How did you learn to cut curly hair?

I have curly hair and I just did the opposite of what was done to me like cutting my hair as if it was straight,or not thinking of how long the hair will be when it drys etc. I was always traumatized as a child after leaving the salon because of the way I looked after I left, frizzy and too short with the look of a pyramid on my head.

What's your technique?

I have many techniques it all depends on the type of curl and whether the client straightens their hair and how often.

What products do you like best?

Deva Curl, Chi

Any advice for other stylists?

Always be aware of how the natural curl of the hair will affect the hair cut try to go with the curl not work against it.

What's the hottest curly trend?

Tousled, soft and natural
