Nov 27, 2012 - After many months of searching for a stylist to do a dry cut on my long curls, and after totally abandoning any product or technique that wasn't DevaCurl, I finally booked my appointment. Mind you, this appointment wasn't just a quick phone call to schedule and a subway ride to get to. I live in Kentucky and this was a *trip* - all for a good haircut - a cut that was meant for my hair type. So, my anticipation was great. When I arrived, the salon was completely packed. Apparently the other location was having plumbing problems and the stylists crammed 2 salons into one, on a Saturday morning. But everyone was organized and professional, and very accommodating. I was scheduled with Helik, and since I had no experience with any of the stylists, it was a complete gamble. Well, the gamble paid off. Helik demonstrated his expertise immediately, interviewing me to understand what I was needing. He had a complete understanding of the products and what impressed me most was his thorough respect for my curls. No brushing. No unnecessary fluffing. He gave me my first dry cut and I'll never have my hair cut any other way! Ever! We conversed about the lack of understanding of curly hair and the difficulty someone with curls has in finding the right products or stylists. I highly recommend Helik. I appreciate his time and efforts. It was worth the expense of the trip to NYC. I hope to make regular trips - or find someone in Kentucky - to continue caring for my hair the RIGHT way! Thank you Helik and Devachan Salon!
