How did you learn to cut curly hair?

I started cutting my own hair. After beauty school, I apprenticed under a couple of curly hair specialists and absorbed everything I could about what not to do. I attended the Devachqn class in New York City in 2010.

What's your technique?

I use a mixture of of techniques depending on the client and his/her needs. I love harnessing the potential in a curl.

What products do you like best?

I use Deva Curl in the salon but I like a lot of lines. I am not snob anymore because products for curls are getting better.

Any advice for other stylists?

Listen to your client. Always ask what he/she is willing to do at home before locking him/her into a style. Curly hair takes a long time to grow out.

What's the hottest curly trend?

Curly bangs
