Devine's A Salon

I do not normally write bad reviews but in this case I feel I have to. I read the reviews online because I was looking for a professional to cut my hair, I have had long for over 10 years and just went to cost cutters, most of the time they did a really good job. Anyway I saw that they had a spa package for $43 so I decided to go. The facial was very nice but then the haircut. I got someone who seemed completely intimidated by the pictures of the hair cut I wanted but Jennifer reassured me that she could do it, I tried to relax after all I was probably just nervous. It was going ok and then she asked if I wanted bangs, I assumed very long bangs like in the picture, she said at my cheekbone I said ok, like the picture. Snip - I had bangs angled towards my nose instead of away. The hair cut continued...I knew she did not have a clue as to what to do to fix her mistake... Jennifer took over very aggressively and in a hurry after all she had 3 people waiting for her services. I wish I would have commanded a stop and rescheduled a time to fix this problem. Jennifer finished, the original hairdresser left before I did. I left barely looking in the mirror. The next morning I had to cut about a 1/2 inch off the left side to even it out with the right so I could go out in public (I had mentioned the unevenness of the cut to both stylists, to no avail). The style is unbalanced, a friend offered to try to fix it. It is difficult to do and the bob looks like something from 1990 instead of the stylish haircut I brought in. I will not be going back, not even for the rest of the package already paid. What is worse and the main reason I am writing this is there was no apology just, "your bangs will grow out sweetie."

I love this salon not only do they use the best products, but it is intimate and I love that about this place. Jennifer is the very best and I am also very happy with what she does each time I go and see her. This salon has a wide variety of services. I am serious you will not be disappointed!!!!

Wow! From the attention you get from the whole salon, the organic plant based products they only use, the BEST COLORING JOB I've ever had in 20 years. Reasonable prices for an ORGANIC experience. Why use anything else on your hair and breath in any chemicals. Sue listened to me but best of all she took her years of experience and made the colors match exactly the swatch. I cryed when I saw my BEAUTIFUL BLOND HAIR! Looking for a great colorist..GO TO SUE. ps. don't forget to ask LInda to make you an iced coffee....salon is small and quaint....laid back, everyone feels comfortable. Thank you Sue.....I love you!

I felt like I was a member of the cast in the movie, ""Steel Magnolias""! Everyone there had that small town feel and a totally friendly, I've known you forever attitude! I felt welcomed and at ease immediately on my very first appointment there! The cost and service provided are the best I've ever experienced. I was already excited about the fact that they are an Aveda concept salon, which carries all my favorite hair products! Linda did a fabulous job on my permanent make-up.... definitely a ""keeper""! I have already referred all my friends there!

Told me it was her second day working there. I'm a 25 year old male who was tired of doing the same old finger-length fade. But really didnt know what to do with the hair I had, so I told her to be creative. I love the result; it really looks great, and it's not a decision I would have come to on my own. Sue is creative, fun, sweet, and fit me to a style perfectly. I'll be back.
I chose Devine's because of the great reviews and want to thank the woman who wrote about her boyfriends experience. I'm a guy who decided to grow my hair a little longer and my wife liked it. Well, now I need a stylist -- not just another average franchise clipper. What a pleasant, productive experience.
I called this morning for a same-day appointment and Linda happened to answer. She asked me what I needed before answering my request. Upon hearing my story, she said she would be available at 3:15 today. There is enough information about the "quaint" quarters and friendly/professional staff, which I found to be true.
Here's the deal, this salon knows how to make a guy feel welcome. And I loved the attention and wonderful service I received. Linda is great and I couldn't be happier with the results.
Give this place a try, men. We already know how much the women love it.
Thank you , Linda. See you in 6-7 weeks!

I have only been in Phoenix for a week now. Just moved from Washington. Since I am living in a new city, new marriage, and pretty much new life, I wanted a new look. My niece and I decided to dye my hair blond from brown and I guess the place we got the stuff didn't tell us we may want more so we don't run out. Well we did run out and my hair was orange, brown, and blond. Things happen but, this was something I wanted to get fixed. After looking online and reading other reviews I called Devine's and made an appointment with Linda. When I walked in and Linda looked at my hair, it was WOW!! My hair was a disaster. Not knowing anyone in this town and Linda being an instructor I felt nervous, but I put my trust in her. It took a bit to fix, but the outcome was wonderful. My hair felt still healthy and the color was awesome. We talked and felt like I made a new friend here in town. I would refer anyone that wants a good stylist or salon to Linda in a heartbeat. Thank you, Thank you Linda, You saved my hair and now my husband feels like he has a new wife. I will be seeing you again and I promise I will never try to do my hair again by myself.
Devine's is a wonderful salon! This is my third winter in AZ and until I found this quaint and friendly salon I was not happy with finding a good stylist. Coming to AZ this year, I looked in the yellow pages and thought I would try a different salon with every haircut until I found one I liked. I got lucky with my first try. Jenny has cut my hair and given me the best short style I have had in a long time. I highly recommend her.

