Devachan/NYC Stylist recs

Hi -

I went to Devachan 2 1/2 years ago and had Lorraine give me my fist Devacut (I figured if I am jumping in I might as well do it all the way). It was amazing but it cost so much that it is obscene even if I get my haircut next to never.

I am looking for a recommendation for a great stylist that is either at Devachan or in Manhattan that is Deva-trained. I am kind of desperate for a cut right now so if there is someone who can see me before the 19th that is great. I don't want to pay more than $300 with tip.

Any recs would be appreciated!

    My friend just got her hair cut at the Devachan salon two days ago, and only paid $110. I forget who she saw, but I can get the name later.

    I was wondering about this too. I was thinking of trying the salon but they don't post any prices on their website. Does anyone know what the price range is? Thanks.

    Junior stylist prices start at $85 and they go up from there. Jackie and Ana start around $125, if I'm remembering correctly. Lorraine, I think, is somewhere around $250.

    I saw Julie...I don't remember how much I paid...maybe it was around $125 or so before tip? Definitely way under $300.

    Julie was great!

    Does anyone have any other recommendations to another salon? And are cuts for curly hair normally in this price range? I've never had my hair cut by someone who specializes with curly hair so I do not know what to expect in terms of price.

    TIA!!

    I go to Casey at the Beehive Salon in Williamsburg. It's only one or two stops out of Manhattan on the L. She does a Deva-cut, and charges $75.

    I also see Julie, and I second this. I know she pays $125 before tip.

    She really is wonderful... Leaves me with a happy head :D

    Hi, I was just wondering how you would know it's a devacut? Did the stylist once work for the salon, or are you just saying that it's just as good? Thanks!

    Curly1234 - There are plenty of curlyhairstyist that don’t work for Devechan but are trained in the same technique. You can call a salon and ask if they have a CURLYhairstyist on staff.

    Yep, she was trained in the Deva cut method. Devachan has a list of Deva-trained stylists on their website, that's how I found Casey (they used to have this list, anyway, I haven't looked at their site in a long time).

    I actually go to someone different now. I moved and The Beehive isn't convenient for me anymore. My last cut was with Leilah at Medusa Salon in Park Slope. It's not a Deva cut but I'm really happy with it. They use Deva products so I don't have to worry about what they're putting in my hair. It was $68.
