I was sooo nervous I could have lost my breakfast! I had been keeping my protective style for almost a year. This was the first time I saw my hair again. But after Kathy worked her magic, I'm in love with my curls all over again! I'm super excited to wear my hair now, and my heat damage is gone! Say yes to Kathy!

I just had the absolute BEST hair cut EVER! I have 4a/b hair and had the Deva cut experience. Kathy not only explained what she was going to do before she did any cutting, but talked me through each step. She also taught me how to properly use the products at home to recreate my look. I will definitely be back. I HIGHLY recommend Kathy to all natural curly girls and guys!

Kim was AWESOME!!!!! she took her time to get to know me and what I was looking for in a haircut. I went from very long, 3B curly hair to an amazing short haircut above my shoulders. She cut my hair while dry, curl by curl and made sure it was PERFECT! My hair is bouncy and full of life. I cut it last week and everyone compliments my hair. I've been wearing my hair out everyday, no pony tails, no hair pins, no hair bands. Today is day 3 for me without washing my hair and it's still SO NICE! Thanks Kim!!!!!

I just moved to the area and one of the biggest concerns about relocating was finding someone who knows how to cut my curly hair. Im so glad I found Kathy! Not only is she very friendly, she knows so much about curly hair and I felt like I learned so much about my hair- wish I had learned this stuff 20 years ago! Im excited to see improvements in my hair now that I know how to care for it properly.

I was so nervous as I hadn't had a haircut in about a year since I'd stopped flat ironing. My last hair cut they'd taken off way too much of my hair for a 'trim'. I expressed my worries to Kathy and she let me know I had nothing to worry about. She was right! She didn't cut off too much hair and I still got a great cut. She also let me know everything she was doing to my hair and why; products included. I'm so happy my first Deva cut was a success and I have found someone I can feel comfortable with cutting my hair!

After a bad haircut on my daughters curly locks months ago at a different salon, I took a chance on Kellen who I got from this site. She took her time explaining to my 11 yr old how she was going to cut and style her hair. She also educated her on how to care for her curls and keeping it hydrated. We love the deva cut and products. It was worth the expertise!

Let me just say that, as probably most curly girls can agree, my hair and I haven't always gotten along.. I've used countless lotions and potions, and had terrible haircut after even worse haircut (or even haircuts that looked great all freshly blown-out and flat-ironed, but then looked ridiculous if I tried to go natural) all my life that I can remember.. When nothing ever worked, I blamed my hair. Well, not anymore! Thanks to Katt, I now LOVE my curls! She gave me the Devacut, and really took the time to explain the Devacurl products and how to use them. My curls have never looked better! My husband even said I've been walking with more sass in my stride. ;) Go see her and let her work the Devacurl miracle on your curls too!

I am African American and have never had a Devacut, I was really nervous about having my long hair cut. I entered the salon and couldn't help but think that I didn't belong. I was greeted and introduced and felt right at home. Everyone was very kind and made me feel comfortable. Kathy started cutting my hair and I could instantly see a change and shape. My hair was long but with no shape and little definition. Not only did I get the best haircut I have ever had in my life, I also learned numerous things I never knew about curly hair. The visit was not only a haircut but also a lesson on how to care for my hair. I have found a new stylist that I love!! Please, if you are natural and in need of a nice haircut please try out this salon. Kathy was wonderful!

As a guy with curly hair I never liked having curly hair so I always have kept it very short. I embraced my curly hair and decided to grow it out and that's when my quest for perfect curls began. I did a lot of reading online about what products to use and how to begin the CG process. I still had a ton of questions, so I went to the CG salon that was right around the corner Rudy & Kelly and spoke with Kellen Person. She answered all my questions and got my started on the Deva product line. As a guy I wanted something simple. She explained how to use the products and assured me that it would be easy. A month later I went back for my first cut with Kellen. I was a little nervous as every time before that I had gotten my curls cut my hair always ended up too short and I lost my curls. She sat me down and talked me thru the entire process and assured me that when I left I will still have a head of curls. Well, after she was done I still had my head of curls and it looked better than ever! I have since gone back for another cut and this time it turned out even better than the last. Now that my hair was long enough she began the process of shaping and cutting the individual curls. If you have curly hair guy or girl this would definitely be a salon you should visit if you want amazing curly hair!

