As textured hair specialists, we look for innovative ways to treat, enhance and protect curly hair. Traditional cutting techniques are for straight hair. For a client who always wears her hair natural, she would have it blow-dried straight to receive a trim or cut. A cutting technique called Deva Cut gives curly girls an option.
Camille is a Creative Stylist at Cole Stevens on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. She was trained by a Deva Curl Academy Educator on the technique of cutting hair in its natural state to achieve an optimal curly style. She gives us insight into what makes this option ideal.
