How did you learn to cut curly hair?

I am a certified curly hair specialist through Deva Curl and Devachan salons in NYC. I traveled to NYC and participated in their hands-on certification course.

What's your technique?

For those who strictly wear their hair natural, I cut with the Deva technique. For those who want the ability to wear their hair natural, but also smooth it out on occasion, I combine my Sassoon training with the Deva technique, yet still do not comb the hair.

What products do you like best?

Deva Curl and Deva Care.

Any advice for other stylists?

Unless you follow the Deva system completely, you won't get the same result with other products. It just doesn't compare. It's also in the amount of product - - don't skimp!
