I cannot count how many times I have heard someone with straight hair tell me "Oh, I wish I had curly hair" and I'd reply "I wish I had straight hair" but since my cut with Summer I don't say that anymore! I love my curls, finally! I was nervous having my hair cut dry but what did I have to lose? Every other salon I have been too wanted to straighten my hair which was a losing battle that dried my hair and took forever. Summer is so nice and friendly and made me feel comfortable from my first visit. She took time to explain how to wash, condition, add product and style my hair. The steps broke me of bad habits, made styling easy and it lasts for days, plus my hair is so much healthier. When I came back for my free follow up she answered my questions and offered to show me how to tie it up with scarves and clips. I cannot say enough about how amazing my experience with Summer has been. If you have never had a curly cut you are missing out on amazing results! Thank you so much Summer!

I was tired of frizz and bad cuts that left my curls all uneven so I decided to try CGW and Summer for a stylist. She was wonderful, explained everything she was doing and why, made recommendations for styling and caring for my hair and the final result was totally different from when I walked in. My hair actually looked and felt moisturized and healthy. I won't go anywhere else for a haircut again, and the Devacurl products are a must have for me!

This was the first time I'd had my hair cut dry, and wasn't sure what to expect. Summer was very cheerful and attentive while showing me how to properly wash and care for my hair. I told her I'd like to have a lot cut off of the length (like 8+ inches) and she listened and confidently went about doing so. Having my hair cut dry was amazing as I got to see how long it really was as she cut it!! Summer did a great job!!! Since my appointment, I've started cowashing and stopped using products with sulfates/cones and my hair has never looked more healthy. I am even able to let my hair air dry without it getting all flat and limp. (Previously I'd only been able to get bouncy curls when using a diffuser.) Thanks to this salon, I am learning to really love my hair. I'll definitely have Summer do my hair again!

I have been terrified of getting my hair cut since the last stylist I had messed my very curly hair up. I LOVED the experience I had at curls Gone Wild and I Loved my stylist even more. Summer is AMAZING!!!! She walked me through what she was doing step by step and achieved the look I was looking for like a breeze she really listened to my concerns and I now love getting my hair cut!!!!! I am so amazed!!!!

Summer fixed the terrible shape my previous stylist (who always wanted to straighten my hair) had given it. She walked me step by step through the process she was doing, and also asked lots of questions about my current routine. She gave great advice but didn't pressure me to change too much, too soon. I can't wait to go back!

I was really hesitant at first to try a new place because of the many bad haircuts I've had, but after a recommendation from a coworker and reading reviews, I decided to give this salon a try. My stylist was Summer and she was great. From the minute Summer greeted me she had a smile on her face and was very attentive. She took the time to teach me about my hair and examined the regimen I currently use for my hair to look for areas to improve the health of my hair. Summer was genuinely interested in what I wanted on how my hair regimen must fit into my schedule for getting ready for work. Summer was also willing to answer any questions I had. I am extremely pleased with her service and with my hair. Summer cut every single strand taking into consideration that they all curl differently, which made for an awesome style. I will definitely be going back.

Thank you, thank you to Summer at Curls Gone Wild! I embarked on a mission almost a year ago to accept and love my curly locks. I’d just grown tired of the time it takes to straighten my hair and the damage I was doing to my hair. When I had some lucky curly days, I really did enjoy my hair but I couldn’t master this consistently causing me to go back to straightening or just living with out of control curls. I’ve been through plenty of products thinking this was the solution to be found for healthy, lively, and frizz free curls. Most of the time, I was just tolerant of my hair and not truly happy with the way it looked or made me feel. After some desperate internet research for an alternate solution, I decided it was time to find someone who truly and professionally specialized in curly hair cuts. Well I had no idea that such a specialty existed because I’ve had many stylists claim to know how to cut curly hair but I’d always end up walking out the door with a cut designed for straight hair. I don’t want to bash my past stylists because they really did do a great job assuming I was going to wear my hair straight all the time, however, after my cut with Summer at CGW, I now realize the difference in training. Thanks again Summer for going through each step with me and giving me an awesome cut! I love it! Many thanks to Deva Curl products as well - love, love, love. It’s only been four days since my cut but my hair already feels so much healthier by following Summer’s tutorial and I’m loving it more and more. See you for my next cut and all the rest after that!

Like another reviewer here on the site, I've never really considered my hair to be curly - waivy, yes - but curly?? I've struggled for so long for someone -anyone - to give me a haircut so that I could easily style my hair (which is really thick and now I know, curly!) Of course, all they wanted to do was cut my hair and straighten it with a flat iron and I even kept that up for quite a few months...but it just became too much and spending 45-90 minutes on my hair was way too much time!! THEN, my mom found Curls Gone Wild and I made my first appointment with Lea!!! It's been two weeks, my hair is curlier than ever and it takes me 17 minutes - from shower to door - to do my hair! You can ask her, as well, I was COMPLETELY shocked at how curly my hair was and now, I'm hooked! I've even purchased the book :) This place is a must for Curly Girls and Lea is one of the best!!

Crystal is the best! I had always wanted someone to dry cut my curls, but never found a stylist who was willing or knew how to do it. After suffering through a lifetime of awful haircuts I found Curls Gone Wild on the Naturally Curly Website. I have been going to Crystal for around 1 1/2 years now and have never been disappointed. My love/hate relationship now tends to be towards the love side. Crystal cuts my hair beautifully, adds shape and volume, and taught me soooo much about my hair. I trusted her so much I let her dye my hair and haven't looked back! She makes you feel like the only one in the salon, has a great memory, and I consider her a girlfriend now, not just my stylist. I have recommended this salon to many people and will continue to do so. Ask for Crystal!!!! She's the best!

