Scared of the cut
Hey there!
Anywhere else this might sound weird but I believe many curlies have a similar problem so...
I've been looking for a good stylist like forever, first one that worked with the Devachan method but there is not a single one in the entire country or something similar which was also hopeless.
No my sister (2-3a curls) got a haircut somewhere nearby and it's really pretty even though cut wet, done by a stylist with curly hair.

My hair really needs a trim and some freshening up but I'm scsred it will go erong because she says she'll have to comb it and when I try to comb my hair I get two layers...but her curls look really good so I'm tempted. Plus I'm noz entitely happy with the curly girl method anymore so masbe she's right and not the handbook?
Anyone got any advice? Btw. I'M a 3c

Hey there-

I had a similar problem. There isn't anyone that gives devacuts in my area!

But then I found my stylist! She is amazing, and she doesn't give Devacuts. She cuts hair wet and combs through it and still does a great job. So I really don't think you need a devacut to get a great haircut.

If your really nervous about the stylist messing up, then I would reccommend possibly getting a sylist with curly hair herself. Mine does, and I really think that's why she understands curl patterns and everything so well.

Some of my best cuts in the past haven't been Devacuts - and I've also seen some pretty mediocre Devacuts. I think it comes down to the skill and artistry of the individual stylist - and for me the best thing is actually seeing a live example - which it sounds like you have.

I agree that it doesn't have to be a Deva stylist. I think the main thing is to be sure and research all the stylists that interest you. That means looking online for reviews from customers. It can also mean interviewing them (even just over the phone) to find out what their idea of a good curly cut is. If you've met someone who received a swimmingly Heavenly cut from that stylist, bonus.

Whomever you choose, be very VERY specific about exactly what sort of cut you're looking for: number of inches taken off, how much hair to leave on your head. The kind of cut you DON'T want. Also, it's always great to have pics to show her or him - ideally the pics are of the cut you want, from as many angles as possible, and on a head of hair that more or less approximates your curl type. I get mine of google images. You may come across as slightly control-freaky and that's just fine. They'll know you want the best.

It's comforting if the person also has curly hair, but some of the best cuts I've had have come from stylists with stick straight hair who have a love affair with curls and cut/style curly hair day in and day out. Ideally you want someone who cuts ALL types of curly hair OFTEN.

Finally, keep an open mind but pay attention to your "gut". If for any reason you get an uneasy feeling about the stylist during a consultation, or when s/he's about to cut your hair, exercise your right to cancel the appointment or leave, even if you've just warmed up the chair. It may make you feel kind of like a jerk, but it's the no more tears approach to nurturing and protecting that personal portable party you call your curls :occasion9: :occasion9: :occasion9: :occasion9:
