I Need A Curly Haircut In My Life!

During the premiere of “Reed Between The Lines”, I noticed Tracee Ellis Ross’ fab curly hair cut. Of course I had to tell her (since she is my big sister in my head lol) and she actually responded back. lol

I think it is sooo important to have a great cut for curly hair. Like my hair now being one length is so blah!  It doesn’t fall right. I want it to fall into bouncy curls…not look like a triangle head lol. Instead of bulky at the bottom, I want it to be weightless and not bulky in any particular place. So…where to go..

From the Ouidad Site:

Ouidad Cut: Carving & Slicing

Carving & Slicing is a Ouidad unique haircut created 25 years ago specifically with your curls and waves in mind. It’s so unique that the US Trademark Office recognizes it with its own trademark. Essentially, Carving & Slicing removes the bulk associated with the dreaded “pyramid” look, while preserving and enhancing your natural curl pattern. This combination produces well-defined ringlets that fit gently into each other like puzzle pieces creating healthier, more manageable curls. It’s only available at Ouidad salons so beware of stylists claiming to “Carve & Slice” without the intense training, knowledge and understanding of curly hair that only the Curl Experts at Ouidad salons receive.

NY and Santa Monica, CA. They have certified salons throughout the country.



From the Deva site:

Deva Cutting:

The Deva Cutting technique is Devachan’s revolutionary method for cutting curly hair. The hair is cut dry, simply because we wear our hair dry not wet. We cut the hair in its natural form, curl by curl. Since curly hair and it’s spring factor can be misinterpreted while wet. This unique innovation allows the stylist to sculpt each client’s hair, according to their individual curl, look, and style. Along self curl care lesson to take you beyond the salon.

NY. There are several Deva trained stylist and salons throughout the US


I’m sure there are salons all over that cut curly hair but I am always nervous. MOST stylists, don’t know how to cut curly hair for style. They cut hair for how it will look straight. Just research wherever you go and check out reviews to see how they did the cut.

In the Spring, I want a perfect haircut that is “stacked” like Tracee Ellis Ross calls it. I don’t want to get rid of the length…but want all the bulkiness gone and want it to fall nicely. I can’t wait until the spring … and Fall just started….:sigh:….so it’s actually on to Straightening Season for me (future post). I like to switch it up of course…

If you have gotten a curly haircut, where did you go and what method did they use? (cut while wet/dry, etc…)
