Who is the best stylist at Devachan? And what is your curl type?

I am something of a 2b-3a (still trying to work it out), I think I have a mix of all 3, but predominantly 2c.

I am trying to work out which stylist to book in with. I hear a lot of love for Ana and am thinking about going to see her.

Who would you recommend and what is your hair type?

Oh, and yes, I know Carlos at Mario Daub is meant to be amazing, but I do want to try out the whole Devachan experience.
I'm bumping this thread. I have the same question. I'm thinking of setting up an appointment there for sometime this coming summer when I'm back East visiting my family. (Right now, I'm growing out a bad layered haircut, but I hope to have all of my layers filled in by this summer. I'll want a new, fresh cut that is done curl by curl.)

Who should we go see there, curlies? I know a lot of people on here have gone to the Devachan salon in NYC.

Is it possible to get Lorraine Massey herself?

Taren916 posted a YouTube video about her haircut with April at the Deva Salon in Soho. You can see the process and judge for yourself. The video was posted this week and I think the title is My Semi Big Chop.

I was super impressed with the shaping especially since Taren didn't have her hair styled afterwards so April didn't have a chance to go over the haircut again once it had been washed and styled.

Good luck with your search. Btw, Taren's curls seem to be a mix of 3s
I don't come to this board often, otherwise I would have posted sooner. I go to Devachan and I see Robert. I've been going to him for about 8 or 9 years and there's no one else that I trust with my hair. NO ONE!

I recommend him to everyone I know with curly hair. He's just wonderful and so talented. I've never once gotten a bad cut from him. He listens to what I want, even if I'm totally vague, he figures out what I want, asks me questions as he goes and in the end I walk out with a great cut that lasts me about 6 months before I have to go back.

I have an appointment with him this month and I can't WAIT! I'm so excited to see him, hang out with him, and to walk out with another great cut. He's worth every penny that I spend on the cut, the tip, the trip into the city....really, I can't say enough about him.

Oh I should mention that I have very thick, probably 3b hair that is long. I usually keep it between my shoulders and the middle of my back in the winter, and then closer up to my shoulders in the warmer months.

Good luck!

I'm also considering trying the salon. I have a mtg in NYC coming up so I thought I might book an appt for the same day.

Does it matter which NYC salon you go to? Do the stylists move back & forth?

Am also wondering if anyone can comment on the price of a cut from any of the people mentioned above (Robert, Ana, Sophie, April....)--I guess I can call & ask but that always makes me feel uncomfortable....

Thank you.
My properties
Fine, normal porosity, normal elasticity

Leave-in Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut; looking for a replacement for the no-longer-CG Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition
Gel Looking for a replacement for the discontinued LAL blue gel. Also thinking I need a low- or no-humectant gel for high-dew days, but haven't figured that one out.

Also interested. I think I read somewhere that a Junior Stylist is $85, no idea about Senior Stylists. I like my Deva stylist, but if it costs the same amount for a Jr. Stylist at Devachan as it does for someone who has taken a class, and the difference for me is train fare, well, it's probably worth a try.

Has anyone been to Julie at the Broome street location?
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.
​I've been reading a lot of reviews and cannot decide on a stylist. I'm stuck between Helik, *Robert, Krystal, and Melanie. *Which do you prefer? Any of these stylists have pictures of their work anywhere?*
Yes, it would be terrific to see pictures of what the stylists did. I wonder if some are better with certain types or lengths of hair than others?

ETA: I haven't been for a Deva cut in several years but with the high dews approaching I'm likely to go. I have chin length hair - any stylist particularly great for short cuts?
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high.
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
I think you might be able to google each stylist and then click on video and you can see their work in action.

I'd just like to put in a good word for Nevila at the Broadway location.

Here's her video.
