Oasis Salon - Rockville, MD

Would like to get a Deva cut here, and I see great reviews for owner Wafaya, as well as stylists Mimi and Yolanda. Am wondering if anyone can offer any insight or comments about these three ladies?

I'm especially interested in knowing if any of them are actually curlies themselves? I just find I get better cuts (and especially better styling) from stylists who deal with their own curls on a daily basis.

Any feedback would be most appreciated.

TIA!
Hi there! I actually got my hair cut there by Catherine..she was very good, very knowledgeable and knew the DevaCurl way..my hair is about a 2C I think with maybe 3a...wavy on top and spirals mid to bottom of my hair..she cut it dry then washed with only DevaCurl NoPoo & One C and Angell...she even used papertowels to scrunch a little water out..she was awesome! It's pricey but worth it...everyone there seemed and was curly themselves and knew the Deva way...I think you'd really like them..good luck and let us know what you decide!

Hi Froggette,

Thanks so much for sharing your experience there--so glad it was a good one.

I've had Deva cuts at about 8 different salons, with mixed results, and am still looking for that "perfect" place. Sounds like this could be the one, and I'm encouraged to hear that the stylists are curly themselves.

Will post my experience as well!

Hi curly01,

Sure thing, I'll post about it. I probably won't go until the beginning of August though.

Still haven't decided who to book--too many good reviews, but I guess that's a good problem

Thanks.
Hi,

I had booked an appt with Mimi (Catherine and Yolanda are no longer there), but had to cancel it and haven't rescheduled.

If I do, I'll definitely let you know!

After all the feedback, I'm really thinking about booking an appointment at Oasis. Any recommendations for stylists that are still there?
I went to Wafaya, Mimi, & Catherine when she was @ Oasis, & by far, Catherine was the best (IMHO). I was so disappointed she left, but when I called they toldme she went back to Africa! From reading posts, seems she's still here, but website some members posted, not a salon. ANY info. About address/phone # of where she's @ now, SO much appreciated. baf/
