This salon is outstanding. There is NOTHING in Delaware to compare it to. First they use only the best quality products. Second, the coloring power of Saiko and Carmen is beyond anything else you will find anywhere. I moved to Florida and for 15 months I'm still struggling to find color as good as either of them. Tomorrow, I try another new place. The most amazing thing is that both Saiko and Carmen have stood by me helping me how to instruct the colorist to do as good of ...a job as they did! PLUS the first time I met Saiko back in 2004 she immediately talked about my hair health. She is amazing. She knows hair and if you want to learn about your hair (and can be tough enough to hear the truth) she will tell you. I'm taking special vitamins ever since. My daughter's hair (following the same instructions) is a million times healthier than mine and looks amazing. Excellent salon! See More Read Less

I was in the market for a new salon and, because I have curly hair, I decided to try out Beauty Bar for a DevaCut. I was hopeful that getting a haircut specifically for curly hair would be worth the long drive to the salon. Unfortunately, it was a big (and pricey) disappointment. Though my hair looked nice when I left the salon, as the day went on and my curls relaxed a bit, it became clear that the cut was *very* uneven. My prior stylists have painstakingly cross-checked the cut to be sure that any unevenness that my curls might be hiding gets corrected, but not this one. I'm not sure if it was the stylist's decision or if it's part of the DevaCut, but the dry-cutting method left lots of random long bits mixed in, and there was only minimal cross-checking (mostly visual, rather than careful inspection) that would have revealed these overlooked pieces as well as the overall lopsidedness. After they missed these obvious issues, I wasn't about to drive the 30+ minutes out to the salon again and have them fix it, so I ended up trimming the most obviously uneven areas myself as a temporary fix. It's still pretty visibly uneven, though--one side touches my shoulder and the other doesn't.I'm now just waiting for my hair to grow out enough to get a new cut somewhere else much closer and for a much better price.

The first time I used the salon, I made an appointment for color, with Saiko. Not knowing exactly what I wanted, she skillfully whizzed through pics on her I-pad to help me communicate likes and dislikes, which was great, since I have a tough time "communicating hair". The base color and highlights were beautiful! She had steered me to and fro, considering my skin tone, hair type, age, and slight fear of change. Last night was my third visit. I had called on a whim and was a...ble to land an appointment with Denise (although I wouldn't recommend waiting til the last minute, as this is a busy place- it was just luck). I already had my prior color choices locked down, which she replicated beautifully, but I was ready for a change in cut. I have had the same long past shoulders bob with few layers [email protected] years. We discussed a to the ear bob picture. She again considered my age, hair type, and gave me the confidence I needed to "go for it". Once the back of my hair was cut to 1 cm below my neck, she offered me wine or a margarita. I took it! However, it wasn't the drink talking. I truly loved the cut ( which we agreed to change a bit in the front - my point being she was sensitive enough to review the cut as we went along). Final point- the cut did look like the picture! How many times have I had cuts over the years that looked nothing like the pictures I've shown? Plenty! To the lady who was Denise's next client, who apparently had been waiting, I don't believe she was informed that you were there. She was supposed to have a man haircut next and while working on me kept checking the window for him. When she finally inquired at the desk, she was informed that you "had been there"-. I would have advised her that she didn't need to spend the extra time with me, had we known. I was happy enough pre-styling. So sorry! Thanks for the pick me up, Denise! Saiko, love you too and good luck with the expansion! See More Read Less

