I first went to see Valdeh with my "curly-hair" relative. I didn't expect much since I have straight, fine hair and hadn't had a good haircut in many years. Was I surprised!! I had the BEST haircut of my life! So yes, he's great with curly hair but tell your straight-haired friends too. Valdeh gives a great cut and style! Well worth the travel time and money. find him at www.curlrevolution.com
THANK YOU, VALDEH! WOW, I widh I would have found you 21 years ago. It's important to Valdeh that you have a great experience when you leave. I went for a color corrections and left getting a lot more. I learned new ways to style and take care of my curls. He showed and explained each step along the way. HE IS WORTH THE MONEY! YOU WON"T BE DISAPPOINTED! Janet V (9-15-13)
I needed a color correction and was nervous. What an great experience. I learned so much about my hair from Valdeh. From the very beginning he explained to me what he was doing and showed me too. He was very experienced and knew exactly what he was doing. HE IS WORTH THE MONEY! Love my hair. Janet V 9-15-13
I had my first appointment with Valdeh for a custom curly cut and loved the result! i learned how to manage my crazy curly hair after fighting with it for years. He took his time and explained every step. I went back recently for color and was so pleased. My hair looks amazing and I will definitely be back. The best part is I only have to get a cut ever 4 months! Bonus! www.curlrevolution.com
Valdeh was referred to me from a friend that has curly hair. I have gone to many "curly hair specialists" over the years and never found one that I really liked. Valdeh really knows curly hair. As soon as I walked in he knew exactly what to do. He took his time cutting my hair and listened to what I wanted. I love my custom specialty cut! He even told me what product he used and DID NOT pressure me to buy it. I did not like my hair before going to him, now I LOVE MY HAIR. Valdeh is awesome. I highly recommend him.
Unless you never plan on wearing your hair straight, don't waste your money. The cut after being flat ironed, looked like it had been cut in my sleep. And if you're thinking about color, STAY AWAY. I asked Valdeh for ombre that I could wear curly OR straight. Once I got home and flat ironed my hair, I cried my eyes out, I couldn't believe the disaster that I was staring at. Oh, how I wish I could post a picture. I should have known that I was in for trouble when in the middle of my color, he pulls out his "big book o' color." He also over charges because he calls himself an "artist." Really all you're doing is supporting his wine addiction, which he will explain to you. Plus he makes you wait while he fiddles around on his phone, disappears, and answers calls. What's the point of making an appointment when you have to wait? Please don't waste your money, and don't let this man near your hair.
I am so excited to have found Curl Revolution! Even after using a "curly" method of care and styling on my hair for 10+ years I learned TONS from Valdeh! He did an amazing job on my specialty curly cut and took the time to show and explain different methods of care and styling to me. I will definitely go back to him for all my curly girl needs!
Valdeh took the time to understand exactly what I wanted done to my hair. He gave me advice on how it would look best and I love it. He also showed me how to style my curly hair. After several years of styling my own hair, I deemed it impossible to look good curly and would either straighten or curl it myself. He showed me how to make it look and feel perfect with just styling gel. I have found my new stylist.
I had my first appointment with Valdeh yesterday, and believe me, it will not be my last. He was very welcoming and professional, and I loved the fact that he educated me about my hair, from how to wash it, to styling tricks, to letting me know what he was doing throughout the haircut, and why. It is clear he knows what he is doing, and I left his salon more satisfied than I have ever been with a haircut. He is worth every penny.
Being a woman of color with Naturally Curly Hair...it use to be like fighting a battle to find a stylist who understood how cut and style my hair. I've gone through many bad cuts that left me in tears sometimes. The day that I found Valdeh...I was a bit skeptical due to past experiences with other awful stylist. The moment that he spoke to me...I said to myself..."This guy seems to know what he's talking about." He understands and knows how to style "ALL" hair textures...which is not a skill that all hair stylist have. My cut and coloring experience was AMAZING! I would highly recommend him to anyone!
