Our stylists will access where your curls patterns may vary, density, fineness or thickness of strands, spring factor and hydration level of your curls. All these factors must be considered to deliver the best results for your curls and curl goals.

What is a Deva Cut or Dry Cut
The Deva Cut was created by the Devachan Salon and is a special dry cut technique for curly, wavy or coily hair. The dry cut is more about making each curl look its best and not just a way to “tame” the curls. The cut is performed on dry hair so the stylist sees how each curl will fall and each individual curl is shaped.
Express Cut | Cut & Go | Dusting
What is a dusting, cut & go or express cut? These are services related to a maintenance cut not requiring a wash and style. Have you mastered your curly or wavy style since your first appointment. A great option to keep ends fresh is to book this service. Come in curly washed, styled and 100% dry and we will dust your ends. Maintaining length and keep those curls popping with freshly oxiginated ends is the best way to encourage healthy hair growth. Service is discounted based on length and thickness of your hair and time required for service. This is a maintenance cut booked every second cut to keep your ends fresh. This is not a cut to book for a new shape or drastic change. Book this service every 3-4 months depending on your curl pattern. Shorter curly hair styles will be in more frequently to maintain volume and shape. Longer hair will be in at about the 4-5 month mark.
