So I booked an appt with one of the local devachan trained stylists. I'm getting my cut tomorrow. This is a first for me! I'm excited and anxious at the same time. :? :)

Please send the good haircut vibes my way for tomorrow morning (2/21). :D TIA!

    They are very good - I go to one near me, they cut just as well as the "real" Deva stylists in my opinion!

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    Oh yes, I need to bring the camera. I was going to wait until I got home for pics, but it's supposed to rain. :?

    I'm nervous, I've read mixed reviews, but more good than not. DH thinks I'm nuts spending this much on a haircut, but it has been 20 weeks since my last cut. If I only need to cut less often, it works out anyway. :D

    You're in California and I am too. Can I ask where you're getting your hair cut? I go to Madusalon in San Francisco.

    I was going to take your recommendation for there, but this one was closer. :) I went to Teresa Callen, now at Textures Salon, in Menlo Park. She and the Madusalon stylist(s) are the only ones in the Bay Area that are deva trained.

    My long review of my devacut with Teresa:

    I was there for about 2 1/2 hrs, start to finish. Teresa gave me a quick tour, had me change into a gown and sat me down for a chat. She asked lots of questions about my hair, how I liked it, what I use, etc. I had brought some photos of my old styles and clippings of others, we discussed what I liked and didn't about them. She told me what she wanted to do, reshape the layers to blend better and get the poof out of the sides. Then she started snipping away. :) It was like watching an artist--she'd snip a bit, play with the curls, examine them, snip more. She kept my length and just shaped it up. I think it's a great cut.

    After the cutting, she washed my hair with no poo, used one c, and scrunched lightly with paper towels. My hair was very wet. She had me flip my head forward as she scrunched in angell. She then arranged some curls and clipped the top for height, and sat me under the dryer. The bottom was still wet after quite a while, so she set up the heat lamps to finish.

    When my hair was dry she again had me flip forward and she fluffed and ruffed up my hair from the back. She said this was breaking the gel cast. And I was done! :)

    I will say that I don't know if I like the way she styled it though. But then again, every stylist does the same style on me. :? It's just not a style I usually do. I'll have to rewet and style it myself to see the full effect.

    Should I post the pics anyway? :P I guess so. Let me work on getting them on my fotki.

    PS - although she did talk about the deva line, she didn't push. She thought my current gel was working for me, but she did rave about the low-poo and no-poo. I told her I was using [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Hair-Cleansing-Cream-p-103.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-hair-cleansing-cream]Jessicurl's HCC[/buylink] (until dermatologist nixed everything with oils for now) and she likes Jess's products too. I need a color but wanted her to see the roots to assess the color--she said the color is great for me and working well (RC's Color - she's heard of it).

    PPS - Teresa said I'm a tight boticelli/corkscrew mix. :D

    Thanks ladies! :) I spritzed it with water this morning to refresh the curls and ran my hands over them. It's actually more curly and less wavy/chunky now. And I did a bit of crossing over at the part so it's a little more even on top now. So far I like it, although the top does seem shorter. I just hope it doesn't go wild when I wash it next time. We'll see.

    It seems to be working, try again? It's the one in my sig line, but it's case sensitive.

    Wheet woo, loo-king good! :D

    I have shelving too, but then I asked for it when I asked for layers to give me some volume. Otherwise it just hangs blah-like.

    Darby had a Deva cut, twice I think, in Salt Lake, & I'm seriously considering it. I think I'll get it done sometime this spring.

    Simply beautiful! You are soo making me want to get a Devacut. I loooove that pic of the back of your hair. My hair curls very nicely on the sides but the back takes soo much effort that I am starting to think that a good cut will make this area more curly. :D

    Curlilocks,

    Your hair looks fantastic. It looks longer and has what we are all looking for controlled curl. She did a great job on the cut IMO. Hope you like it as well.

    How did it go when you styled it yourself?

    Y'all are making me :oops: ! Thank you for the kind words.

    So far I really like it. This is day 3 and I just spritzed and scrunched again. We have a hike with DS's scouts tomorrow, so I'll wait until afterwards to wash and style again. I'll let you know how it goes.

    (I haven't put up a recommendation on the Salon listing yet since I haven't had the chance to play with it, etc.)

    It really does look fantastic. I agree with the others who said the cut makes your hair look longer.

    I love Teresa. She cut my hair in NYC in the devasalon when I was a hair model and she happened to be my friend's stylist who lives in SF. It was a funny coincidence. I think I got the best cut from her, better than my regular ones at devachan. She is verynice and real too. Lucky you have her and I like your cut and hair. It is similar to mine.
    Hair type, thin, 3b, past my shoulders always looking for length. Use jessicurl hair cleansing cream, devacurl one c, angel, set it free, Always see a deva trained stylist for cut and Aveda Institute for color.