I admit, I was a little skeptical prior to my visit. I've tried just about everything there is out there. I've watched YouYube videos, bought countless products, and let a few people "experiment" on my hair, only to be disappointed. To be honest, I thought my only option was to settle for my naturally curly hair just doing whatever it wanted to, to continue buying more products than my cabinets can hold, and to maintain my 'hands off policy' when my hair appeared to be behaving because I didn't want anyone to know how awful it felt because of all the gunk I had to put in it. However, Valdeh has changed my life. With very little product, he transformed my hair into a beautiful masterpiece. He customized a cut specifically for my curly hair and styled it so simply that I was in shock...I thought I had problem hair that didn't respond like others. Not only did he perform this miracle in very little time, he also instructed me on how to get the same results at home. For the first time in my life, I had absolutely gorgeous, touchable hair for 5 days without having to apply any type of product - which is a miracle all in itself. If that wasn't enough, I was also able to get beautiful, touchable hair after washing it myself. I learned more about my hair in the hour+ I spent with him than I have collectively over the years. I was so happy with the results that I brought my daughter in to experience a custom curly cut with Valdeh and to learn how to love her hair as well. Although we have very different hair types, he was able to produce a life-changing transformation on her hair as well. She comes home daily and tells me of the compliments that she's constantly getting on her natural curls. No more curlformers for her. We a loving our natural curls since we discovered Valdeh at www.curlrevolution.com!!!!!!
This was my first time to visit Valdeh, and I have to say out of all the stylists that I have been to I am really Happy with the job he's done. My hair is not dry and my curls are not ruined. I have had the worst experiences with other stylists that leave the chemicals in my hair for a long time to where it breaks my hair. I love how Valdeh took the time to look at my hair and informed me of what has been done in the past, I was amazed that he took the time to talk to me and show me what he is going to do and why. What I loved the most is how he has a lot of information on his website and he knows what he is doing and whats best for you hair. I will definitely come back!!!! I had highlights done to my hair and loved how I have volume and my hair is not dried after my visit.
If I could, I would give Valdeh a 10. Valdeh spends time looking at your hair and talking to you about what you are trying to do before he cuts. He explains everything he is going to do to your hair. He takes his time and is very meticulous, taking small pieces at a time, measuring to make sure everything is even. when he put the styling products in my hair, he explained what he was doing and taught me a few new things about getting my hair to fall the way I wanted it to. My hair is bouncy, curly and I feel 10 years younger. Thank you Valdeh, for making me feel beautiful and special.
I saw Valdeh today for my first ever "curly hair" haircut. I spent years getting regular hair cuts and couldn't ever figure out why I was never satisfied. Valdeh told me that curly hair lives by its own set of rules and has its very own geometry that you can't "cookie-cutter." I have always had wavy, frizzy hair that I always tried to battle with a flat iron. Today Valdeh showed me exactly how to manage my hair in a way that fit my lifestyle and crazy schedule. He listened very intently and explained to me how to style it with products that I already have rather than trying to push a bunch of new products on me. I am SUPER satisfied, and will definitely be back! I am so grateful for the haircut I received from him and I definitely recommend going to see him!!
I just had my first appointment with Valdeh and I can honestly say, this is the best haircut of my LIFE! Not only was he extraordinarily detailed in how he styled and cut each curl, but he made a point of talking me through each step of the styling process so that I can actually have a chance of replicating this super, super cute style on my own. THEN he even texted me the step-by-step instructions after I had left so I wouldn't forget! Honestly, I was skeptical of just how different a haircut specializing in curly hair could really be, but I am 100% a believer now. Go see Valdeh and be amazed. Thank me later. It's www.curlrevolution.com What are you waiting for? Go!!
I've always been on the fence about an expensive haircut because I'm just so afraid that I'll pay all this money for a crappy haircut, but finally my boyfriend convinced me to do it, so I began my search for someone in my area experienced with curly hair and who could acutally do a good job with my funky hair. I came across Curl Revolution here on this website and figured I'd give them a try. From the moment I walked in I felt very welcomed and comfortable by Valdeh (the owner). He sat me down and just knew exactly what I wanted. He takes his time with cutting the hair he goes over 2-3 times to make sure it's perfect and has volume in all the right places. I've honestly never been happier with how light my hair feels and how bouncy my curls are he showed me how to style it and what products to use. He even shared his Puerto Rican rice and beans with me (I'm pregnant and I'm always hungry) which were delicious!! I have already set up my next appointment in 3 months and am so excited to have healthier hair :)
