Jan 28, 2012 - I don't understand what the great reviews are about, but this is the WORST haircut I have EVER had! I would have rather gone to a supercuts and had a person trained in straight hair, cut my hair.
Susan did cut my hair dry, but separated out each curl to teeny little strands, making my hair look as if it had been brushed out and super poofy! Then she sprayed my hair with a "new" product that didn't do anything to change the huge poof she had created, and told me she was done. It was a "beachy" look. (Riiiight. I lived at the beach before, it never looked like this).
When I asked if she was going to wash it or at least wet it down, to make sure the curls curled up right, and to check for any odd curls, she said that was an extra charge. (WHAT?!! Isn't it standard to make sure that the cut looks right after it's been wet? Especially when you've just turned the nicely clumped curls into a frizzy poodle puff?!)
Once she did wet it down, she smothered it with a huge glop of gel that made me look like a drowned rat, and left me to dry, while she got going on another customer. She didn't check any curls, as there nearly wasn't any (I'm normally a 3b/c)... and as soon as I walked out the door... my hair went straight into a bun.
After a wash and style at home, it was discovered that she cut all of my curls at the weirdest places, making the ends of the curls lay out stringy and rather straight... as if they were in dire need of a cut!
I ended up going to a bookstore, reading the Curly Girl book, learned how to cut my own curls, and went home to re-cut my hair myself (I couldn't afford to have someone else fix it. It was so horrible!
Now, even though it's not perfect, I at least have ringlets, and curls everywhere instead of nasty strings... I will never EVER go back to her! I love my curls too much to ever let anyone mistreat them like that again.
She definitely needs to be re-trained in the DevaCurl method.
