That sounds like an interesting technique and you got good styling results from it. I once had a hairstylist that twisted my hair up above my head into a pony tail and cut into it and I received similar results. The problem I had with it was I had bad, frizzy hair days on humid days. How did this cut work for you on humid days. Deva cuts are the only ones that I have gotten so far that look decent on humid days or even windy days.
