My hair cut with JoAnne at Salon Nani was fabulous! I was visiting Fort Collins for the entire summer and my hair was in desperate need of a cut. She cut it dry, using the Deva method, shaped it well, and gave me new ideas for moisturizing and styling my 3b hair. She also gave me a set of clips so I can lift the roots as my hair air dries. This was my first Deva cut, though I've been a fan of the Curly Girl book since high school. I thought the $75 price was worth it. Joanne is gracious, friendly, and incredibly knowledgable. So glad that I found her salon on this site! I highly recommend her for other curly girls in the area.
I moved about 6 months ago and was not happy about needing to find someone who knows how to cut curly hair. I stumbled across a previous review on this website and figured I'd give it a shot. It was the best decision I ever made! JoAnne is Deva certified and extremely skilled. She taught me more about hair and the Deva process than any other certified stylist I have encountered in the past (there were many!). She cut my hair dry, made sure I was happy with the shape, then color, wash, style, and dry! She taught me to use clips to get volume in the sections that tend to lay flat. JoAnne has a customer in me for as long as I'm in town. I recommend her without hesitation! All those with curly hair, trust her! She is fabulous!
Salon Nani is a Deva certified salon in old town, Ft Collins. It is VERY small, and the owner JoAnne is very skilled at cutting curly hair. Here is why I would recommend this salon: 1. The stylist, JoAnne, really took the time to sit down and listen to what I had to say. She had a nice attitude, and although I was having a bit of a bad hair day when I went to get it dry-cut, she saw past it and was able to bring out the curl. 2. She does not do exclusively Deva cuts. If you do not like your deva cut, she will re-cut and style your hair the traditional way, no extra cost. 3. Although the price was expensive, $75, I felt it was fair because the cut took such a long time to do. Also, she is willing to negotiate price if it's just simply too much. She started out very slowly with my hair cut; just trimming off the very ends. When I wanted it shaped with more layers, she willingly put them in, slowly. This practice of starting out conservatively is essential to preventing a bad haircut. In the end, my hair was both trimmed and layered to my liking. I will be coming back to her again!
