Imago A Salon For Hair - Richmond, Virginia, United States

Mar 06, 2011 - I went to Imago yesterday for my first ever curly haircut - I was nervous, but excited, too. I had done a lot of research to find a salon that did dry cuts and had stylists trained in the Deva cutting method. Though Imago is 2 hours from my house, it seemed like the best choice, so I booked an appointment. The moment I walked in the door, I knew I had found a gem! Jessica was running a little late, as the girl who had her appointment before me had been late (she had also traveled from a distance to get there), but I was so enthralled watching the stylists do their magic on the other curlies there that I didn't care. When it was my turn, Jessica sat me down and asked me about my hair - what I do with it now, what I use, and whether I was familiar with the CG method. I told her my current routine and what I was looking for in a haircut and she started on my cut. As she was cutting my hair dry, I could tell that it was going to look terrific when styled - and I was right! After my cut, Jessica cleansed and applied product, talking me through each step. She used Deva products on me, which I didn't really love, but she didn't push me to buy them, which I really appreciated. After I sat under the heat lamp for a bit, she taught me how to finish my style, and then did a bit of extra trimming. My appointment took about 2 hours, and with the round trip to Richmond and back, I spent 6 hours on my hair yesterday - and it was worth every second. I absolutely LOVE my cut - it seemed to take no time at all, but my hair moves and lays so much better! I'm so happy I took the risk and tried Imago - I've already booked my next appointment for June!
