Aug 24, 2010 - I am new to the state & researched before finding a salon to cut my 52 year old curly hair. This is the 2nd time I went to this salon. The 1st time I had Gretchen cut my hair back in April '10. I wasn't 100% thrilled with it, it seemed a bit uneven & she cut way too much off the length, but I was able to live with it. Gretchen was very nice & friendly & somewhat explained what the Deva cut was. In June I felt like I needed a trim so I made another appt, spoke with Gretchen & figured I'd discuss what I wasn't happy with as far as the last haircut. Lo & behold I get there for my appt & I'm handed over to one of the newer stylist's, Christy. I discussed with her what my curl issues were, she explained her strategy & started snipping away without any rhyme or reason I could understand. I still couldn't figure out the strategy with the Deva cut. I left there very unhappy with my hair cut. As it is growing out I have chunks missing near the neckline & she cut it super short at the crown where I can't pull my hair into a ponytail w/o having horns pop up. I've straight ironed more in the past 2 months than I have in the past 2 years. I called & left a message for Gretchen who was busy moving the salon, but she called me back in a week & left me a message saying to come in because I may need a few "stray hairs tweaked" (which she had told me after my 1st haircut to do if I found after I washed & styled it). I certainly did not need more hair cut off that's for sure. I do not care for the Deva cut, or perhaps it's this particular stylist that has scarred me. I haven't had a bad curly cut in many, many years & I am now dealing with a mess & waiting for it to grow out. I have had the "other curly cut" in the past & loved it. It's more expensive but you get what you pay for that's for sure! So I will save my money & find a salon in the area that will give me a proper curly haircut!
