Any 4a or 4b ladies ever gotten a ouidad or deva cut?
How did it go?
How did it grow out?
Would you do it again?
Can you recommend a stylist?
Do you have to stick with their products to maintain the look?
Please share any pros & cons. I am considering it for 2012 & I don't trust stylists very much.
I will probably get it done in NYC or LA.

I posted this in 4b but someone suggested I post it in 4a for more responses. I am starting to think I may actually be 4a but I'm not sure. When my hair dries I know it is not shaped well so I need a cut either way. If you have really thick hair and have had it cut successfully using one of these methods please share your experience.

Thanks for your help on this.

Also, Carol's Daughter Products...are they just over priced products with average results? (Did I just hijack my own post? oops.)
