Go see Josh at Dezi Salon. This was my first time to get my hair cut by Josh and here are the good points: 1. Everyone was nice at the salon 2. Josh listened to EVERYTHING I was concerned about 3. He was very conservative and cut my hair dry so I could say “stop” or “go” along the way 4. Josh is very congenial and pleasant 5. I’ll go back….
I love Josh! I moved to portland and had to find a new stylist. I had only one curly cut before, but I was styling it how i like with a curly hair product line and diffuser and such, so i was happy with my curls, but i really needed some style. Josh is so nice, actually everyone who works at Dezi is. I could not wait to get a haircut, because isnt it just awkward when you like the cut but not the stylist. That's two hours of lame conversation while you try to remember if its worth it. Now for the finer points: Josh listens. He takes his time and makes sure I am happy with my new look. And the salon is so cute. The staff is really nice, so its a high quality experience without the attitude. And you know how curly hair kinda has one look? Long or short? And of course, you have layers, but really there's only so much you can do with with curly hair and i have found it difficult to get a sassy edgy haircut UNTIL Josh! I highly recommend Josh. I have had a few other curly hair stylists and Josh blew them out of the water!
I love my new hair style/cut!! I haven't had my hair professionally cut in years because I had too many run-ins with stylists that claimed they were good at cutting curly hair but left me with some form of Bozo cut or another. I have 3b curls and my hair length was middle of my back when I went to see Josh. I went in with no picture in mind I just wanted my hair to be shorter and easier to manage. Josh took his time and was very friendly. I felt like I'd known him for years even though we'd never met before. He cut my hair dry and gave me this cute, shoulder length cut that has movement, body and frames my face so well! Josh explained it best when he said cutting curly hair is like cutting a bonsai tree. You have to cut it dry and let it 'talk to you'. I will definitely be seeing Josh in the future and would recommend him to any curly girl.
Well, nothing disastrous happened with Josh. He's very nice, and a really great listener. Honestly, I think I hindered his natural ability because I told him I was scared to have someone new cut it. He stopped frequently to show me what he'd done but the light was so dim I couldn't really see, I figured he could see better since he's quite young. Anyway, the end result was not bad, but not great. I've been touching it up myself in the last few days. It was a lot of money for a so-so cut that I've touched up myself. Should I give him another chance? There are a lot of great reviews here.
Josh is the kind of stylist I would travel to see from another state. He consistently gave me best cuts I ever had, and I didn't even have to explain much what I wanted. He truly has a curl vision and knows how to listen. On top of it he is one of the most genuinely nice people I ever met, as well as everyone who works there. The place is unpretentious and laid back. I'll be going to Josh for as long as he is working. My days of looking for someone better are over.
I am so happy with my hair! Josh is a wonderful stylist and I look forward to my next appointment. What a jewel he is!! I recommend him to all with naturally curly hair- I'm actually in love my hair now (after many years of hating it)
I was so happy when I found this little jewel in the Pearl! I previously paid a visit to Dirty Little Secret a year and a half ago and dreaded the experience so (which explains the long wait to have my hair cut again). At Dezi, the atmosphere is very friendly, inviting and hip! Nicole was very attentive to my concerns and put me at ease. She gave me a great haircut, plus products tips and styling options for my 3b/3c curls. The Dezi crew are awesome... let's just say, that I noticed Josh and Nicole discussing my hair when I was under the dryer. It's great to have your stylist having a discussion with another about your mop! The only downside is the parking, but what would you except, it is the Pearl District! If you have curly hair and you live in the Portland metro area, you can't go with this salon! Thank you, Nicole!
I listened to the reviews on this site and saw Josh. He was great. He put me at ease and for the first I feel like I have found a stylist who I will be loyal to. We discussed my hair and what I was looking for and he made it happen. I will be going back in a couple of months to repeat the experience. I would recommend anyone try out Dezi Salon-crappy parking situation but the salon is cozy, the people were great and there are great little shops around it.
After trying numerous salons that claim to have "curl cutting experts," I have finally found the right one! Thank you so much, Josh, for taking such good care of me and my crazy curls. Josh truly understands curls and I will definitely be back! Great salon atmosphere, great staff, plus the location is great (lots of fun shops!!) Thank you again....Marie.
Josh is great!! I have 2c/3a curls. I left with a great cut. I have tried several salons in Portland area and like Dezi Salon the best. The atmosphere is relaxed; the staff is nice and the haircut is best I have had in Portland yet. Josh is a great guy and a great stylist.
I recently moved to Portland from LA. So it was time to find a new stylist. After several attempts at several salons, I have finally found the stylist I was looking for - and my hair!! Josh at Dezi Salon knows what he is doing. My hair is kinky curly, frizzy, out of control, and frankly has a mind of its own. Josh spent about an hour and half with me. His free consultation made me feel comfortable, relaxed, and excited to get my hair under control. I left with perfect ringlets, a style I can reproduce myself, and the self satisfaction of finding my new stylist. Girls- if you have curls, go see Josh! Thanks again!
