She's my mother. She's been cutting hair for over forty years! She is a curly girl and I'm a curly girl (and my daughter is a curly girl so she'll be giving her her first cut!) She's always cut my hair before anyone ever heard about Deva, etc... she's cut it dry, doing individual curls and I've always gotten THE BEST cuts from her. Her scissors are like magic, and her poor hands have put in the years to show for all the great cuts, styles, and transformations she's given.
