how long does your haircut take?

I was talking to a woman yesterday who has her hair cut by a Deva trained stylist. She said she spent three hours having her curls cut piece by piece. She doesn't have long hair; she has a chin length bob.
My hairdresser cuts my hair dry. I think she does a great job and it takes maybe a half hour. I have much longer hair than this other woman.
How long does your Deva cut take?

    It's not about hair length but density and hair texture.
    I'm a 2c/3a so a simple texture to cut but with a lot of hair, it takes my chin length hair an hour to style it at the saloon.
    And for my cut, the stylist said I will take 25 min top, and in the middle of the process he said you have way too much hair. Anyhow the whole thing from start to end took about two hours, he even had another costumer waiting :/
    2c, dense and coarse hair.

    i think it depends on how much hair you have, the length, and whether this is your first deva cut or a long time between cuts, or a repeat cut in a shorter time frame (like 3-4 months).
    if you regularly get a deva cut and your don't have a lot of hair, then maybe 35-40 minutes to cut, not counting the wash and style.

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(

    Mine takes about 45 - an hour. She puts me under the hooded air dryer for 20 minutes.

    I have a lot of hair. It's long and thick. I get it trimmed every 3 months or so. My stylist only takes maybe a half hour for the cutting. Maybe she's not as meticulous as some others but I'm satisfied with her and get a lot of compliments on my hair. She has a full clientele of mostly NC, not taking new clients.
