Jul 27, 2010 - Sophie does a wonderful job cutting my hair--it looks beautiful every time! She has really helped me figure out how to make my hair look good and is genuinely complementary of my hair. I look forward to haircuts with Sophie--she listens to what I want, remembers everything I tell her, and is really nice. I also like conversing with her. She is on the shy side and not pushy at all, which is what I like in a hairdresser. The first time I went in my 2C curls were in desparate need of help--my hair is actually not dry and is really thick, so I was having trouble getting my hair to look clean. She gave me great advice without making me feel bad, which solved the oily looking hair problem, and has since given me other great advice to keep my hair detangled. She also told me that I only needed to get my haircut every three months, which has really helped it grow longer (and saved me money). She was not at all bothered by the fact that I didn't want to get my hair washed (I am allergic to stuff in the Deva hair products) or try any of the products. Be prepared for the fact that she may have to take a few minutes to return to a customer that did have her hair washed while she's cutting your hair. I suspect that is just the way the salon works. The haircut is the most I've paid ($114.95 before tip), but it is worth it to me to go somewhere that they know what to do with my hair and appreciate it. Devachan has a rewards system now, which should help. I highly recommend Sophie, especially if you like stylists who are nice and listen well.
