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.
