I'm new to California and was looking for a new stylist. I called Festoon to schedule an appointment, because they have Deva trained stylists. Making an appointment was super easy and everyone was friendly from moment I was making the appointment all the way through the end of my appointment. Samantha did a great job talking to me about my current cut, what I wanted to do long term and then explaining what she was going to do to shape my hair. She spent time showing me how to style it afterwards and gave me product suggestions. I highly recommend Festoon, and Samantha in particular, if you're looking for a great curly hair stylist!