I've never considered my hair curly until a girlfriend told me about the place where she got her hair colored and styled. I figured I would give it a try. It's a far drive for me but I went. After my initial visit with the owner Melanie (fantastic by the way) she had a stylist watch over her as she was doing my hair. Second visit I saw Crystal...and needless to say she is stuck with me now. Crystal is so knowledgable with all types of hair and products. I saw curls I never thought I had! I always leave with a smile. I started bringing my oldest son in to see her too. Thanks Crystal!!

My daughter has very dry corkscrew curls. I have been searching for a place to learn how to grow and manage her curls. I was extremely happy to meet Crystal at Curls gone Wild. She was very helpful and explained in great detail what she was doing and why. I was really impressed with her knowledge of curls especially African-American curls. The staff was very nice and the atmosphere was friendly. I would highly recommend Crystal to anyone that would like help, taming those beautiful curls. Thanks again Crystal for all the advice and for answering all of my questions. You are definitely worth the trip from Scottsdale.

I thought I had straight hair my whole life until about six months ago when I noticed a slight wave in my hair. After doing some research and reading up on the Curly Girl method, it became wavier. I decided to try out this salon because my hair needed to be cut and it had so many great reviews. Lea walked me through every single step she took and explained what was best to use on my hair. When my hair dried, it was curlier than I had ever seen it before! I am extremely picky about haircuts...to the point where I usually just cut my hair myself most of the time. Lea cut my hair exactly the way I wanted it, and I am so happy to find a stylist that knows what she's doing. Because this was my first time at the salon, I paid the introductory $60, but it included a free 'refresher' visit. If you go to this salon, be sure to go back for the refresher visit! I went a few days later and thought it would be slightly a waste because I remembered exactly what she did 3 days prior. I was wrong! I had completely forgotten about using a paper towel to get the water out of my hair, and I was able to actually get hands-on experience in the refresher visit. I put my own gel in my hair and learned how to put the clips in (which is harder than it looks!). Now I'm able to do my hair on my own and it looks fantastic! Once my friend saw the difference in my hair, she made an appointment the next day with Melanie and came out with such amazing curls. I've known her for over 20 years, and I've never seen her hair curl like that before! I highly recommend this salon, the stylists, and the products they use. When I went home and used my usual products, my hair fell flat again. I immediately went out and purchased the DevaCurl line and my curls are bouncy again. :)

After a year of transitioning, I finally decided to cut off my relaxed ends. If I would have found Melanie and Curls Gone Wild earlier, I could have saved myself the grief of dealing with two textures and had an awesomely chic hair cut months ago. Melanie was awesome and this salon is top notch! Everyone was warm and friendly, respectful of the salon and caring towards customers. Melanie walked me through the process while explaining proper technique and maintenance. She cut away the relaxed ends, washed / conditioned my hair and then reshaped my cut. Melanie definitely took care of my Af-Am 4a tight coils! She gave me a great hairstyle that framed my face, let my curls pop, and was absolutely adorable. It has to be one of the best haircuts I've ever had. I highly recommend Melanie and Curls Gone Wild. If you are transitioning or have natural hair, you can't go wrong.

My appointment was at 9:30am. I waited about 15 minutes. Priscilla was also doing a color on another client but I didn't feel like she was rushing either one of us. This is my first time getting a dry cut and I really enjoyed the experience. I'm 50years old and have never ever left the salon feeling pretty, but I felt really pretty leave this salon. Priscilla took the time to explain the steps, answered all my questions. She washed,conditioned, explained the gel cast and blew my hair dry then explained she she thought I needed to do with my hair. I felt so comfortable I told her to do whatever she wanted to do. I have long hair down to mid-back. She cut about 3-4 inches off and when she was done my hair was full, bouncy and so beautiful. It didn't feel like I had alot of product in it, it wasn't itchy or sticky just bouncing with loose waves, curls. I drove over 20 miles for this appointment and plan to go back. Great experience. Thank you Priscilla.

I've been looking for a natural salon forever, and i guess i'll continue to look for one that can do MY ethnic hair. She wasn't horrible. I went in for a consultation but i feel like she wasn't to sure what to do with my 4a/b textured hair. She asked me if i had any questions and didn't really take time to look at my hair. I have problems with split ends and single strand knots. She kept telling me a lot of things i already knew about my hair, and what it is to be natural because i've done lots of research. Im looking for someone to cut my dead ends, not cut it into a style. If i had the luxury of spending $60 on a hair cut i may not like or care for, then i would get it but this salon may be on hold for a while for me. I am very cautious of hair stylist with my course/kinky hair. She recommended hair products to me that were more expensive than the ones i already buy so, i left kinda dissapointed that i wasn't 30 minutes, but hey its better than wasting $60. I think this salon is more for people with 3C hair & down.

