Luvena Leslie Salon - New Haven, Connecticut, United States

May 03, 2012 - Love, love, love my new hair cut! Luvena gave me the cut I've been asking for since I first discovered the Deva cutting technique. Bigger is better for me. Love lots of volume on top with springy, little curls that fall across my forehead. Luvena totally got what I was saying. My 3b curls responded just right to the cut - lots of volume but lots of definition too. Three weeks later I can say I'm loving this cut more and more. A sign of a good cut is that you don't need a ton of product and you don't have to touch it a lot to get it to look the way you want. I also had the opportunity to try Curling Custard and Knot Today conditioner by Kinky-Curly, a curly hair product line that doesn't contain any toxins, super important for me as I just spent a ton removing all the bad stuff from my body. It has just the right amount of hold for my curl type w/o getting crunchy or flakey. Looking forward to my next cut... though it might be a few months b/c the cut is so good!

Oct 20, 2010 - Second time coming here for a cut. I brought the same pic with me to remind her of the shape I'm wanting to grown into. I think she must've gotten into the zone a bit during our intensive conversation on another subject b/c she took a little more off than I wanted. Plus, it springs up a lot right after it has been cut and she dried the curls so they were super tight right to my head. Looked a bit too perfect rather than wild and edgy like I prefer it. Will give her the benefit of the doubt that she was probably distracted by too much talking. The shape is really good though so I won't have to get another for a few more months. Definitely worth the trip from anywhere in CT or MA. Super cute, modern salon and the prices are very reasonable $55 compared to other Deva salons (up to $125 or more). They also offer manies, pedies and waxing. Located at 29 Babbs Road, West Suffield 860.386.6116. Ask for Aimee.

Jul 27, 2010 - Love, love, love this salon! Having a salon with a DevaCurl trained stylist near me has been a long time coming. I was getting tired of driving 45min - 1.5hrs just to get my hair cut the way that I like it. Even better, the owner of this salon is the one who is trained to do this cut and she did and excellent job. I brought a pic with me to show her the look I wanted. We both agreed that the girl in the pic had tighter curls than mine so the cut would look a little different on me. Even so, she was able to give me some short, springy little curls that fall over my forehead and lots of shorter pieces on top while leaving the overall length so I can continue to grown it out. She was super friendly and made me feel relaxed during the cut though I usually am not. I had brought my fav styling product and she had no problem with me using it instead of her DevaCurl products. I was enjoying myself so much that I decided to stay for a pedi in the spa. After all, it was my birthday and a girl deserves a treat once in a while, right? Good news is, Aimee says that another stylist at her salon is also going to get certified soon as well so they should have someone available for appointments more often. Aimee is also planning to take the Deva class to learn the pintura highlighting technique! Looking forward to my next visit though it might be another 6 months b/c the cut was so good ; )
