RUN AWAY!! I was so excited about coming here after running into an acquaintance with beautiful curly hair. She recommended Rick at Devachan on Broome St. I made an appointment and he snipped my hair dry for about 5 minutes then sent me to a stylist for a wash and dry. He checked me at the end after my hair was glopped down with product and snipped for another minute. The next week I went to my colorist at another salon and while she was blowing my hair out she was horrified and asked what happened. One side of my hair was 2 inches shorter then the other. I had fly away frizzy looking bang like pieces on my forehead. I burst into tears and she offered to fix it, but I called Devachan. They said I could see Rick for an "adjustment" (I guess thats what they call screw up) I said I wouldn't let him near me with a scissors so they let me see Rosie another Senior Stylist. Even she looked horrified when she saw what he did to me. She fixed it as best she could, cutting each curl individually , the result is much shorter then I would normally go and rounder then I would wear it. I like my hair long, layered and curly, it is now more like a bowl. My tip for this salon, is Save Your Money and Your Hair and go somewhere else!!
I am done with Devachan Salon. I use all of their products. I've been there numerous times. My hairstylist's name was Robert. I have repeatedly told him I do not like the hairstyle that he insists on cutting, especially since he lops off half of my hair!
I had finally got my hair to the length that I want and all I asked for was to pull up the top layer to mitigate the "pyramid head" effect. Instead he makes the layers shallower and cuts the hair to half length. He says he didn't want me to have a "Bob" and that "He loves this style on me"
Well I don't love this hairstyle and to think that after 4 visits and repeatedly expressing that I want my hair long and I don't want my hair to look like a pumpkin, he would give me a different hairstyle.
I have also been there and had a different stylist who equally had no regard for what I was asking and how my hair works. If you get there and you find that you and your stylist inherently agree on how your hair should look, great. Otherwise don't go back a second time. They just don't listen to you.
Devachan Salon- Worst hair dresser – This place is the worst salon i have ever been to. the hairdresser does not listen to what you tell him and thinks he knows what is going to look best... guess what he was wrong and now my hair looks messed up. I dont recommend
SECOND UPDATE – ATTENTION
All you curly haired girls who, like me, have had nightmare haircuts, I have found the MOST AWESOME, DREAM hair stylist at Devachan, who works wonders with curly hair and will make you love your curls. Her name is Luna.
As always, I am servous having my curls cut because of such horror stories, however, after recently having a fabulous experience with Kirsten, my colorist at Devachanm, I returned for a haircut.
From the very start, Luna was lovely and warm and took the time to ask questions, consider my needs and opionions and offer her professional suggestions. I was extremely impressed right off the bat. The fact that she actually took the time to cover all the previously mentioned, made me, a usually nervous client feel comfortable and at ease in her hands.
After the cut was complete, came the most luxurious shampoo and massage you can imagine. It was truely a "spa" experience.
Upon complettion of styling and drying, I actually did not recognize my curls.
.............MY CURLS NEVER LOOKED BETTER!!!!!!
..............Suddenly the curls I had hated my whole life were BOUNCY, SPRINGY, SHINY AND VIBRANT..................they never looked better.
It was an AMAZING HAIRCUT.........My hair looks AMAZING and Luna is AMAZING!
Thank you to Luna and The Devachan Salon.
Since writing my previous review after having my color done by Kristen several days ago, I feel it is important to update my experience and I must compliment her work yet again.
I cannot get over how SHINY,VIBRANT AND RADIANT the color is. The light bouncing off my hair is incredible.
I love it more and more with every passing day.
Amazing retreat – Me and my mom came here for their spa week specials. I decided to get the 50min facial and my mom got the 50 min exfoliation. Upon entering we were given a locker which had sandals, a robe, a wrap and a towel. The steam room and showers were amazing...unfortunately, the sauna was out of order. We hung out in their departure lounge for a few minutes before our treatment. They had plenty of refreshments including: walnuts, almonds, trail mix, veggies and fruit. The decor of the lounge was extremely tranquil. There was a beautiful waterfall in the lounge too.... I almost forgot I was in the heart of the city. The facial was great... and my face felt amazing. The therapist explained everything to before starting the treatment and was very informative. They did the extraction for an extra $40 which was well worth it. My skin was so smooth and hydrated after the treatment My mom told me her body scrub was very invigorating and it included a mini facial. Following our treatment we relaxed in the departure lounge while sipping some tea and snacks. The spa has a no tipping policy... So our treatment were very affordable. I will definitely be back to visit this spa very soon.