Before I had went to the salon my hair was very frizzy and my hair was wavy instead of it being curly like it should. I had told Kathy my hair journey and what i do to my hair. She told me evrything about my hair and how to to use the Deva Products. Once she did my hair and did the Deva Cut i was amazed how great my hair looked and how i can actually see curls NOT waves but curls. I recommend her to anyone and I will be going back to her again. *Jackylen Victoria

Kathy ROCKS! Since I'm new to the curly girl world I booked my first appt with her at this salon & I have to admit, I went in skeptical. After telling Kathy my hair care journey & what I was looking for, she knew exactly what to do...awesome! I got an awesome pintura color & a well defined wash & go where I, for the first time, saw my curls pop! She was wonderful in explaining the products used & how I can achieve the same look at home. She was amazing & listened! I love my highlights! The atmosphere of the salon, by the way was very warm, friendly, inviting, unbiased, & comfortable (huge plus)! I will definitely be going back to this location (huge smile)! Tricia

I went to Kathy for the first time this fall. I have struggled with my hair for years trying to find something that would work for me. Product after product and stylist free stylist. We moved to Virginia last year and I had no luck in finding someone that I felt comfortable with. Kathy is it. I love her approach to cutting hair. She explained everything to me. Showed me he difference that Deva Curl made in my hair. Most definitely this is my salon from now on. In fact I need to make an appointment to see her soon. I need a trim and some color to hide my grays. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

I was new to the whole curly hair life ... I had gone my whole life with relaxed hair. Back in March I had cut all my relaxed hair out and was left to figure out how to handle this new texture of hair .. I have 3b/3c hair and was finding myself frustrated with dry hair. I read great reviews on Kathy and set up an consultation to see if she knew how to help me ... After a great and informative consultation, I made an appointment ... During my appointment, she had trimmed and took me step by step through the DevaCurl process ... MY HAIR NEVER LOOKED BETTER !!! I bought all the products and she even through in a few items to help me .. Will definitely be back .. THANK YOU KATHY !! Ciara Walden

I was so nervous about cutting hair short, because it had been long all of my life. But I was looking for a change, and through a lot of research I found Rudy and Kelly Salon in Chesapeake, specficially Kathy, who is Deva Certified. I am 3C curly and my hair was cut from BSL (Bra Strap Length) to an angled curly bob. I LOOOOOVE my hair cut and my curls! Thanks so much Kathy. ~~Janeen J.

I have 3c (fractal if you follow CG Method) curls. I have been transitioning for two years and decided I needed a cut (style) and trim the last of the relaxed ends. I was very nervous because I usually do not let anyone touch my curls. Kathy was amazing!! She asked what I wanted to achieve, looked through my curls and went from there. There was no guessing what she was doing because she explained everything she did in great detail. If you are looking for someone to cut your curls you will not be disappointed.

What an amazing stylist! Kathy took the time to examine my hair and asked many questions to get a history of my hair. She was very informative and explained what might be going on with my hair and the Deva system to me. She walked me through every step and gave me instructions so that I could take care of my hair when I left. She came up with a treatment plan and cut my hair in a cute style that gave my curls purpose. I was a bit nervous at first and I'm still getting use to the short hair but I like the new style, I was in desperate need of change. I love that Kathy gave me the tools to duplicate the look on my own as in the past I've never been able to recreate the salon look. I will definitely go back to continue my new hair journey and I am taking my daughter in as well.

Initially, I was a bit apprehensive about going to this salon since the majority of the reviews have type 2 and 3 hair, and I have 4a African American hair. However, I decided to take a chance because of all the great reviews. The reason I went to the salon was for highlights. I wanted caramel, honey blonde, and blonde highlights throughout my hair. I got the idea for the highlights from a Youtuber I watch and I wanted my hair to look just like hers. Kathy decided to use the pintura highlighting method which really gave my hair a sun kissed look with all the colors on my curls. I really loved the results, and I felt like my hair looked just like the YouTuber if not better. The price was a little more than what I was used to paying, but it was comparable to many salons in the area. Kathy was very professional and I would definitely see her again.

