Jennifer Sparano is wonderful. I went for my first cut with her recently. There was a lot of communication - making sure we understood eachother and I got what I wanted. She did the Deva method and went through all the details of what she was doing with me. She used Devacurl products but didn't push me to purchase anything. I'm following her suggestions for styling myself at home and getting improved results with my curls. I'd give Jenn an A+. She has moved to Lynnels Hair Design in Loma Portal. It's a nice, smaller salon.
Jen is in the same building, but now in studio 9. Jen has given me the best haircut I have ever had. I've had her cut my hair 3 times now and every time is a good as the first. She uses the Deva cut method and uses their products. She is also open to you bringing in your own products if you use something other than Deva. Her prices are very reasonable and are cheaper than the other "Deva" prices I found in the SD area.
Jen is amazing! I have been to several stylists on this list and have finally found someone that knows what she's doing and does it for a reasonable price. Jen uses the Deva Curl method and products and she does a great job on cut and color. I walk out of the salon happy and with my hair looking good, which doesn't usually happen for me.