I had a wonderful experience with Ashlan and Curls Gone Wild. First, the salon and every stylist there is cuter than the bee's knees. Seriously. When I arrived, I was taken straight back by Ashlan. She asked me a lot of questions about my hair, and made sure that I understood the process of dry cutting before she started. The Devacurl way of cutting/styling is TOTALLY different than anything I have ever heard of before. Let me tell you, it works! Ashlan went through the process with me and I felt very confident trying it myself at home. I did it myself today, and I have the softest, springiest curls all over my head. I can't even believe I had this much curl just dying to come out! I don't EVER plan on blow-frying my hair again! Thanks Ashlan, and I will see you in June for a trim!

Crystal was fantastic! I went into the salon with one thing in mind, not knowing really anything about the salon and their techniques. But after talking with Crystal for maybe 5 minutes, I trusted her completely and realized she knew what she was doing. I just told her to do what she thought was best. I have been blow drying my hair for quite a while now and was ready to give it up. I did like my curls but didn't know how to deal with them, and neither did several previous hair stylists. Crystal explained the steps very clearly and was very patient with me. I had no idea about dry cutting curly hair and thought it was crazy to saturate my hair with gel! I thought it would make my hair heavy and flat. Just the opposite happened. I am so pleased with my hair cut and so happy not to be using my blow dryer and flat iron! Crystal is knowledgeable about types of hair, different cutting techniques, products, and tips of the trade. She is passionate about her profession and gave 100% to me as her client. I went to work the next day and received so many compliments! I gave Crystal's information to two different women who have hair similar to mine. A couple of people didn't say anything about my hair, but asked if I had lost weight! Wow, that's the icing on the cake! Crystal is truly an artist so from one artist to another, Thank you! I'll be back!

I have been fearing hairstylist all my life! I've had the worst haircuts a curly girl can get. All of that changed when I came across this cute salon! Not only was the salon a cute comfy atmosphere but the girls are all very cute and friendly. Priscilla showed me a process that brought out my curls WITHOUT frizz! I have never seen my curls that way. She then cut it dry and it was the best cut I've ever had! Why can't hairstylist learn dry cuts? It would have made my life so much easier. I'm just so happy I finally found a stylist and salon!

I just had my first visit today and will be back. I would recommend it to anyone. You think that you know about your curly hair, or what works or doesn't work for you, but I learned a lot today and am happy with my haircut. This is the best cut I have ever had, and I feel like with practice I will be able to recreate it at home. I at ease right away with Crystal; she was kind, asked the right questions, explained what she was doing and why (also what not to do). She did a dry cut and cut every single curl on my head, I have never had that done before. I had read about it and was so excited with the results. My husband loves it, and I have been getting compliments on the photos I posted. Thanks Crystal and Curls Gone Wild!

Let me start from the beginning. I heard about this place from a co worker and she loved the education she received, but hated the cut. She reccomeneded me to come to this place because she thought maybe it was just her. So I looked up on the internet, went to the website and did my research. I finally decided to call, and the receptionis was very rude, and short. So I thought, okay, maybe shes having a bad day. Nope, I was wrong. And the receptionist happen to also be the owner, who was also my styist. Dont get me wrong, I like the small buisness atmosphere, however I dont expect the owner of a salon to be rude. Melanies assistant had no clue what she was doing, and seemed like she was hung over, or totally out of it. She barely touched me, and rinsed very quickly. She sopped my hair with gel, and it was digusting. Then she pinned my hair, without going over anything with me, and when I asked what she was going, she acted annoyed. How rude! After that, I sat under a dryer, for what seemed to be an eternity. It was between 45 min and an hour. Then she sat me in a chair, where I waited for 15 min without even being talked to. The salon wasnt even busy. When I FINALLY saw my stylist, Melanie was rude, condescending, and trying to cut me down. The cut was horrible, uneven, and ugly! UGH! I had to go down the street to Luxe, and see Jodi to fix it! If you are looking for a good stylist, go there!!!!

For years, I spent time bouncing from salon to salon - trying to find a place that knew how to deal with curly hair. After getting my hair done by Priscilla, I've learned that every person that told me they knew how to cut curly hair was lying. I absolutely love my hair cut, and I cannot wait to grow my hair out, and have more to enjoy! I left this review a little on the short side - only because I felt the need to write a blog about this as well. I saw another review where this was done, and I think it's a great touch. So here it is: http://jbsaidso.tumblr.com/post/7533279922/finally-i-am-not-afraid-of-my-hair Anybody with curly hair that needs things taken care of - I absolutely recommend Curls Gone Wild.

I went in for highlights, which I got, but she also gave me a few ideas for next time about how to save some money. She really seemed like she cared and was looking out for my best interest.

WOW!! This is one of the best words to describe this salon! I have struggled with my curly hair for my entire life and at 30, I have finally learned to appreciate my curls and have these amazing women to thank. I have tried every type of relaxer, including the Brazilian Blowout, and was left with some damaged hair and an empty pocketbook. Priscilla gave a great education on how to work with the curly hair that I have, and how to make the most of its texture. I now have an awesome cut and color, learned how to use the 'no poo' method, and Priscilla even took into account that I am a marathon runner, and taught me ways to work with my curly hair while I am running and done working out. I used to have to factor in dry time for my hair, time allowed to flat iron, etc, but no longer. I live in North Phoenix, and the drive out to this salon is well worth it.