I, like most of the other reviewers, have struggled with my hair most of my life. No one knew how to cut it, or thought they knew how to cut it, and I became dependent on my blow dryer and straightener. Stylists never identified me as having curly hair - just thick, course, and a lot of it. After moving to the Hampton Roads area a couple years ago and receiving horrible hair cuts, I decided to let it grow out and let it air dry over the hot summer we have been experiencing. It always looked good wet, but once it was dry, it was a mess and I would put it in a scrunchie or a bun. I found Courtney on line after a waitress at a local restaurant told me she went to Rudy and Kelly's at another location. I started researching all the locations and happened upon Courtney as a curly hair specialist. I thought about making an appointment for weeks as I wasn't sure I really DID have curly hair. But, I finally took the plunge and am thrilled that I did. Not only was Courtney very warm and instantly likable, she understood exactly what all my complaints and worries were. She listened, explained what she was doing, taught me how to style my hair and "let my inner curls out." I love my curls - I have a lot of them - more than I thought! I hope I can stick with the new me and eventually toss my dryer and straightener. I will be a loyal client of Courtney's for as long as I am in Hampton Roads. I might add that the other stylists at R&K were engaged in my process and super friendly and supportive. All in all, a great experience. Sincerely - Elaine Z.

I read a lot of info on what a great stylist that knew what to do with curly hair could help one achieve though trying to find such a stylist was not an easy task. I tried a Deva Curl specialist salon in Richmond and gave the receptionist my info & explained that not only was my hair curly, colored but very thick. Unfortunately for me the stylist had good ideas though was intimated by the amount of my hair, she did not know where to begin. She made a vain attempt, I went back she tried again, she fell very short of the mark, went back again & explained my dissatisfaction only to meet with the owner of the salon telling me she did not have time to help. The trip to Richmond took me one hour & forty-five minutes one way & had twice in two weeks. Needless to say, I was very disappointed and discouraged. A friend mentioned Courtney at Rudy & Kelly's. I read all her reviews & though!t what do I have to lose. I went for a free consultation, she discussed with me what she felt my problem areas were & what her game plan would be to achieve it. Wow!!! was I surprised & impressed. I know we still have a way to go but it already looks great. Yes, Courtney is a Deva Curl Specialist too, but without the rigid gyrations of separating strands of hair, etc.their techniques made it time consuming & unreasonable applications for today's lifestyles. Courtney took the same info streamlined, it works and my hair looks fabulous. She repaired the over processed coloring, which on curly hair just adds more frizz and diminishes curl. She took time her time to make sure she explained what each step would entail, came up with a plan, reaffirmed that we were on the same page and made it happen. The color looks natural, hair is easy to manage, holds its curl I just give my curls a fresh spritz which takes about 2 minutes and that's it. Now I know what I need to do to make the best out of my naturally curly hair and I owe it all to Courtney. She's knowledgeable, professional, loves her job & is a very pleasant person.The staff works together to make your experience at Rudy & Kelly's an enjoyable experience. I have found my new stylist.

I have battled my curly hair all my life. My hair is thick and some of my curls are defined and others are not. No one ever really realized how to cut my hair so the layers would lay on top of each other creating a "shelf" effect. It was really starting to hurt my self esteem so one day I was looking online and found this website. I was thrilled to find out that there was a salon in my area that specialized in naturally curly hair. I made the appointment and met with Courtney. She was amazing! She told me things about curly hair that I never knew. She then cut my hair curl by curl while it was dry and created beautiful cascades of curls that framed my face. No more shelf! :) She taught me how to take care of my hair with Deva Curl which I have really enjoyed using. I have had so many complements on my hair and my curls have looked great. I now love having curly hair. Thank you Courtney!

I've never had a better haircut than the one I got from Courtney. It's a joy to finally find a stylist who understands curly hair and isn't trying to make it something it's not, i.e. straight! She put so much care and attention into my cut and style and was so helpful in recommending styling tips. And she has curly hair herself, which makes me feel better knowing she also is dealing with the challenges and benefits of having this type of hair. I'm so lucky to have found her!

My hair has always been coarse and curly, a terrible combination (thanks mom... heehee). After changing stylists and salons after finding no one who could handle my curls and not groan when I walked in, I went to Rudy and Kelly. I had flat ironed my hair for 6 years so that it would be soft and not kinky, but it was so bad for my hair. I hated my hair all my life and Courtney and Kathy just changed my mind, introducing me to the Deva cut and products. Now I "embrace my curls." I've had so many compliments from others, which is nice but I myself love my hair now. I finally found two stylists who love curls, aren't terrified of doing my hair, and have learned the newest miracle for curly hair. Both women are wonderful with curls and take their time when working with you. I just went to Courtney for the first time because I had waited for an opening with either stylist, and I have to say I love her as much as the cut & products. She is so sweet and giving and stayed late to finish my hair, never rushing and telling me not to worry, that she will stay late to make a customer love their hair. She is a generous, kind person and is wonderful with clients of all ages. I am truly impressed with she and Cathy. I would send any curly, kindred spirits to these two lovely ladies!

