getting hair trimmed

DarbyDarby Registered Users Posts: 1,025 Curl Neophyte
I've been getting a "deva trim" but not sure she's doing it correctly. I'm not happy with how my hair has been looking. I'm in need of a trim now but it's so un-even. I know the deva cut will look un-even when straight but the sides are long with no volume, same with the back. It's like she "layered" the top part of my head to the middle and then left the rest long. NO BLENDING at all. I hate it.
So, I'm going to a regular stylist and getting a trim the old fashioned way. I hope I don't regret it. I talked with her and told her the type of cut I have been or should have been getting and she's interested in it so she was going to google it and check it out. But she told me to not worry, she'll take care of me and look at my hair and get a good blending.
Does anyone else get their hair cut by a "regular" person and have it done wet?

Natural hair color - dark brunette
Fine, thinish hair/3a, 3b

    We don't have Deva stylists here so regular people are the only option! My hairdresser sprays my hair wet with a bottle then cuts it in what I would say is a normal way. I like the end result, the shape is what I always wanted but could never really describe.

    No deva stylist where I live in central US. My stylist is really good and cuts my hair wet the same way she would cut it when I kept it straightened. I've had a few subtle layers added when before, i would have never wanted layers. I'm too low density for layers. But curls needed some layering somewhat. So. I have been happy with my cuts with her.
