If you have curly hair, this has happened to you once in your life, the stylist spins you around only to reveal uneven curls, a triangle, weird shapes, or a do that makes you want to sprint to the nearest hat shop.
How do we prevent these hair atrocities from happening? It all starts with dry hair and a customized, specialized cut meant for swavy, wavy, curly and extremely curly hair. We recommend the Deva Cut to our curly hair clients and here’s why.
What is a Deva Cut?
Deva Cut is a dry cutting technique developed by Curl guru, Lorraine Massey, “Curly Girl: The Handbook” author. The Deva Cut requires extensive training, and all of Velvet’s stylists are Deva certified. Instead of cutting the hair when it’s wet and straight, the hair is cut in its natural state at an angle, not disrupting the curl pattern. If we cut a client’s curly locks when it’s wet and straight, depending on the curl type, it may dry in a shape that is inconsistent and not what they were expecting.
Curls As Unique As You
No two set of curls are alike; some are tight, some are looser, while some clients have multiple types! This technique goes with the curl instead of fighting it. It gives curly hair the freedom to do its own thing. The proof is in the curls, once clients get a Deva Cut, they rarely switch back.
Not a One Size Fits All Kind of Salon
Every Velvet appointment, regardless of type, starts with a thorough consultation to figure out your dream do. Whatever texture, curl pattern, or color you have, we evolve to whatever is happening on that person’s head. I’ve never cut two people’s hair the same way. It’s all about customizing for that individual.
