How did you learn to cut curly hair?

I learn to cut curly hair while I lived in Spain 17 years ago.The majority of my clients there had curly or wavey hair and had difficulty managing it.

What's your technique?

I like to start the perimeter and overall shape on wet hair ,and then I use sculpting tecniques when it is dry.This creates softer seams on the layers and texturizes the ends.

What products do you like best?

I like to use moisturizing shampoo and conditioner because curly hair is drier.To style I use creams and leave-in treatments to nurish and hydrate the curls.

Any advice for other stylists?

When cutting curly hair remember to keep layers long ,so the look is not round and dated.

What's the hottest curly trend?

I like the ombree hi-lites look on curly hair.It adds dimension and light to heavy thick hair.
