Today, NaturallyCurly, CurlStylist and Modern Salon magazine hosted a panel called Texture! at America's Beauty Show in Chicago.

America's Beauty Show is one of the beauty industry's largest trade shows, attended by stylists from all over the world.

Some quick snippets from our all-star lineup of panelists at the Texture! presentation:

Ouidad: I don't believe there's ethnicity to hair. Hair is hair!

Shari Harbinger of Deva: Curly hair is not a trend; it’s a lifestyle. Curly hair is a fact. It’s a start-to-finish occurance.

Jonathan Torch : You can take the greatest haircut but if you don’t know how to manage the frizz, it’s no good.

The entire panel agrees that communication between you and the client is critical.
