A different cutting technique.

MaxMax Posts: 125Registered Users
I have long 3B hair and have had it cut in a different ways. My favorite results have come from technique that involves twirling multiple strands of hair and then cutting into it going down - from the top to the bottom - which creates corkscrew curls and also takes out the bulk.
Deva seems to be everywhere because it's being sold, but nobody's championing this other kind of haircutting, and so nobody really talks about it - and I don't know who created it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about - and what it's called?*AND, does anyone know of anyone who does it well *in the Boston area or anywhere in Massachusetts or New Hampshire?

    this is how my friend cuts my hair. I havent had a deva cut so I can't compare them, though.

    Hmm I'd love more information of this too! Maybe before/after pictures.

    If I'm picturing it right its kind of like what's done to straight hair to layer it? I'm afraid that would create too much volume so maybe I'm wrong.
  • MaxMax Posts: 125Registered Users
    I don't know if it's what's done on straight hair, since I don't have that, but I do know that it takes volume out, rather than creating it....Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of me with the cut, since I didn't realize I was going to lose the person who did it - and thought I had plenty if time. Darn.

    I'm hoping that maybe someone else will know what I'm talking about - and maybe will have a photo or two.

    do you think it's the ouidad method, carve & slice?

    I've heard of this twist and cut method before, on this forum even, I think. I think it's a different thing from Ouidad's, and I think it's not exclusively for curls.

    Not sure, tho!

    I'm pretty positive that it's not the ouidad technique, since I've had that kind of haircut as well. This one creates really nice corkscrew curls - at least with my hair, which is 3b. Nothing else has done that...
