Sarah Stevens
With 30 years of experience, Sarah is the red-headed, curly haired proprietress of Kiss Kiss Salon. She started out as a curly specialist, apprenticing at Alder West, where she spent seven years. She then did a two-year stint in New York City, at Classic Cuts, working with Roger Thompson trained professionals. Back home in Portland she spent 15 years as the co-proprietress , with Lee Conrad, of Conrad Stevens 4 Hair in NW.

Over ten years ago, she purchased the 1902 house in North Portland that became Kiss Kiss, to reinvest in her neighborhood and community. Sarah was on the early cusp of the curly girl revolution, training with Lorraine Massey.

Just getting started?
Read the book that started a hair revolution!

"Curly Girl, The Handbook" is an essential read for curly folks. Learn how to care for your special hair correctly - maybe for the first time in your life!

Pricing:
 We charge $100 for your first appointment and $70 thereafter.
That first appointment takes 1.5 hours and includes a consultation, the dry Deva cut, cleansing and styling products, along with education on how to care for your curls. 
 
After a consultation with you, we move on to the dry Deva cut. This is followed by the Deva Transformation Service, in which we select the best cleansing and styling products for your hair. We will dry your hair either under one of our dryers that do not disturb the curls or with a diffuser. When your curls are dry, we will check the haircut to make sure all the curls are sitting properly and adjust as necessary. In addition, we may discuss various techniques for extending the life of a cleansing so that you don’t have to wet your hair every day (Buddha bun, wrapping hair with stretch material for drying and/or showering, etc.).  

How to prepare for your Deva cut:
In order for us to do our dry Deva cuts properly, we need to see the natural curl patterns. We kindly ask that you please:

—  Do not put your hair up in any way before your appointment. No clips, barrettes, hair ties, buns, pony tails, etc. 

—  Make sure your hair is dry.

— C ome in with your hair as close to clean and as detangled as possible, with as little product as you may need. This means that you might fully cleanse or wet down and detangle your hair with conditioner either the morning of or day before your appointment. But please, no more than two days before your appointment. If your hair hair is too tangly, or is too sticky with product, we will have a very difficult time getting our fingers through your hair during the dry cut. This pulling may be painful for you and it is unnecessarily time consuming for us.
