Devachan Appointment

DouglaDougla Posts: 21Registered Users
So I made an appointment. I am booked to see Melissa. Has anyone had their hair cut by her? Also are all the sytlists there versed in the ways of curly hair? I of course forgot to ask this and they're closed today. Any help or advice would be great...thanks!

    I don't know the answers to your questions, but when's your appointment? Exciting! What will you get done?

    Hi Urbancurl,

    I'm hoping to get a haircut that will not make my hair look too "shelfie". I called the salon today and Melissa will be cutting my hair and she's well versed at cutting curly hair. So I'm not a panicked as before. I'll of course have a full review! I'm going on October 1st!!

    Dougla, you should post the question about Melissa on the main board, where you're much more likely to get spotted by someone who's been to her.

    I've heard that Melissa is good. She uses alot of Francis's techniques.

    Your hair is beautiful already and i LOVE the color. I've been reading a lot about Devachan -- is it a cut or a location and where is it located?
    3b or 3c (not exactly sure)

    Thanks! Devachan is the salon co-owned by Lorraine Massey the lady that wrote "Curly Girl". It's in New York and apparently all stylists there are versed in curly hair! So we'll see..I'm sooo psyched!
    Here's the link to their site:

    So I made it to Devachan and had a fantastic time! In all the flurry of activity I forgot to take pictures, but let me tell you guys my hair looked fantastic when Melissa was done with me!! My curls were defined and the products smell divine. I highly recommend going and since I cut my hair once a year it is totally worth it. I'll take some pics later on this week and add to my site.
