What's a DevaCut?
A DevaCut is a special technique for cutting curly and wavy hair, and its main principle is to work with the unique curl and wave pattern of every person with a curl-by-curl cutting technique. It was created by Lorraine Massey, the former co-owner of Devachan Salon and the DevaCurl brand, and the author of The Curly Girl Handbook, and Silver Hair.
The key feature of this method lies in cutting the hair dry, in its natural form, simply because everybody wears their hair dry not wet. This allows us to see how the different textures naturally fall and to sculpt the necessary shape. With a wet haircut, we absolutely can’t understand or see the end result. For those who have straight hair, this may not be so critical, but for girls with frizzy hair, it can be a catastrophe. Their natural curls have a spring factor, which is best seen when the hair is dry. The cut is more about making each curl look its best and not just a way to “tame” the curls. A Deva cut is done layer by layer, curl by curl with a focus on a a beautiful face framing shape whether it's a perfectly shaped curly bob or the signature waterfall cut with it's cascade of waves and curls. This technique is suitable for all curl patterns and textures.
What is Pintura? It literally means “to paint,” and with this technique we apply hues directly onto the hair without the use of foil. We “paint” this way because it allows more application freedom, as a result we are able to individually identify which curls catch the light the best, and highlight them to add more dimension to someone’s individual texture. There is a seamless start to each highlight which gives them an easy grow out, but they don't get lost in your curls like traditional foil highlights.
