I moved to the south a bit over a year ago from the NYC area. The climate here is tropical and my hair just didn't know how to deal with it! I tried several salons and found the stylists really didn't have any idea on how to cut curly hair. I went to Devachan in NYC for many years so I know what it takes to cut a curly head! Kelly comes so close to the cuts I'm so used to getting! She is Deva trained, has curly hair, is from the area and knows her stuff. She spends time explaining the process and wants to make sure the cut is perfect. I am so glad I finally found someone who knows how to handle curly hair. The next day it even looked better and I got 2 compliments on it!!!!! Finally my search is over!
I LOVE this salon I didnt know what to do with my very curly hair until Patti and Kelly Nicole was referred to me by a fellow curly girl. They are knowledgeable in everything hair and I trust them. Great atmosphere!
I never had a Deva cut before. I used to straighten my hair daily and have not used a straightener since I started seeing Kelly. She did an AMAZING job. I have never been happier with my curly hair.
Finally found the salon and stylist for my curly locks! Moved to Florida 10 months and have been searching ever since. A co worker with gorgeous curls sent me to the right place! I had the "Florida Frizz" and Kelly gave me a Deva Cut and spent so much time with me showing me how to care for my hair. She actually followed up with me to see how I was doing with my new products and styling regime! They are so nice there and really care about you and your experience. I would highly recommend Kelly Nicole as a curly girl expert and her team of professionals. So glad I finally found a home for my curls!
The salon itself is rather dumpy which did not give me a good feeling as I entered. That would not be a deal breaker in itself but my overall experience is what will keep me from going back. I was a little disappointed when she didn't inquire about my hair, like trouble areas etc. She was doing 3 Deva Cuts that afternoon and I think they were back to back since the other two she was working on had curly hair. I was going to go for a "haircut" but after seeing the place and the hair of the lady she was working on I changed my mind and went with just a trim. I got the feeling I was the last appointment of the day and she really wanted to get out of there. What upset me the most was that after she did the cut and her technique did not resemble any Deva cut I had see on line, she actually combed the back of my hair to cut it she then turned me over to a shampoo girl to was my hair. I was very upset with how rough she was with scrubbing the scalp and she kept running her fingers though my hair and pulling it straight. Not the way I wash my hair. She also shared with me that the first time she used No Poo no one told her it would not lather and she kept putting more on...really? No one told her about the products for curly hair? Now if you have never had a deva cut before or never had someone cut it that truly knew how to cut curly hair you may be happy but this curly girl will not be returning to Avenue Hair Design.