Melanie was recommended to me by two friends whose hair looked fabulous; & they have straight hair ! They told me I should go as I have very curly hair,& she specializes in curly hair. I was dying my own hair at the time (not too well;as I'm a redhead,who has gone extremely blond;so my dye efforts kept coming out very bight red) Also I kept trying to grow my hair; which is very difficult for curly haired people,but it was too thin;so did not look good! So no easy task; Melanie had to deal with unruly curly; thin to a point of balding on top,& faded strawberry blond hair!! This was one year ago,& she did an amazing job. I'v been going ever since,& referring other people to her: including my 10yr old daughter; whose hair has recently become very curly,& now looks beautiful;as she used to pull it back in a ponytail,with berets ,&I you'd never know she had curly hair hidden there! She used to be so embarrassed,& now she loves it ! My hair looks thicker,healthier,& far better shorter.The color is perfect;& I get compliments all the time. I never used to use a hairdryer,as all I could obtain was frizz as a result; but Melanie soon corrected that, & I know blew dry it all the time,& have much more volume. Her new salon is very trendy,& all the staff very friendly. Go check it out for yourself. Her prices are also the best I'v ever known; very reasonable.I never could afford salon prices before ,& so avoided going; plus stylists could never manage my hair well. Thanks Mel, you're the best.

I have known Melanie for over five years now and after I found her I would NEVER go anywhere else. She has given me so many fantastic ideas about my hair and is fair and honest. Since I have been going to Melanie I have saved money, learned tricks of the trade and learned I don't need to wash my hair. Yes I said it, I don't wash my hair anymore. I cleanse it! Washing my hair was causing my hair to become dry and hard to manage and style. I also don't cleanse it more than every couple of days. I'm so amazed by all the styling tricks Melanie has showed me and all her knowledge. She truly cares about her customers and loves what she does. I trust her and thank her for all her help. I'm also glad she hired Priscella she is wonderful too.

Melanie Brown and the other stylists at Curls Gone WIld are the best stylists I have ever had. They are extremely customer oriented and they really know their stuff! I can be what some would consider a "difficult" client because I can be indecisive yet hard to please. Yet I am ALWAYS happy with my results when I leave Curls Gone WIld. I have been so happy there that I have referred several people to go to Curls Gone WIld. Melanie really listens to what the client wants but can also give valuable input on what would look best on the client. She, and the other girls, will do whatever it takes to make sure the client leaves feeling beautiful. They specialize in a "curly cut" where they give a specialized haircut for curly hair and will give a lesson to the client on how to style curly hair. And they will spend however long it takes to make sure the client leaves being able to do their own hair at home. And the salon is more than just a place to get your hair done, it is a fun place to gab and hang out! If you are looking for the best salon for curly hair and straight hair alike then Curls Gone WIld is it!

I have been to Devachan in NY and Ouidad in Scottsdale. I was getting tired of driving to Scottsdale and so I decided to check out Curls Gone Wild. I only wanted to get my hair styled, since there cann't be no harm done with that. However after talking to Melanie I decided to get a haircut. This ended up being the best haircut I ever had. My hair is a tight corkscrew curl and very difficult to cut. Melanie new exactly how to handle it and also showed me some new tricks. I really love this place. I am so glad I found it. Now I don't have to drive so far and the pricing is better too!

I picked up Melanie's business card at a local restaurant and was surprised to find that there is a salon that caters to curly hair...and conveniently located for me! After so many years of frustration with hairstyles for "straights" that looked good walking out of the salon but that I could never quite duplicate at home, it has been great to finally let my curl do it's own thing. My hair was either bushy, frizzy or smoothed with rollers, a curling iron or flat iron. Before I ever styled my own hair as a child, my mother gave me home perms to control it! So, it's been enlightening to discover that during my whole life I had never really known the true nature of my curl. Unlike many stylists, Melanie has spent a generous amount of time actually teaching me how to style my hair. It's been nearly a year and half since I first met Melanie in her (former) tiny shoebox sized salon and I'm still going back every 4-6 weeks as a "Color Club" member in her now spacious, bright and fun salon! She's always adding a new touch to the salon which lately has even included staff members. Watching the salon's transformation is a treat in itself! Love you Melanie!

I found this salon thru a client of mine. I've let my hair go naturally silver and have been growing out the very very short cut I had to make the transition from color to natural easier and quicker. Having said that, my hair does it's very best when it is all 1 length about to the shoulders; but getting it there is a challenge. Priscilla spent a great deal of time with me, encouraging me, instructing me, and helping me thru this tough phase. I told her she wouldn't see me again for about 3 months (April). Believe me, she knows her stuff and I'll be on the phone come April 1 to make my next appointment with her. It's clear that she understands the sping, the bounce and the patterns of curls. I highly recommend the Salon and Priscilla!

I have spent years trying to find a salon that knew what to do with my curly hair. I have had so many bad haircuts I've lost count. Each stylist insisted they knew how to cut my hair, and they tried, but they really had no idea how to work with curly hair. In fact I was getting to the point where my curls were more frizz than anything. I had just had another haircut that just didn't work with my hair, and was wondering what I was going to do. Then I found Curls Gone Wild. Melanie and Priscella know what they are doing. They knew exactly how to cut my hair. And the process they use for styling is phenomenal. Instead of using 3 or 4 different products that don't work, I am now using 1 product that does! They go through each step, explaining the product they are using, and how to use it. I never thought it could be so easy. I can't say it enough....I love my hair! I have had sooooooooo many compliments!!! My curls are back, I love the cut, and my hair is healthier than it has been in a long time.. I have, and will continue, to recommend Melanie and Priscella at Curls Gone Wild!

