I went to Imago yesterday for my first ever curly haircut - I was nervous, but excited, too. I had done a lot of research to find a salon that did dry cuts and had stylists trained in the Deva cutting method. Though Imago is 2 hours from my house, it seemed like the best choice, so I booked an appointment. The moment I walked in the door, I knew I had found a gem! Jessica was running a little late, as the girl who had her appointment before me had been late (she had also traveled from a distance to get there), but I was so enthralled watching the stylists do their magic on the other curlies there that I didn't care. When it was my turn, Jessica sat me down and asked me about my hair - what I do with it now, what I use, and whether I was familiar with the CG method. I told her my current routine and what I was looking for in a haircut and she started on my cut. As she was cutting my hair dry, I could tell that it was going to look terrific when styled - and I was right! After my cut, Jessica cleansed and applied product, talking me through each step. She used Deva products on me, which I didn't really love, but she didn't push me to buy them, which I really appreciated. After I sat under the heat lamp for a bit, she taught me how to finish my style, and then did a bit of extra trimming. My appointment took about 2 hours, and with the round trip to Richmond and back, I spent 6 hours on my hair yesterday - and it was worth every second. I absolutely LOVE my cut - it seemed to take no time at all, but my hair moves and lays so much better! I'm so happy I took the risk and tried Imago - I've already booked my next appointment for June!
I went to Imago A Salon For Hair, for the first time in December 2010. I was able to get an appointment with Jessica pretty quick. When I first sat down, she looked at my hair and asked me what I do with it now, what products I use and what is my goal. I told her I have been following the curly girl method for several months now. My condition of hair is in better shape,,but my current stylist does not know how to cut curly hair. She was real good with asking me questions, to make sure she did not trim too much. I had some shorter layers that she suggested I grow out. She talked me through everything, while doing it...cleansing, conditioning, and styling. She gave me tips on clipping so I could pump up a flat spot and several other ideas to do with my hair. I had a great experience, reasonably priced, and made another appt. to get my grey colored.
Great haircut! She listens to what you want. She gave awesome tips on what to do with my curls! She's friendly and not super pushy with the products. I return to her whenever I need my hair cut!
I've been driving the hour to Imago for years and I consistently get the best haircuts of my life. The salon has a great vibe and the I feel like a rockstar every time I leave. They cut dry, wash, style, slow dry, and re-cut. The stylists educate as they go, which I think is essential. I found Image through the Deva Curl site.