I found this salon by searching for stylists in Delaware that are certified to do Deva Cuts. I'm really pleased to have met Darlene Regan, and I had a great experience.I'm always careful to find stylists who specifically say they have experience with curly hair, and I was unable to find anyone in Dover, where I live. My stylist of 8 years no longer does hair, and I just heard about this "Deva Cut" thing, so I made the trip to Hockessin to see what Darlene could do.Because it was my first visit, I got the "Deva Cut and initial consultation" service. I only waited a minute or two before Darlene was ready for me. We chatted for awhile about my hair, what I'm looking for, what she can do, and she showed me her portfolio, which was a series of before and after photos on her Pinterest page. She took her time, answered all of my questions, and explained what we were going to do for the rest of the appointment.The Deva Cut is difference because the stylist cuts your hair while it's dry, in order to see how your curls fall and get the best shape for you. Darlene was great about stopping periodically to show me the progress and get my feedback. Next, Alyssa washed my hair and applied product. Both Darlene and Alyssa were really communicative with me, helping me see and feel how much conditioner to leave in my hair and how much of each product to use. This was great, because if they hadn't had me touch my hair as we went along and showed me exactly how much product they used, I wouldn't have ever known how much care and moisture my hair really need.Next, I sat under the hair dryer/diffuser, which looked like a 1960s sci fi mod-type spaceship, and that was cool. Finally, Darlene finished the style and cut. Because she took before photos of my hair, I was able to see exactly how amazingly different my curls looked with appropriate care and style. I'm really, really happy with what she did with my hair!The whole process took about 2 hours, and very little of that was wait time. I'm sure it will take less time the next time I go, since I won't need the consultation. I'm excited to have a stylist that understands curly hair. I was a little guarded about the product upsell, but the truth is that the Deva Cut is associated with Deva Curl products, so there's a push to buy the products, too. Darlene wasn't pushy about it at all, which I really appreciated. At the very end, Darlene gave me a brochure about the Deva Curl line of products and handy check list of products that she recommends specifically for me. I see that this salon is rated as being in the moderate price range. I would say it's pricey for me; I've been getting $40 hair cuts for several years. But, because it's located in Hockessin, and this visit included the consultation, it probably is fair to say that the price is moderate. My 2 hour cut, style, and consultation was $65, so you be the judge for yourself.The cons for me are the commute and the price. However, I only get my hair cut about 3 or 4 times a year, so the price isn't too big a deal. My experience was great and I'll go back. Read Less

The other reviews are sort of sad, since I had a great experience at Beauty Bar. First I want to say how beautiful and clean, it is inside. I love the simple green and white colors and how much light the place has. I've been salon shopping for the last few years. I have been trying to find a stylist who understands curly hair. Most stylists just want to wash, condition, and blow dry/style; get you in, get you out. Beauty Bar is not that type of place. I found them through the DevaCurl website under "find a salon" because I was looking for a stylist that knows curly hair. I reached out to Beauty Bar through their facebook. A stylist named Darlene got back to me pretty quickly. She is very knowledgeable about the DevaCurl system and has gone to NYC several times for their classes. I'm sure she has many more credentials than I am listing. She has been a stylist for a couple decades.I had my first DevaCut with Darlene last week. I had a 15 minute complimentary consultation beforehand. She was super patient. Washed and styled my hair; taught me some things. Also they have these mobile Deva dryers that you sit under; pretty cool.I think I was there for an hour and 45 minutes total. At the time I didn't realize that I wanted my hair shorter. This was a different cut than I was used to. But that night I realized I wanted it shorter so I contacted the salon and Darlene was able to fit me in a couple days later. I felt bad for having to come back but I wanted to be happy with my hair. But again, she was patient. So she cut my hair shorter and even washed/styled it. I am happier with my new summer do and I know I will be coming back. Read Less

Darlene just gave me the perfect curly haircut! I was a little nervous to have my first Deva cut, but the result was even better than I had imagined. Darlene and her assistant were both very attentive and made me feel like a star. Darlene never pressured me to buy any of the Deva products, but based on how my hair looked and felt afterwards, I just had to buy some! Coming from someone who has never spent more than $30 on a cut, the extra splurge was worth every penny. Don't hesitate to visit Darlene if you have curly hair. She really gets it! Read Less

