Jan 26, 2009 - I had the best experience with Karen and at the styling Hutch. First off, I have been using the Deva products for the past 4 years and have only had my hair-cut in NYC at the Deva salon. I had let my hair grow to it's limit (it had been over a year since my last haircut) and I was not going to fly to NYC for a haircut. I went to this website and read the reviews about the Styling hutch and thought, "well it's only 10 minutes away from my house..I might as well give it a try" and boy am I glad I did. I knew going into the cut that the salon was an Ouidad certified salon, and that their "carving and slicing" Method was different than the Deva method, but I was open minded and ready for a change, if I was happy with the results. I must say that KAREN IS AMAZING! I cut off 7 1/2 inches (my hair was super long) and I LOVE IT TO DEATH, it's by far the best haircut I've ever had, and I owe it all to Karen. My hair was long, thick, and ringlet type of curls, but Karen knew immediate how to give me the length- a little bit above my shoulders, I wanted (I brought in pictures) and without the huge pyramid/puffiness/bigness. I trusted her immediately and she taught me the Ouidad approach and how to style and use their products. My hair is fabulous, and I have already gotten so many compliments on it and my great new look. If you need a good curly hair hair cut, go to the Styling Hutch and ask for Karen. I guarantee you won't regret it, it's just as good if not better than NYC and right here in Plano!
