How did you learn to cut curly hair?

As a student of the Graham Webb International Academy, I was taught the appreciation of natural texture and hair movement, as well as to cut without boundaries.

What's your technique?

I focus on solid layers that accent the client's unique bone structure and curl pattern. I usually cut wet hair instead of dry, as I find the client's ends stay manicured longer, and the cut is more accurate.

What products do you like best?

I LOVE DevaCurl, however Eufora is over-the-top amazing, as well as Alterna products. I focus on anything that is sulfate/sodium chloride-free and moisturizing.

Any advice for other stylists?

Take your clients out of their comfort zone and into your knowledge bank. They will appreciate your craft and trust your judgement forever.

What's the hottest curly trend?

Happy to be nappy! More and more I see ladies getting rid of their relaxers, flat irons, blow dryers, extensions, and just going for the gusto! Not to mention the natural texture influx in updos and wedding styles! I LOVE IT!