I have 3c curls and desperately needed a haircut. I had that triangle effect going on with a good amount of heat damage due to many years of using the flat iron. I had never cut my hair before other than trimming my ends and so I was nervous to go and have someone cut it. I made an appointment with Kathy and told her my issues. She was very attentive and listened to my concerns. I told her that I didn't want to go any shorter than to my collarbone. After we finished with the consultation she went to work. I must say that I LOVE MY HAIR!! She gave me a beautiful haircut. She then washed my hair, conditioned and styled with the Devacurl products. When I left, my hair was big (I love big hair with lots of volume) and beautiful. She was able to give the volume I like without my curls being frizzy, they were very well defined. I have had so many compliments on my hair since then. It's like I have different curls. I will definitely be going back in 3 months and I can say that I have found my new curly stylist. In addition, the staff there overall are just really nice and friendly. They make you feel comfortable which is something I needed since I was so nervous about getting my first real haircut. If you are in the Hampton Roads area and are looking for someone who can rock out your curls, I recommend going to Rudy and Kelly Hair Salon on S. Battlefield Rd in Chesapeake and check Kathy out. She definitely made me a client for life!

I have tight, corkscrew, 3c curls and scheduled an appoinment to get a devacut with Kathy. I had some severe heat damage in certain places and wanted as much cut out as possible without losing all of my length. I told her the shortest I would go without having a heart attack was to about collarbone length. Unlike some stylists I have had in the past, Kathy did not try to convince to me cut off more. She did exactly as I asked and gave me a BEAUTIFUL haircut. She then washed and styled my hair while explaining the curly girl method, one I was familiar with and following to a degree (using no sulfate shampoo and staying away from silicones). When she finished, my curls were AMAZING!!! I will definitely be going back in a few months to cut out the rest of the damage. I have definitely found my new curly girl stylist. I had soooo many compliments on my hair as I was leaving the salon. If you live in the Hampton Roads area and want a knowledgeable stylist to help tame your curls for a reasonable price, stop by Rudy and Kelly and ask for Kathy. She has definitely gained me as a permanent client.

Since having gone to the Devaschan Salon in Soho NYC 4 years ago, I had yet to find ANYONE in the HR area that knew how to cut, shape and treat wavy, curly hair. Thanks to this website I found Courtney who first gave me a thorough consultation before making an appointment with her. I am sure glad I did! Courtney's skills and creativity reveal her art training and background as well as her training in the Deva Curl methods. But its her warm, sweet personality that makes the whole experience such a worthwhile one. I especially appreciate the specific teaching of precisely how to use the products to address my hair's specific needs to get me the results I'd hoped for.......I will be scheduling my next visit to see Courtney and will be sending all of my curly friends to her as well!

I have used many salons over the years and never experienced so much attention and care to my curly hair as I receive from Courtney. My hair is thick and curly , which often takes longer than an average appointment. She does not rush through my visit, yet takes the time to cut and style it perfectly each time! I think it is beneficial that she, too, has curly hair and participates in ongoing training with products and technique.

I recently decided to cut all my hair off..I was fearful when I thought about it though, because it never fails that as soon as i get an urge to make a big change like this, I always immediately regret it, because it looks like I have literally as Courtney put it, "put my finger in the electric socket". I naturally have very dry, coarser texture to my curls, so the idea of having soft, touchable curls has always been something other women have, not me...until now. After reading about the amount of knowledge Courtney had about curls, I decided to take the plunge. As soon as I met her, all my nervousness went right down the drain! She truly has a natural flair and passion for curly hair, and after a makeover, and inches of my curls on the floor, not only was I educated about how to love and take care of my curls, but I was a NEW WOMAN! She didn't twist my arm about buying product, but after the passion that spilled out of her for the DEVA curl product line, it was an easy decision, and I went home with the 3 part system. I have been using it just like Courtney told me, and my hair is happier than ever..(and touchable even!!!)! Thank you for your time and expertise, you have gained a client for life!

