How did you learn to cut curly hair?

Living in Cyprus, where 90% of women have curly hair, I didn't have a choice in the matter. I had to learn how to cut curly hair at the age of 12. It was part of the culture and vital in wanting to be a hairdresser. Cutting curly hair comes naturally for me.

What's your technique?

I like to use the Curlisto cutting method. There is no one technique but different according to the hair texture that I'm working on. Since curly hair has a mind of its own, you have to take every curl into consideration for the best style. I use a texturizing techniques as well as versus diagonal angels so that I can give my clients to wear their hair both curly and straight, if they choose.

What products do you like best?

Curlisto. It is not just any line of hair care product-it is specifically made for all curly hair textures. It is the biggest line today that covers curly hair texture.

Any advice for other stylists?

You are welcome to try my Curlisto products by calling 212-997-8800 and asking for your free salon professional starter kit. If you would like to become a curly hair specialist, the best advice that I can give is that you make sure that you take it serious and put a lot of effort into it. Women with curly hair have a hard time finding someone who known how to manage their curly hair and will not settle for mediocre haircuts from stylists that claim how to know curly hair but don't.

What's the hottest curly trend?

The hottest curly trend it is whatever looks good on your client. In order to deliver the best possible style and not create a fashion victim, you have to take your clients facial structures and hair texture into consideration.
