Hello Curlies,

I have been wanting a professional curly cut for years but have never been able to find a salon/stylist that I trusted. I found Penny Lane Studios on the DevaCurl.com web page and decided to give them a try because they have five deva inspired stylists including two advanced stylists and one national educator (Coral).The salon itself is has a very nice vibe. It is bright and clean, they offer you beverages when you come in and everyone is very pleasant. There were also lots of curlies there getting Deva Cuts when I went and from what I could see all of the stylists were doing a great job.

Coral did my cut and she was fabulous! She was very communicative, showing me everything she was going to do and getting my feedback before she did it. For example, because my curls are looser on one side than the other the curls in the back on one side hang a little longer than those on the other side. Coral discussed evening it out with me and I explained that I wasn't ready for it to be uneven when straight as I flat iron once or twice a year. She totally understood and we agreed that she would take off as little as possible and make it look as even as she could. For the first time EVER I left the salon with exactly what I wanted. I got home and actually decided that I wanted more taken off the back. I have never left a salon and decided that I could stand to go shorter! I'm usually in tears because my "trim" turned into a loss of several inches.

If you are looking for an excelent Deva Cut in Chicago I highly recommend Coral at Penny Lane!

I wish I lived closer to Chicago, all the good salons are out there and in the suburbs I'm an hour away and hate driving in! Annette at Posh Salon and Color Bar in Wheaton is really good too. How much did they charge at Penny Lane?

Driving into Chicago can definitely be a pain, especially since the bulk of the time is spent sitting in traffic .

The pricing of the cut varies based on the experience level of your chosen stylist. Coral (my stylist) is the most expensive at 110.00. There are two advanced stylists who charge 95.00 and two base stylists who charge 75.00. When I went in for consultation Coral recommended that I go with her or one of the advanced stylists since I have such tightly curled hair. But if you have a looser curl pattern you could go with any of the stylists. From what I saw the two times I was there they do really good work as well. Every curly I saw leaving that salon, in addition to having really great looking hair, looked happy (I paid extra attention to their facial expressions because that is what really lets you know if they got what they wanted lol).