This haircut was a birthday present to myself, and it was worth every penny! It's been more than ten years since I've been pleased with how my hair looks when curly - it just gets drier every year, and when I moved across the country to Virginia, it seems the change in water and climate didn't help matters. For two years I've been struggling until I finally decided to bite the bullet. It's no wonder that this salon has so many good reviews. Courtney was amazing: sweet, knowledgeable, understanding, realistic, and she certainly knows curly hair. Even though her curl is different from mine, she was able to deal effectively with the mess I went in with and I came out with beautiful curls I'm proud to show off now. She didn't have to "sell" me the Deva products - the fragrance alone was worth the investment, and since I've been using them my hair isn't nearly as dry as it has been and the curl holds up for the entire day. Anyone who's had a day where their hair has had them in tears owes themselves a visit to this salon and either Courtney or Kathy.

Anyone who has naturally curly hair knows the struggles with getting the right haircut, which goes hand-in-hand with finding the right person who knows how to cut curly hair. I have had so many bad haircuts, which resulted in coming home and crying everytime I looked in the mirror. Those days are over!! Since finding Kathy I no longer have those bad haircuts. She uses the Devacurl products on my very curly hair, as well as the Devacurl cutting technique. I now actually love my curls! I would highly recommend her to anyone without hesitation. If you live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia and have been searching for that person who knows how to cut curly hair, look no further.

I have been able to embrace my curls rather than cutting them so short as to control them or flat ironing them out of existence! She knows how to show my curls off with flattering styles and I can't thank her enough for her expertise!!

I always read reviews, but I never write them. In this case, I had to make an exception because Courtney is amazing, and she deserves praise. She cut, colored and styled my hair, and my naturally curly hair has never looked better.

I was skeptical at first when talking to the salon. A Curl Specialist...WHAT!...never heard of one! So I went into the salon and waited to talk to Courtney (being very causious) She spent a half hour talking to me and convinced me to let her just shampoo my hair with Deva no poo...no lather...yea right! Well...now I am hooked and right then and there I let her trim my hair and I have now embraced the curl...feel so free...my hair is not a time hog any longer! Thank you Courtney! YOU ROCK!

I found this salon at naturally curly, searching for someone who knew how to cut curly hair ,ever since I left CA. I just haven"t found anyone that really knows what they are doing so I just let my hair grow and grow , shapeless was at least better that a bad haircut.. Well then I sat in Kathy's chair and my search was finally over,she has had more years of experience and was totally honest about what I could achieve with my curls. She walked me through the Deva products that work for my hair and WOW I can't believe how much I love my curls and how much everyone else does too. I'm constantly getting asked about them and I send everyone to Kathy. Thank you Kathy for giving me back my curly shape.

I have lived 10min. away from this salon and never knew about it til I came on NC and read the great reviews. So I decided to give Courtney a try after receiving numerous "bad" cuts from people that just didn't know how to cut curly hair. She was great and evened my hair out as best as possible, so it now has a shape and can actually grow out and still look nice! She definitely knows what she's talking about when it comes to curly hair, which is a new one for me. I will definitely be going back!

Courtney is unbelievable! She has been my stylist for about a year and a half, since my husband and I relocated to the area. She is always encouraging, fun to be around, and knowledgable about all things curly. Courtney introduced me to the DevaCurl haircare line that has changed my life. Now my curls are bouncy and healthy, not dry and brittle. Each time I go to the salon, Courtney offers a suggestion of how to slightly change up my style to keep it fresh. Before Courtney I had never had a cut that I was completely happy with. A bonus about Courtney is that she offers free bang trims and can offer tips on styling when I get home. Having Courtney as a stylist is truly a blessing.

I have always worn my hair curly, but I fall in and out of love with my curls. My curls and I had been on the outs for a couple of years, after two back to back pregnancies, and a busy mommy schedule, my hair was up in a clip or a headband daily, and it was a mess. Never in my life have I left a salon after a cut and loved my hair. I usually end up restyling it when I get home. Courtney is incredible, she made me feel so comfortable, and I could tell right away that she "gets it". The combination of the skilled cut and the amazing Deva products she introduced me to it has completely changed my hair. I am madly in love with my curls again. I tossed away every other hair product I had in the bathroom. I am a Deva girl full time, and I will follow Courtney to the ends of the earth for her to cut my hair.

Courtney did a superior job of cutting and coloring my curly hair. She understands curly hair and is professionally qualified to surpass the expectations you have as you head into the salon. She enjoys her job and is happy to share tips she has learned to care for curly hair properly. I am very satisfied with the work Courtney does and will be back.

