Cutting Curly Hair???

Hi :] I just need somebody to clarify something; when you cut curly hair (similar to a deva cut/curl by curl) do you cut the individual curl on an angle or just straight across it? Also, I've heard that you're supposed to cut it at the beginning of each 'c', but what if you just want to dust the ends on a looser-curly client and each curl is bigger, so you would be cutting more off than needed?? it's kinda confusing, lol
Thanks

    You should not take any risk when it is related to hair as it is the main part of your face so you should contact proper beauticians who will guide you right way

    Pfft! I chopped my own hair off in August and it's pretty much awesome.

    AlannahAngel, if you insist on cutting your own hair, I would recommend that you twist each curl in it's natural direction until it is like a tight little rope, and cut it at a slight angle. There are quite a few DIY haircut threads now, with a lot of good tips from members with all different hair types. Good luck!

    OperaCurls - I checked out your Fotki & your hair is amazing!!!!!!!!! Is that how you cut your own hair? How you twist and cut? Cool! I'm just sick of bad hair cuts and growing out and I think if I can cut my own hair then I can save the tears AND the money, lol. It is a good skill to know :] Once again, thanks

    PROCEED WITH CAUTION! I snipped away at my hair over the course of a week, a little bit at a time, until it ended up where it is now. I explained what I did in this thread: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/showthread.php?t=77273
    The current short cut is on page #2.