I recently moved to Arizona from Wisconsin and I found Devine's after searching for an Aveda salon online. The whole staff is very personable and even though I didn't know a soul in the new city, they made me feel right at home like I'd known them forever. I had a highlight and haircut by Jenny twice so far. The first time I went in I got a trim and a highlight and it was my favorite hair color ever...now I've gone a second time and this time for a color and a completely different hairstyle (I went with a short style compared to my normal shoulder length hair). I didn't think Jenny could do any better than the first time because I loved it so much, but this time was even better than the first because the cut looks amazing...and the color is too!! My husband loves it and says it couldn't fit my looks and personality any better. He has said how great it is about 10 times since I got home yesterday! I highly recommend Devine's.

I actually found Devine's by doing a Google search and read her great reviews. I decided to give it a shot. I have been having my hair colored and highlighted for years and I have to say that I have never been so pleased with the outcome until Linda did my hair. She is amazing! Aside from being super personable and friendly, she took the time to find out what I wanted and offered suggestions. She took my skin tone into consideration when searching for a color match. We even went outside to match me up in the sunlight. How's that for customer service! The color she chose for me was so perfect and the highlights are so natural looking. Love it, love it, love it! I cannot say enough good things about the work that this woman does. She also gave me a great cut! I will definitely be returning to Linda in the weeks to come. Thank you Linda for fixing my blah hair! I love it!

WOW!!! Is the first word that comes out when I think about Devines. Linda and her staff made me feel like home! I felt that I was talking to old friends. I walked in thinking I would just get a few inches off my hair but I came out with a new look! Linda was so helpful and so excited (I think more than I was) lol... I end up having a before & after picture!! I came out with very short hair, new color and a bag of the best product that I have ever had on my hair her shampoo is just the best...I LOVE IT! and I LOVE MY NEW LOOK!! Linda is officially my new stylist! Thank you Linda.

Linda made me feel right at home from the beginning. She takes the time to talk to you about what you want and really listens to what you say. She gives the best shampoo, all of that color residue is gone, no more itchy head later that night after a color.

I had a fantastic experience with Linda at Devine's.
Linda took the time to talk to me about what I wanted. I am ""hair challenged"" and needed help. Linda gave me a wonderful color and style! She showed me exactly what to do. She said I would love the hairstyle as it grew out, and I do! I cannot wait to go back!!

Devine's salon has been the best salon that I've ever been to. After getting my hair destroyed at another place I was in need of serious help. I checked out Devine's salon where they were able to take me in immediately due to my emergency. Linda and the staff were able to calm my nerves the second I walked in. Linda then proceeded to look me over and in less then an hour she saved my hair. I honestly have never been to such a great salon and I absolutely recommend this place!!

I haven't had a constant hair stylist for about 4 years and have had a hard time finding one that I really like. I came across Devine's after searching Google for hair salons close to home. It is such a cute salon and Linda did a great job cutting and styling my hair. The best part was that I have really thick hair that Linda described as ""enough for 4 heads"" and she used a very unique way of thinning it that has kept it thin even a month later. I definitely will be returning to Devine's!

I have never found a salon that I feel comfortable enough at, so I usually go to a new place every time I need a haircut. So, I pulled up Google Map and searched salons on my way home from work and found Devine's. I was initially attracted to it because the salon uses AVEDA products so I called and made an appointment. Well, the day of my app. came and I was running 30 min late, called the salon and they were more than willing to help get me in whenever I showed up. This is awesome, because most salons get really snooty about being late. The salon is small but it reminded me of some of the shops you would find in Old Town Scottsdale. I had Linda cut and style my hair and she was amazing. She was very welcoming and knowledgeable. They also have this awesome certificate special going on right now for a very low price. It included my first haircut and I can come back for some freebies and a lot of discounted services!! This salon I WILL RETURN TO :-)

My boyfriend has always just shaved his hair with a store bought razor, but I wanted him to get it styled. So 2 different times he went to great**ips and they just cut his hair and asked for the money.
So I went on Yellow Pages on his iPhone and found this salon. I found pictures of a style I thought would suite him and told him to ask for that, hoping he wouldn't come back with just a trim again.
When I got home later and saw his hair I was so amazed!! They did such a great job, the best thing about it was the woman who styled his hair didn't just use the template hairstyle, she took features and made the style suit; him instead if scissoring a generic style onto his scalp.
He did have to wait because he had no appointment, but the hair dressers were very nice, seemed to be very close, and he told me they even offered him something to eat! Lol.
All of this for only $20? He will not be going anywhere else for a haircut again!!!
Thank you!!!! Not only do I LOVE his hair now, but he actually takes time to style it now! Miracle workers!!

I went to Devines because my boyfriend refered me to Linda. When I went in for a consultation I was almost at the point of being hopeless from a previous bad dye job at a different place that I went to. Linda told me that all hope was not lost and told me all of her experience which ranges from doing hair for 39 years, owning her own salon for 21 years and even teaching beauty school.
Linda turned my ORANGE hair into the most beautiful color BLONDE I have ever seen. I will never go anywhere else again and I owe Linda so much for fixing my hair. She is such a kind, sweet woman and I would recommend her salon to anyone who needs anything from a cut to color!
