Lori is a "deva inspired" stylist and is really excited to cut curly hair. I certainly never went to a stylist with that attitude before! This was my first deva cut and I was very excited to find a stylist in my area with this training. Although my hair was in good condition (thanks to nc.com...), the cut wasn't right for my curls and I had several problem areas where my hair was bushy and frizzy because the curls just didn't work together. Lori took the time to talk to me about what problems I was having with my hair and what I didn't like. She "really looked" at my hair and noticed that I have different curl patterns on different parts of my head and that was why my old cut wasn't working for me. She used all of the deva cutting techniques and products and I was left with a really great cut. It's been about 8 weeks since my first cut and the biggest thing I've noticed is that my curls work together instead of against each other and that my hair is even curlier than it used to be. We've recently started getting some humidity here and instead of frizzing out, my hair is getting curlier and keeps a good shape. I just went back for a second cut today and I highly recommend Lori to anyone with curly hair.
