Womensblogtalk.com really helped me make an informed choice about the beauty products that have mushroomed in the market, each one claiming to be the best product that ever existed. Thanks to their scientific and sensible approach towards explaining each and every aspect of the beauty products, I feel myself really enlightened when shopping for beauty products.

I would recommend everyone who fancies a beauty cream, lotion, serum or anti-wrinkle product, to go through the review portal to learn all about what the product can do based on science. We all know how the advertisement industry works, right?

My favorite city oasis! Deva Spa offers great services at really great prices. I go in about three times a year for their signature facial, which leaves my skin glowing! BuywithmeNYC has a great deal going on right now, offering facials and massages at Deva Spa for only $35.00. Learn more about it here: http://bit.ly/dynFHu

I was there last year November (as I'm from the Chicago area) and April cut my hair. She did the best job ever. I have had my hair trimmed and cut in Lake Zurich,IL. and Glen Ellyn, IL. but the stylist just do not even compare to April. I'm trying to get them to take classes to learn this way of cutting hair but to no avail. April I miss my hair looking awesome and can't wait to visit NY again.
I let April figure out what hairstyle would be good for me. She gave me a very flattering style. The price was a little high but I would gladly pay it to look like I did. I bought the Large bottle of the Shampoo and conditioner and the gel and the diffuser attachment for the hairdryer. I go on their website to purchase the products I need. I laso love the scent of the products.

DO NOT GIVE YOUR BUSINESS TO THIS SALON!!! (The products are great and you can buy them for 2/3 of the price at a beauty supply store -just search for one in ur neighborhood- COSTCO also carries their stuff) The staff is the rudest and most prenetious EVER. I gave them 3 tries for the benefit of the doubt and now realize that I wasted my money. My first time there was satisfactory- pretty good cut and style, though my stylist was rude, innattentive and snotty. (I did learn a few things about styling my hair though) The 2nd time the stylist spent more time telling me how she had no time to cut and style my hair than actually doing anything to my hair. She was rude and completely inattentive. I got a half haircut, then a wash, then the SHAMPOO person set my hair. It came out heavy, limp, frizzy and with NO volume and my only request was that I have volume. The stylist then proceeded to finish cutting my hair, which just made it frizzier cuz she had to touch it. When I mentioned that it did not come out the same as the last timeI was there, she said that I should see this visit as just another trial and I should come back AGAIN to get it set. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?? I was embarassed to go out to dinner with my husband afterwards b/c my hair looked SOOOO bad- it wasnt even salvageable in a pony tail! So i decided to give it one more try 3 months later (only b/c the products are so good and i though maybe the 2nd visit was a fluke) Well, guess what----my hair fell flat like 45 min after I left salon and AGAIN I was treated rudely. I mean, if you are a curly hair salon, can;t you gel my hair so that it is not frizzy or heavy? Did you know that they offer their clients magazines and a glass of water or iced tea? Do you know that my stylist never ONCE offered me either in THREE visits? My blood pressure is going up right now while I am writing this and thinking about how utterly rude everyone is there. AGain, I LOOOVE the one conditioner and the angel and will continue to use them and the styling techniques I learned there, but i will NEVER, EVER go back to this place for a haircut or setting- EVER!!!!! I want to feel papmperd and special when I go to a "fancy" salon- instead, i walked out all 3 times feeling like i was a total burden.

To All Clients of Devachan,
This is hairstylist Luciana D'Angelo formely from Devachan . I was sexually herassed by the male owners of this company. This company also does not have licensed hairdressers working here. I have been apart of this company for 10 plus years as a hairstylist .The business onwers that sexually abused me is Denis Dasilva and Keith Magnussen . I am now going to explain the real reason why I was fired.
The reason I am no longer with Devachan is because I was pysically sexually herassed by both owners and have a civil suite pending against the company. I also have police reports and other eye witnesses that saw my disgusting treament there.I have proof of everything.!!!!!!
I really wish none of you believe them and all of the positive reviews here. Lisa Johnson is the PR for the company and she does all the reviews . There are also many other people that get paid under the table to write the reviews. All I can say positive about the company is their product ingredients are great and I will be continuing using them.
I was consistantly physically herassed and sexually herassed and was scared to loose my employment . Both men treated me in such a horrible manner that I felt threatened on a day to day basis. I was an 8 year stylist there and when I refused sex from Denis Dasilva I was then fired. And when i brought this to the other owners Sheri Harbinger and Lorraine Massey I was forced to keep my mouth quite. I am no longer keeping silent..........
I was also told I would be punched in my face by keith magnussen if I was a man. I also was told by him in front of clients "ya i'd f--k you'' . They completely destroyed my self-worth. Please be aware of this behavior. And again for all those clients who want to reach me directly please feel free to contact me at anytime I am here to answer all hair care quesstions and product questions.

