Went to Paul for the first time today. He was amazing! He taught us (sister and I) how to manage our curly hair from washing to styling. He was very patient and down to earth. We really enjoyed our visit. We didn’t feel rushed and then having me do it. It was a very interactive haircut and styling session! He is going to start offering classes on how to use a defuser, we can’t wait! AND I almost forgot, He also sent us a text with the information he shared during our session…HOW AMAZING is HE!!! We will certainly be back!! #ChicagosHairstylistNaturalCurlyHairWhisperer Paul, thank you again. Araceli & Eva Olivares

Before going to Paul, my last hair appointment was 5 years ago and let's just say things didnt go well for my hair. I hated it and decided to never to never go back to ahair salon again. However with much encouragement from my sister she showed me devacurl and what they have done for many curly haired girls! I was stunned and never made an appointment for anything faster than this. Then the day came for the appointment I was nervous but Paul, was absolutely amazing! I never thought I could learn so much in an hour about my curls. I realized I was making many mistakes which I thought were good things but paul helped clear out curly girl myths and facts. Very much appreciated. He also taught the proper way to diffuse your hair and keep curls looking nice and bounce. I really do recommend paul for any girl out there struggling with curly hair! He is your guide trust me! Dont overthink just book then appointment!

I saw Paul for the first time 2 days ago. He gave me an amazingly helpful tutorial, cut my hair beautifully, and I am now able to style it at home. Washing and styling it myself yesterday and today was as easy as he promised me it would be. Paul is relaxed and professional with so much knowledge he enjoys sharing. I wouldn't trust my curls to anyone else!

The entire hair cut session was so interactive and educational! I absolutely love how Paul teaches you his curly hair techniques that make noticeable differences in the way you wash and style your hair! And the private Loft suite brings a relaxing feel to your visit. You'll never go back to your old ways!! He really brought back the bounce and moisture to my curls, will continue to go back! - Sarah Gronowski

Went to Paul for the first time today all the way from St.Louis. He was amazing! He did a great cut but most importantly he taught me how to do my hair from washing to styling. He took so much time showing me and then having me do it. It was a very interactive haircut and styling session! He is going to start offering video classes that I highly recommend! Will be back for sure! He was also very down to earth. Really enjoyed my visit.

Paul did an amazing job. I have only been to a salon 3 times before this and came home crying each time because they left me with the dreaded “triangle hair”. So because of this I damage the $#!? out of my hair for the last 2 years by constantly straightening it... my hair lost all its bounce so the cycle continued. Paul have my hair life again and gave me confidence to wear my natural hair. Love him and worth every cent

No puedo estar mas contenta de mi sesion de corte y peinado con Paul. No solo me ha hecho un corte de pelo genial sino que tambien me explico como lavar, peinar y secar mi pelo en casa. Estoy deseando ponerlo en practica! Thanks Paul!

My hair was always full of knots and it was always dry. The day I went to the salon, my hair was washed but it was still full of knots and dry hair. Paul saw that and showed me how to wash my hair, what products to use, and how to dry my hair. I’m so thankful for learning about these things from Paul. My hair has transformed from a rats nest to beautiful curls. I don’t hate my hair anymore because of Paul. Paul’s a nice guy, so if you are looking for someone to help you understand your curls better, Paul is the one you’re looking for.

I want to send my sincere love to Paul. When I walked in he looked at me and couldn't believe what a train wreck my hair was. He took the time to explain everything, just show me everything and at the end made me beautiful. I would highly recommend him not only for his cutting skills but how he makes you feel that you are beautiful. All my love Paul. Doreen
