I am VERY picky when it comes to my hair. Boticelli curls and a lot of bad haircuts later, I was looking for someone who knows how to cut curly hair. Looking on Yelp, I kept seeing great reviews for Shapes Studio, not for the studio itself, but for Megan the stylist. But when I tried to book with Megan at Shapes, she was no longer working there! Luckily, I got in touch with someone who had reviewed her, and asked if she knew where Megan now works. Well, long story short, she has opened her own salon with some of the other stylists from Shapes, and that studio is Station Hair Studio.
I booked with Megan (which was super easy, by the way - I got in the afternoon of the SAME DAY I called!). Everyone was friendly, the salon was clean and not warehouse-y, but best of all was the cut!
Megan walked me through the Deva process, asked me what I wanted from my cut, and then managed to fix all of my heavy layers without actually losing the longest length of my hair. She then styled it while I held a mirror, so I could watch the Deva shampoo process, "noodling" with the Deva One Condition, and then the scrunching with the gel.
The only thing I didn't totally love is that my lowest layer of curls is a little less curly than the rest, so with that layer being kept long, it kinda looks strange. However, my priority is growing my hair out for my wedding, so I am glad it wasn't cut shorter, and I am hoping to blend those longer layers with some highlights, anyway.
Overall, a great experience. The price was right (normally $70 for a cut, which I find perfectly reasonable, and especially for how great the cut is). I have been able to try styling my hair with a bunch of different products (I had been chained to Catwalk Curls Rock for the past 10 years, and now this cut finally makes my curls behave with a bunch of different products!), and it is so much fun to actually like my hair. WHAT?!
I will SO be going back!
