I'm pretty new to the whole Curly Girl thing. I mean, I've always had curly hair, just didn't know how to embrace it! This website has been a godsend.
Anyway..I got my first Deva cut at Devachan NY with Robert back in April when I was visiting my sister. It was a huge splurge, but a great cut and style. He told me to wait 6 months and come back to see him, but I live in Florida and really can't afford a $600 trim twice a year (haircut, airfare, cab fare, etc.). And I just do not have the courage to cut my own hair. And I needed a trim NOW!
So...I checked out the Devachan directory (MyDevaCurl - Coming Soon (Spring/Summer 2011)
) and read reviews here and found Debra Lewis at a place called Salon Savoy, right here in my hometown of Gainesville. I went to see her today and she was great.
We talked about my hair a lot (which I tend to do anyway) and she listened. I said I was growing out layers and really, really just wanted her to DUST the ends. Nothing crazy. Well, that's exactly what she did. (It's sad how shocking it is to actually get the haircut you ask for. That hardly ever happens to me!)
I will definitely go see her again when I can't stand my hair anymore. Just wanted my local curly girls to know!
