Moving - Need a stylist in Central Florida!

I'm going to miss quite a few things about Alabama, but most of all - I'm going to miss my stylist. Yeah, I'll miss my mom too. 8-) My current stylist, Barbara, has been cutting my hair since I was twelve years old!!! I'm thirty now. You can only imagine the anxiety I'm feeling! I found the curly stylist finder on DevaCurl, but I'm hoping to find someone who actually lives in the Central Florida area, and can recommend a stylist to me. I'll be working in downtown Orlando, but living in Polk County. (Ugh! Commute!!!)

I'm getting a hair cut a few weeks before my wedding - that's when I'll be moving to Florida. If I can't find a suitable stylist that I'm comfortable with I'm afraid I'll fly back to Birmingham just to get my hair cut!!!! OMG am I crazy???

    Thank you both! Those are great options. The drive would only be about 1.5 hrs.

    I live in Orlando and drive to St. Pete to Cynthia Cheslock. She has been doing my hair for 6 years. She is at SalonLofts and was just featured in an article in the Tampa Tribune if you want to google her you can find it. She does a really nice job and is worth the drive. I also know Danielle is in Oviedo, you can find her in the salon section. I have never been to her just heard good things about her.

    Hi,

    I just had my hair cut deva method, in Winter Park at a salon call Primp. Angela is deva certified. I found her off this site from salon finders. She is highly rated. It was my first deva cut, and as I am a new recruit, she was very informative. Winter Park would be a quick commute from downtown.

    I just had my first DEVA cut from Angela, she is AWESOME!!! I was very nervous because I am wavy as opposed to curly hair, but she knows what she is doing and is very nice and easy to talk to! I am going to post a review on her in the salon review section very soon, just have not gotten around to it. I was going to go to the Curl Girl in Tampa, I am sure she is fantastic, but the drive is a bit too long for me.
