Deneen Co-Owner's new location – DeKwa is closed after 10 years of great business. I am Deneen the Co-Owner of DeKwa and I am excited to announce I am working with the James Patrick Salon in the Sea Port/Fort Point Channel area of Boston. There is validated parking for all clients. Call 617-947-1914 or email me at Channeldeneen@gmail (dot com) for an appointment. I look forward to seeing you!
Brazilian Keratin Treatment is AMAZING!! – I have been going to Deneen for 13 years. I moved to Boston and by luck found her at another salon when I was looking for highlights. She does the best highlights bar none. She also styled my hair for my wedding a few years ago. It was gorgeous and I loved it even more than my dress! It made me feel beautiful on my special day. Finally, she convinced me to try the Brazilian Keratin Treatment which I have now done twice. Its the best thing I've ever done. No more flat ironing, spending hours with a blow dryer. It takes minutes and looks great! Try it- you won't regret it!!
Locks of Love! Do it! – I got my hair cut here to donate to Locks of Love. I don't know why more people don't do it. The people are really nice, the service is fabulous, and it's free! Cherylann was a sweetheart. I was nervous because I hadn't gotten so much cut in a while, but she totally calmed my nerves and did exactly what I wanted. I was so so happy with my cut. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Want a hair cut that means everyday is a good day? – When you have a great haircut, you can wear rags or riches and always look terrific. When you have someone who knows hair, who can look at your face and complement it with a cut that looks as good on day 45 as it does on day 1, you're in real luck. I can't tell you how long I looked for someone who knew how to cut hair, and who made me look good. I found Deneen about four years ago, and haven't had one bad haircut in all that time. I love her!
No more bad hair days since Betty has ben my hairdresser! – I am very particular about my personal appearance and have been to many salons in and out of Boston. Since I found Betty, my hair has been fabulous. Ever since I started going to Betty, even strangers compliment the color and cut. Betty's expert work has been further enhanced by Keratin treatments, which I started in the spring. I exercise a lot, and the Keratin has made taking care of my hair much easier. Additionally, Betty does eyelash extensions, which I cannot live without. No more wasted $$$ on the latest mascara and tedious efforts applying it. I can actually apply every day make-up in less than 10 minutes now that I do not have to labor over mascara. For me, the ambiance at Dekwa is perfect -- no Newbury St condescending attitude. Given the quality of workmanship, the personal attention, and the time I save because I do not have to fuss with hair and make-up, I feel the pricing is very reasonable. The results make dealing with the parking hassle worth the effort.
Brazilian Keratin Treatment – I just got the Brazilian Keratin treatment done for the second time at DeKwa. It was great, my hair came out so nice. And the great thing is that it didnt even damage my hair because it was a subsitute for flomohydrat. Which means the product was Great. Which means, that DeKwa uses products that are top of the line. This is a five star salon, my stylist Betty was awsomee! She kept me entertained, and when i was cold she even got me a blanket. i had a great expericance there. They have great service, great stylist, great products, and very good haircuts. By the way; i did get my hair cut . And it came out just the way i wanted. I give five big starts to this salon, and recomend it to anyone thats intrested in a great experience you wont forget or regret .
Fabulous cut and color – I recently had the pleasure of having my hair cut and highlighted by Deneen at Dekwa Elements of Hair. In the past at other salons I've had to give more description of the color I wanted, yet, never really quite got the color I was hoping for. Deneen just "got it" - and she also just knew what my hair needed in terms of the cut as well. I am amazed at how much better my hair falls, how much better my hair feels, and how much healthier it is since my visit to Dekwa. I love love love the Dekwa spray in straightener product - I almost never have to plug my flat iron in and can simply just dry it straight with the use of this stuff. Their shampoos and conditions rock too. I love this place!
Great Hair Cut!! Locks of Love – f you are thinking about going to see KYLE, RUN DON'T WALK! I got a Locks of Love hair cut and I was very nervous as I have always had long hair. Kyle made it simple and easy, and made me laugh the whole time. Cut four pony tails...wash felt great with mint like tingles on my scalp! Kyle gave me the exact cut I was looking for. I walked out of the salon feeling like a million bucks. My cut was free because of a scheduling mix up, normally Kyle is $25 Locks of Love. Everyone seemed friendly and the salon had a nice clean feel to it.
Locks of Love is a great thing to begin with, if you are thinking about donating your hair Kyle will make you feel at ease and you get pampered at a high end salon for a 'super cuts' price!
Yuko and Keratin Straightning saved my hair!!! – I was ready to cut off the long hair I have had all of my life. It is EXTREMELY nappy, frizzy and completely unruly. When I was younger, my hair was naturally curly but as I got older the curls turned to ugly frizz. I called Betty Hawes to ask her to cut it all off. Knowing that I am really attached to my long hair, she suggested we try the Yuko/Keratin process. I AM IN LOVE!!!! I can wash it and just go. No more hours with the blowdryer and flat iron getting it to look straight and shinny only to be a frizz ball as soon as I walk outside. No more worrying about getting caught in th rain and ending up with an afro! So I have to say thank you to Betty for giving me an alternative to the crew cut I was ready for!
Bad experience with Japanese straightening & Betty – Back in October (9 months ago) I did the Japanese hair strightening with Betty. I did my research and thought about this for years.....and was extremely disappointed with the outcome. I hesitated to write anything before now because I didn't want to be responsible for ruining somebody' reputation. But when I saw the previous complaint I decided that I should let other people know that my hair was totally destroyed by this salon. My hair is still fried, takes just as long to style,& the salon never refunded any money even when I went back and showed them my hair. They did re-touch a few places which were just horrific but they made me feel badly about coming back in and pretended everything was fine....even though I could tell that they knew it wasn't. My intent is not to ruin their reputation but to let other people know not to use the salon for this service....I will show you my hair!!