Finally! A devachan salon in the valley. No more going to L.A. No more going to the Bay. No more waiting for that trip to New York that never happens. No more whining about how there's no one who knows how to cut curly, kinky, crinkly Black, Asian, Latina, Pacific Islander (fill in the blank) hair in this desert. I went to Melanie. She was great! I first got my hair cut at Devachan in NYC and this is the best styling I've had since then. No, it's not NYC Devachan but Melanie is excellent. She listened to my concerns and she knew exactly what she was doing. I usually leave the salon and have to go home and wet my hair again because it looks like I stuck my finger in a socket (I'm not against looking like I stuck my finger in a socket but it's usually not in a good way)but Melanie uderstood how wet the hair needs to be when products are applied. I wish I could keep this place a secret but I want it to stay in business. Praise be to the hair goddess, and her name is Melanie.

My experience with Melanie was NOT a positive experience. I made an appointament for a hair cut. Melanie didn't even touch my hair before declaring I didn't need a cut, but did need "face framing highlights". She did the highlights, then wanted me to schedule an appointment for a haircut in" a few days". I had not had a cut in 6 months and clearly need one. She colored my hair without even asking me the history of my hair. The highlights look good. It is very clear Melanie loves doing color, however if you need a cut perhaps another stylists would better serve your needs. I won't be going back.

This was my first curly girl haircut and highlight and Melanie was an absolute pleasure to be with. It was really interesting to see the way they cut curly hair one curl at a time. She really knows alot about curls since she has 3 daughters with curly hair. She answered all my questions and gave me all the Deva styling tips plus more to make my hair the most curly I'd ever seen, withour pushing me to buy new products. She gave me some new tips on highlighting my hair that actually saved me money! How many stylist would do that when they are making less money. She said "less is more & the simpler the better!" Right on! Way to go Melanie!

Due to my unique curl (wavy on top, corkscrew on sides, and a more kinky in back), I have been cutting my own hair for roughly 20 years. I have let only a few stylists attempt to cut my hair within the last 20 years, only to be disappointed and end up cutting down to a size 1 clipper all around (near-bald). I finally let Melanie cut my hair, and I can honestly say it was the best hair cut I have ever received. This includes all the barbershops, upscale salons... and even the ones I did myself! I really appreciate how she pays particular attention to my headshape (as it far from perfectly round), to give my head and hair a more rounded appearance. Thank you Melanie!

After many, many years of fighting the curls and paying sooo much money for bad haircuts and ineffective, expensive product, I discovered the Massey system, but couldn't locate anyone who knew how to properly cut coarse, frizzy curls like mine.

Melanie is a true Curly Girl expert. I had been looking for a new stylist for a while, one who knows how to work with curly hair, who is an excellent colorist, and, in this economy, doesn't charge and arm and a leg for her services. I first read about Melanie in the local paper. Her salon, "Curls Gone Wild", offered a "Happy Hour" on Friday afternoons from 4 p.m. tp 6 p.m. for curly girls to come in and try out her services for $15.00. I thought that that was such ingenious marketing that 1) I couldn't pass it up, and 2) thought that the gal who came up with it must have a good head on her shoulders. She is all that and much more. Her salon is pleasant to be in, she knows what she's doing, my hair has never looked better, and her prices are right (especially the color club for touch-ups), Also, Priscilla, her assistant in curls is very good as well. I pass out Mel's card like M & M's. She is located in Old Town Gilbert near Flancers Try her, youll like her! And you won't even have to break your piggy bank!

Like most CGs I longed for someone to be able to cut and style my hair the right way and with courtsey to Yelp.com I was able to find a salon with many CG specialists. Now, I have 2c/3aCii type hair and at the time my hair was extremely straw like and with a certain style. I a definte triangle head and hated it. Priscella and Melanie guided me through the CG process and explained everything from the DevaCurl products they feature to the way to they cut and style CG hair. I was so at awe with how my hair turned out and it didn't break the bank either! I got a Devacut, style,and all over color for about 90 with tip! I went home and followed everything we spoke about, but was having trouble with the duck bill clips. I called Curls Gone Wild and asked if they had any tips for me, Priscella said to come in and they go over the steps in person so I gott it down right. How amazing is that?!? I went in and with no charge my problem was fixed...I ended leaving educated about my new look and with a handful of Devacurl products! Since then I have highly recommened many of my CG friends and family to go visit Curls Gone Wild. It is a great salon with fantastic stylists! I have finally found "My Salon and Stylist" that I have always longed for...

I went to see what all the hype was about and received A+++++ treatment from Priscilla. She was absolutely the best stylist I have had in the past 25 years. She was very knowledgeable and confident and demonstrated a very strong talent. She was definately born to cut hair and Melanie should be very proud to have her on staff. I will forever be faithful to this salon and will be bringing all of my curly girls with me! I have already booked my next 6 appointments! I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I read some of her reviews and came across a 2 star rating. Everyone one is entitled to their opinion, but YES the salon opened in May, do you really expect them to have 10-15 stylists by now?!? Every business starts small and Curls Gone Wild is on the right track and is building a strong customer base. If you did not listen to a single word Priscilla said when she was teaching you how to manage your hair, that is YOUR fault. Maybe you need to come in again and give her another shot. It may very well be the best decision you have made.

