Heidi's Salon - Farmington, Connecticut, United States

Apr 10, 2008 - FIVE STARS! This girl knows her curls! She's all that and a bag o' chips - seriously, we connected immediately. We speak the same curl language. I came in with my hair straightened but left with incredible curls b/c of the amazing cut she gave me. I have had 2 other Deva trained stylists cut my hair but it never looked this good before - she understood exactly what I wanted. I showed her several pics of the shape I was desiring and she agreed that the style fit my face shape and curl type before we started cutting (b/c not all curls can have the same style and cut - loose vs tight, ethnic curls). We washed and diffuse dried my hair first with no product in it so she could see how the curls dry naturally. We took some length off the top and added some cute little short curlies that fall across my forehead, but left the length in the back since I am planning to grow it long. She was able to snip into the shape, cutting each curl separately and bluntly just as it fell naturally. Then she sprayed it down w/a water bottle and ran some product through it and diffused it again. We were running short on time or we would've rewet my whole head to get the best curl formation - but I have to say, the end result was still impressive. I am hooked! I like my hair big with a lot of volume and well-defined, smooth curls - now I've got it! Not to mention, Jonatha has a wonderful personality, is smart and funny. I am going to recommend her to all my curly friends. She only works 25 hrs a week so make your appointment a couple weeks ahead of time. There aren't many stylists North of New Haven that have been trained to cut curly hair dry - now I've got one in my own backyard. This is by far, the best cut I've ever had! No more straight hair for me. : )
