I just wrote a long great review of Brooke and the whole salon but it got lost somehow. But anyway, she made my hair go from a weird wave to ringlets and it's completely amazing. I will definitely be back.
I decided to try the Curly Girl method again, using the cut I already had (just long layers), after a few days the curl/wave was coming back but it was heavy. I found Great Lengths salon on this site and called. I was so lucky to get Brooke for an appointment. She explained everything in length and patiently answered all of my nervous questions. I was afraid the cut would take all day after reading about the "one curl at a time" thing online but it didn't at all. But honestly, swear to God, it made my weird wavy with underneath really curly hair, spring up and curl ALL over and it started turning into ringlets almost immediately. She went through the entire process from conditioning, prepping, product using and finishing, I've never, ever seen curly hair like that on me. I would never have thought it could happen. I will definitely be back to see Brooke. And everyone at that salon is very friendly and helpful. As a whole the salon definitely gets a 5.
I have a lot of 3B hair, which was past my shoulders. It was nice hair, and got a lot of compliments, but I was bored of it. So I went to Melody, and told her I was thinking of doing something new. I showed her a couple pictures of styles I liked, and she thought they were cool. The haircut that followed really felt like a collaboration. We talked about the style all the way through, and by the time we were done, Melody had given me a haircut WAY better than the pictures I had shown her. I've never been happier with a haircut. The Deva method she used was fascinating. She was positively *sculpting* my hair, and it was awesome. Everybody loves my new hair. It's modern and a little edgy, and I'm just thrilled. Call Great Lengths and make an appointment with Melody. You'll be so happy.

Iloooovvvvvveeeeeddddddd Melody! I was so scared to even come due to a past experience with another "stylist" in a different salon. Melody made me feel so at ease1 From the time I came in she offered me a beverage, fixed it and gave it to me with a smile. I had plenty of questions about my curly hair and she had great advice and could answer all of them. I felt like I knew her. She took the time to wash and detangle my hair!!! Who does that?! She was extremely gentle and precise. Her work is great! I was skeptical of her ability to do my hair. I am natural and my ethnic background is Black and Asian so I was pleasantly surprised and very pleased! I will ALWAYS go to her while I am in Memphis! I would recommend her to anyone that has curly hair! She loves what she does and it show! Oh, and she is certified and experienced to cut curly hair, so next week I will be getting my deva cut! Please guys stop by and ask for Melody, you will NOT regret it!!!!! :-)
If you have curly hair you have to see Brooke! I cannot begin to tell you how messed up my long curly hair was - it had been dyed black(accidentally)by another salon and then they stripped it with bleach! Thought I was going to have to chop it but one session with Brooke and my curls where brought back to life better than before and she corrected my hideous tri-color mess! In all my 42 years with curls and always having to leave salons with wet hair or complete frizz I have been so blessed to have FINALLY found a place that knows how to style curly hair and walks you step by step through the deva curl process. Also Rob was great at using the deva dryer-seriously never liked having my hair done b/c never know what your going to end up with?? Brooke now has a life long customer!!
Fantastic salon, very friendly and cozy. Deva Curl certified, Brooke does a wonderful job.