I went to this salon, because it was on Yelp, and she showed me what to do with my curly hair. The FIRST time ever that anyone had shown me that. Before this day, I was told to straighten it, or to use curling iron, it always turned out frizzy and uncontrollable. It is not the same looking on internet for instruction as it is to have someone to show you and explain in detail which she did. I bought the book and read it per her recommendation, but still it was her spending the time to show me. She has a great personality and I will recommend her to every curly girl I know. I am now using that method, have not mastered it yet, but it was truly educational. sincerely Bita Braeuer Gilbert Arizona

I have spent a decade trying to pretend I don't have curly hair.With all of the damage I had done, I was left with dry, brittle hair that would break easily. My curls were frizzy and ugly. To say I was frustrated would be an understatement. I was ready to just accept that hats were an accessory that I could make work with every outfit. However, I received a flier in the mail with the name Curls Gone Wild. Well I am here to say miracles do exist. Pricilla took her time and explained to me what she was doing, and even more importantly what I needed to be doing. I was amazed when she turned me around to look in the mirror when she was done. My hair was beautiful! The true test was going home to my husband, who never notices when I do something different to my hair. This time he definitely noticed.

After reading the online reviews and seeing the news demonstrations for this salon, I was really excited! Unfortunately, this salon did not live up to my expectations. First, the salon has only been open for a few months, Priscilla has been trained by Melanie and is the only stylist other than Melanie. Priscilla has only been wearing her own hair curly since the salon opened. Melanie has straight hair. I feel like Priscilla is the token curly haired stylist. Second, the stylist didn't listen to me and my concerns. When Priscilla was shampooing my hair, I let her know that my hair gets weighed down by lots of product. She didn't listen and left in the conditioner (I do not have super dry or damaged hair). She then proceeded to put about 10 pumps of gel from an industrial sized container into my hair, along with 2 other products. I normally use about half a pump from this same sized bottle at home. Third, the stylist cut my hair crooked. Priscilla cut my hair after it was dried/styled by her. The left side was about 1 inch longer than the other side- not intentionally. Unfortunately, I didn't notice this before I left and was very disappointed when I got home. When I got home, my hair was sooooo oily and stringy that my boyfriend refused to touch it (I didn't even want to touch it) and insisted that I wash it out before going to bed. The salon's motto is that you can just ADD MORE PRODUCT the next day to wrangle your curls. I didn't even want to go back to have them fix it because I was so worried. Very disappointing.

I first had my curly cut in Columbus Ohio only weeks before moving out west. And I thought "Oh great, 30 years of curl nothingness and I finally find something good and NOW..... I move and start all over." So coming to Arizona I found one spot that offered the curly cut. Not only was it high priced and extremely "uppity", the cut was always crooked and choppy. I had referred a friend who similarly had poor experiences and we felt bad admitting it to each other. UNTIL her hair was completely botched less than a month before her wedding. AND THEN I found Melanie with Curls Gone Wild. I cannot say enough great things about Melanie, the atmosphere, the PRICE, and the REAL-NESS of the salon. I started to swear that the dryness of the weather in Arizona was making my hair go straight. Or was it a thyroid thing? Or maybe the "things change at age 30" thing. Either way I was sad to lose my curls and hopped from stylist to stylist eventually finding Curls Gone Wild right here in Gilbert. Melanie is so down to earth and full of this raw, vibrant energy. People ALL over were commenting on my hair. "Oh it's so curly", "How do you do that?", "I wish I had curly hair", "where do you go?".... Seriously. I was torn between embarrassment and disbelief in the "you have to be kidding me" way. Women in shopping lines (more than a handful of times), moms of my pediatric clients I see weekly, friends, bartenders, even the girl that drew my blood at a local lab. Curls Gone Wild is a small business, started with a lot of heart and optimism.

In my 38 years I have never visted a salon more than once....until I went to curls gone wild and met melanie. On my first visit, she gave me a thorough consultation...and did not rush me. I have always been told my hair had to be long because it was too wavy/coarse to cut short and it would just poof out and look like a triangle. Melanie said if you know how to cut wavy/coarse hair it is possible. And she did it! I have a short style that looks like I do not have problem hair! She knew the exact type of hair I had and even was able to look at me (with natural dark brown hair) and know that I was blonde when I was little! I am so pleased with my new look! She is also an expert colorist and gave my dark brown hair the perfect highlights...without looking orange!

Melanie is a godsend to clueless people with curly hair. Growing up, my straight-haired mother didn't know what to do with my curls other than keep all of my unruly hair in braids or pigtails. In my teens, I "learned" how to straighten my hair (and even went so far as to use a clothes iron when needed) and that I liked my hair so much better straight (well, as straight as I could get it). I always hated the halo of frizz that surrounded my head and felt like if it wasnt straight and shiny that I just wasn't pretty. Fast forward to my 40's and me finding Melanie. Not only did she teach me how to care for my curls and to embrace them, but she gives a great cut and also is so patient with my curly-headed two year old boy. I have NEVER, even straight haired with the latest styles, received SO many compliments about my hair. I LOVE my curls and am so proud of them, all thanks to Melanie. I hope that Melanie will never leave the east valley as I don't think I could ever see a different stylist. Thanks Melanie for everything!