I waited 15 minutes for my appointment, then Susan left me in the middle of my cut for another 10 minutes to finish someone else. When I complained the owner asked me if I wanted to leave, with half my hair cut. To add insult to injury I ended u with the worst mess of a haircut! Terrible..

Great Great Great Great Great Great Great place to get your hair. Especially if you have very curly hair. The salon is very expensive but once you see how your hair comes out after all the washing and cutting and drying the money won't seem so bad. These people so know what they are doing and know what to do with curly hair unlike some other salons. They will also give you great tips on how to properly wash and style your hair.

Great haircuts for curls. They will show you have to style your hair and their products are fantastic. Expect to wait a while for an appointment because this place is hugely growing in popularity- and they know it, their prices go up every time I return.

PROS: great haircuts
CONS: pricey

I've been to Ouidad, and now that I've found Devachan, I'll never go back. This salon does the best curly hair in Manhattan. Very SoHo, and not cheap, but I've never felt so good about my hair. The experience is wonderful and the results are lasting. I recommend their products, especially the AnGel.

PROS: Quality

I've been trying different spas all over the country for 20 years. The tranquil feeling you get from the second you walk in transports you to relax in another time and place. So clean, serene and beautiful. I loved the deep tissue massage. I have very tight muscles and I really need them worked and everytime I get massages at devachan they are always exactly what I need.

I made an appointment with Julie and let her know what I was looking for. Other than it being a little short for my liking, I was very happy with the Devachan experience. The women at the Front Desk at the Broome Street location were very lovely and accomodating. Jule picked me up at reception and she explained they cut hair dry so they can see your hair as it lays naturally. She talked a little about the products and caring for curly hair. Then her assistant took me to get my hair washed and took such good care of me! He gave me a great wash and showed me how to style my hair- leave some conditioner in, apply gel while hair is still wet, don't towel dry and then styled my hair to perfection. Julie came back over and snipped a few more pieces and I was set to go. They explained and recommended their products, but it wasn't a hard sell which was refreshing. Overall, it's a lot to pay for a haircut, but for years I was having my hair cut cheaply since I figured it didn't matter with curly hair. Devachan showed me I was way wrong. My hair looks much better with the right cut.

It was my first time in Devachan,walking down the stairs looking at the pretty rose peddles created a welcoming feeling.I have made my appointment a week before my service & a young gentleman by the name of Joseph welcomed me,i had 3 different hair colors in my head and had no idea of what to expect.Joseph went through a thorough consultation & worked his magic.I must say i was nervous at first but just as he determined what tones worked best for my completion and told me up front the maintenance it required i surrendered .While at the salon i started to observe the cutting method which was very unique.This is when i was referred to April they cut the hair dry and work with you natural texture.April took her time & was super sweet .My hair has never felt & looked as good.My color was balanced & my haircut was stunning, Its the best feeling walking into a place & not worrying on how your hair will turn out. \nThank you Devachan!

I went to Devachan after my girlfriend recommended the salon to me and I am amazed with the results! To be honest, I am always nervous going to a new salon because I have curly hair that can sometimes be difficult to style, but they did an amazing job! I'm so happy I took the plunge and tried something new. I won't ever go back to my old salon. If you're looking for a new hair salon, I definitely recommend Devachan!

Pros: Excellent with curls

Cons: the haircut can take a while

I have curly hair, obviously. But it's not nice curly hair, it's fine, nappy, and the curl is uneven. I've gotten my hair cut here twice, but it's not really worth the price. The hair cut was fine, not exceptional. BUT it didn't suit me at all. It didn't flatter my face or suit my lifestyle. However, at least it's better than Ouidad. \n\nI've seen people get really great cuts here. I'm guessing they have better hair than I do.

Great haircut if you want to look like Jane Fonda in Klute, but only on one side. Just like Veronicac mentions in her review- there are too many things to point out about this messed up haircut of choppy nonsense. its totally uneven with one side untouched and the other all hacked into. If you want your hair to look like a mullet/half shag on ONE SIDE ONLY then go blow a few hundred for a haircut here.

Rick Mahoney, top colorist & hair cutter. Spend all your time with an ace. Not only does he know hair, but he is wise and funny. So you can have a fun & valuable time while getting to look your best. I've been seeing Rick for 8 years, and he only gets better.

Ive never been to a place like this! The staff was so warm and welcoming! It not only made me feel happy to be there but they all gave me the sense that they were happy to be there too! Working in the spa industry myself I know thats hard to come by. \nMy stylists name was Rick and he was F-f-f-fantastic! He told me more about my hair in the first 30 seconds of meeting me than i could have rambled to him in 30 minutes. He asked me my likes/dislikes regarding my hair, provided me with educational info on what I was doing wrong but kept the appointment upbeat and positive. He let me vent my frustrations w my curly hair although I'm sure he hears the same stuff all day long. I was completely comfortable and I laughed the whole way through. Not only did I leave Devachan with my greatest haircut to date but I had a smile ear to ear the whole way through! Thanks so much guys!