先日、デラウェア方面へ行くついでに行ってみました。10分前に到着して、店内へ。受付の女性(Robin)は事務的で無愛想、温かみは感じられず。予約時刻まできっちり待たされる。(10分待った) 担当のSaikoは一度も挨拶に来ず。別のスタイリストがシャンプーをしてくれるとのことで、シャンプー台へ。シャンプーは普通で、可も不可もなくというところか。シャンプー終了後、濡れた髪のまま、店内の一角で待たされる。近くにあるカウンターに物を置いたが、細かな髪の毛がびっちりついてきたので、慌てて物をどける。20分後、カット台がある場所へ移動する。そこでさらに10分以上待たされる。待たされる時間が長いので、予約をする意味がないように思えた。店内:全体的に狭くて汚い。ホームページの開放的な画像と全く異なる。午前中に行ったにもかかわらず、床には髪の毛が飛び散っていて、鏡の前の棚の上にも細­かい髪の毛が散乱していたり、髪の毛がたくさんついたヘアブラシやコームが無造作に置いてあった。窓のサッシや、壁にまで髪の毛がへばり付いていて、日頃からこまめに掃除していないことが一目瞭然。お客の目につく場所が汚れていても平気な神経に疑問を抱く。今回の目的:ヘアカット。予約時刻から40分を過ぎて、ようやくカット開始。技術的にはPhiladelphiaのチャイナタウンにある美容室の美容師と同じぐらいのレベルに思えた。個人的には、チャイナタウンに軍配が上がる。(値段も4分の1以下なので) 日本人美容師=熟練した日本の技術、と早とちりした我が身を怨む。彼女は20代前半でアメリカへ来てるので、日本での美容師経験はほんの数年と思われる。(仮に日本で美容師免許を取得していても、それは30年前の話か?) 施術中は、ヘアドライアーの使い方を間違えているせいか、高温の熱風が直接地肌に当たって、とにかく痛かった。再訪は無いなとこの時点で確信。残念ながら、当方時々垣間見える彼女の人間性が苦手であり、おまけに店内の商品(スタイリング剤やシャンプーなど)を売りつけようと必死で、最初から最後までUncomfortableな滞在だった。カット代は60ドル。大目に見ても40ドルが妥当ではないか(技術面、ロケーション、その他)。オーナーだから、とチップを遠慮することはないので、行かれる方はキャッシュ(現金)をお忘れなく。支払い時のRobinの対応は相変わらず事務的で、何だかな~と思いつつ店内を後に。サロンで通常味わうリラックスする気分は皆無の経験だった。こうして、最初で最後の訪問は終了しました。当方には合わなかったというだけであって、Small Businessを助けたい、と思う心の優しい方や、技術うんぬんよりアメリカのサロンを日本語で体験してみたい、という方には向いている場所なのかもしれません。 Read Less

I will never go back to this salon I had my hair done in the spring at Beauty Bar and was super impressed until a professional left lighter on my hair for well over an hour. Needless to say my hair broke off! I went in for ombre and came out with all over highlights..I even brought pictures of what I wanted for an example.As soon as she started blow drying my hair I noticed more than a few strands in her hand.. red flag. Two days later I washed my hair and my hair began to break off and left like elastic... my hair was super healthy prior to that and I had long layers. I was respectful and called the salon asking to speak to Emily and she had me come in, she covered the bleach blonde pieces that were an inch long, up with a glaze and put a deep conditioner in, the color didn't take and my hair felt worse. I requested my money back and I was told Saiko doesn't wish to give you your money back because having you return is a pricy service that we did for free. Well well then okay.Over the next few months my shoulder length hair began to break off more and more everytime I washed my hair. I should have fought harder for my money and reported Emily to the cosmetology board because no one should leave lighter on for more than an hour. I guess I was just so upset having my hair break off. I went back to a more pricy but fantastic stylist in Wilmington near the riverfront and finally was able to get a longer Bob now that my hair is in better shape 6 months later. Lesson learned don't go to Beauty Bar. Read Less

I had been growing my hair long for several years, and realized it was time for a good cut. My daughter is an assistant at the salon and I was a model for Darlene's Devacut class. She cut several inches off and now my hair looks and feels fantastic! I love, love, love my hair cut. And the Devacurl products make my very dry hair feel amazing! Thanks Darlene for my new do and allowing me to be your model! Read Less

The first time I used the salon, I made an appointment for color, with Saiko. Not knowing exactly what I wanted, she skillfully whizzed through pics on her I-pad to help me communicate likes and dislikes, which was great, since I have a tough time "communicating hair". The base color and highlights were beautiful! She had steered me to and fro, considering my skin tone, hair type, age, and slight fear of change. Last night was my third visit. I had called on a whim and was a...ble to land an appointment with Denise (although I wouldn't recommend waiting til the last minute, as this is a busy place- it was just luck). I already had my prior color choices locked down, which she replicated beautifully, but I was ready for a change in cut. I have had the same long past shoulders bob with few layers [email protected] years. We discussed a to the ear bob picture. She again considered my age, hair type, and gave me the confidence I needed to "go for it". Once the back of my hair was cut to 1 cm below my neck, she offered me wine or a margarita. I took it! However, it wasn't the drink talking. I truly loved the cut ( which we agreed to change a bit in the front - my point being she was sensitive enough to review the cut as we went along). Final point- the cut did look like the picture! How many times have I had cuts over the years that looked nothing like the pictures I've shown? Plenty! To the lady who was Denise's next client, who apparently had been waiting, I don't believe she was informed that you were there. She was supposed to have a man haircut next and while working on me kept checking the window for him. When she finally inquired at the desk, she was informed that you "had been there"-. I would have advised her that she didn't need to spend the extra time with me, had we known. I was happy enough pre-styling. So sorry! Thanks for the pick me up, Denise! Saiko, love you too and good luck with the expansion! See More Read Less

