Cutting curly hair is completely different than cutting straight or even wavy hair . The initial cut must be done on clean dry hair. To cut curly hair one must truly carve the shape. To begin much of the cutting is done with a T edger. It is more like hedge trimming than hair cutting. After the rough shape of the hair is cut this way, the hair may be shampooed and re-cut wet. Even then, Ian tells his curly hair clients that when they do their hair themselves, it may pull up differently than it has in the salon. If that does occur, Ian encourages them to return so that can touch up the cut at no additional charge. It is a more time consuming procedure, so please advise Ian at the time you make your appointment, so that he can plan accordingly. Always remember: no cut can change the texture of your hair. If you come in with curly hair you will leave with curly hair.
