Devachan Salon and Departure Lounge
- New York, New York, United States
Nov 20, 2012 - I've been going to Deva for a decade now, and though I keep trying to find someplace else to cut my hair because it's $$$ and far from where I live, I always come back. I started off with Carlos, who now has his own salon somewhere. He did a great job on my hair -- helped me grow out a horrible razor cut -- but after three years couldn't learn my name. (I noticed this when I went for a trim a week before my wedding, then went back for a bang trim two weeks after -- it was like he'd never seen me before, couldn't remember I'd gotten married. Bleh.) So I asked to be switched to a junior stylist, and they recommended Susan. I've now been going to her for six or seven years and couldn't be happier with her! Susan is lovely -- friendly, low-key, sweet, and really listens when you tell her what you want. If you're interested in changing up your style, she'll do that; but the last time I went, I really just wanted a trim for health because I'm growing my hair longer, and she did a great job on my hair, cut off no more than I asked but made it look beautiful. And she has great styling tips. I recommend her wholeheartedly -- and second the reviewer who said, if the price scares you, go for a junior stylist. They are great hairdressers in the making!