I've spent the past 7years recovering from mediocre to down-right awful haircuts in search of a stylist that could cut - but actually shape - my long, thick, poofy, unruly CURLY hair. My girl of years had moved away :( Spotted this gal on the subway rockin an awesomely shaped head of curly hair and brazenly asked her for the deal. ""Devachan, and ask for LUCIANA"", she brightly replied. Lo and Behold, a Godsend! It's really one of the best cuts I've had in years. Not what I expected - but better. They cut your hair dry and curly. Makes sense, no? :) And the salon is quite lovely. It's chi-chi without being daunting, and Luciana is marvelous. Totally booked my next appt on my way out. If you need your curly locks done - you absolutely MUST try this place, especially Luciana!

Pros: Atmosphere, Awesome Cut, Great location

I love this salon! I have been a customer for several years and I always get the BEST cuts from LUCIANA. Not only is she an awesome stylist who cuts cool, but not too over the top, she's also HYSTERICAL and FUN. I have wavy hair and she's done many versions of a great shaggy, layered, easy to maintain, but hip as hell look for me through hair long and short, banged and unbanged. Recently, I was in a big hurry and my hair didn't look as Luciana-fabulous as usual. I went back to the salon and she spent an extra 20 or more minutes making sure it was perfect. And it is. \r\n\r\nTo be honest, I was pretty unhappy with the color I'd been getting at Devachan. The highlightrs were always super-stripy and not natural looking OR especially interesting at all. Not getting either of those right is bad news. I was bummed because it meant that I had started to get my hair cut and colored at two different places -- major PAIN IN THE BUTT. Until Luciana recommended NIKI (I hope I spelled her name right!) to me. I told her -- pretty vaguely -- what I wanted and she NAILED it. I have a gorgeous head of auburn highlights which other colorists said wouldn't look good, but they look great. I have gotten SO MANY compliments lately on my cut and color. \r\n\r\nIf you have even remotely wavy hair, get your tush to this salon. And I didn't even discuss the head massage, but something tells me that's well covered on these pages.

Liked the cut I got a lot but a little disappointed with the service. My stylist had to keep fleeting off to deal with another client as well as me! Also, lots of sales pressure. However, really do like the haircut.

I have long, highlighted naturally curly hair and live in Seattle. After being up here for two years, I still hadn't found a stylist that I LOVED in Seattle so I decided to give the NYC curl salons a try the next time I was in the city. I checked the reviews for Devachan, Curlisto and Ouidad. Upon learning that Curlisto was founded by a former Ouidad-ite, I narrowed it down further and then decided upon Devachan. When I walked in, my beau's comment was ""it was like you walked into the mother ship""; everyone there had and embraced their curly hair! \r\n\r\nKeith, my stylist, was a bit of a hoot - very serious and intense, to the point that he came to appear in my eyes as the Frasier Crane of hair. He asked many questions prior to picking up the scissors, and continued to ask questions and listen to my responses while cutting. He was amazing with the scissors, whipping them out and back as if his next appointment was a throwdown at the OK Corral. He zeroed in on individual locks and when he was finished, put me in the capable hands of my colorist until after my rinse. \r\n\r\nLarry, my colorist, was amazing....and the anti-Keith (but both were great in their own way!). Open and approachable, with a winning smile and a great sense of what I was looking for in my hair color. He obviously loves what he does and it showed in his attention to color. He took the time to listen to what I wanted and also made great suggestions. \r\n\r\nMy ""shampoo"" (no-poo, really) woman was Analiese. She gave me some absolutely wonderful advice while as-gently-as-possible trying to remove knots and snarls from my long hair while wet. While I briefly came to view her as the Marquise de Sade, in the end her fabulous advice and counsel regarding how to properly care for my tresses came shining through and positively colored the entire experience. \r\n\r\nCurly girls, this is home.

I used to go to Kiyoko in late 2005 - I had been going to her for about a year and she was great. In February of 2006 when I went to London I got my hair cut at Trevor Sorbie, a few months later when it was time to get it cut again I was finding it more difficult to get to Devachan because of my pregnancy, so I went somewhere else. I should have toughed it out, because going somewhere else was the biggest mistake! I started to hop around to different stylists, some were good, some were awful, but none were ever as good as Kiyoko. Two years later after having a terrible hair cut I called and made an appt with Kiyoko. She did an amazing job (as always) and I am never going any where else ever again!!!!
