Savain Salon & Spa
Stylist: Danielle Soucy
Oh my goodness! I found these reviews for Sa'Vain, which is literally 15 MINUTES from my house, but I never knew about it. So I made an appointment with Danielle after reading about how great she is with curly hair. I didn't even mind having to wait 2 1/2 months (she was on vacation). I LOVE my new haircut! I know that as my hair grows Danielle can make it even more to be exactly what I want, but considering the circumstances, I am thoroughly impressed. This is the best salon haircut I've ever had, and I was so happy to be able to leave with it still curly and beautifully styled. It was a lot cheaper than I thought it would be, too. Personality wise, Danielle is great. I immediately felt at ease and comfortable with her. She is friendly, easy to talk to, listens well, and doesn't force conversation if you want to just sit there and enjoy the process. She also didn't push any hair products on me. She just told me what she was using, what it did, and that's it. I didn't feel pressured to buy anything at all. Danielle doing my hair has been the best experience ever. I highly recommend making her your stylist! I know I am planning on going to her for life! Ha. :)

I have liked a haircut or stylist as much I like Hi'Leen. She showed me how to successfully make my hair less frizzy and it makes me so happy. I love my haircut and would definitley recommend her to anyone!

LOVE HER, LOVE HER, LOVE HER!!! I found her here on this board and it was the best decision I've made. She is worth the drive and the price, IMO. You can search in the CurlTalk forums for my name and see my before and afters and you'll see the proof is in the pictures. My only upset was. The only downside is I have to wait 8 weeks to see her. But after this cut, she's worth it, again IMO.

Since I posted my last comment about Danielle in January of 07, I continued to see her to maintain my short curly style, because honestly...I think I've converted to a ""short-hair curly girl"". I have since relocated to Texas, and before I left, went for one last trim. I was so sad to leave Oviedo since as I mentioned it took me YEARS to find someone I could trust. I gave her a big hug and told her I would not let anyone touch my hair until I could fly back to see her...no matter how ""long"" it takes (double meaning intentional :> ) I have been here in Texas for 5 months and my hair started rebelling, but I wouldn't let it take over and found ways to style it as it grew and grew and grew! I joked about my 'afro' but reminded myself that my hair is natrual and lovely...right ladies??? So long story short...my Mom surprised me and flew me in for a quick visit at which time I had my appointment with Danielle! She was just as amazing as ever, and laughed at the fact that I indeed let NO ONE touch my hair.

I followed the recommendations from the board and made an appointment with Danielle. I wanted to wait a few days so that I could see if I could recreate it myself, and I did! She was patient and listened to me, but made suggestions when my ideas wouldn't work. She has gorgeous curls herself, and now I do too. I drove an hour and half to see her, and I will do it again and again.

“Hi Everyone! I have an important announcement for all of you looking for the best curly hair stylist in Orlando and Oviedo. Danielle has moved to a new salon so if you are looking for her, you can still find her in Oviedo at Savain Salon, and it’s not far from her previous location. I went for my end of the year hair cut and once again Danielle cut my hair exactly how I wanted it. Since I met her in November 2005 when I posted my first comment, I have been going to see her on a regular basis to maintain my cute short style that I LOVE. I had long curly hair down past my waist for over 10 years and making the decision to go short was a big one. Danielle’s expertise and consultation lead to this style which I have been able to maintain for a year now. I spend less than 5 minutes washing it, and about a quarter size squeeze of hair products compared to the gallon I used every month. I also know that when I am ready to grow out my curls, I can count on her advice. So if you are still looking for someone, the search is over. Danielle is the one, so call her up at her new salon and make your appointment, and you will LOVE your hair too :-> “
