I am absolutely positive the reviews here were added by her friends, and not clients. Doree is great with color, yes. However, she doesn't listen to what you want; instead, she gives you want she thinks you need ... imagine going to a restaurant and ordering the fish, but the waiter decides to order chicken for you instead. The salon is not friendly - AT ALL - and Doree is always in a rush and very forgetful. There is zero warmth and zero small talk, but she does put effort into upselling you her products - quicky kits, hand lotions, etc.
She herself has curly hair but that doesn't make her a curly specialist. She informed me that she was trained in both Ouidad and Deva, but the cut she gave me definitely disagreed. It took weeks for my hair to regain a good curl.
I'm going to give this place a five start because the place and the staff is amazing but LISTEN TO THE OTHER REVIEWS AND DO NOT GET ANYONE ELSE EXCEPT DOREE. I really needed a haircut so I called this place to get Doree to do my hair but she was booked for months so I decided to get someone else in the salon. I got Lisa and let's just say that I got more complements on my hair before my haircut than afterwords.
Don't get my wrong- she seems like she does know how to do hair and such a very friendly person and answered all of my curly-hair questions, but I was just a little disappointed with how my curls looked like afterwords. Next time I think I'm just going to listen to the reviews on here and go to Doree next time.
On the positive note, like I mentioned earlier, the salon and the staff are amazing. There was a place to put my bag and my coat, they offered me tea and even refilled my tea for me when I was done with first cup! It's a very organized and clean place. I do enjoy the service there.
Amazing with my long curly hair! Doree is the first stylist that actually sat and talked with me before touching my hair! I was very nervous, until I shook her hand, then I was at peace. Doree took the time to really look at me and my hair and find out what I WANTED . I've been an loyal client now for 3 years, and I have gotten great rewards for sending in my sister and 3 of my friends! An awesome find! Thank you Doree

THANK GOD! Thank you Doree! I Have struggled with my hair my whole life! I now have a cut and color I love.. I have been going to Doree for 6 years and bad hair days are a thing of the past. Great color, great cuts, great girl! Thanks Doree for taking care of my locks!
I am so happy to have found Doree! I have gone into the city for the last 10 years, paying the tolls, and the parking and fighting the traffic! I have gone to Devachan, but honestly, the cuts were not always consistent. I have also gone to Ouidad so I know that what Deva says about curly hair never cut wet, or combed is not always the case. I need to comb my hair or I have a head of knots! Doree is THE CURLY HAIR EXPERT IN NJ! She does my cuts and my color, and I am never disappointed! I need my hair cut every 12 to 18 weeks and my hair looks great that whole time. In the summer she does a few high lights and in the warmer months I get a glaze. I LOVE HER! She is not expensive and SO FRIENDLY! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! Call the salon now because she is very in demand! Say hi to her from me! lol
I usually go to NYC to get my hair done either Quidad or DEva, and I admit I was nervous about trying a new stylist with my curls. (I"ve been butchered many times) I called and just booked a consultation with Doree to make sure I was comfortable. I did lots of research and found her name all over the internet with amazing reviews from many happy people, but I never trust what I read. As soon as she walked over to greet me I knew I was going to be happy! We talked for a while, and she asked me all about my hair and what I loved about my hair. ( No one had ever asked me that before) Then we went to her computer and she showed me pictures of different options with my hair type! (another first) I wanted to get my hair cut and colored right then, but unfortunately she was completely booked (and now I understand why) after my awesome happy consult I went to the desk to book my cut and color with Doree.. I did have to wait 2 weeks but SHE WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! she used a few different techniques on my hair and its been 4 weeks now and i really feel like my hair just keeps getting better! Not only a great cut, but you should see the amazing color she gave me... very natural with an awesome pop of tone!!! THANK YOU DOREE! THANK YOU NATURALLY CURLY!!! My advice...Call, book a consult AND A HAIRCUT!!! !
I have to admit I was nervous going to a new hairdresser, I really didnt know what to expect, I ussually go to NYC to either Deva or quidad, but I really wanted to find something closer to my home so I found Doree from this site and IM SO HAPPY I DID!!!