I found this salon by searching for stylists in Delaware that are certified to do Deva Cuts. I'm really pleased to have met Darlene Regan, and I had a great experience.I'm always careful to find stylists who specifically say they have experience with curly hair, and I was unable to find anyone in Dover, where I live. My stylist of 8 years no longer does hair, and I just heard about this "Deva Cut" thing, so I made the trip to Hockessin to see what Darlene could do.Because it was my first visit, I got the "Deva Cut and initial consultation" service. I only waited a minute or two before Darlene was ready for me. We chatted for awhile about my hair, what I'm looking for, what she can do, and she showed me her portfolio, which was a series of before and after photos on her Pinterest page. She took her time, answered all of my questions, and explained what we were going to do for the rest of the appointment.The Deva Cut is difference because the stylist cuts your hair while it's dry, in order to see how your curls fall and get the best shape for you. Darlene was great about stopping periodically to show me the progress and get my feedback. Next, Alyssa washed my hair and applied product. Both Darlene and Alyssa were really communicative with me, helping me see and feel how much conditioner to leave in my hair and how much of each product to use. This was great, because if they hadn't had me touch my hair as we went along and showed me exactly how much product they used, I wouldn't have ever known how much care and moisture my hair really need.Next, I sat under the hair dryer/diffuser, which looked like a 1960s sci fi mod-type spaceship, and that was cool. Finally, Darlene finished the style and cut. Because she took before photos of my hair, I was able to see exactly how amazingly different my curls looked with appropriate care and style. I'm really, really happy with what she did with my hair!The whole process took about 2 hours, and very little of that was wait time. I'm sure it will take less time the next time I go, since I won't need the consultation. I'm excited to have a stylist that understands curly hair. I was a little guarded about the product upsell, but the truth is that the Deva Cut is associated with Deva Curl products, so there's a push to buy the products, too. Darlene wasn't pushy about it at all, which I really appreciated. At the very end, Darlene gave me a brochure about the Deva Curl line of products and handy check list of products that she recommends specifically for me. I see that this salon is rated as being in the moderate price range. I would say it's pricey for me; I've been getting $40 hair cuts for several years. But, because it's located in Hockessin, and this visit included the consultation, it probably is fair to say that the price is moderate. My 2 hour cut, style, and consultation was $65, so you be the judge for yourself.The cons for me are the commute and the price. However, I only get my hair cut about 3 or 4 times a year, so the price isn't too big a deal. My experience was great and I'll go back. Read Less

The other reviews are sort of sad, since I had a great experience at Beauty Bar. First I want to say how beautiful and clean, it is inside. I love the simple green and white colors and how much light the place has. I've been salon shopping for the last few years. I have been trying to find a stylist who understands curly hair. Most stylists just want to wash, condition, and blow dry/style; get you in, get you out. Beauty Bar is not that type of place. I found them through the DevaCurl website under "find a salon" because I was looking for a stylist that knows curly hair. I reached out to Beauty Bar through their facebook. A stylist named Darlene got back to me pretty quickly. She is very knowledgeable about the DevaCurl system and has gone to NYC several times for their classes. I'm sure she has many more credentials than I am listing. She has been a stylist for a couple decades.I had my first DevaCut with Darlene last week. I had a 15 minute complimentary consultation beforehand. She was super patient. Washed and styled my hair; taught me some things. Also they have these mobile Deva dryers that you sit under; pretty cool.I think I was there for an hour and 45 minutes total. At the time I didn't realize that I wanted my hair shorter. This was a different cut than I was used to. But that night I realized I wanted it shorter so I contacted the salon and Darlene was able to fit me in a couple days later. I felt bad for having to come back but I wanted to be happy with my hair. But again, she was patient. So she cut my hair shorter and even washed/styled it. I am happier with my new summer do and I know I will be coming back. Read Less

