Hard to believe but for most of us curly-haired women a great haircut is extremely hard to get! I finally think I got a great haircut that was tailored for my hair! Jason has experience with curly hair so he gave me a much needed dry cut! He spent time explaining the deva curl method and I walked out with bounchy healthy-looking curls. I am looking forward to a great color treatment that he suggested! Thanks Jason!
Jason was amazing. Very knowledgeable about curly natural hair and my cut is amazing! He gave me tips on how to's and even sent me an email detailing how to care for my hair since I won;t need another cut for 4 months. I'll def be going back to Jason. I didn't realize how much the cut makes self styling so easy. But if it's a great cut, you don't' need to do much. Jason is awesome. But let's keep that on the low low.....
I can really condense this review down to one word: SUPERLATIVE. That's what my experience was with Jason yesterday, and that's what his service and commitment to his clients is. This was my first dry cut, and not only do I love the concept of a dry cut for curly hair, but I loved that I could really see what he was actually doing as he was cutting; with a wet cut on curly hair you never really know what the end result will be. Jason took plenty of time with me going through each product that he recommended for the type of curl I'm trying to achieve (not "my type of hair" - there's a distinct difference), showing me exactly how to apply the products, and disabusing me of some old notions I'd had about management and styling. (The greatest trick EVER that he showed me has to do with little clips and weight...that's all I'm gonna say.) I can be the easiest client ever, because I understand that I come to a professional for their expertise, skill and artistry; I can also be a real pain in the ass because pretty much no matter what I choose for my hair, I end up thinking it's the wrong thing. Jason has such confidence (and rightly so) in what he does and what he knows that he was able to let me know the limitations of what he could do for me, i.e. he couldn't give me long, thick, wavy, un-curly, beachy hair and he wouldn't pretend that he could. That was the best thing about the experience: the result of all the time he took asking questions about what kind of curl I like, how I dry my hair, what my goal is, and of course the cut and styling and education, gave me hair that looks right, feels right and has the perfect curl. I love it. Like I said, SUPERLATIVE. Thanks Jason! See you next week for color!
I can not rave about Jason enough! He is absolutely incredible! He truly gave me the best haircut/color of my life. I have always been deathly scared to get a hair cut because it is so hard to find someone who you can trust. I am SO thankful I found Jason because he doesn't only know what he is doing, he is the BEST at it! He is impressibly knowledgeable about the curly-hair-world and has a rare passion for it which is evident in his work. It is an art to him and he has a very specific eye to see what is going to look good. The second he asked me about my hair and truly cared about what I was looking for, I felt so relaxed. He spent time with me and explained everything he was doing and also explained the best way to maintain and recreate the style. He is a such a wonderful and kind person as well. I had a blast chatting with him. He honestly is the best and I can't say enough. I will not go to any stylist again. Go to Jason. He will change your life.
Jason was great! I purchased a discounted deal for his haircut online and was not disappointed! I live in San Diego and there's only one stylist that knows the deva-curl cutting method down here but she's really expensive. My family's from the valley so I was happy to find this deal for when I went home! Jason took a lot of care and analysis of the curls when cutting. The longest part of my hair reached mid back, but I had shorter front layers that were shoulder length. Apart from telling Jason that I didn't want to go too short, I let him do his thing as I figured he's the expert. As he was cutting, I was getting nervous that he was taking a lot off and that it might be too short, but it wasn't! He gave me great layers at the back that really helped to remove some weight off the hair and give me a more balanced look. He also gave me some really cute layers at the front to help create that "big sexy hair" look. I'm very low maintenance when it comes to my hair, and these layers have not been difficult to maintain since he cut them. I've gotten tons of complements on my hair since he cut it. Definitely a good haircut!! Also appreciated the email he sent out after the cut with tips and advice on how to re-create the look. Thanks Jason! :)
OMG! Jason is wonderful! I came into the salon with waist length hair that I was totally sick of and wearing in a ponytail or a bun every day. It was lifeless and a pain in the booty to manage. I told Jason to just cut it off so I wouldn't have to mess with it anymore - it's frizzy and dry and shapeless and just ugh. I was so over it. Jason told me he thought he could make it easy to manage and able to be worn either curly or straight - without giving me a buzz cut. And he did it! He cut it, but it's still far past my shoulders, and it is springy and full and shiny and sexy and gorgeous! I couldn't believe it! I kept looking at it in the mirror in wonder. I could not believe this fabulous stuff was attached to my head. I couldn't be more thrilled. Not only did Jason cut and style my hair beautifully - better than it has ever been cut and styled before, no exaggeration - but he showed me how to do it myself. I can't imagine I'll have the same magic touch that he does, but that is the fault of the student, not the teacher. He was so generous and helpful in his explanations. Besides all that, he's a nice person. We talked and laughed the whole time, and I really enjoyed our conversation. He's fun and charming, and he does great hair at the same time. Yay! Jason told me I only need to get my hair cut about 2x a year, but he's so great I'm sure I'll be back in for a style well before 6 months from now, despite the fact that I live 30 miles away. So worth the drive. SO worth it. Check out Jason at Dej Salon soon, before word gets out. He's only been in LA a short while, and when everybody finds out about him, he's going to be so busy you'll never get in to see him. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT NOW! He's too terrific for words. ~ Denise
