Ask for Johnnie he is amazing!! He just "gets" hair. there is always a curly or a wavy waiting for him!

He is the stylist who helped me grow out THE nightmare cut - i actually let someone use thinning shears on my head.. I know I know...but the results were SOOOOOOOOOO bad i ended up cutting it down to about 2 inches. It had been past bra strap length when the epic nightmare began.

I am actually curious about East 42....and I have never had a Deva cut....

Meh I don't get the urge to criticize complete strangers' spending habits? Just because someone wouldn't spend $100 on a haircut doesn't make them any smarter than anyone else...Everyone is in a different situation financially & it all depends on individual priorities. Unless the OP has conducted an actual survey of bank accounts there is no way they can accurately claim that 50% of the people on here can't really afford a $100 haircut

After finally finding salons that specialize in curly hair I'm not willing to take the chance on going elsewhere and ending up with a bad haircut. Too traumatic and not worth it at this point in my life. I have never had a problem spending money on my hair as long as I'm getting a really great cut. I was paying $100.00 at a salon I went to for a long time, but I recently went someplace else to try a Diva cut. I LOVED it and the cost was $30.00 cheaper so I'm going to go to this new place from now on. The price isn't a factor for me - it's the type of cut I get and their knowledge about curly hair. Hair is something that's really hard to hide, and my hair defines who I am, so I like it to look good.

Hey! My mom has hair similar to yours and she recently had a Deva cut. ( She used to go to a place that would thin it with tunneling and she really hated this.) I have honestly never seen her hair look so good before. They gave her an incredibly flattering hairstyle. My mouth was on the floor when she came home, so I rushed out and got a Diva cut also. LOVED it. Can't recommend them enough.

CalamityM - your hair is FANTASTIC! Absolutely, totally bloody gorgeous!! My hair has a similar curl to yours - but is coloured/highlighted (I'm afraid it is necessary to cover the grey!!) so the curl definition is nowhere near as great as yours - and your hair looks to be in superb condition!

I am just about to start a CG routine so have a lot of experimenting to do but would love to hear about your routine.

BTW - totally agree with you about the importance of finding a stylist who can cut/colour/style curly hair - I live in London, UK so I know that I will have to pay more that someone living in the suburbs of the UK. I'm sure it is the same in the US - you pay more in the cities. Of course, cost is important but I think it is worth it to cut costs elsewhere in order to get a great cut (I have had so many bad cuts in my life and it is miserable!) The finishing, although great if they can do it correctly, is not so important - you can always re-do at home - but if you have a bad cut then you have to wait months or even years for things to sort themselves out - especially for curly hair - if they cut wrongly or too much it takes 4 times as long to grow out!!

Please post up your routine

i get my hair cut once or twice a year - $200 a bucks a year to look good for the other 363 days is nothing . . . i spend much more than that on the hair products. it's expensive, but very valuable. (the salon i was going to charged $55, but it was a drive. i'm going to try a closer one and pay $75 instead)

I found Jackie R at Imani Style in upstate South Carolina by accident. (She's just three doors down from my dentist!)

I was so desperate to get the relaxed ends cut off, that as long as it wasn't more than $50 for the cut alone, I didn't really care what she did with it.

Oh my gosh!!! She was wonderful! (For $50, I got a shampoo, deep condition, wash and style!) She took her time and was very careful measuring while cutting (semi-dry).

I found that it didn't matter how I wore my hair... afro , ironed straightor twists (how I normally wear it), it looked great!

I went again about 5 months later (only $35 this time), because the ends were getting a little frayed, but even then it was still pretty even.

SO WORTH THE $50! (OK, but that's really all I can afford, anyway...)

Can anyone tell me how much a Junior stylist at Devachan in NYC costs? Whats the difference between junior and senior? - it's hard to get a feel for if it would be worth it to travel up there (i'm from raleigh, nc)

If someone can spend over $100 on a cut, that doesn't make them right or wrong - that just makes them luckier than those who can't.

Based on the reviews in this forum, I went twice to Carlos at Mario Diab, and LOVED him. The guy is truly magic, but he charges $140. Now, that's great if you have long hair that you don't need cut too often, or if you have hair that grows really slowly. And to be entirely fair about those prices, that's about the going rate in NYC - a woman's haircut at a good salon is going to run anywhere from $75 to $300, so Carlos' prices fall somewhere right in the middle. He's extremely talented, not overpriced for NYC, and worth the money.

However, my problems - after going to him twice - are that I wear my hair in a short bob, and that my hair grows like weeds. Although for most women, Carlos' cuts last about four months, but for me, they don't - I need my hair cut at the very least every other month. That's just because of my style and the fact that it grows so fast - it's absolutely no fault of Carlos'.

So I did find a wonderful woman at Robert Stuart Salon on 84th and Amsterdam - her name is Jenny, and although she doesn't do all the CG friendly stuff that Carlos does, she's simply awesome with curly hair, and she charges $55. I love Carlos to bits, and I'll miss him, but with as fast as my hair grows and with my keeping it short, I just can't pass up saving $85 on my hair.

Agreed! I've never paid more than $35, but I've also never had a haircut I absolutely love done by a hairstylist who absolutely knows how to cut curly hair.

That's actually a really great idea to pay more for a nicer cut, but get it cut only 3 times a year. One question though...aren't you supposed to get your hair cut every 6-8 weeks to prevent breakage?

Healthy hair shouldn't have breakage. The only reason you'd need to get your hair cut that frequently is if you're maintaining a shorter style or growing out damage.

$100?! Hah...my salon only charges $55 for a haircut. My stylist told me to get a haircut every two months, but I'd rather do it every 4-6 months because I don't really have problems with dry ends.

After 2 decades of getting my hair cut all over the country (moved a lot) I could not possibly agree more. No matter how scraggly you think you look, a too-short mullet or bitsy flyway razored pieces too short to even pull back WILL be worse. The haircuts I've had to do myself have not been wonderful: but never worse than a botched cheap one. Also, you can try an at home color glaze to perk up the look and curl texture while you are looking for a salon.

I have to say, I find the OP really offensive. If I want to pay that much for a haircut, and I have the money, is it anyone's business but my own? I don't comment on how much someone else spends on their clothes, or shoes, or a $500 purse. It's none of my business. I may think whatever I chose, but who am I to be so judgemental? And who is the OP to be so judgemental of what some of the curlies on here spend on their hair?
If you're happy with a $25 haircut, kudos to you. Otherwise, get off the soapbox.

I just found a salon where I could get a devacut, it also has very good reviews, but it is 150 Dollar for a deva treatment.

I dont know if I should get it or not. I have thought it will be 100 Dollar, but 150 Dollar is crossing the line a little bit. What do you guys think?

It's worth it. With a Deva cut you're paying for their knowlege , education and experience , and you shouldn't have to get it cut too often