Darlene just gave me the perfect curly haircut! I was a little nervous to have my first Deva cut, but the result was even better than I had imagined. Darlene and her assistant were both very attentive and made me feel like a star. Darlene never pressured me to buy any of the Deva products, but based on how my hair looked and felt afterwards, I just had to buy some! Coming from someone who has never spent more than $30 on a cut, the extra splurge was worth every penny. Don't hesitate to visit Darlene if you have curly hair. She really gets it! Read Less

先日、デラウェア方面へ行くついでに行ってみました。10分前に到着して、店内へ。受付の女性(Robin)は事務的で無愛想、温かみは感じられず。予約時刻まできっちり待たされる。(10分待った) 担当のSaikoは一度も挨拶に来ず。別のスタイリストがシャンプーをしてくれるとのことで、シャンプー台へ。シャンプーは普通で、可も不可もなくというところか。シャンプー終了後、濡れた髪のまま、店内の一角で待たされる。近くにあるカウンターに物を置いたが、細かな髪の毛がびっちりついてきたので、慌てて物をどける。20分後、カット台がある場所へ移動する。そこでさらに10分以上待たされる。待たされる時間が長いので、予約をする意味がないように思えた。店内:全体的に狭くて汚い。ホームページの開放的な画像と全く異なる。午前中に行ったにもかかわらず、床には髪の毛が飛び散っていて、鏡の前の棚の上にも細­かい髪の毛が散乱していたり、髪の毛がたくさんついたヘアブラシやコームが無造作に置いてあった。窓のサッシや、壁にまで髪の毛がへばり付いていて、日頃からこまめに掃除していないことが一目瞭然。お客の目につく場所が汚れていても平気な神経に疑問を抱く。今回の目的:ヘアカット。予約時刻から40分を過ぎて、ようやくカット開始。技術的にはPhiladelphiaのチャイナタウンにある美容室の美容師と同じぐらいのレベルに思えた。個人的には、チャイナタウンに軍配が上がる。(値段も4分の1以下なので) 日本人美容師=熟練した日本の技術、と早とちりした我が身を怨む。彼女は20代前半でアメリカへ来てるので、日本での美容師経験はほんの数年と思われる。(仮に日本で美容師免許を取得していても、それは30年前の話か?) 施術中は、ヘアドライアーの使い方を間違えているせいか、高温の熱風が直接地肌に当たって、とにかく痛かった。再訪は無いなとこの時点で確信。残念ながら、当方時々垣間見える彼女の人間性が苦手であり、おまけに店内の商品(スタイリング剤やシャンプーなど)を売りつけようと必死で、最初から最後までUncomfortableな滞在だった。カット代は60ドル。大目に見ても40ドルが妥当ではないか(技術面、ロケーション、その他)。オーナーだから、とチップを遠慮することはないので、行かれる方はキャッシュ(現金)をお忘れなく。支払い時のRobinの対応は相変わらず事務的で、何だかな~と思いつつ店内を後に。サロンで通常味わうリラックスする気分は皆無の経験だった。こうして、最初で最後の訪問は終了しました。当方には合わなかったというだけであって、Small Businessを助けたい、と思う心の優しい方や、技術うんぬんよりアメリカのサロンを日本語で体験してみたい、という方には向いている場所なのかもしれません。 Read Less

I will never go back to this salon I had my hair done in the spring at Beauty Bar and was super impressed until a professional left lighter on my hair for well over an hour. Needless to say my hair broke off! I went in for ombre and came out with all over highlights..I even brought pictures of what I wanted for an example.As soon as she started blow drying my hair I noticed more than a few strands in her hand.. red flag. Two days later I washed my hair and my hair began to break off and left like elastic... my hair was super healthy prior to that and I had long layers. I was respectful and called the salon asking to speak to Emily and she had me come in, she covered the bleach blonde pieces that were an inch long, up with a glaze and put a deep conditioner in, the color didn't take and my hair felt worse. I requested my money back and I was told Saiko doesn't wish to give you your money back because having you return is a pricy service that we did for free. Well well then okay.Over the next few months my shoulder length hair began to break off more and more everytime I washed my hair. I should have fought harder for my money and reported Emily to the cosmetology board because no one should leave lighter on for more than an hour. I guess I was just so upset having my hair break off. I went back to a more pricy but fantastic stylist in Wilmington near the riverfront and finally was able to get a longer Bob now that my hair is in better shape 6 months later. Lesson learned don't go to Beauty Bar. Read Less
