Lately, we're seeing our guests with naturally curly hair embrace their natural curl and texture. They are choosing to keep their length and are excited to show off the natural movement and texture that only curly hair provides!
As stylists, we need to be prepared with the right techniques, tools & products that will enable us to collapse bulk and remove weight where it's needed in curly hair to create a beautiful shape and silhouette.
The technique you're about to learn will allow you to remove unwanted weight and bulk without creating frizz or exploding the hair shaft in curly hair. When cutting curly hair remember this phrase, "the ends need friends." Curly hair likes to hang out in groups and if you texturize curly hair it will cause the curls to frizz and explode because they have nothing to cling to. That is why this 3-2-1 brick laying technique you are about to see is so important when it comes to removing weight and collapsing bulk inside of naturally curly hair.
The total weight removal is only around 10-15% but the bulk you are removing is substantial and will allow the shape of the curls to appear leaner and your silhouette more defined
Give this 3-2-1 brick laying technique a try the next time you have a guest with naturally curly hair and we promise that you will love the results!
