How did you learn to cut curly hair?

I read books by Lorainne Massey and from practicing on my fiance, clients and friends.

What's your technique?

I cut curl by curl, slide cutting, razor to remove weight and twisting version of graduation.

What products do you like best?

Whipped cream, stylixer, lavender, lemons, hair resort and easy rider.

Any advice for other stylists?

It's more important what you leave on, than what you take off. Always cut curly hair dry, so you can see where it lives and try not to disturb the curl.

What's the hottest curly trend?

Hair resort by Kevin Murphy and pin curl clips, then use either a hooded dryer or diffuser (if you don't have a diffuser, cup the curls with your hand and blow dry around--your hand will act as a diffuser).