By a fluke I got Melanie as a hairstylist at the salon where I use to get my haircut. I'm very particular about my curly hair and would always put off cutting my hair because no one knew how to cut my hair, and if I got it cut I would ALWAYS have them blow my hair straight. When I first met Melanie I told her to blow it straight for me, but she told me how beautiful my curl was and to let her style it for me. I was kind of standoffish at first but I said OK. Well when she was done it looked great and my husband even liked it. She was pregnant at the time I first met her and was greatly disappointed when I went back she was no longer there. I found her again and will NEVER have anyone else touch my her. Her knowledge of hair texture is amazing. I'm so proud to show my fresh haircut off after she has done it. People ask me all the time if she does anything but curly hair. I tell them she is an expert in curly hair, but with her knowledge of hair, I'm sure no one would ever walk out of her salon with a bad haircut.

I have fought my hair for years since I was a young girl. I am now in my late 40's and was offered a cut to accent my curls. It has been 6 months since my first visit to Melanie and Pricilla...I absolutely love my new hair but more importantly my new friends. I am very blessed to have some who would show me how to work my hair vs. fight my hair into styles that are popular but not meant for my hair type. We joke about a 12 step program to kick our old hair habits. I enjoy the new look and my new friends !! Thanks Melanie and Pricilla

Melanie is the first stylist who has ever worked with me styling my curly coarse hair, all of the other hair stylist I've been to just wanted to blow dry it straight and flat iron it to death! She actually took the time to show me the technique of the curl families! I love my hair now and I'm proud to wear it curly and wild!! Thanks Melanie your the best!!

Melanie taught me to embrace my curl. I often straightened it avoiding the natural curl in my hair. After a friend recommended Melanie I made an appointment. She showed me how to embrace my curl and make the most out of it with styling techniques and the Deva Curl product line. I love my curly hair now! I have come to realize that is makes me truly unique. Thanks Melanie for showing me how beautiful curl can look.

Melanie has been cutting my hair for over a year now, and she truly is the best stylist I have ever been to. She has a fun, sassy personality that makes her fun to chat with while getting your hair done. Melanie is knowlegable about her work, and has NEVER given me a bad haircut. In fact, she recently had to fix a bad cut I got while out of Arizona. Ever since I have been coming to Curls Gone Wild, I have a new sence of pride in having curly hair, and I love how my hair is styled. Melanie also does great color and adds pizzaz to my haircolor without changing it completely. I find Melanie to be passionate about what she does, and it shows in her work. She has recently added a new stylist, Priscilla to her staff to help with the growing number of clients coming to her salon. I have not had a cut by Priscilla yet, but if she is learning from Melanie, I am sure she will also be a great stylist. I would highly recommend Curls Gone Wild to a curly girl looking to get a great haircut and find a new love for ehr curls!

Before coming to the salon everyone would dry my hair straight. She was the first stylist that actually dried my hair curly and did a fantastic job. Mel introduced me to the DevaCurl products which is now what I use on a daily basis. LOVE the products. She really works with the type of curl you have is fantastic at what she does. I would highly recommend her, AND the best part is her hair color club is very reasonably priced. I'm so glad I found her. YAY

I trust Melanie 100% with my hair. She does amazing work and really understands the differences between curly, wavy and straighter tresses. In fact, I trust Melanie so much that I allowed her to cut off over 10" of my curls for Locks of Love, knowing that she would do wonders with shorter hair and that I would not end up looking like a french poodle as I'd feared in the past. ;) Melanie's salon in Gilbert is completely fab! It is very cozy and chatty and a fun place to meet other nice curly girls. The decor is very fun also. Check out the sink in the bathroom....very mysterious. Thumbs up to Curls Gone Wild and Melanie Brown!

I love curls gone wild. The atmosphere is relaxing. I love my hair each time I go. Melanie feeds off positive energy and loves what she does. I would not change my hairstylist unless she moved far away. I trust and respect the great job she always does. I always come out of her salon feeling great and refreshed. Love her.

Melanie encouraged me to "encourage my curl". I put her off because I didn't like the look when I let my hair dry naturally...it looked sloppy. Then with a little cutting, a little practice and a little product, I was amazed at how good looking my loose curl really is. Wearing my hair curly has taken years off my look, added hours to my week and really has encouraged me to take better care of myself. Since I started wearing my hair curly just this summer, I started working out and eating less. The curly hair PLUS the 15 pounds I have lost have taken at least 10 years off of my look. I am not kidding...since they were babies, people have asked me if my 11 and 13 year olds are my grandkids. Now people cannot believe that I am almost 48 years old! Thank you Melanie for encouraging me to work with my natural curl instead of fighting it as I had for so many years!

I have been going to Melanie for over a year for my hair cuts and have been consistently satisfied. Not only does she really know what she is doing when it comes to curly hair, but she offered me valid input on hair styling options that worked for me, individually. To be honest, I second guessed going to Melanie thinking she worked solely with women. However I soon found I had no to reason to worry. She worked with me and my tastes perfectly, complimenting my individual style while making great suggestions I felt comfortable with. Not only is her service one of a kind and refreshingly personal, but she's always provided me with a fun, relaxed environment I enjoy revisiting every appointment. Bottom line, if you live in the Gilbert area (or anywhere near it) and have curly hair that can ever be challenging, stop by Curls Gone Wild. Melanie is more than prepared to work with your hair while showing you how to embrace what can at times seem frustrating. Embrace your curl and stop by. I took the chance and have had no regrets.

