How did you learn to cut curly hair?

I am a natural curly head that understands the "inconsistent nature" and unruliness of wavy-curly hair. I attract clients with similar challenges and relate well.

What's your technique?

1) respecting the natural growth pattern of client 2) listening to what I refer to as the "client's comfort-curly zone" (whereas-"cut" may mean "slight trim") with a curly style and, 3) color-treated, fine, or thick texture, may all have a significant impact on style and cut approach.

What products do you like best?

For fine textured curly hair a light mousse or light shine product (Paul Mitchell is nice). For medium - thick, a heavier mousse and shine product or gel.

Any advice for other stylists?

Curly hair is as loved as the popular "Brazilian blow-out" look. For those clients who prefer to remain friendly with their curly look, encourage how to appreciate a less frizzy-shaped style that will enhance their features and look good at a healthy length.

What's the hottest curly trend?

I believe the current "anti-frizz" smoothing treatment that encourages soft, smooth and shiny waves without loosing the body that some smoothing treatments end up with.
