Dry cut worth the cost for wavy hair?

Hey everyone,

Has anyone here with wavy hair gotten a dry cut and was it worth it?  The prices at Devacurl and Ouidad are steep to say the least. 

I've had some great haircuts in the past that were done wet but I've also had some bad haircuts. 

My current stylist is pretty good - she listens to what I want and she also has wavy hair.  I came to her to salvage a bad, overly layered, haircut (and she def helped it look much better).  She cuts my hair dry but lightly blow drys it with a round brush first.   I'm kind of used to just not liking my haircuts that much and usually like it when it's grown out a little more but not when it grows out so much so that it's flat at the crown (like the pic below).  I wasn't sure if a lot of that had to do with with the fact that I never really knew how to style my hair but I'm continuing to experiment with my routine.  I'm wondering if I should stick to my current salon or try out a salon that will cut my hair dry and wavy.  

Here's my hair:

    I think if you're happy with the cuts you're getting now, there's no point in going somewhere else.  I do get deva cuts, but that was because I was really unhappy with regular wet cuts, and I had tried all kinds of different salons and stylists.  And I'm still somewhat unhappy with the deva cuts, but at least it looks better after a couple weeks.  The wet cuts just looked bad all the time.

    I have 2c/3a hair and got my first real dry cut 5 or 6 weeks ago. It is the best cut I have ever had. It was not a a Deval salon. I researched local stylists and found someone who does dry cuts for wavy/curly hair and has curly hair herself. I DID NOT AND NEVER HAVE walked out of a salon liking the style. I always immediately go home and restyle my hair which I have come to accept.

    Ah I see. I mean for me, it's been a mixed bag.  I wonder if it's a thing where you have to "settle" into a cut, if that makes sense.  There's only been maybe 2 or 3 times in my life that I left a salon loving my hair.  I find that I usually need a couple of weeks to go by and I need to style it myself because even though the hairdresser is the professional, I find the way they style it looks nice on it's own (like when viewed from behind) but doesn't work with my face and style/preferences.