I have very thin curly hair and the only person that I trust with my hair is Melanie! I always kept my hair really short because I thought that with thin hair that is what I had to have. Melanie cut my hair and colored my hair with so much ease that it grew out without me even noticing. I would not trust my hair with ANYONE else!! Thank you Melanie!! :)

If there were a higher than best, Melanie would certainly deserve it. I first met Melanie while on vacation in San Diego, she was wonderful at that time. We talked about her opening her own salon and GREAT she did it. I live in Tucson and will drive to Glendale to have Melanie work my hair like no one else could. I get asked all the time where I get my hair done and when I tell them CURLS GONE WILD in Gilbert I also give them the web site and tell them she, Melanie is totally worth the drive. I am a stubborn older woman however when Melanie talked to me about my hair, I actually listened to her and I am very happy that I did. Just a couple of changes that she suggested really made a world of difference and I don't mind doing my hair anymore (just used to pull it back) but now after practicing what to do, my hair doesn't take long at all and looks great!!!!!. Thanks Melanie we needed someone like you in our curly world, you are FABULOUS.

I have just started going to Curls Gone Wild and Melanie Brown is my stylist. For someone that has had curly hair, this is such a breath of fresh air! I have never had a hairdresser understand curly hair the way Melanie does and the Deva line of products are incredible. I feel so lucky to have found a hairdresser that understands curly hair and have been referring her to all of my curly haired friends! When I told them that she cuts curly hair dry, they are sold! Thank you Melanie!

After wanting to burn all my photos from a back to back vacation to San Diego and San Fransisco,due to hair issues, I decided I needed to do something with my hair. My daughter however looked great, as all 3 year olds with ringlets do. I ran across Melanie and she is nothing short of amazing for those of us in curl denial. Going from blown out, straighten hair with a dose of frizz to style that looks like a curlying iron was applied was unbelievable. 4 months later, I still go to Melanie and with her coaching I get compliments on my hair regularly. My daughter's first cut was done by her as she is the only one I now trust with 'our' curls. She and her staff are talented, patient, and amazing stylist.

I have spent most of my teen and early twentys spending all my time and money trying to sleek and flatten my hair out. Unfamiliar with the how or what to do with curly hair I stumbled upon a referral to see Melanie Brown at the salon. My very first visit was extremely educational and helpful as for the first time in my life someone showed me what to do with the curly hair I was born with. Melanie is such an excellent stylist and I love what she did. I recieved so many compliments I have sent many of my friends her way as well and each one of them have been more then pleased at the work Melanie has done. I am truely greatful and think it is just about time to go back again. I know and trust for once that someone knows what to do with the hair I have and now have more confidence in my own style. Thanks again Melanie!

Melanie is truly a great stylist. She knows her stuff and helps you achieve the look you want while still making sure it works on you. The first time I went in, she told me I was flat ironing too much and thats why my hair was so unhealthy, which was true! I backed down A LOT after that, and my hair is now shiny and not as damaged. She also showed me how to work with my natural hair's texture. I wasn't crazy about it at first, but after the compliments started pouring in, I learned to love it. Melanie herself is a great gal and very work-oriented while keeping it real. She is very professional and you can tell she loves her job. I would suggest going to her no matter what your hair type is if you want a fabulous haircut that works for you. The salon itself is super cute, and her prices are reasonable. Overall, I love this place and I recommend Melanie to anyone who complains about their unmanageable curls. She makes it work!

I have been seeing Melanie for over 4 years now and she is the best stylist and the only stylist I will ever see! She knows exactly how to cut, color and style my natural thick wavy hair. I have referred her to many of my friends and coworkers. They all love her! As long as she is around, I will not see any other stylist. She is a professional at what she does and it shows through her rapidly growing clientele. If you see Melanie, you will not go back to your old sytilist. She is very experienced and a wonderful person!

I came to Melanie about a year ago and have gone ever since. I love going to Melanie because she always listens to what i want and is great with my curly hair. She has given me several tips on styling and told me about great products that have always been very helpful. The best part about her work is that she is consistent and always cheerful and positive, which is a very important quality for a stylist to have. Melanie has amazing prices, always puts in her professional opinion, which i value, and uses good quality products. I don't see myself going to another hairstylist any time soon!

Melanie is a gifted artist and a teacher - she loves what she does and that comes through every minute of every visit. I was blessed to find her when I was 50 years-old, and I've never before loved my hair like I do now. She takes time with her clients; she shows us how to care for our hair, and how to encourage our curl to work for us so it looks the way we've always dreamed it would look. I've watched her with other new clients too, and I'm not overstating it when I say, it's truly a life-transformation that she works for us!!! Melanie is THE BEST!!!

This salon is AMAZING! Such a nice and relaxing feeling to it. The windows are tinted so no one can see inside which just makes you feel even more relaxed. Melanie was absolutely a stress reliever. We talked about what was going wrong with my curls and what I wanted them to do and how I could best accomplish it. She taught me new techniques and ways to deal with the bad hair day. She also never once pushed any products that she was using. She told me their names and where I could find them but never once tried to get me to buy them. I live in Chandler, but am more than happy to drive to Gilbert for this salon. Try it, you wont be disappointed. It's fun, carefree, and they are there to help you be 100% satisfied with your curls.

Finding this salon and stylist has been a great relief. The salon is beautiful and relaxing. Melanie, my stylist, is great to work with. When I went to her for the first time I was worried about having a new stylist, but she made me feel welcome and comfortable. She really took the time to listen to my hair concerns and to what I wanted done to it. I have been going to her for some time now and enjoy the results of her work each time. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a stylist that is up to date and trendy!
