How did you learn to cut curly hair?

I began my curly hair journey in Yorkville @ a curly hair salon. I moved on from that salon and was educated in NYC at Deva in Lorraine Massey's last Curlaboration. I now work independently as a stylist and curl educator providing curly hair one on one coaching sessions.

What's your technique?

For sure dry cut is my preference (thank you Deva) with no comb!

What products do you like best?

I love Deva...Mixed Chicks but LOVE Ouidad. All equally great products...and live the way each product line in interchangeable to customize your curly client's style!

Any advice for other stylists?

Always do a thorough consultation! It is so important. You are setting the pace for what could be a lifetime client. I always repeat back to the client what they have requested to make sure we are on the same page. And!!!!...never be fearful to refuse to do a service on client's who have damaged hair or a service you don't think is suitable for their lifestyle...your client will appreciate your honesty.

What's the hottest curly trend?

I still love the tipping! But honestly going back to natural is the best and hottest curl with what you have and everything else will fall into place!
