Angela Hicks Curl Haven Salons of Dallas - Dallas, Texas, United States
Angela Hicks

Sep 04, 2011 - I have been a long time visitor of this site but have never posted until now. That alone should tell you something. I am African-American with predominantly 4a textured hair with spots of 3c maybe...I don't get into the hair typing thing. Anyway, I have been desperately looking for someone to cut my hair in its natural, curly state. All of the African-American salons I would visit insisted on blowing my hair dry first. Having suffered heat damage previously (despite the fact that I rarely straighten my hair), I refused to do this again. I got Angela's name from this site and after going back and forth for several months, I finally bit the bullet. I was not disappointed. When I made the appointment I told her that I had very tight, kinky hair and she said "great". When I arrived she took me to her chair immediately and did exactly what I wanted - a trim of the dead ends while retaining the length. She uses the deva cutting method which, to me, makes sense given the amount of shrinkage I suffer when my hair dries. She also gave me some great pointers on my hair including using Aloe Vera gel (which is now my HG) and using the DevaCurl One Condition as a leave-in (slightly rinsing but leaving some on the hair as a leave-in). She is awesome and I will definitely go back to see her. I'm even considering having her re-do my highlights (which are a necessity given my gray hair). Any African-American curlies in the Dallas area should not hesitate to visit Angela. Also, I found her prices to be reasonable.
