far. Have you guys been to both of them? If so, who's your fave?
I understand that the increase could make it difficult, especially when you add in a tip and any products you might leave with. I wish there were more stylists here that knew how to do curly hair. They all say they can, but we know better.
Let us know how the new one works out.

You'll have to let us know how it goes, & the who/where/how much. I hope all works out as expected & then some.
I'm jealous! I would happily save up to go to a curly hair trained stylist, but there isn't one in my area. At least, not that I've found so far. I've heard of people paying over $300, and that I couldn't do, but I could do $75 every 3 months or so. Maybe you could send me one of your stylists? Pretty please?

i think they should charge depending on your length and what needs to be done. It takes all but 15 min. to trim mine and I get charged the same amount. Oh well.
