chavahsdaughter's Latest Salon Reviews

Juel Salon - Franklin, Tennessee, United States
Stylist:
Teresa Gary

May 21, 2015 -

I recently moved back to the Nashville area and experienced the dread that comes with finding a new stylist. I have been using the Curly Girl method since 2008 and have had my share of terrible salon experiences. It was important for me to find someone who possessed a unique combination of skill and confidence in working with naturally curly hair. I found Teresa on the Devacurl website and booked an appointment with her as soon as my hair could no longer be ignored. The wait time for an appointment was about 10 days from when I first made contact with the salon. My last salon appointment was almost a year ago when I went dramatically shorter at the end of a year spent growing out my hair color. I am in my mid-thirties and decided (about 2 years ago now) to let my natural, prematurely gray color grow in.

The salon is beautiful and clean, and the staff was very welcoming. Teresa was warm and patient as I gave her a quick overview of my hair care routine. It was amazing to watch her literally sculpt my growing-out curls into a beautiful, voluminous style. Teresa was very supportive of my embracing my natural color and didn't pressure me at all to color it again. She even gave me some really valuable hair care tips that I’d not heard before in my many years of Curly Girl adherence. I am thrilled to wear the cut she gave me as I continue to move through the growing out process to the long style I wore before making the big chop last year.

I will absolutely be returning to Teresa’s chair. I plan to bring my curly little ones to her as well as referring all my curly friends to her. 

Off Mane Street Salon - Hendersonville, Tennessee, United States
Stylist:
Debbie Owensby

Oct 25, 2008 - I went to Debbie based on the review here, and I'm thrilled to say that I'm over the moon with her service, her personality, and my hair. She'd never heard of the Curly Girl routine before, but she was so incredibly supportive when I told her that I do not use shampoo on my hair. She corrected my color effortlessly (salon fear had pushed me into a self-coloring nightmare), and she added the most beautiful highlights to really showcase my curls. She also gave me the best haircut I've had in years, respecting that I'm still growing out my hair while taking care of the ends that were giving me a fuzzy look. I will absolutely be returning to her, and I highly recommend her to other curly ladies looking for a salon home. On a side note, I also wanted to mention that the atmosphere of the salon is very relaxed and comfortable. I've been to other salons in which I felt underdressed, out of style, and not in the clique. That was not the case here. Debbie and the other stylists were professional but approachable, warm, and welcoming. It was a very, very pleasant experience.
