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?
