How did you learn to cut curly hair?

From cutting classes, research and talking to other stylist who I admire their work. Also, I would invite challenging models to a free or in expenses cutting workshop at my salon.

What's your technique?

I first listen to my clients though a consultation before I begin. Depends upon the hair texture and face shape I may cut the hair in a wet stage, blow dry it first or naturally dry.

What products do you like best?

I like to use a variety of products depending upon texture. Miss Jessie’s, Mixed Chicks and Jane Carter are great for curly, kinky and wavy hair. If my clients want their hair naturally straight I use a Therma products.

Any advice for other stylists?

Listen to your clients, educate, practice, and learn. No matter how long you have been a Professional Stylist there is always a way to improve!

What's the hottest curly trend?

Always, whatever looks best on the client.
