Looking for a Minneapolis curly hair stylist without the Deva nonsense.

I'm looking for a hair stylist in Minneapolis who is good with curly hair, but will do a wet cut. Any recommendations?

I have lost all patience with Deva-trained stylists and cutting dry hair "curl by curl" and what have you. Even the non-Deva stylists insist on a dry cut, which leaves my hair shapeless. When I'm trying to get an inverted bob, I want cleaner lines. On the other hand, I tried going to a unknown stylist last time and she had no experience with curly hair, so she did the wet cut but didn't know how to fine-tune afterwards. (There were thinning shears. It was bad.)

So can you recommend someone who will do a wet cut on curly hair in Minneapolis? St. Paul or eastern suburbs would be okay too as I work out that way.

I apologize, I'm not local, but I know the Ouidad method cuts curls wet and yelp says this stylist does their style. Maybe that'll provide a lead or useful search term, at least.

Oh - and there are a few salons in the metro area listed on their own salon locator as well.

I've had good experiences with stylists at Uptown Curl (specifically Daisy and Carolyn, though Carolyn might have moved salons.) A curly headed friend said the Hive had some stylists that worked with curly hair and didn't do Deva. They didn't have a dedicated stylist and went to random ones. However, looking at their site, you can see which stylists specialize in curly hair.

My friend swears by Curl Power salon on Franklin.