GREAT salon! – My inital visit to this salon was for a 'brazilian' mani and pedi...I have to say that, although costly, my manicure lasted weeks! I then began using the salon services. I have to say Joseph, colorist, is AMAZING!!! My hair had about 4 different colors in it when I first started seeing him! Without dying my hair one color and doing highlights all over again he was able to get my hair color under control. Robert cut my hair and I got compliments on my hair while WEARING A HAT! Yes, a hat. My most recent visit to this salon was in August . Robert was occupied so I cut my hair with William Lemos. I have to say I've never been so happy with my haircut than when William cut it! I am sadden to report William is no longer with Devachan Salon. Ladies I know how hard it is to find a great stylist and it's an unsettling feeling to sit in a chair and trust a stranger with your hair....That's why I ask whoever is reading this review if you have ANY information as to where William is now, please let me know. He is absolutely amazing and I'd follow him to just about anywhere. If you go to this salon I HIGHLY recommend Joseph as a colorist and Robert for a cut.
Best Salon for Curly Hair – Devachan salon is Awesome!! Best cut and color i have EVER had... Robert cut my hair dry (i have always had my hair cut wet) but a dry cut is definatly the way to go with curly hair. Rachel was my Colorist she painted highlights onto my hair (which i also have never had done) in my experiences i have always had tin foiled highlights. The painting is amazing for all you curly girls out there! I highly reccomend devachan!
An absolute heaven for curly girls! Thank you Devachan! – I normally do not write reviews, but my choice in choosing Devachan was based on a lot of research and I hope this will be helpful to others. As a business owner myself in the beauty field, I understand the value of customer service and satisfaction when it comes to ones appearance. Devachan deserves a spotlight as "THE" place to go for curly hair . I have botticelli-like curls which I have embraced, and cared for for over 25 years. I have gone to the same hairdresser for most of those years who always did a great job. However, after a recommendation about their products, my hair was even better! I used them for a year, watched the video and educated myself. Finally, I decided to make a change and I am so glad that I did! I was recommended to Jackie who is so wonderful and talented. She has a natural approach to hair and beauty and spent so much time with me. She prescribed me a regime with the products and gave me the best cut. I have always spent a lot of time and money on my hair. I have spent up to $250 consistently for haircuts without thinking twice, but my hair has never looked this beautiful. The curls are silky, soft, and shiny. Devachan is very academic in their approach and they truly know curly hair. Many stylists make it 'difficult' to care for curly hair and it doesn't have to be. I have always been told that my hair had to be shorter to keep the bouncy curls... not true. Jackie did exactly what I wanted. Kept it long and gave my curls incredible life. Treat yourself and get an education from Devachan. I have read that people thought the staff was not attentive, absolutely false. They are wonderful. I have also read that they push their products, also false. You are going to the salon for their expertise and method of cutting/styling curls. Listen to them, they really know what they are doing. I can't wait to go back!
Not Just For Curly Hair – Two friends with curly hair recommended Jeffrey. I was hesitant because my hair is mostly straight with some wave. I got a wonderful, beautiful cut and a fantastic (straight) blowout. He patiently listened to what I wanted but also had some great recommendations based on correcting my last (bad) haircut and the shape of my face as well as giving me some great tips on how to maintain my hair. I have very long hair but like it to have movement and frame my face and that's exactly what he did. My boyfriend noticed immediately and complimented me without being prompted! The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. They wash your hair while you recline which is so nice and relaxing. There's a very welcoming atmosphere especially for a high end salon. I've been to many of the high end salons in NYC and many of them are pretentious and have attitude and deliver mediocre results. This is my first review for a salon because I'm so excited I found this place and don't have to try anywhere else!
WISH I LIVED CLOSER! – I started going to Devachan about 5 years ago. My mother lives in SOHO and recommended it to me. I, however, live in Florida. I go to Devachan everytime I go in to see my mom! Antonio is an AMAZING colorist, a great conversationalist, and also has quite a sense of humor! Marvin cuts my hair (dry) and it ALWAYS looks stunning. Although the prices are quite insane, I try my best to stay faithful to Devachan because they've NEVER let me down.
