What is a good haircut?

I read somewhere that a good cut for curly hair should be able to be worn many ways (straight, curly, wavy) and should have movement. It was recommended that some layers on top should be cut shorter to create movement. In addition, it should be easy to maintain. This doesn't sound like my Deva Cut and I am wondering if there are too many limitations with the Deva Cut. Then again with all this rain and humidity lately I think there would be many bad hair days with the "good cut" that was described. What do you all think?

    I'm interested in seeing the responses as I'm wondering if a Deva cut is worth the money.

    No, short layers on top would must make my hair poofier than it already is.
    Personally, I think a good haircut is the one the customer, and only the customer, is happy with.

    My hairstylist does something similar to the Deva Cut on me, and I like it. I think it's worth it...but I only pay 40 some odd bucks for it...Not sure what a Deva Cut is going for. Main thing is find a hairstylist that really understands curly hair (mine luckily also has curly hair herself)...of course, finding one is easier said than done.
    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    Yep. It really depends on the way your hair behaves and what you want it to do (ex, if you want to wear it straight). The Devacut was great for me, but I have no idea how it would look straightened.

    I read somewhere that a good cut for curly hair should be able to be worn many ways (straight, curly, wavy) and should have movement.

    I've had two good deva cuts and one poor one. After the good cuts, I found that I could wear my hair parted in the middle or to the side and loved this versatility.

    I have VERY curly hair, with the curls underneath being so curly that I don't think I could wear my hair straight and it look good (even with a good cut). The really curly strands underneath would look too long when straightened. However, I do vary the amount I scunch the hair, and that varies my look (curly vs boingy curly!). I think the same would work if I had wavier hair.

    In terms of the length of layers as well as the amount of layers, it completely depends on the length of hair as well as the style you're looking for. I have a long narrow face, and hated the deva cut on me that only gave me a few long layers....it just made my face look EVEN longer! Hope that helps!

    My hair doesn't have too much "weight" to it and has never really moved freely, not sure any cut would make a difference to that.
