Apr 15, 2010 - I saw Maria today at Pure, and she made me cry... with happiness! This is the first haircut in, oh, 20 years that actually came out looking nice and will continue looking nice when I do it myself. I got the Deva cut. It was technically the second one I had paid for, but the first real one I got. The first place I went to claimed to have a Deva stylist, but he didn't do it correctly. He cut it wet, and then toseled my hair with his fingers while he dried it, undoing what the DevaCurl product is designed to do. Maria laughed with me as I told her the disastrous story, and proceeded to work miracles with my mess of a head of hair. I had her take off almost 8 inches in some places, thus freeing me from my long held fear of shorter hair. So thank you, Maria, for helping me see just how awesome my hair can be. I got shrieks of delight and hordes of compliments from my coworkers (even the guys! gasp!) when I returned to work! I feel like I can conquer the world!
