How did you learn to cut curly hair?

I have naturally wavy hair myself. And My instructor in beauty college taught me alot about curls and cutting. I found out the types of curls require different length to curl properly.

What's your technique?

oNLY cut slightly damp hair.And do not pull hard on the strands when combing to cut. And don't cut drowned wet hair, it is to heavy and will have it shrink greatly as it drys. its ok to razor cut the ends of curly hair, but dont dive into the center thinking this is going to take out bulk. Because its just going to give you frizzy hair. Those short hairs you cut off are going to stick out like a sore thumb. unless you glue them together with lots of gel.

What products do you like best?

I like glaze products.

Any advice for other stylists?

Don't try to fight curls!! Let them work for you. Hair grows a certian way naturally and you cant change mother nature. But you can coax it alittle!

What's the hottest curly trend?

Taylor Swift look !
