Default I don't know what you are looking for, but

I just answered your question about Salon W in Prov. I mention my other Deva rant. I'm not techie and don't know how to post a link, but if you look at my previous posts, it is the first one named something like "question about my Deva cut". It does not make the salon sound great and I was highly offended by being sold aDeva cut that wasn't. However, I have since had many more rotten salon experiences! But in all fairness, I do think the cut I got at this place was a good cut...just not a dry cut. I do think the stylists goal was just the long curl side bang look that all Deva cuts appear to be(she said I needed to come back in six months when I had more length to get the real look, but I never did go back.). So depending on what you are looking for, you may want to read reviews or call and talk to this stylist. Or maybe you don't. I just see that you are looking over a tri state area for a salon...so you must be frustrated. I won't say this is a full out recommendation however as I don't want to be responsible if you are disappointed ! And reading this forum I have come across several post of some who are tired of the pursuit of the great curly hair style. I really think for some of us it just isn't going to happen. And I logged a lot of miles and spent a lot of dollars hoping it would be so to no avail. So I am NOT saying you will walk out of this salon happy. I am only saying I think Rose at Station One in Clinton Ct appears to be a good stylist and she has been exposed to the Deva philosophy...even if she doesn't fully embrace it.

I'm sorry I am just seeing your reply.

Thanks so much for the W review. I never went there but instead tried La La Luxe which is not far from W.

Let me sum up my experience, if you have curly kinky hair do NOT go there. The person whom I was match with had no clue what to do with my locks. Instead while she was working on my hair she said I should consider going to Ouidad in NYC. Really? That's a 3 hour drive from Rhode Island.
Very unprofessional to take on a client you can't manage and suggest for them to go elsewhere. I was charged 65 dollars for a trim and a lot of product.

For me, it's not about the perfect deva cut. In fact, I am done with Deva cut. I had three in the past. I just want someone that can understand my hair, and help me work with it. At the same time, give me a good hair cut, know how to blow dry it if I want it straight. I have yet to find someone and as you know, its very frustrating. I am tempted to go to a Dominican salon but my hair has been so dry and I'm also loosing hair that I think the pulling might not be a good idea.

I wish you find someone that helps you as well! Thanks so much for your feedback.
