Sep 23, 2009 - Rachel is the best stylist I have ever had. If you live in California and are looking for a stylist who understands how to style curly hair, do yourself a favor and go see her. Since I live in New York City and had followed the Devachan system so faithfully I thought the obvious solution was to go to the actual (and world famous) Devachan Salon downtown. For a variety of reasons I got a very bad, generic haircut for a very, very expensive price. I was styled by a staff of people who spent very little time looking at my hair and a lot of time telling me about their proven system for “curly hair”, which was applied in the most generalized fashion possible. However, the tea they served was delicious. When I flew out to visit my sister in Marin she took me to see Rachel who fixed everything. As another reviewer said, Rachel is “personable”. I knew right away that she was committed in making sure I got a great haircut. The girl knows curls and she knows about all the books, products, and systems we are all using or trying. She will take the time to get to know you, find out what system you are currently using, talk to you about what is working and what isn’t, and will give you a haircut that works for your curls. If she ever came to New York City, we would welcome her with open arms. I miss you Rachel.
