Devachan Salon and Departure Lounge
- New York, New York, United States
Oct 10, 2010 - I flew to NY to have my hair cut at this salon after reading the curly girl book and reading all of the reviews on this site. Unfortunately, Maryanne BUTCHERED my hair. I have 3B curls that were down to my shoulders. It had taken 13 months for me to grow them that long. I explained to Maryanne that I wanted to grow my hair out as long as I could but i needed some volume on top. Maryanne started running her fingers through my hair making into a frizzy mess and then proceeded to cut my hair into a circle. When I asked her to stop after two cuts) I told her I wanted to keep my length and was still growing it longer (I thought she didnt hear me the first time). She told me not to worry, that she was giving me lots of layers without losing the length. Well she was WRONG. My hair coiled up so tight on top of my head that I look ridiculous. Im ashamed to go outside with this hair cut. It is so short that I cant even pull it back into a pony tail. The longest layer on the top of my head is 2 and 5/8 inches when it is pulled straight. What was she thinking?!? Obviously Maryanne did not account for the fact the length of my hair was pulling the looser. When she cut it so short, the hair, no longer weighed down, curled right up into a tiny little coil. If this had been a stylist who was NOT trained to specifically cut curly hair I MIGHT have been a little more understanding although I would not have ever allowed that person to cut my hair. BUT this is a DEVACHAN trained stylist who allegedly has cut curly hair for the past 3 years. CURLY GIRLS please be ware. This is not someone who understands how to cut curly hair. Dont make the same mistake I did! I will have to suffer through the humiliation of this hair cut for the next year until it finally grows out. Im sick over this!
