Karen is a gem! I went to her for a Deva cut (my second, my first was at another salon) and she took her time getting to know me and my hair before cutting. She asked a lot of questions and discussed options with me. She did cut it dry and the shape of the cut turned out really well. I've been using the Deva products and talked about my routine and products. She still walked through the three step cleansing/care routine and I think that was very helpful. This is my new stylist. She's definitely a keeper.
Karen is a gem! This was my first visit with her and she definitely took her time to get to know me and my hair before cutting. She asked a lot of questions and discussed options with me. The extra time really paid off. This is a much better cut than my previous diva cut at a different salon. She walked through the diva process with me even though I'd been using the products. The recap was helpful and I got a few new tips. This is where I'll be going from now on and I just wish I'd found the salon and her sooner.
Searched for a salon in my area who had stylists certified in cutting & styling hair with the Deva Concepts (DevaCurl) method. The only salon near me was Mixed Elements; they have two stylists who can "DevaCurl" your hair. I made an appt for my daughter (type 3b/c) with Karen. Lucky us! She did a super job, and my daughter is back in love with her curly mane. The entire Deva Cut process took about 1.5 hours, and cost $90. Curly hair is cut DRY, curl-by-curl, then styled. The money and time spent is COMPLETELY worth it. I am making an appt with Karen, for the same Deva Curl process, as soon as I can. If you're not familiar with the Deva concept, research it. It's legit, and Mixed Elements can deliver it to you.