I came upon this particular salon by chance. I was fairly new to the area and had heard positive things, so, a bit over a year ago I went in and got hooked up with Courtney. I originally went in for a Keratin treatment to straighten my naturally curly hair. I was tired of fighting with it every day just to end up with it tied back or tucked under a hat. Courtney listened to my hair complaints and I could tell that she understood...she is a curly girl, herself. She told me of a product that would change my outlook regarding my curls. The product, Deva. I took her advice and did not opt for the Keratin treatment. She gave me a FAB cut! Never, in my life have I EVER came across such an amazing line of products for curls, and I have tried them all! I shampoo once a week or so. My daily routine has become SO easy and my hair looks BETTER than ever! I condition my hair every other day, use a microfiber towel or old t-shirt to get the drips out of my hair. I add the gel when Im in the shower and thats it! My curls have never looked more curly and beautiful. On day two (after sleeping on it), my hair still looks amazing. I add a little Mister Right curl refresher and i'm on my way. I am so happy with Courtney for introducing me to Deva. The product is amazing and so are her skills!

Kathy was possibly the best hairstylest yet. With her step-by-step process, the curly girl method and Devacurl line of products are unbelivably easy to comprehend. By far my most AMAZING hair appoitment yet. :D

I've been searching forever for someone to cut my hair right. Courtney was super knowledgeable, easy to talk to, listened and delivered exactly what I wanted. The salon itself is laid back yet professional. I've been getting compliments on my hair for the first time in my life really. I highly recommend her!

I think I'm a 2a. I have been wearing my hair curly for quite a while now, but I could never get a cut that worked with my wave. I was more than excited when I read the terrific reviews about Kathy and Courtney online. Kathy did my hair yesterday and I can't tell you how pleased I am. I went in with lank, tired hair that stuck to my head and only curled at the bottom & came out with amazing wave and curl from root to tip! It is so nice to find a stylist that knows the challenges curly girls face. I not only got a fabulous haircut, I got an education. Kathy did a terrific job of explaining the nature of curly hair. She explained what she was doing during the cut, shampoo, condition, styling, and defusing. I have a very clear idea of what to do know. She has a customer for life! I came home last night and scrunched my hair, laid on the couch, and when I got up I my hair was still bouncy and perky. I even had bounce and wave this morning when I woke up. Before, I had to be really careful not to flatten out my poor tired hair. How nice! I love the Deva product line. I plan to purchase the complete set & the hand shaped diffuser as well. The styling gel is amazing. It doesn't leave a hard wet finish. It's very natural looking & touchable. Kathy was very nice and so helpful. She answered all of my questions without even having to ask. The salon was very pretty and so clean. I clean for a living so I notice things like that. Everyone was friendly - a very pleasant atmosphere. Thanks Kathy! Please don't hesitate to make an appointment.It will be one of the best things you've ever done for yourself. :)

I am very pleased with Courtney's skills. She's knowledgeable about cutting & styling curly hair, and she listened to what I wanted in a haircut. She spent a great deal of time with me (my first cut at this salon), which I appreciated, because most stylists seem to rush through cuts. I would recommend her to anyone and plan on returning in the future. Reasonable prices as well. *Sidenote: They sell Deva products, which are hard to find at most salons. Another plus.

I was so blown away by the amount of knowledge this salon has on curls!!! From the moment I walked in the door I knew I was in the right place...Friendly greetings at the door, enthusiastic stylists, who were eager and wanted to make sure that I was going to fall in love with my curly hair! I have always struggled with my curls, and Deva has changed my world!!! Courtney and Kathy both, taught me the insides and outs of how to use the product line correctly, even down to the amount I use, and my daily routine. Since then, I have sent several curly friends, all of which have beenequally happy. It's been amazing to fight my hair my whole life, and finally find people who know my pain, and are actually happy to tackle my head of hair, rather than most stylists, who have fear written all over their face when you walk in, and let that pony tail holder drop out!!!!! At Rudy and Kelly Battlefield, you can tell they truly have a passion for their craft, and curls are definatly at the top of that list! I will not only be a life long Deva user, but will ALWAYS land into Courtney or Kathy's chair! My hair has never looked so wonderful!

I was pleasantly surprized when I got a haircut with Kathy for the first time. I found this salon through the Devacurl website. She was very knowledgeable and follows the curly girl book like a bible! She even had one in the salon by the magazines. I was very impressed because they charge reasonable prices and Kathy knows how to do the Devacut. I am extremely picky with my hair because I have had alot of bad haircuts, but she did a great job and I am relieved I didn't have to educate her about the curly girl book.
